Lichty Guitars’ Website – 2013 Silver Davey Award Winner in Music Category
We strive to have every touch-point with Lichty Guitars to be as resonate as the instruments Jay builds. Though it is forever a work in-progress, our website is, for many, the very first experience that they have with Lichty Guitars. My goal is to convey via the website the quality, the feel and the voice of the guitars and ukuleles that Jay so skillfully crafts. We have just received notification that lichtyguitars.com won a 2013 Davey Award (Silver) in the Music category. To have our site recognized in the midst of over 4000 international entires and in the midst of some big time marketing and advertising firms is a thrill.
I particularly like this description of this awards program –
David defeated the mighty Goliath with a big idea and a little rock. That is the sort of thing small firms do every day. The Davey Awards honors the achievement of the “Creative David’s” where strength comes from ideas, intelligence and out-of-the-box thinking, not a “Giant’s” bankroll. Great work is about fresh ideas and exceptional execution, not the biggest budgets. The Davey levels the playing field so entrants compete with only their peers and can win the recognition they deserve.
