Established in 1996, the Spiders are the most prestigious digital awards ceremony in Ireland. This year marks the 25th anniversary of the iconic Spider Awards. As the longest-running digital awards programme in Ireland, they are dedicated to recognising companies and individuals driving digital excellence in every aspect of their ethos.
Avalanche are honoured to be nominated for Agency of the Year (<10 staff) at the 2022 Spiders.
This is our 5th nomination in 8 years & our first win at the Spiders would be a fantastic way to mark what will be our tenth year in business later on this year. We have been uncharacteristically quiet in the first two months of 2022 as we have been really busy working with several new clients and it seems like it was just last week we were celebrating Christmas!
A big reason we are in a position to be nominated in The Spiders is that we have expanded in recent years to a team of 8, this has allowed us to become one of the most productive & highest rated agencies in Europe with many fantastic clients choosing Avalanche as their digital partner.
Our list of clients is wide and varied from large Fintech companies like Fenergo (achieved Unicorn status ($1B Valuation) in April 2021, becoming only the State’s third official Irish tech unicorn), Kerry GAA, Welltel & over 90 internationally trading businesses, all the way down to SME's dotted all over the world.
While these are a sample of our "headline" clients, it is the same approach we take with all of our clients regardless of their budget and needs, from full eCommerce solutions to simple brochure sites.
This has allowed us to grow into one of the most productive agencies in Europe, over the last 12-36 months, we have been able to streamline our process, with a new project launched every 3.9 days on average.
All work has been completed in-house without any outsourcing, without a drop in quality, with each client brief adhered to whilst guiding them toward best practice. There is a fantastic team in place here and I am just a very small part of that, and I have to give a special mention to Tommy & Francis who complete great work in their sectors in particular.
Ensuring all our clients are blown away with their results is what separates us from the many competitors in a very oversaturated market and has allowed us to grow steadily despite the ongoing pandemic over the past few years.
At Avalanche, our aim on every project is to create something that surpasses client expectations whilst also trying to think outside of the box in terms of our design work. This is one of the reasons for our longevity in a crowded space as we approach every project with this idea; Avalanche doesn't follow web design trends. We set them.
You can view all of the finalists here and we very much look forward to meeting everyone on the night, it will be great to get all dressed up as the event has not been held in a while due to COVID.
Congratulations to all of our fellow nominees and as always, we will aim for winning an award for the Kingdom!
