Award Winning Website…But What Does it Mean?

ILLUME Wins a Gold ADDY Award

This Saturday, the ILLUME website received a Gold ADDY Award at the 35th Annual American Advertising Federation Tucson (AAF Tucson). This website was made possible with the awesome team at Creative Slice in close collaboration with our ILLUME marketing team. We couldn’t be more thrilled.

We put our heart into every project, down to the tiniest detail. It was critical that our website maintained the same feel. We want everything we produce to be beautiful, sterling quality, and crafted to perfection.

This work is deeply personal for us– a clean energy future touches the lives of our families and our communities. For this reason, we filled our website with people we love and admire.

Saun-Toy is a fierce, local advocate for vulnerable children and a pillar of social change in her community. She epitomizes what it means to live a full and vibrant life.

Since the beginning, we’ve tried to give back wherever we go. From supporting local businesses over chains, to contributing to flood relief in 2013 at our very first ESource conference, to supporting organizations like The India Project.

We saw our website as an opportunity to do just that. All of our models participated in the photo shoot to raise money for Oakland-based nonprofit, Youth Uprising. As a result, we were able to dedicate scholarship funding for a young lady to engage in a STEM internship.

As we know in the energy efficiency field, it’s our day-to-day choices that define us. Even small choices, whether it is a website or a memo, reflect our values and our goals. ILLUME’s goal to be an engine for vibrant and healthy communities by fostering clean energy development and by directly empowering and connecting with the communities we love. Be it our communities in Oakland, Madison, Tucson, or one of the many other places we’ve called home.

Thank you so much to all of our colleagues and clients who participate in helping us realize this vision. It feels great to be recognized and we will continue to pay it forward. Watch the video of the making of our award-winning website!
