2018 Winners

Florida Title Insurance Co. (FTIC)
FTIC took an intentional approach to making a mundane product, such as title insurance, fun. The homepage is interactive: The cursor causes the main water photo to “ripple” as you navigate the page. The links, including “Title Insurance for Dummies,” “Who Pays for What,” “70+ Ways to Lose Your Property,” and “Mission Kreplach,” details the company’s values, provide useful consumer information in an entertaining way.
Westcor
As the first point of contact many people will have with Westcor, they wanted the website to reflect both company culture and their Number One asset that makes Westcor: their employees. They greatly simplified the design of the site, added new features that make browsing, “contact us” and getting more info on becoming an agent much easier.
