Hermes Creative Awards Company: Newport Beach and Company
Title of Entry: Visit Newport Beach Website
Location: Newport Beach, California
Category: 102. Nonprofit

visit-newport-beachThe nonprofit division Visit Newport Beach Inc. of Newport Beach and Company created a fantastic mobile friendly site, visitnewportbeach.com, to support the tourism economy of the California city.

Besides the standard information one would expect on such a site, Visit Newport Beach makes it easy and convenient for visitors to book hotels, flights and packages with help from the Travelocity Partner Network.

Visit Newport Beach also features an interactive map for desktop and tablet visitors with stunning visuals of favorite destinations around town. If that’s not enough, the site includes ambient noise from the top spots – such as waves crashing into the beach – so site visitors are transported to that particular destination.

Small touches also enhance the site, such as the display of the current temperature and surf report in the top navigation. The city’s tweets from Twitter account @newportbeach are also integrated into the homepage.

Between the variety of media and wealth of information showcasing the coastal city, the makers of the site demonstrate a clear understanding of the digital trends dominating our world and used an arsenal of tools to create an online experience that gives visitors the best taste of Newport Beach you can have without an actual visit.
