Web awards

And last but by no means least, Cyber-Duck have been awarded the Web Awards for their work on the London Cardiovascular Clinic and EGS websites. The London Cardiovascular Clinic won a 2012 WebAward in the Best Health Care website category and absolutely stormed past that of their competition.

Cyber-Duck were also rewarded for their hard work on the EGS website. The EGS website picked up the award in the outstanding website category with the judges stating: "Kudos for such a simple and clean site with the right amount of graphics to add visual interest. Nice visual timeline on the history page. Great photos on the team page, not the usual portrait, but taken at interesting angles."

Understandably all the Cyber-Duck team members were delighted with the latest awards, and the directors wanted to pay special thanks to all the staff members who worked on the project, as well as the clients who were continually involved throughout the entirety of both projects.
