“Having awarded the best of the web for 17 years, we are constantly impressed by the extent of creativity showcased by our Webby Honorees.  Your work continually furthers the scope of online innovation, setting the standard of excellence on the web,” wrote David-Michel Davies, executive director of The International Academy of Digital Arts and Sciences. “We want to extend our thanks to you and your team for producing remarkable work for us to recognize.”

At Thornley Fallis / 76design, we wanted to find a way to humanize technology with video storytelling.  QNX is doing some of the most innovative work in the world, but sometimes it’s challenging to articulate to the general public how that work will affect the average person. This video represents a vision of the near future. Clearly it resonated with audiences and with the Academy as well.

“We wanted to tell a story that people could relate to — a story that isn’t just about technology but about transformation,” said Megan Alink, director of marketing communications at QNX Software Systems. “Mike and his team helped breathe life into our vision of the future where cars aren’t simply connected to wireless networks, they are integrated into the whole experience to improve driver awareness.”
