In 2015, Awaken Solutions was commissioned to build the new website for the International ArtsGames Committee (IAC), in advance of their global launch of the ArtsGames in Rio.
Up until 1948, medaled arts competitions were part of the Olympic Games, but were eliminated to maintain the Games’ amateur status. In 2018, ArtsGames will bring them back. The most talented artists from 196 countries, across 6 continents will compete for the gold, silver and bronze, introducing the greatest assembly of talent on the world’s largest stage.
The ArtsGames website was built with a beautiful and inviting design that introduces the ArtsGames mission and showcases the five ArtsGames commissions of Dance, Music, Literature, Media Arts and Visual Arts.
Rio Global Launch
The global launch of the ArtsGames took place in Rio, alongside the Olympic games, in August 2016. Awaken Solutions was responsible for building, rolling out and maintaining a scalable system of associated pages to support this launch, including press releases, attendee information, video feeds and social media streams (Instagram, Facebook, Twitter).
Awaken Solutions has helped us create the image we want to project to the world. They bring such a high level of professionalism, knowledge, problem solving and aesthetic sensitivity that is impressive in today's world. Awaken Solutions truly is a business partner; keeping abreast of any problems, quickly delivering solutions, and always responsive. A+!
