New Website Design Wins Horizon Interactive Award

Summit Steel wins Horizon Interactive Award

We are proud to announce that Summit Steel has earned Gold Winner status in the responsive/mobile design category as part of the 2018 Horizon Interactive Awards. In 2018, we launched our newly redesigned website in an effort to provide a best-in-class user experience to create streamlined access to the products and services our customers and prospective customers need. This award is confirmation that the vision with which this project started is realized in the final product.

The new Summit Steel website was chosen from among 800-plus entries from more than 20 countries, including the United States, Austria, Belgium, Canada, India, Ireland, Italy, Japan, Spain, Sri Lanka, Switzerland and the United Kingdom. At Summit Steel, we can now proudly say that we provide one of the best website experiences in the world.

The Importance of User Experience

In the 1990s, it became important to have a website that shared any company’s products/services, leadership team and values. In the 2000s, the importance of web design and aesthetics began to increase. In the 2010s, the relevance of mobile and responsive design stepped into the spotlight as more and more Internet users looked for products and services on mobile devices.

Today, about half of all Internet traffic is on mobile devices. So-called “responsive” design simply means that visitors to a certain website get an appropriately different interface when browsing on a desktop or laptop vs. a tablet vs. a mobile device. Without responsive design and without a user experience that is meant specifically for mobile users, visitors to any website will not be able to properly navigate the site and find the information they need.

At Summit Steel, we always want our website to be highly useful to those who are searching on mobile devices. But usability isn’t the only priority. We also want a visually attractive website that conveys who we are, what we provide and what we stand for. This new website brings together those priorities in a visually attractive interface that is highly usable on a range of devices.
