We’re excited to share that the new and revamped version of our website, launched in November 2019, has won three awards.
Our site was recognized in the 2019 Vega Digital Awards:
– Canopus (highest honors) in the Website, User Experience category (link)
– Centauri (2nd highest honors) in the Website, Visual Appeal category (link)
BicycleCoalition.org was also recognized in the 2020 AVA Digital Awards by the Association of Marketing and Communications Professionals with a Platinum (highest honors) in Creativity (Web Design), Website Redesign categories (link).
A huge shoutout to Key Medium, and its founder & Bicycle Coalition member Ali, who was responsible for development, design, and revamp of our branding. We hope that the new site provides better resources to encourage people across Greater Philadelphia to integrate bicycling into their lives to increase access to opportunities, enrich community, and improve health. We are also hopeful that this more accessible and engaging version of our website will mobilize people to participate in our advocacy and get more involved in the issues that impact their communities.
We hope you enjoy our new website as much as the critics. If you have feedback or suggestions, please reach out to Ashley.
After graduating from Swarthmore College, Ashley moved to Philadelphia to work in nonprofit development and communications as a Philly Fellow. She was introduced to the Bicycle Coalition’s work in her first week of the fellowship through an Urban Riding Basics class. She did not take up bicycling in the city until getting involved with the Women Bike PHL community, which catalyzed her to shed her fear of riding in traffic and get on a bike. Ashley’s bike has served as a powerful tool, and she is excited to share the healing and empowering nature of bicycling with others. You can find Ashley riding her blue Breezer to the Headhouse farmer’s market, or her Fuji Sportif when she’s road racing as an alum of the Women Bike PHL Racing Development program.
