Pro Bono Eames House Project Wins Best Advocacy Website at 2013 WebAwards

Nebo Agency Inspired by Charles & Ray Eames' Legacy to Create Fundraising Campaign for Preserving Landmark of Modern Design

ATLANTA, GA--(Marketwired - Sep 17, 2013) - Nebo, an Atlanta-based digital marketing agency, was honored as a best of industry winner at the 2013 WebAwards for their work creating the EamesHouse250.org website. The donation microsite was launched to aid the Eames Foundation and was recognized as the Best Advocacy Website.

This pro bono project was born out of a chance encounter between Nebo's President, Adam Harrell, and Eames Demetrios, the grandson of design legends Charles and Ray Eames. After Eames explained the challenges in maintaining his grandparents' iconic house, Nebo hatched a plan to help raise funds and awareness for the cause.

EamesHouse250.org invites design aficionados and Eames fans to be a part of their legacy by helping to preserve the couples' former home. This structure exemplifies the duo's artistic principles, which continue to shape the creative industry. The site serves as a hub for the sale of original, limited edition prints inspired by the Eames' signature style and also features an interactive timeline showcasing their achievements in architecture, furniture and filmmaking. Within two short months of the site's launch, more than 1,000 prints were sold, exceeding $250,000 in donations.

"We loved partnering with the Eames Foundation to help create this campaign," said Adam Harrell, President at Nebo. "The work of Ray and Charles Eames had a huge influence on my design philosophy. And, while the awards and recognition are nice -- we're most proud of the fact that through this effort we raised enough funds to start the process of preserving this landmark for the next generation."

The WebAwards is the leading award competition that annually recognizes the best websites in 96 industries.
