Quantum Sails, the second largest sail manufacturer in the world, partnered with HDC to launch a new digital platform, as well as develop a new brand position, “To the next challenge,” to unite the company and its customers. The new website features a robust content and e-commerce experience, a community section with “Ask the Expert” interactivity and compelling creative content that tells the Quantum Sails brand story throughout the site.

HDC also received four Silver W³ Awards for the following work in the following categories: 1) the G.H. Cretors “Celebrate Your Obsession” in the “Social Media, Food and Beverage” category, 2) the Children’s Hospital of Wisconsin "Little Sparks of Light” campaign in the “Online Video, Health Care Services” category, 3) the Precious Lives website in the “Charitable Organizations / Non-Profit” website category and 4) the SOG Knives & Tools "Mission-Grade” campaign in the “Branded Content, Business to Consumer” category.
