Lazarev won Webby!

The statue of Webby Awards

Lazarev was declared a winner of the 26th Annual Webby Awards — the leading international award honoring excellence on the Internet.

What is Webby?

Deemed the “Internet’s highest honor," The Webby Awards promote the most illustrious and innovative digital experiences. Think of an Oscar, a Grammy, or a Pulitzer, but in the digital world.

This was a record-breaking season, with over 14,000 entities from more than 70 countries. Only the top 4% of all entered work received the Webby Awards. A list of this year’s winners includes the major industry players like Apple, Google, Netflix, NASA, Spotify, WeTransfer, and National Geographic.

The most successful design corporations with 2600+ employees and offices worldwide competed in our “Professional Services & Self-Promotion” category.

Lazarev has succeeded in carving out a place among the industry giants, thanks to the design expertise of our talented team

It’s been the first time Lazarev. ever participated in The Webby Awards and right away was nominated and awarded. The Best projects in our category were selected by juries based on Content, Structure & Navigation, Visual Design, Overall Experience, Functionality, and Interactivity.

This year the Webby Awards ceremony took place on the 16th of May in New York. The event was hosted by Roy Wood Jr and featured 5-Word Speeches delivered by Webby Winners around the world. Kirill Lazarev was invited to the Red Carpet and used the opportunity to give a speech on stage.

...I am only allowed to say 5 words. Only 5 words to express all the thoughts and emotions every Ukrainian has… I take a breath, “Be brave, fight for Ukraine

What are success triggers?

We have been hammering away at designing our website for 9 months. A team of 8 people was working literally day and night to create this cool and, at the same time, high-performing site.

Honestly, it’s the 10th version of our website. The agency has been continuously evolving, and, thus, we had to iterate a lot, come up with unprecedented solutions, and design new pages to convey the essence of what we do here.

For example, we recently designed the Process page to interactively show the steps we follow while designing an MVP or redesigning. Then, we crafted the About us page to show who we are in real life. The page hosts Batumba - a real statue in our office in Kyiv, the embodiment of the agency’s team spirit.

Overall, we united smooth animations, interesting 3Ds, and eye-catching visuals on a crystal-clear and simple interface structure, making our website accessible and super convenient. The website is not overloaded with nauseous effects, yet it’s trendy, professional, and high-performing.

This is the third time our own website has received such international attention: it got a Platinum award at the Hermes Creative Awards, a nomination at The Drum Design Awards, and now the Webby!

We cannot thank our True Believers enough for voting for us, as well as all the team behind this win!

Lazarev family says thank you to:

  • The Ukrainian community for supporting us and casting every vote. Especially during these challenging times for Ukraine.
  • All the team for devoted work, sleepless nights, and true passion for moving forward. 
  • Our clients for trusting us their most important initiatives and giving us opportunities to grow.

This is only the beginning. We have a long road ahead of us, but let this win be a reminder that we’re creating something special.
