LiveArea Wins Six AVA Digital Awards

Top creative industry recognition for Saks Fifth Avenue and Vari work


For the second consecutive year, LiveArea has won top honors in the annual AVA Digital Awards competition. The global competition recognizes creative professionals for excellence leading the planning, concept, direction, design, and production of digital communications.

LiveArea won a total of six awards, including four for client work. We received awards for our web production work for luxury brand Saks Fifth Avenue and workspace innovation company Vari in addition to honors for LiveArea marketing materials.

Vari stands tall

A platinum award, the highest honor, was given to LiveArea for Vari’s business-to-consumer website, which we built and launched last year as part of Vari’s brand transformation. A LiveArea video case study on Vari also was named a platinum winner.

Saks luxe

We received multiple gold awards for our work with Saks Fifth Avenue, which launched a new digital storefront built by LiveArea last year on Salesforce Commerce Cloud. Gold awards were won in two categories, including business-to-consumer website and eCommerce storefront. Similarly, Luxury Daily named Saks Fifth Avenue “Luxury Retailer of the Year” in January for its “adaptability and successful digital advancements amidst the COVID-19 pandemic.”

Platinum video and ebook

In addition to recognition for client work, we received top honors for our LiveArea overview video along with our “Recalibrating Luxury in the Digital Age” ebook.
