AN EVESHAM business is celebrating after reaching the final of the prestigious Midlands Business Awards for their inventive work in digital communications.

Developing cutting-edge Augmented Reality (AR) apps and innovative websites for clients across the region and beyond, Areca Design are becoming the leaders in providing interactive and engaging solutions.

The team at the Abbey Gate-based firm has been named as finalists in the digital communications category and the winners will be named at a gala dinner in Leicester next February.

Managing director, Mick Hurst, said: “After nine years of working hard to ensure Areca Design, and our clients, are at the cutting-edge of marketing innovation, it is fantastic to be selected as one of the four finalists in the digital communications section of Midlands Business Awards.

“I must thank everyone who nominated or voted for us. There are thousands of businesses from Herefordshire to Lincolnshire to choose from, and to reach the final is a great privilege from my team.”

Recent Areca Design commissions for local authorities have included bringing nature to life on a water meadow, telling the history of a museum via drones and animations, and providing an interactive AR tour-guide around the historic part of a town.

These are just part of a large array of imaginative digital communications projects, that also include work for Worcestershire County Cricket Club, Shakespeare’s England and Warwick’s Lord Leycester Hospital.

The Midlands Business Awards celebrate the finest business talent the region has to offer. From manufacturers, service providers to universities and young entrepreneurs, they recognise the best business minds in 13 different categories.

Now in its 13th year, the awards ceremony is a positive and dynamic major event in the Midlands business calendar.

The awards aim to create a legacy which embraces talent, entrepreneurs and business development and sets the platform for any business, from any industry, across the whole region to celebrate their success story.
