October, 2007 – Pointe Claire, Quebec. Chris Murray, a certified Internet Consultant with WSI (We Simplify the Internet) has been honored at the second annual WSI Web Awards at WSI’s Excellence and Innovation Conference in Orlando, Florida. Chris was responsible for developing the winning website in the category of Creative Excellence for the 2007 Web Awards, www.beaverbooks.ca.
The Creative Excellence award was presented to Chris Murray and the WSI e-Marketplace Production Center, Voloper Creations Inc. The site, built for Beaver Books, demonstrates excellence in branding, layout, and aesthetics. It is both visually impacting and appealing and showcases Beaver Books’ line of children’s resources. The youth and vitality of Beaver Books’ products is effectively demonstrated with the use of pop-up images and eye-catching colors.
Chris Murray stated, “We are very pleased to have been awarded the Creative Excellence award. It’s a great feeling to know that others appreciate the work we do. Our goal is to create a website concept that exceeds the client’s expectation while providing an intuitive user experience for the target market.”

The new www.beaverbooks.ca site reflects Beaver Books’ kid-friendly image and conveys their educational resources, everything from posters and puzzles to workbooks and reusable wipe-clean boards, in a fun and creative way.
George Papp Jr., the owner of Beaver Books, said, "I am very satisfied with the new website that the team at WSI has created for Beaver Books. Chris was really easy to work with and made useful suggestions every step of the way from our first meeting until the end of the project. The design team made full use of my inventory of artwork and illustrations and created a final product that enhances our brand on the Internet. They listened to all my questions and concerns and delivered what they promised on time... and without any surprises. I would not hesitate to recommend the team at WSI. I will certainly continue to draw on their expertise as our business grows."
