Wonderful, web-based winners. That’s not what the 3 w’s in the w3 Awards stand for, but it’s definitely how we’d describe our seven silver-winning entries from this year.

The w3 Awards celebrate digital excellence in websites, marketing, videos, social media, email and more.  These national honors put large agencies, specialty digital firms and smaller shops all on the same playing field to find the best of the best work in web. L&S took home seven silver honors, ranging from emails to documentary videos (woohoo!). Check out the winning work.
