Still the best party in town - The Paris Review

Posted by jamie | May 15, 2017

More than 8 years after we re-designed and developed The Paris Review‘s previous award-winning website and CMS, we’re equally excited at the honors the new website design has garnered since November 2016.

Webby Award Nominees


First up was a nomination for Best Cultural Website from the Webby Awards. Though the site did not prevail in that category, we’re thrilled to be in such great company.


The Communicator Awards
And now, we’re really excited to announce not one but two Communicator Awards for Excellence – in the General Blog/Cultural and Mobile Apps/Visual Design & Function categories.

The new site was a collaboration designed by the brilliant designers at Strick & Williams (Charlotte and Claire) and re-developed by our team and Ben Levine at Point Five.

Way back in the aughts we heard this from the critics:

“Swoon!” — Dan Duray, The New York Observer

The Paris Review’s Web site feels, for now, like the best party in town.” — Dwight Garner, The New York Times

We’d venture to say it’s STILL the best party in town.  Hats off to our client and friends at The Paris Review!

The Webby Awards

We are delighted that our recent collaboration with Point Five Design on Democracy Journal’s new website, launched in December 2015, has already received great recognition.

First the new site was named a Webby Honoree in the Political Blog / Websites category. That was followed by Horizon Interactive’s Award for Best Use of Typography. And now the Communicator Awards have given the site the Award of Excellence in the Websites/Politics category!

Congratulations to Democracy Journal, Point Five and our team here at Tierra!


Hot on AppleTV - CW Seed

Posted by jamie | April 26, 2016

It’s hard not to get excited when Apple features your app…anywhere, anytime…in the App Store. It’s even better when the app is for one of Apple’s hottest new products – AppleTV – with some of the hottest new content from The CW.

Our team here at Tierra is super fired up that our recent work on the CW Seed Apple TV app, launched in March 2016, has consistently been a top 40 Entertainment app and was recently spotlighted by Apple in the Top Free Apps, What to Watch, and Favorite Video App sections of the Apple TV app store.

Since we can’t link right to them from here, below are a few screenshots. Better yet, fire up your Apple TV and download the CW Seed app!

Favorite Video Apps

CW Seed featured in the Find your Favorite Video Apps section of the App Store.


What to Watch

Not in bad company in the What to Watch section.


Top Free Apps

Since launch, the CW Seed app has consistently been ranked among the Top Free apps in the Entertainment category and overall.


Thanks for the nods, Webbys!
