Fahrenheit Studio Wins Gold at the Horizon Interactive Awards Competition

LOS ANGELES, CA—April 30, 2019—Fahrenheit Studio, a branding and design firm based in Los Angeles, was honored with a Horizon Interactive Gold Award for OpalWealthAdvisors.com. The website was recognized for design excellence in the Bank/Finance category.

Celebrating the “best of the best” in interactive media production, Horizon Interactive Awards is in its 17th season. The 2018 international competition received more than 800 submissions from around the world. Thirty-seven out of 50 US States sent entries, as well as 20 other countries including Austria, Belgium, Canada, Czech Republic, Greenland, Hong Kong, India, Ireland, Italy, Japan, Malaysia, Portugal, Russia, Singapore, Spain, Sri Lanka, Switzerland, Turkey, Taiwan and the UK.

“Opal Wealth Advisors needed to launch a brand for their new firm,” said Fahrenheit’s director, Dylan Tran. “We helped them develop a complete client experience around their distinctive purpose of empowering investors and businesses to create pathways to freedom, joy, and abundance. The website was key to the success of the rollout.”

OpalWealthAdvisors.com combines strong value statements with a bold visual interface. Highlights include embedded videos, blog, commentary, whitepapers, and coaching seminars to encourage visitor engagement. The site also features interactive tools for Opal to attract qualified leads. Anchored by the website, Opal’s smooth rollout garnered an enthusiastic response from clients and centers of influence.

“The financial industry is both highly regulated and increasingly competitive,” said Fahrenheit’s co-director Robert Weitz. “Creating an impression that’s memorable and compelling has become a key driver of success—but it’s difficult to achieve. We built Opal’s brand identity from the ground up and we’re delighted to receive a gold award for the brand’s website.”

The Horizon Interactive Awards holds the competition each year with the winners being announced the following April.
