MJD Announces Launch of Newly Designed Screen Actors Guild Awards® Website

Southern California’s award-winning digital innovation agency, MJD, announces its renovation of the new Screen Actors Guild Awards® website, www.SAGAwards.com. In tribute to the original silver screen, MJD has featured a black and white background video with a modern video background playing on the homepage.

The Screen Actors Guild Awards made its debut in 1995 as one of the only televised award shows to exclusively honor performers. The show is sponsored by SAG-AFTRA, the union representing actors, writers and other media artists in the 21st century and beyond. The SAG Awards presents thirteen awards for acting in film and television in a two-hour show, which airs live on TNT and TBS. The 22nd annual awards show will air on Saturday, January 30, 2016.

The SAG Awards website offers news and information about the upcoming award show, along with additional information about the award categories, nominees and past winners. The newly launched version of the site, developed by MJD, includes features such as:

●      Large format imagery, making the site more visually engaging

●      Interactive awards section to view nominees, past winners and this years winners

●      Responsive design and development for an advanced mobile viewing experience of content

●      Live social media content sharing section, aggregating posts with #SAGAwards

●      Advanced Drupal CMS admin controls for easy ongoing management

“We really enjoyed working with the SAG team, helping them create a classic, yet modern digital brand they can use for years to come. The ‘silver screen’ design concept was a hit from the start, and combined with the modern video background, social media integration and responsive mobile view has created a cutting edge website experience for fans to really enjoy” says Michael Maginnis, President of MJD.

The SAG Awards adds to MJD’s growing list of entertainment clientele. MJD has developed cutting edge projects for The Recording Academy, Legendary Films, Riot Games and NBC Universal. Outside of the entertainment industry, MJD works with leaders in the retail, digital health, hi-tech and consumer electronic fields.
