“These awards are important as they recognise how WONDR as a team transcends boundaries by using the latest in tech to enable rapid digital transformation.”

We’re proud to announce that our collaboration with 11Onze has won a global digital award for excellence.

11Onze’s financial application, which celebrated its first anniversary this month, overcame all obstacles to win a new international award. More than 1,000 applications were received from 20 countries.

This is the second year in a row that 11Onze has collected an award at this programme having previously collected a Centauri Award for La Plaça / The Square and numerous other accolades from international design associations.

"We strongly believe in the democratisation of banking and financial services. That’s why we're delighted to have our technological milestones recognised as pioneering."

A global benchmark

The story behind the launch of El Canut was captured perfectly in a film, that premiered in Barcelona, entitled ‘In a few days. Attempts at sabotage, infiltrators and constant pressure aimed at derailing the birth of 11Onze as a Catalan community fintech.

11Onze-El-Canut-Banking-App

The project, however, dodged the problems, moved forward and now users have in their hands an application that has been recognised across the globe as an award-winning benchmark by the Vega Digital Awards (global), the Webbys (USA), UX Design Awards (Germany), The ADG Laus (Spain) and IDI Awards (Ireland).

About the Vega Digital Awards

The Vega Digital Awards are organised by the International Awards Associate (IAA) and they aim to celebrate digital excellence worldwide, recognising the very best in Websites, Video, Mobile, Social, Animation, Marketing, and Podcasts.

This year the judging panel was comprised of 22 experts from 10 countries. The theme for the 2022 Vega Awards is ‘Transcending Boundaries’ – to go beyond the common and to set ourselves apart.

11Onze is a Barcelona-based fintech that has done nothing but transcend boundaries since its launch, their mission is to empower the financial health and decisions of the Catalan community in Spain and abroad by creating an expansive resource, ‘El Canut‘.

The vision for the app was to offer customers the ability to manage all their bank accounts in one place, no matter what country they reside in. In addition, customers would be able to manage all their payments, transfers, savings and loans from one source – a one-stop-shop banking app.

‘El Canut’ is an old Catalan phrase that means purse. Unlike the old phrase, the product and service of 11Onze and El Canut was radically new for the Spanish and European markets. This was the key design challenge for our team; to design a disruptive banking app to coincide with the launch of a new way of delivering community banking and ‘transcending boundaries’.

We’re delighted to announce that ESB Energy has won an international award for ‘Best Energy Website’.

The work was awarded by the Vega Digital Awards, who are an international body that exists to recognise and honor the outstanding performance, talent and effort of the best digital professionals and web agencies around the world.

Judged independently by experienced, senior-level digital professionals from around the world, the categories include websites, video, mobile, social, animation, marketing and podcasts.

 

This award recognises the level of ambition shown by the whole team to deliver a fantastic brand & customer experience.
