Dallas, TX (PRWEB) September 11, 2014
The Old State announced today that the full-service digital marketing website design agency was awarded the Best Cultural Digital Signage from the Digital Screenmedia Association. Company officials say the award was provided in recognition of The Old State’s installation of touch screen kiosks in the highly regarded new Rory Meyers Children’s Adventure Garden at the Dallas Arboretum. The educational kiosk project is one of the largest installs of its kind in the country – boasting some 980 interactive touch-screen games on over 120 outdoor screens. The Old State also recently designed and developed the Dallas Arboretum’s website.
“This is a bold new step for The Old State,” said Travis McElroy, Owner and CEO of The Old State. “We reached for the brass ring on this project and it really paid off.”
“Nothing like this has been done before on this scale that I know of,” says Ron LeonGuerrero, Director of Technology at The Old State. “Our entire team came together and did a superb job in a very short amount of time. I’m very proud of all of them.”
The award, coming on the heels of a Gold Award from the Council for Advancement and Support of Education for Texas Christian University’s Admissions website, is the second commendation that the company has received this year.
With new clients such as Klyde Warren Park in Dallas, and Great Parks of Hamilton County in Ohio, The Old State is emerging as the go-to company for outdoor kiosk design, development, and installation.
