GRANITE named Large Agency of the Year and Best in E-Commerce at the Spiders Awards

Dublin, Cork, 4th March 2024

Granite, Ireland’s leading full-service digital agency, today announces that it has won two prestigious awards at the 2024 Spider Awards Gala Ceremony held in the Round Room of the Mansion House in Dublin.

The Spider Awards, now in their 27th year, are renowned for spotlighting the highest achievements within the digital marketing industry and base their criteria on innovation, impact, and excellence.

Not only was Granite named ‘Large Agency of the Year’ for the second consecutive year, the agency also took home a Spider Award for ‘Best eCommerce Website of the Year’ for their partnership with Bord Bia and New Era Spirits.

Granite Digital was recognised for its outstanding ability to deliver comprehensive digital solutions that achieve client growth. The Best in E-Commerce award was presented in acknowledgement of Granite’s innovative solutions that significantly enhanced the online retail experience, driving sales and customer engagement for Element Whiskey.

Fionn Cox, from Element Whiskey, commented on the partnership’s success, “Our new website has allowed us to clearly portray our brand identity and vision and stand out in a crowded space. As a startup brand, we rely on our digital assets, which are our website and social media pages, to provide consumers and potential partners a first look into our brand. We can rest assured knowing that our website will make a great first impression. We are available in 7 global markets in one year, which is an amazing start, and our friends in Nigeria can’t get enough of it. We are yet to engage in large-scale activations, so it is in fact the brand identity/look and feel that is a key factor in its success, of which the website plays a big part.”

Robert Carpenter, COO and Co-founder of Granite Digital, said: “Our biggest awards are the partnerships we cultivate and the successes we achieve for our clients partnership. The significant improvement in Element Whiskey’s conversion rate, leading to our Best in E-Commerce award, exemplifies the impactful and quantifiable results of our dedication to client growth in every project. Being honoured as Large Agency of the Year for a second year is a testament to our unwavering commitment and hard work towards our clients’ growth.”
