Local Government Federal Credit Union (LGFCU) proudly announces its Creative Services staff has received a Credit Union Executives Society (CUES) Golden Mirror Award for Web design.
The award recognizes the website of LGFCU’s commercial lending arm, LGFCU Financial Partners (www.lgfcupartners.org). The site was relaunched in 2010 as a do-it-yourself resource with everything North Carolina fire and rescue/EMS departments need to quickly and easily finance a purchase.
“In essence, the goal was to create a virtual loan officer,” said Web Marketing Designer Shannon Moelhave, who designed the site. “Financial Partners is a business separate from the credit union, so another goal was to create a look completely different from that of LGFCU, as well as to make it as eye-catching as possible.”
According to CUES judges, a group of credit union marketers and industry experts, the design and functionality of the site was what merited the award.
“The home page is so simple, and the following pages have an easy flow and look great withgood photos and an informational layout,” wrote one of the judges. “It really conveys the message of reaching out to all local agencies in the credit union's field of membership.”
