Cantina stood out among over 3,000 entrants in this year’s 17th Annual W3 Awards.  

Cantina won one Gold and one Silver W3 Award. Less than 10% of all entries are selected as Gold Winners; Silver Winners represent other outstanding entries. 

Cantina proudly took home Gold in the Health & Wellness for Mobile category for Dugri: Peer Support Network. Hebrew slang for “straight talk,” Dugri is a safe and anonymous peer support network that helps people increase wellness and resilience while decreasing stress and burnout.  Initially developed and deployed by the Israeli Navy SEAL special forces unit, the Dugri Protocol de-stigmatizes emotional, real talk in high-performance cultures, and is used today by soldiers, medical teams, first responders, and ordinary civilians all over the world. The unique Protocol is the result of 20 years of resiliency training among hundreds of thousands of professionals. 

Cantina helped successfully translate the protocol to a digital experience. Our work included not only technical & experience strategy, but also the design and build of their mobile app experience, including new features to encourage positive habit formation.

From experience strategy to technology and design, Cantina have been an outstanding partner, always pushing to ensure our vision comes fully to life.” - Yotam Dagan, CEO and Founder of Dugri

“As we sought to digitally scale the Dugri protocol, Cantina has been instrumental at every step of the way,” said Yotam Dagan, CEO and Founder of Dugri. “From experience strategy to technology and design, they have been an outstanding partner, always pushing to ensure our vision comes fully to life.”

Cantina earned Silver in the Workflow & Productivity for Mobile category for EstateSpace: Estate Management Simplified. EstateSpace is the world’s first digital asset management solution that provides a single point of record for a family’s physical assets. It simplifies estate management by providing all the tools necessary to improve how estate managers, family offices and businesses manage operations, people, and technology. 

Cantina has been an excellent partner in working with EstateSpace. Cantina has proven to live up to their amazing reputation.” - Jonathan Fishbeck, CEO of EstateSpace

According to Jonathan Fishbeck, CEO of EstateSpace, “Cantina has been an excellent partner in working with EstateSpace,” adding that “Cantina has proven to live up to their amazing reputation.”

Cantina designed & developed a new, compelling iOS and Android mobile experience to drive growth and customer engagement. It allows users to easily gather information about their assets and transforms this data into a simple, secure solution that spans the entire asset management lifecycle.

“Excellence is in our DNA, and the desire to deliver for our clients is a consistent driver of our success,” said Shaun Gummere, Cantina’s Chief Experience Officer. “We are naturally very proud to have our work recognized this year by the W3. As we like to say, innovation is not magic, but the result of disciplined craft and methodology. These awards are a testament to our experts’ ability to bring that craft to life in a way that creates meaningful value.” 

The W3 Awards honor creative excellence on the Web and recognize award-winning mobile apps, websites, marketing programs, social content, and online video. In honoring the best of the Web, the W3 Awards are the first major web competition accessible to all companies and agencies, large or small. Small firms are just as likely to win as Fortune 500 companies and international agencies. The aim is to honor the best of the Web regardless of company or agency size.

The 2022 W3 Awards continue Cantina’s winning streak. In 2018, Cantina took home Best Mobile App in the Health & Wellness category for its innovative work on the EYE-SYNC platform for SyncThink, plus a second Silver award for Best Mobile Features in the Experimental and Innovation category, also for SyncThink. In 2017, Cantina won four W3 awards. That year, its winning entries included the Empower Apple Watch App (Silver, Best Mobile App - Finance), Link AKC connected device (Silver, Best Mobile App - Health & Wellness; Silver, Best User Experience), and the Zipcar Mobile Experience (Silver, Best Visual Design).

The W3 Awards are sanctioned and judged by the Academy of Interactive and Visual Arts (AIVA), an invitation-only body consisting of top-tier professionals from a “Who’s Who” of acclaimed media, advertising, digital and marketing firms. Each season, AIVA considers submissions by Advertising agencies, PR Firms, Digital Agencies, In-house creative professionals, Web Designers, and Graphic Designers.
