Luther College website earns ‘Award of Excellence’

Luther College’s website ( received the “Award of Excellence” in the category Website Redesign at the 29th annual Communicator Awards.

The Communicator Awards is an annual competition recognizing the best in advertising, corporate communications, public relations and design. With approximately 3,000 entries received from across the United States of America and worldwide, the Communicator Awards is the most extensive and competitive awards program honoring creative excellence for communications professionals. The Communicator Awards is sanctioned and reviewed by the Academy of Interactive & Visual Arts, an invitation-only group consisting of top-tier professionals from acclaimed media, communications, advertising, creative and marketing firms.

For the website redesign project, Luther College partnered with the web design firm mStoner, now a part of Carnegie, a higher education marketing and enrollment strategy firm. Carnegie entered the website into the Communicator Awards competition. “We’re delighted Luther’s new site is recognized with this well-deserved top honor,” said Lindsey Waldrop, Carnegie vice president for web strategy and UX. “We appreciated and enjoyed working with Luther College on the site redesign, and we look forward to continuing our great partnership.”

“The launch of the redesigned website was more than a year in the making and included many components,” said Laura Barlament, Luther’s executive director of strategic marketing and communications. “Not only was the look of the website overhauled, but it was also built on a new content management system, and we optimized the strategy behind how the site is structured and the content is presented.”

The new site was launched in August 2022, with a new homepage and sections for academics, the music programstudent life and alumni and friends. The Marketing and Communications staff has continued to build out the site with many more web assets of the college, such as the Luther Magazine website.

“I appreciate the expert guidance and design work of Carnegie, and the hard work and dedication that the entire Marketing and Communications staff at Luther continue to pour into this key marketing asset for Luther College,” Barlament said.
