[HOUSTON] September 15, 2014 Signet Interactive, a leading full-service marketing and advertising agency based in Houston, won the Gold Stevie Award in the Health Products & Services category in the 12th Annual American Business Awards. The awards were presented to honorees from all over the globe during a gala banquet in San Francisco on September 12, 2014.

The award recognizes Signet Interactive's redesign of the website and customer experience improvements for Houston-based yoga company, Joy Yoga Center (www.joyyogacenter.com). Improved site navigation, larger imagery, integrated blog, enrollment functionality, and clearer calls to action were major components of the award-winning design. Final results of the campaign included a 51 percent increase in unique site visits, a 31 decrease in site bounce rates and a 5,257 percent increase in online sign-ups for yoga studio memberships. The visual and functional quality of the website, paired with the results, solidified Signet Interactive as a finalist in the award nomination.

All organizations operating in the U.S. are eligible to submit nominations public and private, for-profit and non-profit. Over 3,300 nominations were submitted this year for consideration in a wide range of categories.
