PRLog — The relaunch of swimmingpool.com and its connected social media has earned an ADDY award for Creative Excellence from the American Advertising Federation Dallas chapter. Dallas-based Imaginuity Interactive built the content-rich site and social media for Pool Corporation (POOLCORP), the world’s largest wholesale distributor of swimming pool supplies, equipment and related leisure products.
“While our primary goal is to create fantastic work for our clients, winning awards as recognition of that work is rewarding,” said Ken Koo, President of Imaginuity Interactive. “The bronze ADDY recognizes not only the creative, technology and user experience excellence of the new swimmingpool.com, but also its integration with social media and the client-agency partnership with POOLCORP that made all of this work successful.”
“POOLCORP put its heart and soul into these projects and it paid off,” said Dominick Latino, POOLCORP Director of Internet Strategies. “The site and social media program illustrate what’s at the heart of it all; owning a pool is an exciting lifestyle that improves the quality time you spend with loved ones. We congratulate Imaginuity on the creative excellence of the site.”
The annual ADDY Awards honor the best in advertising in the Dallas-Fort Worth Metroplex. Founded in 1908, the Dallas chapter of the American Advertising Federation (AAF) is the oldest professional and civic organization in Dallas, and the fifth largest chapter of AAF in the nation. Its goal is to accelerate the success of the Dallas advertising community.
Among the new site’s user-friendly features:
• A searchable Knowledge Center with a wealth of information on Planning and Ideas, Entertaining and Lifestyle, Health and Exercise, Safety and Security, Care and Maintenance, Products and Equipment, and Landscaping and Decking

• An interactive Build-A-Pool application to design your own pool and request a quote from a qualified builder
