Aware Celebrates 15 Years

Over the past fifteen years Aware Web has had the opportunity to work with a great roster of clients and vendors who have entrusted us with their brands and allowed Aware the opportunity to create award-winning web solutions for their companies and build lifelong business partnerships.

An equally important part of this picture of success has been the talented group of Awarians who have chosen to dedicate forty-plus hours a week to ensuring the continued production of outstanding work for these clients.

This past weekend we took a moment – more like an entire evening sprinkled with lots of fun moments – to celebrate our 15th anniversary with those who have made this ride an exciting one. Aware hosted a night filled with savory foods, refreshing cocktails and great times for our clients, partners, vendors, friends, family and Awarians at Le Meridien Chambers Minneapolis Hotel rooftop and lounge. We also gave everyone a chance to travel back in time and check out what those “talented group of Awarians” were doing as they celebrated 15 years.

Jeremy Ziegler, Chairman and CEO of Aware Web Solutions, and Trevor Olson, CEO & President of Aware Web Solutions, welcomed clients, partners, vendors and Awarians as they joined in for an evening of celebration in downtown Minneapolis.

I wonder what made Trevor give up that lifetime Hardee’s discount in favor of starting Aware with partner Jeremy. They must have had a hunch they would throw such a fun 15th anniversary party and have no need for those cinnamon raisin biscuits!

Luckily for Aware Brooke wasn’t snagged up to choreograph the “You’re So Vain Comeback Tour,” which we’re positive is only due to the fact YouTube wasn’t around back then. Regardless, we’re glad she decided to design stuff for us instead!

Once Doug discovered the superpowers behind being a Solutions Architect at Aware, he quickly sent NASA a “thanks but no thanks” memo. This may or may not have to do with the fact that it’s easier for him to continue his craft brewing hobby on land rather than on a space shuttle.

At 15 she managed her way around large shopping malls and the dating scene at nearby parks, which may likely gave her the edge she needed in order to successfully navigate Aware around the world of Web marketing.

We’re glad the thought of becoming a history professor turned out to be just a phase for Jonathan because we really dig his UX skills!

At Aware we’ve found that floppy hair paired with kean negotiating skills at an early age is a good sign of a future Creative Director – especially when it comes to Dan.

True celebrations call for tasty food, great cocktails, laughs and good times had by all!

Aware would like to thank everyone who made this evening the spectacular night it was and a special thanks to everyone who stopped by to help us celebrate 15 years of developing Web solutions that empower clients to own their Web. We look forward to many more future celebrations with you all!
