Resn Hits the Big 4-0


The Digital Den of Kiwi Creativity Marks New Milestone

Wellington, New Zealand, September 22, 2014 - Resn, New Zealand’s finest digital production company, have been looking rather distinguished lately. A little more grey around the temples. Jowls becoming increasingly Nixon-esque. Stray nose hairs insinuating themselves ever further into the moustache. The list of minor changes to Resn’s deteriorating physique goes on and on. Why, at Resn’s last prostate exam they even started humming this classic kiwi ditty. The fact is, Resn has hit a milestone: 40. That’s right. They now have 40 FWAs under their belt. A belt that is now groaning under the strain of their spreading, middle-age girth and cutting off the blood supply to their nether regions.

Why is this important? The FWA (Favorite Website Awards) are one of the most widely recognized website awards in the world. It is the most visited awards programs in the history of the internet and attracts more than 4 million unique visitors each month. It’s a big deal.

Resn is a small company headquartered in Wellington, New Zealand. The FWA playing field is no smaller than the entire world. Resn is going head-to-head with the biggest names in the industry and holding its own. That is a remarkable feat in itself. The fact that Resn is out-performing many of those companies is almost unbelievable. It’s like the All Whites going to the World Cup and making it out of pool play. It’s something kiwis only dream about. So, to celebrate that achievement, Resn has put together a round of digital applause you can activate from the comfort of wherever you happen to be sitting right now.
