We’re absolutely elated to announce a milestone achievement for Smoking Rocket – we’ve clinched the coveted 1st place Gold Award at the Hertfordshire Digital Awards, and the journey there was nothing short of a cinematic plot!

Our winning entry? The website we designed for Fangs FX, which stood out in the fiercely competitive Sports & Entertainment Category. Now, here’s where the plot thickens: we were up against some industry Goliaths, including the likes of Adidas. Yes, you read that right – Adidas! When we saw the lineup, our expectations were modest at best; after all, competing with such globally recognised brands seemed like a David versus Goliath scenario.

The surprise of the win was so great that our director, who typically has a way with words, was caught completely off-guard. Picture this: amidst a lineup of industry heavyweights, when Smoking Rocket was announced as the winner, there was a moment of stunned silence from our end. Our director, who hadn’t prepared a speech, believing it to be an ‘Adidas night’, had to improvise on the spot. Let’s just say, if there were an award for the most impromptu and heartfelt acceptance speech, we might have won that too!


Jokes aside, this award isn’t just about the glitz and glamour of a trophy. It’s a testament to our team’s unwavering dedication, creative brilliance, and the innovative approach we bring to every project. Winning the best website in the Sports & Entertainment Category, especially against such renowned brands, underscores our commitment to excellence and the trust our clients place in us.

This accolade also marks a significant moment in our journey, highlighting how far we’ve come and the potential heights we can scale. It reaffirms our belief that passion, innovation, and a client-focused approach are the cornerstones of creating award-winning work, even in the face of seemingly insurmountable odds.

So, a huge thank you to the Hertfordshire Digital Awards for this honor, and to our amazing team and clients like Fangs FX for making this possible. Here’s to more unexpected wins, speechless moments, and outshining the giants! 🏆🚀💥
