San Francisco Bay Area website design and development company Project6 is proud to announce that it has been awarded the 2018 WebAward for Outstanding Achievement in Web Development. The Project6 team received the distinguished Education Standard of Excellence award in recognition of their exceptional work for Clackamas Community College's recent web redesign. The annual WebAwards competition, which drew entrants from 40 countries across all categories this year, announced its winners on Tuesday, September 11, 2018.
Project6 is well-versed in the particularities of providing website design services to the Higher Education market, having partnered with major universities and colleges including UC Berkeley, UCSF and Stanford University. As an approved vendor for these schools, Project6 is trusted throughout Higher Ed for award-winning, accessible web design. "It's a particular honor to serve the educational community in our work, and being recognized with the Education Standard of Excellence award is a testament to our drive to be the best design firm we can be," Project6 Founder and President Esten Sesto says of the news.
Throughout the past decade, Project6 has taken a special interest in designing for Higher Ed, helping colleges communicate their message both in print and web design. In developing the redesign for Clackamas Community College, Project6 was tasked with creating a vibrant, intuitive new site that would serve their diverse base. The award-winning result improves usability across the board for prospective students, staff, and community members, and was built using WCAG 2.0 level AA accessible design — a higher standard of web design and development utilized throughout government and educational agencies to ensure inclusivity for users with disabilities.
Entrants to the WebAwards Competition for Web Site Development are judged on several metrics, including design, copywriting, innovation, content, interactivity, navigation, and use of technology.
