The MUSE Creative and Design Awards have released their lists of winners for their first competitive season of 2023 and Project6 Design brought home three silver awards. The awards feature branding and website design excellence in education, healthcare, and design/build construction industries.

The MUSE Awards is composed of a series of competitions which are organized to honor excellence from various fields. IAA ensures that these competitions are accessible and fair, in order to guarantee recognition only goes to those who truly deserve the accolade.
Website Design for Colleges and Universities
The first award was for the redesign of Berkeley's College of Environmental Design. The project included: creating a unified brand identity for the college, its departments, and select programs and institutes, creating easy-to-use print collateral templates with the new identity, and Re-envision and rebuild the main CED website, consolidating content from over 15 auxiliary websites.

Award-winning UI/UX Design for the Design/Build Construction Industry
The final silver award went to Granite Construction. Granite is one of the largest diversified construction and construction materials companies in the United States as well as a full-suite provider in the transportation, water infrastructure and mineral exploration markets. The website reflects their brand image, and includes interactive infographics showcasing their inclusive diversity data. "Adding a bit of interactivity really engages the user and is a great way to showcase Granite's inclusivity figures." – Esten Sesto, Project6 Design President and UI/UX Director.
"The industries have gone through significant changes through the years, yet to have these entrants showcase their ability to adapt and overcome, it is certainly surprising and encouraging to our team in IAA," Thomas Brandt, spokesperson of IAA elaborated. He continued, "it is humbling to see the level of craft displayed in the submitted works. Our most sincere commendations go out to those behind said works and for setting such a high standard for excellence for all to follow."
Having a jury composed of industry professionals, IAA was successful in upholding impartiality and enforcing industry-relevant assessment criteria. The jury's role was solely to identify companies or individuals whose works showcased excellence and pushed their respective industries forward, which they had successfully accomplished.
Other than employing industry-relevant standards in judging entries, impartiality was also enforced with the blind judging method. This meant that entries were evaluated by multiple judges without being compared with other submissions, meaning that each winning work had decisively won with their own merits.
"While the winners continue to reshape and redefine the industries with their continued display of excellence, we should not shy away from the challenge and instead share the vision in solidarity with them," Thomas said. "IAA remains proud to be able to honor talented individuals while spotlighting their excellence. As they continue to mark the path forward, we should also unleash our boundless possibilities and join in this marvelous endeavor."
