As one of San Francisco’s leading graphic design firms, Project6 Design has been honored once again from the prestigious Horizon Interactive Awards with two new Bronze Awards for website design excellence. The 2016 winners were just announced and highlight the year’s “best of the best” in interactive media production.
For fifteen years, the Horizon Interactive Awards have recognized, promoted and awarded the best websites / website design, interactive, videos, online advertising, print media and mobile applications. Each year the organization receives thousands of entries from all over the world, and the competition is judged by a volunteer panel of industry professionals with backgrounds in diverse multi-media, graphic design, advertising and marketing.
Our last blog post focused on the Traina Foods project, which was one of our Bronze Award winners. Project6’s other Bronze Award, in the category of Advocacy / Non-Profit, was for the extensive redesign of the Draper Richards Kaplan Foundation (DRK) website. Our success on the DRK project was important as they are a global venture philanthropy firm that supports early stage, high impact social enterprises. The organization believes that with early funding and rigorous support, exceptional leaders, tackling some of society’s most complex problems, can make the world a better place.
Before we began the project with DRK, their website only supported desk-tops, and was cluttered and not easy for visitors to navigate or find what they needed. Perhaps most importantly it did not persuasively or effectively communicate the foundation’s powerful mission of supporting passionate individuals who can change the world.
Our tasks included designing a longer page scrolling experience across the site in order to showcase individual organizations and breaking news. Project6’s team also simplified and streamlined the architecture. By creating a unified portfolio section, visitors are now able to browse both organizations and people. In addition we developed a new community section that allows DRK’s entrepreneurs and alumni to share news, resources, and upcoming events. As with most of our projects, DRK’s new site is built on a WordPress platform and is simple for staff to update and grow.
