(MENAFN- PR Newswire) Project6 Wins Gold at the 22nd Annual Horizon Interactive Awards Competition

BERKELEY, Calif., April 9, 2024 /PRNewswire/ -- The Horizon Interactive Awards, a leading international interactive media awards competition, has announced the 2023-2024 award winners to highlight this year's " best of the best " in interactive media production. The 2023 winning entries showcase the industry's best interactive media solutions from some of the top agencies , designers, producers, and developers worldwide.

San Francisco Bay Area-based design agency Project6 was recognized for its excellence in the education industry with multiple awards. With over two decades of experience, Project6 is an established leader in accessibility practices and strategic design. These awards mark its first wins of the 2024 competitive season.

"It's always nice to be recognized for the work we do-especially in education," says Esten Sesto, Project6 co-founder and President. "We really enjoy collaborating with our clients in Education. Over months and even years, these .edu websites often grow to be unwieldy and unmanageable. The final visual results can be stunning, but the real achievement is solving the complexity of the content strategy and helping our clients better organize and manage their websites."

Project6 received the gold award for its comprehensive website redesign for an environmental design college
within a neighboring university in Berkeley, CA. The project included creating and implementing a unified brand identity for the college, its departments, and select programs and institutes. By consolidating content from over 15 auxiliary websites, Project6
re-envisioned and rebuilt the college's website and enhanced the platform with collateral templates, ultimately ensuring that both students and staff could not only reach their potential but go above and beyond.

This gold-winning project showcased
Project6's well-documented expertise in SEO practices
and optimization. Utilizing an SEO specialist, the Project6 team developed a content strategy and SEO strategy that improved the quality and organization of the content that supported the client's KPI (key performance indicators) goals and measures of success.

Additionally, Project6
also earned the Silver award for its website redesign for Flathead Valley Community College
(FVCC). The institution had not updated its website since 2015 and needed an easy-to-navigate solution that could address a diverse audience, from students to stakeholders to business owners and local community members.

Recognizing the need for the website to reflect so many different voices, Project6 rebuilt the site from the ground up, starting with dozens of interviews and reviewing hundreds of pages to determine what needed to be updated-or retired.

The new website was mobile-friendly, easy to navigate, and met WCAG 2.1 level AA standards. Students no longer had to rely on external catalogs to register for classes, the layout was flexible and intuitive, and the design and photography felt fresh and up-to-date. This modern solution changed the way that the FVCC community engaged with the college, allowing everyone to have access to the information they needed from anywhere.

"Project6 was an outstanding team to work with to redesign our college website. Their professionalism, expertise, and ability to work with all areas of campus to create a site that really represents our organization was incredible. The team is dedicated, friendly, and always helped us find solutions to create a functional, interactive, modern website."-Allison Linville, Executive Director, Communications And Marketing, Flathead Valley Community College
