Often times your website is a potential customer’s first impression of your company. That being said, if you’re a business in the 21st century, you absolutely need a website. Since you need a website, you might as well have a handcrafted, award-winning website. That’s why our team at JB Systems puts so much time and effort into researching your company and industry design trends. We don’t just build websites 一 we create a beautiful, handcrafted solution that expresses your brand.
This research and dedication to creating exceptional web designs hasn’t gone unnoticed. We’re excited to share that JB Systems has been awarded six, Graphic Design USA (GDUSA) awards for 2016. We won awards for the following websites in the following categories:
- Children’s Museum of Eau Claire (web design)
- Gordy’s Market (web design)
- Joe Bee Enterprise (mobile design)
- Peregrine Communications, LLC (web design)
- Tangled Up in Hue (web design)
- Willms Law (web design)
A website design is only as great and as strong as the team that’s designing it. Fortunately, our design team is incredibly talented, and these awards speak to that. “It’s awesome to be recognized,” says Jenna, one of our designers. “We are always striving to improve and better ourselves as designers. These awards show us that it pays off to really think outside of the box and challenge ourselves.”
Meghan, the Art Director at JB Systems, feels the same way. “These awards show that we are able to stay current in the design world,” says Meghan. “It shows we’re able to constantly improve our designs and stay innovative year after year.”
This is JB Systems fifth consecutive year winning multiple GDUSA awards. What does our graphic design team attribute to this success and innovation? “Research,” says Meghan. “Lots and lots of research. When creating a new design, we spend hours pouring over websites that are inside and outside of a client’s particular industry.”
These awards also fuel our design team’s determination and competitiveness to consistently create remarkable websites. “Every new design we create sets the bar for the next. We take it as a personal challenge to make each new design better than the last,” says Meghan.
While the six websites are equally stunning and sleek, it’s difficult not to feel partial to one over another. When asked which award-winning website was their favorite to work on, Meghan and Jenna were eager to share.
“The project that really stood out to me was the Children’s Museum of Eau Claire,” says Meghan. “It’s not often we get to work on a colorful/playful website like this one. We really tried to push the limits on this design.” The trick, Meghan says, was to create a design that engaged parents and made them want to experience the museum.
In order to do this, the design team approached the project from an Exploration perspective. “Visitors get to ‘explore’ the website like their children will get to explore the museum itself. Throughout the website you get a very good idea of what kind of museum they are and how much fun you can have!” says Meghan.
For Jenna, Peregrine Communications was the most fun and challenging to work on. “We got to start completely from scratch,” says Jenna. “We designed the logo, and then we took that and created a website. It isn’t too often that we get to have our hand in a new company’s brand and look from the very beginning. It was exciting to be part of that process!”
The logo was also a favorite part of this project. “The idea was really fun and interesting to research,” says Jenna. “We had a lot of creative freedom, which allowed us to come out with a great looking design.”
At #TeamJB, we truly are a team, meaning we wouldn’t be able to develop handcrafted, award-winning websites without each employee’s contribution. We can’t wait to see what our design team comes up with next, and we’re already thinking toward next year’s GDUSA award submissions.
