In it’s 17th season, the W3 Awards received over 3,000 entries from advertising agencies, PR firms, digital agencies, in-house creative professionals, web designers, and graphic designers.  Clarity Partners was recognized again this year, this time for three of our recent web projects.

Winning Projects

Colony Display – Website Redesign

Colony is a custom wood/metal fixture manufacturer located in Elgin, IL.  Founded in 1983, the company quickly gained a reputation for being customer-focused for producing high-quality mid-tiered fixtures for the retail industry.  This project was completed as an almost entirely virtual effort during 2020.

Metra Rail – Website Redesign

The new Metra site is considered the first step in a transformation in how Metra will communicate with users. The design is clean and simple, with an effort to improve the experience for mobile users (who represent two-thirds of visitors) and, more importantly, customers with visual disabilities. The site is in Level AAA compliance with the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG).

Project Rainbow, Cook County Government – Website Design & Development

Clarity was chosen to build Project Rainbow, a website which hosts the new Cook County initiative that seeks to address learning loss magnified by COVID-19 by curating and creating free early childhood and family oriented educational programming.  Through this initiative, Cook County and its Project Rainbow partners will produce new or repurpose existing informative and educational content for children and families.
