The Communicator Awards recently announced their 29th season winners and two Clarity projects received an Award of Distinction.   This program recognizes big ideas in marketing and communications and is overseen by the Academy of Interactive and Visual Arts, a 600+ member organization of leading professionals from various disciplines of the visual arts.

Winning Projects

Cook County Public Defender’s Office, General – Law & Legal Services Category

Clarity was tasked with redesigning and re-platforming the PDO website, to which the team implemented a drastically different look for the homepage, basic pages, and other site features. In addition, Clarity migrated all web pages, images, document, and other digital media to the new Drupal 9 CMS. This includes a new modern look, easier content administration, enhanced search, improved web accessibility, and a modular page-building feature using Site Studio. Site studio was used to build multiple interactive components throughout the site. Clarity trained the PDO team on how to use the new site and they are now building their own pages with pre-selected layouts, banners, and widgets.

Office of the City Clerk, City of Chicago, General – Government Category

In 2015, the Office of the City Clerk (OCC) engaged Clarity to host, support, and adaptively maintain their website to meet current and evolving business needs unique to the entity. Clarity’s continuing support ensures maintained storage space for large documents and images that support the site, tracking and reporting, data changes, and ad hoc training as requested as well as proactive security updates. The OCC website continues to be hosted on Amazon Web Services (AWS).

Clarity Partners has recently re-platformed the site on Drupal 9. This process included streamlining the site’s content structure, improving the content maintenance capabilities, and alleviating pain points identified by the OCC team regarding content administration. Upon launching the new site, Clarity provided training as well as a written guide to the OCC staff for all updated administrative capabilities within Drupal 9.
