The 2022 WebAwards were released today and two Clarity projects were honored as a “Standard of Excellence” in the Transportation and Education categories.

Winners are presented annually by the Web Marketing Association and are determined by independent expert judges from around the world.  Website entries are judged on the following seven criteria on a scale of 0-10 points: design, innovation, content, technology, interactivity, copywriting, and ease of use.

The Winning Websites

Metra Rail: Website Redesign & Accessibility Compliance, has won Transportation Standard of Excellence

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: Education Standard of Excellence

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 and through the development of Cook County’s first-ever mobile app.  Through this initiative, Cook County and its Project Rainbow partners will produce new or repurpose existing informative and educational content for children and families.

All recipients of the WebAwards can be viewed on the winners page of their website.
