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. They communicated openly and were very organized throughout the project.

I so appreciated their professionalism, flexibility, warmth, and team-spirit—it made the process go so smoothly. It was a joy and privilege to work with them.”

FAQ for Universities and Colleges

How does Project6 Ensure Our Website Will Be Accessible?

Good question! This starts with a thorough technical review. We use Siteimprove, Wave, and ANDI tools to test the site for various infractions with a target of WCAG 2.x level AA.

Do You Work on Smaller Projects, or Just Large Scale Efforts?

Our team is best suited for projects that are 5 to 6+ months (or more) in duration. Typically, this means the projects of larger size do fit the team best. However, once we establish our working relationship and create the brand direction, smaller projects a definitely possible to add over time.

What Does the Team Look Like for Our Project?

The team size and make up varies based on the client, schedule, and needs. For every project, the minimum team would be the Director of Strategy / Project Manager, Creative Director, and Designer. If the website is being rebuilt, we'd include the Senior Web Architect, Developer, and UI/UX Designer.
