Project6 Design Awarded at the 2020 W3 Awards for Latest Web Design in the Nonprofit Space

The Academy of Interactive and Visual Arts has announced its honorees for the 15th Annual w3 Awards, representing an international cross-section of the most innovative digital content creators spanning Websites, Marketing, Video, Mobile, Social, and Podcasts.

Project6 was among this year’s winners, garnering distinctions for recent website design projects. Among the 3,000+ entries received by the Academy for the 2020 w3 Awards, two of Project6’s websites received distinctions—including the Bay Area firm’s work with science and technology nonprofit The Hertz Foundation, which was given a Silver award.

Since 1963, the Fannie and John Hertz Foundation has identified America's most talented innovators in the fields of science and technology, and empowered them to pursue solutions to the world's toughest challenges—from climate change to global health issues. It is widely known as the most exclusive fellowship program in the country. "The mission of the Hertz Foundation is something we really believe in," says Project6 Co-Founder and President Esten Sesto of the nonprofit that offers long-term financial and professional support to an elite group of graduate students pursuing groundbreaking work in science and tech. "Hertz fellows are some of the most brilliant and forward-thinking individuals working today, and it was an exciting challenge to create a website design that reflected that level of excellence, intellect, and passion. Receiving a Silver award from w3 for the resulting website makes us feel that we’ve achieved that goal."

Project6 has made a name for itself serving several organizations in the nonprofit sector, making this distinguished work for The Hertz Foundation only the latest in a portfolio of nonprofit clients that includes Career Girls, The National Sleep Foundation, and the Gordon & Betty Moore Foundation, among others.

In addition to receiving a Silver award for this design, Project6 also took home a Gold award for its Health Care Services web site for ACEs Aware, an early childhood health initiative led by California’s first Surgeon General Dr. Nadine Burke Harris.

These honors join the ten other w3 awards received by Project6, dating back to 2011. As the prestigious website design and development firm heads into 2021, it’s clear that more award-winning work is on the horizon.
