NCJW Essex Winner of 2016 American Web Design Award

Graphic Design USA (GDUSA) has awarded the National Council of Jewish Women, Essex County Section (NCJW/Essex) and Lobello Design of Kenilworth, NJ, an American Web Design Award for its newly re-designed NCJW/Essex website. From more than 1,250 entries worldwide, the NCJW Essex website was one of the projects selected as a winner. In announcing the award, the editor/publisher of GDUSA commented, “the design and development of your website is, simply, outstanding.”

The new website, www.ncjwessex.org was launched a year ago in the summer of 2015. “Our goal was to better brand the organization, feature more of a homepage, be more user-friendly and interactive, and give us a more contemporary, visually appealing look,” explained Lisa Blumert, Director of Communications for NCJW/Essex. “We wanted to insure that we had a better designed and attractive website that will be dynamic and functional for the future.” The website re-design project also included a sister website, the Linda & Rudy Slucker NCJW/Essex Center for Women, www.centerforwomenNJ.org. Both new engaging websites allows users to register more easily and find out information about all the events and programs at NCJW/Essex and the Center for Women.

Graphic Design USA is a magazine for graphic design professionals based in New York City. This is the 53rd year that Graphic Design USA has organized competitions for the creative community. The American Web Design Awards celebrate the power of well-designed websites and other online communications to attract audiences, generate engagement and response, and promote products, services, ideas and causes.
