Bay Area Website Design & Development Firm, Project6 Design, Wins Davey Award for Litigation Graphics & Trial Strategy Website

Berkeley, California (EastBayDaily) — San Francisco Bay Area branding and website design and development firm Project6 Design was honored once again by The 2012 Davey Awards, sponsored by The International Academy of the Visual Arts (IAVA), in recognition of the finest creative work from the world’s best small firms, agencies, and companies. Project6 received a Silver Award in the Law and Legal Services category for their website design and development for Cogent Legal, a litigation graphics and trial strategy firm.

Project6 built the new Cogent Legal website with the Drupal content management system (CMS) which allows the Cogent Team to easily add new content to keep the site both relevant and engaging. Additionally, the site boasts a customized portfolio review section that provides sample images and videos of their litigation graphics and trial strategy work, as well as compelling news items and testimonials. The site also includes a client login area for Cogent’s clients to login and view secure documents related to trials.

“Even though I’m an attorney and our clients are other attorneys and law firms, I didn’t want Cogent Legal’s site to look like a law firm site,” said Morgan C. Smith, Esq., president and founder of Cogent Legal. “I wanted it to look more like an architecture firm’s site, with clean, modern lines and a visually engaging, easy-to-navigate portfolio of images. Searching for a web design and branding firm that could understand and implement this vision, I went outside the circle of design and marketing firms that have built sites for many law firms to find a design firm whose portfolio conveyed the look and feel I wanted to emulate: Project6 Design in Berkeley."

“Project6 is pleased to be recognized again by The 2012 Davey Awards for our work with Cogent Legal on this Drupal website design and development project,” says Esten Sesto, president, Project6. “It’s really fulfilling when we can help a business in their efforts to grow and evolve. Cogent Legal was a great partner in this project, and we are really proud that their new website has been selected as an award winner.”
