About the Campaign Website Design for James Cabiness

The site we did for James Cabiness for City Council was an effort to bring the latest trends in campaign website design and function down to the local level, and at a fraction of the cost. The design incorporated the popular one page, scrolling design, to present information most important to potential supporters and voters. The design was fully responsive, ensuring that every user enjoyed a good experience on the site, no matter what device they were using. Features of the website included a mailing list sign up, blog, social media integration, and on site contribution processing.

Announcement of Winners

Winners of the 2015 Reed Award will be announced at the Reed Awards and Conference in Las Vegas, January 22 and 23.
