Mach4 was selected as a Web Excellence Award Winner – The 2nd Web Design Award for the Sons of the American Revolution Website.
We are thrilled to announce that Mach4 Design has won its second major award for the South Jersey Chapter, Sons of the American Revolution website. Hot on the heels of our recent MUSE Creative Award, we have now been honored with the Web Excellence Award.
About the Web Excellence Award
The Web Excellence Awards are a prestigious recognition reserved for those who embody excellence on the web. In its 10th season, the competition received over 1,500 entries from 26 countries across 6 continents, including Australia, Canada, Germany, India, Ireland, Israel, South Africa, Switzerland, the Netherlands, Ukraine, the UK, and many more. It is an international celebration of talent, diversity, innovation, and creativity.
To be recognized twice for the same project is incredibly rewarding. It validates our belief that you don’t need a Fortune 500 budget to have a world-class website.
“To be recognized twice for the same project is incredibly rewarding. It validates our belief that you don’t need a Fortune 500 budget to have a world-class website. The South Jersey Chapter now has a site that serves its members and educates the public, all while honoring the legacy of our nation’s founding.” said Robert Harrington Founder / Principal of Mach4 Design, who was also the designer on this project. “These awards affirm our commitment to delivering exceptional web design that serves both the client and the community. We are proud to be part of an international celebration of digital innovation and creativity.”
About the Web Project
The newly designed website for the South Jersey Chapter introduces a fully integrated calendar and event registration system, complete with credit card processing, QR-code ticket checking, and attendance management – a first for the organization. The site also features a rich history section on the Battle of Red Bank, a Patriot Ancestor section, and a special tribute to Rear Admiral Reynold Thomas Hall, a Spanish-American War hero and first president of the organization.
“This award underscores our commitment to delivering exceptional work that resonates both personally and professionally. This is even more special because it wasn’t just another project. It was a labor of love. After five long years of research, I was just personally inducted into the SAR, having proven my ancestor fought in the American Revolution as a member of the Middlesex County, NJ militia,” said Robert.
Additional Features and Design Elements
The website is a valuable resource for members, educators, and the community, offering links to additional resources, news, and happenings related to the organization and historical places and events. Founded in 1923, the chapter covers five counties in New Jersey and is part of the Congressionally chartered Sons of the American Revolution. The redesign celebrates the chapter’s 100th anniversary.
The typefaces and color scheme were carefully selected to resonate with the historical period the organization commemorates. The body copy is based on a typeface released by William Caslon in 1722, a favorite of Benjamin Franklin, which he used for his printings of The American Declaration of Independence and the Constitution. The headers use a modern version of IM Fell English SC, a typeface rooted in the 17th century. The color scheme reflects the colors used in the original American flag, blending historical reverence with modern accessibility and technology.
