Blue Water Named Official Webby Honoree

April 11, 2016   |   Blue Water

Blue Water was named an Honoree in The 20th Annual Webby Awards for our work on the U.S. Capitol Visitor Center Website in the Cultural Institutions website category.

This project was an exciting one for the team here at Blue Water. The U.S. Capitol Visitor Center attracts millions of visitors from all around the world. The challenge the team faced was translating the beauty and significance of an in-person visit to the U.S. Capitol into a digital experience.

The new website invites visitors to take a walk through the history of the Capitol and Congress.  Immersed in larger-than-life, ultra-high resolution images, online visitors experience the stories, knowledge, and important legislation that has helped craft the United States of America that we know today. cvcscreenshot5


Our invitation was heard loud and clear, the new design, user experience, and navigation has increased visits by over 40% and pages per visit by over 20%.

We are proud of our teams that continue to take our projects to the next level and are being honored for their hard work. Congratulations everyone!

If you have never been to the U.S. Capitol you should plan a trip and of course, visit the website for a breathtaking preview of what you will see at the home of the legislative branch of The United States.
