Back in 2011, Rocket Media built and launched a new web design for Per Mar Security, a security company in Davenport, IA. Two years later, we’re excited to announce that the website design has held up well. In fact, it recently won a SAMMY award for Best Website Design.

There were over 200 entries for the 12 awards. Each award was narrowed down to three finalists. To determine a winner of the Best Website Design SAMMY, judges considered:

  • Download speed and production quality
  • Originality and presentation appeal
  • Appearance – overall design layout, graphics, photos and color scheme
  • Editorial quality content and usefulness of information
  • Company representation effectiveness

When the SAMMY award winners were announced at the International Security Conference & Exposition (ICS) West in Las Vegas, Nevada on April 9, 2013, Tim Smith, Director of Corporate Support for Per Mar, accepted theBest Website Design award on Per Mar’s behalf.

“This award is proof of the great working partnership Per Mar Security has established with Rocket Media. They listen to our needs and then provide the solutions we need,” Tim said.

Of course, when Tim told us about the award we were pretty excited, too.

“We’re extremely proud of the website we created for Per Mar, and it’s an honor that it has been formally recognized with this award,” said our CEO, Ben Kalkman. “But much of the credit goes to Per Mar for their willingness to listen and their desire to improve. Congratulations to them!”
