Local government's website wins awards

LAWRENCEVILLE -- Gwinnett County's expanded website — www.gwinnettcounty.com — designed by Mighty 8th Media and officially launched in August 2011, has won two awards from the National Association of County Information Officers.

After judges reviewed nearly 350 entries in nine categories from large and small municipalities, Gwinnett County's site earned both superior and best in class awards.

Joe Sorenson, communications director for Gwinnett County, gave credit to the web designer.

"We were pleased with how well and how quickly Mighty 8th was able to design our vision and specifications," Sorenson said. "The site provides for easy intuitive navigation to county services and information as well as a fresh, appealing web presence."
