All of us at Global Reach are happy to report that we've had a very successful summer! With the wrap up of four large projects over the last year, we went into “awards season" with high hopes. We were not disappointed; Global Reach has been recognized for our work on the following websites: Iowa Attorney General, American Country Home Store, The Graphic Edge and Court Avenue Brewing Company.
Court Avenue Brewing Company
Court Avenue Restaurant & Brewing Company wanted to give their website a modern face-lift using a responsive, mobile-friendly design. This new design would provide hassle-free browsing to visitors on-the-go. Global Reach worked with Court Avenue Brewing Company to achieve a design that would mirror the downtown urban feel of the restaurant and brew pub’s location. The project earned Global Reach three highly acclaimed awards: A 2015 WebAward for Outstanding Achievement in Web Development, a Silver W3 Award in the restaurant category and a Silver Davey Award.
Iowa Attorney General
The new and improved website for the Iowa Attorney General, like Court Avenue Brewing Company, also employs a responsive design. The ‘mobile-friendly’ website provides an easy way for visitors to stay up-to-date on the latest consumer advisories, file important registration documents with the state, or report a consumer complaint - and they can do all of this with ease whether they are browsing from their desktop, smartphone or tablet. The website was honored with one WebAward in August and one WAGGY Award in July.
The Graphic Edge
The Graphic Edge sought out our team aspiring to create a custom developed online t-shirt designer so that customers could quickly create and print their own t-shirt designs. Global Reach designed the website to be responsive and incorporated a bold new look to attract their primary demographics - sports enthusiasts and local business. The Academy of Visual Arts awarded Global Reach a Silver Davey Award for the project.
American Country Home Store
Another Silver Davey Award was awarded to American Country Home Store, a local business right out of Ames. They needed an ecommerce website solution which would accommodate their local and national customer base. As an online store, the website also required a responsive design so that mobile users could easily make purchases from their tablets or smartphones. The finished website not only serves as their online storefront, but also works as a product management tool, boasting a robust admin area that makes it easy to manage products and categories, as well as all orders made through the website.
You could say we had a busy year! And a gratifying one, at that, as all of this hard work has definitely paid off.
President and CEO, Iacovos Zachariades had this to say of the company’s recent achievements:
“We are thrilled to have received such praise from these highly established awards competitions. We take great pride in providing top quality service to our friends and clients, and to have it confirmed in this way is incredibly gratifying.

It's thanks to them that we get to take part in the kinds of opportunities that challenge and grow our skill sets every day.”
