GEORGETOWN – John Guilfoil Public Relations LLC is proud to announce that it has received two honors at the 2022 American Inhouse Design Awards for its website design and development.

The JGPR team was recognized for developing a custom City of Groveland website, one of five websites that have been redesigned and launched for the city, including: Municipal, Police, Fire, Water and Sewer and library.

Development of the Grovleand Municipal website was managed by Website Project Manager Kristen Potter and developed by WordPress Specialist Katelyn Goddard and Public Relations Assistant Kayla Rochon.

The City of Groveland requested a modern and unique design that captures the essence of the city. The team incorporated design and content elements to meet the city’s needs and created a user-friendly and easy-to-use platform for residents, and created something beyond expectation.

One of the main goals of the project was to create a consistent look and feel and user experience across all five sites. Additionally, JGPR created a new town logo that incorporates elements of the Elms and Elm Park Gazebo.

“Cities and towns across America need bolder website designs that make the user interface simple and seamless while providing a visual experience on par with businesses and e-commerce sites,” said the principal owner of JGPR, John Guilfoil. “Furthermore, the focus in these times must be on providing city agencies with a place to easily post and promote their news and events. I am proud of the hard work that has gone into Project Groveland, and we look forward to providing the same level of service to other communities. »

The city’s website homepage provides residents with an interactive experience to best suit their wants and needs, including the ability to easily access city government offices, community resources, a community calendar, waste and recycling information, and information about COVID-19.

The site also integrates with Groveland’s social media accounts, so news and updates are shared with a wider audience.

JGPR was also honored for developing an app for the Melrose Police Department. The app allows residents to receive push notifications, submit online forms, and contact the department. Goddard led the development of the project, making it the first such application for JGPR.

GDUSA’s American Inhouse Design Awards recognize the exceptional work of in-house designers and their departments, bringing value to their clients, agencies and causes. The winners are among the top 10% of participants. The judges reviewed more than 7,000 entries this year.

John Guilfoil Public Relations LLC also provides public relations and communications services to the Melrose Police Department, City of Groveland and its agencies. Founder and Principal Guilfoil and Project Manager Potter both live in Groveland.
