ABMC website

Since 2012, Rock Creek has partnered with the American Battle Monuments Commission (ABMC) on the implementation of a website redesign and aligned content management system, as well as subsequent strategic optimizations. Our work on was recently recognized when the website was named among the top 10 government websites providing an excellent citizen experience.

Rankings were based on the ForeSee E-Government Satisfaction Index, which weighed 220,000 survey responses across 100 federal government websites, mobile sites, and applications. Responses were scored on a 100-point scale, with scores 80 and above deemed as having highly satisfied visitors. We were excited to learn that ABMC’s satisfaction score of 85 outranked top retail websites such as Amazon (83), L.L. Bean (82) and Apple (80), according to the Answers Experience Index (AXI): 2014 U.S. Retail Edition. The private sector sets the bar on outstanding user experiences, and we’re happy to have made great strides in raising the standard of excellence for citizen experiences on government websites.

AIGA 10 for 20 logo

Back in November, we announced our involvement with the AIGA Continuum Fund’s 10 for 30 Campaign and urged our network to contribute to this worthy cause.  We’re proud to report that, with your help, Rock Creek and the nine other DC-area design firms that participated achieved our ambitious goal of raising $30,000 for the Design Continuum Fund. And, in fact, we surpassed that goal by $10,000! 

The Design Continuum Fund is an annual merit-based scholarship program that supports local design-minded students by offering them financial assistance to pursue further education in design.  Many of these students have incredible stories to tell—beautiful stories that deserve to be celebrated and shared. Today, we’d like to highlight the story of one beneficiary of the Design Continuum Fund’s program: Yathrib Ragsdale.
