Monday, August 19, 2013 Web work wins Apex Award’s 125th Anniversary timeline with video for the law firm Jackson Walker has earned a 2013 Apex Award of Excellence for special purpose websites. Co-created with our project partner Communications Design Inc., the anniversary site was one of only two winners in its category. Jackson Walker L.L.P. is a national law firm based in Dallas. JW's culture is unique, as we quickly discovered--easygoing and success-driven all at once.  It was a delight to video-interview so many of the partners, who narrated stories about the firm and its key cases with such verve and precision.
