2019 dotCOMM Awards Spotlight: Rightpoint

We’ll continue to feature some of this year’s most noteworthy dotCOMM Awards entries throughout the competition. 


Organization: Rightpoint
Location: Chicago, IL
Title of Entry: “Sam Zell’s Personal Website”
Category: 52. Website Creativity | Website Design

It’s not every day you come across a bright yellow website, and it’s not every day you come across someone as interesting as Sam Zell. Our friends at Rightpoint put together a dynamic, creative, and informational personal website for one of the most fascinating and quotable pioneers of entrepreneurship.

In reading through the site, visitors are informed of the self-proclaimed “Chairman of Everything, CEO of Nothing.” He has been founding and building hundreds of companies and creating thousands of jobs for nearly 50 years. He is an accomplished author, designer, artist, philanthropist, educator, mentor, and visionary.

The website layout is fresh, fun, and surprisingly modern for a man with such a well-established career in business. As you explore the site you are taken through a digital timeline of his career, his creativity, and his entrepreneurship. The photography is stunning, and the information is just enough to understand who he is, and keep you wanting more information on him (which is conveniently located at the bottom of the homepage).

“If you’re not moving forward, you’re falling behind,” Zell says, and his website is nothing short of innovative and forward-thinking.
