New Visit Gilroy Website Wins Hermes Platinum Award

May 8, 2018 (Gilroy, CA): The brand-new VisitGilroy.com website only launched a few weeks ago—but has already been recognized with a prestigious international design award. The new website, designed by Gilroy creative services firm Articulate Solutions to promote Gilroy as a destination for travelers from around the world, was awarded the highest Platinum Award for Tourism Website from Hermes Creative Awards.

Jane Howard, Executive Director for Visit Gilroy and the Gilroy Welcome Center, stated, “We couldn’t be more thrilled with our beautiful new website—and we’re so proud to share the honor of this award with the amazing creative team at Articulate Solutions!”

The new VisitGilroy.com website provides a complete resource for visitors to Gilroy as well as local residents. The dynamic new design features colorful photographs and a dotted line motif that invites visitors to “follow the fun” as they plan their trip to the Garlic Capital of the World. The website makes it easy for users to find information about featured attractions like the Gilroy Garlic Festival and Gilroy Gardens Family Theme Park and includes complete hotel, restaurant, and winery listings as well as a calendar of upcoming events. The new website also includes a checklist of “33 Things to Do in Gilroy” as well as suggested itineraries to help visitors plan their “Great Gilroy Getaway.”
