The 2016 all-staff party ended on a great note -- several great notes, in fact. Members of the projekt202 team stepped into the spotlight to share their musical talents at the after-party jam session.
As the party continued, it came time for projekt202 CEO and Chairman David Lancashire and Chief Experience Officer and Co-Founder Peter Eckert to take the stage for award presentations. The duo recognized employees for outstanding achievements across the full spectrum of projekt202's services and toasted to a successful year ahead.
The festivities were red-hot in the House of Blues. With plenty of delicious food (seriously, the bacon-wrapped dates were heavenly), flowing cocktails and equally flowing conversations, projekt202's annual party was well underway.
Emerald City set the mood and got partygoers jazzed up. Named "Entertainers of the Year" by the Dallas Morning News and D Magazine, Emerald City is renowned for its sound as one of the best live party bands in Dallas.
Naturally, it wasn't long before the projekt202 team decided to show off some sweet moves on the dance floor.

AUSTIN, TEXAS April 18, 2012 — projekt202 LLC, a leading-edge user experience design and development studio, announces that it has been included by Gartner Inc. in its “Cool Vendors in Application Development, 2012” report, authored by Brian Prentice, Jim Duggan, Mark Driver and Thomas Murphy, published April 10, 2012.
“We are very honored to be selected as one of the 2012 Cool Vendors,” explains Peter Eckert, chief experience officer, projekt202. “We are thrilled that Gartner understands the growing importance of user experience methodology and the critical role it is playing in application development.”
According to the report, “Organizations that use applications as a central part of their customer engagement or go-to-market model have the most immediate reason to care about conceptual, design-driven UX work. This goes well beyond the branded look-and-feel work traditionally associated Web design work, as customer-facing applications are now likely to be built for native mobile platform and integrated with corporate IT systems. Getting functional compositions right based on a nuanced understanding of the targeted user community is increasingly important not only to create satisfied customers, but also to reduce the cost of upfront development and ongoing maintenance and support effective agile development work.”
