Award by the members of the Greater Barryville Chamber


“For over 12 years we have worked with Dorene Warner at W Design to develop invitation packages and event signage for galas and celebrity sports auctions. W Design pays particular attention to each event venue to incorporate the space’s unique characteristics into the event’s visuals. From working in American Museum of Natural History to the Intrepid Sea, Air & Space Museum, from Copacabana to three of Manhattan’s Cipriani Clubs, W Design is always professional, timely and a pleasure to work with.”

“Stellar work! Our website was stuck in the dark ages. We needed a way to encourage educators, historians and the general public to visit our museum and learn about New Jersey’s mining industry. Ms. Warner toured the museum, understood the character of this vast place and interpreted it perfectly. She read our minds!”

– Mikki Wiess, The Sterling Hill Mining Museum

The home of Gifford Pinchot the father of the U.S. Forest Service and the conservation movement in America. The design surpassed our wildest expectations.”
