Connecticut League of History Organizations: 2020 Award of Merit

“We are impressed with the Gunn Museum’s well-developed research process and involvement of the community in formulating the exhibition’s content. The result was a thoughtful, comprehensive history of the town of Washington that connected this one place with the larger American story in meaningful ways.”

Graphic Design USA: 2019 American Graphic Design Award

“Graphic Design USA (GDUSA) is a leading organization for the design industry whose mission is to identify and showcase best practices and exemplary design in all forms. GDUSA highlights organizations who have demonstrated design excellence on a national level. Of the 10,000 entries submitted in 2019, a highly selective 10% were chosen as a winner. The Gunn Historical Museum’s exhibit Washington Connecticut – An American Story, created by design agency SandorMax, was awarded the 2019 GDUSA Design Award for Exhibit Design excellence.”


Run don’t walk to see the new exhibit, Washington Connecticut – An American Story at the Gunn Historical Museum. This is the first project to cross the finish line to completion in the Good to Great state grant program – and it simply nailed it. Object rich, thoughtfully thematic – a feast for the mind and eye and a stellar demonstration of why local history is living history. This is the kind of performance that museums 10 times the size struggle to pull off.

– William Hosley, Museum consultant, former Executive Director New Haven Museum and Connecticut Landmarks


Litchfield Magazine: Washington’s Magical History Tour

Small-town historical museums all too often conjure up memories of bored, rainy-day childhood visits to creaky airless rooms invariably cluttered with dusty vitrines, blurry daguerreotypes of grim-faced worthies, moldy documents, the reek of camphor, and at least one antique spinning wheel. The Gunn Historical Museum in Washington shatters that stereotype. The Gunn has put together Washington, Connecticut—An American Story, a beautiful and rich award-winning multimedia exhibit that traces the history of the town back thousands of years through to the present day. For the curious visitors or local enthusiasts, a few hours exploring this fascinating microcosm of the American experience will be time well spent.

What Our Clients Are Saying

“Town economic development is a challenge in Connecticut. Community branding and marketing is even more challenging. Washington is in the middle of both, and SandorMax has demonstrated real capabilities in support of our efforts. They listen and learn, effectively engage the community in the planning and implement with the most current social media capabilities.

For communities seeking to advance their economic and social well-being with enhanced “story telling” for both internal and external audiences, SandorMax is a communications agency that should be seriously considered.”

Dan Sherr

Washington CT Economic Development

“Our experience with SandorMax exceeds expectations. Our project involved multiple organizations and stakeholders. The SandorMax team invested a great deal upfront to understand not only the scope and detail of our project but the values, vision and priorities of all involved. The project stayed on track and the outcome is a website we love.”

Sherry Ostrout

“SandorMax made a big contribution to the early development of the Andrew Goodman Foundation, especially our logo – which remains a mainstay of our visual identity. It continues to grow the programs and the vision that will honor and leverage Andy’s legacy.”

Sylvia Golbin-Goldman

Executive Director
Andrew Goodman Foundation

“We couldn’t be happier with our choice of SandorMax for the branding and development of our community website. The project required the expertise to manage and design a comprehensive and interactive website, prepare content, integrate a third party vendor’s back end system and the development of a complex member and business directory. Our high expectations were exceeded, on time and on budget. I was very impressed with the quality of work, level of service and meticulous attention to detail. I’ve worked with hundreds of consulting firms over the years and I’ve never had such a positive experience. We could not have picked a better team of professionals to represent us.”

“When our Destination Ridgefield team was ready to develop a virtual tourism website to showcase our town, we chose SandorMax. The website has been enormously successful, achieving our goal to promote Ridgefield as a destination for visitors, residents, and businesses. They designed a beautiful and dynamic site that’s so easy to navigate, we get lots of repeat visitors with several pages per visit. Most importantly, they are wonderful strategic partners that add tremendous marketing perspective for our Destination initiative. SandorMax doesn’t just do what is expected – they do much more and act as a true partner.”
