D’Angelico Guitars, the Edison, NJ-based maker of handcrafted archtop guitars for some of the world’s best musicians, shares this Official Honoree recognition with BostonGlobe.com, a website that’s earned critical acclaim for its responsive design, and JetBlue.com, a website that’s produced a clean, simple and smart booking system.
