Over at Express Publishing’s Web Department Nico Haitas who formed part of the development and design of the new Upstream International Microsite have just received another industry recognition award from Hot CSS Design. This is our 5th award for Express Publishing´s various websites to date, YAY!

What is Upstream?

It is a FREE English as a Foreign Language micro site for young adults, complete with downloads, home activities aptly named (Go Active!), educational online games, sing along etc. It is also a FREE resource for teachers of the course as it has many useful resources for them to download.

Why is this important?

Well educational websites are usually very drab and boring, with the Upstream International Microsite we have managed to break this stereotyping and come up with a fresh exciting design which is finally made it into a design recognition site.

Furthermore the site´s handmade code is completely accessible to all, has been tested for colour vision impairment and is super easy to navigate and use meaning a further attraction for the awards. Not forgetting that it has been tested and works in IE6, IE7, IE8, Firefox, Opera, Safari, Flock and Chrome, phew what a mouthful.

What can you do to help?

Please go to Hot CSS Design (which can be found here… http://hotcssdesign.com/1535-upstream.html ) and give the Upstream International Microsite a star rating or you may be a superstar and write your comments for the site’s coding and design. No need to be a specialist to write a comment, but please, you do need to be honest. We use these comments to further improve our site design and development in the future, so that the interfaces may be friendlier and easier to use.

Thank you all in advance!
