Brief: to build the New Zealand version of the standard British Council website, according to strictly-specified design guidelines and templates.
Hasn't Ali done a fabby job? The BC logo in colour and curving in line with the Link Banner looks brilliant! I'm really pleased with the site! Thanks millions.Dr Michelle McCormack, Science & Development Manager, The British Council
My responsibilities included:
- Creation of the New Zealand site following already established design, architecture and layout templates
- HTML encoding, graphics taken from bi-monthly newsletter
- Development of The Link section using my own design, but in keeping with the rest of the site
- Bi-monthly updates
- Ongoing client liaison.
This was an interesting one - The British Council had rules about everything on their websites - right down to the use of commas. However, I had more freedom on The Link section, which was fun to do. Nice clients, too - and great feedback from the British Council team both here and in the UK.
Best National British Council Website
Voted by the British Council team in the UK.
