Eureka! Our award-winning website!

Wednesday 27 February

We’re incredibly proud to announce that our playful new website has received international recognition at the IMAs (the Interactive Media Awards), receiving Best in Class – the highest accolade given.

IMA winners are decided by an international panel of judges and based on rigorous scoring across 5 categories; Design, Content, Feature Functionality, Usability and Standards Compliance & Cross-Browser Compatibility.

The new Eureka! website, launched in November 2012, was designed and built by the fantastic team at Reading Room Manchester, who also developed the Eureka! Play 20 website, launched in February 2012.

Sophie Ballinger, Eureka!’s Web & Media Manager said “We’re as pleased as punch to receive this award, as it really does recognise all of the hard work put in by all involved, both here at Eureka! and of course  the exceptionally talented team at Reading Room Manchester, who have breathed a new lease of life into our online presence. Let’s hope it’s the first of many awards!”

Diana Erskine, Managing Director at Reading Room Manchester said “Working with the team at Eureka! has been fantastic, and the best thing about winning this award is that it truly reflects the quality of the working relationship that delivered the website. We were very clear that the one thing we had to achieve – beyond everything else – for the team was to produce a site that really captured the essence of their organisation, and like them we are delighted with the outcome. Our other priority was for the site to work beautifully; the user journeys had to be seamless, and it’s brilliant to see the improvement in analytics to show the instantly beneficial effect this has had. All in all, the project delivery has been highly rewarding and the team have themselves enjoyed the benefits of learning through play.”
