Thackray Museum in Leeds
2008 Website excellence on a low budget Commendation
A commendation was awarded to the Thackray Museum in Leeds, for their website redevelopment project. The museum consulted young visually impaired people from Henshaws College in York and incorporated a range of their recommendations into the design. Why a commendation and not a full award? Though judges appreciated the Thackray Museum’s excellent work in general, and in particular in consulting user groups, there were some technical infringements of accessibility guidelines that remain important factors. It is advancing standards of technical compliance, as well as inspiring creative connections, that the Jodi Awards are about, after all.
