Awards wins for The Woodland Trust, Oxfam and Chester Zoo

We’re pleased to report that we’re rounding off the year with a triple header of award wins here at Code.

Firstly, the solution we created for Chester Zoo won ‘Mobile Site of the Year’ at the recent Sitecore Awards (check back soon for a blog looking at this win in more detail).

Then the website we created for Oxfam put in a great showing at the 2013 UXUK Awards — it was named ‘Best Effect on Business/Organisational Goals’ winner, and runner up in the ‘Best Not-for-profit/Public Sector’ and ‘Best Transactional’ categories.

And, finally, the new website we created for The Woodland Trust, which launched just a few months ago, has won the 2013 Plain English Website Award.

The Plain English Campaign said that the “… decision to keep the design and content quite simple has paid off — the site is attractive, easy to use, well written and informative.”

We’ll be providing a more detailed look at the process behind the creation of The Woodland Trust website in the Work section shortly. For more on our thoughts on simplicity in web design, see our recent blog ‘Three strategies for simplicity’.
