Reading Room Scores Top Marks!

29/06/2012 - London

Reading Room continues its award success with its Blog design for Taste the Glenlivet, achieving top marks in the recent Interactive Media Awards, one of only 9 sites to ever achieve a perfect score!

A stalwart at the IMAs, Reading Room have delivered many sites which have been recognised for their design, content, feature functionality, usability and standards compliance, and cross-browser compatibility. With the Taste the Glenlivet site however, we’ve placed the cherry atop the cake by scoring the maximum score; 500/500.

The Glenlivet fans love nothing more than engaging with content about whisky appreciation. The blog provides article after article about tasting, drinking and mixing whisky. From cask making to making whisky, the people behind The Glenlivet production make regular appearances on our blog. As a result, the blog is regarded as an authority on all things whisky. If a sign of a healthy blog is reader participation, then The Glenlivet blog is alive and well. Users frequently comment on posts, contributing ideas of their own, and inspiring others to appreciate the whisky in fresh new ways.

Not only has this work been honoured, our very own blog Digital Conversations has also achieved Best in Class recognition, with an outstanding score of 494/500.
