FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Denver Seminary Website Wins Award for Excellence
The Denver Seminary website is the recipient of the Silver Astral Award for excellence in web design and usability. The award was given by Astral Awards (www.astralawards.com), a website that recognizes other noteworthy websites. Awards are voted upon by fellow web designers. The Astral Awards are based on the very best websites on the Internet that demonstrate the most important aspects of any site design: a clean HTML code and graphics, easy-to-use menus and clear navigation, good choices of fonts and colors, correct spelling and grammar, and a seamless continuity of original content.
The Silver Award represents excellence in overall design, content and back-end code, which allows website users to search quickly and efficiently. This award is given to only 5% of website applicants. According to their website, 79% of applicants do not receive any recognition. The Silver Award comes only second to the Gold Award, which is given to only 1% of applicants. DJ Turner, Director of Communications, states that the Silver Astral Award means "our site was still deemed one of the best out there."
This is the second noteworthy award the Denver Seminary website has earned in the past year and represents Denver Seminary's high quality of website communication to all its constituents.
Denver Seminary's redesigned web site, which launched September 25, 2007, was designed by Mark Priestap of DesignWise Studios and developed by Monk Development (www.monkdevelopment.com). Oversight of the project was handled by DJ Turner, who works in the Advancement Office. To visit the award-winning website today, visit www.denverseminary.edu.
