Rachel Irvine collects an award on behalf of 3di

Best conceptual communication

Rachel Irvin received an award on behalf of 3di for Best conceptual communication with the Engineering Construction Industry Association – Productivity Best Practice Guides.

What the judges said

“The Engineering Construction Industry Association (ECIA) have published six Productivity Best Practice Guides, and two (Workforce Planning and Supervision) formed this entry.

Committees within the ECIA determined what the best practice should be, and this information was then developed into guides that are engaging, consistent and – above all – useful to UK Engineering Construction Industry. We particularly liked the overviews for each section, and the provision of checklists.”


Susanne Dahlén and Maria Eklund receive an award

Best procedural communication

Susanne Dahlén, Maria Eklund received an award for Best procedural communication with the C-SPY® Debugging Guide for Advanced RISC Machines Ltd’s ARM® entry.

What the judges said

“Written for an international audience with a high level of technical knowledge, this guide provides instructions for using the IAR C-SPY tool to find errors in software for embedded computer systems.

The clear straightforward language used throughout the document is essential as it is only translated into one language (Japanese); both this and the logical structure and clear signposting (including good use of colour) make this entry a winner.


Gary Appleton collects an award

Best use of video, interaction and multi media

Gary Appleton received an award for Best use of video, interaction and multi media with the Paragon Help, Paragon System Operation Guide.

What the judges said

“Paragon Help is designed for all users from novice to advanced level. The objective is to allow ease of use at all levels and for the user to know that the answer is available without recourse to Support.

The entry is clearly written and explains concepts and features well. The user can be confident that the information is readily available and at the level required for any given enquiry. The design is very attractive and well implemented. The combination of media and graphics for Help and PDF is particularly effective. Interactive animation is used to very good effect. It is this combination which marks the entry as a winner in this class. A very accomplished piece of work.


Paul Ballard collects an award on behalf of 3di

Best use of single sourcing and multi-channel publishing

Paul Ballard received an award on behalf of 3di for Best use of single sourcing and multi-channel publishing with the Vertu Signature Touch User Guides.

What the judges said

“Written for an international audience, these guides to prestige mobile phones were written in English and translated into 21 other languages.

Clear and easy to follow, these guides are an excellent example of collaboration across disciplines providing a set of documents that meet the needs of a diverse international audience with high expectations.


Alison Walton collects an award on behalf of 3di

Best product integration

Alison Walton received an award on behalf of 3di for Best product integration with the Vertu Accessories User Guide.

What the judges said

“Placed in the product box, these guides to accessories for a range of prestige mobile phones form a large part of the customer’s first impression, which is of a high-quality exclusive product.

Written in English and translated into several other languages, we were impressed both by the simplicity and elegance of the instructions and by the consistency in appearance both between the different accessories and across language versions.


John Kearney receives merit

John Kearney was awarded merit for the IT Content Assistance entry.

What the judges said

“Written to help non-technical communicators tasked with writing help for IT topics, these guides cover both best practice in general and on the specific requirements of a particular organisation.

Clear and easy to follow, the guides provide a starting point for novice writers and for those with more experience who need to achieve a level of consistency across the organisation. We appreciated the time constraints for this project, and commended the writer for providing a framework for future work within it.
