Announcements Soars to a Gold W3 Award

It’s spread its wings, and we couldn’t be prouder. Viking, launched by Upanup in June, has been awarded a Gold W3 Award.

Released in tandem with Viking’s celebrations of the 50th anniversary of the Twin Otter, the website pays homage to both the de Havilland legacy and Viking’s future-forward, global marketplace. Crafted with a mobile-first approach, Viking’s responsive, touch-friendly design speaks to the company’s highly mobile audiences and workforce.

What makes special?

It’s smart.

Integration with the company’s client relationship management systems allows for the capture of user behaviour data that can be used for continual refinements to search engine optimization and marketing along with internal sales processes. Interactive maps make finding your nearest sales contact a no-brainer.

New Greater Victoria Harbour Authority Website Brings the Harbour Experience to You


Earlier this month not-for-profit society Greater Victoria Harbour Authority (GVHA) released a new website that supports their vision for a memorable harbour experience through an updated look, enhanced usability features and dedicated space to share their stories.

Focused on providing GVHA stakeholders with vital information, the site is designed to improve visitor experience through clean design and prominent navigation. Communication between GVHA and their many stakeholders is also brought to the fore with the prominent "I want to” and “Talk to us” menus. 

The interactive map, which provides an at-a-glance view of GVHA’s numerous properties and amenities, allows users to explore the areas most relevant to them. Inclusion of a weather widget, a must for harbour users, makes weather data accessible from every page in the website.
