E.M. Forster, great Victorian-born champion of the internet, sorry, humanism, once wrote this:
“Letters have to pass two tests before they can be classed as good: they must express the personality both of the writer and of the recipient”.
The Royal Mail‘s revamped website is the latest in a string of big organisations meeting new and improved standards in customer experience.
The aesthetic of the site accounts largely for its improvements, and the site as it stands can be seen, excuse me Edward, to express more of the Royal Mail’s personality as well as those of its various audiences.
First, I’ll look at some interesting little here’s and there’s from around the site before panning out.
