New French-Japanese Institute in Tokyo Website

institut_100It’s nice to see so many of my friends here in Tokyo being so busy and productive with work lately. Paul — you might know him as Mr. TAB — just finished work on the redesign (with AQworks) of the French-Japanese Institute in Tokyo’s website, and it’s quite nice. This is what they have to say about the new site:

The Institut is more than the most popular French language school in Tokyo. With its regular festivals, expositions and performances, a multimedia library, restaurant, and cinema, it’s no less than the epicenter of activity for Tokyoites in love with French culture and language. All of this is now apparent on its web site, following the recent redesign by AQ.

The biggest improvements:
– Permanent individual event pages to establish a record that can be shared, printed, revisited and indexed by search engines.
– Vivid, human photography highlighting the institut’s charismatic teachers, and stylish yet approachable decor.
– A flexible, cross-linked information architecture that encourages discovery of other facilities and programs.
– A standards-compliant platform, ensuring accessibility for everyone, including visitors with disabilities, and optimal visibility on search engines.
