NBS Chorus and publication styling (2 of 2)

 I previously blogged about the new stylesheet functionality in NBS Chorus:

As part of some fun testing we had a competition to see who could create the best output using the new feature. We asked Twitter to decide the winner.

In February 2002, 8.7million people voted to decide the X Factor winner between Will Young and Gareth Gates. The excitement and anticipation was no less in October 2020, we received 14 votes to decide the two finalists for the NBS print stylesheet championship.

A sad day for 'Double trouble' which was the Hamil effort :(

So the two finalists are 'Grey sky at night' and 'Front page pics'. Twitter will decide who wins the £20 Amazon voucher.

- Vote now

Grey sky at night
Word background imagery on cover page and great use of meta data throughout
Front page pics
Similar use of meta data - some of the crack team of testers on the lovely front page

- Vote now

Update - winner was Grey Sky at Night - well done BB!

One special mention for a final entry which just didn't make the finish deadline. This came in from our Platform Delivery Director early Saturday morning. Disqualified for (a) not being on brand and (b) missing the deadline. But worth posting due to the awesome use of of meta data on the spec pages.

Awesome front cover

Just showing off now by toggling the section meta data vertically on each page :)
