As we’re nearing the end of 2009, I thought it would be a good time to look back at some of the most popular posts from Corporate Eye this year.
I’ve listed the most popular from each of our writers, based on pageviews, so later posts don’t get such a good run-up – most of these are from the first half of the year. I’ll add a few of the most popular ones from the second half of the year below.
Interestingly, the posts that received most visitors aren’t always the ones I would have expected to be the most popular – but I’m glad that people found them useful, interesting or entertaining.
Accessibility and Usability
Helen Baker wrote about accessibility and usability this year:
Susan Gunelius writes about a wide range of brand issues for us: here about popular brands of 2009, and the impact of brand changes:
