Independent Media eStart portal 1.0

[The work is in the museum]

eStart is the name of a large online project by Independent Media Publishing House.

One may call this site a treasury of amazing facts and useful information from answers to silly questions to serious political issues. It comprises articles published in Independent Media’s magazines and newspapers: Domashny Ochag, Playboy, Cosmopolitan, Men’s Health, Yes!, Drive, Harper’s Bazaar, Marie Claire, Kult Lichnostey, The Moscow Times, Vedomosti, Vitrina.

Some may notice that eStart looks a bit like go.com—its maker consulted Independent Media on the project

eStart is a result of several months of work as we created and optimized tons of illustrations and wrote and debugged miles of scripts. Those who like quizzes can finally enjoy their interactive versions. Those eager to communicate are welcome to multi-user chat rooms.

The site features “ushki” ads, forums and a&bnsp;search engine. Online publication is administered using Imprimatur, a powerful tool developed by the Studio specially for eStart.

eStart is optimised for men, women and teenageres.
