Relaunch in record time for HTWG University of Applied Sciences Konstanz

Sprint-Star

The goal was achieved in just eight sprints: In record time, +Pluswerk took care of the technical implementation of the design concept developed by the Berlin agency think moto. And adds a few technical highlights to the successful look. The fast-as-an-arrow Solr Enterprise search provides "Google-standard" search convenience. Users of the website are managed centrally via LDAP connection. This allows students, editors and staff to log in comfortably with their university account. 

The combination of clean, modern design and state-of-the-art technology was recognized by the jury of the TYPO3 Awards as "Best education TYPO3 website".

Concept & Design

 

Precise implementation thanks to Atomic Design: The technical implementation was based on the digital style guide (Patternlab) created by the design agency.

The look is characterized by clearly structured surfaces and large, flat elements. A concept that also ensures an optimal user experience on the move.

The integrated online magazine always gives an up-to-date impression of the many facets of the HTWG. Articles in the magazine are presented in a blog look and can be assigned thematically to categories.
