milch & zucker were to implement the design re-launch in 2015.
The design templates were provided by Prof. Korfmacher (Professorship for Communication Design, University of Düsseldorf).Task:
As part of further development in 2015, the challenge lay in combining a complex, performant and practical system with a new front end design without losing the proven look & feel, and to even make it better, more attractive and contemporary. Functional logic and existing processes at the back end should remain usable as well. As part of the layout re-launch, a new functional area was introduced as well – the Studi classes. They are intended to help graduates to fill any potential gaps in knowledge in various subjects before starting further education.Solution:
As of October 2012, the technological implementation was based on the BeeSite Recruiting Edition. Existing design templates for the layout re-launch were evaluated and analysed in regards to feasibility. The resulting implementation concept for the new front end was then naturally done in responsive design, optimised for use with mobile terminals.
