Rosa Luxemburg Foundation - TYPO3 relaunch with lots of pictures, lots of news, lots of attitude

Starting Point For The Relaunch

Over the years, the structure and navigation of the Rosa Luxemburg Foundation's old site have been adapted to the Foundation's themes and work units - thus, clarity and orientation have fallen behind.

Although the design reflected the corporate design of the foundation well, the division of space and the typography did not seem to be very device overlapping and contemporary.

Central wishes for the redesign were:

  • more overview, more active introductory offer to the many offers of the foundation

  • updated, contemporary online design

  • varied overview of the current topics and events of the foundation

  • an easily recognizable thematic focus of individual pages

  • more editorial freedom

UX Concept

For the user personalities defined in previous workshops, their central concerns and use cases, entry scenarios were developed to check the fit of the page structure and the elements for the target groups.

In addition to the very varied dynamic overview pages provided by the Newsall extension, the monothematic filterable tile and list pages in particular allow quick access and targeted retrieval of specific content.

Responsive views of the new site on desktop, tablet and smartphone
By selecting categories and keywords, the search can compile thematic dossier pages.
The overview of the numerous current appointments is also generated dynamically via the elastic search.
