State government Rhineland-Palatinate
Modern, user-friendly and flexible - thus the website of Rhineland-Palatinate rlp.de presents itself. Design and Realisation of this relaunch was done by dkd Internet Service GmbH in Frankfurt on basis of TYPO3.
Before, the website of the state government of Rhineland-Palatinate was shaped mostly by news, this needed to be revised and adjusted to the changed user habits (Keyword: optimisation for mobile devices). Furthermore the website should be themed more.
Based on the targets and wishes of the client the website was fundamentally revised in a longer conception phase. Great emphasis was placed on readability, accessibility and mobile usability. The integration of different thematic blocks underlines the informative character of the website and enables the visitor the start into the focal themes of the state government.
Realized was this responsive relaunch with TYPO3 CMS and Foundation framework as a basis for the html development. Apart of the user data more than 20.000 news and 10.000 newsletter recipients were migrated.
The numerous websites of the ministries and further regional authorities were gradually integrated into the TYPO3 central installation and present themselves in the same new design.
