About client

The Eugeniusz Geppert Academy of Art and Design  in Wroclaw is a state university. It educates students on full-time studies and part-time studies in eleven directions in five faculties: Painting, Sculpture and Art Mediation, Graphics and Media Art, Ceramics and Glass, Interior Architecture, Design and Stage Design.

Our role

We created a new structure of content and navigation as well as created a new design of the user interface. Also we delivered a flexible tool that allows editors to change the structure on the website without help of the development team. Migration, setup hosting, trainings and support was also part of the project.

Challenges

The biggest challenge and success of the project was the migration of over 25,000 articles and 80,000 multimedia items to Drupal 9. Migration was run from a dedicated system written in PHP several years ago. Interesting topics was also statistics and monitoring servers and better searching for documents on page with ElasticSearch. Website respect user privacy, statistics and information about users are not shared outside e.g. with Google or Facebook.

The results

We hope that the new website will serve not only students but also employees and editors who manage the website on a daily basis for the next years. New design have a good feedback from students, document and materials a better searchable. Website is responsive and optimize for mobile. Old galleries and articles are well presented in new structure.
