Our Client

The Eugeniusz Geppert Academy of Art and Design in Wroclaw is a state university. Its students enroll into a full-time or part-time programme of studies choosing among eleven directions across five different 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 shaped a new design of the user interface. We additionally delivered a flexible tool that allows editors to change the structure on the website without any assistance from the development team. Required migration, setup hosting, trainings and support were all an essential part of the project.

Challenges faced

The biggest challenge and, at the same time, the most successful part of the project was the migration of over 25,000 articles and 80,000 multimedia items to Drupal 9. The migration was run from a dedicated system written in PHP several years before. The statistics turned out to be an interesting topic as we well along with monitoring servers and better search capacities for documents on page with ElasticSearch. The websites respects the privacy of it users so that the statistics and user information are never shared out of the site, that is with Google or Facebook, for instance.

Outcomes

We hope that the new website will serve not only the students but also the employees and the editors who manage the website on a daily basis for years to come. New design has received positive feedback from students with documents and materials being easily searchable. The website is responsive and optimized for mobile devices. Old galleries and articles are elegantly and proficiently displayed in the new structure.
