We worked together with AZ Medien Digital to overhaul their online offerings and conceptualize new, user-centric formats, like the Card Builder–a simple CMS that allows editors to easily build stories with cards. The essential feature of the new website is a reworked platform for hyperlocal, user-generated content. This forms a significant cornerstone of the network’s local news reporting, which comprises eight regional newspapers.

Alongside the work on the website, the CMS workflow was re-conceptualized in a collaborative process with the editors. The resulting architecture represents a radical system restructure designed to meet changing needs, and the newly created frontend component library ensures all team members and external partners have a common basis to work from.

Following the relaunch, visits increased from 5.2 to 6.5 million.
