We are excited to announce we have been working with Ringier to re-launch the websites of their magazines Schweizer Illustrierte and SI Style. The Schweizer Illustrierte is Switzerland’s biggest and most popular people magazine. SI Style is Switzerland’s biggest celebrity and fashion magazine. For the first time, both magazines joined forces to establish THE reference for Stars and Style in Switzerland. One URL and one medium, but two flavours complimenting Stars and Style accordingly.
Together with Ringier’s digital editorial team and Unic (back end development) we worked in an agile scrum process, which made it possible for creating concept, design and development in only three months time.
Following a mobile first approach we did not only create a fully responsive website. As one of only a few magazine websites we took monetisation as an opportunity and integrated responsive advertising.
Stay tuned for the full case study and further blogposts on how we crafted the details of the experience.
Team: Christian Hanke (Creative Direction), Harry Keller (Frontend Development), Meral Hirsch (Interaction Design), Michael Börner (Account Director) — and, last but not least, our beloved former colleagues Sven Ellingen and Sarah Lincoln.
