fellows & friends: an interactive platform for the Hertie Foundation

An easy-to-use, interactive and responsive update of the “fellows & friends“ platform


Hertie Stiftung, Hertie fellows & friends

Project description

The Hertie Foundation’s fellows & friends platform gives users access to a vast range of different contents, presented across different layers and levels: While the forum’s core centres around networking opportunities, the platform’s mentoring programme and the Hertie Fellowship help users develop their own personality, plan a career or get in touch with experts from a wide range of industries and professions.

The new fellows & friends pages excel at clarity, facilitating quick and easy access to media information as well as a large spectrum of user interaction options.

Due to the forum contents’ complexity, Mediatis faced an equally complex and comprehensive design challenge: giving users access to image galleries, videos, downloads, and mailing list options as well as wide-ranging information on different programmes and events. Depending on browser window size, this meant automatic adjustment of images, reordering of contents and opening or closing navigation menus – without deviating from the platform’s clear-cut and unified look & feel.

The resulting responsive design meets all of these technical challenges while reflecting the Hertie Foundation’s new CI. In close collaboration with the responsible technical agency, we successfully realised this multi-faceted project – with an equally multi-faceted, interdisciplinary team.
