On 1 May 2016 we launched the new-look Staatliche Museen zu Berlin website. We partnered with the digital design agency "xmental TYPO3 Lösungen" to improve the existing layout, used since the last major website relaunch in December 2013. The changes mean that our site is less cluttered and more user-friendly, especially for use on handheld devices such as smartphones and tablets.
Key to the redesign were a bolder look-and-feel and a new menu navigation. Both were created with an eye on responsive design for mobile devices and BITV compliance (user accessibility). The revamped homepage smb.museum/home now provides greater direct-click access to contents via changeable teaser boxes and the calendar-function. And, in addition, we have optimized the almost 40 homepages of the individual museums, collections, and institutions and given each one of them a new, more attractive design.
