Austrian Museum of Folk Life and Folk Art

Website Relaunch

The Austrian Museum of Folk Life and Folk Art was founded in 1895 by Michael Haberlandt and Wilhelm Hein and since then has occupied an important place among museums of European culture. The museum now has an innovative, state-of-the-art web presence thanks to the relaunch of its website by checkpointmedia and Peach Kommunikationsagentur GmbH (Design).
As prime contractor, checkpointmedia was responsible for the conceptual design as well as the technical implementation of the website using Jart. The site provides a clear overview of current exhibitions thanks to an integrated calendar module. It also contains a flexible article system allowing users to select, list and sort contents according to different criteria. The innovative design has freed up more space for the large number of images, which are now the focal point of the website.
