To create a beautiful and user friendly online presence for the city of Esch-sur-Alzette and make the site easier to use for visitors and local residents.
Luxembourg’s second biggest city, Esch-sur-Alzette, needed to replace its 10 year old website. Together with the public relations and IT teams we worked on an entire redesign for the site and preparing a new technical structure for future releases of other websites from the municipality of Esch.
Scope of work
- Easy to navigate for every target group.
- A new design based on the current visual identity
- A WordPress multisite used for all future projects.
