ESTEC is the main establishment of the European Space Agency. Over 100 space missions have taken their first steps along its corridors. ESA-ESTEC needed to explain, in an engaging and catching way, all its activities to a very wide and diversificate audience through a digital platform. The main challenge? Only one month to complete the task and create a successful website.
Remedia started its activity by defining a very clear action plan, able to match all the very strict deadlines and requirements. The first issue to be solved was to create one unique look and feel for all the objects and have a massive number of very good photos available for each of them. This is why, soon after the definition of the action plan, Remedia started a dedicated photo shooting to all the selected objects in parallel with the website development.
In three weeks time all the photos have been taken and processed and then included in the website, that through a very simple navigation provides very interesting stories for all the objects, enhanced by great images and videos. Tags and links are used to provide more in-depth information, connecting each object to related contents on other ESA websites and to create also an internal journey among similar objects.
A CMS based on Laravel has been developed to help ESA keep the site constantly updated with the inclusion of new objects.
The project officially started on the 4th of November 2021 and the website has been published on the 9th of December, meeting the deadlines requested by the customer.
