Pitch win - HKW entrusts HENKELHIEDL with website relaunch 2023

The new logo 2023 of the HKW

We do this far too rarely. Simply spread the good news. For example, new customers. Now then: We have won the pitch for the relaunch of hkw.de.

From January 1, 2023, the rhythm, pulse and melody of the House of World Cultures will change: Then Prof. Dr. Bonaventure Soh Bejeng Ndikung will take over his role as Intendant and Chief Curator of the House.

According to a quote by Paulette Nardal, these are the first words on the splash page that went live at 0:01 a.m. on Jan. 1, 2023, to announce the new Intendanz - and with it, a new website. Real teamwork that was. We delivered the frontend and design - Studio Yukiko came up with the new logo (and corporate design), Systemantics did the implementation and Condat AG took care of the backend. And of course the HKW team was right in the middle of it all.

"Urgent repair work will be done on the building between now and the reopening. A new website announcing upcoming programming will go live in spring 2023."

In a pitch we were trusted to conceptualize, design and develop the frontend of this website.

Teamwork is also the decisive word here, but interpreted in a completely new way, even though it fits in very well with everything that the HKW has planned in the coming weeks, months and years. Unfortunately, we cannot reveal more. Only that we are full of anticipation. Just like the HKW.

On the weekend of June 2-4, 2023, Bonaventure Ndikung and his new team cordially invite all visitors* to the opening of the new program at the HKW. (...) We look forward to your visit - and to experiencing the adjustment of the step to the new rhythm together with you.

💪🏻 🎉
