One Shoe | 14 okt 2014
One Shoe designed and developed the new website for the Student Housing Foundation (SSH). SSH continues to grow and now offers more than 19,000 rooms and homes in the region of Utrecht, Amersfoort, Maastricht, Tilburg, Rotterdam, Zwolle and Groningen, The Netherlands. It's time for a new website with a fresh design that lasts through years.
User Experience & Webdesign
From an interaction design (wireframes and click models based on Axure) we first realized a functional design. The graphic design of the website - the webdesign - is based on this. We developed the webdesign in close collaboration with the designer of the SSH style. The colored dolls that are so recognizable for SSH are processed at various places in the website.
We sought a clear and intuitive visual communication. Thus, the "how it works"-section is constructed as a chronological narrative. In addition, the content is multilingual since a large number of international students will visit the website.
The new website of SSH will be maintained by One Shoe on the basis of a service contract with updates of the Drupal 7 framework. The Drupal 7 updates keep the core and modules up-to-date. SSH is now assured of a stable and reliable website.
