Peikestkken is a student newspaper at the Volda University College. Their organisation is based on volunteer work and they publish 6 editions every year.
Their graphic profile went through a total rebuild in 2011, and this redesigned website is a part of that new profile. The idea for the website was to keep the layout clean and divide the different sections with colours in conjunction with the graphic style of the printed paper. This was done to keep consistency and reach the new end goal; to build a stronger brand name amongst the students and faculty.
Letting users read the printed paper online or download the PDF version was also a priority that was seen as an important functionality for the redesigned website.
The CMS system WordPress was utilized to have editors add their own articles with relative little training. The goal was for non technical writers with little experience to be able to publish articles without requiring assistance.
