European Capital of Culture online

Maribor 2012

Maribor was selected as the European Capital of culture for the year 2012 after winning the national bidding process. The concept of the programe was based on a variety of programs, with more than 400 different projects and more than 10.000 various events. The website provided an insight into the projects and a timeline of their events, which was the most important part of the website as it also served as a important promotional tool especially since all projects were not supported to the same extent. The website was a combination of an informational portal and a project page with frequent and up to date editorial content easily assured through the Typo3 CMS. A special flagship part of the page was the LIFETOUCH programe strand, which was a media portal with creative videos and articles of prominent writers and publishers from all over Europe.
