As a state university with church sponsorship, the KU Eichstädt-Ingolstadt is the first and only Catholic university in Germany. As a cosmopolitan educational institution, it is open for students of all religions and worldviews.
Shaped by a Christian self-image, the university is focused on the person and to the cause of the truth. The international campus culture offers the scientists and young academics ideal conditions in an almost familiar environment. This makes the university stand out from the masses of many "large universities".
Despite the variety of information and extensive content, always ensuring orientation for the visitor - this was the aim of the innovative navigation concept for the KU's new website. Like a timetable, the navigation guides the user through the content of the page and thus shows him possible “destination stations” on the chosen navigation route. At the same time, the navigation takes on the function of a breadcrumb trail, which always documents the route already covered within the website and allows targeted jumping back in the navigation path.
The design of the website is not an end in itself. It starts with the concise tile design, which is specifically geared towards the best possible use on mobile devices. The large-format tile elements guide the target groups directly to the content that is relevant to them. The shape of the elements also defines their function: Round shapes guide the visitor to further information in contrast to angular shapes that are used to display content. Generous white space makes pages appear tidy and clear. Numerous structural elements allow the editor to structure even the most complex content.
