Gewerbemuseum Winterthur

At the heart of Winterthur's old town, the Gewerbemuseum Winterthur stages exhibitions that intersect between design, art and everyday culture. The gallery shows the familiar in an unfamiliar way, asks relevant questions, presents surprising and sensual insights into current topics and temporal phenomena and offers broad access to the world of materials.

How Neos made the difference

The Gewerbemuseum Winterthur's current website is to be replaced by a modern open-source solution. Exhibitions and events in the museum need to be presented prominently and attractively. The new website appeals to all target groups - from the interested specialist audience to families, schools and media professionals. For the Gewerbemuseum Winterthur, ongoing GmbH is developing a website based on Neos CMS together with Crafft.

The highlight of the website is the integrated events calendar. The challenge here was to combine exhibitions lasting several months and events with precise dates in an attractively designed timeline. At the same time, media representatives will find comprehensive documentation on the individual exhibitions on the website.

A clear list in the Neos backend makes it easier to manage events. 
The list can be filtered, searched and sorted. 

Content modeling

Thanks to the versatile content repository, data can be stored in Neos in a clean and structured manner, without having to set up your own database structures. The events calendar is a good way of demonstrating how complex structures can be easily implemented with Neos on-board tools. An exhibition can contain several events. Each event is linked to one or more target groups. The editor can easily create these links independently in Neos using intelligent dropdowns.

Every event can be linked to another event as well as its corresponding target groups

Neos permits very flexible design of the displayed events calendar - here the developer has access to the same data structure and can quickly create any output variants.

One Neos - many Websites

The website was developed so as to enable the website of the Uhrenmuseums Winterthur, which is affiliated to the Gewerbemuseum Winterthur, to also be displayed with the same CMS instance. For the customer, two websites with independent content and design can be managed from one central interface.

„Thanks to the flexible modular system, our web content manager can respond to the different communication content in harmony with the situation. We are also pleased about the scope that is available for individual design, yet with automated processes.“
