Balluff wins German Design Award
The new Balluff homepage has been showing off its new design since the beginning of the year, and also won over the jury of the German Design Award. "We are glad that our web presence has been so well received and that we have been recognized for it," says Jakob Böhringer, Web team leader at Balluff. The digital agency LINKS DER ISAR designed and implemented a new internet presence with more photos, less text and an integrated webshop. The highlight of the site is the product area, which has been completely restructured with a comprehensive representation of key and focus industries including application examples. "The basic idea of the relaunch was a greater emphasis on offering easier discovery within the new product finder," notes Böhringer.
The German Design Award recognizes innovative products and projects, their creators and designers who are groundbreaking in the German and international design landscape.
