Digital agency netzkern prevails with creative excellence in designing the website of Düsseldorf Airport against ~5,000 entries.

netzkern, one of the largest full-service digital agencies in Germany, was awarded a Special Mention in the category "Excellent Communications Design / Web" at this year's German Design Award 2021 for the outstanding design implementation of the airport website DUS.com. The German Design Award aims to discover, present and honour unique design trends. Every year, it honours top-class submissions in the field of communications design that are ground-breaking in the international design landscape . The German Design Award is one of the most recognized design competitions in the world and enjoys a high reputation far beyond professional circles.

"We are thrilled to receive this special award for our expertise in design and UX. We have brought world-class elegance, usability, and technical excellence to DUS.com. The new airport website picks up on the character of Düsseldorf as a fashion metropolis through its elegant design with plenty of white space, clear image-text blocks and specially-created people photos.. This makes it unique in look-and-feel and conveys emotional warmth." explains Daniel Schulten, CEO of netzkern.

The world's best airport websites served the netzkern team as a benchmark for the new mobility portal implemented with Sitecore Experience Platform 9.1. During the realisation, the task was to reconcile global best practices with the diverse interests of different stakeholders and goals. The result convinced the jury: the overall experience from planning one’s travel and booking/reserving parking online to flight update and check-in comes from a single source.
