A website for the Lions' Den

The Bergische Handball-Club 06, also known as Bergische Löwen, are an ambitious handball club. 2017 we led them to the digital top.

With their new website www.bhc06.de, the BHC features state of the art technology and design. Moreover, they offer their fans an improved experience with a sleek navigation and easy click paths. We delivered a strategy, designed and built the complete web site and left no pixel unturned.

We started with an analysis of the existing online and offline presences and created a comprehensive list of requirements with technical, functional and creative goals. One wish was to move the team into the visual and informative centre of the website. Another goal was the unification of fonts used in web and print. And of course, the new website should offer a good mobile experience. Based on wire frames and click dummies, the BHC was able to see and evaluate our preliminary work.

Fit for the bundesliga

The result of the multi-month relaunch process is a new website that is on par with big sports portals. www.bhc06.de welcomes the users with strong imagery, match and club news. A teaser announces the next match day of the top team - and tickets can be ordered directly online.

In the "team" section, all teams are presented with their current position in the league, the next matches, and statistics. Fans receive background information about coaches, squad, and officials team as well as fan clubs and partners. The website has been defined visually for all devices so that the experience is equally fun on smartphone, tablet, and desktop.
„With the new website we got a modern interface between club, teams, and our various target audiences. Moreover, we managed to unify our appearance in web and print. We are completely satisfied with the technical, design and strategy work of netzkern.“
Philipp Tychy, Manager BHC
