Structure, promote, research, inform: the Bavarian Regulatory Authority for New Media (BLM) approves and supervises the private radio and television services in Bavaria and shapes the local media landscape with their diverse activities. The new website is meant to bring the broad spectrum of the BLM closer to different target groups and turn them into a digital experience. The website relies on striking elements and invites media users to discover more. This is how an interactive channel search was implemented that displays all private radio and TV services able to transmit to the given location. It also features a diverse offering of additional information. A comprehensive content package was also created, which conveys media competency and allows the user to experience the work of the BLM more closely. In the info center, important documents like press releases, publications, media council information, studies and downloads can be accessed. This allows the BLM website to become the central contact point for media professionals and interested parties throughout Bavaria.
The implementation of the website was done with responsive design for tablets and desktops. An adaptive smartphone version was also developed in order to guarantee the best possible experience for mobile users. Conception, design and front-end programming were all completed in-house. The technical implementation was done in close collaboration with the CMS provider CONTENTS.
