Mobile first design
We used a mobile first approach, focussing on what the user will need the most, while ignoring everything else.
We based shapes and graphic elements in our design on characteristic elements found in the exterior and interior of the Dutch Parliament. It makes the design feel more unique and improves the overall experience of Binnenhof online.
Classical and modern in one font family
We selected a font family with a classic and modern type. Connecting the history of the Binnenhof with the modern digital platform.
Complementing & contrasting colors
The colour palette was inspired by the artwork in the Binnenhof, both on the walls and ceilings. The palette contains bright and dark colours in order to create contrast for web accessibility.
Who better to guide you through the Binnenhof than the people who work there? That’s why we have asked famous Dutch politicians to guide online visitors through the Parliament.
Episodes on- and off the platform
Aside from allowing you to virtually visit the Binnenhof, the website also offers the option of watching a series of episodes on political leaders who have played a crucial role in the history of the Dutch democracy. These episodes have previously been aired on national television.
