Talking Syria

Qisetna preserves the cultural and oral heritage of Syria, one story at a time

Qisetna aims to preserve the cultural and oral heritage of Syria by encouraging Syrian citizens and refugees to share their stories about Syria from a non-political or non-religious point of view. Qisetna challenged FLAT26 to create a new brand identity and an accessible and attractive website. A bilingual website with a user-friendly CMS.

Qisetna’s main pain point was a website that appeared to be last updated 10 years ago, but was in fact updated on a daily basis and always has fresh content. Accessibility was another issue, people wanted to read the stories on their phones.

F26 working with Qisetna Team reorganized the website content and reduced the categories to eight to make the stories easier to find. Improving the Information Architecture makes the website easier to access and use. We solved the loading time by reducing the size of images. The result was an accessible website where the users can select the font size best suited to their devices.
