TYPO3 is an open source, PHP based web content management system (CMS) that can be expanded by installing freely available Extensions. For the Academy of Media Arts a few new extensions were coded, i.e. the project archive, staff management or a strongly enhanced news area that can display events, awards and job offers as well as press releases.

The  CSS framework Blueprint provides a cross-browser consistent layout base featuring a base grid. Developing a layout on a grid leads to an harmonic, consistent optical appearance with fine-tuned font-sizes, white-spaces etc. If you are interested in an under-the-hood-glance, you can turn on the grid and see how it works.
