Success story: Lautstark JRK

STRAIGHTVISIONS worked closely with Sherpa Design to transform an outstanding screen design into a functional WordPress website. The collaboration between the two companies resulted in a seamless and visually appealing web presence.


The project “LAUTSTARK”, an initiative of the JRK of the DRK, is committed to promoting youth participation and children’s rights. The main goal of this project is to inform and empower children and young people on how to actively participate in society and exercise their rights. While “LAUTSTARK” focuses primarily on young people, it also emphasizes the importance of society as a whole getting involved in providing more opportunities and possibilities for the youngest.


A screen design created by Sherpa Design was to be implemented as a WordPress website. In addition to an optimal page speed, the aim was easy editorial editing.


Thanks to an optimal style guide from Sherpa Design, structure, recurring and related elements were easy to identify. The result is an easy-to-maintain state-of-the-art website with PageSpeed 100 without compromise.

Ideal technology mix

As requirements change, new features are easy to implement. Our fully modular system uses the strengths of WordPress and combines maximum performance with infinite flexibility.

PageSpeed 100

Websites developed by us achieve a PageSpeed 100 by default – and if not, the reasons are clearly stated. In the JRK Lautstark campaign, customer requirements could be implemented without compromising PageSpeed.

WordPress Block & Site Editor

Thanks to the brand new WordPress site editor, all elements of the website can be edited, positioned and new ones added. The combination possibilities are endless. Blocks individually developed for the customer round off the range of functions. Visually, the display in the editor is very close to the frontend view to allow easy editing. Developers are thus hardly needed for later editing of the templates – a big step towards reducing the requirements and complexity of editing websites.

The cooperation with straightvisions was based on partnership, reliability and absolutely satisfactory from start to finish. Due to close coordination and fast communication channels and Matthias’ emphatic nature, the whole process was very uncomplicated. We are happy!
