A dynamic local community

OPP is one out of four newspapers participating in a project called “Dynamic local communities”, organized through “Landslaget for lokalaviser”. The aim of the project is to create journalism that brings the local community closer through dialogue and creative solutions.

With this in mind along with a general need to overhaul digitally, Dekode helped OPP with a concept that is innovative, responsive and made on WordPress.

New Services

To us it was important to come up with new ideas on how a local newspaper can position itself as an important community participant, along with providing new and attractive services for the users, that can create more traffic and new ways of generating revenue. The solution enables everything you would expect from a modern online newspaper. In addition to this we have created serveral different services to get the reader involved.
