App to discover literature in Västerbotten

The name "härlitt", alludes to the literature here, where I am. I start from my own position and, with the help of my mobile phone, find myself in the middle of the literature. What stories have taken place right here, where I am? What events and occurrences in an author's life are I close to? härlitt makes literature and authorship in Västerbotten visible by linking local authorship to physical places where the user can take part in different routes and literary tracks. härlitt shows literary Västerbotten in a completely new way - through descriptions of literary places, portraits of authorship emerge. In addition to author presentations and literary locations, härlitt also features previously unpublished works, literary tracks, placed at specific locations by authors. A literary track is locked until I am in the same place it was left, only then can I read it and often also listen to an author's reading.

"We are very pleased and happy to have THNX on board to manage and develop this site. Sometimes we think that in our role as a regional library service with a mission to promote reading and literature, we are an unusual client with unusually complicated issues and comparatively often slow processes. The whole process of härlitt is indeed a learning experience for us and THNX has over the years shown patience as well as different paths and possibilities to explore further. We are also grateful that the whole THNX team is genuinely interested in härlitt and that it will have the potential to be what we want it to be."

"The cooperation with THNX worked well right from the start and has continued on that path. They have a solution-oriented approach and are good at guiding both the client and us as partners with wise advice on how best to approach further development of the app."

this was before we at THNX started working on the app. The goal when the project started for us was to take härlitt to the next level together with Gullers Grupp and Regionbibliotek Västerbotten. A completely new design and new features were the first step to improve the experience.

A major effort has also been made to meet accessibility requirements, thereby enabling everyone to use the site. A study has been carried out and research has been done to simplify and improve the experience for all.



In a series of workshops with the client, Gullers Grupp took a fresh look at the existing app and pointed out the direction for further development. Gullers and THNX worked in three stages of development where we improved the various parts of the app together with THNX, developed new functionality focusing primarily on routes that users can follow, and updated the design and logo. After the relaunch, Gullers and THNX have continued to manage and further develop the app.

The härlitt app takes you to places of significance for authorship and literature. Authors leave traces for you in the landscape, which you unlock by visiting the places where they were left.
