Founded in 2013, Citations Antiques is a cultural site whose purpose is the publication of quotes from ancient writers. Based on its success, we took action in March 2016 to plan a second version.

The project was to recreate the site from scratch. So we started by modernizing the famous logo mixing antique laurel wreath and quotation marks. Then, we have developed a modern design with which the ubiquitous text will be put forward without seeming “oppressive”.

We also rejected the idea of a CMS and we relied on the Symfony framework to develop a flexible site on which it would be possible to add major features at any time.

Since then, site traffic has tripled and we are adding new features frequently.
