Six years ago, we set out to create a magazine. What started as an idea to create a platform for photos and articles on typography and design, travel and life finally found it’s destination: this is Pompodium, an ensemble for Symphony.

After months spent thinking, talking, brainstorming, scribbling, designing, pushing pixels, writing code, being overtaken with new ideas and starting all over again for about three times, the nearly finished website sat untouched for one year. Patiently awaiting its future destiny, the mention of the first Symposium 2010 in London finally caused an epiphany to release Pompodium as a magazine-style ensemble for this occasion. Hooray!

Today, three years after its first release, we finally updated Pompodium to the latest Symphony version, everything is freshened up and ready to play: we simplified the backend structure, made the layout adapt to the screen responsively and made use of modern technology. Using SVG images where needed and webfonts all over, this ensemble is ready for retina displays as well.

Pompodium is available on Github and can be evaluated for free. As soon as you want to use Pompodium in production, you must purchase a licence. A licence is 25 € (excluding taxes) and valid for a single website. Send us an email for inquiries or further questions!
