Dag6, the journalistic joint venture of the Evangelische Omroep (EO) and the Nederlands Dagblad (ND), went live on Friday 31 March 2017. With Day6, the EO and the ND want to reach a younger target group than they do now: Christians under 45. Subscribers receive a paper weekly every Friday, in which news and background stories will be published. Subscribers also get access to content via a mobile app 24 hours a day.
The name of the platform refers to the sixth day of creation, where according to the Bible man was created. Dag6 is made by six permanent employees and external ‘contributors’ who provide insight into themes such as sport, architecture and food.
An app where you could interactively choose your favorite influencers and where the interface with a lot of sophisticated micro animations presented relevant news in a beautiful way was the result. See also the youtube video under the download link.
(In April 2018, the Nederlands Dagblad and the Evangelische Omroep (EO) decided to discontinue the Dag6 app for smartphones and the biweekly paper magazine.)
