Why Drupal 8

  • Drupal 8 is one of the most future-proof platforms you can choose right now:

    • There is a large, worldwide supporting Drupal community that's not going away anytime soon.

    • It has an open source foundation, without any vendor lock-in.

    • It has a new release cycle architecture that allows Drupal 8 to evolve much more than its predecessor. It also prolongs the need for another major version (i.e. Drupal 9). Some have made the bold statement that there will never be a Drupal 9 – what that translates to is that, when Drupal 9 is eventually released, it will be so similar to the last version of Drupal 8 that updating to Drupal 9 will be as simple as updating between minor versions of Drupal 8. This is a huge deal.

Content Strategy & User Experience Design Project

Our team led multiple facilitation sessions to produce a content strategy foundation; an internal tool which describes the client's motivations and intentions for using their website to achieve business goals.

This practice includes a core strategy statement and a set of guiding principles detailing the approach to the website's content and user experience. With this foundation in hand, we then proceeded to craft wireframes and lay the groundwork for the website's user experience.
