We Do Drupal Right

  • Our team is comprised of true Drupal experts, with team members who've been around since the early days of Drupal, including our CEO.

  • We're active Drupal community participants and Drupal Association members – check out our company page on Drupal.org.

  • We’re regular attendees at DrupalCons and other national and international conferences, as well as being active locally to help organize, sponsor and promote events and camps.

 

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.

 

A Few of Our Highly Successful Drupal Projects

 

Database-intensive website for Plant Information Online

Origin Eight developed this site to leverage the full capacity of multiple databases to combine information and present a powerful, yet easy-to-use search experience.

About Plantinfo

Plant Information Online offers a collection of databases of interest to plant and gardening enthusiasts and students, as well as professional botanists, horticulturists, and researchers. Some of the databases have been available in print (various titles) since 1979 and online through paid subscription since 1997. The whole site is now available free to the general public.

The project included a redesign of information architecture that centralized all the company's brands and services together seamlessly into one site.

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.

Drupal 8 eCommerce Site: Paddle Manufacturer

Origin Eight developed two visually appealing Drupal 8 websites for a canoe and kayak paddle manufacturer's brands: bendingbranches.com, featured here, and aquabound.com. Both sites were built for an eCommerce phase-in. Our work included a fully-responsive design, mega menu implementation, integration of an external dealer locator, and content migration from a legacy site. Web traffic from organic search jumped significantly with the launch of the new site.
