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.

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.
