We collaborated with our partner Balance Interactive on this project. Evolving Web handled the Drupal development, training, and deployment, which Balance provided the design and handled the client communications.

Challenge:

  • Full redesign, content overhaul, and relaunch of the website on a short timeframe
  • Update the content architecture to improve the user experience
  • Incorporate content from multiple legacy websites
  • Integrate the external access control platform and paid membership system with Drupal
  • Give members access to private content

Solution:

  • Content strategy and website construction
  • Drupal 8 website with minimal custom module development 
  • Creation of a new contributed module: Context Active Trail
  • Custom responsive theme to implement the new design and branding
  • Theme based on the Bootstrap framework, to provide flexibility going forward

Results:

  • The CRN has a beautiful new site on top of a rock-solid Drupal 8 foundation
  • The external membership system integrates its own access controls, so accounts don't have to be updated manually in Drupal
  • The content management interface is intuitive, contextual, and flexible, so site administrators can easily update landing pages
  • Navigation is user-friendly and accessible
