Drupal

We're pushing the boundaries.  User Experience + Drupal Experts = Sites like nothing you've seen in Drupal before.


NavigationArts Brings User Experience to Drupal Sites

We are an award winning digital agency with deep experience in Drupal. We bring User Experience and Design expertise to Drupal like no one else.

NavigationArts builds Drupal sites for our clients that:

  • Are visually rich and engaging
  • Allow for easy content management and publishing
  • Can manage multiple sites and brands through a single interface
  • Allow for responsive design
  • Integrate with third-party and proprietary systems

Our Drupal Work

NavigationArts begins our Drupal projects as it does all its projects, with a robust strategy and requirements phase, but with a focus on leveraging the modular nature of the Drupal architecture.  Our information architects and user interface designers design sites that are intuitive and engaging while driving users to their desired content more quickly and increasing conversions.  Our developers use Drupal's tools and modules and customize them for our clients' unique needs.

Some of our recent Drupal launches:

We partner with Acquia to support many of our enterprise Drupal projects.


Realize Drupal's Full Potential

A Drupal solution is only as good as the code that supports it.  Rounds of development changes along with multiple users and content editors can degrade a site over time. Our experienced consultants provide high quality impartial site evaluations.  We've developed best practices to handle complex site upgrades from Drupal 6 to Drupal 7.  Some of our services include:

  • Drupal Health Check: Uncovers site performance and page load issues
  • Technical Evaluation: Evaluates code quality and server architecture
  • Drupal 7 Upgrade: Best practices in complex Drupal 6 to Drupal 7 upgrades
  • Deployment Architecture: Versioning control and deployment processes including the set up of dev, staging, and production environments and processes
  • Drupal Mobilized: From a fully responsive site redesign for desktop, tablet and mobile to native mobile apps

Our Commitment to Open-Source

NavigationArts is a proud member of the Drupal Association as are the members of our Drupal staff.  We feel strongly about continuing to grow the Drupal community and embracing the open source ecosphere that powers it.  The NavArts' Drupal guru, R.J. Townsend, is the author of Foundation Drupal 7, one of the very first books on the latest iteration of the platform. R.J. even provides a site for fledgling developers and content editors to explore the platform themselves.  Check it out at FoundationDrupal7.com.
