Meadowlark Builders needed a site that reflects the artistic detail and quality they put into their homes. From custom designs to green building renovations, Meadowlark also wanted to educate visitors on the many services they offer. Working closely with the client’s design team and using Drupal as a development platform, we helped them organize their wealth of knowledge into an easy-to-navigate and aesthetically pleasing website. In addition to building out an intricate design with many sophisticated features, such as custom scrollbars and embedded fonts, we also implemented dynamic photo galleries and a categorized case study system allowing the client to showcase their work.
Eastern Michigan University's math department was already using Drupal to manage their website, but their existing design was dated, and lacked a sense of enthusiasm for the subject. EMU came to us looking for a custom theme that would shed a positive light on the subject. Switchback's design team built out a new look and feel that incorporated visuals created from mathematic algorithms as well as helped restructure the website architecture. We also implemented a blog aggregator and custom slideshow for the project.
Another project for the non-profit, Corporation for a Skilled Workforce (CSW), START Toolkit is an online blueprint to help businesses to develop regional, sector-based partnerships. Member organizations have access to a resource-rich, collaborative text. Users are connected to each other through their subscribing organization and can securely and privately comment on, bookmark, and share information within their member group. Along with developing the functionality for the website, we worked with CSW to design an easy-to-use interface for navigating the abundant information provided through START Toolkit.
Long Wing Education Consulting helps schools achieve success in all areas of education, from administration to student performance. Wanting to detail their approach to a large range educational challenges, the company chose a Drupal-based solution to organize and maintain hundreds of pages of content. To help their visitors navigate the vast amount of information, we developed a dynamicly-populated drop-down menu system. We also designed and imlpemented a custom theme including flyout menus and a rotating banner, as well as built out a multi-question job application system that provides an interface for Long Wing staff to sort and filter candidates by specific criteria.
A local creative company came to Switchback looking for development support with a Drupal website for their long-term client, ACM SIGGRAPH. With a design ready to go, Switchback was contracted to build out and configure the CMS, which included multi-language capabilities for English, Japanese, and Korean. We also implemented the custom theme designed, pixel-perfect to their specification. It features drop-down navigation, a rotating homepage banner, and event countdown clock. Our supporting role on the project freed up our client's team to better focus on client interaction and the creative tasks at hand.
It's hard to manage the disparate content of 25 individual schools and that of many more unique departments, as well as maintain consistency in both presentation and quality—administrators at Kalamazoo Public Schools know this first hand. They came to us with the lofty goal of doing just that. We worked closely with the district's technology department to build out a new, Drupal-based system that offered a smorgasbord of features: events scheduling and calendars, news articles and alerts, school and staff directories, updateable rotating text and banner, as well as various sub-sites that are accessible and/or manageable by specific user groups. And it all had to integrate with their existing systems, user accounts, and databases. Additionally, we provided website design services, giving the entire website a cohesive and easy-to-use look and feel, matching the school district's existing branding.
