3... 2... 1... Happy New Year!
2012 is nearly here. To bring in the new year, we are launching a completely renovated website, built in Drupal 7, to showcase the latest design trends and development techniques that we have been promoting. Not to mention, we were growing jealous of all of the great sites we have been busy producing and shipping out the door, er, portal... inter-tube? So anyways... out with the old, in with the new.
One main focus for this new site was on rebranding ourselves to reflect the core values that we strive to achieve in web development. Specifically, we wanted a minimal non-intrusive interface works mostly as a backdrop to allow the designs that we build to really shine though. We are ever mindful to make sure the development process never steps on the toes of the original design intent, and with that in mind, our new site is themed in soft neutral colors, subtle greys, and with plenty of open space. The goal is to really make the portfolio images pop and dominate the page, letting our work speak for us.
We also added this new blog section in order to offer a few new services. First, we can now start creating some tutorial reference materials that can be viewed by our customers whenever they need to refer to it. As new issues come up, we can publish tutorial blog posts that will add to the growing collection of step by step answers to frequently asked questions. Second, we are going to start offering public coding solutions to the various unique development problems that we run across. As frequent "googlers" of "how to make 'x' work in 'y'", it's time we started giving back to the community so others won't need to re-invent a wheel that we just perfected.
There are plenty of other new improvements to the site, and there are sure to be many more in the coming months. We hope you enjoy your experience with the new site, and don't forget... have a great new year!
Hello, I really like the new design. It gives kind of soothness to the eyes. i liked the profile of yours that you are working with all the new technologies. But would you please tell me the benifits of one on other one? Like why should I make my site in html or in Durpal? Over all I appreciate your work. And I can write only one of the nice irish sayings - May the road rise up to meet you, may the wind be ever at your back. May the sun shine warm upon your face and the rain fall softly on your fields. And until we meet again, May God hold you in the hollow of his hand.
@Chinmay: Thank you for your kind words. With regard to the technologies and trying to determine when to use one instead of another, there is not a simple answer. Each technology offers specific advantages in certain areas, and limitations in others. For example building a new site in by hand using HTML is fast and cheap if the website is small, but you sacrifice flexibility and ease of use for non-technical administrators. Large sites that require constant updating will be much easier to maintain when built in a CMS (like Drupal), but this also comes with a larger price tag. Each website needs to be carefully considered for how it will grow and evolve in order to make an informed decision on which technologies are most appropriate.
