Working with us

We love Drupal

With Drupal being our preferred CMS platform, it's not surprising that our developers are experts on the platform. But it's also worth pointing out that our non-development staff – account managers, directors, project managers and marketing staff – understand Drupal and how to get the best out of the platform. This really helps when you have a single point of contact to consult on a range of development and marketing projects.

Communications and meetings

To integrate with your team efficiently and effectively, we can use Slack, Skype, Trello, Jira and, of course, email. In short, we'll use whatever tools aid communication and help project delivery.

There are times when nothing beats a face-to-face meeting, so we take the time to make sure we meet with you regularly. This is why we focus on clients located in the South of England.

Our technical stack

For the majority of projects we work on Macs, use PHP Storm, Docker and Git. We host both on Amazon AWS and Acquia.

Drupal development process

We’ve been developing websites since 2000 and Drupal websites since 2012. In that time, we’ve established a development process that's specifically tailored to Drupal projects.

Phase 1: Requirements

Defining the project scope is the critical first step in all our Drupal projects. This typically involves discussing and documenting the following:

  • Project constraints, timelines and budgets
  • Business process and functional requirements
  • Creative requirements
  • Technical and integration requirements
  • Migration requirements
  • Hosting, performance, security requirements
  • Ongoing support and maintenance
  • Requirements that need to be considered for future phases

Phase 2: Planning

Once the requirements are agreed, the second phase involves conducting a detailed Drupal planning exercise to map requirements to platform features and functions, and to ascertain the level of configuration, custom development, module planning and migration work required.

During the planning phase, we consider the following factors:

Site-wide features

  • Customer and competitor landscape
  • Legal and regulatory considerations 
  • Drupal and module considerations
  • Taxonomy, content types and views planning 
  • Content management, blog/news planning
  • Onsite search
  • Menu (mega nav, fly out, off canvass etc.)
  • Responsive requirements and breakpoints

Marketing and promotion

  • Directional marketing landing pages
  • SEO considerations (duplicate content, meta information, schema, back links, sitemap, robots.txt, Search Console planning, 301 redirects etc.)
  • Analytics, tagging and tracking

Creative and UX 

  • Branding
  • Wireframes and prototypes
  • Front end theme design
  • Form elements
  • Photography and video
  • Copy


  • Development, Staging/QA and production environments
  • URL structure
  • Module planning
  • Front end theme (custom developed or purchased theme)
  • Back end custom development plan
  • API/Integration development plan for third party systems
  • DevOps approach
  • Domain name management
  • Hosting, performance, caching strategy, CDN and security

Migration strategy

  • Content
  • Media

Phase 3: Development

With the pre-development activities completed, the development processes becomes more routine and straightforward. Activities in this phase centre around the following distinct work streams:

  • Configuration
  • Front end development
  • Back end development 
  • API/integrations
  • Testing (functional, performance, browser, user acceptance)

Phase 4: Deployment

To ensure your Drupal site works and runs on a scalable, stable and secure hosting environment, we offer these services:

  • Acquia or Amazon AWS setup and configuration
  • Caching and CDN setup
  • Domain name management
  • Performance monitoring
  • Security and penetration testing
  • Post deployment support

Deploying a new Drupal website is a considered phase and preserving existing SEO equity is often a key factor. This is why our deployment processes ensure SEO is part of  the planning process.
