The Challenge

Qualyst came to us as they were transitioning from a services company to a services and products company. They needed a website that reflected that change and that would appeal to a variety of specific markets. Additionally, the existing website had become dated and didn't display correctly on mobile devices.

The Solution

We started by working closely with Qualyst during the design phase to ensure a clean, attractive, and relevant design was produced for their audience. As part of keeping their target segments in mind, we recruited a marketer with a track record of collaborating with scientists and creative professionals to use words, images, videos, and animation to convey complex scientific ideas. With the planning and design complete, we were able to move forward into production of a website to help Qualyst take the next step in their marketing goals.

The Challenge

After DesignHammer had completed a website redesign project for RTI-HS, they wanted to move their website off-site in order to have control over the development and feature release process. The original website was developed and hosted in-house using ColdFusion technology.

The Solution

DesignHammer created a new website using the Drupal 7 CMS. We set up functionality to pull publications and research team data from their third-party CRM Vision. We use continuous integration to pull XML files from RTI and the database from the RTI-HS production website and run content tests on a staging instance of the website. These tests ensure that migrated data is consistent before it reaches the production server. This system has allowed us to make changes constantly while ensuring that the data on their website is always presented accurately.

The Challenge

The previous website was built on Drupal 6, which hit end of life February of 2016. This meant the community no longer provided support for security updates. Additional, the website was built with a very rigid content entry workflow. This was a constant uphill battle which forced them to come up with inefficient workarounds for entering content. SAMSI also wanted to refresh their design to be cleaner and have simpler and more modern look.

The Solution

We redesigned the SAMSI website and successfully migrated their Drupal 6 content to a new WordPress CMS. In the process we removed many of the content editing restrictions that the previous site had in favor of a more free-form workflow. We also provided a comprehensive design style guide to help content editors maintain the site's professional look and feel.

The Challenge

DesignHammer designed and developed a new website for NISS in August of 2009 built on Drupal 6. The new content management system allowed individuals at the organization to more easily modify content on their website without the assistance of a website developer. At the time, Drupal 6 was in the early stages of its release cycle. Seven years later, Drupal 6 had reached its end of life. During that time, the website had served NISS very well. However, with official support for the platform being discontinued, it was time to migrate the existing data to Drupal 7 and redesign the theme for a more modern look and feel.

The goal of this website redesign was to put NISS.org on a secure, supported system and to help build their business and customer base by acquiring new clients (academia, industry, and government), cultivating relationships with affiliates and postdocs, and giving their current staff the tools needed to facilitate the above.

The Solution

DesignHammer developed a new Drupal 7 website for NISS, built on supported technology which will function well for a years to come. This also allows DesignHammer to continue adding new functionality and improving existing features over time. The existing data from Drupal 6 was migrated over to Drupal 7 using the Migrate module's ability to map old content types and fields to new Drupal 7 content types and fields.

About The Project

As part of its re-branding process, Research Triangle Institute changed its name to RTI International and adopted a new logo, striving to be recognized as the premier independent research institute in the world. A new web site design by DesignHammer, deployed in June 2002, was part of the re-branding process.

In 2007 RTI International asked DesignHammer to redesign their new site. With great pride the new site went live August 2008. The new design conveys the message “RTI is the world’s best resource for turning knowledge into practice through innovative, multidisciplinary research and technology development.” The site serves a diverse audience identified as clients/collaborators, policymakers, researchers, current and potential customer, potential investors, potential employees, news media and the general public.

The new site has been very well received and achieved the look and feel and functional requirements that we desired.
