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.
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.
