Create a site that translates the vision of UVA’s Darden School of Business that’s more manageable for Darden’s content team.
Provide a slick, efficient, and user-friendly content management interface with custom entities and Twig templates utilizing TailwindCSS.
Both average site sessions and email submissions have increased since the launch of the ultra-performant, new site experience.
Using Paragraph Modules
To make the site more manageable for Darden’s team we implemented Drupal 8 paragraph modules in a modular and flexible approach. The result is a site where content managers can easily author and publish content on the fly in a way that effectively engages students, prospective students, faculty, thought leaders and the general public
Using design provided by partner agency Viget, we created a custom Tailwind configuration that allowed us to standardize colors, fonts, and various design elements across the entire site significantly increasing efficiency in the front end build.
After designs were approved and both content and paragraph types were configured, we worked with Darden’s team to migrate content. This started with comprehensive CMS Training sessions, first with content types that required simple data entry (Faculty, Event and Alumni pages) then moving on to the more complex content types (Basic pages and Featured Topics).
