Our first major Drupal CMS project was for the Workplace Safety and Insurance Board way back in 2007. Since then, we've built hundreds of content management driven websites and web applications, many of which have been large and involved websites. Along the way we've won numerous Drop awards for our work in Drupal, been recognized as a leading Drupal agency on Clutch and within the Drupal community.
Much has changed since the early days. We still love Drupal and deploy in both monolithic and headless architectures, however, we also enjoy building with Contentful and Sanity CMS, giving our clients greater flexibility and choice.
We've seen it all with Drupal and have done our fair share of 'rescue projects'. The majority of the issues we've seen have be a result of poor planning and approaching Drupal as simply a templating system to build a website. It seems obvious, but the right way to build with Drupal CMS is to recognize that Drupal is a Content Management System. As such, our first order of business is to understand and then mirror within Drupal our clients content-model and governance structures. The results are intuitive and effective content management tools for our clients.
Sometime you just need a templated content edit form, and then there are times you need more creative control. That's where our page layout builder comes in, giving you access to add, edit, drag-n-drop, and delete pre-defined UI components on pages. There's even the ability to give more or less access to the page builder based on user roles and the type of page. If you'd like a demo, reach out to an expert and we'd be happy to show you how it works.

Traditional CMS architecture combines content creation and control of the entire website experience. By design, these systems are opinionated towards how a website should be structured. There are also biases towards how a website should be constructed.
With a headless CMS architecture there are no biases towards a particular channel. There are no opinionated ways in which your CMS dictates how you should build out your front-end.
Going with a headless CMS empowers your team to provide content to any digital screen throughout the entirety of the customer journey.
Mix-and-match best of breed services together to build a unique solution that matches your customer and business needs precisely. If your tech has a reliable and well architected API, we can almost certainly integrate it.
A decoupled CMS from the point of view of a Jamstack architecture is just another API. All of the benefits of Jamstack, including its by design benefits around security and performance are preserved.
