The Drupal 7 website we developed for Magcam seven years ago was in need of a refresh. Magcam is a high tech company offering a unique Magnetic Field Camera (Magcam) measurement system. Calibrate has been successful in building a high tech website for this high tech company.
We decided to make a fresh start with Drupal 9 and our Calibrate install profile. This profile contains a standard set of components that can be adapted and extended to suit the client's needs and was perfect for this assignment.
We made the estimate for the new site based on the old site and a single design of the homepage. This allowed us to give the client an initial budget. In the meantime, we kept in mind additional functionalities, which we would build as soon as new designs came in.
The design of the homepage was created by an external party. What we immediately noticed was that it looked a bit like an offline print design. By this we mean that the design only worked for a fixed format. That doesn't exactly make it suitable for the different screens and browsers in our digital world. Just think of all the sizes of laptop screens and smartphones.
It's up to us to make sure the design always looks great, whether you have an iPhone with Safari or surfing with Chrome on a laptop.
