One of the most popular gossip blogs for the pre-teen set, oceanUP brings you all the latest news on Miley Cyrus, the Jonas Brothers, and other stars from hit shows on Disney, Nickelodeon and elsewhere. Beginning life as a Wordpress blog, then transitioning to Moveable Type, oceanUP recently decided to step up to an industrial-strength Drupal installation.
Five Stars Creative is the video production company of award-winning photographer Matt McColl. When the company needed a dynamic CMS to give them complete control over their growing collection of high-quality FLV files, Axis CMS was the answer. The Axis database was modified to store video information, and some AJAX tricks were used to create the dynamic goodness of the "Screening Room" pages.
In 2009 an upgrade and expansion was required for the flagship publication of Portovert LLC, creators of Portovert.com (praised as "The Number 1 Green Wedding Site" by Martha Stewart Weddings). This Drupal-based Green Wedding site now includes a tagged, searchable Shopping section and a popular Green Wedding Guide, in addition to the feature articles and photogalleries of its predecessor.
A complex and evolving magazine with a dedicated community site, Asiance Magazine is a good example of a highly customized Drupal theme. In migrating the site from Drupal 4 to Drupal 5, we faced a number of challenges due to lack of support for discontinued modules. Many of the site's features required custom-coding to retain compatibility with legacy data structures. Design and Flash programming by Jondela Design.
The portfolio/presence site of the architectural engineering firm StructuralFocus takes advantage of the Axis CMS system and pushes it to its limits. The site features a number of dynamic animated effects using AJAX and the Prototype library, as well as a "gallery" feature which is a modified version of Shadowbox. Design and Art by Ben Thompson of Studiofluid.
SR3 Solutions is a specialty DVD Packaging company in North Hollywood, California. Their new website, designed by Paul Chamberlain of CerebralItch, is an interactive portfolio powered by our Axis CMS system.
VivaGreen was a brainchild of Pivotal Ventures Inc. This highly dynamic site featured a variety of advanced Drupal features, including a complex taxonomical structure, ad-hoc user groups, tag clouds, and a customized tabular approach to the "CCK Address" module allowing vendors to be sorted by city, state/province, country, zip/postal code or name. The company was unfortunately unable to secure a new round of funding, and the site was taken offline in 2010.
Newbury Greens is an online artists community, personal artists gallery and exhibition hall for digital representations of physical artworks. Using a hybrid platform consisting of Drupal (for taxonomy and community features) and X-Cart (for e-commerce features), we were able to quickly put together a seamless user experience allowing art collectors to interact directly with each other, and with the artists whose work they are following.
