What we did:

  • We managed to integrate the requested marketing automation tool, but not before we fixed some bugs in the Drupal module used for this integration
  • We implemented the domain redirection requested

The Result

  • the administrative team can edit content in no time
  • users – patients volunteering to join COVID-19 clinical tests – can easily fill in a registration form with their data

What we did:

Migrated the Website from Wordpress to Drupal

And this called for a complex, multi-step process, where we implemented content and assets migration from one platform to the other.


Simplified the Content Structure

We knew that reorganizing the content architecture so that it should be simpler and easier to follow was crucial if we wanted to improve the user experience on the website.

And this was definitely no easy task, but we managed to come up with a more solid, more logical structure for this content-rich website.

One that ensures a simplified, more intuitive navigation for its visitors.


Redesigned the MechanicsHub Website

And here we played with color contrasts: black and yellow.

Black was already the dominant color on the existing site and we added splashes of bright yellow, the same hue that you can find in their logo, to:

  • reinforce their brand identity aesthetically
  • draw attention to specific pieces of content on the website, leveraging this powerful contrast, and better guide the visitors to the key sections there

Overall, besides this strategic use of color contrast, our team strived to give the site's old design a cleaner, simpler look. To bring it up to date with the latest web standards.

Implemented Responsive Web Design

Again, ensuring that this heavy (and heavily diversified) content ecosystem was easy to navigate no matter the screen size, was a real "struggle" for our web designers.

Yet, we managed to make the content interface easy to navigate and user-friendly on all devices.

Mechanics Hub has gone from a clunky, overly cluttered and somehow too distracting WordPress site, to a:
