Drupal 8 Case Study – Stanford Cantor Arts Center Redesign

Kristen Pol

In the Spring of 2017, Stanford’s Cantor Arts Center came to Hook 42 with a project to redesign their aging website with a shiny new Drupal 8 website that would allow the museum’s exemplary visual arts exhibits and photographic assets take center stage. What followed was a development cycle full of rigorous content strategy, front-end design, and back-end development that culminated in the newly-launched Cantor Arts Center website.

This session will expand upon our methodology and thought process in arriving at each aspect of the site’s development, including:

  • Content modeling for atomic design using the Paragraphs, UI Patterns, Display Suite, Layouts modules
  • Development of a Stanford Events Feed importer module built around Migrate and Migrate Plus
  • Content and editorial workflows for flexible and custom content

Intended Audience

Anyone interested in content strategy, migrations, and flexible components will benefit from this session.
