Why Drupal?

Drupal is a very powerful open source Content Management System. Open Source means it is free and that it also has a large community of support behind it. With so many people using Drupal, it has become a flexible solution that is as big or as small as your needs require. It also means that updates for the “core” of Drupal happen regularly and are maintained by many people. This help assure that security vulnerabilities are actively patched.

What is the purpose of wire framing?

The main goal of wire framing is to create a basic blueprint of an application. It helps do the following: make sure that the application meets the expectations of you and your users, focus on content first and design second, and identify potential usability problems.

Will I see a fully mocked up design for every page of my site?

No, we generally create high-fidelity graphic mockups for 5-8 of the main pages of the site. The rest of the pages will then inherit the styles. You can expect to receive a web style guide that outlines the global look and feel of your site.

What is responsive web design? Mobile first?

It is the approach that suggests that design and development should respond to the user's behavior and environment based on screen size, platform and orientation. The practice consists of a mix of flexible grids and layouts, images and an intelligent use of CSS media queries. As the user switches from their laptop to iPad, the website should automatically switch to accommodate for resolution, image size and scripting abilities. In other words, the website should have the technology to automatically respond to the user’s preferences.

By default, will my website have an optimized mobile interface?

We highly recommend that our clients have a mobile strategy. However, it is not a feature we include by default. It takes time and expertise to make professional mobile UI's. This is a feature option that will be discussed with you in the project scope/contract phase.

Will I receive training on how to add content to my site?

Yes. For the most part adding and editing content to Drupal is easy and people learn how to administer the content on their site. Every training session is recorded with a screen capture, so you can review the training any time you’d like.

Why are newmedia developers always sprinting, and how does it help you?

At newmedia we are organized into teams consisting of one or more project managers, designers, front-end developers, and back-end developers. While working on your project we systematically plan, develop, and deliver your project on a regular (fixed) schedule. This fixed schedule is called a “sprint”. These sprints usually last either one or two weeks. The aim is to work on smaller more manageable chunks of your project.

How long has newmedia been in business?

newmedia is older than Google but younger than Amazon and has been creating websites and complex web-based software since way back in the dark ages of the internet: January of 1996. So, suffice to say, we've been around the block a few times.

After you have developed and designed our website, can we manage it ourselves easily?

Absolutely. One of the benefits of working with Drupal, Magento or other similar website platforms, is how easy it is to maintain and update your site through a Content Management System ("CMS"). With the proper training, which you receive with newmedia, you will have the tools necessary to keep your content, photography and other aspects of your site current.
