Drupal

Drupal is an open source content management system (CMS) that we use as a base for many of our web design projects. It allows us to give you top quality, secure websites (the Whitehouse runs Drupal) without the price tag associated with securing a custom site. Drupal website development is our world, our specialty and our passion.

Drupal developers

As Drupal web development specialists we immerse ourselves in the open source content management system and are constantly developing our Drupal programming skill set. Programming and developing in Drupal CMS is a dynamic process. As new versions of Drupal emerge, so too do new methods of doing the same thing. So a Drupal developer today does not share the same skill set as one 6 years ago. We have been programming nothing but Drupal since 2007 and have been through all versions since Drupal 4 to the current Drupal 7, and the recently arrived Drupal 8.

Contributed Drupal modules written by people much like ourselves and shared with the world are extensions to Drupal websites which give them added functionality, and are the reason for Drupal's (and for that matter Joomla! And WordPress') tremendous success. They allow developers the world over to very quickly and cheaply bring web solutions to their clients, and we are no exception to that. These modules evolve along with Drupal versions and working with them evolves too. As a result we place a lot of importance on research and constant study.

Study also extends to our core business:

Custom Drupal modules

Building bespoke Drupal modules and customizing Drupal modules for websites is the heart of Axis' business. Though we try to use contributed modules as much as possible to provide cheaper websites to our clients without compromising quality - Drupal modules are written by communities of developers and as such are in fact very good software - there are times when contributed modules written by other developers, as brilliant as they are, are just too generic to answer a client's website software needs. We tailor-make additions to websites in these circumstances, which answer your exact needs efficiently and securely. Every part of our development comes down to Drupal module development.

Some custom Drupal modules that we have created for clients include:

  • Enterprise resource planning (ERP)
  • Customer relationship management (CRM)
  • e-Commerce, online stores,
  • Quote engines
  • Comparison websites
  • Web showrooms
  • Corporate social networks
  • Photo galleries and lightrooms

Custom Drupal Theming

Drupal website design is of course an integral part of any Drupal website. Unlike many generic products, Drupal’s design does not preclude any site’s look and feel. The theming engines are designed in such a way that any brand and any style can be accommodated under a decent Drupal themer.

At Axis, we have many years of HTML, CSS and Javascript/jQuery knowledge behind us and have been designing websites for 15 years. On top of this experience we are continually honing our skills and updating our Drupal website front-end knowledge.
