Case Study: New Drupal 8 website for Earthmind
Steve Allen

Adaptive are delighted to have recently launched a new Drupal 8 website for international conservation organisation, Earthmind.

Earthmind work to recognise and encourage voluntary conservation commitments in the areas where we live and work around the world.

As well as providing a wealth of resources and insight, the French-based organisation also host regular events and work closely with other organisations to achieve their aims.

The new Drupal 8 website pulls together content and information from a number of separate old Wordpress sites that Earthmind previously ran. New functionality includes an extensive library of documents and resources, all searchable and filterable using Drupal’s core Views functionality along with the Better Exposed Filters module.

Similarly, lists of past and future events can also be browsed and searched along with the organisation’s directory of Verified Conservation Areas around the world.

The site’s design was created by Adaptive and built as a custom Bootstrap-based theme to be fully responsive across all devices and screen sizes.

The Adaptive team have worked closely with Earthmind Executive Director, Frank Vorhies, on the project. Speaking on the launch day of the website, Frank said “I just want to say a big THANK YOU to you and the team for making my day! Our new website really looks fabulous. You guys have done a really great job!”

Frank later commented: "We chose Adaptive to help us build a completely new website for our NGO not only because their quote was competitive but because their responsiveness to our needs was outstanding – even before we signed the contract.

"Once the contract was signed and we got going, we worked interactively step-by-step to build the website addressing issues continuously along the way. The Adaptive team was always at the other end of an email or a call ready to deal with any questions or issues as they came up.

"Importantly, they were always professional, courteous and indeed patient in their relationship with a client who knew a bit about building a website but not nearly enough to do a proper job of it.

"We are looking forward to ongoing collaboration with Adaptive as our website needs evolve."
