We recently collaborated with the Minneapolis College of Art and Design (MCAD) to migrate and redesign their website, mcad.edu.

The MCAD website was built on the soon-to-be unsupported Drupal 7 platform. The transition to Drupal 9 was an opportunity to showcase their newly defined brand online, create an experience tailored to their audiences, and enable lead generation for prospective students.

Our solution

Our user-centered approach to the site prioritizes key audiences and delivers an exceptional, mobile responsive experience. The site features stunning and innovative visual design that celebrates digital accessibility. And, increased content editing capabilities enable MCAD to communicate with their audiences in engaging ways. Finally, migrating to a modern and up-to-date platform ensures that MCAD will maintain a functional site that can scale to their needs. All in all, the result of our engagement is a beautiful, accessible, and performant site that serves MCAD’s audiences and their team.

Are you still using Drupal 7?

End-of-life is scheduled for November 2022. It’s time to start planning your migration — we can help.
