A Rider University microsite has been selected as an Official Honoree for the 20th Annual Webby Awards. The distinction puts Rider in the top 20 percent of nearly 13,000 entries from 66 countries around the world. 

The microsite focuses on engaged learning at Rider, showcasing the multiple ways in which the University creates opportunities for profound learning experiences. The site highlights the opportunities and results of students participating in internships, study abroad, service learning, student/faculty collaboration, the arts and leadership development.

Plethora built this microsite from the ground up and designed its UI with jQuery, CSS, and a responsive layout.


Drupal just celebrated a major milestone - its fifteenth birthday!

The Drupal project has grown tremendously over the years and with Drupal 8 it is now 'off the island'.

We recently redesigned the Brooklyn Music School's site at, which this New York Times blog article links to. The article covers the officer's preparations for his performance. A follow-up article will soon follow.
