Rider University

Rider University approached Plethora Design with a need to migrate their Drupal 6 site of some 10,000+ pages to Drupal 7. They had laid some of the groundwork already, having done some wireframes and mockups internally. They had a clear vision of a site that would be far more visual and intuitive. This helped keep the design process focused and effective.

Management Skills Training

FHI 360 required a multilingual site to showcase work by participants in a separate online learning community that we built with Moodle. The site was built in English, Arabic, French, Farsi and Spanish. We built a lengthy application form and user registration form - all multilingual. It features a document library and a few other users-only areas.

Farsi Management Training

FHI 360 required an e-learning site to train young aspiring management professionals and business majors throughout the Middle East. This is a placeholder site put in place until the e-learning site is complete. We built a simple contact form and a lengthy application form - all in Farsi. The Persian text runs right to left and as such we designed our template around that.

Brooklyn Prospect Charter School

After being referred to us by another NY charter school, we set to work upgrading Brooklyn Prospect's Drupal site to the latest version and correcting a number of issues. Our focus then shifted to improving the design and functionality, so that the school now has a list of teachers, who each have their own profile which students can watch for announcements and additional course materials. The improved site also has an events calendar which sends a tweet to Twitter each time a new event is added.

Aristotle Foundation

The Aristotle Foundation is a Dutch organization seeking to bring Classical education back in the classrooms. When they approached us they had a site up and running, but it needed some work. It uses a custom-built content management system, for which we altered the template file to support printing the pages. We also made the front page more engaging with the use of Flash for the textual introduction, and the content pages were improved by adding carefully selected stock photos.
