We build most of our websites using Drupal and Wordpress. We build on a responsive grid, which allows a website to be optimized for any device's display, whether it is a traditional desktop, a laptop, a tablet or a mobile phone. Most importantly, Drupal and Wordpress provide virtually limitless potential for creativity and growth. Both are open-source systems and feature community-generated modules and plug-ins that allow you to expand your site as your business or organization grows — whether you want a quick upgrade or slow roll-out — without draining resources. Our first independent web project, IWantMyRocky.com, a long-gone effort by former staffers at the Rocky Mountain News to save the paper, was built literally overnight using Wordpress.
For organizations or businesses that expect to grow but don't yet know the bounds of that growth, Drupal is a great fit. Along with numerous add-ons, flexibility and configurability, Drupal is especially useful for organizing and publishing all manner of data. We work primarily in Drupal 7 but have built and continue to manage several websites in version 6. We have used Drupal to build sites of a wide variety of functions, including news, advocacy and e-commerce.
We have used Wordpress for sites ranging in size from the small, personal blog to robust advocacy groups managing large memberships, such as Great Education Colorado. Like Drupal, the add-on potential is immense, and Wordpress is a viable and powerful solution to many website needs. In particular, Wordpress's easy-to-learn user interface, accessible even for the greenest of web novices, makes it a perfect choice for small startups seeking a professional, polished web presence with limited resources.
