National Right to Work Redux

Wow… this one has been a long time in coming…

Late last summer when David All and I pitched the National Right to Work Legal Defense Foundation on a site redesign, it went swimmingly. We were going to work to bring them up to date, give them a better architecture all the way around, and give us all something to be proud of. Fast forward a few months and the design had a major overhaul. Add in some unexpectedly complexities in import… and you get the idea.

Well in the last couple weeks, the whole site has been revamped. It started with a few little things like font colors and tightening up some borders, but quickly extended to balancing the layouts of some boxes, replacing the tiled background image (ack!) with a smooth gradient, and a header nav bar. It was a number of little things… but they added up quickly.

So of course, I'm going to share it here:

This is a relatively stock Drupal 5.1 instance with a few custom Views, integration with a third-party mailing list system, a couple custom modules, and extensive theming. The performance caching is pretty aggressive as their traffic tends to be incredibly bursty.

If you have specific questions, drop me a note or come see the Web Content Maven Panel Discussion on 27 Feb 2008. I'm representing Drupal. 😉 And don't forget to check out National Right to Work Legal Defense Foundation
