Drupal theme design and development

A Drupal theme, compatible with 200 plus legacy webpages, delivered in six weeks


The brief

Build a WCAG compliant Drupal theme based on new brand guidelines. The theme had to be backwards compatible with existing website content.

What we did

We delivered the theme over six, one-week sprints. This gave Haringey’s web team sufficient time to sign off our changes and Ixis, their hosting partner, time to review the code before releasing.

The theme we were replacing used the Bootstrap CSS framework. To maintain backwards compatibility, we used the same framework, customised to match the new brand guidelines, alongside upgrades to the underlying HTML structure.

To make sure there was no downtime, we “bundled up” these changes into exportable modules and installed them on staging and production servers in seconds.


  • The first RNIB approved local authority website
  • WCAG compliant
