Stanford Cantor Arts Center

stanford cantor arts center webstite homepage

Stanford Cantor Arts Center underwent a substantial redesign and needed a development partner to implement the site in Drupal 8. Hook 42 created a solid content strategy and toolkit for the small, non-technical content contributor team to artistically showcase their collections, exhibitions, and events. Our team leveraged web components and a solid pattern library to ensure the branding and display was consistent across pages, regardless of the configuration of the content components. In addition to the beautiful and responsive site, Hook 42 architected and developed a custom integration to the main Stanford events feed to automatically populate museum content on the site over time.

Read the UI Patterns Module article by Ryan Bateman that explores the use of the Drupal module leveraged for the websites modular content creation tools.

Reviewing the Work

We held discussions to highlight the thought leadership involved in each step of the process, reviewing key pieces of the project that would be valuable to the Drupal community.

A Cantor Arts Center website case study presentation was delivered by the team at Stanford Drupal Camp 2018. Later, at BADCamp 2018, Kristen Pol and Ryan Bateman presented on the topic. Following the BADCamp presentation was yet another discussion by Kristen Pol and Ryan Bateman at DrupalCon 2019.

Field Notes: UI Patterns Module

When it comes to Atomic Design systems in Drupal 8, there’s hardly a shortage of solutions to choose from. Pattern Lab and KSS Node are certainly among the most popular and the recently released Mannequin looks incredibly exciting. However, in all these aforementioned solutions, exposing that component data to Drupal has never been particularly straightforward.

Hook 42 goes to Washington!

Hook 42 is expanding our enterprise Drupal services to the public sector. It’s only logical that our next trek is to Drupal GovCon!

We are bringing some of our colorful San Francisco Bay Area love to DC. We will be sharing our knowledge about planning and managing migrations, as well as core site building layout technologies. The most exciting part of the conference will be meeting up with our east coast Drupal community and government friends in person.
