Case study

MIT Institute Community & Equity Office

Client: MIT Institute Community & Equity Office

Services: visual design, development (Drupal Cloud), client training, project management

The existing Institute Community & Equity Office website had been built using WordPress with templated themes and plugins, many of which conflicted with one another. The visual identity had been professionally designed by Ink Design but had been poorly implemented. The site was difficult to maintain and did not meet accessibility standards.

Pixton Associates presented a variety of visual solutions using Ink Design’s existing logo and color palette, based on development with MIT’s Drupal Cloud platform. The initial pages were presented to the senior leadership in October 2019, and based on their feedback, the site was completed and went live in January 2020.

The Events feature uses Drupal’s internal calendar system to post upcoming events in list and full form, displaying a headline of the event on the home page. When the event date passes, the event automatically appears in the Past Events section.
