The User Advocate Group brings solid UX strategy expertise into back-end Drupal development to produce superior productivity-oriented user interface systems. Our projects include highly intuitive CMS user interfaces for Drupal websites and advanced site-building strategies for the Drupal platform.

Drupal Based Projects

D8 Websites

The User Advocate has created an innovative site building system on top of the Drupal 8 platform. Our powerful D8-SBS layer removes the traditional 'Drupal learning curve' for content managers and makes information architecture planning and updating a breeze. Site owners find its 'outside-in' user interface a natural and intuitive way to keep their website in tune with their business intent, both strategically and tactically.

Art Gallery of Ontario Events

When the Art Gallery of Ontario required a landing page to promote the facilities rentals for events, The User Advocate Group was contracted to build a highly modular Drupal 8 page building system. This system takes advantage of the powerful ‘Paragraphs’ module to provide rich data structures and intuitive management of sub-components.

Made With Nestle

This multi-faceted site, designed and produced by OneMethod, features the many popular brands under the Nestle Canada umbrella. The User Advocate Group provided key Drupal 7 development skills for the initial site build.

Business-Oriented CMS

The content management workflow required by Nestle was too demanding for an off-the-shelf solution. On behalf of OneMethod, we built a highly intuitive, business-oriented content management system that virtually eliminates the need for training and efficiently handles the multi-stage, multi-version content production process.

Drupal Site Maintenance

We provided Drupal 7 development and maintenance services on behalf of Bensur Creative Marketing Group for projects such as PostHoldings.com, Powerbar.com, and PremierNutrition.com. We also developed a Drupal-based app that interacted with a third party fulfillment service via a SOAP API.

Aga Khan Museum

This Drupal 7 site was prepared and launched for the opening of the remarkable Aga Khan Museum in Toronto. The site was designed by Devlin Digital. The User Advocate Group did the implementation.

Outside-In Website Building

Outside-In website building is more intuitive for non-technical users for a very simple reason: that's the natural way to see websites - from the outside! Looking at the screen is a lot easier to understand than the complex abstractions that techie developers deal with on the 'inside'.

The User Advocate Group used the concept of 'Outside-In' to create an intuitive user interface for managing content and building sites with the powerful Drupal 8 CMS platform. We call it 'D8-SBS' and it makes working with Drupal a natural and comfortable process.

The Outside-In approach to sitebuilding keeps in sync with the way you think about your website and content. D8-SBS provides the natural Outside-In user interface tools for content management.

Even in the planning stages, D8-SBS allows us to capture the Business Intent for the website and its subcomponents. We can build a fully interactive architecture of a site long before any content becomes available! This helps you keep track of the creation process and helps the production team work together with high efficiency as we move towards the launch.

DIY site building systems and even Wordpress are easy to use early on but have limited capacity for customization and meeting demanding functional and branding specs. Drupal is the most powerful and customizable open source platform available, but it is complex and has a high barrier to entry for site builders and content managers. The User Advocate Group's innovative D8-SBS methodogy gives you the best of both worlds. We remove the learning curve for rapid deployment while keeping the full capabilities of Drupal 8 for long term evolution.
