New Resourcing the Reef Drupal site launched

Recently, both the digital and design team at JSA had the opportunity to work with the Great Barrier Reef Foundation, creating and launching a vibrant, new Resourcing the Reef website on par with the spectacle of one of the world’s largest natural wonders.

Approaching JSA to tender, the Great Barrier Reef Foundation were looking to increase awareness for 10 years of resourcing the reef as well as their decade long, ongoing relationship with BHP Billiton Assets and the role this partnership has played in innovative research and management of the Great Barrier Reef.

After a successful pitch showcasing a newly designed logo and a conceptualised site look and feel, the digital team proceeded with a Drupal build that put user experience and interface design at the fore, and according to JSA’s head of digital, Brent Lupton, the site is a gleaming example of JSA’s Drupal capability.

“Having only recently become Acquia certified partners we’re very proud of the work that went into Resourcing the Reef.”

“We’re continuing to see a greater shift towards Drupal being a highly desirable and secure CMS in the Brisbane marketplace, and this has been reflected by a number of other enquiries we’ve received regarding Drupal builds of late.”

When looking at the scalability and security behind Drupal, it’s not hard to see why a lot of government entities are interested in the CMS.

“Drupal gives our clients the ability to showcase their projects and other work across anything from 1 page to a thousand or more with ease. And with enterprise level security providing in depth reporting, all the bases are covered.”

Since launching Resourcing the Reef, the site has sustained substantial traffic with an average session duration of over four and half minutes, proving that there is a lot of public interest in maintaining one of Australia’s greatest maritime wonders, and both JSA and the Great Barrier Reef Foundation couldn’t have asked for a better result.
