  • 2. Customization for the bespoke ICON 4x4 The Challenge ICON was created by the infamous Jonathan Ward, who worked directly with Mr. Toyota to build three working prototypes of what eventually became the 2007 Toyota FJ Cruiser. ICON was born out of Jonathan Ward’s experience and passion for rugged luxury bespoke 4x4 vehicles. He asked himself, “If we were to revisit the FJ40 our way, how would we do it?” ICON pays homage to the Land Cruiser tradition and the exciting new FJ Cruiser. ICONs are built handmade in California with a starting price of $100,000. How does one drive up sales for such luxury vehicles when auto sales are tumbling, you ask? Well for starters, you make your information accessible, up-to-date, exciting and highly user-friendly.

The Team worked cooperatively to deliver the desired user experience for the new ICON website and layered that with a scalable technology solution and implementation. Oshyn recommended that the website be built using the Open Source Content Management System, Drupal. Oshyn chose Drupal to give ICON staffers an easy and cost-effective way to manage the website, quickly create new galleries, videos, new pages and edit all content. In the future ICON can add more features to the website such as podcasts, blogs, events, polls, collaborative work, forums, etc.
