Partnering With Non-Drupal Designers


Published on

Drupal's templating system can be hard to wrap your head around at first. In other content management systems, you start with some flat HTML, CSS and Javascript files. You might throw in some template tags, and call your theme complete.

Not so much in Drupal, where we have page templates, node templates, and probably some preprocess functions to boot.

Whether you've hired an outside design agency or are a developer collaborating in-house, we'll discuss best practices for integrating visual design comps into Drupal and how designers and developers can work together most effectively.
