Saybrook University website rebuild

Saybrook was perhaps the most massive undertaking to date for myself in terms of digital projects, but I lead a knowledgeable and capable team and we stuck to our plan. Some of the many challenges included staying true to Saybrook’s unique brand, taming its complicated site architecture (5000 pages when we started the project), and migrating from Drupal to WordPress. Amazingly (though not surprising to me), we succeeded, met our launch date, and were well under budget. Check out the new Saybrook.edu website. (launched 2-17-2016)
