Drupal Design Development and Performance Optimization for NYC-based Spirits Company
Migrate website to Pantheon, reduce the codebase, implement caching, SEO audit, accessibility audit
A performance audit of Bowler Wine's website showed "enormous network payloads". The Div team was brought on board to do an overhaul of the codebase and site-build to improve performance, accessibility (ADA compliance), and SEO best practices for their website. We also did a redesign + redevelopment of the frontend. The site has about 8,000 pieces of content, mostly well-structured in the database, but not optimized on the frontend. We migrated the website to Pantheon, removed 70 modules from the codebase, implemented sensible image presets, caching, and used Apache Solr Search to build an easily searchable display of Bowler's extensive portfolio of wines and spirits.
