Mightybytes operates with the intent of offering high-quality creative media services in a unique environment that blends artistic talent with a solid work ethic and a 'no-attitude' aesthetic. Our lengthy roster of happy clients is a testament to the fact that this approach works not only for us but for our customers as well.
School of Rock provided us with a company-approved brand book, which helped in defining standards for color, typography and other design elements.
Extensive wireframing, sitemaps, and user task flows helped define critical functions and streamline the process of organizing huge amounts of content from dozens of authors. Defining content types and navigational hierarchy also clarified important questions that arose during the content development and design processes.
The site sits on a Drupal foundation with about 100 open-source contributed and several custom modules. At launch, the site includes the following features: event and gallery management tools for corporate and franchisee sites, support for video libraries and other rich media elements, School Location Finder, custom SalesForce integration via Force.com, ability to build microsites on the fly without programming, one database spanning across all sites, and visually rich GUI on the back-end to help site admins accomplish previously complex tasks.
One of the new site’s most robust features is its ability to quickly add a new franchise location simply by adjusting a few settings. If Duluth, Minnesota signs on as a franchisee, for instance, a Duluth-specific microsite can be launched with minimal effort. Existing corporate-vetted content and guidelines for adding new content are included, simplifying the process of getting a new location up and running quickly.
We will continue to work with the School of Rock team to add features over time, including more web-based franchising tools and support for mobile devices.
