The George Institute

Ongoing development and support for this health and medical research institute whose mission is to improve the health of millions of people worldwide.

The George Institute had already developed a site on the Drupal platform and needed to upgrade their existing theme to be fully responsive for mobile and tablets.

Leveraging the existing infrastructure and theme, we implemented a complete homepage redesign and a general site upgrade to have a beautifully responsive new look and feel.

We developed 2 custom modules to streamline the import of research publications:

  • A custom module implements a bulk import of publications with the widely used PubMed and EndNote
  • Another custom module automatically fetches the University of New South Wales research papers and imports them into our Drupal installation. A lot of custom functionality has been implemented in this fetch, allowing the data to be manipulated before being stored in our system.

Following the success of the project, delivered under budget and well within the agreed timeframe, we are now working closely with the Director of Global Communication and Digital Engagement Manager to continue improving the platform on a regular basis.

We also completed several SEO tasks for The George Institute, fixing country-specific tags so that Google indexes the platform correctly depending on where the search comes from.

We’ve worked with Marameo Design for a number of years now on multiple projects, from website redesigns to cleaning up messy backends. They are always responsive, professional, and they really take the time to understand our needs and requirements. As a smaller organisation without inhouse Drupal expertise, we rely on their services immensely. Recommended!
