Stanford Web Services provides the Stanford community a full range of Drupal website planning, design, development, and maintenance support at well below market rates.
While assistance is available for web projects of any scale and nature, the core services are designed to be most attractive to departments and official groups that choose to benefit from the university’s best design ideas (both shared and original) and its most efficient, centrally-funded infrastructure tools. Services include:
- design, development, and production;
- oversight of university web branding, including web themes and style guidelines; and
- project consultation and guidance on vendor relationships.
