In our work at Duo, we see a lot of RFPs. For those who don't know, an RFP is a request for proposal, and it basically is a document potential clients share with us that tells us about the type of work they're looking for. We look over the information provided in the RFP, and from that, we try to put together as detailed of a proposal as possible.Continue Reading
I've talked with hundreds of Drupal professionals over the years (probably thousands at this point), and whether or not it's intentional, I think we fall into a pattern.

I’ve spent the past 14 years as a designer. I got my degree in graphic design, and I’ve done everything front print design to product packaging to user experience (UX) design. Today I am a senior designer who specializes in user interfaces — what users see and interact with when they use a web product.
I’ve been asked before what makes a good user interface, and the answer really depends on the client. What are their goals? What do they want their user to do? Inherently, the follow up questions I hear are: Well, what if they don’t know what their goals are? How do you help them figure it out? My answer is “Sketchboarding.”Continue Reading
I recently had a meeting with a client who has operated their website on Drupal 7 for the past few years, and they wanted to know why they should upgrade their site from Drupal 7 to Drupal 8. As I worked on answering their question, it became clear to me that there are 8 distinct reasons why it makes sense for businesses and organizations to make the leap from D7 to D8.Continue Reading
