Back in April, I launched a redesign for RVA Magazine. I collaborated with Richmond, VA designer Gabriel Ricioppo of Brandbuilt on the project. RVA is one of the most widely known culture magazines in the Richmond area. Their old website didn't allow them to adequately showcase the massive amounts of content they generate on a weekly basis. I went with Drupal to deliver the amount of functionality the magazine required while staying on budget. The site also utilizes quite a bit of third-party services: Twitter, Flickr, Vimeo, Yahoo! Pipes, ShareThis and Issuu.
Nearly two months after launch, the RVA staff is still publishing tons of weekly content, their sustained traffic is up over 100% and they're regularly the first result when searching for RVA on Google.
