Who We Are: We Are Creators

Over the past few weeks, we’ve been delving into the “We Are” phrases on our homepage. We’ve put a lot of thought into who we are as an agency and what words and phrases best describe us. We innovate within the Drupal space, we strategize on digital content, we lead by example, we offer expertise to our clients and the Drupal community, and we do great design work.

Who We Are: We Are Strategists

What is the difference between a goal, an objective, a strategy, and a tactic? Simply put, a goal is the desired end result, an objective is a nearer-term benchmark in the direction of your goal, a strategy is the path toward your objective, and a tactic is a single element of your strategy.

Who We Are: We Are Designers

Design is the lifeblood of what we do at Chapter Three. While much of this blog is devoted to development-related topics like decoupled Drupal, all development revolves around the design that supports it. Design is what clients and audiences see and engage with, and it makes or breaks a website as much as the site’s infrastructure.

How To Load Test a Decoupled Drupal Site

One of the great advantages of decoupled architecture is its ability to weather spikes in web traffic. With a traditional CMS, a sudden burst of traffic could overwhelm the server and paralyze your site, including the administration interface, which may only be used by a small fraction of your users. With a headless architecture, heavy traffic on the front-end can have little to no impact to the back-end.

Who We Are: We Are Content Therapists

The saying “content is king”, a cliche at this point, hearkens to an essay written by Bill Gates in 1996 about the future of the Internet, in which he predicted that “those who succeed will propel the Internet forward as a marketplace of ideas, experiences, and products—a marketplace of content.”

Who We Are: We Are Innovators

Why do we call ourselves “Chapter Three”? It’s often said that in a novel, the real action doesn’t start until three chapters in, with the first two used to set up the characters and the scene. We like to think of ourselves as a place where the “real action” takes place, hence the name Chapter Three. It’s a name we landed on nearly two decades ago and one that still suits us.
