Palantir.net

Drupal Version: 
This website looks great on mobile devices!
Why does this website deserve to win?: 
As a company that believes that the future of the Web lies in sites that are responsive to whatever device a visitor is using, we knew that we needed to practice what we preach when it came time to redesign our own website. We also wanted a site that better highlighted our capabilities, our team, and our personality as a company. When Ethan Marcotte, the father of responsive Web design, was asked last fall to list twenty of his favorite responsive design websites for .net Magazine, he included Palantir's new site on the list, citing its "diversity of layouts" and the way that the grid is tailored to meet the needs of the content on the site.
Website Launch Date: 
Monday, August 29, 2011
How It Was Done (optional): 

Palantir's in-house design team designed the new front-end look-and-feel for the site, including branding, illustrations, and style guide. Responsive layouts were built using HTML wireframe prototypes before being built out in Drupal.

In order to achieve the diversity of layouts required for the site, we utilized the latest Drupal 7 release of the Zen base theme, which utilizes Sass (Syntactically Awesome Stylesheets) and CSS3 media queries to deliver stylesheets that adapt on-the-fly based on the user’s screen resolution. Additional Drupal modules, such as Views and Panels, were leveraged in creative ways to build responsive layouts for various pages.
