Shaping Sustainable Markets

15 September 2014

The client

Shaping Sustainable Markets is a research initiative that explores how the formal and informal rules used to govern markets – called Market Governance Mechanisms (MGMs) – are designed, and how they impact on people, the planet and the economy.

The brief

The research group required a site with a database of market governance mechanisms as its core, built on a flexible content management system to allow them to update the content themselves. Capabilities included the ability to add and edit database entries and to publish blog posts. The database needed to be searchable and navigable via three main criteria: location, industry sector and mechanism type.

The solution

The site was designed by cbrody.com using the group’s branding as a guide, and created in Drupal 7 using core and contributed modules, custom content types and theme, PHP templates, CSS and JavaScript. A carousel containing PDF publications and a news section are included via RSS feeds.
