Expert Craft CMS Developers
Masuga Design has a decade of Craft CMS development experience. Our deep knowledge of content management coupled with Craft's flexibility results in successful projects with measurable ROI.
Masuga Design and Craft CMS
We've developed highly customized, incredibly flexible, and exceptionally user-friendly Craft CMS website projects for a decade (and we were even using it when it was previously called "Blocks"!). Craft CMS is one of our go-to content management systems for new projects.
Craft CMS is a great tool and we know how to utilize it:
- APIs and 3rd-party integrations
- Custom modules and plugin development
- Upgrades (Craft 2 to 3)
- Migrations (converting other systems to Craft)
- Bespoke eCommerce experiences with Craft Commerce (traditional commerce as well as a custom-built points gateway for "Reward Stores")
- Ongoing support, maintenance, and updates
In 2017, we published The Guide to Craft CMS Development—a 165 page book on our process for developing Craft-driven sites using Git version control.
Why should you build your website using Craft CMS?
You probably don't care all that much about your content management system. Ideally, you don't want to think about it at all. You have a business to run, things to do. You just want to make a new page, or upload a new PDF. Get in, get out. We understand. That said, here are a couple things in Craft CMS that will help ensure you can do just that.
Live preview is possibly the nicest of nice-to-haves for content managers. Users such as yourself can preview changes and watch the content update in real time, prior to saving the entry.
You can also share content that you're working on with anyone you wish by using a sharable preview URL. The live preview in Craft CMS is perhaps the best one we've seen.
Flexible Entry Layouts
Everything you need, and nothing you don't.
Who needs to see 50 fields every time they go in to edit an entry if 99% of those fields aren't used?
Craft helps us keep your content entry clean and sensible with custom field types. Each type of entry has just the fields it needs, in a common sense format based on the data in that field. Whether it's a simple FAQ channel with 2 fields, or a complex product channel with upwards of 30 fields, you see what you need based on what you're editing.
We always make sure to utilize custom field instructions so you'll never forget if a field is optional, what size an image should be, or where something shows up.
And there's more, such as flexible user permissions, built-in support for localization (multi-language), plugin APIs, and one of the easiest update methods we've ever used, which is critical for keeping your site up to date for security, speed, and new features.
