It’s Here! Announcing the Launch of the New Mediacurrent.com

Since joining Mediacurrent in 2009, I've seen firsthand how our company has grown and evolved, and how our website has mirrored those changes. Today, I am thrilled to announce the launch of our newly redesigned website, mediacurrent.com.

We've come a long way since 2007!

2017 marked the 10 year anniversary of Mediacurrent. It's been an amazing journey from a Drupal firm to a full-service digital agency. Along this journey, we've expanded and redefined our services to meet the changing needs of our clients. Explore the site to learn more about Mediacurrent's development, design, and strategy services.

Redesign Goals

Built on Drupal 8 with a decoupled approach, the new site reflects a clear vision of our core focus:

Open source development, design, and strategy that grows your digital ROI

Celebrating Our Success

I am incredibly proud of the Mediacurrent team for the persistence and hard work that went into building our new website. It's this teamwork that has fueled award-winning sites for Weather.com, Travelport.com, Careaction.org, and many others. See how we do it.

Sharing Our Resources

In our very first company blog post circa 2009, we shared an ambitious goal - we hope the Mediacurrent staff can share pertinent content, and become a trusted advisor when it comes to your web related issues - and we got there! From blog posts and tutorials to videos and podcasts, our new site makes it easier to navigate a great depth of thought leadership content by the Mediacurrent team.

Expressing Our Culture

Mediacurrent is in an exciting period of growth, and we're evolving our team to keep pace with all of the work that lies ahead. Our culture is at the core of everything we do and one of the biggest drivers behind our redesign was to tell that story. There are lots of ways to do this on the new Mediacurrent.com: meet our team, see how we give back to the Drupal community, and see our job openings.

Enjoy the new Mediacurrent.com site, and we welcome your feedback!

Meet team member, Jay Callicott

An enthusiastic Drupal developer of ten years, Jay spent six years as Mediacurrent’s Lead Architect before transitioning to his current role in 2015. As the Vice President of Technical Operations, Jay helps to foster best practices and shape processes for Mediacurrent's development team. An active contributor to the Drupal community, Jay has developed dozens of custom modules, coded themes, and written install profiles for projects from Drupal 5 through Drupal 8.

Prior to Mediacurrent, Jay worked as a PHP developer in Little Rock, AR. During that time, Jay worked on several large PHP builds including the Arkansas Drug & Alcohol Testing Database, the Arkansas State Police FBI Civil Harvesting Application and the Arkansas Governor Newsroom which won his agency an e-government award that year.

During his 8 years at Mediacurrent, Jay has led teams on dozens of projects including more recently Turner.com, Jamaica Star, and University of Georgia. He maintains several key marketing automation modules (Pardot, Silverpop, Eloqua, Hubspot, and Automate) that have helped solidify Mediacurrent as a thought leader in the marketing automation space. Jay created and actively maintains one of the most popular distributions on Drupal,  OpenChurch, which has over 100,000 downloads. A Drupal 8 version (relying almost entirely on core modules) was recently released.
