Scholastic

Content Management for Clifford, Goosebumps, Captain Underpants and a world of characters

Scholastic needed a way help publishers and agents quickly find the rights information for the entire Scholastic catalog, across the world. Up until the point that they began working with me and Filtro, they had been hindered by poor and outdated web design and functionality. We set out to create a website that would not only be informational, but be easy to navigate and thoughtfully constructed for beauty and functionality.

Data, data, and more data

A large component of this project was to export 8000+ book titles, 4500+ rights data, 2000+ author and illustrator profiles, images, and a number of agent user accounts from the existing website. The key was careful planning. We meticulously compiled and exported all the text data into spreadsheets. From there, we scrubbed the data for inconsistencies that were to be avoided on the new website. We worked closely with Scholastic, sharing spreadsheets, looking at the data and prep it for importing. At the same time, we compiled all the images and other data. Once we were finished, we imported the data into the Drupal database.
