About Monarch Digital

Simply, Monarch Digital develops web sites (large and small) in Drupal. The best way to determine if we might be right for your project is to take a look at the sites we've developed in our online portfolio and the unique features we've built into those sites. Check out our corporate profile on drupal.org.

Monarch Digital is Rick and Pat Nashleanas' third startup. Rick and Pat founded Eden Systems Corporation in 1985. Eden Systems developed and marketed mainframe software tools around the world.  After selling Eden Systems to their German distributor, Rick and Pat founded Monarch Technology Management - a consulting and recruiting firm.  In 2000, Monarch Digital's initial inception was a full service marketing firm serving both consumers and businesses.  Over the years, Monarch Digital has come to focus exclusively on Drupal web site development.

Short biographies of Rick and Pat are available here on the web site.  In addition, Monarch has an extremely talented staff of developers who have brought to life the many portfolios featured here.  

For most projects, Monarch tends to use the waterfall development methodology.  Most organizations need to have a firm budget for their project and we need to know what we're going to build in order to provide an accurate estimate.  For smaller sites, we can develop a comprehensive requirements document that our clients can modify and approve before we start building anything.  For larger projects, we might create more bite-size stages of work.

For all of our work in developing engaging functionality of your site, an appealing design will attract and keep your visitors on your site.  Monarch is primarily a development company; we are not designers.  We have created beautiful sites in a number of ways.  We can implement designs based upon your layouts or based upon designs of sites that effectively use similar design concepts.  We have a cadre of excellent Drupal designers that we can call upon to work on your project.  Finally for small sites, we have had customers who have had us customize existing open source Drupal themes.  Be careful with this last option; you can quickly spend more time and money modifying an existing theme than you would spend in developing a unique theme for your business.
