We're Your Drupal Service Agency
Cocoon is a full-service digital media agency, specializing in Drupal development at all stages of the development and production chain. Our team of permanent in-house Drupal experts are based in London, and build forward-thinking Drupal solutions that last.
Drupal theming is far more than front-end development. It's an art. Our team of front-end Drupal themers and developers share a passion for innovative design. Combining both form and function, user experience is at the forefront of what we do.
Custom Drupal Theming
Drupal’s a beast of a CMS—it provides a rich toolset for developing complex, integrative sites out-the-box. But one thing Cocoon does very well is making Drupal look as good as it works. We want to build an industry leading Drupal solution that will blow its competition away. Our only question is, will it be yours?
Drupal Theme Developers
The majority of our clients want to offload full-scale Drupal development and management to a capable, responsive agency. That’s us. We’re also open to contracted and outsourced projects, but we much prefer managing the long-term functionality, integrity, and evolution of your enterprise Drupal site.
Drupal Frontend Developers
Some of our clients include multinational travel and airline agencies, government-run healthcare organizations, and some of the biggest names in entertainment. We want to build a stunning visual experience for your audience that will contribute greatly to your return on investment. And the best thing?

Our biggest gripe with Drupal is just how many ugly sites exist that have been built on the platform. Just because you're utilizing a mature framework doesn't mean your website should look aged. Cocoon has been redefining the visual experience of Drupal websites and solutions for years.
We follow a strict in-house list of validation and quality guidelines, to ensure your Drupal site is accessible, user friendly, responsive, and retina-ready.

Where We Excel
As such a powerful content management system, Drupal makes it possible to achieve even the most demanding of outcomes. We’re great at devising innovative strategies to develop the functionality of your Drupal website or application, transforming it into a powerhouse for content delivery.
At Cocoon, we’re passionate about building a lean, direct Drupal solution for every one of our clients. Our goal is to tactically extend Drupal, using lightweight strategies that result in high-functioning, yet high-performance delivery. We don’t stockpile Drupal modules, but we do use a select few to make the development experience smoother on both you, and us.
Specialist Drupal Development
The availability of over 40,000 open source Drupal modules allows speedy development of websites and applications. But we often disagree with the overuse of Drupal modules. Our passion lies in the ability to deliver a highly-functional, well-integrated Drupal site, while keeping it lean. Having worked with over 25,000 clients, we know that poor development techniques can impact your business, your Drupal solution, and your audience.

Views is one of Drupal's most powerful content management, structuring, and delivery tools. We've been using and extending Views for years, and we've used it to build some of our most complex Drupal solutions
We're proficient in Drupal templating, which can act often as one of the most suitable and performance-enhancing mechanisms for extending the functionality of your Drupal site. The use of Drupal templates during development can not only serve to create a more agile process, but also one that decreases website bloat and retains application security.

Cocoon specializes in developing highly-tailored solutions for Drupal performance management, optimization, and scalability. We've worked with some of the world's biggest brands to implement aggressive optimization techniques to Drupal and its dependencies, using industry-leading technology and unbeatable expertise.
We're Experts at Drupal Performance
Many Drupal clients experience concerns with regards to website and application performance and responsiveness. Drupal as a software is highly reliable, and incredibly well optimized out the box. But that doesn’t mean to say that your specific Drupal installation is. We want to identify exactly where your performance difficulties originate, and devise a fool-proof solution that benefits your business. Our main area of expertise in this regard is developing Drupal optimization solutions that significantly improve user experience, while simultaneously decreasing your overheads, resulting in a great ROI.
What We Strive To Achieve
Our performance and optimization techniques take every factor into account; we’re very holistic in this regard. As Drupal itself isn’t the only influencing factor in performance management, we understand the necessity to examine and optimize delivery at every part of the chain.
Specialists at Multi-layer Drupal Optimization
Blazing-fast load times for your audience, team, and applications are our ultimate goal. And that requires far more than basic caching techniques. Our experience with optimization solutions begin far before the user has connected with your Drupal site. Aggressive caching techniques, heavily optimized content delivery and edgepoint integration, and improvement of server architecture and infrastructure are all areas we specialize in.
The native caching configuration options provided in native Drupal are very powerful, and act as a good starting point for optimization of your Drupal website or application. We utilize these built-in optimization tools for initial, low-level caching and compression.
After this, we apply additional, aggressive caching techniques to Drupal via a combination of custom methods and popular, high-performance contributed modules, depending on the compatibility of your specific Drupal solution
We hold great experience in the caching of static files via a range of industry-leading CDNs, and integrate this directly into Drupal utilizing a combination of native-Drupal and custom configuration and development, both on the application and server layer
Optimization of the server infrastructure itself is also very important. For this reason, we perform a complete audit on your server configuration and apply a combination of manual configuration changes to ensure that Drupal is running at optimum performance
We pay specific attention to additional caching mechanisms that can be implemented on the server layer, such as OPcode, Memcache and Varnish. We also analyze your current database configuration on both an application and server level, to ensure that Drupal is performing at its best
We identify areas of potential leakage within both the application and the server itself, and perform manual actions to seal these potential resource-intensive performance leakages
We provide ongoing monitoring of your Drupal instances and server, which run on a 24-hour basis, 7 days a week, 365 days a year. Our internal team of performance consultants are on standby 24/7 and are alerted the very second your Drupal instance or server resource usage begins to increase beyond typical levels.
We offer an immediate response and investigation into the possible source of increased resource usage, and proceed to apply an immediate remedy.
The combination of our aggressive performance management techniques and our immediate response to spikes in traffic and increasing resource usage results in a near-guaranteed increase on your ROI, and has been proved to drastically reduce isolated business costs and total overhead.
Performance management and optimization are integral to Drupal websites of scale. Let's build a forward-thinking solution to the evolving performance demands of the software and hardware that powers your Drupal installation.
Drupal is a beast of a CMS. It's powerful, extendable and highly secure. These factors create the perfect framework for enterprise-level digital solutions. However, proactive ongoing maintenance is required in order to get the best out of Drupal and its dependent frameworks and libraries.
