How to Equip your Marketing Team for Success with Gatsby and Contentful

Learn how web development agency Delicious Simplicity built a modern, marketing-team-friendly, component-based site with Gatsby and Contentful for Starlight Children's Foundation.

Learning your way around a headless CMS isn’t always easy, and for many marketers and content creators, the benefits of Gatsby are overshadowed by the difficulty of abandoning the usability and time-tested workflows they have in their existing CMS. But what if you could set up a modern headless CMS to be even more user-friendly, flexible, and efficient than their current CMS?

When Starlight Children’s Foundation needed a site redesign, they had this challenge in mind. Starlight is dedicated to “Delivering happiness to seriously ill kids” by providing hospitals with gaming equipment and VR experiences for children. Their goals for the website were to update the design to better align with the fun and tech-focus of their programs, provide a better experience for their site users, and to provide a more efficient and user-friendly experience for the less technical marketing team members who maintain the site.

Learn how Starlight worked with agency Delicious Simplicity to build a modern, component-based site with Gatsby and Contentful that inspires confidence and lets the Starlight team focus on their important mission.
