Top 10 Drupal Sites

November 2, 2012

One of the best ways to stay creative is to engage in ongoing side projects. Without the demands of clients or the need to meet requirements for customers, you can have unlimited freedom over your project.

That is why we, at FliteHaus, have put together a gallery of the best Drupal design on the web. We’ve decided to call it Drupal Paradise. Born out of a need to show our clients just how limitless the possibilities are for Drupal sites, we wanted to create a gallery to showcase the best of the best.

The site is currently somewhere between “alpha” and “beta” stages, but early results are in on the 10 best Drupal web designs so far. Let’s count down the top 10 sites to date.
