What We Do Best

Digital strategy, visual design and technology services for our clients and partners.

Strategy and Planning

A proper strategy and planning phase will ensure your project best meets your needs. And, you will likely learn some cool things along the way.

Research and Project Management

To best plan a solution we spend time learning about our clients and researching the competitive landscape. This ensures our solution meets (and often exceedes) it's goals. We track our progress using Basecamp, a simple-to-use online project management site.

Information Architecture

When starting any new project we work closely with our clients and partners to understand their business and objectives. We establish requirements and determine how we'll measure success. We learn as much as possible about a business to make recommendations that ensure the project can successfully meet goals and objectives.


Technology Recommendations

We plan our technology solution before we start any coding and development. This way we can be sure the software, services and vendors are clearly defined and reviewed by our clients. And, we can help our clients prepare their content and asset organization.

Digital Communication Strategy

Users are expecting content and features that work with their preferred means of consumption and sharing. By planning an ongoing digital communication strategy around tools such as Facebook, Twitter and Google+, we make sure our clients are heard.


User Experience Design

While the planning is good fun, design is when the project is given a look and feel. This is always an exciting phase of a project.

Website and Application Design

Our design team creates engaging experiences that take advantage of the latest emerging technologies and techniques available. Because we're likely building the front-end of the project as well, we can ensure the creative will work once coded.

Technical Design Consulting

We also work with our clients in-house design and marketing teams, and other web designers on projects. We enjoy this type of work as it gives us a chance to collaborate on interesting projects. When working in this capacity, we often review designs for technical soundness prior to client approval.


Identity Design and Execution

While we specialize in designing online experiences, our team also has extensive experience with traditional graphic design. We can create logos,identities and related materials for both online and offline clients.


Technology & Development

Once designs are approved, we bring them to life using the latest web technologies and techniques including HTML, CSS, Javascript and ExpressionEngine.

Front-end Code

We produce clean, standards-compliant HTML, CSS and Javascript. We work in HTML 5 because it is a universal standard that allows for the greatest current and future audience penetration. And, the CSS we create is lightweight and efficient.

ExpressionEngine

Our CMS of choice is ExpressionEngine. We are able to use this powerful, flexible software in innovative ways to meet even the most demanding projects. And, because ExpressionEngine is such a flexible platform, future development is easy breezy.


Application Development

We enjoy the fast-moving world of application development. We focus on web apps that span all mobile environments. We also have experience with iOS native applications.

Hosting, Backup and Monitoring

We use best-of-breed vendors such as Media Temple, Amazon S3 and Pingdom to ensure our clients sites are always performing their best. With 24/7/365 monitoring and support everyone can rest easy.
