Web Development

Website development doesn’t have to be difficult.

We stay up to date on the latest technologies, languages and trends to know where things are headed and set our clients up for success. Have an existing project that needs updating? No problem. Ready to start something new? Let’s talk. We’re big on strategy, information architecture, use cases and planning. And we also understand sometimes you might just need a small update, and we can get in there and get things done.

Sound like we can do anything? Well, not quite. We once had someone ask if we could have a website emit a scent… and no, we had to say no we can’t to that one. But once we have it figured out you’ll be the first to know!

Need a custom e-commerce website? No problem. Need a WordPress blog? Check! We build clean, effective websites on whatever platform makes the most sense for you. Don’t get stuck with a programmer’s favorite tool. We can help you leverage the newest technologies that best fit your business.

Not sure what that is? We can help. Our initial strategy phase will identify your needs, and our web design phase will create a user-friendly, on-brand website ready for development.

Content Management Systems… Flexible. Powerful. Fun.

A content management system (CMS) gives you the flexibility to edit your content, the power to add your own code, and the ease to make the whole process fun! Let us set up the system, add your content, provide the training, and leave the fun to you.

There’s no right or wrong platform. There, we said it. Now there are right and wrong platforms for specific jobs (isn’t it great how we did that?!), but we’re platform agnostic. We believe in choosing or building the best platform to get you to your goals. Content management systems we use for website development include:

  • WordPress
  • Joomla
  • Drupal
  • Magento
  • Expression Engine
  • Destiny
  • Custom platforms

E-commerce

Ready to sell online? We can integrate e-commerce into an existing site, or create a custom e-commerce solution Our e-commerce expertise includes: • Magento • Woo Commerce • WP e-commerce • OpenCart • UberCart • FoxyCart • Custom solutions

Custom Development

Sometimes custom is the best way to go. We have a team of programmers ready to create custom web applications using the latest techniques and based on the best information architecture for scalable, robust solutions. Our programming specialties include: • PHP • Zend Framework • Ruby on Rails • ASP • javascript / AJAX • HTML 5 • CSS

We love search engines, too.

All of our systems feature search engine optimization best practices. After all, we want to show off that beautiful website! Looking to drive more traffic to the site? Check out our web marketing services.
