DESIGNING & DEVELOPING FOR TECH STARTUPS.
We love our work process and so do our clients. We work really closely with our clients and involve them in every stage of the project in an open, transparent way. At each stage of every project our clients always know what we are doing and who is working on what all in real-time too. It's a very collaborative experience.
We break down the process into a few fundamental areas; planning, wireframing, design and development. We find this focus on a few core areas makes for a smooth experience.
We love making our process fun too; we're no dull corporate company, we like some banter and a joke is never wasted on us. We consider our clients part of the family.
We have experienced programming staff in developing custom-made web applications for your web site. We also have a range of ready-made, highly customizable web applications that can be quickly and easily added to your web sites.

Wireframing is where we start to flesh out the layout, content and user experience of the project. Producing a structure that we can then use for the foundations of design and development.
User experience is always in the forefront of our process, making sure everything we produce is intuitive and simple to use. We achieve this through the wireframing stage with user testing to make sure we really hit the nail on the head and make for some very happy users.
User interaction is awesome, it's the icing on the cake that makes all the difference to a user's experience.
PRESENTED WITH INVISION
We love to present our wireframes in InVision. It's a great tool that allows the client to comment on the wireframes directly and link through to the site/application as if it was coded up. Perfect for some quality user testing.
Good content layout and hierarchy makes sure you get the right content to the user in the appropriate place and manner. This really helps produce a readable, usable experience that is correctly targeted to the user.
