Can you do this thing that we need?
That's the question we hear most from our clients, and one way or another, our answer is "sure we can." If not, we'll find a qualified partner who can. Below is a list of areas in which we've worked with clients and assembled some expertise. To see what any of these look like in action, check out some of our project examples. Core competencies not listed: coffee brewing, surf reports, hydrometer readings.
The front-end includes all the parts of a site or app that you see. Developing for the front-end involves creating and styling clear, fast, and context-appropriate interfaces.
Mobile and Web Applications
Whether you need an app to expand your business, or your idea for an app is your business, we can build it. We develop products for the web, iOS, Android, or wherever you need us.
Don't be fooled by the surfboards in the corner: we can button up and build applications scaled for the enterprise world.
APIs and SDKs
We make tools for other developers, too. SDKs (software development kits) give developers the resources they need to build on a platform, while APIs (application programming interfaces) can be used to integrate applications with one another or innovating beyond an existing app.
Languages and Technologies
We have experts raring to go in any of these areas:
- Ruby on Rails
- Elixir / Phoenix Framework
- Swift, iPhone Development
We also like to build apps for, or that integrate with, these platforms:
- Sauce Labs
- Amazon Web Services
- Prismic CMS
Branding and Identity
Figuring out who you are doesn't have to take a lifetime. We can help identify what makes you special and how that can be reflected in everything from your logo to the look and feel of your app.
We can build a website from scratch, overhaul that one that says "copyright 1996", or make it mobile-friendly.
How do you want to appear to people who look at your product? Typography, images, and color schemes all convey a message. We can help you tell this story.
Otherwise known as "What happens when someone clicks here?" Your UI is how users experience your product. We can help build an engaging and intuitive process for them that reflects your personality.
Product strategy involves setting a vision and positioning for a product.
Research is about gathering information and learning how to apply it to your products, identifying your audience, and unearthing ideas about what to do next.
Prototyping and Testing
We’ve developed prototypes and conducted usability tests on them to assess product concepts, interactions, and design. These findings help inform what the ideal product will look like.
Content strategy is where marketing, design, and copy editing meet; it can mean developing communication plans, style guides, information architecture, or writing content.
Agile Development Coaching
We can teach your team how to use Agile development to allow your team to respond more effectively to business needs.
