Things we do for our clients

Digital Strategy

Strategy

We care about our the success of our clients.

Once you work with us, you’ll see that’s both our foundation and our goal. We ask the tough questions, and do the things that will ensure that every dollar our clients spend with us is creating value.

User Experience Design

User experience design

Inspired design isn’t a layer of gloss that is applied to a piece of code that’s about to ship; it’s an approach that affects every aspect of a project. Our design approach is to create functional, beautiful, and memorable work for our clients.

Both Tim and Vince are proud to be card-carrying members of RGD, and Tim is currently serving on its board of directors.

Content Managed Websites

Content managed websites

Static. That’s a kind of electricity, right? It’s certainly not a way to build a website. We make heavy use of powerful CMS products like Kentico and Wordpress, giving our clients the power to make their own changes.

Clients tend to enjoy our thoughtful approach to configuration; most data can be entered via simple, structured forms. Photo galleries are created in minutes. Routine tasks are quick and painless, so our clients can get back to what they really want to do - manage their business.

Custom Development

Custom development

Remember what we said about building the whole solution? We meant it.

We have a real, in-house team of front-end and back-end developers who can take your idea and turn it into a reality. You need an integration with an existing system? No problem. E-commerce? Sure thing. Believe us, it’s nice to have the geeks on your side.

Usability Consulting

Usability consulting

You need to know how people use your website or software.

We moderate usability sessions, using fancy tools like Morae to uncover hidden insights about your users. Then we design clever solutions that will make your site (or software) better.

Your users will love you for it.

Mobile Apps

Mobile apps

Yes, we design and build mobile apps for iOS, Android, and Windows.

Right from the very beginning when the concept is murky, to submitting your final product to an app store, we can help guide you to a successful conclusion.

Multimedia Production

Multimedia production

More cowbell! Maybe your project needs a little more. Some music. Or an engaging video. Or you just want a little animation to make your point.

Whatever the case, we’re fully equipped to help put a little more cowbell in your next project.

Fun fact: Did you know that Tim is a trained audio engineer?

Social Media

Responsive design

Your site needs to work everywhere - from the largest desktop monitors to the smallest handheld devices.

Responsive design is the solution to that problem. One site that changes and adapts to its conditions. We love it, and we guarantee you will too.

Hey, we even gave an RGD webinar back in 2012 to help other designers learn about this great methodology!

Hosting

Hosting

You want to feel confident that your site is fast, secure, and reliable.

We host our sites with suppliers you know and trust, featuring exceptional uptime and security.

All our sites are constantly monitored for uptime and failures, so when anything goes amiss, we know instantly.

Our process

It’s not easy to do things right, but the right process can make even the most difficult of tasks achievable. We’ve broken our typical workflow into four steps that help us get to success every time.

Analyze

1. Analyze

It’s easy to get excited about a new project, only to rush ahead into a quagmire of (yikes!) ineffective solutions. We prefer to start our projects with an analysis phase. Gathering information helps us create context, and understand the problem more fully.

Strategize

2. Strategize

Once we understand the problem and the parameters, we roll up our sleeves to come up with a solution. We’ll work with you to take the information we’ve gathered and develop our strategy and requirements.

Crystalize

3. Crystalize

We’re now ready to put pen to paper and see how this thing works. Information architecture and wireframes. Database design. Graphic design. Clients start getting really excited because their project is starting to take shape. We have to admit, we’re pretty excited ourselves.

Realize

4. Realize

Time to bring this thing to life. Our team works to realize the vision we’ve created. Development, testing, and refinement. Maybe a few tweaks as we learn from usability sessions.

Once everyone is satisfied that this, indeed, was what we’ve all been working toward, we’re ready to deploy.

We're a Kentico CMS Gold Partner
