PRODUCT DEVELOPMENT PHILOSOPHY
Learn From Data
We study design patterns, online engagement patterns, and effectively executed products in our space. Learning what’s working and bringing that inspiration to our project can help us stand on the shoulder of giants while bringing a completely exciting, new approach.
We use the right tools for the job. Whether it’s popular dev language like .NET, PHP, JSP, or Python, or a any of the top graphic design technologies, we pull teams together that can figure out how to bring the project to life in a timely manner.
Collaboration is King
No one creates great technology projects in a vacuum. Having a great communication system – especially when working with outsourced teams – is vital. We put this at the top of our priority list and bring great team experiences to our customers.
Make People Smile
It’s important to create a sense of Wonderment in every product and feature we create. Whether this is a technical piece with little front end, or a beautifully-designed consumer site / app, we strive to make the experience engaging and worthy of sharing.
Iteration is Our Friend
No one gets it right the first time, and that’s why the web is amazing. We use iteration, testing, and re-implementation to discover great ideas and bring them out of the shadows.
Meet Our Team
We listen, we advise, we design and develop. We love to learn and use the latest technologies.
