Our development team brings usability to the next level. By combining their experiences in design with an unstoppable desire to stay on the cutting edge of technology, they build sites, apps and products that are fast, intuitive and beautiful.

Our process brings our coding masterminds into the conversation for any project right from the start. Working together in this way allows us to provide solutions that function as well as they look from the outset — not to mention ensuring that the experience easily translates to any screen size.

Web Design
We believe in creating beautiful sites that are intuitively easy to use. Intent is a big part of what we do. How do our clients intend for their customers to interact with a site or product? We evaluate a project’s goals and then zero in on content priority, page hierarchy and clear navigation. There is a direct correlation between ease of use and actual use. By limiting frustration and instead delivering a useful and enjoyable experience, we give your users a reason to spend more time on your site and incentive to share it with others. Web design is not simply the pretty shell that houses products or messaging. The design is the product and the message.

The Ample CMS
The Ample CMS is an extremely powerful tool that gives our clients control of their own online brand. Hand-crafted for every client to meet their unique needs, the Ample CMS has managed social media interaction, acted as a photography repository and has provided the framework for content heavy sites with pages in the thousands. Perhaps its biggest claim to fame however is just how easy it is to use. It gives even the “technically challenged” the ability to add or edit content on their own site — from uploading and swapping images to rewording messaging.

Ruby on Rails
Ruby on Rails, often shortened to Rails, is the bricks and mortar of our creations. It is an open source, full-stack web application framework for the Ruby programming language. A “full-stack framework,” means that it gives our developers the ability to gather information from the web server, talk to or query the database, and render templates out of the box. Rails has fewer lines of redundant code, re-uses existing components and has a host of pre-baked plug-in components that eliminate the need to build everything from scratch. All that being said, what our clients love about Rails is that it provides an incredibly fast site with unmatched opportunity for customization.
