The Process

Our partners feel confident that when they deliver their creative design, we can take it through all stages of development, starting with template building in HTML/CSS, ground-up WordPress theme creation, responsive integration for mobile, full browser testing, and finally, the launch of the website. Our number one building tool for Content Management is WordPress along with all of the resources and tools that the WordPress platform has to offer.

Once we are presented with a design, we utilize all aspects of WordPress, HTML, CSS, PHP, Web Fonts, jQuery, and other tools to create a site that is fully responsive on all platforms. WordPress is open source and can be completely customized with very few design limitations and we utilize the most powerful plugins available. We tailor the WordPress adminstration pages to the unique needs of each project using several top plugins, incuding Custom Post Types UI, Yoast SEO & Advanced Custom Fields. We perform thorough testing on all relevant browsers on both the MAC and Windows platform, as well as tablet and phone emulators. We program from the ground up using Coda, WordPress and Adobe products.

If the end-client choses to not use WordPress, we bring designers and back-end developers together by providing responsive template pages that are passed on to the client for further development. This provides the basic framework for a site and is especially useful for clients that work with in-house or third party developers.
