About Us

We were formed 7 years ago to provide website design and app development solutions to businesses within Chester and the Wirral, and have had significant success in designing & developing web solutions and in providing great work experience for students. Have a look below to find out about our approach!

Strategy

We focus on creating a strategy that is user-centred. We solve problems with research, round-table discussion and creating a solid future-proof plan that caters for exactly what the user wants. This concept transpires through design, development and teaching. We then flesh out prototypes and use a combination of our academic background and industry experience to work out the appropriate technology required to take the project forward.

Strategy
  • User Centred Research.
  • Systems Analysis & Strategic Planning.

Design

Great design is simple, useable and unobtrusive. It makes the difference to the success of a project and we believe that it takes natural talent, great understanding and thorough research to get it spot on.
Design is at the heart of every step in a project cycle, from the wireframes at the beginning, to the visual mockups of a site, to then seeing the magical interaction work by the front-end developers in the browser.

Design
  • Experience & Visual Design.
  • User Research & Usability Testing.

Development

With development the aim is always to produce secure, safe and scalable software for our clients. For this to happen we make good use of proven agile development methods, the right combination of industry expertise and the latest technologies. We have a long history of web development using Microsoft technologies like ASP.net and MVC but regularly use PHP to deliver Wordpress and Drupal websites. On the App front, we've created a number of iPhone Apps whilst also having the ability to develop for Android and Windows Phone.

Development
  • Front-end Development - HTML/CSS/JS.
  • Back-end - C#/PHP/Objective C/SQL.
