About


We are a small web development shop based out of Washington, DC.

Here's what you need to know: We are a team of web developers and designers who love to build and release really cool stuff. And when you hire us, you get just that.

A Great Product, Every Time

We're not a chop shop for cheap development. We believe in partnering with our clients to build an excellent product we're all excited about - whether its a website, application, or mobile product.

Communication and Project Management

If you've worked with other developers, you know that good communication skills are key in getting what you want. We pride ourselves in being able to partner with clients who run the full spectrum of technical expertise. You'll never feel lost or confused working with us, as our ability to work with both technical and non-technical people shines through in our meetings, project management, and training.

Startup Mentality

We come from a background of working with startups. A lot of our clients are startups. We have our own internal startup. Every project we do is treated like a startup: get a great product out faster, better, and cheaper.


Services


Web Development

You might be a designer or a creative agency. You have the design skills, but need the technical horsepower to take that PSD and make it into a fully working website.

A core service of ours is partnering with designers and their clients. We'll take a completed design, and carry the torch until the site is launched - including CMS development and training, content loading, hosting, and testing.

CMS Development

Almost all of our websites are built on standard CMS tools. We work mainly with Wordpress and Expression Engine, but are proficient in others.

  • Theme Development
  • Plugin Development
  • Advanced Functionality
  • Third Party Platform Integration
  • Training

Application Development

We do full stack web and social application development.

  • Ruby on Rails
  • PHP
  • Custom Platforms: Facebook, Twitter, etc...

Web Design

You may come to us with an idea of what you want, but no design. We have a worldwide network of talented designers, and include that in our service.

  1. Wireframing
  2. Full Color Design
  3. User Experience

Startup Execution

One of our favorite services is partnering with startups. As a startup ourselves, the passion that comes with working together to build a great product is toxic.

Whether you're a startup that needs your product idea prototyped or built out, or if you're looking for a particular skill to supplement your team's talent, we're there. We provide strategy, consulation, and of course, design and development services.

Cooking

OK, we aren't professional chefs. We just needed a sixth box to fill out this grid.

We are really good cooks, though.


Portfolio


We've been lucky to do some amazing projects for some truly great clients. Here are a few that we can talk about (we respect clients need for discretion whenever asked).

  • Open Source

    We get so much from open source, so, as good developers, we try and turn as much of our work as possible into open source projects - sometimes under our name, often on behalf of our clients.

  • Minds in the Cloud

    As this is a video portal, we decided that the best CMS for this was... YouTube. Editors could change the content of the site simply by controlling it in YouTube. And look closely... the clouds move.
