03 Web Platforms
The branding of a project can, at times, make the difference between success and failure. On a daily basis we see giant brands like Apple, Microsoft, Google, Amazon and many others who are easily identified by their branding. It is enough to see their logo on a product and you know exactly who they are. Your project needs to replicate this strength in branding, retain a strong visual "voice" and we have the knowledge and expertise at hand to set the tone and let it sing.
The colours, the shapes and how they mix together, how they transition throughout your platform are the things that make people remember you as a company and return for a sale or discussion. We research your target market, we define trends and we apply the best practices to make every project easy to use, easy to learn and highly intuitive for your audience.
We take pride in our ability to push the limits of design, so we love it when you, our client and partner "go crazy" and push our boundaries. We like what is new, we love innovation, we strive to get ahead of the trends and we invite you to challenge us to give your project a better view of what your digital footprint can be. The sky is truly the limit when it comes to our design!
We approach every project logically, learning your business needs and all the small details required by your project. We follow the process of building your software strategically, maximising the results while minimising the costs, so that you can enjoy a fully functional platform that takes your company to the next level.
Our unique and organic handling of your project gives you, the owner, a solution to the organically evolving business problem. We also test rigorously and continually using automated techniques to ensure that any new line of code doesn’t tamper with the integrity of any previously written functions. The net result is that each component offers business value and guarantees the solution flexes to your needs. You receive regular drops of tested code which add immediate value by lowering project failure risks and increasing the ROI potential.
Getting the requirements right will determine the success or failure of the project.
How the information is collected, documented and shared is paramount to project fulfilment. Doing it right will ensure that your requirements are understood by the development team and what they build is indeed what was intended. Yet there is no consensus in the software industry on a single best approach to go about this and as far as the mainstream is concerned, this remains a puzzle.
We help you gather the information, include the functional and technical details and mix them into a branded package that will be your project documentation. This way, you know that your final product is compliant and follows what you envision it to be.
Wireframe & Prototype
The wireframe of a project, also known as page schematic or screen blueprint, is a visual guide that represents the skeletal framework of your project. You can check how your project will work without being swayed by graphic elements and you can easily identify mistakes in the workflow.
One of the greatest advantages of wireframing is that it provides an early visual that can be used to review the functionality by anyone involved in the project.
Layout & UX Flows
Being technically correct does not automatically guarantee success for a software product. It must also be intuitive and easy-to-use by the target audience.
We apply a User-Centred Design approach which puts the user at the core of the whole design and development process. It ensures that the system functions are phrased around the terminology or language of its target.
This is an iterative approach where a number of “design plus feedback” cycles are repeated until the project achieves the intended usability. This is usually performed within a closed group of users and those users play a key role in ensuring their needs are accurately reflected in the final product.
We develop our software using the Agile Methodology to ensure that any mistakes are identified and handled as early in the project lifecycle as possible. This way we can focus on continuous improvement, scope flexibility, team input and delivering essential quality products.
We are capable to respond to the unpredictability of software development. Early identification and solving of any issues saves time and delivers a platform with increased stability.
Testing & QA
A project is not considered ready to be deployed on a Live server until it is properly checked during an Acceptance Testing stage. Although testing plays an active part of the Development stage, only after the development is completed, the project is tested solely from an end-user perspective. This is checked against the project requirements to confirm the software is indeed working as intended.
In simple terms, we identify and prevent the risks before they reach your target, thus saving you valuable time and money.
Once your software is approved as ready to deply, following the requirements, the only step left to take is to make it available to your users.
The deployment stage encompases all the processes involved in getting your software up and running properly in its environment, including installation, configuration, additional environment related tests and making the needed adjustments, so you can sit back, relax and let your innovative product speak for you and bring you business.
