What to expect from working with us?
1 .A highly experienced and specialized team
We deliver. The evidence: the more than 150 projects we did in the past 18 years, for a variety of clients.
The web is our specialty. We're not one of those agencies offering a hodgepodge of services. We prefer to focus on one thing and to excel in it.
We also teach about what we do. Being in contact with students allows us to constantly reflect on the fundamentals of our profession.
2 .A direct, personal relationship
No unnecessary project managers. No subcontracting. You won't be treated like a number here. You'll talk directly to us - the people who do the actual work. You'll have a personal relationship with us and at every stage it will be perfectly clear what we're working on.
3 .Durable results
Needs evolve and situations change. That's why we build flexible, modular websites that can stand the test of time. We make sure it's easy for you (and for us!) to make changes later on. You can count on us when that day comes. Some of the work we did has been online for 10 years.
Furthermore, our code is always up to date with current standards. We follow SEO guidelines that will ensure Google indexes your site properly.
4 .Control over your content
Clients often ask us if they will be able to update their sites themselves, without intervention from our side. For us this is self-explanatory, so here we say it out loud: our goal is to give you complete control over your content. We normally use an open source CMS system like Drupal or WordPress. There are many other options, including a developing a tailor made CMS from scratch.
Our approach and vision
sensible use of technology
Our projects are built upon a solid technical foundation: modern web standards, responsive design, and tried and tested open-source projects like Drupal, Solr, WordPress ... We use new technology only if it makes sense for your project. No need to follow every trend just because it's new.
Our vision of design is one that supports and reinforces your content. We're well-versed in translating ideas into the correct format. We favour functional design—design that reveals and highlights the structure and content. No unnecessary decoration.
Our work is always tailor-made. We generally avoid pre-baked solutions. Each project is unique, and we are convinced that it's better to organize your content starting from scratch instead of fitting it into existing templates.
Our way of working
1 .Clear expectations
We'll sit down and listen to your needs and expectations. Once we have all the information, we'll write up a detailed offer in which we explain our vision for your project, with respect for your requirements, budget and timing. You'll know exactly what you'll get and how much it will cost - no surprises.
2 .Phases and feedback moments
We work in phases. The exact process depends on the type of project, and you will get a clear overview in our quote. Each phase has a feedback moment. This way we keep sailing on the same boat.
3 .Prototyping is crucial
After setting up the preliminaries, we generally start with clickable wireframes and prototypes. This is an important and cost-effective way to make sure that what you had in mind will actually work as a website or an application.
Once we all agree on the structure, we'll start working on the implementation. This includes the design of the front-end and the CMS or back-end programming. These processes can be ran sequentially or in parallel - it depends on the project. Extensive testing is included in each phase, and we make sure that everything works well on different devices (phones, tablets, computers) before going online.
5 .The future
We closely monitor your site the first month after its launch. We're ready to help out where we can. Depending on our agreement, we will update your site regularly to make sure it shines at any point in time.
