Working with us

We work with our clients in three basic ways: on large, one-time web and video projects, through ongoing retainer agreements, and by providing services on-demand for discrete issues.

We take a rigorous approach to managing all our work:

Gears

For large projects, we utilize the agile methodology (specifically the scrum framework). Our process is split into three phases. The first phase encompasses all work necessary to plan the project and launch a prototype website. The second phase includes any custom work necessary to add functionality and design to the site. The final phase is a rigorous testing and launch process. All large project work is managed through Redbooth, our project management tool.

Handshake

Our favorite way of working with organizations is through an ongoing retainer relationship. Not only does this offer clients a reduced rate, but this close working relationship allows us to provide the best strategic advice and work product. Our retainer clients also work with us through Redbooth.

Tools

Finally, we maintain a support portal on Zendesk, where any organization with small, discrete requests can get immediate assistance. We offer all our services, including video production, front-end development, design, or even server troubleshooting.
