Our Process

Getting to know the project
And the client. Establishing a clear communicative relationship is top priority from the very first meeting.

The Magic
After client approval of the mock ups we'll go off the grid for at least a couple weeks and delve into the trenches of code.

The Final Product

To be frank, you’re not going to find any concrete 10-step program here. Fundamentally, our process is rooted in ridiculously dedicated customer service. Moreover, it’s about providing the best possible product for our client’s app, website, and/or design needs. In its most distilled form; our methodology revolves around consulting with the client to assess their goals, developing a plan of attack and putting the plan into motion.

We don’t believe in inundating anyone (including ourselves) with any unnecessary steps, which will ultimately cloud the final product. We simply pride ourselves on professionalism and producing measurable results. Check out our case studies for more of the finer nuances of our process.

“I came to Tony and PJ with an abstract creative vision and complex back end structure. They were able to not only deliver high quality product, but provided invaluable insight with regard to overall direction of the site.”
