  • Gamification

    Concept Scoring

    Do you have an existing campaign concept or application? A live campaign that isn't performing to expectations? We can measure it against gamification best practices. Using our proprietary scoring method, we'll score your concept and provide a report with recommendations on how you can increase overall engagement.

    Game Design

    Looking to bring some gamification to your campaign, application or process? We'll work closely with your team to understand your player motivations and to define the game mechanics, dynamics and aesthetics that will make your idea a success. We'll create a Game Design Document that you can use to as a guide during creative development and the build.

  • User Experience

    Wireframes & User Flows

    Wireframing is our specialty. Working with your team - including strategy, creative & tech - we develop a UX Design Document that clearly describes what you're building. By providing a clear understanding of the project scope, this document helps your project stay on time and on budget. We have extensive experience wiring web sites (including mobile web & responsive), web apps, native mobile apps and CMS systems.

    Prototyping

    There's nothing like a fully functional prototype to test your concept. Our prototypes are built using HTML5 and we use JavaScript and Chrome's WebSQL to simulate the back-end, making the prototype feel like the real thing. To save you time & money, we can slice up and create well-formed HTML and CSS. This code can then be used pretty much as is for development (if you provide final creative).

  • Development

    Web Development

    If it can run in a browser, we can build it. From corporate web sites & blogs to applications integrated with social media & games, we can deliver. We are technology agnostic - our process starts with understanding your project before we select the technology that best fits your needs.
    We also specialize in custom WordPress themes & plug-ins and we can setup your WordPress site. We provide training so that you can manage your site.

    Mobile Development

    We're fanatic users of mobile apps and games. Whatever your mobile development needs, we'll work with you to make your ideas a reality.
