We've got ideas,
We play well with others. Many of our clients may employ a third-party designer, or they may be designers themselves. We can turn your design into a fully-functional, responsive website.
Let's talk about how we could lend a hand to your next project with design, development, search engine optimization, and other services.
Using WordPress and Other Services
We pay serious attention to all components of your web project. One of the first components in the planning phase is deciding which platform to use.
The advantages of using WordPress are obvious. It offers a large community of users and many great, responsive design themes. One big advantage of using Wordpress is the vast index of Wordpress Plugins that can add a huge array of different capabilities to your website. Another advantage is that many people are already familiar with the WordPress interface. It's become one of the most widely used web platforms ever.
Using a Third-Party Service like Squarespace
DIY services like Squarespace are great for basic, entry-level web sites such as personal portfolios, vacation sites, wedding sites and other instances with simple requirements. They look good, they are affordable, but their options for expanded functionality or custom development can be limited. We can help minimize the frustration while maximizing the possibilities.
Using The Bright Bridge Studios Codebase
We have evolved our own custom codebase over the years to be a lighter-footprint alternative to heavy systems such as WordPress, Drupal, and Joomla, which by intent attempt to be all things to all users. We have developed a content management system that allows us to easily customize all aspects of a clients' site, including ecommerce modules and other custom features.
Our codebase offers a simple-to-use Content Management System in a security-conscious package. We have designed and built this system from the ground up and we can adapt it to be anything that you need. We’ve used it to build simple, inexpensive sites for clients, and have also adapted it to build extensive, complex enterprises.
We are the creators of Hack at It, where hackers from all over the globe attempt to breach the walls and ramparts of our codebase for cash prizes. We're happy to report that no one has been able to hack it yet.
APIs and other dynamic data sets can provide websites and web applications with catalogs of data: real estate listings, drug interactions, and more. Custom integration with an API allows your users to search and view this information. This is the process we've used to build many real estate and realtor websites that organize and present searchable catalogs of real estate listings.
Twitter Bootstrap and Responsive Design
Our codebase (and many of our favorite WordPress themes) use a framework called Bootstrap that was created by developers at Twitter. It's a responsive framework that includes an impressive array of great tools such as pop-up modals, accordion menus, slideshows, responsive video, and more. All of this functionality is supported by a huge community, it's responsive and it works on any device. The best part is that it's baked into virtually all of our sites.
