Here's a gorgeous coverflow display of some of our current websites on the internet. We code mainly in PHP or Python/Django, with all the interactive elements of jQuery, Ajax and CSS, with our PHP often deployed in the Wordpress framework.

Our latest pet projects on the develop are our very own Wordpress Woocommerce theme and a three part Python Django web application for small scale, organic farmers and homesteaders...


We design in raw code, in wordpress or in django, to enable full control in design, as well as complete ownership of your virtual real estate.
Design is completely dependent upon application and scope of vision, and with the latest web technologies, it can be literally anything you can imagine onto a computer screen. Raw code has very few limits.
From a simple storyboard, your site can utilize databases, interact with users with a web app, sell your warez in an online shop, or even be a medium of specialized social networking.
All of your existing social media platforms will also be seamlessly integrated to centralize all of your web presence onto your home page.


SEO is a thoroughly ingrained process of grooming the code of your website to be easily understandable by the search engine 'robots' that read and index it, in relation to similar sites, for competing for the holy grail of being listed on the first page of google searches.
These 'robots' are still computers, and they only receive information in one certain way, which must be complied with at every single instance. These instances include page titles, descriptions, keyword listings, keyword distribution in copy, filenames, links to and from the site in relation to other sites, all of which will hopefully be asserted by the number of returning visits. Your site content and SEO will be constantly updated in relation to your monthly in-depth analytics.


SEO ratings always favour new media, uploaded timeously and responsively to user demand. In order to keep your site fresh and exciting, there should optimally be a constant stream of new media being uploaded all the time. These measures will ensure that potential clients who have never met you, will know you as someone on the ball and active in your field.
For a competitive rate, we are available to manage content updates, as your SEO is heavily dependent on how this is done. Wordflow is as important as image clarity and relation. File names and sizes affect user experience. We are adept at graphic design, audio, video and copy creation and editing.
