Friends of The Web designs and develops custom web and mobile applications with Ruby on Rails, React, Solidus, and Swift.
Our interdisciplinary team consists of designers, software developers, one astrophysicist, one English major, and one type designer.
Our process is driven by a clearly defined objective for our clients and their customers. We ask difficult questions. We pride ourselves on our holistic approach and strive to comprehend every aspect of each project we work on. Through close collaboration, our designers understand technical possibilities and limitations and our engineers understand the purpose behind each design decision.
We use a wide variety of modern languages and frameworks and are always looking for an opportunity to try something new. Current preferred technologies include:

The resulting prototype can be used for presentations, user testing, or simply internal evaluation before beginning an extensive project. More Info...
