Website Design & Development Expertise Areas

No matter what business challenges you face, we have tech knowledge required to secure your success and competitiveness within your industry.

Custom Website From Scratch

In today’s world, no business will survive without a website. Of course, there are tools that allow you to build one without coding. But if you want a scalable product that can later be equipped with new features or changed alongside with the business concept then you need custom website design. Content Management Systems (CMS) we build with are easy to use and take Search Engine Optimization (SEO) into account to make it part of your content marketing strategy.

UI/UX Design

Devvela is one of the best web design agencies in Chicago. We create web design that is user-friendly, looks beautiful and functions flawlessly. Our designers create user experiences your website visitors will love at once, no matter which device they use to view it.

Web Development Technologies and Solutions

Engineers of our website design company master the most cutting edge technologies in building custom web products.

Responsive Website Development

Our engineers apply HTML5, CSS3 and JavaScript to create responsive web design. RWD allows websites to look similarly awesome on any platform. Whether you view such website on desktop, tablet, or smartphone, it adopts to any screen allowing the same amazing experiences.

Mobile Web App Development

We build mobile web applications that look and behave just like native mobile apps. Using technologies such as React Native, AngularJS, Ionic, Cordova (ex. PhoneGap), Xamarin, Sencha Touch, jQuery Mobile, Devvela engineers create experiences that are hard to tell from the ones built with mobile tech (but we develop native apps, too).

Interactive User Interfaces

Our front-end developers apply technologies such as ReactJS, NodeJS, AngularJS and other javascript frameworks to build interfaces that interact with your users in a simple and friendly way. Such interfaces are created to meet the expectations of your specified target audience thus boosting average time spent on your website and increasing customer loyalty. We know how to have your end-users engaged.

Web APIs

Professional back-end developers at Devvela apply REST and JSON as message exchange format to build APIs for mobile and web applications. APIs facilitate maintenance of current functionality and introduction of new features. With web API built, your apps can only talk to the database through it.

Software Architecture

We use different design patterns and technology stacks depending on the application, what it needs, and how it behaves. This allows designing software architecture that is best for your web product. Most advanced frameworks are used for that.

Cloud Development

Devvela engineers provide expertise at developing complex cloud solutions. This allows for building secure, well-performing and, most important, highly scalable web applications. When the number of users of your website starts to grow resources provided by cloud computing allow to scale up painlessly and save your money.

3rd Party Integration

Today, you can’t probably imagine a powerful website without 3rd party services integrated. Whether it’s eCommerce, blog or news website, there are well-established solutions that meet your platform’s needs. Devvela engineers painlessly integrate client website with all major 3rd party applications such as PayPal, Stripe, Amazon Web Services, Google Calendar, Google Maps, Google Forms, Twitter, Instagram and other social media and services.

Quality Assurance

Before we release your website, our QA engineers conduct thorough research on possible errors and bugs. By testing, we apply the most advanced tools to leave no issue unnoticed. Fixes are mostly quick and unproblematic.

Website Development Methodology

We treat every project individually considering client’s special needs and requirements. However, our preferred software development methodology is Agile, and we strongly recommend that our clients keep to Lean business model. Since 2007, we’ve secured technical competitiveness for a lot of web startups, so we’re well aware of how they are to be built and launched.
