Website Design & Development Expertise Areas
We’re a website development agency that builds tools, platforms, experiences and beauty. We’ve worked on a lot of projects and it has never been just about creating a simple promo website.
Powerful Web Tools
We’ve upgraded a lot of websites for established businesses of all sizes adding new powerful complex features to help them grow, whether it’s custom reservation system or elevator configuration tool. 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.
Complex Web Startups
Your MVP is all about complex web technology? Devvela knows how to bring the craziest ideas to life through website design and development. We’re experienced in building web platforms that meet very special requirements and achieve the most unexpected goals.
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
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
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.
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.
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.
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.

Why Devvela Is the Best Web Development Partner
Flexible Engagement Models
We offer you to choose between the two engagement models:
A team of web developers work zeroes in on your project. No interruptions.
Time & Materials
Web development costs depend on hours required to execute the tasks on your project.
We’re not the cheapest website development company. But the quality we provide outvalue the cost of developing a website with us.
Unlike many other web development agencies, we provide more than just code - we want to make sure you achieve your business goals. Sticking to Agile methodology allows us to launch early so that you can quickly take the product to the market, gather feedback and see if there is a demand for it. This greatly reduces the risk of burning resources to create a product that nobody wants.
