A Unique Challenge
Starting from Scratch
Building a new idea into a product, brand and – ultimately – a thriving company is a challenge. It’s exactly the kind of challenge that we welcome here at Gigantic Media. That’s why we jumped at the opportunity to help the GYROSPHERE team turn their nascent idea into a fully-functioning social media platform and brand.
First, we developed a basic look and feel that represented the brand and began to shape the specifications for the web application. By building in some design elements from the beginning, we were able to better visualize the final application.
Once we had the specifications complete and a set of mockups for the various screens, we began the process of evaluating technologies for the build. Our team chose to build the application with Laravel, a framework built on PHP. This allowed our team to build a highly scalable, flexible, modular application.
From the beginning, the gentlemen at GYROSPHERE had a clear vision. We were able to work closely with their team, but were allowed the freedom to implement our design and development expertise in order to produce a superior interface and end-user experience. Not only were we able to accomplish our client’s goals, we did so on a tight schedule. As any entrepreneur can attest, when you’ve got a vision there’s no time to waste. Time from development start to launching the GYROSPHERE app was six weeks.
