Building a new idea into a product, brand and eventually, a thriving company, is a challenge. It’s exactly the kind of challenge that we welcome. That’s why we relished 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 specification 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 specification 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.

The time from development start to launching the app was six weeks.
