We doWeb Design and Development

Our philosophy

Semantic, compliant, and accessible code. Intuitive, beautiful, and responsive designs. Secure, reliable and fast solutions.

This is our mantra.

Sure, we may make it look easy, but it’s hard work making the difficult look effortless—and that’s what we strive for. We believe in doing things right the first time; taking time to understand the goals of the project first, before any pixel gets pushed, or any code gets committed. Once everyone is aligned (and only then) do we proceed through a process we’ve developed over two decades and hundreds of websites. We approach design, coding, and development as a craft—no templates here. Like architects, artists or engineers, we take pride not just in what we build, but how.

Why clients come to us

We don’t own a cookie cutter. The websites we build are unique and distinct, crafted for clients, big and small, that value insight, efficiency and squeaky clean code. We use our strategic, creative and technical expertise to triangulate more comprehensive solutions, always analyzing the project from every angle. Because of this tested, rock solid process, we often eliminate problems by anticipating them before they occur. Our stuff is air tight, and it does what it’s supposed to do.

Our history

We’ve been deep into the web since the very beginning. Over the years, we’ve developed sites for brands as diverse as 1-800-Flowers, Stephen King, Sara Lee, Ronzoni, and even a certain Global Financial Institution. Millennium was conceived as an interactive agency from the very beginning, and although we’ve grown, we stayed true to our original vision. We’ve navigated the ever-changing digital landscape for decades—from Interactive CDs with Director, to the birth (and eventual death) of Flash, to static, liquid, adaptive, and now responsive web design, to smartphones and interactive apps.

What sets Millennium apart from other digital agencies

For one, our solutions are fully ADA compliant. We believe that your content should be available to everyone, regardless of physical or mental ability. We have an entire section on this site dedicated to Accessibility if you’d like to know more.

We also have the technical chops to bring to life any design decision we make. We write our own code, have our own hosting centers, and thoroughly understand each step of the web development process from its first napkin sketch to its launch on a secure domain.

We’re flexible. Our job is to make you, our clients, look good and have a smooth, successful experience during your web project. We’ve worked in waterfall, agile and in-between. We are constantly bettering ourselves with design critiques, post-mortem reviews, peer-code reviews, and dedicated Smoke testing, QA and client UAT runs.

Our process

We start every project the same way—by asking the same question: What are the goals? We drill down to the nitty-gritty by collaborating with, and understanding, every aspect of our clients’ expectations and desires before we dive into the build. Those key insights discovered allow us to nail it…the first time.

Depending on the project or context, at times certain steps can be eliminated or blended. For example, we frequently work hand-in-hand with many top-tier agencies and design firms that need the development and technical firepower only Millennium can deliver. In these cases, we work closely with external design teams to offer our UX and development insights, ensuring that what is designed and represented to the client can actually be flawlessly built and delivered.

  • PHP
  • Drupal 7, 8
  • Symfony 2,3

We also stay current with the venerable workhorses and new kids on the block:

  • Adobe Photoshop

We play well with other agencies too

Web development is a team sport, and we work very well with other agencies (such as Droga5, Vector B, Quigley Simpson, McGarryBowen, Rosetta, and more) to provide the technical expertise that brings their interactive concepts to life. We can do the same for you whether you find yourself short of in-house technical skills, require a secure hosting partner, or just want a competent guiding force in the co-pilot seat. Our expertise becomes your expertise, even when we stay behind the scenes. Think of us as your very own Cyrano de Bergerac with mad development skills.
