Technology & delivery
Chrometoaster produces highly interactive and accessible user interfaces with a focus on performance. Unlike many creative agencies, we are full-blooded technologists. In our world, art is nothing without engineering. We're technology agnostic, and although there's a ton of ingenuity in our technical implementations, we firmly believe it should be transparent to the naked eye. We are happy to work with third party technology providers where it suits our clients, and have produced great things this way.
Technologies we work with include:
- Back-end development using open source technologies including PHP, Ajax, JSON, XML, APIs
- SilverStripe CMS, Common Web Platform and SilverStripe Platform
- Mobile devices
- Apple registered iPhone App developer
- Android application development
