Drupal is a free, community-built website development tool. It allows you to easily create, update and manage a website without requiring a lot of technical know-how. Drupal uses a point-and-click interface to let you add pages, menus, images and file uploads and it enforces security, so you can apply permissions to different kinds of users. As your website grows, it’s easy to add custom features from the thousands of free modules you can download. Drupal is highly regarded as one of the best website frameworks available and is rapidly gaining adoption all over the globe.
WordPress started as just a blogging system, but has evolved to be used as full content management system and so much more through the thousands of plugins and widgets and themes, WordPress is limited only by your imagination.
Shopify is a fully hosted, cloud-based commerce platform that lets you start, grow, and manage a business. Create and customize an online store. Sell in multiple places, including web, mobile, social media, online marketplaces, brick-and-mortar locations, and pop-up shops. Manage products, inventory, payments, and shipping.
Do you have a digital brand strategy in place which outlines the essential elements of any interactive design deliverable? If not, you could be wasting precious time and money. Brunello can create a sound digital brand framework for you that will help expedite design development and insure a strong, effective brand representation online.
Who are your target audiences? What do they do online? Through audience research we create profiles based on mindset and behaviors. We ask questions which help uncover needs, desires, motivators and intent. We can help you communicate with your desired target audiences online. Getting what you want, begins with understanding your consumer.
Are your online competitors the same as your offline competition? Understanding who you're competing with, when, for what, and at what cost is integral to online success. Knowing where to differentiate, where opportunities are and how to improve upon your current position within the landscape prior to beginning work is useful information.
Do you know how your current site is performing? If you're thinking of making any changes to an existing website, and you haven't already, you should have a thorough site assessment performed. Brunello will find meaningful areas for improvement, outline considerations for new development work and provide valuable information which can be used to benchmark future website initiatives.
We have experience running focus-group style usability testing, analytics analysis and one-on-one user interviews. Our methods uncover areas of opportunity, ways for improvement and provide a baseline of useful information to gauge project success after subsequent changes are made. Usability testing is recommended at any time in a project: when new needs are discovered, technology changes, trends emerge, or any time significant changes are made to a website.
Our research methods include surveys for stakeholders who are within the organization as well as key clients and supporters who are outside. This approach insures all voices have been heard, everyone feels vested in the project. Internal support of an online effort whether it be a redesign, a new website, a new app or the like, is critical to the success of the initiative. This input is critical to the success of Design & Development in that it highlights the needs, desires and expectations of stakeholders as well.
Site architecture and wireframes map out the content and functionality of a site, focusing on usability and requirements. All work is presented digitally. Since final solutions will be experienced in that manner we feel it's important to start simulating that experience as early in the process as possible.
A CMS is designed to simplify the publication of web content to web sites and mobile devices. It allows content creators to update and submit content without requiring any technical knowledge. Brunello creates custom CMS solutions for clients using our own Bruno platform, Drupal and WordPress.

Responsive Web Design (RWD) is an approach to design and development that utilizes fluid grids and media queries to render the layout and display of a website for optimal viewing experiences across a range of devices–from a single codebase. Responsive design is here to stay and we approach every project with this mindset.
Brunello has extensive experience developing microsites which are individual web pages or clusters of pages which function as a supplement to a primary website and usually have their own domain name. With Drupal, we have the ability to deploy hundreds of uniquely themed microsites for the same client, all running from a single codebase and shared database tables.
Native apps provide a highly focused and optimized experience. Brunello can help you plan, design, build and deploy applications for iOS and Android.
Brunello uses open source technologies including PHP/MySQL to create complex solutions while following industry best practices.
