Some of our clients come to us with a fixed idea of how they want their website to work. Others want us to tell them the best way to present their content from start to finish. We’re comfortable working with you wherever you’re at in the design stage. We’ll help you put the finishing touches on a design or we’ll come up with the best way to tell your story.
We specialize in content—full stop. We develop fully compliant HTML5 sites and apps using the latest web technologies, and we develop gold-standard systems to manage your content, so you never run out of ways to showcase your work.
No use being shy about it: we’re web nerds. We’re able to guide your project from A to Z. Our team includes experts in user interface and graphic design, editorial content, CMS design and deployment, and marketing and search engine optimization. And we won’t baffle with jargon and bafflegab while we get it done. You’ll be in control the entire time.
Built around the creative partnership of three gold seal-approved creative professionals with wildly varied and complementary skill sets, Socialtech is uniquely suited to bring the Web to life in surprising and innovative ways.
Luc Mikelsons is the founder and project lead of Socialtech. A creative director, web designer and front-end programmer based in Montreal, Luc has over ten years of experience in online strategy and web development. He brings a unique perspective to every project he tackles and is always hunting out better ways of translating new concepts into highly functional and refreshingly interactive content. He believes that good design doesn’t let usability fall by the wayside but great design will improve the way something is used.
Dylan Young is the editorial, audience and content director of Socialtech. He is also a consulting editor and front-page specialist at Yahoo!. For nearly two decades, Dylan has distinguished himself as a true content expert, craftily working in multiple fields at any given time. He has designed print magazines cover-to-cover, won literary prizes and even been nominated for a Webby Award. Dylan believes that good content strategy is the cornerstone of good audience strategy—and that the best content strategy is always about telling the right story, well.
Adrian Duyzer is the technical director of Socialtech and web director at Factor[e] Design Initiative. Adrian has over a decade of professional programming and project management experience, with a focus on complex application development and database design.
