Preparing a digital project raises dozens of questions for any business. From sorting through what each business wants, to separating the needs and setting the goals for digital growth is the first step before making a plan.

We align your goals

Once we understand your company's position, trends in your industry and your expected outcome, we can help you organize a plan with the goals and milestones aligned towards that outcome.

We combine your needs

Next, we suggest the services needed to achieve each goal and set points of contact and timelines. The needs of a project vary widely and could involve the combination of one or any of our services.

We make it happen

Time to bring it together. We begin the design and development of the project, during which the goals and needs are revisited at regular intervals. This allows us to optimize the outcome even if the project has been delivered.

From our clients

Motionloops LLC

After doing business for a decade, we needed a team to overhaul our entire web sales and media delivery system. The Smiling Hippo has provided exceptional design, solid web and app programming combined with thoughtful recommendations on technical concepts. They allow us to grow our business using fast and friendly communication every single day - an arrangement I plan to continue for years to come.

Ron White, Founder

We are The Smiling Hippo

As long as the digital era continues to evolve, there is no such thing as "can’t be done”

“The Hippo first cracked a smile in 2005 with the creation of a small company that focused on small but challenging web projects. What made us different was that we never used ready-made systems or templates and we still don’t. We wanted to provide our clients with tailor-made solutions that completely met their needs and even though many times that involved long nights and little sleep, we loved it!"

The educational backgrounds of the company founders are in marketing and bioinformatics research, strange you might think, but so far they have helped us along, allowing us to creatively integrate those fields into our work. That’s what makes The Smiling Hippo so special, if you like, and pardon the cockiness. We’re always out on the look for things that have never been done before, using the tools at hand to create something different, applying existing methods to solve new problems, and always, always, growing. Our favorite projects are those that involve no predefined way of doing something.

We always go the extra mile
we treat each project as our own and always have one more thing to contribute
We suffer from extreme OCD
because the difference is in the details
We design intelligently
because looking good just isn't enough
We are fast and punctual
we have a thoroughly defined process for project delivery and a flexible workflow structure
We stay ravenous
our humble begining makes us always look for new ways to do things - and savor the things we have learned
We prefer long-term relationships
because it takes time to know someone enough to know what they are thinking - both big or small brands
