Black Antelope is a digital creative agency based in Seattle, Washington, and Sacramento, California. We specialize in high-end design and development. We work with clients to turn ideas into reality, and we place equally heavy emphasis on design, implementation, and infrastructure performance.
We don’t really have one! We started off with Drupal, WordPress, and Joomla, and ever since we’ve kept on top of the latest frameworks and have kept learning. What you get with us is deep experience with a variety of approaches. It is our goal to steer a project in the right direction platform-wise, rather than shoehorn it into one that may not be a good fit. In terms of technologies, we are very adaptable. While we do have a lot of domain expertise in platforms such as Drupal, AngularJS, ReactJS, Node.js, CodeIgniter, Symfony and Google’s Go, it’s easy for us to hop into a new language and framework.
We have extensive experience with integrating 3rd party services such as Salesforce and Marketo, as well as experience designing and building custom APIs within Drupal and Symfony. Some of the projects we’ve worked on have required a hefty amount of data migration, and so we have a lot of experience with writing scripts from any kind of database into Drupal. Some other things we do a lot of are information architecture, interaction design, custom database design in MySQL / MongoDB / Apache Solr, geospatial indexing for location-relevant applications, e-commerce, social media integrations, branding and illustration, SEO, and responsive web design.
We started the agency in 2009 in the San Francisco Bay Area, and ever since then we’ve been engaged with creating elegant solutions for interesting projects and amazing clients. Nowadays our team hails from Seattle, Washington to Sacramento, California to London, England. Our approach to problem-solving is very organic and we use the best tools for the job. Sometimes it can mean an agile methodology and sometimes it can mean pure creativity. We are often pulled into a bigger team to augment architecture, engineering, and design capabilities. We also often stay involved with clients for the long haul, as a consistent and valuable technology partner.
