Founded by Web 2.0 veteran, James Gillmore, FaceySpacey was born in the hay-day of both MySpace and Facebook--when both were the pinnacle of social networking. That’s where we get our name. Though Facebook has become the one to rule them all and MySpace is long gone, FaceySpacey remains the development shop you’re looking for with the years of social networking experience it takes to turn that twinkle of an idea in your head into software application innovations. In other words, we build startups soup to nuts for our clients, and help them become successful.
What we represent is something very special: we take dreams (typically software applications), turn them into rocket ships, supply all the parts you’re not sure you need yet, piece them together into a cohesive application via methodologies we’ve spent years honing, and help you take it to the stars for other to see and become a part of.
To learn more about us, we invite you to an overview of our process. We believe there are 4 core ingredients any startup needs to succeed. Click the links below to learn our process for each of them:
There are several schools of thought when it comes to how much you pre-plan your application and how much your developers develop it with agility, i.e. according to so-called “agile” practices. Our take is that “Agile” has been misinterpreted by many a failed startup as an excuse to operate without a proper plan. Learn More
At FaceySpacey, branding could almost be considered part of the speccing phase. We put design first. We put the user interface your users will use first. Many development shops will produce so called “wire frames.” If you’re familiar with them, you probably are seeing in your head layouts with little black square lined boxes representing elements on a page, e.g. a rectangle in the top left for a video player, and more rectangles in a column down the right column representing related users or other users. What we’ve determined is that these specs will be completely different if you have the opportunity to design them. Learn More
The coding phase is the phase you, as one of our clients, can’t wait to start. It’s also potentially the most costly phase--because of the cost of multiple professional software developers we put on your project. The high cost of professional development is a fact other firms like to deny. FaceySpacey, on the other hand, brings this fact to plain view and confronts it with you in order to actually accomplish the best you can get for your money.Learn More
Ever heard of “the Marketing Mix”? I.e. the 4ps? Price, Promotion, Place (aka distribution), and Product. Those are the famous 4 ingredients to a good marketing plan. While we will also help you concoct a promotion and distribution plan, the aspect of marketing we focus on is the Product. In other words, all the speccing/branding we do (mainly the speccing) leads to a product the market wants, and people will eat up. Learn More
Coming from the agency world, I’m a highly demanding client who doesn’t settle for anything less than an exquisite execution of what I ask for. FaceySpacey was entirely obliging to my every need and went above and beyond in creating www.DrTATTOFF.com. I was extremely impressed with their attention to detail, the little guidance they required, and their encouragement of collaboration. But I was (and still am) most excited about FaceySpacey’s understanding that my website isn’t just pretty – it has a job to do. FaceySpacey was most enthusiastic about creating a site that drives my business forward in a trackable way, and at the end of the day (or the line of code) that’s what matters.
When I first came to James Gillmore with the concept for CrimeTV.com I knew within the first conversation that FaceySpacey would build the ultimate Platform for CrimeTV. James Gillmore's forward thinking and innovative strategy was far better then the dozen companies courting us to build our crime entertainment portal. Working with James has enabled me to get the real perspective to the web 2.0 industry and helped to position CrimeTV.com for the big leagues. The planning and build out of the site was an extremely amazing processes and I had a great time working with him. FaceySpacey is what the New Silicon Alley is all about, they bring know how of what best West Coast programmes are know for with a New York attitude. I highly recommended FaceySpacey to anyone who wants to go BIG!
