Design and development

Fingertips offers design and development services for Web, iPhone, iPad, and Android.

Full projects

On most projects, the scope of our work is full lifecycle; from initial requirements gathering all the way to production, as well as full depth; from front-end human interface design deep down into the back-end architecture.

Expert help

We’re also available to get projects in trouble back on track. First we perform a code audit and identify organizational issues that might have adversely affected progress and quality. Then we’ll improve, redesign, refactor and rewrite until the project is back up to standard.

Design experience

Our experience with the design process makes us an ideal partner for design and communication agencies without in-house development resources. We’ve found that design teams can save a lot of time and frustration by collaborating with developers who get their way of working and who share their focus on the end-user experience.

  • Fingertips was one of the first design and development consultancies worldwide to use Ruby on Rails for client projects way back in the summer of 2004.
  • Apart from numerous fixes and enhancements, developers from Fingertips have contributed major components to Ruby on Rails. These include Unicode support in ActiveSupport::Multibyte and nested models and mass assignment with ActiveRecord::AutosaveAssociation and ActiveRecord::NestedAttributes.
  • With our Rails ‘morning coffee’ meetings and ‘show and tell’ events, we brought together local Ruby developers which in turn kicked off the Ruby on Rails community in The Netherlands.
  • In the spring of 2009, Fingertips organized Ruby on OS X, a conference about building Mac OS X apps with Ruby.
  • Fingertips takes an active role in the promotion of HTML5, CSS3, JavaScript, Ruby, MacRuby, Objective-C and related technologies as well as methodologies like iterative design and automated testing through Open Source software projects, speaking, training courses, and day-to-day community interaction on mailing lists, forums, and Twitter.




We’ve worked on projects for companies and organizations as diverse as:
