In 1996, our team first organized as Image Graphix - a Philadelphia- based boutique design studio for the fledgling world wide web. Within a few years, our designers were on the bleeding edge of the e-commerce revolution and branching out into systems integration and server infrastructure for clients throughout the Delaware Valley region. Rapid expansion and a growing team meant that Image Graphix-built PCs were available in multiple retailers and our web services were helping power the first "dot-com" revolution.
Unfortunately, the end of that first era also spelled the end of this chapter in our story. After many regional "dot-com" startups began to fall to earth, the Computer Hardware side of our startup was spun into a separate company, Phi Beta Gib, that specialized in Linux-based servers, workstations and home PCs. Image Graphix reorganized into Galie Media, with the initial family of designers resuming control and a new focus on solutions for not just web e-commerce but managing the multiple platforms that powered online brands.
Within the last decade, new social media tools and the coming "app revolution" on smartphones were dramatically changing the landscape of the online presence needed for all businesses. As these new platforms developed, it was more than just web sites but the need to integrate with social media platforms and mobile applications that drove a new wave of projects from the small to the extraordinary.
From simple static pages to dynamic applications, a good web site tells your story and invites visitors to know more about you and your brand.
Moving your brand from the computer screen to your customer's pocket should be a cornerstone of your online plan, a native app is an essential part.
The best online presence means nothing without reliable, high performance infrastructure behind every request - can your site handle the load?
From social media to influencers to visitor engagement, online brands should be able to reach their customers whereever and whenever needed.
Unlike many others, we are committed to providing you with content management solutions based on open standards instead of proprietary lock-in.
The best web engagement also requires the best communication from secure e-mail to reliable protection from SPAM and malware traffic.
