Behind the Scenes
Mindmaps for App System Design
Mindmapping is an effective way we transform thoughts and ideas into actionable documentation. It is a crucial step in the beginning of a project.
Sketch Interface Concepts
Sketching is great to test ideas and weed out the ones that won’t work.
Web App Development Process
Our development is driven by the goal to create a fast, reliable and secure application that surpasses the end consumer’s expectations.
Test and Launch Final Application
Seeing the final product in action, shows how a great idea, executed by an experienced team with a proven process, yields fantastic results.
State of the Art Web Application
Design-wise, the main idea of the app is to bring the content to the front by eliminating distractions and showing only what’s necessary. From the very first screen, the app’s user interface reveals only the things that are relevant at that particular moment.
The Flowmail newsletter editor is the quintessence of the product and its core element. Its power is in its simplicity:
- zero distractions — focus on your content instead of the interface.
- no room for mistakes — intentional scarcity of design options results in your emails looking clean and elegant.
- fast and easy to use — save your time for more important things in life.
Simply beautiful newsletters
All Flowmail emails:
- are optimized for mobile and tablet
- work great on desktop, too
- are CASL and Can-Spam compliant
- look awesome!
An effortless experience for business users.
Creating a newsletter has never been easier. An email campaign can be launched from your mobile phone, tablet or laptop. Flowmail provides an unparalleled experience that simplifies the busy lives of business owners and marketers.
Mobile-first user interface start to finish.
Flowmail was meticulously designed as a cross-platform application to ensure seamless usage across all major device categories. More importantly, it’s not just the application but the newsletters that are optimized for mobile-first interaction, resulting in open and click-through ratios that are 25% higher than most other emails.
A Modern Scalable Web Stack.
Flowmail has to be scalable. It has to remain online and delivering email no matter what. It also can't stand still and has to be steadily improved. So, while the first version produced by Pieoneers was in production serving the new users, the new, in-house Flowmail team began writing the second version in Elixir with the Phoenix Framework.
"Flowmail is all about simplicity and ease of use, and therefore UI and UX play a critical role within our application. With the help of Pieoneers, we have been able to create an application that balances features and usability so that anyone can create an effective email newsletter.
