Zodiac Media is a small web development company based in South London. We are capable of delivering complete websites, from customer brief to site launch, but our real strength lies in our frontend and backend development skills. We use PHP as our backend development language and have many years of experience delivering successful websites using PHP and other open source technologies. We deliver innovative solutions for clients quickly and cost effectively.

Core competencies:

- In particular we use the Symfony2 PHP framework for our bespoke project work.

• Frontend development
- We create accessible sites using techniques such as progressive enhancement and graceful degradation
- We’re adept with cross browser compatibility techniques
- We’re very skilled in writing JavaScript - both ‘pure’ and with libraries such as jQuery
- We like all our sites to use responsive techniques, resulting in a better experience on small screen devices
- We prefer to use SASS or LESS for our styling work

• Drupal development
- Both theming and bespoke functionality development via custom modules

• Magento e-commerce development
- Store design and bespoke functionality development via custom extensions
- Store catalogue population using bulk import scripts
