artists are colonizing Buenos Aires and
transforming this sprawling metropolis
into a throbbing hothouse of cool.
Argentina has long had the potential
to develop an IT industry...Argentina
ranks first among Latin American

“ Like Prague in the 1990s, Buenos
Aires offers chic on the cheap and
is attracting scores of musicians,
filmmakers, journalists, designers
and even sitcom writers from
abroad.[...] But this city has an
intense cultural rhythm that you
just can’t find anywhere else

foreigners are taking part.

Liquid Designers is a full-service interactive agency with a focus on emerging open source technologies. Located in Buenos Aires,
we employ U.S. citizens in order to eliminate any communication barriers with our U.S.-based clients. We not only provide a full range
of services, but can do so in-house without the use of freelancers, thereby providing clients with reliability and peace of mind. Our full
range of services encompasses design, development, and marketing, along with strategic input from experienced U.S. entrepreneurs
and consultants. All project management is conducted by in-house native English speakers.

Tools we use to execute your project
Skype is one of several tools we use to hold webcam conferences and
text chats with clients. We use Skype’s call forwarding service to transfer to
our landlines, thereby ensuring a quality line regardless of bandwidth issues.
Trac is an open source, integrated wiki and tracking system for software
development and programming projects. We use Trac to outline every step
of a project, allowing project management down to the very last detail. The
minimalistic style allows for easy adaptation to any project our team takes
on, whether it is software-related or coding and programming. The timeline
feature gives an overview of a project, while the road map allows milestones
to be set and monitored for effective completion.
Google Suite is a web-based software package that includes Google
spreadsheets, documents, websites and applications which together allow
us to work internally as well as with clients. We also use Google project
management applications to organize and integrate all current projects.
Thanks to Google Suite we are able to provide our clients with outstanding
and timely service, always in collaboration with the Agile methodology.
Scrum Development Methodology
Agile software development uses an iterative and incremental process that encourages a collaborative relationship
between the client, the scrum-certified project manager, and the technical team. Results come early and often, allowing clients to track
our progress throughout the development process, rather than just receiving a product at its final stage.
By using Agile
– Our entire team is involved in the quoting and planning of projects, bringing together our experience and knowledge to analyze a
client’s needs and goals.
– Our project managers work with clients to understand their priorities, so these items can be accomplished first.
– Our team holds brief meetings at the start of every day to evaluate progress.
– Our project managers not only understand the day-to-day of the project, but also grasp the big picture.
– Our project managers are constantly reviewing and planning with the next stage of development in mind.
Agile allows our team at Liquid Designers to incorporate new information, find errors early, and respond to the issues that can and do
arise during a project.
We offer senior designers who specialize in graphic design, renderings, flash and html design. We have the flexibility
to make corporate sites or spectacular interactive sites. When approaching a project, we start by researching a client’s
business, market, and competition, creating the visual representation that best achieves the client’s goals.

Blending Android’s mobile phone and tablet with Symfony’s PHP open source system allows Liquid Designers to
leverage its current customers’ web implementations, adding functionality to talk to back-end databases in ways that
browsers can’t. We believe that Android applications will take web-based interactive graphical applications to a new
level. Given that our Android development is led by one of the pioneers of Java, we are confident that we can harness
this technology to its maximum potential for our clients.
Using Apple’s proprietary yet elegant system, we have also developed a strong capability in Objective-C for
iPhone development. Being able to build on these two popular mobile platforms allows us to help clients make a
comprehensive mobile strategy which looks at development from both a technical and a marketing perspective.
Portfolio Mobile Development: Android
We are creating a Symfony-based language community, and we thought it would be beneficial to complement this
community with a vocabulary and verb conjugation application. We built this application in Android, which smoothly syncs
it with our website’s database while allowing us to enter new markets with minimal additional backend development.
