We help companies make their next move.

We’re driven to create better digital experiences for your team and customers, whether that’s driven by a custom backend integration or a fresh new look for your brand. We love handling the work on the frontend or the backend so you can focus on improving your operations or your conversion rates—you know, the stuff that makes you 💰.

Our team is capable of solving almost any digital problem you can throw at us. If it turns out to be the rare case where we’re not the right fit, we’ll tell you.

Our Core Capabilities

After a few big projects, we became recognized for our Drupal expertise—some would say we are “top-Natch”. We’ve grown our expert engineering further into a full-service agency that specializes in multiple platforms, with a focus on Shopify Plus and Acquia Drupal.

Strategy

Strategy

From our inception, research and data have been core elements to how we improve digital experiences. We believe that that output of strategy is the first input of all our other work. Most of our projects involve some strategy work but we do offer standalone strategy if you’re looking to better understand your audience and what will help convert them.

Design

Design

Our designers work on projects ranging from small theme updates to complete redesigns. All design work is preceded by in-depth analysis so our design team knows what your customers need. We leverage Webflow, an in-browser design tool, to produce iterative live prototypes rather than PDFs. This means you can look and touch your future digital experience just like your customers will use it.

Engineering

Engineering

Our engineers have worked on some of the biggest sites in the world with millions of visitors a year. We’ve also worked on some of the most complex problems such as Mint and Quicken which both required custom solutions and fast turnaround times. After we’ve migrated and built your site, we can also continue to support your site, ensuring that your investment continues to grow your business.

Optimization

Optimization

We believe all work should be a continuous feedback loop. After our initial analysis, we design and build a solution based on what your audience and the data says to build. From there, we can continue to work with you to improve what is working and implement new strategies to drive traffic, engagement and most importantly, conversions.

What Your Project Will Likely Look Like

Most projects involve all four of our core capabilities. Each one is essential to delivering a digital experience that we are proud of—one that we feel confident addresses what your audience cares about and is crafted to better serve your team and drive online growth for your business.

Here’s an idea of what you’ll experience in each area.

Strategy

Before any code is written, or anyone draws on a white-board, our strategy team takes the time to listen. We listen to our clients and their customers. We let the data do the talking, and we listen then, too. We listen to the market, and we listen to competitors. Then, we move.

Analytics

We start with data and consider every metric before we make decisions. Our experience, from GA certification to Mixpanel implementation, allows us to deliver regardless of platform.

Persona Building

Sites and apps are designed to get users to act—to read, to signup, to buy. We work with our clients to understand the motivations of their users, both what makes them tick, and more importantly, what makes them act.

User Experience

We map out the user experience, literally creating an end-to-end narrative that helps our analysts, designers, and developers see (and fill) gaps.

Content Strategy

Once we know who we're targeting, what they need, and where the existing site is failing, we focus on how to deliver a new, meaningful experience that drives conversion.

Design

At Third & Grove, we design in-medium, which means that many clients never see a PDF or a PSD. Instead, they review creative in their web browser with live links, interactions, animations, breakpoints, and content. The output is faster, the review process is more productive, and the development is higher-fidelity.

An Iterative Process

Designing in-browser means that we can solicit meaningful feedback and make creative adjustments in real time, greatly reducing the time it takes to move from wireframes to fully functioning concepts.

Resolution Independent

A byproduct (or the product, rather) of designing in-browser means that all breakpoints are styled as we design. Our clients are encouraged to load concepts on their phones and tablets during the review process.

User Testing

While prototyping apps have come along way, nothing beats testing with a live site. Our designs support interactive user testing, where users can press a button, fill out a form, or watch a video, creating a seamless experience.

Dev Ready

Gone are the days of pixel-perfect comps that can’t be translated to code. By starting with code, our creative work is dev-ready from the get-go.

Engineering

Our engineering team focuses on writing lightweight, crisp code that supports flexibility and meets the exacting standards of our creative team. The result is industry leading back-end performance and reliability coupled with forward thinking front-end solutions.

Performance

Our experience building one of the most visited sites on the web means we know how to build fast, high-performance experiences for companies of all sizes.

Integrations

From custom Salesforce connections to fully integrated content and commerce platforms, our engineering team has a proven track record of delivering innovative solutions at enterprise scale.

International

We are leaders in building international sites, designing translation workflows, and creating high-traffic, multi-lingual/multi-site web experiences.

QA Testing

Our quality assurance approach is based on "test early, test often" best practices, with an emphasis on embedding risk assessment, mitigation, and test planning in every phase of a project. This way we solve problems before they happen.

Drupal

Our experience with Drupal, including the new D8 platform, is unparalleled in the agency world. We employ a core maintainer, all of our Drupal engineers are Acquia certified, and we have built award-winning enterprise sites for some of the largest brands in the world.

Shopify Plus

Our extensive engineering background lets us solve any of your problems from creating a new custom Shopify site, migrating an existing site to Shopify, or tuning up your experience with an SEO friendly, lightning fast front-end theme. 

Wordpress

Almost every member of TAG has worked on or built a Wordpress site. We are intimately familiar with the WP ecosystem, including WooCommerce, and we continue to invest in the platform.

We have managed some of the highest trafficked websites that run on Aquia Cloud, and built award winning automation tools. We are one of Acquia’s Most Valuable Partners and have been so since launch.

Optimization

Launching a site or a feature is a time to celebrate. We shipped it—chyeah! But what comes next? At Third & Grove, we firmly believe that our work on digital experiences is never done, and that as a team (devs, designers, strategists, PMs) we can continually find ways to improve the user experience.

Search Optimization

Our engineers and strategists work together to identify and solve technical problems, while our writers and designers create content that gets users to convert and search engines to smile.

Personalization

We are leaders in developing and executing personalization strategies and custom user experiences for enterprise clients.

Content Production

We don’t churn out blog posts or deliver stacks of stock photography, but we do create meaningful content that is informed by user experience research and data analysis.

Reporting

Back to where it all started. All of the work we do is data-driven, which means that we follow a continuous cycle: analysis to strategy, strategy to design, design to implementation, and then back to analysis to continue improving.
