The App Developers

Essential Designs has offices in Vancouver, Calgary, and Toronto: we build mobile applications for iOS & Android, web applications, and custom software.

Mobile App development Vancouver Calgary Toronto

We handle the process from concept to deployment for all mobile app projects.  All project components are managed by the appropriate expert from Native Mobile iOS / Android coding to wireframing, graphic design, project management testing and app store approvals.

Web App Developers Vancouver

Our web app developers create highly responsive data-driven applications. The team from our Vancouver head office will guide each customer through the wireframe and design process, to create a quality bug-free web application designed for continual use.

Design Team (UI/UX) Calgary

Building high-quality software applications is only half of the job. We also build a creative and modern User Experience in every application. We are able to provide the full design process from concept to wireframe, and full graphic design for your software.

Our Process





We follow a 5 step process for all Essential Designs projects.

Each step in the app development process is managed by our internal team, with final approval by the client before proceeding to the next step.  The steps are sequential, meaning prior to the start of any code by our app developers in step 4, a fully approved wireframe and design will be locked and ready for the coding and app development team.

UI/UX Development

The first phase of any project with Essential Designs is the planning phase, and the User Experience and Interface are the most important part. We work with you to design the appropriate wireframes and final look of the application software or mobile app before it is sent to our development team.
