About

Philter Design Studios Inc. has been involved in bringing interactive content to the masses since 2001.  Starting out with a Flash design/development focus, over the years, this has evolved into development of interactive content using Flash, Adobe AIR, Silverlight and HTML5 for the web.

More recently, we have been involved in the development of apps for mobile devices including iPhone/iPad, Windows Phone 7, and Android platforms, deploying both native apps and apps using the Adobe AIR runtime.

In addition to working with top-notch agencies such as gskinner.comArchetype and BLITZ, we have developed interactive experiences for large corporations, educational institutions, startups, and government.  Recent clients include Microsoft, Alberta Education, 911 Memorial Foundation, FOX, and seekyourownproof.com.
