Frequently asked questions

How much does a website cost?

Unfortunately, there’s no one answer to this question as quite honestly, it depends on what you want and how much you need us to do. What we can say is that brochure sites are the easiest and simplest to create so they’re likely to be the cheapest. E-commerce sites are more expensive as we need to spend more time setting up the shop, adding products, configuring the payment gateway and testing it all to make sure it works as intended. Bespoke development will cost the most as everything needs to be created from scratch and carefully tested, but you’ll end up with exactly the product you want.

I want to see what my website might look like before I accept your quote – can you send me a picture?

We’re often asked to submit visual design work as part of a quote but unfortunately this isn’t how we like to work. The visual design will be influenced by the features required from the project, along with the content that’s to be presented on the page. At the point where we submit our quotes/estimates, we don’t fully know what these things are, so it’s hard to create a visual image of how it will look. We normally create wireframes first, to figure out what’s going to go where, and we ask you to write a good amount of your content so that we can understand the framework in which we’re designing. Only then can we create visual designs that will have any meaning. As you’ll appreciate, there is a lot of work to be done first before we get to the visual design phase.

That said, we’d be more than happy to discuss visual design concepts with you beforehand and spend a few minutes thinking about what your site might look like. Do have a look at our portfolio for some examples of our work. We have different designers available to work with you who all have their own individual styles.

What is a wireframe and what does it do?

A wireframe is a black and white representation of your website or system and is used in the planning stages to work out exactly what features are required and to think about how all the pages will work together.

Wireframes are quick to put together and work in a web browser so are easy to test. They’re not worried about font, colour or images; instead they focus on the placement of elements, calls to action and content. They are an invaluable early tool that helps everyone to see and understand the product that’s to be built.

What e-commerce engine(s) do you use?

We normally use WooCommerce but have some experience with Magento and Prestashop.
