How are websites or graphic projects priced?
We work to make sure that your goals are met and the results exceed your expectations. We'll discuss your needs and then customize your project to help maximize deliverables at a competetive cost. We'll work together to reach a fair price and timeline for the project at hand before starting work on any project.
Do you create easy to use websites?
A website with all the bells and whistles may seem like a catchy idea, but if all that flash causes your visitor to close their browser before finding what they're looking for, the site has failed in it's only job: to deliver easy-to-find content for it's users.
However, a good results-oriented designer has a solid understanding of website usability. They know how web visitors navigate websites and cater to them to help you achieve your goals (subscribers, leads, and sales).
Do you offer wire-frames before designing a website?
Website wire-frames are visual representations of where the content on your site will be placed. And yes, wire-frame mockups of your site will be provided. The number of choices offered may vary, but generally a range of 3 different visual styles will be presented for review.
Wire-frames are an important tool, as the placement of items on your site has more impact on your results than you may think. Having a visual layout will help you to better understand content flow and the relationship of different elements on the page.
Will you build any SEO into my site?
Search Engine Optimization is a major component in creating an effective website, and we work hard to make sure users are finding the information in your "search engine friendly" website. This includes editing the site’s content and HTML and associated coding to increase the site’s relevance to specific keywords in addition to incorporating all relevant social media facilities to increase the number of inbound links.
