We typically work on projects with budgets between £5,000 and £20,000. If you’re a small business, start-up or non-profit looking for something cheaper, please try our partner agency, Studio Matas.
What factors commonly affect a project budget?
An original website design might involve a team of people and an iterative process of planning, content gathering, photo selection, sketching, mockups in Photoshop, changes, sign-off, coding as webpages, another round of changes, testing on different browsers, testing on mobile devices, and more changes.
Or, you can chose a ready-made design from a gallery and have it installed quickly. It won’t be original or exclusive to you, but with additional customisation and your branding, it can be made unique to a degree. This approach would cost thousands of pounds less, but comes with limitations and may tie your hands in future.
Or there are in-between approaches. This is why one of our first questions to a new client is, “What kind of budget do you have?” That way we can focus on appropriate suggestions for you and not waste your time.
With any functionality, the devil is in the detail, and so one of our first tasks on the project is to sit down with you and properly plan your functionality.
