A full website design is generally what we do, starting from scratch. The cost of a website will vary significantly depending on the scope of the project. A basic web project, including reserving a domain name, acquiring a hosting service and designing a basic web site consisting of 5-10 pages of content, will generally cost between $1500-$2500. This price includes the design, a contact form, 5-10 additional pages of content, and a 1-year reservation of a domain and web hosting. A reasonable estimate for original web design is $300 per page for the first five pages. For sites under 50 pages, the cost will drop significantly after those first five pages, as the majority of the cost lies in the original design.
All web sites we design will encompass the best practice web design principles:
A commitment to web standards
Careful attention to web accessibility
Consideration of web usability
Attentiveness to search engine friendly design
Attention to principles of universal design
As special features, custom programming, and more complex navigational schemes are introduced, prices rise as well. For this reason, all projects require a detailed plan describing the scope of the project before quoting.
Update and Redesign of Existing Websites
All site redesigns must be negotiated individually. If you want to keep the content of the site but have a completely new design, this will be considered a new design, as above. It is usually more difficult and time consuming to apply web accessibility to an existing design than to start from scratch.
Develop Your Website From an Existing Design
Already have a talented graphic designer in mind or on staff? That's fine — we can work with your designer to realize your website in an accessible and search-engine friendly manner. We may require minor changes in the design in order to maximize search engine effectiveness or accessibility, but that's not a problem. Pricing for development contracts will be quoted individually, but is usually about 2/3 the cost of a full design and development project.
