By nature, providing an estimate for web design will be speculative. Each client’s needs and specifications are going to vary, and in consequence, the time spent on the design and set-up will differ. The first quotes below do not include photography and are introductory prices.
- A very simple site of 1 or 2 pages will cost around $150 - $200. This includes some images (supplied by you), and your text, getting the domain and website online.
This would be typical of a site offering a service rather than several products.
- A more involved site with your text, more images, descriptions, examples, categories, with up to 6 pages, will cost around $450 -- typically a site that offers some goods or a service with variations/options and therefor explanatory images and text.
- For a very similar site with more custom graphics (similar to this site) and many images I will charge around $500, more or less, depending of the amount of custom work desired.
- Beyond this, I cannot get more specific without knowing your expectations regarding style, imagery, content of your website, and number of pages. Obviously, the more work I do, the higher the cost - and the higher the potential impact of your site.
Your need and your budget will determine the extent of your online presence.
I will be happy to work on any kind of site you want. My personal design standards are quite high and apply to websites of any size.
The layout of this site was created with wide screen monitors and high resolution in mind, yet also taking into account the widespread use of older monitors and Windows XP
