Web Design

Web design can form an extremely important part of your business marketing process, for a lot of businesses having an online presence in the form of a web site is critical and at ID Studio we understand this.

A web design can be an expensive venture, done right, this investment can create a high return on expenditure. Done wrong, you do not only waste the money it cost to build the site, you can also damage your company’s reputation.

As a top London web design company, we would like to share some of our thoughts and questions you should be consider before choosing your next digital partner.

A lot of the enquiries we get are from businesses that have walked away from their web design agency, quite often there is one common factor that causes this. Outsourcing, a lot of companies now outsource their web design work to save money. One of the main issues here is quality, often this is lacking. In addition, communication can be a problem resulting in long delays, poor design and a website that you were not expecting. At ID Studio, our team of web designers and developers having been working together for years, they are experts in their fields and are available for discussions throughout the web design project.

Can the web agency build a site that is actually responsive? So that it works correctly on mobiles and tablet devices? Having a web design that is responsive is critical due to the number high percentage of users that will access your site using them.

At ID Studio we will provide you with an estimated timescale for the web design build, on average a ‘brochure’ style site takes around eight weeks until it is fully tested and live. We have had numerous clients that have come to us because they were still waiting for their site to be completed after six months. Make sure your web design agency has the capacity to complete the project on time, has allocated adequate resources for your build and also check some of their past clients. Time taken to complete a project can also be hindered if the agency of choice outsources their work.

Ongoing costs, as a reputable Web Design company this is something we despise. If you have paid for the work, why should you have ongoing costs or be tied into contracts. Where possible, it is often cheaper and just as effective to use open source technology for your web design. For instance, WordPress or Laravel are great for content management systems, they have massive support and are continuously having new features added to them. Nonetheless, there will be times when you have to pay licensing fees or subscriptions, make sure the web design company of choice makes you aware of this.

All of our proposals for web design include set costs, there are no hidden surprises or estimates. Before ID Studio creates a proposal, we will gain a thorough understanding of the project, if we underestimate the work then that is our problem. Always check that web design company are charging a set rate and that their payment structure is fair. At ID Studio, our payment structure is split into set phases, after the successful completion of each stage and signoff by the client, we will ask for the next payment.

Who owns the web design after competition? At ID Studio we hand over all the source files so that you have complete control. Before you appoint an agency, make sure that you own the rights to the files, some design agencies hold onto them so that you have to use them for all updates!

Above are just some of the reasons why you should consider ID Studio for your next web design project. To view our excellent design portfolio or testimonials visit our web site www.netdreams.co.uk, call +44 (0) 20 8948 5808 or email contact@netdreams.co.uk
