Frequently Asked Questions
The time frame is usually determined by the size & complexity of your website, our current design schedule and if agreed time lines, e.g. for the delivery of content, are met. We will ask you at the project start if you have a deadline in mind so we can endeavour to meet it. It takes us usually between 3-6 weeks to launch a new site.

If you would like to use our services to design & develop your website all you need to do is to contact us. We will then schedule a call to discuss all the details and consult you on site structure and elements to use so you get the most out of your site. This initial consultation is free of charge and you are not obliged to use our services at any stage during of after this process. When you are happy to proceed, you either pay the full amount of your package or a 40% deposit (in case you choose our payment plan) and we will start to work on your site.
Well, that depends!
Ideally it should only take minutes, when done on a regular basis. When it hasn’t been done in a while and your website is running on outdated software versions, things sometimes do go pear shaped and it may take days to fix it.
To minimise risk as well as cost, we are offering a monthly maintenance plan that includes regular WordPress core, theme & plugin updates, full backups, uptime monitoring and website health checks.
COVID UPDATE – NO IN-PERSON MEETINGS UNTIL FURTHER NOTICE
Not all all! We are able to create websites for clients regardless of their location. A face-to-face meeting is not necessary and by using phone, video chat, communication tools such as slack as well as email, we are able to effectively communicate with all our clients. Nevertheless we like to meet with our local clients at least once in the initial phase of the design project as we think it is nice to “put a face to the name” (phone or zoom).
