Web design process
Here you can see our process and average timescales for our template website design and our custom website design.

With every website design we create, you will receive great customer service and expert advice for the life of your website.

The website home page is designed, as per your design brief, and provided to you as a ‘mock-up’ ready for your comments and approval. Up to 3 rounds of revisions are included - any further revisions are chargeable. The design is then amended if required before a final sign-off.
Phase 3 - Develop and deploy
