WEBSITE DESIGN TERMS & CONDITIONS

We create look-and-feel designs and flexible layouts that adapt to the capabilities of many devices and screen sizes. We create designs iteratively and use predominantly HTML and CSS so we won’t waste time mocking up every template as a static visual. We may use visuals to indicate a creative direction (colour, texture and typography.) We call that ‘atmosphere. You’ll have plenty of opportunities to review our work and provide feedback. We’ll share a demo of the progress. In some cases, on content management system based websites theme based systems are used to speed up a lengthy process and keep down development costs. We may need to use a theme and customise it towards your brand’s look and feel. We will have you look at a design idea and work together to adapt your brand’s requirements.
