What every website needs.
and from £450 you can have a great site with all this..
Design to reflect your brand and ideals
Do you have a logo, printed materials or other ideas that you would like incorporated into you website?
What is the overall “feel” you would like for your site? such as fun, relaxed, professional, contemporary?
Choice of colours & fonts
The typefaces and colour scheme you choose reflect the branding and feel of your site.
2 fonts and a colour scheme of maybe 3-5 colours including white can be a good start.
We are happy to put these together for you but if you wanted to get some inspiration, here are two great resources that I love and can get lost in for hours!
