How much does a website cost?

There are many solutions available today for getting a website for your business or organisation. These can range from free sites that you create yourself, to complicated multi-page database powered sites that can cost hundreds of thousands of dollars to get up & running. Unfortunately there is no 'standard' across the web development industry that dictates how much a website should cost, or what you will receive for your money.

Avoid the cheap & nasty

With so many free options out there, you may ask 'what's the point of using a professional?' Ultimately, if you want a quality website that looks great, is original, consistent with your organisation's branding, AND works well, then you will have to pay for it. There are so many factors that work together to make a website successful - some of which you may not even be aware of, or more importantly, have control over if you use a free website tool. You will save yourself time, money and stress in the long run if you leave the details up to a reputable company such as Design Sense Graphics & Web.

Keeping your website up-to-date - Content Management Systems (CMS)

Keeping the information on your website relevant and up-to-date is extremely important!! Although the thought of this can be daunting, in reality it does not have to be a huge task, and little-to-no technical knowledge is required to achieve this if your website includes a Content Management System built by Design Sense.

What is a CMS?

A Content Management System can be built into your website to allow you to make changes to certain text, images, documents etc. or can be used to manage an online store, blog, calendar etc. Design Sense custom-builds a CMS for each new website, tailoring it to the individual needs of the client. The CMS is very simple and easy to use. Unlike other Website Development providers, the CMS that Design Sense offers does not use a 'back end', but alternatively everything can be edited using the interface and navigation system of the actual website. All you have to do is log in, find the page you want to change, and click 'edit'.

What is a Logo, and why do I need one?

A Logo is a symbol or graphic emblem which is a concise, portable and powerful visual communication tool used to represent commercial enterprises, organisations or individuals. The logo is the central part of a broader Visual Identity - an image that helps promote public recognition of who the entity is and what they do.

A Logo is usually made up of a combination of a symbol or icon, and some text (eg. The name of the business). When designed by a professional, a logo becomes an asset to the company, and all visual communication is based on the colours, style, fonts and supporting elements uniquely created to represent that company's character and ethos.

How important is a logo?

The visual identity of your business or organisation is vital. A great logo will give potential clients an impression of the quality, professionalism and trustworthiness of the company.

Time for a makeover? Updating your brand

Design Sense Graphics & Web has considerable experience in refreshing tired brands, or completely rebranding an existing business. Some brands do lose impact over time - colours and styles change, and while a well designed logo should last many years and even decades (think Ford, Uncle Toby's, etc.), changes can be made to revamp an image. When rebranding occurs, there are usually some elements that are retained eg. Colours or fonts, or perhaps part of the logo, while others are changed. This helps to provide a link from the old to the new, and allows for continuity in the minds of the clients. It may also help to minimise the cost, eg. The whole building may not need repainting if the corporate colours remain the same. Refreshing a logo may be quite subtle, but it can make a big difference.
