Creating a Custom Website Design (for a new or existing website)

Creating a custom website design on the platform that best suits the needs of your business allows maximum control over the features of the site and how they are displayed to the user.

A custom site design includes:

  • Initial client meeting to discuss what you would like your website to do for your business (generate leads? generate sales? info about your service?) and an ongoing open line of communication and exchange of ideas (because sometimes one idea leads to another!)
  • Development of a creative brief/proposal for the project
  • Presentation of design concepts with revisions to the chosen design
  • Creation of the website, including preparation of graphics for use on a website and the installation of the content with consideration given to best practices for websites and SEO
  • Training for onsite staff (if required)
  • Set-up for domain names and website hosting (if required), including email
  • Project management that guides you through the process, step-by-step

Project cost: Starts at $1,900.00 for a static HTML site with about five main pages of content; WordPress development with a custom theme starts at $4,300.00. Cost varies based on the amount and type of content that your site requires.

Creating a Website from a Template (for a new or existing website)

Using a professionally developed template is a great way to lower the overall cost of a website development or redesign project. We recommend templates and themes from ThemeForest.net. Go ahead and click the link to get an idea of the great templates they have to offer!

Your chosen template can be customized with your logo and the colours matched to your brand/preferred colours. Graphics can be changed to better reflect your product or service.

A website design/re-development project using a template includes:

  • Initial client meeting to discuss what you would like to your website to do for your business and an ongoing open line of communication and exchange of ideas (because sometimes one idea leads to another!)
  • Development of a summary proposal for the project
  • Presentation of several templates (HTML) or themes (WordPress) for consideration
  • Customization of the template or theme and creation of the website, including preparation of graphics for use on a website and the installation of the content with consideration given to best practices for websites and SEO
  • Training for onsite staff (if required)
  • Set-up for domain names and website hosting (if required), including email
  • Project management that guides you through the process, step-by-step

Project cost: Starts at $1,100.00 for a static HTML site with a customized template and $1,850 for WordPress with a customized template theme. The cost varies due to the amount and type of content your site requires.

Updating Your Existing Website

Occasionally your existing website simply needs a fresh look. We can make the changes that you need, whether or not we created the site. Changing your site to include new options as your business grows can be as easy as sending an email or making a call.

Small changes can often be done within 12 hours and we strive to complete most updates within a 24 hour window of receiving the complete list of what needs to be done.

Hourly rate: $70; an estimate can be provided before the work begins, if requested.

Website Audit

Do you know that you need to do something but don’t know where to start? We will audit your site using specific analytic tools designed to find opportunities for improvement. A comprehensive report is prepared that can guide your priorities for attention and help you decide what changes will likely generate the best return on your investment.

A website audit can be especially helpful when a website needs to be optimized for search engine result pages.

3-8 hours, depending on the size of the website and the scope of the audit ($70/hour)

Domain Name Registration & Website Hosting

Every website needs a domain name (i.e. www.domain.com) and a place to reside on a server (hosting). CarricDesign has developed relationships with trusted partners to ensure that your website stays operational 24/7. Our service means that you can leave all the technical ‘stuff’ to us. We take care of hooking everything up and making sure that it works as intended.

Domain name registration: $15.95/year (.ca/.com; price varies for other top level domains)
Hosting: $140.00/year
Email set-up: $60.00 (one-time fee; includes creating the email addresses and giving instruction for getting them set up in your preferred email program)

Our Work

We have worked on a wide variety of types of sites, built on various platforms. Our platform of choice is WordPress, as it lends it self well to customization but there are thousands of templates that can be used as a starting point. Through continuing education, we are constantly updating skills and knowledge to get ever-better at creating beautiful, functional and hard-working sites for our clients.

Learning to speak web.

When meeting clients for the first time, we often hear how frustrated they are trying to ‘speak web’.

We get it. Kind of like trying to describe the hairstyle you want to your hairdresser.

Don’t feel like you have to know all the correct terms when asking your questions. We are listening and will take the time to understand what you are looking for in a website.

Give us a call. Send us an email.
