The development process is pretty straightforward, and once work has commenced on your website, it's usually live and ready to use within a couple of weeks. There are three major steps for getting your website launched. First, we have a design meeting where all the details are discussed followed by the collection of media needed for the site (such as logos, images and videos). Second, the site is designed (usually inside Adobe Illustrator and Adobe Photoshop). Once the design is approved, the design is chopped and converted into HTML and CSS. This makes everything ready to be displayed inside a web-browser. Third, the site is deployed to the web-host. Pixelshock uses Amazon S3 service to host its websites. I offer two CMS systems. You can use Umbraco (a .NET platform), or Wordpress (a PHP platform). If you need help, your content can be added for you. You will also be trained on how to use your CMS and make changes to your site any time you want.
With a click of a button, your new site will be live and accessable to anyone with Internet access.
Pricing for custom website design is far more reasonable than it was a few years ago. Most sites (not using a commerce system) will cost on average as little as $1,500.00 for full development and less than $10 a month for hosting. Here is more detailed information on pricing.
Below are examples of sites designed by Steve Harrell.
*NOTE: Some of these sites were designed for other web firms. It is not uncommon for Web Design shops and marketing firms to outsource their design work to independent contactors such as myself. Every site displayed on this website was designed by me. Feel free to contact Steve with any questions.
