FAQs

FAQs

We accept a variety of project types; please contact us to discuss your individual needs.

Our web design projects tend to run from the 10k-150k price point. We generally have a minimum project size of $10,000 but have worked on smaller projects on occasion when we felt our skills and the client’s needs were aligned.

We typically don’t respond to RFPs that do not indicate a budget range. We ask for a budget because, in many cases, there are a number of ways that we might “meet the brief” in different budget ranges. Much as you could compare a Kia versus a Mercedes versus a Bentley when looking for a vehicle, having a general idea of your budget will help us create a site that will work for you and your budget expectation.

Not sure what your budget should be? Set an appointment with one of our strategists to discuss your general needs and goals so that we can help point you in the right direction.

An average minimum is 12 weeks, typically 12 to 18. More complex projects could last much longer.

Do you have a rush job? Contact us to discuss. We once created a website for a conference in four days after a client was let down by another firm, so regardless of the challenges you’re facing, we may be able to help.

It really depends on what else we have in our schedule, but usually we can get started within two weeks.

WordPress templates tend to be rigid and come with a lot of extra “bloat” that can affect your site’s performance and cause security issues.

We develop custom WordPress websites. In addition to technical performance, we firmly believe in a content-first approach and designing websites around each organization’s content and goals instead of using an existing design and trying to shoehorn content into it.

By taking the time to invest in building a website from the ground up, you’ll have a website that performs better, was created for you and your audience, and is easier to update.

We do not. We find it can be extremely difficult to execute another designer’s vision as there can be issues with spacing, mobile responsiveness, details that haven’t been thought out, etc. However, if you have a design idea or concept that you’d like to discuss, we’re happy to review it and see if we can add value to your project.

Generally speaking, no. If you need a company to take over the technical management of your website, we’re happy to discuss our retainers with you. Prior to executing an ongoing management agreement, we will perform a technical website audit to ensure we understand your website and have identified any outstanding issues. Once we’re up to date on the site we can work together to make any changes you need.

Our office is based in the heart of Washington, DC, about four blocks from the White House. Our team is comprised solely of full-time, direct employees.

No outsourcing. No freelancers.

You are by no means alone. Many of our clients come to us from other firms, and it seems that many issues stem from:

  • Not understanding the client’s needs
  • A lack of planning and project strategy
  • Attempting to utilize pre-built templates and plugins to try to achieve custom functionality

We have honed our processes and invested in our team to provide the best client experience we can. We are open about schedules and provide detailed expectations regarding deliverables at the outset of every project: if you stick to the schedule, you stick to the budget and launch on time.

We have a deep bench of example work, client testimonials, and references for website design, technical management, and digital marketing.
