FAQ on finding the right web design company
Common questions people ask while looking for an agency
Q: How much does web design cost?
A: All website agencies focus on different customers (startups, enterprise) and they use different engagement models (fixed price, project-based, performance-based, time&materials, etc.). Some website are just ‘business cards’ like marketing websites, others are complex e-commerce platforms. Depending on that, the price varies dramatically. But designing a straightforward 5–7 pages marketing website with a US web firm would cost anywhere beyond $30k+. In our opinion, e-commerce website or web apps have no specific limits in budget and should be treated more like UI/UX projects with iterative approach with constant improvements. Some meaningful results in key performance indicators of the website can be achieved in a month or so and could start from $25k+.
Q: How web design process usually go?
A: Every agency may have a different approach. First is the clarification of the ultimate goal of the website design/redesign and other data, like target audience, competitors, etc. Once the project brief is done the agency starts working on information architecture, wireframing, copywriting and as an ultimate goal, interactive prototype. Then the prototype can be tested on some users and internally with the stakeholders to collect some initial feedback. As the next stage, the agency starts working on visual design. They apply brand colors, typefaces, brand illustrations and other design assets related to the brand. Once the web pages ready, then they can be composed into another prototype with a much higher level of fidelity. Tools like Invision can help to make it very interactive and almost feel like an actual website. This prototype can be delivered to the next phase of user testing. As a results the work will be handed off to the front-end development team.
Q: What are the main locations of the best agencies?
A: The tech world today is getting more and more globalized, and lots of key players are becoming remote-friendly. It is related to both their employees, contractors and external agencies they hire. Location makes a much smaller difference now. However, lots of web design companies gathered in the main tech hubs and big developed cities of North America (San Francisco, New York, Los Angeles, Seattle, Austin, Portland, Boston), UK (London, Manchester), Canada (Vancouver, Toronto), Australia (Sydney, Melbourne) and Western European cities like Berlin, Amsterdam, and Paris.
Q: Beyond the list above, how to find and hire web designers online?
A: One of the options would be to find them at design community websites like Bēhance (by Adobe), Dribbble, Google Search.
