Web Design Prices - a professional services firm
Web design is about specialist knowledge, tools and experience. As a professional services firm we are paid by the hour. Part of this focus is that we utilise rapid development prototyping and the extensive reuse of technology to offer the greatest value in the shortest period of time. Our specialist knowledge allows us to generate a massive amount of value in a short period of time where our specialist knowledge is required. After that a lot of the common work like adding articles, images, and expanding the website is just as easily done by the client. Interweaving has a philosophy which is based on enabling our clients. By all means we help our clients in any effort they require. However, we prefer to "teach a man to fish" rather than to just constantly sell them fish.
Once the original development of your website is complete to train you how to administer and expand your website yourself. When you need us for advice, more complicated tasks, or just getting something done that is urgent - we are there.
