The length of time it takes to create a fully functional website depends on several factors. Custom design from 1981 Design can take anywhere from 1 - 4 weeks, depending on the complexity of the design and the number of revisions you may require.. Of course, these are general guidelines, and we will make every effort to meet the timeframe you have in mind.
It is difficult to quote an average price, due to the enormous range in requirements for a site. Some designers might charge £2500 or more for a basic Web site, not including hosting fees. It’s possible to buy a 4 - 6 page template-based site around £400. Here at 1981 Design we will work to keep your costs as low as possible, with most our custom projects priced below £500. There are many, many factors that influence the ultimate cost of any given website, so please contact us to kick start your project.
We specialize in HTML5, CSS3 and PHP, and others. Although it's unlikely, if there's something we can't do, we can reach out to our network of partners for additional services (at no additional cost to you).
We encourage you to fully engage in the design processes, this way you will get the website of your dreams. We build your website on our development server, and provide you with a username and password so that you can log in and monitor the progress of your site. Once your site is ready and you have provided your approval, we release it live on your server and submit your URL to the major search engines.
We give as much freedom as we possibly can, after you've identified the general format and colour scheme of your preferred design, we'll complete up to 2 rounds of major revisions at no charge. All minor revisions are provided at no charge.

1981 Design don't recommend the use of templates as you won’t have a unique design, most template systems don’t conform to usability an search engine guidelines, but if you are looking at launching in just a few days or on a very limited budget a template might be an acceptable short-term solution.

The second payment is required upon the halfway point, with the final third due upon completion of the project.
