Template Customization versus Custom Design

We offer two levels of customization services for our clients' websites - template customization (adding logos and color choices to an existing template design) and custom design. The former is done as a flat rate project which helps keep costs low and turnaround quick. The examples you see on this website and the links we provide for you to view some of our past design projects display both custom and modified-template design services.

Rules of Design

Having been involved in web design over the past decade plus, I learned a thing or two about design:

  1. What looks good to one person doesn't necessarily look good to another
  2. "Fancy" and "Functional" are not always in line with one another. Sometimes you have to sacrifice "fancy" for other attributes like "fast loading" easy to navigate" and "good for search engine visibility"
  3. Clients want to make their marketing dollars work harder and longer, which means spending their money where it counts - on functionality, search engine capabilities, and traffic generation.
  4. Pre-designed website templates are cheap (often free) and easy to come by
  5. Customizing a pre-designed website template takes just a fraction of the time it takes to make a custom design.

For these reasons, and more, you will find many of the comps shown on this page are examples of template modifications, rather than custom design. There are also several link on this page as well which will lead you to some live design samples. Enjoy!
