Website design + build Cost

Typical site £2,500
pay as you go £250
Phase 1

Discovery & Development

The first stage of planning your website is to think about what you want to achieve and the audience you want to reach. I will research how best to create the UX (user experience or architecture) of your site, to enhance user flow. You might like a static site that has a more straight forward layout or something more dynamic that includes some user interaction.

Phase 2

Domain Registration & Hosting

If necessary I can secure your domain (subject to availability). The domain name will be registered in your name. If you require hosting services I can arrange and manage this for you or alternatively I can set you up with a hosting service if you would prefer to manage this yourself.

Phase 3

Define

The design of the UI (user interface or interior design) starting with your logo (which I can design or you can provide me with). Selection of typography and palette based around your branding. We will also discuss any specific pages you require (e.g. home, about us, contact, services). You can provide me with the content to be included in your site or I can help you with any copy and photography you require.

Phase 4

Create

I will create a staging site on my own servers for you to review your site as it being built. You will be able to review the progress online at any time, and I will notify you by email of any changes that require feedback.

Phase 5

Website Testing

Once the website build is complete, I will fine-tune the responsive behaviour, implement and evaluate SEO, test the site on a variety of platforms and browsers to insure proper display and functionality.

Final Phase

Website Launch

Once the website has been tested and you are happy with the end result, it will be uploaded and launched on your domain. Minor adjustments to your website will be included for up to 2 weeks after launch (up to a maximum of 4 hours labour).

Working with Leopard Design Studio was a breath of fresh air. From the start it was clear that Kate understood the brief and had all the requisite skills to deliver what we needed. Working with her was refreshing and painless. It was clear she was completely focused on achieving an excellent end result and was not clock watching or looking for ways to upsell on her initial quote. We feel privileged to be able to draw on her skillset

When we were looking for someone to build our website, we chose Kate for the beauty, simplicity, lightness and practical structure of her websites. She not only grasped our concept from the start, she also knew what we needed much better than we did. The website is wonderful, very easy to manage and browse, and in Spanish! We have really enjoyed working with her, and we are so grateful for her patience, creativity, tireless work and understanding, even with last minute changes. She went beyond our expectations. Muchas gracias, Kate.

Kate has created and just launched our beautiful new site which speaks for itself in terms of style, quality and precision whilst remaining user friendly and easy to navigate. It has been a work in progress over a few months while we waited for more photographs to come in but Kate has fully understood our needs and been patiently working away, paying so much attention to every detail, including helping out with some of the last minute photography work too. A very impressive, slick service and product indeed.

Kate is a brilliant designer. She understood exactly what I wanted – even though my brief was far from comprehensive. Her incredible attention to detail helped my site stand out from others in my field, and she came up with lots of elements that would never have occurred to me. Will definitely work with her on future projects.

Kate designed my web page several years ago to my great pleasure, and has managed it since, which has been a great help. Her design was very clear and attractive, and I wondered how it could be improved, but her latest redesign is even better. There’s a lot of effortless cross references between different books, reviews, photos, and and occasional offerings of new work, all in an attractive layout with easy navigation. Great work!
