From Quick Starts to In-Depth Missions

We offer you the flexibility to manage your costs by choosing how much support you need from us during your website project.

You can ask us to include any of the following in your project:

– Coaching and consulting to help you identify who you want to reach with your website (your target audience), what you want them to do after they’ve visited your website, and what content is needed to achieve that.
– Proof-reading and editing of your content.
– Research into what off-the-shelf plugins and web-based software is needed to support your objectives.
– Copywriting of your content.
– Selection of (non-cheesy) stock photos for you, if you don’t have photographs of your own to use in the website.
– Integration of your website with email newsletters, online donation platforms, eCommerce and other interactive elements.
– Coding of custom software and/or WordPress plugins if you need your website to do something unusual.

You can reduce your costs by:

– choosing limited amounts of communication time with us
– providing all your content (text and photos) up front, before the project starts
– choosing to let us design the site with a simple WordPress theme that we know well, with the WordPress Classic Editor (which works a lot like Microsoft Word)

Responsive Design

Many site visitors will view your website on a smartphone or tablet. We build ALL our websites with responsive design, which allows for the best viewing experience on these devices, and test our sites on multiple platforms.

Additional Services

Because each customer’s requirements are different, you can choose from the following additional features to create just what you need.

Additional WordPress Features (Plugins)

One of the great benefits of working with WordPress is that powerful functionality can be added affordably to your website using off-the-shelf plugins. We’ll install, configure and visually customize your required plugins to integrate seamlessly with your site’s design. Popular plugins include:

  • Event Calendars
  • Slide Shows
  • Photo Galleries
  • Social Media Sharing
  • Newsletter Signup Froms

Custom-Coded Plugins or Software

Need a custom feature in your website that lets you interact with your customers in a unique way? A feature that your competition may not have? If an off-the-shelf plugin isn’t available, we’ve got the technical skills to create it from scratch, either as a custom plugin or by integrating custom code into your theme.

Custom Styling of MailChimp Email Template

Many of our clients maintain mailing lists and send out regular announcements or newsletters. Let us take your branding to the next level by customizing your MailChimp email to coordinate with your website.

Logo Formatting for Social Media

Many social media sites allow you to display your organization’s logo in several different locations. However, the aspect ratio in which the logo is displayed may vary for each location, resulting in your logo being stretched, or pixelly, or some of it being cropped out. We’ll create a version of your logo for each social media site you use, which correctly fills the space allowed, without distortion or loss of information due to cropping.

Customization of Social Media Page

If you’d like to go beyond uploading your logo, to have your social media page styled to match your new website, we’ll work with the features offered by each social media platform you use to achieve the best result.

Copywriting for your Website

Writing copy can be time consuming and challenging. If you’d like to hand that task off to an experienced writer, we’ll create compelling and engaging text that communicates your message clearly to your audience.

Style Guide

For the best marketing results, you’ll want to present a consistent brand identity in all your communications. A style guide is a document that summarizes all the fonts, colours and images that comprise your corporate image, and provides guidelines on how to use them consistently. This is particularly useful if there are multiple people in your organization preparing marketing materials.

Printed Marketing Material

We don’t just design for the online world. Our team is proficient at creating elegant and effective printed marketing materials. Let us design your printed materials to ensure consistency across all your marketing, including:

  • business cards
  • advertisements in printed publications
  • infographics
  • layout of magazines or printed catalogs
  • signage
  • posters and single-page flyers
  • trifold brochures
  • postcards
  • wall calendars you can send to your clients

If you’re interested in any of the options on this page, drop us an email and we’ll send you our complete pricing PDF.

Make a Great First Impression with your Branding

Your corporate image tells an important story to your clients, indicating the level of quality and service they can expect when dealing with you. A contemporary, high-quality logo and carefully chosen fonts and colours reassure customers that you’re a professional organization and can be relied on to deliver what you’ve promised.

Your logo, fonts and colours are integral components around which your website can be designed, so if you are planning for both a new corporate image and a new website, you’ll get the best results (in terms of both quality and cost) by doing the corporate image first.

There are two types of logos, and we offer both.


A wordmark is a logo containing only text. Famous wordmarks include Coca-Cola, FedEx, Facebook and CNN. A wordmark typically includes your business name (or an abbreviation of it), and may occasionally include a tag line. Multiple fonts, font sizes and colours may be used.


A LogoMark is a unique graphic element, which may or may not include some text. Famous examples include the Nike ‘swoosh’, McDonald’s ‘golden arches’, and Apple’s apple.

Logo Renovations

We’ve also helped clients update outdated logos, keeping their original concept intact, while freshening up colours, fonts and shape. If you’re interested in this, send us an image of your current logo and we can advise you of the anticipated cost to update it.

If you’re ready to showcase your organization to best effect, contact us today to discuss how we can achieve that.


SEO Starter Package

Our SEO Starter offering is a cost-effective way to increase your new website’s ranking on search engines like Google and Bing. This package is available for WordPress sites (which are NOT built with WordPress.com) and for SquareSpace sites. It is designed for websites that have not had prior SEO work. Here’s how it works.

You provide us with two phrases (keywords) that you want your website to rank for. (For example, for our site those might be “web design, vancouver, bc” and “web development, vancouver, bc”.) Then we make a set of changes to your website to improve its ranking for those phrases.

Note: Due to the complex and ever-changing nature of the web, we cannot guarantee particular rankings as a result of our work. If your business works in a highly competitive industry, with many local competitors, it is more difficult to rank near the top than if you are a unique business, with few competitors. If we identify up-front that your web designer has already implemented the SEO strategies that are part of this package, we will advise you not to purchase the package.

The package includes the following:

  1. Add keywords to the website description meta tag of your site.
  2. Install and configure an SEO plugin if your website is built with WordPress.
  3. Modify the following for as many as 5 pages in your website to include your desired keywords: description meta tag, page URL, and page title.
  4. Add your preferred search phrase to the site title.
  5. Submit the website and a website sitemap to Google.
  6. Replace as many as five page-header images with newly named images, which include keywords in their filename.
  7. Write up suggested edits to five pages of your website, so that they include important keywords and phrases and submit this to you for approval.
  8. Upon approval, make those edits for you.
  9. Write up instructions for you explaining how to add image titles and descriptions for images embedded in among the content on your site.

With these techniques, we were able to bring a new townhome development in a small town to the number #1 spot on Google, and to bring a custom home builder, with a number of competitors, to #7 and #8 on Google (after they started out not even ranking for their desired search term on any of the 6 pages of results).

Note: This is an implementation package, not a consultation package, so the following items are not included in this package.

  • Consultation to help you choose your search phrases.
  • Communications time during the implementation.
  • Virtual training on how to follow the instructions in item 9 above.

Development of Custom Web-Based Software

We have the skills in-house to go beyond information-only websites, to create fully custom web-based software. Here are examples of some of the ways we’ve helped our clients reduce business costs, increase efficiency, and succeed online.

  • A wholesale sign-printing company uses custom interactive web-based production tracking software we created to track the production of signs from station to station on the work floor. (We also maintain their online custom ordering system.)
  • A government funded non-profit uses a custom database we created, with password-protected web-based data entry, and click-of-the-button report generation, to track how many children in BC have benefitted from their reading program and to prepare reports for funding agencies.
  • A personal growth workshop provider uses custom forms to collect information from participants prior to workshops, in order to give attentive personalized support.
  • A law institute uses a custom database, plugin and search form that we integrated into their WordPress site to give researchers access to an extensive 8000+ item database of legal abstracts.
  • A Sunshine Coast realtor uses a real estate listing plugin we created for his new WordPress site to enter his own listings and display them to best effect.
  • A visitor centre’s Joomla website uses custom software to pull their facebook postings into the website. We also integrated this into a WordPress site for a dance society.
  • Several non-profits use custom membership forms we’ve created to collect information and payment from new and renewing members.
  • An author sells her books from her WordPress website, using a custom order form we created to calculate the cost of products, shipping and provincial taxes.
  • We were also the sole developer for the complex and highly interactive web portal for the BC forestry sector, WoodSourceBC. This site lets those buying and selling forestry products set up free accounts and post listings for items they are selling or wish to purchase. An automated matchmaking feature identifies when a seller and a buyer are a match, and emails both.

If you’re interested in developing custom web-based software, please contact us. We’ll email you our proprietary Project Discovery Worksheet, which will help you identify both the target audience for your software and what you need that software to achieve. If you require, we’ll sign a non-disclosure agreement before you share your discovery sheet with us. We’ll review your worksheet, and if we think we can help, we’ll offer a one-hour complimentary call to discuss the project.

Depending on the complexity of your project, we may be able to prepare a fixed price quote following that call, or we’ll recommend working together on an hourly basis to identify and write up detailed project requirements, which you can then use to shop around for multiple bids. Alternatively, if your requirements are evolving, and our schedule permits, we can develop your software on an ongoing hourly basis.

After your site is launched, we offer long-term support to ensure your site stays up-to-date and functioning properly in the face of software upgrades. Here are just a few of the tasks we can take care of for you:

  • Website content updates, including new pages
  • Website content reorganization
  • Graphic design for logos, flyers, signage and magazine ads
  • Creation of HTML (formatted) email newsletters
  • Development of custom web features like membership forms

For some clients we are an integral part of their team, carrying out a variety of online and graphic design tasks every month. Others only need us a few hours a year. Whether you need occassional assistance, or a major feature like ecommerce, we’ll be here.

Our prepaid hourly packages address this wide range of client needs. Hours are good for one year from the purchase date.

We'd love to hear from you!
