Good design is priceless. It helps your business stand out from that of your competitors and gives you an identity that your customers can instantly recognise and relate to, but that doesn't mean it has to be expensive.
If you don't have a logo for your business, I can create one for you. Ideally, I would need a rough outline of your business plan and mission statement to help me get a feel for your business and your unique selling point so that I can create an image for you that reflects who you are and what you have to offer. We don't do 'off the shelf logos', an 'off the shelf' logo is meaningless!
It would also help if you could provide either a rough sketch of what you have in mind, or a few examples of logos you have seen and particularly like - not so that I can copy them, but to help ensure I can create something that you will like! We all have different ideas about what we like to see. For £45.00, I will draw up a few ideas of what I have in mind after reading through your brief and send you a watermarked PDF to look at. I would then speak to you in person or on the phone, or possible via email to discuss aspects you like and might not like about what I have shown you, and then, hopefully, be able to send you back a finished copy. Extra costs might be incurred if, for example, you want a very complex coat of arms drawn up, or there are a lot of people with conflicting ideas and opinions involved in the decision making process.
Fashion changes from season to season in all aspects of design, but while you don't want to be changing your logo from season to season - that would kind of defeat the object of having a logo in the first place - after a few years a logo can begin to look a little dated. Sometimes, this is not a bad thing as it can reflect the idea of long established, but it can also reflect the idea of behind the times and old fashioned, which is not going to help you attract new customers. It might be something as simple as a slight change of colour or typeface that will give your image a little lift to bring it bang up to date. Give me a call or email me to discuss whether your logo needs a facelift.
This service is also ideal if you have designed your own logo but you are not familiar with how to put it into the required format for print or just need it 'tidied up' a little. This does not cover complex image tracing or Photoshop editing.
Price does not include logo design or printing and assumes images of a suitable resolution are provided. Particularly complex layouts may cost more.

Website design is a very difficult area of design to price in that a lot depends on exactly what you want, where it is being hosted and what hosting package you have, as well as how comfortable you are with using your computer. As a rough guide, assuming you have web hosting and a logo, a site similar to this one, created on a Joomla platform, with a header containing your logo, background and menus laid out and colour scheme set up for you to enter your own content could cost as little as £90.00 - but unless you are already familiar with joomla, I would recommend that you let me enter the content for you, or, if you are within reasonable distance, I spend a day showing you how to configure the content and menus.
Joomla extensions offer many, many possibilities and can be bolted on, usually quite easily and for very little cost to purchase - many are free, but obviously also take time to set up and configure, so these considerations have to be taken into account. Please call or email me to discuss.
For a web site with between 5 and 10 menu items, with text (provided by yourself), a number of images set in a gallery or as a slide show, google analytics, and social networking links I would usually charge between £500 and £1000.
