What makes a great website?

1. It's got to be mobile-friendly! Your images and fonts should be easy to read, no zooming or dragging the screen around to see your content!
2. Images are the first thing people notice. Selected images that grab attention and make you look professional! Bad or tiny images will turn people off.
3. Simple and clean designs that aren't cluttered
4. Clear headings and informative text that's not too lengthy
5. The use of fonts that are appealing and easy on the eyes

What questions might you ask a client when starting a new project?

1. Who is the primary audience for this website?
2. What is the purpose of this website? (eg: to be found on Google, to show off your projects, to tell about your business, etc.)
3 What websites do you like?
4. Do you have a logo and/or a specific look already in mind?
5. Do you have images and text?

What do you love most about your job?

We love replacing old websites like from 2009 with mobile-friendly, sleek, attractive new websites! Making the web beautiful, one website at a time! The next best thing about web design is getting referrals, because that means we nailed it, and made a client very happy.

What inspired you to start your own business?

CalApps started out as a part-time hobby, first as a website-builder application we called "Kawinda" (that was supposed to sound really catchy, like "Yahoo!"). However, it soon became clear that custom work was much more satisfying and that's where the demand was, so we changed to CalApps and have since grown into a full-time endeavor.

Why should our clients choose you?

We are real people that you can call up, email, or meet with. We care about the final result because it becomes part of our portfolio, so we listen to what you want but at the same time we will recommend what we think works best based on our experience. We are patient and helpful and we don't rush our work. Every client gets the same attention and treatment no matter the scope or budget.

Web Design FAQs

Expand all

How much does web design cost? This is something that can be incredibly difficult to put a figure on due to the nature of the service. There are also differences based on whether you are looking to work with a freelancer or a web design agency, and also whether you need a large, complicated site or something more simple.

We can help you to connect with the right designer to suit your needs. A clear idea of what you need, and how many pages and features are required, will be influential when it comes to pricing. This will help you to get an accurate quote for web design.

These two terms may seem like they are used interchangeably but they are two different things. A designer will be focused on the visual and creating a UI to suit the user, whereas a web developer is usually focused on the actual core of the website, making it function and using coding to enable it to do what it is supposed to.

When working with a web designer, if you want the whole package of a fully finished and functioning website, check that this is something they can offer before you employ their services. Make sure you have understood if they are offering web design or development, or both.

  • Responsive - A responsive web page design means that the site is viewable on a number of devices. The design automatically sizes to the screen and the designer doesn’t need to make formats for different devices and desktops.

  • Liquid or Fluid - This is a style of design that will shrink or stretch to the shape of the browser, and the page will look enlarged or shrunk, rather than items being rearranged. The size of the items in the design alter in relation to one another depending on the browser being used.

  • Fixed design - Fixed pages do not alter according to the browser automatically. On some devices such as tablets this can make it harder to see the content as you need to scroll around the page or pinch the screen in order to zoom in on sections. Though it is sometimes essential, fixed design is becoming less common.

Whether you are working with a freelancer or a big agency, they will have a portfolio for you to view. This allows you to see other, similar projects they have worked on and decide if they have the skills you need.

There are a number of web design certifications and they may be happy to share any they have attained, but there isn’t one standardized industry body.

If you are worried about a designer’s credentials you can also check their feedback from other clients, which you can view on their Bark profile.

Should you work with a freelancer or an agency? This is one of the decisions you need to make when looking to plan a web design project.

Working with a freelance Web Designer
This may be an option that can save you money. Freelancers are often able to charge less as they don’t have the same overheads as an agency.

Working with a Web Design agency
Web design agencies may have a bigger set of skills to draw upon than a freelancer as they will usually have a number of staff and designers working for them. They may also be able to show you a bigger portfolio, but you can expect to pay more when using an agency.

Definitely! One of the advantages of hiring a web designer is that they are able to provide services to their clients from any location. However, if your website is for a local audience, then you might want to hire someone nearby rather than further afield, so that they better understand your target market.
