Doormarked started off as landing pages in an XD Design as the company got everything set up then transformed into a full website by utilising Elementor Pro Page Builder. A nice and easy website to create. Your standard build and price for any small business just starting out and getting started with their website.
2by4 only needed a simple landing page to help advertise their app as it was in development. For speed we decided to utilise a premade template and then add their information around it. All the animations and complete framework of this website was all ready set up with placeholder content – all I had to do was set up domain, install everything and then arrange the content. A example of how to keep costs very low when building your website.
Investor Brands was a really relaxed website to create. The designs were very simple to follow and by using Elementor Pro Page Builder I was able to get this small 5 page website finished in under a week. These small information websites for businesses and brands are best created in a platform like WordPress and can be edited later on through the page builder or by utilising another plugin called Advanced Custom Fields. Which means you only change what’s needed and stay out of the way of the design and framework of the site.
Appy Ventures was a simple redesign of an older copy of their site. Deciding to utilise Elementor page builder and completely start from a fresh WordPress installation. Their in-house designer created the pages in Figma and I used Elementor Pro page builder to fully design everything. Where any customisations were needed I used my own code to manipulate certain areas to get the design just right.
Posts were utilised with filters for both their Blog and Portfolio of work showcase using tags to easily filter everything. Other plugins like WP Rocket and Powerpack for Elementor were used to help optimise and further customise the website.
This site uses the free Debut theme on Shopify and as you can see from the Figma designs below all the sections had to be added fresh and fit in with the theme and work around everything. The design itself nice and simple with very striking colours highlighting this new brand as it finally opened it’s website this year due to delays with packaging due to COVID. A site like this comes in around $1,750 – $2,000USD. Max
Shaz and Kiks was a redesign of an old website created by an Agency that unfortunately cut corners. So I decided to use the Narrative theme which is free on Shopify and already had features pre-coded that we could utilise and keep costs of the overall development down as all we had to do was customise these existing features. The design itself which is great was also a lot simpler to create so development time was faster.
WildPatch was an incredibly challenging website to create as it was very custom using lots of interesting designs and different ways to utilise each of the sections. Still I was able to easily build this off the free Debut theme Shopify provides and customise and bring this fantastic design to life for a great new brand.
The Technology Outlet is an example of how easy it is to take a premium theme, in this case “Expanse”, which was already OS2.0 ready and easily edit all the sections to fit the Figma files. Here the designer had a look at exactly what Expanse had to offer then created the site design based on those pre-made sections and areas, which I customised. Any thing that wasn’t already a part of the theme in the design I could easily code. Yet this was fast build due to how most of the leg work had already been done by the theme.
