Frequently Asked Questions

How long does it take to build a website?

Timelines depend on the spec of the website project, but here's some guidelines...

  • Shopify projects usually take around 4 weeks.
  • Craft CMS projects usually take a minimum of 5 weeks.
  • Craft Commerce projects usually take a minimum of 8 weeks.

What size companies do you produce web designs for?

We work with ambitious start up businesses through to large global organisations such as Blackberry, NHS and L'Occitane so we can tailor our services to suit your needs.

Do you redesign existing websites?

Yeah not a problem, we’ll take a look at your current website and outline what we think needs improving. This gives you the option to redesign your current site, or start from scratch.

Do you work internationally?

Yep! Here at Shape, we work with companies all over the world. We use Slack, Zoom, Skype and many other online applications which allow us to communicate seamlessly throughout a project from start to finish so we can help you no matter where you are in the world.

Do you offer ongoing help with our new site once it's launched?

We certainly do, we offer what’s called Shape Support to help you with all of your website needs, this is completely optional and all of our websites come built on Craft CMS meaning you can add, edit and update every part of your website yourself.

Will my website work on smart phones and tablets as well?

Every website we design and build comes compatible with any screen size. More and more people access the web on smaller devices such as phones and tablets so we understand the importance of a responsive website.

How much does a website cost?

Unfortunately, we don't have set project prices. Every brief we work on has different requirements that alter the spec of the job. So, once we've received the brief - we can give you an indication of the cost and timescale. If you need a hand with your brief, we wrote an article on how to create a killer web design brief.

We have a limited budget, will you still work with us?

Our mindset is that we want to work with clients of the same vision. If you want to improve your brand online, and understand the way we work - and the discussions are of mutual understanding - then we want to work with you. In terms of budget, the easiest way to find out if a project is possible... is to let us know what your budget is. That way, if we know the budget, we can advise the best way of spending your money. We wrote this article about the importance of a website budget a while back that is still relevant.
