Q. What information will Ojaswi Tech need from my company to start the website design process?
We will require your
logo in a .cdr or .high resolution jpg format. (If you need our logo designing
services, download our logo design questionnaire here.) - We will need images
in a jpg format from you. In case you want Ojaswi Tech to procure the images,
we provide you the exact price before we buy them for you. The cost is at
actuals. - The content should be in Word 2007 (or earlier version). Our content
writers will be glad to assist you in case you need professional website
content to be developed.
Q. I have a limited budget. Will Ojaswi Tech work within it?
Yes! In these recession
prone times, many a company want to limit spending on their website, and at
Ojaswi Tech, we understand this. Besides pricing our designing charges
competitively, we also work within stipulated budgetary requirements.
Q. What are the steps involved in my website design? How much time will it take to complete my website?
After receiving your
confirmatory e-mail and the required advance, we will begin the mock
development of your web site design home page as per the approved site
structure. This mock will be based on a detailed brief from you (see the Ojaswi
Web Site Design Questionnaire) and personal / telephonic interactions. Usually,
we provide one mock based on your brief. We then deploy this mock on our / your
server in HTML format. Upon your approval (with suitable modifications)
wherever needed, we then proceed with the development of the inner page mock,
following the same iterative process. We designate a single point of contact
from our company, and request you to do the same. Typically a 10 pages static
website takes about 15 days to complete, assuming we get timely feedback from
your company. A database driven site takes about 3 weeks or more, depending
upon the complexity of the project. Our detailed web site proposal defines the
time lines and the mile stones in detail.
Q. Does your company provide a sample UI? We want to develop our website, but would like to take ensure of your designing skills before giving you the order.
One of the best aspects
of website designing is the transparency it provides. Since most of the websites
that we design are deployed on a server and open for everyone to view, we
encourage potential clients to take a look at our existing web site designs. We
will start development work only after you are satisfied that we have what it
takes and agree to our standard terms and conditions. In other words, we do not
believe in any freebies!
Q. Our company logo is ready, and the link structure defined. Can you start work while we develop the website content?
experience, we have decided not to proceed unless we get the final version of
the content. Website design is a complex process, and there are many constrains
in ensuring cross browser compatibility. While minor edits are not a problem, a
big change in the text can affect the UI design. It is better for everyone
involved to start the designing process only after all the content is in place.
Q. Do you adhere to any web design standards or guidelines?
We adhere to W3
guidelines while implementing all our web sites. Further, we ensure that our websites
are compatible in all the leading browsers like Firefox, IE, Opera and Safari
across all the major platforms.
Q. Do you use CSS based design?
Style sheets (CSS) make
website maintenance very easy, and have become our de-facto choice. Check any
of our website in the Portfolio section for examples.
Q. Do you help in content creation?
Yes, we do. Copy writing
for the web is a different ball game than writing for the print / ad media and
takes expertise that comes only through experience. Further, there are
demographic considerations...there is a difference between British English,
Indian English and the U.S. English. We develop content based on the client's
Q. Who owns the design / code after the site?
After the website is
deployed and we receive the final payment, we upload / mail the latest design,
PSD files and all the code to the client.
Q. If I need updates, do you provide it?
Absolutely! We believe
in long term relations, and assist our clients in keeping their web site up to
date. We do not charge for minor text edits like change of address, change in
contact information, etc. at any point of time. For websites that require
continuous updates, we provide service and bill by the hour.
Q. What are your payment terms and conditions? How do you accept payments?
For a small website, we
charge an advance fee of 35%. The balance is to be paid after the site is
deployed. For bigger projects, payments are to be made according to the
milestones decided. Once we receive the complete payment, we hand over all the
relevant designs / code to the client. We accept payment by PayPal or by
