Website Design & Development

Based in ​Empangeni, ​Justin Whittaker is an established website designer with proven methods to market your business online.

A website is an important tool in marketing your business on the internet. Consumers have now changed from looking up telephone numbers in a book, to browsing online. By having a website designed for yourself or company you can showcase a broad range of information that will enable visitors and potential clients to learn more.

Special attention is given to you from the time you enquire and continues long after your website is running. By focusing only on website design and related services you can be assured that your project will be handled correctly. When designing your website, priority will be given on applying your brand and enhancing the layout so that visitors can easily find what they want.

Web design is offered to all areas of Zululand, KwaZulu-Natal such as Empangeni, Richards Bay, Mtunzini, Eshowe, St Lucia and Kwambonambi.

Website Design Frequently Asked Questions

What are your payment terms?
  • 50% non-refundable deposit within 15 days before work commences.
  • 25% on acceptance of design with minor adjustments to be made.
  • 25% final payment on completion of project on delivery but before final handover.

How long will it take for my website to be designed?
The timescale of a website design project is often dictated by the client. If you have a deadline in mind I will endeavour to meet it for you. The most common delay in the creation and completion of a new website is waiting for content (text/images) to be sent to by the client. I endeavour to design and complete a website within 2 - 3 weeks.

What do you need from me exactly?
I will ask you to supply me with your logo and the content you'd like to include on the website. I will also ask you for inspiration (i.e. your likes and dislikes), contact details you'd like to show, accreditations and a few other small things.

Will we need to have a meeting in connection with the website design?
In some cases a meeting isn't necessary. I place website designs in a private folder where only you and I can view the content. I then liaise with you regularly to discuss the website designs in order that the design and functionality is exactly as you wish.

Who owns the website once the website design is completed?
The website belongs to you - I can send you a copy of the website if requested. This copy is for your retention and should you wish to use another website design or hosting company - you are completely at liberty to take this copy to them to use.

Do you work on weekends?
No. Weekends are a valuable time to relax with friends and family. Unless otherwise arranged, all projects are scheduled during the week.

Can you help me take photos for my website?
Yes! I have been doing photography since 2012 so can assist in capturing vibrant photos or sourcing suitable ones online.
