Are you a graphic or web designer that can lay out a stunning website design in Photoshop, but don’t quite know where to take it from there? Welcome to the majority of designers who have neither the time, patience, nor skills required to try and code a custom design into a quality hand-crafted, dynamic website.
That’s where a partnership with BOLDelite comes in.
Why BOLDelite Is Better
It’s simple. We’ll do the dirty work for you.
Very few designers enjoy staying up ’til 3am trying to locate the one erroneous character that’s throwing their whole project out of whack. With a collaborative partnership with BOLDelite, there’s no more need for you to verify that your designs are compliant with W3C standards. No more keeping up on the deprecated features of the latest PHP release, figuring out how to make your site accessible to those with disabilities or language differences, or staying current on the pixel density of the latest iDevice release. By limiting your involvement to the design, and not having to touch a single line of code, you’re free of those headaches and can rest assured that the product you’re providing your valuable client is high quality, and professionally made.
BOLDelite prides itself in being able to offer their services at a rate that can be marked up and presented to the client for a profit. We prefer — rather, expect — our design clients to mark up our sub-contracted development work in order to keep prices in line with industry rates. Where there is time involved with coordinating between design and development, this markup will also help cover the overhead costs of project management.
Where BOLDelite is devoted 100% to web development, we are able to turn around products quickly. In some cases, you might see a finished product as soon as the next business day. We have the experience and resources to meet your deadlines*, whatever they may be.
When it breaks, we can fix it
When it breaks. Not if it breaks. There are countless factors impacting a website that are completely beyond your control. Eventually, something catastrophic will happen and you’ll be left scrambling to find a solution to a problem well beyond your job description. You are a designer, after all; recovering corrupt files or a broken database, or restarting an Apache web client, are not things taught in Photoshop 101. Having a resource like us is invaluable in providing a timely resolution for your clients’ problems.
The Final Product Is Just Plain Better
When parties are able to focus on tasks which are in line with their strengths and experience, the end result is a product that was completed faster, more efficiently, and with a higher degree of quality and accuracy. This separation of specialties ultimately lends a product that’s completed sooner, cheaper, and better. What client doesn’t want that?
“But, I think I can do it myself…”
Standards-compliant, efficient, secure web development is a result of years of experience, and the products created before an individual achieves that level of experience often have unnecessarily-bloated code that runs slow, doesn’t display properly on many devices, isn’t W3C compliant, and may even be open to cyber attacks.
A surprisingly large percentage of our business is devoted to fixing sites that were previously built by inexperienced people. Whether it’s correcting hundreds (even thousands, in some cases) of validation errors, or completely rebuilding sites from scratch that have been infected by malware beyond repair — often the result of inexperience-related oversight — it keeps us busy. There is truth behind the saying “know enough to be dangerous,” and it certainly applies to web development.
More Design Projects For You
Yes, you read that right; taking programming work off your plate can lead to more design projects for you.
Sending your designs to BOLDelite for development helps establish a mutually beneficial, collaborative relationship between us. We constantly have a shortage of good designers, and we’re excited to be able to get design work off our plate and into the hands of a professional designer, like yourself.
Why Waste Your Time On Something You Aren’t Great At?
Bottom line: if you’re a creative designer, why spend your time doing anything but design the products you enjoy? Leave the coding to us. Contact us today to see how BOLDelite’s 15+ years experience can help take the hassle out of your website projects.
*Turnaround varies and is largely dependent upon budget limitations and project scope.
