Postby SingRed » Mon, 14 Feb 2011 2:38 pm

Hi,

I need to get a simple static webpage designed. Could anyone be so kind as to recommend a good local (& ideally cheap) local designer/design firm ?

Appreciatre the help.

Cheers

Do it yourself!

I am using Yahoo SiteBuilder which works pretty well for static sites - it is designed for dummies.

The catch is that you need to point your domain name at the yahoo servers - not a big deal and pretty inexpensive for them to host. They will also give you a free email address to use.

Good luck :)

doing it yourself is cheap and gives you ultimate control
Its not such a steep learning curve as you may think and certainly doable with a simple static web page

There's a lot of free html web editors ( software) out there not to mention tons of html "how to's"

My favorite is coffee cup

For a static page, you can make it in Microsoft Word, and save it as a web page. Truly a WYSIWYG solution, a no brainer, as long as you are not trying for something complex.

just come across some more ( easy options) and thought id post just in case anybody else reads this thread

For static pages
register.com offer great templates that are easy to edit / customise to suit your needs via their "on-line" editor . You can also register and host with them

For dynamic (flash)pages try
wix.com
again free templates and you can set up a free account to mess around with first . Some really impressive templates and by far the easiest and user friendly "on-line" editor I've seen.

Good luck

You could also check out sites like templatemonster.com, they have a wide range of templates.

By the way, if you want to have someone to help out with design still. I might have someone to help out low hundreds.

Try www.weebly.com ,
30 templates to choose from.
Drag and drop. - dummy proof.
I created my website in 5 hours.
The best thing is that it is free, no hosting fees. No need for domain name.
Except that you need to have www.(Your name).weebly.com
