Website Desktop Responsiveness + Lovage 4.0
Time to Level Up! Below, learn about where Lovage Website Design and Development is going in 2022 and how this will impact your business's website design.
Watch the video above for a visual representation of this new, higher level work we are jumping into, for you!
In a few years, once all major platforms have adjusted for complete desktop responsiveness, we believe websites without such will feel like "old tech."
Custom Desktop (and tablet) (and mobile) is intricate, very detailed work which must be completed by experts. We are talking every element on your website custom designed to move within a space as it shifts.
This is complex, time consuming and, of course, additional work to designing every space, element, interaction, function, and connection on a website.
In order to maintain the integrity of design, function, SEO and Google Indexing Stability - Lovage will no longer be handing off sites for clients to manage completely on their own.
Instead, you will be able to update certain spaces via databases in your backend such as your Team Members or Services. But you will not have access to the editor - it is simply too complex across multiple spaces!

INVESTMENT FOR DESIGN & DEVELOPMENT & MAINTENANCE
$25k 5-Page Brochure Style Websites will start at $25k with development time of 3 - 6 Months for Basic, Starter Development. Higher Level, Advanced Interaction Design (see video) will start at $50k and take more like 6-8 months.
$10k Single-Page Brochure Style Websites will start at $10k and take 2 - 3 Months. Single Page Designs May Have Additional Dynamic Spaces.
ADDITIONAL PAGES, SPACES, FEATURES, and FUNCTIONS Will be added on to budget and timeline.
MONTHLY RETAINER A monthly retainer will be in place for management of Google Indexing, Platform Hosting, and Periodic Design Refinement. A website is a living thing and design evolves! It is also important to keep up with Google Indexing and how that data connects to the SEO Settings Relevance on your website.
EDITORX vs WEBFLOW Lovage will continue to serve our Wix-appreciating customers on Wix Classic and New or Moved builds on Wix's EditorX. Webflow will be encouraged for those willing to leap into the new. It is faster and slicker (and a considerably higher budget investment!).
