ActWin offers a full range
of design services. Many of these are done in-house by our staff.
For some projects, we work with outside freelancers. In any case,
we handle the project management and billing so that you have just
one point of contact.

The design process varies a
lot depending upon the customer. It typically takes four to six
weeks. We start by interviewing you to determine what impression
you want to give people about your company and who your intended
audience is. We also decide what set of navigation buttons are needed.
We will then create three or more design proposals for you to consider.
Based on your input, we take one of these designs and make revisions
and changes. At this point we may arrange for a photographer or
an illustrator to produce artwork for your site. We may license
stock photography for your use. After a couple of rounds of revision,
we usually have a satisfactory home page. Then artwork for interior
content pages is created based on the home page design. Finally,
your text is put into the pages to complete the site.
All sites are created
as works-for-hire. You own the finished artwork and may use it however
you wish. You may create variations on the site and adapt it for
use in print and other media.
