Custom Web Design vs. Website Templates
What’s Right for Your Business?
Your website is a powerful communication platform that allows you to market your brand 24/7 and connect with clients from across locations. However, not all sites guarantee your desired return on investment (ROI). The primary consideration is choosing between a website template and a custom design website. By choosing custom website design packages, you build a website around your specific customer journey and brand messaging.
A website template is a pre-made web design that allows developers to plug in content into a sophisticated framework built through HTML or CSS. You can edit limited features, such as colors, font styles and images. But aside from these, what you see is what you get. Although ready-made templates help you save time and money, they lack flexibility and uniqueness.
A custom design website, on the other hand, allows you to establish and express your brand through tailored page elements that align with your objectives. Besides, custom web design in Saigon cost is relatively higher than website templates, but they offer numerous benefits that give you a competitive edge. A custom WordPress website design is more search engine-friendly, customer-centric, unique and scalable than built-in templates.

How much will my website / web app cost?
The price for a custom website or web application is not unlike a car. The price depends on many variables: the degree of customization, number of user types, API system integrations, unique business logic, functions, creative direction and the number of unique pages required.
The majority of startups can start with a very simple 1-5 page website to begin with and a growing business should consider 10-30 pages with a defined marketing budget.
Similarly with web designers, not all operate to the standard of quality that we demand. We specialize in hand crafted web design with custom user experiences (UX), UI design systems, research and advanced code optimizations to help your website load super fast and rank well in Google. UX Design is absolutely crucial in the process of designing your site, as you not only need a responsive site, but you need powerful web design which will convert users through CRO optimization.

How long does it take to build a website / app?
Our project timelines typically range from 1-2 weeks for a startup website landing page or a homepage re-design and between 2-8 weeks for larger website design and web application projects.
In some cases, larger websites or apps require a longer timeframe. On average a medium-sized custom business website will take approximately 4-10 weeks to research, design and build.
Why is branding important?
Branding is your identity — it is what your audience associated with your business. It touches everything from your creative website design right down to the UI Design systems and emails you deliver to your customers. This is why it’s so important to get it right, and this is why our branding and print services have become so popular with our clients.
Branding is an organization’s equivalent of character, personality, a voice and the all important first impression to your customers. Great branding goes far beyond just a logo; at a glance it communicates a feeling, a culture, a color palette, a narrative tone and a demographic to your viewers. Dig a little deeper and a great brand reveals values, soul, a story, integrity and the character of a company.
Good branding is rarely an accident or unconsidered, it is a well thought out modus operandi of an organization. Mix your business identity with powerful and creative web design, and you’ve got a remarkable combination, which allows your website to speak for your brand. We’ve seen great success from this, offering quality solutions for online catering and ordering through creative web design. Speak to us about branding.
