The right image can convey nuances that words cannot.
Graphic design is more than just moving colors around on paper or screen until you like it, however. A sense of balance, proportion, and motion draw the eye where it is intended.
Great design can't be programed. Expensive software is just a tool, and does not replace the human mind and heart.
We can design your logo from scratch, or render an existing logo to make it web-ready & re-sizable from business card to billboard. We speak Apple, the language of the graphics industry.
From a business card to a brochure, a flyer to a full-blown newspaper, we have the tools and the connections to bring your message to the printed page, and beyond that to the new electronic media.
E-books have different requirements than do the printed page. Translating your publication properly to a downloadable format involves more than running the printer's PDF through a filesize reduction filter.
From modifying a clip art tiff to hand-drawn illustrations, we can craft an image that's worth at least 1,000 words...
From a brochure to a newsletter to a full-blown newspaper, we have the tools and the connections to bring your message to the printed page, and beyond that to the new electronic media.
Some of our work:
Our basic commercial site starts at $850 for those who will be hosting with us. (Hosting priced separately).
(These are ballpark figures, and subject to change)
We can give your site a home on the Web. We don’t pretend to be the cheapest solution out there, but usually the cheapest solutions have hidden costs. We offer what is called "managed hosting", so compare apples to apples.
As it says on the front page, we serve a limited clientele. We're not a big outfit, so we can't really afford to "make it up in volume". Hosting a website means that your information is available to the world, 24/7. Even while you sleep. It's a big job, but we're up to the task ;)
The rates below are ballpark figures, based on payment in advance on a quarterly basis. Discounts are available for prepayment. Prices subject to change, yada, yada, etc... These prices assume we're building your site, and doing updates. Yes, you can get your site hosted for less than $10 a month, elsewhere: but you'll be doing the maintenance yourself, most likely...
We can make your web page load quickly, sparkle with interactivity and animation without confusing or sending your visitors off to another site.
No matter if it’s a small personal, or an extensive commercial site, your web presence is important to you. That’s why Lost Province Productions should be your choice for the design and hosting of your website.
Most of our hosting includes a bit of updating, in case you want to add a link, or change out a picture, or change a price or two. However, the addition of numerous pages after a site has been "wrapped"(see the fine print), or a redesign of the site, will be billed at $65/hr, with a $25 minimum.
If you would like to handle your own updates, just let me know, and I'll arrange for you to have FTP access, or access through a browser-based interface.
If you're going to be doing a fair amount of changes to the content, but not the appearance of the site (like a daily or weekly menu change for a restaurant), there is also the option of a CMS, or Content Management System such as NewsPro or Moveable Type. There's a bit of up front expense, but you can keep information current without paying us for lots of updates. See our Creative Services page for more details.
Optional & Extra, but Available: (See our Creative Services page)
Most extra services are priced at $65/hr
Flash Animation and extensive graphic work. Copy Writing
Photography priced $65/hr plus travel expenses.
Content Management System such as News Pro or Moveable Type will have a setup charge and add to the site design charge.
