If you would like to use our services all you need to do is inform us of the domain name you would like to use and send us a brief idea of your requirements. You can check domain name availability. We will then purchase the domain in your name, purchase the right hosting package for your project and then based on your guidance, design an initial web page for you.
This is then refined/changed in consultation with the client until a satisfactory design has been reached. We will then need you to forward content and images for your site and start to design the website for you.
For development of your website design or project, it is very important that all the content reaches Hooting Owl Studios within the stipulated time. In case you fail to provide content information, development time required by hooting owl studios for your web design or project may be extended.
The ideal proper content for your website design would consist of digital images on disk, (in jpeg, psd, tiff, eps, or ai format), text copy (your "about us", "company mission statement", or any other text information) on disk or CD, (preferably in Word format). This content will be worked into your website design or project in the most beneficial way possible, according to your requirements.
If this is not possible, then clear photos or brochures may be used for our development team to scan and optimize for use on your website. If this digital content is not provided to Hooting Owl Studios, additional fees may be included to cover the expense of content preparation.
