I’m from a web design/multimedia background. Most of these architectural companies probably don’t know that they can get a Â£5000 grant from the government to get themselves a web-site (some clients came to us from this position). They’re also too used to the stupidly high web costs that have floated around in the past, not realising that a web page with just their company identitiy could be fetched for as little as Â£200-Â£300 (ex hosting and e-mail, which might be Â£90 a year for US hosting, as opposed to Â£300 for Irish hosting).
And I’m NOT saying that I would do it. This is not me looking for work. There’s load of freelance folk around. If the companies keep it simple it’s only a day’s work, providing they agree on price and level of design (ie: we want it to look as good as “this page”) in advance.
So go for it people. And if want more info make a new thread and I’ll give it.
