Here in the web design office of Studio Republic we have had to find a new chair and clear a desk for our newest recruit Tom Leman!
If you’re on a small budget, an off-the-shelf website theme definitely has a place. They are a low cost option, there are thousands of ready-to-use themes that cater to a range of businesses and users and are generally quick to implement. You can customise them to some extent with various extensions and plugins that add functionality to your website. Sounds great so far, right?
Studio Republic works with all sizes of companies, from major institutions like the Hampshire Chamber of Commerce right down to micro start-ups and we find passionate people across the spectrum. But how do you take your passion and translate it into a fully fledged business proposition?
If you’re lucky enough to have your own in-house website team you might assume that using an external web design agency is like bringing a polar bear to a picnic: it’s costly, unnecessary and introduces a whole lot of hassle.
