How to calculate how much a new website will cost?

The most effective way for us to understand the expected result of the project is to specify the scope of work required or to fill out an inquiry and send it to us.

If it’s a simple project, all you need to do is send us a sitemap for all of the pages within the scope of the project.

Here are a few steps to follow if you don’t know where to start your scope of work:

  1. Send us a list of the pages you want to include on your site (sitemap / info architecture). It doesn’t have to be detailed or final. That’s how we can assess the required workload.
  2. Send us 2-3 pages that you like and which you think represent the vision of your new website both aesthetically and functionally.
  3. Tell us, do you need a logo as well or maybe all branding? Word content, photos or videos, or will we work with your current resources?
  4. If you already have ready-made designs for your website (Figma, Sketch, XD etc.) and need a WordPress design, send them to us for review, they will be a good reference point.
  5. Please let us know if you think anything in your compilation may require additional coding time. (example: price calculator, API integrations, advanced search)

Our team will analyze all this information and create a job scope proposal that we can discuss and accurately quote.

What is WordPress?

WordPress is a professional fully open source online content creation and management tool. It allows us to complete tasks faster and constantly improve the quality and creativity of front-end projects.


Do you deal with graphics and brand identification - logos and content?

Yes, we specialize in logo design, brand identity and high-end sales sites.

We also write texts which help you describe yourself.

Can you help us refresh our brand without reinventing the wheel?

Of course, as soon as you feel that your brand requires cosmetic changes and modernisation, we are ready to help with this and emphasise the strengths of your identification, without disturbing the image that is already recognised by your customers.

Do you also create films and photos?

We come from the world of film, in which storytelling is of the essence. The Lodz Film School is a place where our artistic sensitivity and craftsmanship have developed.

We offer you films and photos created specially for your needs, which will be a coherent whole with the new project of your online presence.

The big advantage is that we, as a department, also deal with the production of videos and photos – without outsourcing.

What if I am unsure of my project or strategy?

If you are unsure about the design or strategy we have implemented, please let us know. We’re always available to talk about why we designed something a certain way or why your strategy is what it is.

We want to give you a feeling of certainty and satisfaction with the project. We also want the project to delight your customers and translate into your profit. If something is wrong, we will work it out together to find a solution that works.

What if we have a finished design, but we need someone to create or rebuild our site in WordPress, can we hire you?

Yes you can! We will need you to send us all the documentation so that we can review the complexity of the project, interactions and content. Then we will be able to present you a suitable cooperation proposal. If you want to convert your current site to WordPress, simply send us the domain of your current site so we can view it and relate to the topic.

Does my site load faster in WordPress?

If you’re currently unhappy with your site’s speed, we can probably speed it up considerably. Sometimes it is enough to properly compress the content of the site or organize the links and other things. As the vast majority of people currently display pages on mobile phones, the page should take up as little space as possible and be delivered from servers that are close to the location of display. This is achieved by CDN (Content Delivery Network), additionally protecting its content against attacks by mailware, spyware, etc.

Will migrating my website to WordPress have a negative impact on SEO?

If done correctly, it won’t. As long as the agency you’re working with follows best practices to maintain your current URL structure and implement accurate 301 redirects, you can avoid permanent negative effects and take advantage of the positive SEO effects of your reorganisation.

Do you only use WordPress for your projects?

Wordpress is one of the main tools in our process, but not the only one. We make sure to use the right tools for the job, depending on the scope of work and the solutions needed.

Our typical workflow is based on:

  • Figma (UX design, brand identification)
  • Adobe Illustrator (illustrations, logo)
  • Adobe After Effects (Lottie JS animation design and development)
  • Custom code
  • Final Cut, Compressor (video editing and export)
  • Adobe Photoshop & Lightroom (photo processing and export)
  • DIVI (front-end development and custom CMS)
  • Clickup (project management and progress tracking)

What influences the valuation of film and photo production?

We estimate the working time of people and the rental of tools that we use to make a movie and photos. We evaluate the rental of the location, acting, rights to the image, etc. issues that make up the sum expressed in zlotys.

We can make a film for you for EUR 1,500, a basic and quick report that lasts several hours. Take a look at our realizations – there is also such a proposal among them,

What are the payment terms for a typical project?

All films whose production is up to PLN 5,000 are payable in advance. We start work after the money is credited to our account.

Everything above this amount is negotiable and is planned according to the current needs and arrangements with the client.

Are additional fees / collateral required?

A film set is a system for the elimination of risky nodes in the process of its creation. In exceptional situations, when we are exposed to an increased risk in connection with the work performed, we may have to take out additional insurance, the scope of which is not included in the general terms and conditions of our basic liability, comprehensive and accident insurance. We determine this fact before taking the order and the amount of insurance for the implementation of activities.

Do we take pictures / shots from the drone?

Yes, we make various types of photos and videos using drones. We work with licensed and qualified pilots insured in the field of performing aviation activities using unmanned aerial vehicles, i.e. drones. We have a variety of equipment that will meet many requirements.
