HOW MUCH DOES A CUSTOM web Design COST in Calgary?
We are often asked to give a ballpark figure regarding how much a web design project will cost. While this is a very reasonable request, the answer usually frustrates clients because it truly depends.
Hint: keep reading as there are additional resources below.
In this article, we talk about web design costs in Calgary, Alberta.
Unique Requirements which impact Web Design costs
Every web design project and engagement is a little bit different. Each client will have different needs and requirements.
Here are a few examples that might impact the cost and complexity of a web design project:
- Does your business require a general information website with only a few pages? This is fairly inexpensive and easy to set up.
- Do you require blogging functionality and the ability to update your own content (WordPress option)? The complexity of these types of web design projects increases slightly and so does the effort and cost. We wrote about the difference between Bootstrap (static website) and WordPress (dynamic blogging platform) because this question comes up often.
- Are you planning on selling products on your website and need an e-commerce solution? For these projects, we typically recommend WordPress + WooCommerce or the Shopify platform. This will increase the complexity even further and also the cost and effort of the web design project.

Making the decision regarding what your current business needs are and what they will be in the future is a tough decision to make. For example, choosing the static informational website option (#1) may tie your hands and force you to do a complete redesign in the future.
