This is a question I still find myself asking and it is one of those that will not go away. There is no price standardisation on the web? Prices for websites vary from person to person and from country to country. The market for website design is fully globalised, currency and its relative value are a big influence on what can be charged. When competing for work you are competing against developers from countries where the average cost of living can be as much as 182% cheaper, with rent nearly 400% cheaper.
The weekend of the 22nd and 23rd of October 2016 marked the Auto Trade Expo in Dublin. Premier Design were involved in the creation of an online and offline system that allowed registrants to be able to have badges printed on the day of the event as well as at home prior to the event. All the badges featured individual details and barcodes containing unique codes. We are happy to say that the software was a complete success. Faultlessly handling over 4000 registrants over the events two days.
For the past few weeks essential WordPress and Woocommerce upgrades have been carried out at The Grape Store.

The most important consideration is the internationalisation of the WordPress themes and custom plugins.
I have recently being employed by John Lawrence of Infocandy Animations to maintain and evolve their website at infocandy.co.uk. The work is on a hourly rate and is occasional. I thought it would be interesting to share some of their animation reels on my website.
