The most popular service we provide at Reason8 is our customised designs. Most businesses have some idea how they want their website to look. There may be logos or branding they need the website to tie in with. But most of all they want their website to be unique. The Reason8 website builder gives you the best of both worlds, an easy to use updatable website with a customised look and feel.
Commissioning any type of design work can be costly. To make commissioning a bespoke design affordable our service is subsidised for all our clients. We charge a small fee of £40+VAT regardless of the amount of work, or how complex the design is. This enables you to effectively manage your design budget and prevent any nasty surprises at the end.
If you already have a template or would like us to make changed to an existing template in our library the price is reduced to just £30+VAT.
The design we create runs through the whole of the website regardless of the number of pages you have. It includes the main header / banner, footer and background colours.
The main area of design is the website header. This can be as simple or as complex as you require. You can choose the background colours to give your website its overall theme. You can choose the text you want to include as well as the font, colour, and position. We can also incorporate your logo, images, icons or animation
Your header doesn’t need to be static either. All aspects of your header can be animated. You could merge many images in the background to create a slideshow effect. Animated characters or effects can be included. Or why not make your text really stand out by animating it to create a flashing or rolling effect. The opportunities really are as wide as your imagination.
The hardest part of commissioning your design, is knowing exactly what to ask for. Some website owners know what they want but are unsure how to describe their requirements. The following suggestions will help you get started and create a focus for your design.
Some businesses don’t have a clear idea of how they want their website to look. Some just have a logo but don’t know how it could be incorporated into a website template.
Our designers have been creating bespoke templates for many years. They can bring design elements to the templates that you may not have previously considered. If you don’t have a clear idea then forward what you have and tell us the style you want, such and cool and contemporary and let our designers weave their magic.
It generally takes 3-5 working days for a template to be completed. Once finished it will be uploaded to your website and we will notify you by email.
Often our designers hit the nail on the head first time. But occasionally you may want elements of the design changed. Once the template is added you have around 2-3 weeks to request any amendments to the design.
Our aim is to ensure that you are 100% happy with the finished result. As a result we offer a money back guarantee if you are not totally satisfied.

These days, websites without background videos run the risk of appearing old-fashioned. Even dinosaurish,
There’s nothing wrong with dinosaurs, or with looking like one. Dinosaurs are cool. Unless they’re chasing you of course.
But our new background videos have landed, exploded and changed the game. They have wiped out the old standards for beautiful websites, and have replaced them with a new standard that will leave all other websites looking like fossils.
Luckily, both our existing clients and our new ones have access to this brilliant new feature we’ve introduced, and we’d like to share its benefits with you today.
