Cygnus Web Designs is here to provide the novice web designer or new e-commerce site with a fast, beautiful and inexpensive custom look and set up using the wordpress framework. This site was born after the author designed several of her own sites from scratch and saw the need for a simpler and less costly alternative that would still provide the user with a custom look and feel as apposed to a pre-generated template used by many other sites. Our designs are one of a kind and based solely on your desires.
HOW THE PROCESS WORKS:
You will choose one of our packages listed on this web site. Then you will e-mail us with your specific desires for your theme.
Information we need will includes:
- Primary colors or color family you would like for your site
- Layout you desire such as 1, 2, or 3 columns and page driven (web or e-commerce) vs. post driven (blog) site.
- Images will be needed to build your custom header. Cygnus has thousands of photos that we can generate your header from based on your needs. However to make your site truly custom we recommend that you upload your own images to a free photo site such as photobucket or flicker or simply e-mail us your desired images and we will get started on your custom header.
- We will need the name and tag line or slogan of your shop and of course the domain name.
