Zuk Design ~ Custom Website Design
A user-friendly experience for you - and your customers
Every website is unique. Like your business.
The world wide web is still a big mystery to many - there’s so much to know and it is easy to get overwhelmed. That’s why we’re here. We see it as part of our job to educate clients and help you feel more comfortable and less confused with the whole website experience. To view some of our client websites, click through the slideshow above.
What most of our customers want now is a website they can manage themselves (CMS), that is designed for all devices (Responsive), and shows up on Google (SEO). Hence, moving forward our sites will all now be Content Management (CMS), Responsive and, as always, completely SEO’d (Search Engine Optimized).
What is a Content Management System (CMS)?
A website you can edit yourself - change pictures and words, update text when you want to, and even add pages. A user-friendly CMS will save you maintenance costs.
What is Responsive?
A responsive website is a website that is properly designed to change size and shape to fit the device it is being viewed on: desktop, tablet, or mobile (phones). When designing for Responsive, we are actually designing 3 sites.
What is Search Engine Optimization (SEO)?
’Just build it and they will come’ does not apply to websites. Having a website does not guarantee that your customers will find your business. A properly optimized site will ensure your site comes up in the search engines. This involves several factors that include the text on your pages and the meta tags in the coding. Zuk Design web designers have Certified SEO training.

The A,B,Cs of a website - 3 things you need for a website
A. Domain name
This is your "www" or website address. Domains cost from $10 - 25 each. Try to buy a domain that matches your busienss name, but if your name is long, buy a shorter version too. Always buy the .com and .ca. You can have more than one domain name - but you will have to choose which one is your ’default’ .
Always buy your domains yourself, with your own credit card, so they belong to you.
You have to pay to get your website up on the internet, like you pay for your phone or cable service. Cost is usually $10/month (paid annually) - if you are paying more than this, you are paying too much. We will set you up for hosting, or move you if your current hosting is not sufficient or fast enough.
C. Your website design
This is what we do for you; your website itself. This what what your customers will see when they go to your domain: all your pages, content and images.
How much does a website cost?
This is always the first thing our customers want to know. Our websites start at $1500: this include 3 pages, Responsive, CMS and complete SEO for every page. Additional pages cost $350 each. Once your website is built, there are no ongoing maintenance fees. Our goal is to help you be independant with your website - that’s why all our websites are Content Management. We train you how to use your website. However, should you need maintainence, we are always here for you.
