bespoke website designs

Add-on bespoke css or template builds

Once we have decided on the functionality of your website we may need to update your template to suit. There are hundreds, if not thousands of free and paid for templates out there to choose from, or you may want a bespoke one that we create especially for you.

Quite often I just need to create some new css code to make sure the new extensions fit in with the look and feel of your existing site and doesnt just look like a bolted-on freebie.

Joomla! layout overrides

Joomla!'s excellent templating system allows us to create 'layout overrides' so you can select different layouts for different pages. I can design and then build bespoke layouts for you.
