Long Beach - Los Angeles

Web design that is affordable!

Welcome to my site. I am one person, not a big company. Because, I have very little over-head I am able to give you the best rate possible!

Whether you need something simple or complex Protasis Creative is here for you. A small budget should not prevent you from having a web-site that is professional looking and useful. Protasis Creative only takes on a reasonable amount of work. With very little overhead, the savings are passed on to you. My turn arounds vary depending on workload. Sample site setups with minimal customization can be turned around typically in 2-5 days. Custom sites are contigent to my overall schedule. Inquire about my schedule if you have a deadline. On average expect 10-30 day development time.

A quality professionally looking website from me can be as low as $200-300! (avoid those $1200-2400 agency prices!!!)
If, one of our sample sites is something that can work for you!

Face to Face Meetings

I am in Long Beach (temporarily in Whittier, will be back in Long Beach soon!). I may consider it if it is local and the rate works for it.

Custom Sites

If, one of our sample sites doesn't work for you, you can get a custom site for a little more!

Protasis Creative can create a site to meet your vision, your Photoshop layered file can be coded into a website or reference sites can be used for inspiration. There are many options and functions that are possible. Protasis Creative can help develop a website to meet your budget. A typical custom site starts at $600.00. This can include multiple mockup of your idea or proposal sites (to be decided when you book and per the rate), standard SEO, cross-browser debugging, site installation. CMS platforms - Wordpress. HTML5 sites are an option as well. I also have experience with Zen Cart, Joomla and Shopify.
