If it’s not listed here then please don’t hesitate to get in touch and ask, the more you work with us the more you will realise what you once thought was out of your reach is well within it, and we can deliver on schedule and on budget!
All the services we provide are bespoke so without meeting our potential client it is difficult to put a hard and fast pricelist out there, but we are currently working on putting ‘standard packages together’ at the moment.We have put a rough guide on the pricing page but guaranteed once we’ve had our initial conversation something will be available that just fits the bill for your business requirements which may change the quotation, rest assured all work undertaken shall and should be documented so that you as the client has peace of mind and is totally clear on cost and for our records we know exactly what to expect from each other.
Heres a guide to the cost of getting your business online remember any and ALL of our modules are available as a bundle or as single products you are not tied to any particular package, the best part of all is that all or sites are tablet/mobile friendly! #AsStandard. The Equal Design team are in talks at the moment with various host’s , the “Gold & Premium” packages will be cloud hosted. I am drafting a post about the advantages over shared linux boxes that we are using at the moment. An email will of course be going out to all our existing clients beforehand to give them the choice of upgrading hosting or staying where they are. (that email will be going out in the next week (update the discussion is taking longer than 1st thought,apologies for the delay of final pricing.)
This was such an excellent recommendation from linked in I thought it deserved front-page status!
Thanks to Graham Lancaster : Company Director and Head of Centre Maxam Training Ltd.
“Matt was recommended to me by another local business owner who, like me, relies heavily on their website design to draw in clients. Matt has many years’ experience as a website designer and manager.
“His graphic design background as well as an obvious expertise in IT, web design and e-marketing is evident by the quality of his work and an ability to quickly solve problems whilst minimising any disruption to other areas of business. In addition to all this, Matt offers exceptional value for money and never lets you down when you need some quick time advice. I would recommend him without reservation.”

Mid to late 2012 both Graham and myself had decided the Maxam Training website which includes a distance learning module, was ready for a refresh and a new look! This site was originally built around 3 or 4 years ago so “it was ready for it” here’s a screenshot of how the site looks today, still with a few small tweaks to finish up but it’s almost there and I’m sure you’ll agree its a big step forward for Maxam and Equal alike!
Thank You for your continued business and support, as valued partners and friends have a FANTASTIC 2014!!!
Time for a refresh! Re-branding Equal Design.
We have been around some years now and looking back over the files we have used in the last 6/7 years are sometimes cringeworthy and sometimes cool! Either Way its a learning curve and with the web evolving so quickly your company needs to be more proactive and less reactive to keep ahead of the game.
Personally I can’t help it at any chance I crank up Adobe’s creative suite and start messing around with different and new concepts that not only can we use in our own branding, (and re-branding) the techniques used are almost always carried through to at least one customer site so everybody benefits from me being a self confessed design/internet junkie!
Keep an eye out here for new ways to get the message across to your client base things such as geotagging, insights on social media as these tools are making the job of a web developer easier and more important to the end client to supply them with the information and leads they need so much for their businesses to survive this ever changing and morphing internet landscape. Logo design is one of the first skills we developed online, coupled with learning the Adobe creative suite inside out has armed us with the technical skills we possess today which helps us re-brand well known companies.
So for now I’ll not check into internet rehab just yet as its a benefit for myself and more importantly my clients! :) I quite like this custom WordPress it may be around a while when I have the typography sorted out!(This is a work in progress when I settle on one i’m sure you’ll know as it will be probably, in your face a little) As Google like all things fresh and up to date we will still change around a theme for the foreseeable future! We have rebranded and relaunched dozens of companies over the years not one has looked back and regretted refreshing their corporate identity!

Even if your business is just a dream at the moment you may realise it is a lot closer to reality than you think! EQUAL WEB DESIGN AND PRINT was founded because in my former position I became tired of hearing how “good friends were getting tied into long and expensive contracts with huge upfront fee’s.” ( and the webs they had were Basic to say the least!!

Responsive Web Design
We realise mobile web and responsive Web Design are quite confusing for the occasional browser of the internet. So here it is in a simple breakdown The site to the right (gratuitous self promo) The 1st and largest image in the background is my 27” screen filled with only the website ignore all the tabs! Next on the same screen I’ve just dragged it around to be quite small (probably tablet sized. Notice everything comes in to the centre together it stays symmetrical all the way Lastly still on the same 27” screen I’ve dragged the window down to mobile phone size! Still very useable everything drops inline the graphics are stripped a little. and there’s a green button appeared in the bottom right corner. the user simply hits that, and they are calling you the browser simply thinks its on a mobile device because of the screen resolution! …That’s responsive. A mobile site is built solely for mobiles it is a completely separate site developed at VERY inflated prices!!
Web Design: We operate on a 50/50 principle 50% upfront 50% on ‘go live’ of your website.

Equal Design and Print Preston are based in Leyland, we have however worked with clients from USA (Currently) Portugal, and Canada, Australia, who knows where next? With the power of today’s internet the boundaries of geographical location are dwindling away as we all become more connected faster than ever before, this truly is a digital revolution!
The internet era is ever evolving and changing the way people engage with business also the way business engages with potential customers Equal Design and Print recognise this as an invaluable opportunity.
The UK also carries out far more retail online than any other major economy. Some 13.5% of all purchases were done over the internet in 2010, according to BCG, and this is projected to rise to 23% by 2016. Last year 12% of web purchases were made via mobile devices which is also set to grow massively, this is why it is essential to place your business firmly in the web arena or risk losing a large percentage of sales to the internet. Which is a good enough reason alone to research where your area of the web is, no matter how Niche’ you think the product or service you sell or provide is! In fact that would work in your advantage online, as you have a worldwide audience to capture.
