how much does a website or other project cost?

blog-costour prices vary depending on the project, and we will take on big or small. since each web design is uniquely made, and each client has different needs and specifications, the price varies depending on the project size and scope. sometimes there is complex programming, or an intricate design is requested, or the internal pages of the site have a lot of content, needs and organizational overhaul, etc. sometimes only a blog design, or a logo or printed item is needed.

how can i have animation on my site?

blog-animationfor many years, biondo studio was well-known for creating flash websites and/or flash homepages for websites. quite a bit has changed in recent years with the prominence of mobile devices, that do not support flash software. luckily, for those clients of ours who had flash sites created, even a decade ago, we programmed in a default page for those few computers that did not have the flash player installed. that had proved to be a very good move because most of those sites are still completely functional on both desktop and mobile, even though they use flash software.

can you offer any assistance in the voiceover business?

blog-vo2although we have done dozens of voiceover sites over the years, we are not really part of the voiceover industry ourselves. i do know a good voice when i hear one, but we stick to the visuals and the programming. we’ve worked very closely with an amazing voiceover manager named celia siegel for a decade or so who consults with clients to figure out the best aspects of their voice and how to brand and market them to the industry. after that, that’s when we come in and collaborate with celia and her clients to bring their ideas to life. it’s a really fun and productive process, and if think you need assistance in voiceover beyond getting your website together, celia’s definitely the one to call.
