Who works at Acme Design?

Acme Design was founded in 2018 by Ash Blankenship. As Founder and CEO, Ash brings two decades of client work and has helped dozens of clients build strong brands through websites, logos, print, and email marketing. He works one-on-one with clients and manages front-end design.

Occasionally, Acme Design utilizes assistance from freelancers for back-end development and other project tasks. We also refer clients to professional photographers and copy writers, as needed.

What is your process?

We’ve carefully crafted our project process over the years to be efficient. We have a four-step process.

• Conversation: During this first phase, we work with clients to gain an understanding of their needs and goals, and to gauge how their clients or customers will use the site.

• Content: We work with clients to gather all content for the site design and build. This includes copy and images.

• Design & Build: The third step is the design and build phase, where we create wireframes, which act as a blueprint for the site design. Once the client approves the design, we build out the site.

• Test & Deploy: We  do a final walkthrough with the client before moving to the final stage, which is to test and deploy the site.

How much does a website cost?

We understand that having a new website designed and built is a big investment. While our rates depend on the scope of work, our full scale projects start at $5,000. We work with each client to understand their needs and goals and to help build a website that has a return on the investment. We judge our success by our client’s success, so when a client makes more money from the website than we did creating it, we know we got it right.

How long does the process take?

During the initial conversation phase of working with clients, we will better be able to gauge the amount of time it will take to complete the project. Some projects have seen a turnaround time of 3 to 6 weeks, while other projects have taken anywhere from 3 to 6 months or longer.

Can the website rank high in Google’s search results?

All of our website builds fully integrate Search Engine Optimization (SEO). This means at site launch, your website is fully enabled to make best use of SEO and rank well among search results.

Is hosting included?

Yes, we offer either monthly or annual plans that include hosting, site editor licenses, and more.

Will you maintain the site or will we be responsible for maintenance?

All of our websites can be built with an easy to manage content management system (CMS) that allows our clients to easily update website content in real time with absolutely no web designer or coding skills required. With an easy to update website, clients simply go to the editor and start making changes right there on the web page. Contact us to request a demo.

In addition, Acme Design can manage client's website content for an hourly rate.

What are some of the benefits in having Acme Design build our website?

At Acme Design we value not just design and ROI for our clients, we also understand that the websites should be reliable. This is why we build using the gold standard of web design tools and hosting is the very best value for the service available.

Any website Acme Design builds can easily incorporate a blog, portfolio, or any other data source designed to perfectly match the client site's look and feel.

All sites are also hosted on the fastest hosting on the internet, with world-wide content distribution and the data is secure as the hosting has SSL enabled.

If a client decides in the future to move their website to a different platform, the website and data can be exported.
