I have to say I know next to nothing about designing a web or interface for a database. Myself and my coleague are thinking about a start up company based on collecting, organising and publishing information on some products and services in a specific industry. I'd like to get some quotes for the design of the website which is the core of our business. Whether or not our business will take off depends on the budget cost we receive.
The website will have around 10 core pages and then around 100 typical web pages, each of them represent a category. Under each category we will have different products and services, say between 2 to 50 products depending on the category.
We are interested in simple minimal design without any flash or shiney eye catching design. We are interested in functionality and clarity more than anything else.
I have looked around a little bit and found out this sort of projects are normally completed using mysql and php. We are openminded on any suggestions you make though. We require a content management system so that we can take over the upate and maintenance once the project is finished.
Thank you very much for reading and for your interest and looking forward to receiving some quotes ( I have no idea abut the cost, please ignore the range I posted)
