Describe a recent project you are fond of. How long did it take?
One of our first clients (2002), The Long Island Game Farm, is in the middle of a website redesign.

Do not base your decision on price alone. We pride ourselves on providing value without compromising quality and results.
What questions should customers think through before talking to professionals about their project?
Especially in the case of larger projects, it is essential to have a full understanding of the scope of the project and for the professional to be able to properly estimate the number of hours, that will be needed to complete the project. This is highly important when it comes to technical work, such as programming.
