Who will provide the logo for your website? (Tick appropriate box)
I have the original graphic design files that were used to create our logo.
Who will provide the copy/text for your site? (Tick appropriate box)
I will have professionally prepared text ready for use.
Note: We have computer software which can quickly extract word text from scanned or hard copy documents for cut and paste to Web Sites. This method is not suitable if the text overlays complex graphics.
Who will provide the images for your site?
I have all the images ready as a jpg format or other format compatible with Photoshop.
I would like Business Websites Direct to provide all stock photos and or digital photography for my site.
I would like Business Websites Direct to discuss the option of supplying photographs.
Note: there will be an additional cost for the supply of stock photographs in some cases. We can take professional photographs and video if required. The cost of this service will vary depending upon complexity. We use the latest Nikon Digital SLR cameras with HD video facilities and use Photoshop software and graphic design packages for image manipulation.
Please fill in the form with as much detail and accuracy as possible. This initial effort in is aimed to benefit you in cost savings in the longer term. It also benefits us because it will give a more accurate assessment of your needs and costs. In other words it takes a lot of the guesswork out of the process.

Site Structure (Navigation)
We usually design the navigation scheme in collaboration with our clients by gathering all the content together and discussing how best to group the information to allow easy user navigation and achieve the primary objectives of the site. However you might not have all your content together at this stage, so to allow us to work out the scale of the project it will help us if you can name the major areas of your proposed site.
Are there any ideas on the proposed navigation scheme?
We have already created a navigation scheme in-house (if so please return to us with this document).
Describe the main navigation labels for your site. (See example below)
Example of a navigation scheme below:
