Web Design Contract

Ryan Ostrander Design and Illustration

What I, Ryan Ostrander, agree to provide

I agree to create a fully custom website for use by Whistler Center for Carbohydrate Research – Purdue University. The website will be designed and built to the clients specifications, including:


Design Phase

Upon receiving initial payment of 50% ($4,875), signed contract and initial direction, project enters the design phase, which includes:

Design mockups ,to be provided within 3 weeks of receiving payment and signed contract, including one front page design and three inside page designs. Client will have the option to approve or request revisions. All designs must be formally approved before proceeding to the development stage.

Development Phase

After the website design has been approved, I will begin to develop the client's new website in a testing environment on my server. Once complete, a link will be provided to the client to view the site in progress.

The development stage typically takes between 6-8 weeks to complete.

Refinement phase

After a link has been provided to the client to view the site in progress, a user login will be created and a meeting will be scheduled to provide training on the Wordpress administration panel, allowing the client to add/edit content directly on the in-progress website. I will then work with the client to add any outstanding content and make requested revisions.

The refinement stage timeline can vary depending on the client's responsiveness, as well as the number and complexity of changes requested to the website.


After the website has been completed and approved, I will take the necessary steps to make the site live and activate any remaining functionality.

Client will be responsible for providing login credentials to necessary domains and/or hosting vendors as needed, or will provide contact information for individual(s) who will manage changes to domains and/or hosted files.

Additional Notes

Company Overview

I work as an independent contractor, with 18 years of professional experience in graphic design and web design/development. Please see the following links for more information: My portfolio website: https://ryanostrander.com My resume: https://ryanostrander.com/ryanostrander/resume/

How I will meet your objectives

I've created dozens of custom websites. Each comes with its own set of objectives and challenges. Upon receiving notification that you've selected me to build your new site, I'll schedule a phone call to discuss the project in more detail, and will develop a plan to address each of your project objectives.

Overview of CMS

I build fully custom Wordpress themes. Custom themes are lighter and faster than pre-built templates, and can be tailored more specifically to each client. I work with the client to create custom posts and fields that make it easy to add/edit/remove content in the future, without having to worry about consistently styling pages or posts.

Design/Development Strategy

Because I work independently, and come from a multi-faceted design and development background, I provide the advantage of having a single point of contact for all phases of the design and development process. I'll work with you to create a clean and unique design, and then will be your point of contact all of the way through the development process.


I typically estimate between 12-16 weeks for a full website design/development project. Timelines vary depending on the client's responsiveness, project complexity and revision requests.

My Team

Just me!
