What is Loopdash?

Loopdash is a design/development practice led by Gary Bunofsky, who oversees creative, dev, and strategy. Loopdash is composed of a selective group of collaborators that contribute to deliver an exceptional project outcomes.

What kind of projects do you work on?

We specialize in WordPress development. Often we find the most value working on web or branding revamps that translate into marketing website projects. We like to collaborate closely with founders or marketing/product leads. Most of our clients hire us for:

  • Brand / Visual Identity
  • Website Design
  • Website Development in WordPress or Webflow
  • Web App Development in Rails or React
  • On-retainer Support (long-term projects where we act as an outsourced dev team)

What does it cost to work with Loopdash?

We prefer to work on a fixed-cost for a majority of our projects. To give an accurate figure, we need to understand your requirements, scope, deliverables and timelines. With that being said, most projects range from $15-20K USD and take around 4-12 weeks to deliver. The minimum level of engagement is currently set at $10K USD.

Who owns the website and deliverables after the project?

Once the project is completed and paid in full you will own all assets and deliverables. We believe in providing our clients with complete ownership of their projects, which includes the website and brand identity.

What are the payment terms?

The payment schedule is broken down into three parts:

  • 50% is due at the very beginning of the project.
  • Another 25% is due at the first milestone, usually when design is approved.
  • The final 25% of the total amount is due when the project is launched.

It's important to note that there are some things that are not included in the project cost. These include:

  • Production costs for printed materials
  • Video or photography purchases
  • Typography or font licenses
  • Media buys, PPC or ad placements
  • Creation of video or photography assets
  • Hosting (this can be discussed before the project is launched)

Will my website be custom?

Yes it will. That's what we recommend. We use WordPress to build custom websites that offer a wide range of features and customization options. It is open-source, making it easy to customize, and has a range of well-supported, plugins to choose from (we don't use themes typically). WordPress is also easy to use and manage, making it a great choice for those with limited web development experience.

More often than not a custom WordPress build is better than using a pre-built theme or page builder like Elementor or Beaver or because it allows for a more customized and unique look and feel. Building a custom WordPress website also allows for more control over the design, content, and functionality of the website, as well as the ability to add custom plugins and themes to the website. Additionally, when building a custom WordPress website, you have the ability to add custom code, which can help to create a more dynamic and interactive website. Finally, custom WordPress websites are generally more secure than websites built using elementor or beaver builder, as they are built from the ground up.

Why do you use WordPress?

WordPress is the ideal solution for business owners and brands who need to build a website quickly and easily. It is user-friendly and requires no coding knowledge, with a vast library of plugins to choose from. Plus, WordPress is open source and free, meaning business owners can save money on web hosting and development costs. Additionally, it offers a wide range of customization options, allowing business owners to tailor their websites to their specific needs.

Can you build an app?

We can build anything that runs in the browser. We have built web-based apps that run on mobile, desktop and tablets. We don't do iOS or Android apps.
