You don’t have to do everything by yourself. If you are running out of time or simply aren’t that enthusiastic about the coding process, you might be willing to consider special “coding services” to get your job done in time. Particularly since there are dozens of such services, the price is usually quite reasonable and worth the time you save, headaches you avoid and further projects you can keep working on. However, whether the result is sophisticated or not, is the matter of personal experience – at least it should be.
The companies and designers listed below do not design web-sites; instead they convert drafts and sketches (mostly in the Photoshop-format, .psd) into the (X)HTML-Code (with CSS-styling). The prices depend on the desired processing time. The faster you’d like to get the work done, the more expensive the coding will be. Some service providers offer optional extras – for instance, AJAX-Scripting and further interactivity.
