Website design for my private practice

Susie Lee
posted on 27/3/19
Now that I have a well designed portfolio, I’m able to showcase my services to potential clients. Wanted for Nothing has the social proof that they’re the top design agency in Los Angeles. Before working with WFN, I didn’t have a portfolio site for anyone to view. Now I have an engaging website that clearly shows clients and potential clients how I work with them. It’s a fantastic way for me to portray my work and it’s a source my referrals can turn to if they want to work with me.

What is it about the company that you appreciate the most?

This project was completed successfully and with a clear timeline to follow. I am in the process of working with them again on a new project. I love that Wanted for Nothing became my strategic partner and helps with all my digital needs.

What was it about the company that you didn't like which they should do better?

Nothing. I recommend Wanted for Nothing as a stellar design agency I trust and will absolutely recommend them to my colleagues

E-commerce development for fashion brand

Morgen John
posted on 16/4/19
We needed a complete revamp for our main brand. 1. Backend development improvements (help with automation) and 2. UX/UI enhancements for better CRO. Marcell and Nick worked with me throughout the e-commerce and digital strategy planning and execution phases for this project. They helped me design multiple landing pages for our marketing campaigns and fully rebuild our flagship e-commerce portal.

What is it about the company that you appreciate the most?

They understood how to take a complex process and simplified it to fit our needs. The team was also available to share full details and discuss feedback for what our firm wanted.

What was it about the company that you didn't like which they should do better?

I don't have anything that I would point out.

Executive Interview
Marcell Rekasi
Marcell Rekasi
Founder & CEO, Wanted for Nothing
Please introduce your company and give a brief about your role within the company?
I am Marcell Rekasi, the CEO and founder of Wanted for Nothing, a tech consultancy based in Los Angeles. At WFN, we focus on digital strategy, UX/UI design, and tailored software and e-commerce development. One of our biggest unique selling points is the strategic approach that we add to all of our projects. My team and I make sure that the digital products we create add value to our partners’ businesses. This could mean—helping you save time, increase revenue, optimize operations, enhance conversion rates, raise brand awareness, automate processes, etc.
What was the idea behind starting this organization?
My team of global entrepreneurs and I founded Wanted for Nothing because we saw a lack of compelling industry insights offered by traditional web design agencies. As our brand name suggests, we have everything that a business needs to grow on the digital front. We’ve built high-quality products for our startup and enterprise partners.
What is your company’s business model–in house team or third party vendors/ outsourcing?
Our company has around 25 people to date. We have offices in Europe and Los Angeles. Our structure is in-house, and we allocate dedicated teams for our projects.
How is your business model beneficial from a value addition perspective to the clients compared to other companies' models?
I think one of our greatest values besides creating award-winning products, is our ability to step in as digital strategists. The tech world is always changing at a rapid rate. And we know that to stay on top of the game, we need to constantly be creating and seizing new opportunities to help our clients win. During the planning process, we make sure that we conduct in-depth market research and propose or outline the unique value propositions that our client has against their competition. In this research phase, we work to uncover all the pain points that our client has, and we develop strategic solutions for both the short and long-term.
What industries do you generally cater to? Are your customers repetitive?
We have clients from multiple industries; however, our most popular project types are media portals, portfolio sites, e-commerce platforms, and custom applications (marketplaces, client portals, configurators, etc.).

In terms of repetitive customers, absolutely. After the ‘core’ project is finished, we stay with our customers to further enhance and support their digital product. One of our main channels for growth is through word of mouth referrals.
Mention the objectives or the parameters critical in determining the time frame of developing a web app.
Whenever you create a custom web application, the time frame is driven by the following general components:
● The complexity of the UX - design/planning phase might take 3 weeks to a couple of months, depending on how complex the project is.
● Responsiveness of the Client, especially during the UX/UI phase - how fast they can provide responses, feedback, decisions, and assets.
● How “monolith” is the system - if the whole web app is one big complex component that cannot be easily divided by standalone features/sections, then phasing out the project might not be possible.
● Estimated development hours - the more complex the app, the longer the time frame. However, we can sometimes accelerate project completion by adding multiple developers to work simultaneously.
● The timeframe of the web app can depend on the client too. Are they ready to import data - e.g., if a web app includes big listings of something, time might be needed for data import and data QA, and that is a time-consuming process.
● Can the client stay focused on one exact initial goal and not add features and not request changes along the way that sometimes even doubles the timeline of the project.
How much effort in terms of time goes into developing the front end and back end of a web app?
This depends on the scope of work. We estimate based on the below points:
● Base architecture setup
● Backend development of core instances
● Backend effort to create page/screens routing and data output
● Backend effort for deploys and launch and server setup
● Front-end effort for desktop
● Front-end effort for mobile / responsiveness
● Front-end effort for compliance (ADA for example) and performance/speed optimization
● QA, Etc.
We get these numbers from our developers involved in the project, and the leadership verifies it before sending our estimate to the client.
What are the key parameters to be considered before selecting the right platform for a web application?
One of the key parameters we look at before selecting the right platform is project size. Larger projects like social networks and marketplaces are more complex, so they need more scalability, speed, and serviceability.

Time to market, scalability, and security are important too. If we need to launch a project as soon as possible, we might consider using an MVP—a minimum viable product. If we need to plan for rapid growth, we have to account for a platform’s ability to scale. Some apps, like a medical app, require high security, so that is another key parameter to take note of.
Which platform and technologies do you prefer to use in development of your web apps?
Backend:
● Laravel / PHP
● Node.JS
Front-end:
● HTML5 / CSS3 / JavaScript (native JavaScript, Vue.JS, jQuery, other JS frameworks)
Do you offer website design templates or customised website design, and do you have a responsive website design?
We offer customized website design that can include illustrations, custom graphics, and animations. We create experiences. All of our designs are responsive to the latest browsers and devices. That is a must.
Which Content Management System do you prefer to use (Wordpress, Joomla, Drupal etc)?
We prefer WordPress CMS out of these three options.
Do you provide website maintenance services?
Yes, we do. We provide a warranty period for all of our projects, and afterward, we set up a month-to-month maintenance agreement to make sure that everything is up to date.
What are the key factors that you consider before deciding the cost of a web application?
We consider user stories, amount of data, integrations, front-end complexity, QA length, server architecture complexity, etc.
What kind of payment structure do you follow to bill your clients? Is it Pay per Feature, Fixed Cost, Pay per Milestone (could be in phases, months, versions etc.)
WFN scopes out a project and breaks down every feature and locks in a project budget. Then, we evenly allocate that project budget. After the first scope is completed, we do create a backlog with additional features and set up a monthly retainer to complete any new and existing ideas. That said, we estimate by feature and charge per phase.
Do you take in projects which meet your basic budget requirement? If yes, what is the minimum requirement? If no, on what minimum budget you have worked for?
Our minimum projects start at $10K for web design and development, for e-commerce and custom applications, our starting price is $20K.
What is the price range (min and max) of the projects that you catered to in 2018?
The price range of the projects that we have catered in 2018 ranged from $10K to $300K.
