Welcome to the forums, do you plan on doing it yourself or hiring a professional for it?

 

I can see that your page is in Slovenian, I have a few friends from there and can recommend you a good developer/designer if you are willing to pay for a professional website.

 

 

if not, you've got a lot of learning ahead of you and all I can do is wish you luck on your journey

What Nixfox said wasn't a commercial plug, he's trying to help, but it's not as easy as that, lets start from the basics:

 

  • Do you have any HTML knowledge?
  • Do you have any CSS knowledge?
  • Have you ever used bootstrap?

So without sounding rude, what advice are you after so we can help?

 

I see you wanted advice on the design, have you considered paying a designer to design a PDF for you, and you then code it if you're more competent in coding than you are design?

A template wouldn't be classed as "doing it yourself" but if thats the avenue you'd like to go down, then you could perhaps purchase a template from somewhere like Themeforest.

 

They start at as little as 5$, but I'd recommend you either designing and coding your own website, or having someone design it, and you code it if you're competent.

 

One of the other forum members wrote an article on why you shouldn't use a template which can be found here.

 

I hope this helps.

parisparis, I think your website could look a lot more fresh and cleaner if you was to have a whole new design.

 

I would recommend you either attempt re-designing this yourself, getting ideas from some of your competitors, and even websites that aren't relevant to your category.

 

Or, you could pay someone to design it in PSD form on a white label basis, and you code it from a PSD.

 

Or, you could pay someone to design and code it.

Not to sound rude, but also make sure you are not overestimating your abilities and underestimating the task, common problem I see with the "I'll do it myself" crowd.

 

 

And I have an odd suspicion this might be the case here.

 

 

p.s do not confuse my offer to recommend you a good developer/designer from your area as a commercial plug for myself, I generally do not try to "score" a paycheck on the forums nor do I think you could afford my services, but again if you do decide that the task is beyond your skillset I know a few good developers from your area, that will charge according to the Slovenian standards which I can assure you are much lower than German or UK standards.

@parisparis

 

I think you need to calm the down, at no point was Nixfox trying to "Score a paycheck" but was merely trying to help out using the information gathered from your opening post, which at no point said anything about you wanting to do it yourself.

 

Thre was also not much of a question involved any way.

Ok I took me awhile to understand what did you need help with, web design template. You can go with Bootstrap of course, but there are actually a lots more with other platforms. Check out this article then.

I suggest you to use WordPress CMS to build your website which is easy to access & manage.
