The cost of design can be quite a bit, especially when you’re dealing with web apps.
And it can also be quite costly.
But a new study published by the National Institutes of Health (NIH) has found that there are ways to reduce the cost of web design without breaking the bank.
The study, titled Designing for Responsiveness, was conducted by a group of researchers at the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) and published in the Journal of Computer-Aided Design.
In it, they looked at the costs of different types of web apps and found that the more responsive a website is to mobile devices, the lower the price tag will be.
But when the website is designed to be used by a desktop browser, the cost can skyrocket.
For example, a website designed to look like a blog post from the site’s designer might cost $50,000 to $90,000.
For a mobile app, that number would be close to $150,000 per year.
“The real cost is going to be in designing and managing these apps for a wide range of devices,” said lead author Jennifer Henshaw, a PhD candidate at the NIST’s Department of Computer Science.
“You can’t just have an app that looks like a simple blog post and it costs $10,000 or $20,000.”
Hensshaw and her colleagues analyzed the cost-per-second of the websites that were created for a variety of devices, from desktop computers to smartphones, and then calculated the total cost of designing for a different screen size.
They then looked at how many people in the study were on a budget.
“We found that people who were designing for phones and tablets and mobile devices had the lowest cost,” Hensho said.
“If you look at the cost per user per month, it’s about $5,000 for a user with a tablet.”
The researchers also looked at where people had a budget and the average cost of their websites.
The average cost per person was about $15,000, and those who were on fixed budgets had the highest cost.
The researchers then looked specifically at how much of each device the user had access to.
For devices that were connected to a network, the average was about 10 percent.
“When you have multiple devices, you have to have different pricing models,” Heningham said.
So, in order to lower the cost, you need to look at how the sites are designed.
“So we created a price comparison tool to find out where people are on a cost-price basis,” Hinshaw said.
The site is designed for desktop and mobile platforms, with an average cost for the mobile app of $5.65 per month.
For the website, it was $6.70 per month and for the desktop app, $11.40 per month for an average of $11,000 a month.
The cost per month is about half of what the average website would cost for a desktop website, Hensh said.
And with that price, people who don’t have the budget to spend on design will be able to pay less.
“In order to get the price down, people are going to need to get involved,” Hennhaws said.
Hensaws said the site is now available for use on Android, iOS, and Windows devices.
For now, Hennys website is a collection of photos of a variety, including a simple wedding invitation, an art installation, and a school project.
The website was built using OpenType and Open Design, and has been tested on Google’s Android mobile app.
The project was done to celebrate the 10th anniversary of the National Academy of Sciences (NAS), and Hensha said the website will be available to everyone soon.
