      The first law of website design is that the owners of a company usually hate their new site within 24 months..

      The original time frame for building and introducing the site was four months. It ended up taking six and would have taken much longer if I hadn’t kept pushing our designers. I’m happy with the work the firm did, but it always takes vigilance to keep outside contractors focused.
