Here we spent about next time:
1) 30-35 hrs
2) 7-10 hrs
3) 8-10 hrs
Balinor, Benihana do I correcly understand that such work without Flash should be done in 25-30 hrs in your companies?
I don't know how it can be. We have simpler solution with less standard time, but even there it's 20-24 hrs for all (design solution and HTML) and this is without any flash and much simpler in term of design, something like:
Do you use any wizards or templates that adjust for client's needs or design sites from scratch?

I usually just design any significant pages in Photoshop and then export to some format for the client's approval before I start to reproduce the design in HTML.
I can see pro/cons to each. Obviously my clients don't have anything to click on, no interaction. However, I'm not designing with HTML in mind and I find I can be more free flowing and less restricted. Also, since I usually show the client 3 to 5 designs, I don't have to replicate each of them in HTML, just the final, approved design.
also i when it comes to laying stuff out i often get a page of their content and mark it up 'purely' e.g simple <h> and <p> tags in a very structural manner. i like to flick between photoshop and css to start 'decorating' when the structures in place as it allows for fine control, and helps bring any potential problems out as development goes on.
the last design i did like this the client liked but wanted to change the color scheme, so i took a screen grab and then
produced different jpgs of the layout simply by changing the colors in photoshop - it was extremely quick, and ill easily be able to alter the actual graphics when the client picks one color they like.
/but thats just me, everybody works in different ways...
