Web design/development View Web Design Work »

We design bespoke themes for WordPress-based websites. Our themes are built from the ground up to fit your needs after an in-depth consultation process.

 

WordPress development. We specialize in projects for the extremely popular WordPress framework. Its active development community, great security and huge amount of flexibility make it the perfect solution for almost any type of web project. We build themes from scratch for every client, no cookie-cutter frameworks or one-size-fits-all themes here. Every project is designed to fit our client’s respective needs.

  • Why WordPress? (click to read more)
    Why not Joomla or Magento or XYZ content management system? We use WordPress exclusively for a number of reasons. First, it has one of, if not the, biggest ecosystems out there. There is more support for WordPress than almost any other platform. Second, it’s secure and has a long track record of updates and enhancements. Hundreds of people work every day to make it better and better. Third, it’s free. Using this framework lets us concentrate on making you the best product possible at no additional cost to you. Fourth, it’s flexible. We can do anything with WordPress, and I do mean anything. It’s scalable and easily modified at every level, meaning if you want something done, we can do it and you still get to have the outstanding usability WordPress is famous for.
  • Why a custom theme, why not a pre-made theme? (click to read more)

    Why should I get a theme custom made instead of buying one from a marketplace? While pre-made (‘out of the box”) themes have their advantages, they come with some hidden pitfalls and there are some very good reasons we advise not using them if you’re serious about your online presence. With pre-made themes, you get what you pay for. As much as it’s a cliche, it’s often true.

    1. Since pre-made themes are much more popular, they tend to be an easy target for hackers. If they find a vulnerability in one theme, then they’ve found their way into hundreds, if not thousands of sites. Our themes are secure, and unique. No one is hunting them down as potential targets, and we’ve never been hacked, not even once.
    2. Customization is harder on pre-made themes. They tend to be designed to look a certain way, and work and certain way, and when you want to step outside of that functionality you end up re-making a lot of the theme, if the changes are even possible. When you use a custom theme, we make it do exactly what you want, from the beginning. No shoehorning capabilities into some uncooperative theme you bought from somewhere.
    3. Updates and support. While there are good developers making pre-made themes, you have no idea if you got one or not. Maybe they ripped off someone else’s work, maybe they will never answer e-mails, maybe they opened a security hole they can’t — or won’t — fix. You have no idea who is on the other end of that $39 theme you just bought, and often you’re on your own. When we build your theme, you can rely on us for as long as you use the theme. If anything goes wrong that you need help with, we’ll be there to help, for free, forever.

Responsive design. All of our projects are fully mobile responsive. Designed from top to bottom for the mobile environment, our designs look just as good on a phone as they do on a big screen.

Loaded with features. All of our designs come with a wide array of custom features. A toolbar button loaded with custom shortcodes, control panel pages, and custom image sliders are just a few of the things our themes come with right out of the box. Beyond that, if there is something you want your site to do, we can make it happen.

Built for you by people who know. We’re bloggers, and we make our living on the internet. We know what you need from a website. We’ll build your entire project, from scratch, using our own code. If there is a feature you want, we can provide it. We’re professional developers who are highly proficient in PHP, jQuery, CSS3, and HTML5 and we can make your website do anything you want.

Expertise. Back-end issues? Whether you’re working with cPanel or something custom, we’ve probably been there. We can move sites from a local server to a live server, from one host to another, change domain names, update themes, troubleshoot errors, clear spam and malware infestations, optimize databases and pretty much anything else you can think of the requires more than your average level of technical know-how.

Free support. Forever. As long as you’re using our theme, we’ll provide support. If you have a problem, need help or have questions, we’ll be here to assist you and make sure that, as long as you’re using something we made, you’ll never be left out in the cold.
