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.

What our clients say

Don’t just take our word for it, have a look at what our many happy clients have to say about working with us. Our mission is to make you happy, and we won’t settle for anything less.

Keith and I truly felt blessed to have Twenty Years Hence work on our theme. We couldn't be happier. I know somewhere along the way our preference will change and we'll be sure to contact you again for a facelift. Our friends love the new look!

Marisol @ Traveling Solemates

Working with Tony on updating our business' website was great. He was kind and patient with my questions and was quick and thorough with his responses. He made sure he understood our vision at each step. I have worked with other web designers, and having worked with Tony, I can say with certainty that they are not all made equal. I highly recommend him and would be happy to work with him again in the future.

Colleen @ Family Optical

I couldn't be more pleased with the overall outcome of my logo and site redesign. Tony (and Steph!) was very knowledgeable, professional and efficient throughout the entire process of re-branding and design. He asked a bunch of questions I would never have considered to better understand my business and what I was looking for, and then seemed to know exactly what I wanted before I did. He also put in the time to write a tutorial guide for my new site, which is very concise and immensely helpful. The process was painless (for me!) and affordable. I'd recommend Twenty Years Hence to anyone looking for a new look.

Jessica @ Teach English ESL

The logo's gotten great feedback! I definitely feel the value in investing in your work 🙂 That's a big compliment.

Izy @ Wrong Way Home

I had been meaning to update my theme for a long time, but figured it would be a long, stressful process. After a recommendation from a friend, I contacted Tony and couldn’t have been more wrong. From the start the process was easy and fun, and no matter how many times I changed my mind or deliberated he was incredibly patient. Now I have a theme I love, and Tony still lets me annoy him with any questions or problems I have. Thanks Tony!

Stacey @ One Travels Far

Tony Kuehn is an amazing webmaster, designer, and artist, who gently guided me step-by-step through the processes of creating a virtual platform that completely represented me and my ideas. He asked great questions, listened deeply, and then asked more questions to really understand my vision of all that I wanted to create. The end-result is a professional-looking website that any company would be proud of. I also appreciated Tony's tempo, not going too fast or too slow. He rolled out the website in exactly the stages I needed, and I was blown away with each step of his progress. I look forward to working with him and his wife, on other future projects.

Tonya @ Luminous Words

My project was more than just a business venture for me; it was something I held very sacred and dear to my heart. Tony was not only very professional and approachable, but he completely understood the elements of my site and why they were so precious to me. He communicated well and offered his professional opinion, whilst continuously respecting my feelings and my desires for the project. I'm so happy with the logo and branding that he created for me and I would highly recommend him to anybody. Thank you Tony!
