Professional, experienced WordPress web designer and developer.
If you’re looking for an experienced and knowledgeable WordPress web designer and developer for your website project, you’ve come to the right place.
I’ve been developing websites using WordPress since 2010, and I find there’s always something new to learn.
The types of website I’ve developed over the years using WordPress has been quite the variety.
- Real-estate websites.
- Personal branded websites.
- Educational websites.
- Brochure websites.
- Small business websites.
- Ecommerce websites and many more.
Using complex code with visual design
I am able to competently combine my knowledge of complex coding with front-end visual design.
And, as a digital marketer of over 10 years, I know just how important it is for good design to meet the marketing objectives of my clients and their business.
So why choose WordPress?
When it comes to building a stunning and fully functional website for your business, WordPress is the only platform I use and recommend.
You’ve no doubt seen a host of online and TV commercials promoting website building tools such as Wix and Moonfruit.
I’ve used some of those tools myself in the past for my own business. In fact the first ever website I built was with Moonfruit.
Those tools offer everything you could possibly need for a great website at the fraction of the price, so why choose WordPress or even consider hiring a web designer?
Well, the one and foremost reason why WordPress is so popular, and powers over 26% of all website’s on the internet (as of 2016), is because of it’s flexibility.
WordPress is an open source platform, meaning you can extend and further develop on it.
And just in case you’re wondering, no you don’t need to be a coder or developer to make the most of WordPress.
Today there are some truly great ready-made themes, simple to use drag-and-drop visual content builder tools, and various other tools you can use to customise your WordPress website yourself.
Millions of businesses choose WordPress for building their online presence every single day.
With WordPress you can create a very specific type of website, for absolutely any function, use or type of business in any sector.
Plugins are what makes WordPress so flexible.
Currently there’s over 47,000 plugins available from the WordPress repository, so building a powerful, fully functional and very specific website with WordPress is more than possible.
Plugins are just the start of it. There’s also thousands of free and premium quality themes and skins that work with WordPress. So again, creating a unique website that looks just right for you and your business is what makes WordPress truly unique.
Custom WordPress Website Design
As I said you don’t need to be a coder or developer to make the most of WordPress, that being said, WordPress for a complete beginner can be a steep learning experience.
Even if you do have some knowledge and experience with WordPress, when all you want to do is focus your time and energy on building your business, serving your clients and everything else, website design and development can take up a lot of your time.
Sure you can save yourself some money in the process, but what about your sanity?
OK I’m just kidding about your sanity. But seriously, taking on a WordPress website design, rebuild or rebranding project comes with it’s challenges.
Thankfully though, I’m here to help you.

State of the art technology, website building tools and software
I use state of the art technology, apps and software to develop and design robust WordPress websites.
These tools include:
- Macaw (Wireframe designer)
- Color Picker (CSS colors)
- Quiver (Notes and code snippets portfolio)
- Atom (Hackable text and code editor for Mac)
- Brackets (Open source text and code editor)
- FileZilla 2 (FTP application)
I also use the following framework and theme softwares to create custom WordPress websites:
1. Genesis Theme Framework
Genesis is an industry leading theme framework for WordPress created by StudioPress.
The StudioPress marketplace currently has over 75 professionally designed responsive ready-made WordPress website themes to choose from. I can customise and develop these themes further to meet your specific goals and objectives.
I am also able to build custom child themes that work with the Genesis software for WordPress from complete scratch.
2. Thrive Themes
Thrive Themes is a fast growing digital software company that offers extremely robust, premium quality conversion focused WordPress themes and WordPress marketing tools.
Thrive themes is one of my favourite themes to work with, although some of their themes aren’t as attractive and professional looking as Genesis child themes, and customization can prove a little more challenging than Genesis.
I am able to customise any Thrive theme using front-end visual design and custom CSS code to meet your requirements.
Here’s a screen capture of a home-page landing page template I created with Thrive Themes and Thrive Visual Editor.
