Customizations, Full Website Builds, Theme Development
We are a team of full stack developers and designers with 20yrs of combined experience working in WordPress. Listening, taking care to understand your ideas and concerns, cost-efficiency, and clear communication are table stakes. CUSTOM THEME DEVELOPMENT We've found that sometimes building a theme from scratch takes less time than tweaking something that already exists. Plus custom themes help websites to be faster, leaner, and more efficient. Building a custom WordPress theme is our first preferred approach when starting a new project. It allows us to create something unique and high-performing. When we build a custom theme, we like to ensure that they are: Clean code and standards-compliant Functionality flexible Design adaptable Fast page speeds An easy to use admin dashboard PAGE BUILDER (ELEMENTOR, GUTENBERG, DIVI, WPBAKERY) Preferred page builder: Elementor or Gutenberg Setting you up to succeed beyond the build is something we are committed to thinking about. This includes recommendations around maintenance, updates, reporting, and ease of future customization - which is where page builders come in. We like to work with Elementor - a page builder that saves time and also sets you up for easier customization and updates in the future post build. It's also compatible with Custom Post Types as well as Advanced Custom Fields, which means we can be more versatile with this kind of build. A WIDE RANGE OF CLIENT EXPERIENCE We are curious by nature and love to learn. This has led us to work with a wide range of clients both locally and internationally. From intricate corporate websites to personal blogs, media sites to eCommerce startups, and national newspapers and NGOs – we’ve gained experience across a range of business verticals.

I was skeptical as I was scammed by Bluehost Design Services and had a very tight deadline to get my website complete and functional. This is my first time with Codeable and I recently had the pleasure of working with Deborah who is an incredible web designer, and I can confidently say that the experience exceeded all of my expectations. From the very first consultation, it was clear that Deborah is passionate about her work and committed to creating a website that perfectly reflected my vision and my business brand. Throughout the entire process, Deborah was incredibly responsive, attentive, and always willing to go above and beyond to ensure that the website was everything I wanted and more. Deborah took the time to understand my business and my goals, which was to showcase my newly formed business in Miami during the first week of March at a national Expo, and she was able to translate my vision and goals into a website that is both visually stunning and highly functional. I was even on a URGENT deadline. Deborah and I hashed our exceptions and Deborah delivered ON-TIME! Deborah's attention to detail was impressive, and she never compromised on quality. She was also very patient with me through every round of edits, and worked tirelessly until I was completely satisfied with the final product. Overall, I am absolutely thrilled with the website. Deborah truly exceeded my expectations in every way, and I would highly recommend her to anyone in need of a talented, professional web designer. Deborah's dedication, creativity, and skills are truly unmatched compared to other services on the innerwebs, and I am grateful to have had the opportunity to work with her and look forward to future projects!

Deborah was a pleasure to talk to, friendly and a real WP expert. She helped me understand how to tackle a big project and how to get rid of a bunch of resource heavy plugins.
