Customizations, Full Website Builds, Theme Development
Integrity and honesty are foundational to our working style. Delivering work that you feel is worth the investment of your time and money is of the utmost importance to us. 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.

Deborah is very thorough, efficient, and highly knowledgeable about website design, and she created a start to launch for my new company website. I am thrilled with its final look and feel. Her communication and suggestion were timely, and we were able to have the launch in three weeks. I would strongly recommend Deborah and will use her for 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.
