From Concept to Code
If you can dream it, we can build it!
WordPress is the content management platform behind around one-third of the world’s websites. We have developed hundreds of WordPress websites for clients, ranging from simple single-page “brochure” sites to corporate websites. Most of these website projects incorporate some degree of custom programming or development for functionality which WordPress doesn’t provide “out of the box.” WordPress is highly customizable and we excel at molding it to clients’ needs.

Our talented website and graphic designer Louisa has been designing custom WordPress themes for 10 years. We will work closely with you to identify your audience and design a custom theme targeted toward them. With a talented designer working for you, design options for your WordPress website are nearly limitless.

WordPress is flexible and adaptable for changing needs, and with our experience we can make your WordPress website function in any way you need. We have developed literally hundreds of WordPress sites and have a wealth of experience to draw from. If you can dream it, we can build it!
Simplified Content Management
A WordPress site is easy to administer, even without any technical expertise. It includes an easy and intuitive Admin dashboard where you can manage content, upload files, and much more. If you can type into a Word document, you can manage your website content.
SEO – WordPress Sites Rank Well
Search Engine Optimization is key for ranking highly in web searches in the major search engines. WordPress sites tend to rank well for their keywords, largely because it’s easy to update site content and stay relevant. When you combine WordPress’s great out-of-the-box SEO with our experience in programming search engine friendly websites, and you can rank more highly than your competition.
WordPress Sites Are Mobile Friendly
Responsive website design is key for today’s users, and also for getting good SEO results. WordPress makes that easy, and all of your content and graphics can be displayed beautifully on all website browser screen widths — from mobile phones, to tablets, to desktop monitors.
A Stable, Well-Supported Platform
When you are creating a website, you want to make sure it will be strongly supported far into the future. WordPress has been around since 2003 and has a massive community of developers who work to continually support and improve it. Updates are regularly released, are incredibly simple to apply, and best of all they are free. There are 75 million active WordPress sites – this is a platform you can rely on.
We have developed hundreds of eCommerce websites for clients , ranging from simple single product stores to enterprise-level sales websites. Many of our projects incorporate at least some degree of custom programming for needs which are specific to a client’s business.
We’ve worked with many E-Commerce platforms over the last 20 years, and in the last 8 or so years we’ve become fans of the BigCommerce platform over the others. We have developed around 200 BigCommerce web stores and are impressed with it’s affordability, stability, and feature set. It is generally the ecommerce platform that we recommend to clients. One very cool new development is that BigCommerce can now seamlessly integrate with WordPress websites.
We are a Certified BigCommerce Partner. This means we’ve undertaken all available BigCommerce training and have passed assessments to demonstrate our knowledge of the nuts and bolts of the BigCommerce platform. We use our expertise to customize Bigcommerce to meet our clients’ needs.
For all our fondness of Bigcommerce, we do still work on other eCommerce platforms as well. Woocommerce is one in particular we’ve worked with a lot over the years. If you have an existing online store that you need help with, please contact us and we’ll be happy to discuss!
If you don’t need a full-fledged eCommerce platform, we can still help. We have developed much more simple solutions for clients that only need to sell a few items, or clients who need something like a members-only section of their website for paying customers. Let us know your needs, and we can find a solution. Contact us to discuss your project.

Search Engine Optimization (SEO)
While an impressive website design will make a great first impression and establish credibility, we need to get visitors to your site in the first place.
This is where SEO comes in. Search engines like Google, Bing, and Yahoo “crawl” websites to gather data and determine how relevant your website is to a specific set of search terms. Poorly designed and programmed websites will be nearly invisible to search engines and potential customers will have a hard time finding you through web searches. The cookie-cutter templated website builders (Wix, we’re looking at you) are guilty of this.
We will design and build your website to maximize it’s visibility to search engines, and we’ll work with you to determine which specific search terms to target.
At its core, Lean is a business methodology that emphasizes continual refinement of business processes to promote efficiency. We can apply Lean Methodology to your website as well, in order to create the best and most efficient user experience possible.
Maybe you want to maximize sales through your online store, maybe you have a massive customer database that you need to interact with more efficiently. We can use Lean to identify areas ripe for improvement and to help eliminate pain points.
