I design and build complete WordPress websites from the ground up. Advanced functionality including custom-built Gutenberg blocks, ecommerce, onsite donations, estate agent listings and more.
I can build a WordPress theme from your XD, Figma or Photoshop visuals. I have a background in graphic design which allows me to build websites that recreate your design as faithfully as possible.
All websites are tested prior to launch on current popular browsers. I also test on a Mac emulator and mobile devices. On completion I provide a video tutorial demonstrating how to add and edit content.
I’ve been involved in some excellent projects during the last couple of years. Two design/builds for estate agents, an animal rescue centre, a community health worker charity, a premier bathroom brassware company, a product design company, and many more.
The majority of my work is on behalf of agencies, so I don’t display it on my website. Please get in touch for URLs of recent projects. Some of my direct-to-client projects are shown below.
I use as few plugins as possible on my builds. I typically only use plugins for advanced functionality such as ecommerce, onsite donations, contact forms, etc.
This keeps my websites lean, efficient and fast. It also means my websites are more future proof – if plugins become discontinued or outdated, it can be time-consuming and costly to update them. I often use the following plugins in my builds:
I use ACF Pro for custom meta boxes. I also use it to build custom Gutenberg blocks. This allows content editors to create great looking landing pages in minutes.
The industry standard for ecommerce websites – I wouldn’t consider using anything else. I have a number of scripts to enhance and extend functionality.
I mainly use Contact Form 7 for enquiry forms. If the client has a paid licence for an alternative, I’m flexible. I’ve used Gravity Forms, Forminator, WP Forms and Super Forms for various clients.
I use GiveWP for onsite donations. It has excellent support and is easy for clients to use. Setting up multiple fundraising campaigns is quick and intuitive.
I use All-in-One for back-ups and migration. I have a pro licence which allows the upload of unlimited sized databases. I’ve moved quite a few hefty sites without any problems.
I typically install Yoast SEO so clients can add meta descriptions, page titles, etc. I’ve also used other plugins such as Rank Math if the client has a preference.
I’ve built a couple of websites for estate agents using the PropertyHive plugin. It has a wealth of features and add-ons that provide all of the typical functionality required.
Ideal for importing and exporting large amounts of content from CSV files. It’s particularly useful for importing lots of WooCommerce products and their associated data.
