My WordPress Design Process

Here's the process which I follow when designing brand new WordPress websites or working on re-design projects

01. Discovery Call

This initial meeting is crucial for understanding the client's needs, goals, and the scope of the project. It's an opportunity to gather as much information as possible, which guides the entire project.

02. Project Brief

Based on the discovery call, I create a detailed project brief that outlines the project objectives, target audience, deliverables, timelines, and budget. This document serves as a roadmap of the project.

03. Design Concept

At this stage, I present mockups and prototypes. This is when the visual identity starts to take shape, including the layout, color palette, typography, and user interface elements. Feedback from the client is crucial here to refine the design.

04. WordPress CMS Build

Once the design is approved, I begin the development phase on the chosen Content Management System (CMS). This involves building a custom WordPress theme.

Go Live

After thorough testing and final approvals, the website goes live. This phase may also include training for the client on how to manage their new site, along with any necessary post-launch support.

05. Ongoing Support

Optional ongoing support contract is available once the the project is completed. This starts from 10 hours per month and can include and CMS-related support tasks.

Redesign Before & After

A fresh, modern design not only reflects your brand’s commitment to innovation but also enhances user experience, ensuring your site is accessible, engaging, and aligned with the latest user expectations. Keeping up with design trends helps your site perform better in search engines, adapt to new technologies, and meet the ever-changing standards of web functionality.

Genuine client reviews

Has been a pleasure working with Mike. He did a fantastic job combining high-quality design with strong front end development (which I understand is rare), and has nicely balanced meeting our (detailed and frequent) requests with ideas of his own. Would strongly recommend him to anyone wanting to work with him.

Mike was a pleasure to work with and did an exceptional job on our entire redesign. I’d highly recommend him to anybody who would like a modern and aesthetically pleasing website.

Andrew James

Mike was extremely creative and did a very thorough job of understanding our product and market before building a website that matched our needs and mission. He was very flexible with changes that came up throughout the process and does an awesome job of creating web animations (pulsing nodes, moving components, etc.) that added vibrancy to the website. All in all, very creative, patient, and great execution!

Borna Poursheikhani

Mike is a talented developer and designer that went above and beyond for our recent website project. He’s very easy to work with and always came up with solutions – nothing was too hard for him. I can’t recommend him enough!

Margo Camus

Mike did a great job on our HubSpot site. He worked to a tight schedule, interpreted the design brief we gave him really well and came up with a compelling design. He then delivered the finished product to schedule, working quickly to make any requested amends and add/change functionality. Really impressive work and Mike would certainly be my first choice for any similar work in the future.

It was a pleasure to work with Mike on our music conference website. He went beyond what we needed him to do in order to create a beautiful new website which meets all our needs. We would definitely work with him on future projects.

I have worked with many developers and hands down the best! Quality of work is impeccable, everything went smooth and was easy to communicate with. I have project #2 ready for him to start.

Violeta

Mike delivered exceptionally high-quality work. The design conveys the brand message and there were very few errors in the final platform. Despite several challenges outside their control, Mike was able to deliver within the condensed timeline.
