WordPress Themes

A WordPress theme is a collection of files that make up the user interface or front-end of the website

I develop completely bespoke themes, specifically designed and tailored to clients needs. I believe strongly in the planning phase of website development – this means carefully considering user experience, personas/demographics and user journeys based on business decisions or user data using a process pioneered by Google called Design Sprints.

WordPress has a large theme making eco-system and community. WordPress themes allow developers, designers and businesses buy theme to jump start website development.

Although off-the-shelf themes can be great way to save money and there are many well written themes out there. Sadly too many theme’s are slow. bloated and offer a poor user experience.

Theme development is massively competitive industry and theme developers tend to build general multi-purpose themes to cast the net as wide as possible. However it come’s at cost for website speed, insecure or bad code, similar-looking websites and fundamentally they’ve not been designed with your business and your customers in mind.
