Are you looking for a bespoke WordPress website designer? If you are fed up with website builders and off-the-shelf themes, CEB Creative can help. I am a UK-based, freelance WordPress developer.
My sites are designed and built just for you — no off-the-shelf themes or frameworks here only bespoke website design. My approach is simple; find out what the purpose of your website is and create something unique for you and your business.
I have a precise planning, design and build process that will ensure you get the site you are looking for, which does everything you need it to do – I specialise in website design and website development, so can help you with everything WordPress!
Whether you are looking to target new customers or offer new services to an existing customer, I will ensure your site is built to the highest industry standards. I take a data-driven approach to website design, ensuring that the site structure reflects your users journey through your site.
All my sites include basic SEO research and planning as standard. I will ensure that you have the tools available to facilitate important on-page SEO.
The site will work seamlessly across a variety of modern browsers and, of course, it will be fully responsive, displaying your content clearly on popular mobile and tablet devices.
In my opinion, there is one key difference between the customisation of an existing WordPress theme and the creation of a bespoke WordPress theme design – one can be changed by you, but the other is made for you.
A bespoke WordPress website designer like me will work with you to create a design that focuses on your visitor’s experience and is sympathetic to your brand. I will build you a custom WordPress theme which will only contain the functionality your site requires.
For example, if you’re a small business which has been using WordPress for a few months. You started with a free theme, but you may have quickly outgrown it, and you now need to update your website with a more professional look. This is no problem and is the preferred route for most developers. Having a site structure and content in place ready to work with is much easier than starting from scratch. Once your custom WordPress website design is prepared and coded, we can switch over from your free theme to the new bespoke version.
Key points to think about when choosing a bespoke theme:
Freelancers often make the best website designers for small business as our overheads are a lot less than larger website agencies. This is then reflected in our prices for bespoke WordPress websites. While I don’t offer cheap website design for small business, my website packages provide excellent value for money.
You will not only receive a bespoke WordPress website but also expert advice with regards to best practice website design, website development and search engine optimisation.
All of my website projects follow a detailed process, in which there are different stages.
To ensure that the site is completed to the highest standard, it is essential to properly research and plan the site structure, focus keywords and content.
This is where we first make contact, and you tell me precisely what you are looking for. The cost of my websites is based on the number of pages and functionality required.
At this stage, I will be conducting keyword research on your existing site (if you have one) and your competitor’s websites.
The structure of the website is key to positive user experience and SEO, so this stage is crucial.
Once the research stage is complete, we can start the creative process. This begins with mood boards, which is a selection of found website imagery. Your feedback allows me to get an idea of your likes, dislikes and creative preferences.
Using your mood board feedback, I will get to work on the wireframes which are used to establish the hierarchy of information and the position of elements on the page.
Content is key to a successful website. I will need you to provide me with all the text and images for your website. If you require help with image selection and content writing this is something I can advise you on. Search engines like pages with at least 350-500 words, so use that as a starting point.
Once you have signed off the design, I start building the WordPress theme templates using HTML, PHP and CSS. I only use industry standard code, including HTML5 to ensure your site is made to the highest standards. This is the most exciting part of the project seeing your designs come to life!
When all the templates have been built, and the content has been added, you can get a first look at your new website. At this stage, small content amends can be made as well as minor style tweaks such as colours, font-sizes, spacing etc.
After I’ve worked through your snags and you have signed the site off it’s time to address the responsive code and do some cross-browser testing. I then run through 20+ checks before launching your new website.
Once live, it’s time to get you using the WordPress CMS (Content Management System) so you can amend your site and keep it updated. All website quotes include 1 hour of Skype training. I will show you the basics of WordPress and how to use your site. You can also enjoy peace of mind with a FREE two week technical support period starting from launch.
I helped High Elms Tree Surgery Ltd rebuild their existing static website. They need a modern and easy-to-update platform for their site so they could target new sectors.
I created a fully bespoke WordPress website using their existing content. This what High Elms owner Alex Morris had this to say about working with CEB Creative:
“Charlotte has been very patient, helpful and been a pleasure to work with. We highly recommend. A breath of fresh air after using several other companies that left us feeling ripped off and underwhelmed.”
Whether your current site is an old static HTML, Flash relic or a website builder that you made yourself, moving to WordPress (the most popular CMS on the planet) can completely transform its potential and make it work harder.
Switching to WordPress couldn’t be easier as there are loads of helpful plugins that allow you to migrate content from one platform to another. Even converting an HTML website to WordPress is easy, it merely requires manually copying over the content.
You can migrate to WordPress from most other popular CMS systems such as Magento and Joomla.
Even if you are new to WordPress, you have probably heard of it before. WordPress is a great CMS system for any website, big or small. It allows you to control your content quickly and keep your website updated. This reduces the cost of ongoing development and maintenance charges.
WordPress powers 30% of the internet.
I choose this popular WordPress content management system (CMS) to create all my websites. WordPress is incredibly popular for several reasons. It’s super easy to use and search engines love it.
The WordPress system offers many features and benefits:
And regarding on-going website management:
WordPress is a global community with thousands of popular add-ons to enhance its basic functionality. Not convinced? Read more reasons to love WordPress on my blog.
Bespoke WordPress websites only incorporate the functional requirements necessary for the site to fulfil its primary purpose. This ensures the site remains lightweight and straightforward to use. Functionality can be added through the use of code or plugins.
The WordPress plugin directory has around 50 thousand plugins available. I only use highly rated, or premium plugins in my bespoke website builds. This ensures the site’s longevity and security.
