Showcase Websites

Although (full disclosure!) I am not a coder, I do advise on best practice for websites, and can help develop theme-based WordPress sites.

The WordPress platform is used for almost 30% of websites, from huge companies (Variety, The New Yorker, The Walt Disney Company, Marks and Spencer) to little ol’ me.

While most big companies will have a custom WordPress site coded from scratch for them, it is also possible to set up a website using a premade theme, giving you a simpler starting point to create something perfect for you. It’s a great way to get a professional website without the costs of a custom site, but figuring out how to make the site look and work just the way you want it to can be tricky if you haven’t used WordPress before. That’s where I come in.

I put together a website for actor Gillian Dean, using the popular WordPress theme Twenty Seventeen. The site uses a video header, so the first thing you see when you land on the home page is some clips of Gillian’s performances on stage and TV. It is designed to be simple and clean, pointing you straight towards Gillian’s photos, videos and CV.

She was so pleased, she also asked me to put together a website for her massage business, Amethyst Palm. A very multi-talented lady!
