Create a bespoke Wordpress blogging theme with additional functionality

  • Wordpress Custom Theme


The client came to me after having issues with her previous paid WordPress theme following WordPress core updates and frustration with limited functionality.


The client was used to working with WordPress and wanted to retain the ability to change typography and theme colours but also wanted additional control over selection of posts to promote on feed pages. They also requested a redesign to freshen the look of the site.


I built a redesigned bespoke theme for the client incorporating extra admin options to allow them to select feature posts for categories as well as incorporating a SASS customizer to provide with the ability to update typography and theme elements without the use of inline styles.


We also worked together to significantly improve the page load speed of the site.


Since Duncan created a custom theme for my website and took over managing some common technical issues I was experiencing, my traffic and search engine rankings have risen significantly. I've also been complimented numerous times on the look and functionality of my new site. I couldn't ask for more professionalism, skill, and ability to carry out a creative brief. Duncan is thoughtful, responsive, patient and always takes time to talk me through things and ask for follow-up feedback. I highly recommend him for any web and web design related projects.
