BEAUTIFUL, HIGH-END WEB SOLUTIONS
How you look online says a lot about your business. I believe in maintaining a long term relationship with my clients and take pride in providing full circle custom WordPress solutions including designing and building your site, to maintaining and supporting it after site launch.
I take the time to learn about your brand and competitors to properly showcase you online.
Custom WordPress web design, web maintenance, social media maintenance, brand marketing, it's all under my umbrella. I genuinely do my best to bring your brand to life online. If it's out of my scope I work with a few local, creative firms regularly in collaboration. Web Design is not only my profession, it's my passion. I hope it reflects in my work.
Having a maintenance plan for your WordPress website protects your website by providing backups, security scans, important critical updates, malware scans, performance updates and much more. It provides insurance for your online investment. You will never lose important web data due to a hack or crash.
Your social media content is always beautifully integrated and cross-posted to keep your website and social media feeds current without having to update each channel manually.
I have devoted the majority of my 20+ year career on developing custom WordPress sites while mastering the popular Divi, Genesis and Avada frameworks. I maintain a curated collection of professional plugins, modules and components to use on your new web venture and I'm always testing the newest releases for my clients.
The Corner Butcher Shop of Beverly, MA project is the result of a complete WordPress redesign. It is a responsive, mobile-first, modular design using Divi framework. Melinda wanted a modern yet vintage vibe to the site, so I incorporated an old-time feel with meat cutouts to the design.
I also took inspiration from their chalkboard to bring the brick & mortar shop “look and feel” to their online shop. Her goal was to recreate the vibrant experience in the shop, so upon visiting the site there is a hero panorama of the store with all the necessary contact info and clickable phone/directions.
Melinda is always on social media for The Corner Butcher Shop, so I designed the site where 75% of the photos on the site are are pulled from her latest posts using Instagram hashtags. If Melinda tags a photo #meats, it populates the photo gallery on the Meats page, and so on throughout the entire site. If you like this style, please let me know! It's a very easy way to keep your site fresh and up-to-date without doing a lot of extra work. Just add a hashtag!
I’m currently working on the RICE Kitchen restaurant chain WordPress redesign. They came to me with a small tile homepage that wasn’t on-brand and didn’t include social media or dynamic content. They received a responsive comprehensive landing page that branches out to individual sub-pages, directions or online ordering where appropriate for their growing and successful business.
I also updated their old dark theme to their new lighter brand. Other new updates include installation and configuration of a few social media elements, a custom Google Map showing store locations, SEO tweaks we’re tracking, and new call-to-action buttons. They also signed up for a Maintenance Plan to keep their WordPress website up-to-date and secure.
New Life Upholstery was one of my first clients and they recently needed to upgrade an old design from HTML to a full robust WordPress website to better maintain security and for their mobile visitors. The old site was designed without a mobile theme well over 10 years ago. The new design stays true to the old site while maintaining their theme and online brand.
I incorporated new features including a custom accordion for the homepage, and SEO software on the back-end to help target their customers and perform well in the search engines. Check out the new design at: newlifeupholstery.com

David Whitney Architect launched today at davidwhitney.com. David had a website that wasn’t mobile-friendly that he wanted to replicate and update as closely to the original he designed as possible. This is a custom Portfolio WordPress web design with three custom designed sticky menus, top ones left-aligned per the client, including dozens of dynamic galleries.Each page is a showcase of David’s work organized by type and optimized for mobile devices. He wanted the menus to stick to the top and bottom of each page and the gallery to resize with the browser. Contact links were simply added to the bottom of each page on the sticky menu.
In addition to web design and maintenance for the OTA Koomar Center in Watertown, I was hired to consult through 6 stages of a logo design from scratch. As the design came to life from feedback, the page is built. On this page you can see the final product and each stage below in reverse order, so please start at the bottom and work your way up.
Sarah Haase at Shanti Bodywork has been a client (and a friend) for many years. Her first web site by me was on the Joomla CMS system and as her business grew, her web needs grew. After two redesigns, we decided to move to the more secure and flexible WordPress system. Her most recent design features her rug as part of the design and has colors and a vibe to match her studio in Beverly, MA. Check out her site at shantibodywork.com.
The Newtowne School in Cambridge, MA needed a WordPress site that had a separate blog for each classroom. The result was a network of 8 WordPress installations interconnected in one hub. This hub included a public portion for all to see, and a private portion for only parents or family members to see. The classrooms could easily blog and each classroom had a distinct, yet maintained a similar look-and-feel throughout the site. Integrated in the site was a calendar feature of events and special dates that the Director updated as needed.
