WordPress Theme Designer

Our passion for design comes out very strongly in our WordPress themes. Orange Snowman has always sought to bring forth unique, innovative and revolutionary WordPress themes that are not just visually impressive but also extremely purposeful. Our designs cater to the diverse requirements of our services focus on themes that look professional, showcase credibility and can act as growth drivers for the client’s business.

WordPress Theme Design

WordPress is similar to your skeleton that it gives your website structure. A WordPress site holds and organizes all of your content in an easy to find and edit space. A WordPress theme is similar to your clothes. You get to pick and choose different themes to change how your website looks. These come in different colors and have different design elements that can be customized to give your website a unique, individualized look. You should not change your website’s theme as often as you change clothes; however, updating your theme every 2 to 3 years will keep your website from appearing outdated. Creating or installing a new WordPress theme will instantly update your website without needing to reorganize your entire website.

We believe that WordPress is great for most of our clients for the following reasons:

* WordPress is open source which means that it is free and offers a large pool of talented people who maintain the software’s codes.

* It is so simple to use that even those with limited computer experience can use it. Once our clients watch our training videos, they will understand how easy it is to use and edit their website content. This gives our customers an edge over those who do not understand the full functionality of WordPress.

* WordPress is flexible. Flexibility is considered one of the strongest advantages of WordPress. We have been unable to locate a single website that did not work with WordPress. There are thousands of ways you can expand the features of WordPress. This means that we are able to handle anything our clients have asked of us.

* WordPress can create thousands of different designs, which means each website will be as unique as you are. If you can imagine it, we can do it using WordPress.

Although there are many other benefits, these are the top benefits that our clients get from a WP website. If you would like more information on how WordPress can help your business, give us a call today. We would be happy to discuss how we can help you create an amazing website.

WordPress is the website publishing standard

We will begin creating a custom theme by taking a look at your current website as well as any printed material you are currently using. This will help us better understand your needs. After this, we will ask you to fill out a survey to help us determine what you are looking for in a new design, including what you would like your website to achieve. We will create two or more homepage designs to choose from and will offer you two rounds of edits for your chosen design to ensure you are happy with the final results. If you want to have a few of your other key pages redesigned, we will help you identify your key pages and proved a unique design for each page. Again, you will receive two rounds of edits where you can request any changes that you feel are necessary. Once these designs have been finalized, we will create a unique and custom theme for your website.

What is a WordPress plugin?

Plugins are resources or tools that can be used for getting a certain job done. None of us are born holding a smartphone in our hand. However, we have discovered that having one can make us more productive. The same thing is true with WordPress and plugins. You can easily install plugins to provide WordPress with some added and special functionality that you don’t get with it directly from the box. For instance, although WordPress is designed to be SEO friendly, it does not come with specialized SEO features that enable you to set descriptions and keywords up for every page. However, you can install an SEO plugin that will add this functionality. A plugin that allows you to add a slider to your website’s homepage is another example. This functionality doesn’t come with WordPress right from the box, so this ability is added by the plugin. Plugins are very useful tools that make it possible for you to customize your website to do whatever it is you want it to. No more and no less. If every imaginable function came with WordPress out of the box, the code would be so heavy and bloated that your website would run very slowly. Using plugins helps to ensure that you only get what you need.

Just like you can put down your smartphone when you don’t need it, you can also uninstall a plugin if it isn’t useful anymore. You can have an unlimited number of plugins on a WordPress site, however, we recommend that you have a maximum of 20. That is because we have found that a website’s speed starts to significantly decrease whenever you use more than 20 plugins, and many times some of those plugins aren’t really being used and can simply be uninstalled rather easily. If you think your website is running too slowly, it may be due to some of the plugins you are using. We will be very happy to check out the plugins you are using to determine which ones might be negatively affecting the speed of your website and recommend how to fix this problem.

Purchased vs. Custom Theme?

Some businesses have an unlimited budget; however, most people do have a limited budget. Purchased themes allow you to save money without sacrificing on style. You can compare shopping for themes for shopping for clothing. For example, you can save money on your clothing by purchasing inexpensive clothing; however, it will not last as long or look as good as expensive clothing. Themes are the same way.

Custom themes are like tailored clothing that fits you perfectly. Custom themes are created to provide your website with a unique, one of a kind look, specially designed for your business.

There are many free WordPress themes; however, we do recommend purchasing one from a developer who has a high rating to ensure you receive a quality product. These themes allow you to get a long-lasting theme that looks amazing and makes your website superior. However, if you want a custom look and are willing to pay for it, then you should definitely spend the money. Passion8 and Peachtree Catering are awesome examples of a couple of custom themes that we have created in the past.

No matter which type of theme you decide to use, we will help you with every decision you must make. We will explain how each decision may affect your bottom line and your business. We can begin with a purchased them and then customize it so it looks unique or we can create a custom theme for your business. The flexibility of WordPress and the numerous options are just a couple of reasons why we love WordPress.

How Do I Purchase and Get a Theme Customized?

If you decide to save money and purchase a theme, we will talk to you to determine if the theme will work for your brand and content. Here is how we can help you choose the best WordPress theme for your website:

* We look at your current website and evaluate it. We also ask to see any printed material that you use to help us better understand your business, your website content and your brand.

* We ask you to fill out a questionnaire which will help us determine what you are looking for on your new website and the look you want.

* We offer you 3 to 5 different premium themes and ask you to evaluate each one and tell us what you like and what you don’t like. Then, we will help you determine the best theme to purchase.

* We will then purchase your chosen theme and install it on a test server.

The next steps depend on whether you want to spend extra money to have one of our designers make customized changes to your theme or whether you would rather save money and stick to your chosen theme.

How is a WP custom theme Created?

We will begin creating a custom theme by taking a look at your current website as well as any printed material you are currently using. This will help us better understand your needs.

After this, we will ask you to fill out a survey to help us determine what you are looking for in a new design, including what you would like your website to achieve. We will create two or more home page designs to choose from and will offer you two rounds of edits for your chosen design to ensure you are happy with the final results.

If you want to have a few of your other key pages redesigned, we will help you identify your key pages and proved a unique design for each page. Again, you will receive two rounds of edits where you can request any changes that you feel are necessary.

Once these designs have been finalized, we will create a unique and custom theme for your website. During this phase, you will get an opportunity for two more design changes. Once everything is agreed upon, your content will be inserted in the new theme and you will be given a final chance to make any changes before your site goes live.

Do you need a Designer to Create a Custom Theme?

* The designer will create at least two different home page designs for you to choose from. Then there will be two rounds of edits to help ensure the final design is exactly what you are looking for.

* If you would like your website further personalized, we can design additional pages at an extra cost. We will identify your key pages and provide a separate design for each page. Then, we will do two rounds of editing to ensure that the finalized design on these pages is to your liking.

* Once the designs have been finalized, we will take these designs and begin making changes to the theme to create your ideal website. Once these changes are made on your website, you and the designer will have two more edits to make any changes.

* After the content is inserted into your website, you will have one final chance to make sure everything looks great. If there are any issues, ask for those final changes now.

* Finally, your website is ready to go live.

If on the other hand, you decide to save money and not use one of our designers, the following steps will take place.

* We will make any font and color changes to ensure they reflect your branding. We will upload your logo and make any changes that we feel are necessary.

* We will give then give you the opportunity to review your site and request any changes.

*Once your content is inserted into the new theme, you will be given a final chance to make any changes once you have looked over the site.

* Finally, your site will go live.
