I COULD… BUT DO YOU REALLY WANT ME TO?
I could build you a custom designed website, but it’s going to put a dent in your wallet. Instead, I can customize a pre-made wordpress theme at a fraction of the cost.
When I started web design back in 2004 – design was king. I loved creating custom designed sites for clients and then coding them in html and css. Around 2008 I started creating custom WordPress templates… but now the features and ease of use offered in pre-designed themes is pretty darn amazing.
Yes, yes… a lot of companies promise 100% customization but you’ll pay through the nose for that OR it’ll get outsourced to some foreign country. Shouldn’t your money be spent on other things like SEO and/or copywriters so your site actually works for you? Because, to be honest, no matter how good your website looks, without GREAT content and in-depth search engine optimization, it’s just a waste of your money.
There’s no reason why YOUR theme should look like THEIR theme.
A good WordPress theme allows you to customize the look and feel of your site to your hearts content. Many of them come with their own options panel allowing you to change colors, change typography, upload logos, change backgrounds, create beautiful sliders, and do other cool things with your website without ever writing any code at all.
A perfectly good example of theme customization is the 1 image to the right – www.tobyandkatemccartney.com.
Did you know that it uses the exact same WordPress theme that this site does? Hard to tell, isn’t it? WordPress is super flexible and can be extended by using plugins. Just like themes, there are thousands of free and premium plugins available for you to use. Not only these plugins can add extra functionality to WordPress, there are lots of plugins which can add a whole new platform to your WordPress site

Thank you Hillary
I was having a very difficult time finding a web designer who was honest, helpful and willing to teach me what I needed to know to continue to run my business and update my website.
Hillary of ONNA web design was highly recommended to me by a consultant that I was working with at the time and wiithin a few sessions Hillary had both me and my website functioning more smoothly. The way that she explained everything to me took the confusion away and working with my wordpress site actually became fun. Hillary was always there when we set up our meetings and she always could jump in where I needed her. I would highly recommend Hillary to anyone who wants to become more empowered with their own wordpress website.
Thank you Hillary for being such a great teacher.
Hillary Summerton at ONNA Web Design has been my company’s web designer for over 5 years. Hillary is extremely easy to work with and it’s great to know that I have a web designer who is prompt about responding to my requests as well as completing the work in a timely manner.
As a business owner it is important to me that the people I do business with treat me as well as I treat my own customers. Hillary succeeds in that mission where I find her truly talented, professional, honorable and reasonable as my ongoing web designer.
I’ve been working with Hillary for a few years now. She was recommended by one of my consultants but I was still pretty nervous because I never worked with her before.
Well, she is everything you could possibly want in a web designer! She does beautiful work, on time, and makes sure everything is just the way you like it. She can do as much as you want her to do or give you a little tutorial so you can do some of the work yourself. She makes sure my sites are secure and run flawlessly.
Her work is top quality and her rates are very fair (and she’s pretty cool, too). I will continue to work with her and would highly recommend her.
