WordPress 4.1 was released on December 18, 2014.

It’s a minor upgrade¬†but includes a few gems if you use WordPress as often as I do.

Now you can completely focus on what matters most at the moment: content.

I have been working with Shawn since the beginning. He has provided me with a great logo, ads, stationery and website. He works very quickly, has reasonable prices and provides exceptional customer service. I would recommend Graticle Design to anyone looking to improve the look of their company.

What can I say, working with Graticle and Shawn was an absolute pleasure. Shawn is very detail oriented, over communicates and presents all the information you need to know in a very easy to understand and view format. The way he operates is first class. We got better service and a better final product than we could have expected. Thank you Shawn!
