Custom WordPress Websites

At Graticle Design, we create fully custom WordPress websites and have been doing so since 2009.

Not only do we create unique front-facing websites, we also customize the back-end of WordPress to make it easy for you to manage and update.

Focusing on the Buyer & the Bottom Line

A great looking website is just that: something nice to look at.

As much as we like to create great looking websites, we understand that’s not going to keep your door open. Your website needs to generate sales, leads, or both.

The first stage of our discussions focus solely on the purpose of your website and how we can help achieve that goal creatively.

User Friendly & Easy to Use

We pride ourselves in creating websites that are intuitive and easy to use.

When a visitor arrives on your homepage you have under a second to keep them from hitting the back button.

Optimized for Search Engines (SEO)

We build websites with search engines in mind. We take care of the technicalities to make sure that your website hits the ground running when it’s released into the world.

Statistics: Google Analytics & Google Webmaster Tools

“You cannot manage what you do not measure.” – Peter Drucker

This is why we will setup your WordPress website with Google Analytics and Google Webmaster Tools. With these two tools, you’ll be able to monitor how many visitors arrive on your website, where they are coming from, their demographics, your most popular pages, and much more.

Social Media Friendly

We build all of our websites with social media in mind. When someone shares a link to your page or post, that link will be formatted to show an image, an excerpt, and the web address—making it all the more easy for people to share your content.

Security & Reliability

Your WordPress website will be built to stand up to hackers. This is important because if your website is attacked, it can ultimately take your website offline. This is not only a pain, but a liability, since your customers won’t be able to view your website.

Video Training & Tutorials

When we hand you the keys to your website, we want you to be comfortable managing it.

We create video tutorials that show you how to update and manage your brand new WordPress website. You can also share these videos throughout your company for new employee training.

We Take of Everything

From the domain name to hosting, we handle every aspect of the project for you.

You won’t be required to understand the website industry or be a programmer by night.

After all, that’s why you’re hiring us.

Shawn designed my business website and business cards with the vision I wanted and he did an outstanding turning it into exactly what I wanted.

He made himself very available and answered all of my questions I had about content and design, and instructed me with very easy steps to add content and pictures to my site when he was finished.

I would recommend him to anyone!

Shawn is a complete package. He’s creative, fast and prolific. Just as important, he has r-a-n-g-e. I’ve worked with him on a variety of projects, digital and traditional, corporate and retail–he always understands what the assignment demands. Shawn was on my shortlist of designers three hours into our first gig together. Highly recommended.
