WordPress Website Design and Development

It doesn’t matter if you need a website redesign, an update for Google’s “Mobilegeddon”, or if you’re starting from scratch, hiring the right team to design and build your site is crucial for your success and peace of mind.  I have been designing and building sites for 12 years, from small brochure type sites to complicated business shopping sites.  Two years ago I expanded my business and added a technical whiz, Nick Rowley, to the mix, to better serve my clients. We look forward to meeting your needs, however small or large they may be.

I recommend using WordPress for several reasons:

  1. It’s less costly than coding a site “from scratch.”
  2. You can get fantastic looking results.
  3. It’s 100% customizable.
  4. It’s easy for clients to use.
  5. Google loves it.

In the land of FaceBook, Twitter, LinkedIn, Instagram, Pinterest, Google+, YouTube, Snapchat, Tumblr, Vine…  it is more important than ever to have your OWN website that is not subject to changing rules or algorithms that determine what your clients see.

Make sure your website is up to speed.  Click here to get in touch with us to see how easy it will be.

What Clients are Saying:

“The website far exceeds my expectations.  I am delighted.”
—Celeste Iida, President, American Ceramic Society, Southern California Chapter

“As a non-profit, our funds are tight, and we had been struggling for years with an old website that used out-dated software.  It was very difficult to manipulate the website and change any information.  Parts of it were broken and we had to work around it, which resulted in an ineffective web presence.

Your hard work and design ability has given us an aesthetically pleasing and functional website that is easy to navigate.You are a patient teacher who has given us the tools to move forward confident that we can change it to best showcase our classes and gallery events.  Our new website will make a difference in our ability to market the art center and what we have to offer the community.”

—Kristin Naran, Executive Director, Creative Arts Group, Sierra Madre, CA
 “Lyn Adelstein created an effective and beautiful web site for my art work. The design is clean and has a consistent look that is subtly reflected in every part of my site. She is a master of balancing elegant form with effective function to get the site to do what it needs to get done: introduce me and my work to my potential customers, convert a visitor to a purchaser, convince, inform and engage my clients. She has a firm grasp on what make the eye wander and what makes it focus. The new website that Lyn created for me has increased my sales, provided me with commissions and new opportunities for shows and exhibitions.”
—Lynn Hendricks, Ceramic Artist, Glendora, CA
