Started using WP Design for a WordPress design we needed for our corporate website. Not only did they get the work done and completed ahead of schedule, they were professional and collaborative at the same time. Barry and Thomas specifically have been very helpful and great to work with. In addition to the web design, we needed hosting services at short notice. They were able to get us set up, get the website transferred and ready to go in less than a day. Great to work with! Looking forward to a long business relationship with WP Design. Megan V.

WordPress Development Workflow

WordPress development projects are run by our certified Agile project manager and websites are developed by an inhouse WordPress developer. The website design is created by WP Design or the PSD designs can be supplied by a client for WordPress development only projects.


WordPress Development Planning

Our project manager works with our WordPress developer to create a project plan to enable the WordPress website to be built in an efficient manner.


Design to CSS & Assets

Design files from Adobe XD or Photoshop are converted to CSS and assets including images are resized before passing to our WordPress developer.


WordPress Development

Secure development and staging environments are setup before an unstyled WordPress theme with required WordPress plugins are installed and WordPress development commences.


Content Population

The WordPress website is populated with content including text and resized images, video content and illustrations before proofing by our project manager.


Client Review

The WordPress website is uploaded to a staging server for client review and feedback where final amendments to the content can be made by the client.


Website Testing

Thorough testing for cross browser compatibility, performance, technical SEO and security are performed and adjusted where required.


Website Launch

After client approval, the website will be deployed onto a production server and final testing will be conducted before the WordPress website is put live.

WordPress Technical SEO

Optimising your website for search engines and digital marketing integrations are key factors in the WordPress development stages.

Barry ensures the correct implementation of meta title, meta descriptions, image ALT and title tags, structured data, optimised URL's and image file names and many other technical factors to enhance your website's SEO.

He installs Google tag manager which can then be setup to connect with Google analytics, Facebook, Google ads and tracks events on your website for reporting on pay-per-click, SEO and social media campaigns.

Digital Marketing London

WordPress Speed Optimisation

As a website becomes larger with more pages, text, images and code, the website slows down due to the increased number of files and file size that needs to be downloaded to the website visitor's browser.

Slower websites are held back in the back in the search engine rankings which reduces visitor numbers and effects the user experience which results in fewer sales leads and product sales from the website.

Barry's speed optimisation service focuses on clean and combined files, optimised WordPress themes, image file size reduction and faster delivery, secure hosting with optimised caching along with many other tweaks to get the most out of your website.

WordPress Hosting & Security

Security is of utmost importance to our clients so Barry ensures WordPress installations are secured on multiple levels. He uses enterprise-level hosting from WP Engine which has many security features inbuilt and in addition to this, he installs several plugins to enhance security further.

Spam from comments and contact forms are filtered out, quarantined and automatically deleted using Akismet, a leading anti-spam WordPress plugins.
