Phil and I connected via Twitter when he asked for a recommendation for a new theme for his existing website. We quickly struck up a dialogue and started working on his redesign for www.philsimon.com almost straight away. Phil has excellent technical skills himself, so my role on the project was to provide support and to write the CSS code to really help Phil realise his vision for his site. Working together we managed to redesign and launch the site within a few days while meeting Phil’s exacting standards for the vision of his site.

I was in need of a new theme and look for my site. My old one had grown a bit dated and slow. I initially connected with Babs via Twitter. We quickly set up a Skype to discuss the further details and I was immediately impressed with Babs’ professionalism and level of knowledge. Most important, Babs let me play with the new theme in her staging area for as long as I wanted. This let me touch and feel the theme before deciding to pull the trigger. What’s more, I was able to “build” much of my site and then export pages and layouts. This was essential.

This project was collaborative in nature. I am no newbie to  WordPress. As such, I was not looking for a traditional WordPress developer. Instead I was in search of someone who could make very specific design tweaks. Babs responded to all my queries quickly and efficiently, making changes to the code as needed. She promptly got back to me with theme issues and managed support tickets.

Overall Babs was honourable, honest, and very budget-conscious. She displayed a high level of knowledge and I recommend Babs sans reservation. I love my new site and have already seen an increase in traffic due to the its faster speed.
