Hello! I’m Christophe
I’m a creative web developer specializing in WordPress theme development. You’ll find in me a partner who knows WordPress inside-out and can help with all aspects of a WordPress site, from the source code to the look of your website and Search Engine Optimization (SEO) considerations.
I came to WordPress development with a background in SEO, online content creation and, before that, in desktop publishing and writing. I thrive when given creative tasks and, although it is technical, I consider WordPress theme development to be a creative endeavor. I love the coding involved in the development of custom WordPress sites, but I also enjoy working on the visual layer. I approach the creation of websites with a keen eye for design, while always keeping in mind the marketing goals of my clients.
I also make sure that the websites I develop are easy to use for the end user and for the site’s owner, so that you can easily update your site’s content on your own, whenever you need to.
I am based near Boston, Massachusetts, and I appreciate working with local small businesses and entrepreneurs. But I also welcome projects and clients from all over the world. In addition, my native language is French, and I’m always happy to help with websites targeting a French-speaking audience.
How much does a custom WordPress website cost?
The cost of custom WordPress development services can vary widely, depending on the scope and complexity of the project. Rather than providing predefined pricing options, I prefer to discuss your project in detail and assess your exact needs in order to work with you on a price that fits your budget.
Why should I choose WordPress for my website?
WordPress is an enormously popular content management system (CMS), but more than its popularity, its appeal is in its versatility. WordPress can be used for all kinds of websites, whether it is a simple blog, a portfolio, an online magazine, an e-commerce site, or a complex business website. WordPress’s admin dashboard makes the creation of pages, blog posts and any kind of content easy for non-technical users, so you’ll be able to add content on your own. WordPress is also a scalable solution that can grow and evolve with your business in the long run.
Do you create responsive, mobile-friendly websites?
Absolutely. The WordPress themes and websites that I code are fully responsive and tested to make sure they work and look great on all mobile devices, including all types of cell phones and tablets.
Can you develop custom Gutenberg blocks?
Yes. I create custom Gutenberg blocks using ACF Blocks — a feature of Advanced Custom Fields (ACF) Pro. ACF Blocks allows me to develop reusable and dynamic custom blocks that integrate with Advanced Custom Fields, which makes them easy to use by the site’s owner.
Do you use Divi, Elementor, or other page builders?
I usually don’t, because I prefer to work directly in the template files and the source code. This gives me better control of the code that powers your website, and it helps me build websites that are lean and load fast. I also prefer to hand-code all of the site’s style sheets (which affect its look and feel) and to keep design elements separate from the actual content. This allows you to update your site’s content easily and on your own, by simply adding text and images, without having to worry about design considerations.
What can you do for my site’s SEO?
I have a background in SEO, and I always make sure that the websites I build adhere to the best SEO practices. I am also happy to make recommendations to jumpstart your on-page SEO efforts, but I do not provide long-term and off-page SEO services. I’m happy, however, to recommend trusted professionals specializing in SEO.
I’d be happy to answer any other question you may have.
