Bespoke WordPress Theme

We have worked with many clients who were given the impression they were getting a truly bespoke WordPress website only to find they’ve been delivered something off-the-shelf with a few style changes.

Being a digital agency that specialises in WordPress web design and WordPress development we knew this award-winning platform would be perfectly suited to create a bespoke theme for our client.

With an intuitive and easy to use interface, WordPress can be used and enjoyed by all. Which was one of the top priorities of the client, he would need the ability to maintain and update his own website after launch.

At Crush Pixels, we build beautiful bespoke WordPress websites that not only look great but are developed using the best practices as well as being optimised for all.

Bootstrap 4 Framework

We have used Bootstrap 4 for the markup and CSS styles across the website – which is the industry standard for responsive and mobile friendly websites.

Using Bootstrap as our framework has allowed us to turn an intricate and truly unique design and layout into a responsive website build that works seamlessly across all devices and viewports, using the simple grid model.

Having packaged Javascript components included is a real plus too, as we were able to quickly and effectively integrate website sliders, modal windows, and tooltips into the website.

Advanced Custom Fields

We have used the Advanced Custom Fields plugin to create a beautifully simple admin interface, which is intuitive and easy to use.

The UI allows the user to update a complex front-end layout quickly and easily, using simple instructions and functions, whilst also having clean minimal markup.

WordPress default custom fields functionality isn’t the most sophisticated, to say the least, this is where Advanced Custom Fields comes in as a powerful time-saving tool to incorporate into your WordPress development workflow. It makes it much easier to create a variety of custom field types, allowing us to quickly & efficiently build complex WordPress themes that still have an incredibly effortless admin interface.

Bespoke WooCommerce Website

Here at Crush Pixels, we offer WooCommerce as an e-commerce platform that allows you to sell anything, beautifully

Built to integrate seamlessly with WordPress, WooCommerce gives you full control and is flexible, scalable and affordable.

Nick wanted a website that offered him all the benefits of an open-source solution but with the functionality of a high-end shopping cart, which is why we agreed WooCommerce would be the perfect choice to sell his amazing prints and canvases.
