I initially completed Natayle’s original branding and WordPress website on Genesis, which was the preferred theme of choice at the time. She recently contacted me for an update to take advantage of newer WordPress options, so it was time for a WordPress theme change. If you love your branding, a theme change is the perfect option to update your website without starting from scratch.

- Extra customizations + integrations
I love working with Christi! This recent website redesign was exactly what I was looking for. I created a mockup, and Christi helped bring everything to life. She was incredibly helpful every step of the way, and I appreciated her timeliness & patience while I changed my mind or wanted to try something different. The end product is beautiful, functional, and just what I wanted.
Here’s Natayle’s previous design, where you can see that the new theme didn’t dramatically change her branding. Instead, it focused on the layout of her homepage and “under the hood” upgrades. Her new homepage now has stronger calls to action and directs traffic better. This shows that you can do a WordPress theme change without changing the colors/logo you love.
Natayle sent these Canva mockups to show her vision for the new site. Then I started with a commercial theme and modified it to closely match her mock ups. This saves time (and money!) over having me create a totally “from scratch” theme, and is a good option if you have some flexibility. I do offer completely custom WordPress themes, if needed though!

Here is my website installation, which closely matches Natayle’s mockup above After building the new website, we went through several rounds of revisions to make it perfect once Natayle saw it all together. This is an important step of each website build because you want to make sure your site lives up to expectations “in real life” and also looks great on mobile devices.
We also added a few impressive extras, like these conversion pop ups that are triggered by call-to-actions on the homepage.
