Ditch the Development

Custom WordPress Development

Your second client in 2 months is asking why their website looks broken on their iPhone. Cue a 70+ hour workweek and countless headaches to try and make it work. Sorta.

Let my developer brain make your gorgeous designs look (and perform) amazing as a WordPress website because happy clients make a happy you.

Ditch The Development is a 4-week package that allows you to bring your gorgeous web design to life without touching a single line of code

Life after working together

code-punch

Coding issues don't ruin that post-launch excitement for the first time in years

clock-punch

You spend more time on new branding projects or binge-watching Netflix with your husband

lightbulb-punch

You're not limited by the templates available on Squarespace and themes you can tweak on WordPress

Kory Woodard

Development is absolutely not my thing. I love working with Krista because I finally have the freedom to create really beautiful and creative designs that my clients will love and know that it’ll actually be possible because I have an amazing developer to let take control instead of spending hours trying to figure it out myself. Plus, I love that she’s able to handle tech stuff in a way that I can’t, so I know my clients and their websites are in great hands with her.

Krista Rae - WordPress Development for Designers

Hey, I'm Krista!

Creating memorable brands and websites is where your time is best spent. That's how you serve your clients. That's how you make an impact. And that's how you bring in the dollar bills. But the code that comes with designing those intentional websites isn't your cup of tea. Sure, you can push through and make it happen. But it takes way too long, your creativity is limited by your coding abilities, and it totally ruins the excitement as you near the end of a project.

That's what I'm here for! I'm your partner for all things code, tech, and WordPress so you can focus on the pieces of your projects that matter.

Amanda Creek

I wanted more time in my day to do things besides learning new coding skills. I love that she's organized and results driven. I have a new-found peace of mind that work is getting done - and getting done beautifully and quickly!
