Website Design and Development

While our designers and developers can build websites using any platform, we specialize in utilizing the WordPress framework. Our developers create personalized, custom themes and plugins for our clients. Utilizing this open source technology, you have the ability to control your website’s content. You can change content, add or remove pages, and control almost anything else you may want to alter.

Typically you have less than 10 seconds to make an online first impression. Our philosophy: Create every website to stop the clock. This is accomplished by:

  • A clear, targeted presentation
  • User friendliness
  • Responsive design
  • Consistent navigation
  • Strong branding
  • Appealing graphic design
  • Learn more about Our Process.

JF WebDesign employs the latest techniques when developing its customer’s websites. Most notably, these sites are now built utilizing responsive design.

Wikipedia defines Responsive web design (RWD) as a web design approach aimed at crafting sites to provide an optimal viewing experience—easy reading and navigation with a minimum of resizing, panning, and scrolling—across a wide range of devices, from mobile phones to desktop computer monitors.

WordPress Development

Like JF WebDesign, WordPress started in 2003.  Starting as a simple blogging system, WordPress has evolved into the largest self-hosted blogging tool in the world, used on millions of sites and seen by tens of millions of people every day.

WordPress is an Open Source project, which means there are people all over the world working to improve the platform every day.

WordPress has expanded into a full content management system. Furthermore, through thousands of plugins and widgets and themes, WordPress is limited only by your imagination.

A Little History

WordPress was born out of a desire for an elegant, well-architectured personal publishing system built on PHP and MySQL and licensed under the GPLv2 (or later). It is the official successor of b2/cafelog. WordPress is fresh software, but its roots and development go back to 2001. It is a mature and stable product. We hope by focusing on user experience and web standards we can create a tool different from anything else out there.
