THE CLEANEST CODE
YOU’VE EVER SEEN

My HTML is validated and search engine optimized, my CSS is organized and uses best practices, and my WordPress sites are easily updatable. Everything is beautifully responsive and works on all devices. Frameworks and code trends are avoided to ensure code is easy to maintain and lasts longer. It’s my job to ensure you never have to deal with ugly old code ever again.

About Me

LET’S WORK
TOGETHER

My clients are design agencies and freelancers who already have finished design mockups, but need it coded into a fully working WordPress website. I take on coding projects dealing with WordPress, responsive design or static site development. I deal with all of the HTML, CSS, JS, and PHP needed to fully integrate a design into WordPress. Work is always delivered on-time or ahead of schedule with emphasis on great communication.

Services

  • FRONT-END DEVELOPMENT

    Organized and semantic HTML5 and CSS3 to bring your designs to life. I prefer coding from scratch instead of a framework, with no layers to ensure there’s no junk code or bugs.

  • RESPONSIVE DESIGN

    No need to worry about what your website looks across devices, I specialize in bringing full desktop sites down to the smallest mobile, and in between. Consistency from your PSDs to beautiful usable mobile layouts is key.

  • WORDPRESS DEVELOPMENT

    Built on top of my developer theme, Super Hijinksified, I use ACF Pro to bring you the custom admin you need to edit all content, as well as specializing in custom PHP functions.

  • WOOCOMMERCE DEVELOPMENT

    I’ve worked with plenty of eCommerce websites and have found WooCommerce to be a fantastic add-on to WordPress for your store. I can help customize your cart pages, as well as guiding you to the best plugins available.

  • ADVANCED ANIMATION

    I enjoy using a mix of CSS animation, jQuery and SVG animation to bring websites to life. I usually end up combining all three for interesting effects.

  • ACCESSIBILITY & SEMANTICS

    Semantics and accessibility are important to code standards. Descriptive but short classes and commented code allow for easy revisions later on. Proper use of alt tags and labels ensure users with assistive devices can easily use your website, too.

Testimonials

  • “A truly good WordPress developer is hard to find, especially if you’re a layman. On some level, you have to have faith that the person you’re working with is smart, earnest, and just simply cares about what they’re doing. And that’s Amber. She’s affable and easy to work with. She keeps up with trends, gives honest advice if you have bad ideas, and wants to do quality work — in our case, making fast and simple-to-update WordPress sites. We’re extremely pleased with the results.”

  • “If I had the ability to clone someone, I would clone Amber before literally anyone else. Her understanding of design and attention to detail combined with her passion for code makes her a perfect development partner. It’s easy for things to get lost in translation from design to execution, but Amber just gets it. She’s responsive and a great communicator- she makes a usually stressful process delightful.”

  • “I work with a lot of developers on a daily basis but no one is easier to work with than Amber. All of the websites she builds is on-point to the design files, functions beautifully, and has a user-friendly CMS. Amber is very time efficient and cost- conscience.  She is also is very patient and pleasant to work with. Basically, she’s awesome and if I could clone her, I would!!”

She communicated at all times very effectively, reducing typical stress when working remotely with people. In 17 years of hiring freelance designers and developers, I’ve only known one other who is as professional and pleasant to work with as Amber. I just selfishly hope that giving a great testimonial does not help mean she won’t have...

  • “Working with Amber was an absolute pleasure. Nothing was too much trouble and she totally gets responsive design, which can be somewhat of a rarity! Despite the time difference between London and Nashville, Amber always got back to us straight away. Our experience with Amber completely supports our company proposition of working ‘Freely’ – you really can work with incredible talent across the pond with fantastic results. In fact, I’d argue the communication was better than that of some of our developers in the UK!...
