When many developers work they aren't trained in visual design. Since I started in visual design alot of my methods and tastes are formed with the details of web design in mind. I love doing work where a mockup meets CSS, making things dynamic while still making them visually appealing, which sets me apart.Have a web developer that creates with the future in mind.
Beyond responsive design, many people are now coming to me to help make a site that they can actually use. Gone are the days when your key site content needs to be updated by a tech wizard. Have a web developer who knows what their doing make that content easy to update – for the results in the long haul.
I'm committed to making sure communication is clear and timelines are on point. With a small company like mine, every review and testimonial is important to me. Check out the many many very positive reviews of working with me to get a flavor of how seriously I take customer service.So perhaps we should start a professional relationship now?
If you're looking for a web developer that can get the job done, I'd love to see if I fit your needs. I thrive in WordPress development, visual design in code, UI design, interaction design, UX, and can handle all kinds of marketing sites for mid-sized business. I love web development.
You shouldn't need some pro every time you want to add a blog post or change a headline, that's why from the very start, I make sure that I develop websites that make the editing process easy. You and the people in your organization should be able to maintain your site and know how to use it effectively.Web Development isn't soul-less, I do it with your marketing at heart.
Some web developers might have any inclination to make sure your website is built around your marketing goals. But my process is about search engine optimization, building the site while looking for marketing opportunities, and developing something that is to serve your company's marketing goals through and through.
Not only is your site editable, but it's responsive. Responsive web development means that your site expands and contracts to the size of the device that it's featured on. This way you only have to edit your content once; not once for the desktop version and once for the mobile version. These kind of details matter.What is the ROI of responsive development?
Well... mobile responsive web development isn't just helpful for when people are out and about and needing to look for what you do, people are using their phones on their couches these days – scanning the web for the right fit for their needs. They don't want to have to pinch and zoom, they expect the site to work well on mobile.
You may have a very particular need or want out of your website, but something that comes up very often - is that people need the website to make them a profit. For many people the website is an integral part of their business and it's already helping them make a significant amount of money but they need it to continue to help them do well.I won't take on a project where it won't provide significant ROI.
I do my best to turn down projects, where I don't feel like I can really make a particular client profit off of the project, or it would take too long for the project to pay itself off. For me, I understand that this kind of business relationship doesn't make customers happy in the long-term, and that's the kind of clients I'm looking for.
I am an educator when it comes to digital marketing. I am a craftsman. I am someone who cares deeply about his work and the process of helping people. I love sitting and learning about businesses and thinking of ways to get the word out about their product or service. When it comes to web development, I mix in a little marketing and try to have a little ingenuity when building a new website so that it truly is the businesses most powerful marketing tool.Minneapolis web development for your WordPress Needs
I limit myself to one CMS, so that I can actually be a master at something. I know the WordPress web development in's and out's from building a site completely from scratch, to modifying a theme, to all of the latest and greatest plugins and doo-dad's. Because I hang out in WordPress all day. And I love it. I'm a WordPress web development enthusiast. WordPress is said to be able to handle most marketing websites up to websites for companies with 1,000's of employees. If you have a web development need, let's talk..
Maurice’s blog was being updated, and they had a preferred designer who they wanted to work with – but the designer didn’t understand how to build the site in WordPress. As a problem solving web developer, I sat in on the initial strategy sessions, with the wonderful marketing people over at Maurice’s and shared thoughts, strategies and concerns that might come on the blog – and how proper web development could address those concerns. The challenge was just making sure the blog would be easy to maintain in an ongoing fashion.
We worked on making sure things like featured images getting cropped happened automatically, and the right layouts for the blog were available in easy to use visual composer templates. The process of creating the blog so that the right things were set in stone, but ongoing content templates were available for use, and completely customizable – has enabled them to feel like they have a powerful blog that can be truly used as a marketing tool.
Why my experience on this project matters to you
Web development is a lot better when you have someone who speaks your language. I’ve worked with 50+ different businesses on their websites and understand the different dilemmas that come up, and I get how to provide good customer service despite the situation. Web development on Maurice’s allowed me to work within the confines of a much larger organization’s needs and requests and make sure I communicated the key things in a way that everyone would be on the same page.

Mall of America came to me looking for a more editorial and modernized feel for their new blog. Instead of getting the blog to draw traffic to their website, and other website content, they wanted to continually draw people to people into the mall.
I was part of the architecting (wireframes + sitemaps,) on this site, into the design, and developed the site on WordPress. My expertise spanning across these discipline allows me to think best how it will show up in the browser, not just in a photoshop mockup. This also gives me freedom to think up new ways that we can leverage technology to cater to you, your business’s needs, and the customer’s or client’s you serve.
Working with big, medium, and small clients, I’ve been able to expand my abilities with WordPress, and web design in general. By creating sleek, modern design for the country’s biggest mall, and arguably one of Minnesota’s most recognizable attractions I was exposed to new ideas and can put those ideas to work for you.
Why my experience on this project matters to you
You don’t have to have the same budget as a Mall of America. In fact I want to be at a price-point that caters to smaller businesses because I like the process of sitting down with business owners and entrepreneurs and learning how they do things. That is how I find what’s special about your story and your service and communicate that in your website.
“Tim did a great job conceptualizing and building a custom WordPress template to house the Mall of America blog. From the beginning of the project, Tim took a goal-oriented approach to making sure our needs were met. From wireframes to design and development, he ensured we were building a site that would help showcase the experience of being at Mall of America®. Tim paid attention to many details and worked with us to ensure the site design was compelling and delivered content to our guests in a meaningful, interactive way.”
Timothy Pate, Mall of America
