Growpress is a WordPress agency run by Dave Wilkinson. We convert designs to WordPress themes (mainly for other designers and their customers), and we tailor existing WordPress themes for website owners who just need some tweaks.

Your Design to WordPress

If you’re a designer you can send us your Photoshop (or other format) designs to convert to a standards-compliant, responsive WordPress theme. We’ll work with you to build a theme that follows your designs and is easy for your customers to use.

If you don’t have designs ready to code, don’t worry. Get in touch and we’ll recommend a designer who can work with you (and us) on discovery & mockup design.

Theme Customisations

There are thousands of existing WordPress themes that can do most of what you want, out of the box. We can work with you to tailor a premium theme to suit your branding and your message. Take a look at our latest Theme Customisation for the Twenty Fifteen Theme.

What to expect from your new WordPress Theme

  • We can deliver a theme for you to install
  • We can install & configure your theme on your staging/live server
  • Or we can handle everything from theme development to live launch.

When you receive your new WordPress theme it will be:

  • Coded to WordPress standards.
  • Commented throughout.
  • Easy to use
  • Tested on all major browsers and devices

Customer Testimonials

I have worked with Dave on several projects. He is attentive to detail, responsive to emails, helps me find the best options to implement my ideas, and writes clean, well commented code. He has saved me lots of time and energy on projects as my business grows.

Kathy Jacobs, Kathy Jacobs Design

I am hesitant to recommend Growpress – mostly because I don’t want to risk their becoming too busy to take my projects whenever I call. I have used dozens of front and back-end development firms, but this is the outfit I turn to when I need top quality, careful craftsmanship and reliable follow-up. It’s also nice to continue to do business with people you come to regard as trusted friends.

Jeff Seaver, Seaver Interactive

Our expanding web design company needed a high quality development partner to do justice to our WordPress websites. Dave delivers on his promise to provide high quality, reliable outcomes that match the vision we create for our clients. I have no hesitation in relying upon Dave’s WordPress services.

Peter Freeman, Woof Media

Dave communicates clearly and without jargon and takes time to get to know his customers as individuals. His pricing and work is transparent and very fair: he delivers what he promises and listens well. If you need to start or develop a website, you will enjoy the process if you choose Dave and be happy with the results.

Jane Cordell, Getting Equal

Just wanted to say thank you for being patient with my hugely overbearing enthusiasm – and well done. The site looks wicked, lots of people are loving it already and it feels great. Do me favour: if one of my competitors asks you for similar work can you at least quadruple your prices?

Richard Baxter, Builtvisible

One cannot underestimate how powerful it is to have a developer say simply: “You design it, we’ll code it,” and actually mean it, but there has been no instance in nearly 2 years of work together when Dave’s team has been unable to code something we have designed exactly as we wanted.

Zac Cohen, Blankspace Strategies

I’ve both hired Dave as a developer and worked in partnership with him on projects, and I would do so again without hesitation. His work quality, dilligence and friendly nature make him my top recommendation on anything WordPress related.
