We design custom WordPress themes for your website, so you can take advantage of the most robust “Content Management System” on the market. A content management system is a tool that helps you manage the creation and updates to web pages on your web site.
Custom WordPress Design and Integrated Programming
Our preferred platform for web development is WordPress. WordPress started as just a blogging system, but has evolved to be used as full web content management system and so much more through the thousands of free plugins and widgets built by a community of open source developers. Not only is it easy to update content on a website without knowing much more than how to send an email but WordPress is also backed up by a virtual army of thousands of really smart people. These smart people are the ones building widgets, plug-ins, fixing bugs, and helping users that are just getting started.
The old days of static html are going by the wayside, and new CMS based sites (WordPress, Joomla, Drupal) are becoming industry standard. Connecting your site with Social Media sites like “Facebook” and “Youtube” to “Twitter” and “LinkedIn”
Benefits of Dynamic Web Pages
One of the many benefits of utilizing dynamic content for your business site is the control the site administrator (you) has over the placement of content on the website. For example, when new content is posted to the site, such as a “News Press Release” or a “New Product”, it can automatically be featured on the homepage. Not only does this help with your clients keeping abreast of everything new happening with your business, but it also allows the search engine spiders to easily find and index new pages of the site.
Creating a custom WordPress design isn’t easy unless you know what you’re doing, but hiring someone who does know opens up a whole range of possibilities that didn’t exist with your old static html site. With Entropic Studio on the project, we can use WordPress to create anything you can imagine.
A Word on Responsive Design
The control which designers know in the print medium, and often desire in the web medium, is simply a function of the limitation of the printed page. We should embrace the fact that the web doesn’t have the same constraints, and design for this flexibility. But first, we must “accept the ebb and flow of things.”
— John Allsopp, “A Dao of Web Design“
Responsive design is the process of making a website that will conform or, “respond” to its environment. Its environment might be a browser on your desktop computer or an application on your smartphone. In either case, your website should behave accordingly and look good while doing it. Fluid grids, flexible images, and media queries are the three technical ingredients for responsive web design, but it also requires a different way of thinking. Rather than quarantining our content into disparate, device-specific experiences, we can use media queries to progressively enhance our work within different viewing contexts.

In recent years, I’ve been meeting with more companies that request “an iPhone website” as part of their project. It’s an interesting phrase: At face value, of course, it speaks to mobile WebKit’s quality as a browser, as well as a powerful business case for thinking beyond the desktop.”
