Zack in office)

That’s me in my office in South Somerset, UK. test

I run zorbixthemes.com with my wife Louise where we sell stock and custom WordPress themes. We started out on Themeforest in July 2012 but later became a independent Themeshop in order to continue growing.

I also am a founding partner of ddmcollective.net, “Design Develop Market”. We combined forces to create a excellent team of Designers, Marketers and Developer to offer our clients a full service from project conception to completion.

I’m a full stack senior developer with 13 years experience making websites.

The fail rate of web projects is high. This is due to a number of factors, poorly written code, poor project management, poor planning.

I don’t just throw up a site and hope for success. I guide my clients through a process that helps to achieve success.

Maintainable

Have you been frustrated about not being able to edit your own website text when you want to? Or been overwhelmed by constant site maintenance?

If you’re like me you want a website that doesn’t require constant updates or work, once your site is up you want to concentrate on your business and on your site copy.

For simple brochure sites I use platform’s that are easy for you to edit text, add pages and blog posts. It’s the ultimate in low maintenance and simplicity. You can make simple site edits without knowing code and without a big learning curve.

I’ve been working with PHP, Javascript and CSS since 2004 and with WordPress since 2011.

Once again Zackary kills it for us! This guy is a killer developer with a great, design-oriented eye. Jeff Immer

It all starts with a plan

It’s important to start custom WordPress starts with a strategy project to make sure that your budget is spend in the most effective way and to ensure the project is a success. The result of the strategy project is a full development plan ( this is different then a brief or proposal ).

It’s not about just throwing up a website, it’s about making something that achieves a goal.

There are so many things to consider, like choosing the right tool for the job.

There are many important decisions to be made before a line of code is written - if any! Too many projects fail because of poor quality websites and little planning.

I don’t just make websites, I help you to achieve a successful project.

WordPress plugin extensions / modification

I modify plugins by creating custom extension plugin. This means your changes are not lost on updates. I create plugins that meet WordPress best practices, this makes plugins more secure, better maintainable and less likely to break on updates.

Custom WordPress themes & plugins

I create custom themes and plugins to WordPress best practices, making them secure and maintainable. I can create Custom WordPress themes that you can easily self manage and edit by using the very popular beaver builder page builder.
