You need the team Expert Calgary WordPress Designer to help you unleash the full power of WordPress!
Whether you’re thinking of designing a brand new website or redesigning an old one, WordPress is one of the most powerful platforms available to achieve fantastic results!
What is WordPress?
WordPress is an online platform that was used only for blogging in the past. In 2013, it has celebrated its 10th anniversary and is now powering roughly 20% of the World Wide Web!!!
With more than 60 million users and over 25,000 plugins available, it is now a fully developed platform capable of running some of the most wonderful websites on the web.
Check out some of the notable WordPress users and discover how popular and trusted this platform is!
What can WordPress do for me?
There are 2 types of WordPress that are available:
This is where you would create your own website if you felt like experimenting with it and learning along the way. Your website’s URL will be something like yourbusiness.wordpress.com and it will be hosted on WordPress servers for you. This is a great way to get started but is very limited in terms of future growth and use of fantastic features.
This is what a professional WordPress designer would use to design your website.
This time, the WordPress platform is downloaded as a package of files and installed on a server with a reputable host.
Now your web designer can fully customize your website and your URL can be your own domain name like yourbusiness.com.
Investing in a great website solution from a reputable web designer can go a long way to succeed online.
What are themes?
Themes are to your website what the underground foundation is to your home. A great, well developed theme can become a solid and powerful foundation for your website and support you as a long-term strategy.
Reputable WordPress designers constantly work at improving and optimizing their themes which, in turn, help your website always benefit from latest technologies and code standards.
How about plugins, what are they for?
Plugins are little pieces of code that “plug” into your WordPress website to enable a new feature. Some are very small and simple such as adding a Google map to your website and other fully developed e-commerce solutions to help you sell your products online.
Although most plugins are free, be prepared to pay for some that will bring you significant value.
Can I update my own website?
Yes indeed! WordPress is designed as a CMS (Content Management System) which allows users to update their own content. There are different levels of permissions available and depending on your needs and the complexity of the website, your web designer will offer suggestions on how to efficiently setup a CMS strategy.

Here’s what our clients say that makes us blush…
Aurelien has taken a homemade, amateur video and transformed it into a video that is interesting and easy to watch. He really listens to what you, the customer, would like to portray to your audience and also offers new ideas and advice. A creative, talented and intuitive young man! Thank you Aurelien for making my business more accessible!
We have recently opened a guest house. We knew that the success of our project depended mainly on the quality of the website. Calling upon Aurelien’s skills and professionalism through his company “Creative Elements”, we haven’t been disappointed. The website is performing really well, it is praised and loved by our guests who find it attractive, beautiful and easy to use. Thank you for your professionalism and your availability that contributed to a very good start of our project.
Aurelien was referred to me by a close friend. He is professional and knowledgeable about the online world. Aurelien was patient in answering all my questions and took the time to show me exactly what he was doing behind the scenes on my website enabling me to do it on my own. I always learn something new when we work together.
I was referred to Aurelien by a good friend. He had done an amazing website for her, and I wanted to update my practice website as well. From the beginning Aurelien was very thorough and made sure all of our requirements were met. He spent a lot of time with me one on one designing the website, the colors, and a new logo. I am very happy with the final result, we have received so many compliments from patients and colleagues on the user friendliness and the look and feel of the website. Thank you Aurelien, your hard work and attention to detail has really made a difference for our practice.
I had been looking for somebody to create a new website for quite some time, but most people were to “techie” for me and I could not relate to them. When I met Aurelien I right away sensed that he had a holistic approach and had an understanding of the service industry. I am very happy with my website. It is alive and vibrant. I love my new logo and I especially appreciated the process of creating the new logo together with Aurelien, the graphic artist, my husband Willem and myself. I appreciate Aurelien’s patience during the creative process because I needed time to become crystal clear what I wanted. Thank you.
I contacted Aurelien to help me learn how to use an Apple computer. Aurelien was extremely helpful and now he works with me on a number of marketing initiatives. Aurelien is one of those guys who ads value at every turn and I am so happy to have him working with me and my team.
The use of Creative Elements by Aurelien, to help us create a new logo for our company along with refine our web presence, was a great success. Aurelien took the time to: really understand our business; our successes; the keys to which we believe make us unique; along with direction we are moving towards. His creative ideas helped us establish a solid foundation for the communication and advertising needs of our business, not only with the refinement of our logo and website, but the integration with other social media channels like LinkedIn. Outside of the technical expertise Aurelien brings to the table, he is also very scope, schedule and cost focused allowing us to stay on task, and on track, for the delivery of this project. With the success of this project, we’ve made the easy decision to engage Creative Elements for additional services and support. We are truly happy with what he delivered and where we are going.
I had the pleasure of working with Aurelien while having my website redesigned. His patience and sincere enquiry into my vision and goals for the website and my business were invaluable. He was always on time for appointments and took all feedback to heart in an open and professional manner. His ideas and passion for the success of the project inspired me to reach for the best vision possible for my work as a coach. I continue to work with him as I move toward publishing articles and Newsletters as well as considering videos for my site. He is professional at all times and has in depth knowledge of the technical requirements of web development and artistic display. He continues to learn and grow in his own field by studying new technologies and artistic design. His work ethic is exceptional. I have no hesitation in recommending Aurelien to anyone requiring professional web design and construction as well as video and audio projects.
Aurelien designed a superior website, exceeding our expectations, in time, and at a reasonable cost. He is very proficient and well organized. We have no hesitation in recommending him.
I have been a PC user for years, and when I decided to get an iPad, I worked with Aurélien to learn the most effective ways to use it. He is an excellent teacher: knowledgeable and encouraging. He challenges me to think about how to solve problems on my own. Aurélien has also been proactive in introducing me to several new apps that will make my life easier. I most strongly recommend him.
