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 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.
Recently our company engaged the services of Creative Elements by Aurelien to help with some projects we were working on. We needed input that was both creative and tutorial. Creative Elements by Aurelien was more than able to deliver in both areas. The work was done on time and on budget and with a sense of understanding of our business model and culture. I would not hesitate to use Creative Elements by Aurelien for future projects.
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 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.
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.
Working with Aurelien was a pleasure. To pick only three attributes doesn’t fully describe the service he provides. From the beginning concept of what we were looking for right through to the final product, Aurelien was on target and exceeded our expectations and needs. His timeliness, efficiency and creativity made the project effortless. Aurelien takes the time to understand all aspects of the client. His product and service is a great display of passion and knowledge.
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.
We were very happy with our current website but wanted to make it more mobile friendly. I had approached several firms for a quote but was not happy with their response and pricing. Aurelien a new commercial insurance client to our office approached me to see if can be of any service and after letting him know what I needed he was able to provide me some good options. He setup our website on a great new platform that was very mobile friendly but also enhanced our overall website and made it easier to navigate and use. Aurelien provided me a very competitive price that included not just a mobile site but a brand new site. Aurelien was very easy to deal with and very accommodating throughout the whole process. He is very professional and followed through with the proposal and timelines he promised on. I would recommend Aurelien to any company looking to create a new website or enhance the current one they have.
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.
