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…
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.
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.
We are very happy to have been introduced to Aurelien and his services. His experience and his knowledge has help us set up a highly functional IT environment for both our restaurants, Cassis Bistro and Suzette Bistro. Aurelien is very good at listening and understanding specific needs and delivers a solid solution. He can adapt his training to accommodate any level of knowledge and skill set. He quickly responds to emergency situations. He is very reliable and we highly recommend him.
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.
[…]I worked with Aurelien and he was very helpful. […] I thought it would be awesome to be able to have some help with the computer while I was away….just in case! […]I was absolutley delighted to be able to now have tech support while abroad in Mexico. Prior to leaving Calgary, Aurelien came to my house for a couple of sessions to show me how to sign a document without needing to print and scan, among other things he believed I might need to know while out of the country. Each session I have had with Aurelien I have found him to be very knowledgeable and helpful. He is patient and is able to explain in terms that I can understand. I highly recommend Aurelien.
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.
Aurelien is a highly-focussed professional who delivers superb customer service. He went beyond my expectations with a technical challenge that I had and I highly recommend him to assist any person or organization in need of sharp, fast, reliable results. Thank you Aurelien.
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 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.
Aurelien has been a terrific in helping me implement different ideas into my teaching. The one on one training is excellent and allows me to work at my own pace. Aurelien was instrumental in helping me develop my personal and classroom blog. Developing the blog not only will help my students, but has helped me reflect as a teacher as well. Take a look at my class website: http://missvidotto.edublogs.org/. The blog looks professional and Aurelien was always willing to answer questions or concerns that I had when I arrived for training. In addition, I recently began using a Mac computer. Aurelien spent time teaching me commands that would allow me to work at a more efficient pace. Introducing me to key chain has been terrific as a way to remember my forgotten passwords. In addition, Aurelien has spent time showing me how to use iMovie and different apps such as Over can be implemented in the classroom. This a terrific way to engage my students and have them find ways of applying what they have learned more into the real world. Aurelien is flexible with his time and was willing to work around my busy schedule as I live in Lethbridge and was commuting to Calgary for training. He is also willing to setup Skype sessions which is great. Aurelien’s training has helped me learn new and engaging things I can incoporate into my classroom. This is turn creates happy and engaged students! I would highly recommend Aurelien if you are looking for training in setting up a blog, website, or Apple training.
