NCER Custom WordPress Theme

NCER had an older non-mobile friendly website with few customization options. After discussing their needs with them, we decided to run their website on the WordPress platform with a modern, custom-made theme, using the template they liked as a starting point. Knowing that customization was important to them, I made all possible elements of the website were customizable by the NCER. After completing the custom website theme, I hosted an online training session with the NCER, showing them how to use WordPress, as well as how to customize all of the elements of the website. The resulting website is a modern, mobile friendly, WordPress-based website that will easily scale with their additional websites in the future.

Post on Medium – I’m Tired

Posted by Alex Standiford.


If you have been anywhere near me over the past year, you’ll know that in the last 8 months I have went from being an industrial engineer, to a freelance industrial engineer, to blogger, and now to an employee working as a web designer and marketing manager. For me, the biggest struggle is not in the 3 big moves I’ve made professionally, but the big moves I considered, but didn’t take. I’ve been working on idea, after idea, after idea and running with it much too fast, burning myself out in the process. In many ways, this has been a pattern for me; a loop that I can’t seem to break free of. Over the years, I have a graveyard of half-finished projects in my wake, and I don’t like that.
