Start with a Functional Design Layout

A website can either enhance the experience of your consumers or cast your brand in an unflattering light, especially for online businesses. A website is often the first impression consumers have of your business or company. WordPress is made to be adaptable, simple, and SEO-friendly in its architecture. Structure your website hierarchy with logic and care so that your consumers can easily navigate through your site and access the information they need.

Here is a brief list of pages and features Big Red Jelly can build for you:

  • Homepage
  • About Us page
  • Contact page
  • Blog
  • Dropdown menus
  • Tags
  • So Much MORE!

Creating a Theme for Your Website

Outside of the structure of your website, the overall theme of your online business will set the tone and expectations for any visitors. WordPress is a relatively intuitive program, but it takes a little more planning and intention to unlock the best designs and themes for your website. WordPress offers hundreds of free website themes to get you started.

Thematic elements to consider:

  • Colors
  • Fonts
  • Logo
  • Backgrounds
  • Page layouts

Is WordPress Good for Web Design?

Overall, WordPress is one of the best free CMS options on the market today and has a lot to offer business owners


  • Has extensive customization capabilities (open code access)
  • Can incorporate third-party tools while you create a website (endless
  • plugins are available)
  • Is self-hosted, so you have greater control over design (or you can hire
  • someone to host your websites)


  • Requires technical knowledge to create and manage the site
  • Requires coding skills to tailor and troubleshoot site
  • Has a higher learning curve for beginners

Do You Need a Web Designer for WordPress?

Because WordPress offers thousands of automated themes from experts, a web designer isn’t required to create a decent website. However, though WordPress is a program you can learn and navigate for yourself, advanced customization and use of CSS are out of the comfort zone for a lot of us. To be more competitive and implement a sleeker, more polished version of your website, a designer may be beneficial.

If you don’t have the design skills (or the time) to create a fully functional and attractive website, you don’t want to sacrifice the impression and experience customers will have by interacting with your brand. If you work with the right partner, you can hire someone to help design and manage your website so that you can focus on other parts of your business or branding.

We had Big Red Jelly assist us with our website redesign and we couldn't be happier with the end result! Super quick turnaround time and professional quality.

Ottley WrightSmall Business Owner

Weekly meetings were great and always something I always looked forward to. Their follow-through is fantastic. The branding and site both look great. It was definitely an improvement from what we previously had!

Polly HillekeSalmon River Rafting

They truly hit the nail on the head with my vision. I was so scared going into this worried if they could see what I wanted. They knew my wants/dislikes and asked the right questions. They were able to create such beautiful branding and a website for me. I'm not kidding when I cried tears when I saw my branding!

Caitlyn GrimesThe Cosy Goose

Awesome, knowledgeable and very professional!

Sandor MiklósEverdime

Big Red Jelly started out with the logo design. They made several revisions and worked with us so it’d be a smooth process. They helped with naming, color scheme, digital branding, and identity. That process gave us the confidence to move into website design and development.

Jim SaundersGourmet Dumplings

They always provided consistent communication. We had never hired a service to perform these services before so we weren't sure what to expect but came out the back end pleased with the experience.

Rollin SkinnerHampton Home Loans

I was not sure what direction I wanted to go with my branding. After asking me a number of questions, the team gave me guidance on options that would work great for me, my personality, and my company. Once we had that in place that is when the fun started! I had an incredible response as I engaged friends, family, and past clients on social media as I asked for their feedback and input. I have already referred people to Big Red Jelly and will continue to do so.

Scott HeatonRealtor

They listened carefully to us and everything we had in mind, and translated that into a really solid messaging plan with lots of good ideas of their own. They have been a joy to work with!

Kelley BirrellLedger Gurus

These folks are fantastic and excellent at what they do. They were able to create completely revamped branding for our rugby event. I loved what they did so much for our schools event, we hired them again to rebrand the largest youth rugby tournament in the US!

Michael CresslerNational Schools 7s

These guys are excellent! I would highly recommend them to anyone interested in getting a quality product in an amazingly fast time at very reasonable prices. They listened to our comments and concerns and responded timely and professionally to each and every one of them. Going with them is a slam dunk!
