If you are doing some research on WordPress websites, it’s important to understand the difference between “themes” and a truly custom WordPress website. That’s where we come in. At White Canvas, we design and develop WordPress websites for our clients 100% from scratch. We believe starting with an empty canvas provides the opportunity for our clients to have the website of their dreams, without being restricted by the confines of an existing theme. We believe in this process wholeheartedly, you could even say it’s our specialty! All of our custom WordPress websites are fully responsive and easy to use in the back-end, making updating your own content post-launch a breeze.
Website packages include fun things like:
- Sitemapping and site architecture
- User experience & user interface design (UX/UI)
- Website development (the coding stuff)
- Social media, newsletter and e-commerce integration
- Employee and customer portals
- Copywriting & brand photography
- Organic SEO optimization and Security enhancements
Our WordPress Website Process
Discovery & Research
Chat with us over coffee as we fill out a Website Canvas Questionnaire to uncover your user goals, design vision and functional requirements. We will research your competition and industry, and compose a project brief with appropriate solutions and deliverables.
Sitemap & Content
Next, we will work with you to determine what pages are needed on the website and map out a menu organizational structure. Content will then be collected based on your sitemap (you may provide to us or we can do the writing for you), as well as imagery and visuals.
UX & UI Design
Working from your supplied content and imagery, we will design each page for desktop and mobile platforms. These designs are delivered as PDFs, with two proofing stages for your feedback. We will also determine the best user experience strategy during this phase.
Develop & Proof
Once the designs have been approved, we will submit them for development on our test site so you experience zero down time. You will be provided with two live development proofs prior to launch. All of our websites are custom WordPress coded and fully responsive.
Testing & Launch
Before launch, we will perform thorough testing across major browsers (Safari, Firefox, Chrome, Edge and Internet Explorer), as well as desktop, tablet, and mobile devices. Once approved, we will transfer the files to your hosting account and get the site up and running.

“Aside from my website, which I'm incredibly proud of, I feel as though I now have a solid support system in place for any future needs. That the White Canvas team are not just a professional service, but a team that is behind me, supporting my business, almost a part of it. This has given me confidence in my ongoing marketing plans and ideas, and taken a huge weight off my shoulders. I can let go of the reins and allow them run with their creations with just an email from me, knowing they'll nail what I need every time.”
