Your one-stop webshop for WordPress websites
My name is Susanne Friedrich. I makeWordPress websites.
I have produced web sites for more than a decade after studying Graphic Design and Photography at Massachusetts College of Art. I have also studied painting and printmaking at The Art Institute of San Francisco, ceramics at SF City College and glass at The Crucible in Oakland, all of which have had a profound influence on my visual style.
I honed my web skills during four years as Senior Designer at Zoomedia Inc, a boutique agency specializing in communication for the Life Sciences, before venturing out on my own.
I learned the art and craft of coding in HTML, and later XHTML and CSS, by reading and experimenting. I wanted to create websites that loaded quickly, were accessible on various browsers, were easy to read on text-only devices and were easy to update.
Then I discovered WordPress and became an enthusiastic fan of this brilliant, open-source tool. I was amazed by the ease of adding pages, of time-stamped posts, of grouping entries into categories. More importantly, it allowes my clients to take over as webmaster after the site is launched and gives them an easy and intuitive way to make changes to the content of their site.
WordPress is no longer just for blogging, but is a highly versatile content management system for beautiful, robust websites.
I build my sites by creating child themes which use a primary theme’s functionality. I choose themes with clean coding and trustworthy webshops behind them. Some of my favorites are Woothemes, Organic Themes and Themetrust. So, in a nutshell I can use my skills in CSS and HTML to create a unique look and feel to any theme. I have spent many hours finding and trying out dozens of themes and have discovered a handful that I found to be dependable with an excellent backend and a trustworthy company behind them.
I specialize in creating portfolio websites for photographers, designers, and craftsmen and women, because I know how to edit a portfolio and I understand how important visual impact is.
Since I am also a photographer I often create images for my web clients, like headshots and architectural images. You can see my photographic portfolio at my other website sanneArt.com
