Experienced WordPress Website Designer

Experienced WordPress Developer over 15+ years experience. I make complete websites to any design and also can update older websites for SEO, page speed, and new designs. Fast turnaround and reasonable rates. I work mostly in WordPress, which means I know how to use it, and how to make it work in unique ways. I’ve built sites across many themes with many different purposes, needs and audiences. I'm a WP Elevation member and am comfortable with WordPress development, customizations and tweaks. I also use visual drag and drop web builder so that you can continue to maintain your website easily. I can be hired for small tweaks, to take your copy and assets and create a site, or to do the whole thing from soup to nuts. My communication skills make me particularly suited to tell a story across a site and organize content effectively and strategically. Thank you and look forward to working with you ❤️ PS. I speak fluent English, French and Portuguese

Work-in-progress. Building an online store with WordPress and WooCommerce can be a very straight forward task. Think again, when the briefing of this project was to create an online store capable of analysing devices, perform buyback operations, repair devices and sell refurbished devices, all-in-one, this is where things start to be a bit complex! WooCommerce is by far one of the best options for an online store, and even it’s about a fully custom platform you still can take advantage from it and the wonderful API behind. It is still under heavy work but you can take a sneak peak at the front end designs.

Designing a logo can be a tremendous task especially when you’re doing it for a large organisation with various departments involved. One of the good ways I personally found, is illustrated here, you can see that it was starting with a broad range of suggestions and then refined along the way to reach a final version. A nice thing is to always have a logo presented in diverse situations as I don’t expect business owners to be Photoshop experts nor to have a crystal ball.

Work-in-progress. This is quite an exciting project, build a platform that is midway between eBay and Etsy for fine art items in Belgium and Luxembourg. It is obviously based on WordPress using the excellent WP Job Manager plugin. Many other features are including in this website including an advanced subscription system, dynamic coupons, and mobile notifications to the sellers. The biggest challenge was to be able to marry both a super simple user interface with some advanced functions without loosing the customer focus.

When the Downtown Sacramento Partnership called me after a full year of silence, it was nothing I could expect. They had launched their website to the market with great success and faced a tricky challenge: avg. 250 visitors per minute over the last 12 hours and climbing. Their web sever was literally dying, unable to serve that volume. Their web host simply suggested to upgrade their dedicated server, issue not resolved. The Mission: Fix the problem ASAP. Solution: I jumped straight into that project, scaled down their web server and deployed a front-end caching by Amazon Web Services CloudFront, back-end caching by Varnish and some other ingredients in the secret sauce! Result: After a couple hours of intense and challenging work, their website was back to business, serving webpages under 2 seconds for both registered and non-registered users.

When jlipsey sent me a message, I knew it wasn’t to have a chit chat. We met each other on the site about 2 years ago and done quite a lot of projects together. For this particular project, he explained me the concept of his new business model he wanted to launch. After an initial call, he basically asked me to sort out everything, from design to copywriting, including web development. After only 4 weeks, he just had to hit the Publish button and direct traffic to his website. Dozens of customers subscribed on the first week, happy launch, happy customer!

This project is a direct result of the Freelancer Preferred Program. A staff member reached me with the initial brief of the client who wanted a simple yet effective website for his business. The key points were to be perfectly fluent in English and be able to guide the customer through the whole process. As a matter of fact it’s always great to have a Freelancer staff member to screen your project in order to show something comprehensive to the Freelancers. Turns out that this Australian client has been delighted of the experience, saving him a headache to communicate with someone that “don’t get it”.

Excellent WordPress developer, my website was very complicated to build and it was done on time and everything I wanted included was done. I can not imagine where I would be without him. I would definitely hire again and recommend to anyone building a WordPress site.

"A freelancer for 15 years, David discovered Freelancer a little late but quickly rose to become one of the site's sought-after preferred WordPress designers" Read more at pages 46-47.

Nómades digitales, un nuevo modelo para trabajar con independencia

Marilina Esquivel for "La Nación" (Leading Argentine daily newspaper)
Como freelancers y autónomos, los jóvenes se resisten a emplearse dentro de una empresa de 9 a 18?y ofrecen su expertise mientras viajan por el mundo. "Un trabajo fijo es lo peor de la vida." La opinión de David Maillard, un experto en sistemas belga de 36 años que hace tres dejó su país natal para brindar servicios de desarrollo de sitios y de cloud computing a clientes de todo el mundo mientras vive y viaja por Brasil, resume simplificadamente el pensamiento de muchos nómadas digitales.

AdoraWeb Factsheet

AdoraWeb
Explaining all the ins-and-outs of web technologies to business owners can be very challenging. In a sense, you are shifting the way they see the future. To facilitate this process we created a visual Factsheet that explains some of the core concepts from the most obvious to the most advanced. The Factsheet can be presented over a Video Chat session on Freelancer.

Curriculum Vitae

David Maillard
A couple of months before starting on Freelancer, I have been asked to create a CV. After some long minutes of thinking in front of a blank sheet, I've thrown away everything I knew about a Curriculum Vitae. I started doing one in Adobe Photoshop (correct, it's not the appropriate software!), in the form of a sausage machine where the reader is guided in a process and told a story. Don't be afraid to be original, it creates memorable experiences! Link available for customers.
