Client Reviews

Work Process

I study your brief and listen to you

Ideally you will have a brief detailing your project requirements which I can examine. We can then have a phone/video meeting to discuss your goals & ideas in person.

I prepare an offer & project milestones

I will prepare an offer based on your requirements, and divide the project into separate milestones with time estimates for each. This will act as a guideline we can both follow.

I allocate a private staging area for you

If we agree on the project terms, I will create a private staging server for you, which will allow you to follow the entire process, and send me your feedback on each completed milestone.

I translate your vision into design

I will then create a live demo of your landing page using the materials & artwork you provide. I will make the revisions you require on this demo before I move on with the rest of the design & development process.

I guide you in all technical decisions

I will provide safe, tried and tested premium plugins for most of your functionality needs. If you need to make decisions regarding technical issues, such as hosting or CDN needs, I will guide you towards your best options.

I debug, optimize & deploy your website

At the end of our last milestone, I will test your website on different browsers and device sizes for any bugs & issues. I will then optimize all your assets, implement the necessary cache, and migrate the website to its final location.

About Nurdan*

Born and raised in Istanbul, I have been living in Athens, Greece most of my adult life. Here I co-founded my first web design agency back in 1998 and partnered it successfully for 10 years.

The following decade I took part in a couple of start-ups based out of Istanbul and served as their CTO, alongside freelance consulting on web technologies & design. Throughout this period, freelancing came forward as a more natural fit for me as I increasingly found independent work more rewarding than my corporate endeavors.

I love what I do, so my work takes up a large part of my life. I often spend my off hours trying to keep my know-how & skill set up-to-date and my perspective fresh. When I’m not in front of a computer, I read mostly non-fiction, watch mostly fiction, and enjoy long walks in the company of podcasts.

Technology has always been at the forefront of my journey as it consistently helps me expand my world, yet I believe in a simple, uncluttered way of life. I try to keep my communication, design and work process in line with that philosophy.

Even though I come from a full-stack development background, I became a true WordPress ambassador over the years, as it is arguably the ultimate reusable code ever written. 

Powering 30% of all websites today, including The New Yorker, BBC America, Facebook Newsroom, Microsoft News, and even Sweden’s official website, it is a more secure, more accessible, and more time & cost efficient website back-end system than any one single developer can code & maintain. 

Over the past 10 years I have created beautiful & robust WordPress powered websites for a myriad of happy clients.

* My name is pronounced Noor-DUHN

Let's build your next website together.

Whether you already have a design you want to bring to life, or you need help to decide on a direction yet, with my professional experience spanning over two decades, I will guide you through the entire process seamlessly.
