Freelance Web Design
Freelance Web Design for Small and Growing businesses
My name is Theresa Thomson, and I provide freelance web design for small and growing businesses in the Metro Atlanta area and beyond. My WordPress Web Design Services focus on creating attractive, well-designed websites that perform well and are solidly built. A website that performs well loads quickly, is mobile responsive, incorporates search engine optimization (SEO) best practices, and provides leads for your business. A website that is solidly built provides a strong foundation for adding new features as your business grows.
I have always loved working in the field of technology and have done so for my entire career. Over the years, I have acquired experience designing and developing software, writing business requirements, performing technical training, and managing relationships with external technology partners.
I started out working for over 20 years in software design and development for prominent high-tech companies including AT&T and Merck & Company. During my time as a programmer, I worked on a variety of large-scale software development projects and learned to code in several languages. I also worked for a time as a business analyst in an information technology (IT) department where I developed business requirements for a college’s online student management system.
My Transition to Freelance Web Design
While working in the corporate world, I had a few opportunities to do pro bono websites for a few groups at my local church. These experiences sparked my interest in web design and eventually led to the formation of Thomson Web Services, my freelance web design business. I love the creative aspect of website design, and I enjoy creating an online presence that helps my clients look great online.
My Pivot to WordPress Web Design
When I first started out in freelance web design, I created websites using the Joomla Content Management System (CMS). After awhile, I knew I needed to pivot completely to WordPress for my web design projects. I was amazed at the beautiful websites that could be built using WordPress, and I was in awe of the huge number of high quality plugins (over 54,000) that could be “plugged” into a WordPress website to provide new features and functionality. For a new business seeking startup web design or a small and growing business, this means you can start with a basic website and as your business grows, it can be extended with specialized functionality via a WordPress plugin.
As for me, I am a huge fan of WordPress and absolutely love to use it for my web design business.
If I’m not sitting behind my desk working on a freelance web design project, I enjoy finding time to run, cook, and work out at my local gym. I am blessed to have a wonderful family, and a crazy but adorable Pembroke Welsh Corgi named Charlie who constantly amuses our family. In fact, one of my daughters recently interned for Thomson Web Services, and I tasked her with creating a website as her final internship project. She created Corg of Borg to remind our family of our well-loved but absolutely crazy boy. Pay the website a visit, and you will see many cute pictures of Charlie and find out why we nicknamed him the “Flying Demon Dog”!
