We are WordPress Experts.
Since 2006 We've Been Making Beautifully Designed WordPress Websites!

We were an early adopter of the WordPress platform and started making custom themes and plugins over 10 years ago. Nobody on the Gold Coast has more experience with WordPress than we do. These days, WordPress has become a tried and tested platform that is adored by digital marketers and developers for its ease of use and flexibility and responsiveness.

Great for managing content, SEO and marketing

Our project managers and design team are thinking about marketing from the beginning. Our approach to SEO and marketing is tailored to your business needs. This may include blogging, landing pages, project and service sections. With endless possibilities, WordPress is the marketer’s platform of choice.

Easy to edit content with custom fields

Forget clunky, complex page builders that are slow and generate very messy code. Our site content is managed with a lightweight, custom field plugin that is truly intuitive and requires almost no training to use. Yet, you can still achieve flexible content page templates with drag and drop sections for high-performance landing pages like this!

Our Process

When you start a new website design project with us, there are 3 main phases: design, development and content population.

  1. We create a unique custom design of the website’s main pages and sections to suit your business and content. We work tirelessly with our clients until the perfect design is achieved.
  2. We hand-code the new site with a lightweight template that is designed to be easy to update, fast loading and optimised for search engines.
  3. We then support our clients finalising the content on the staging site ready to go live! We provide all the technical support in making the site, including a free SEO and marketing guide, redirects and cloud email set up if needed.

Don’t just take our word for it…

I cannot sing enough praises about the team at Thrive. They handled graphic and web design and development for our two sister companies — including a total brand refresh — and we couldn’t be happier with the results. They are supremely talented, hard-working, and responsive.

Custom WordPress FAQs

Do you use complicated page builders?

No, we build our sites from a clean simple starter theme and then hand-code our designs so they are lightweight, easy to edit and fast loading!

Is WordPress secure?

WordPress is very secure out of the box these days. It's used by nearly 40% of websites, so any security holes have been found quickly. We add extra security and backups to our sites to tighten it even further.

Do I fully own the completed website?

You will have full copyright ownership over assets and software designed and developed. All Source Files and Assets can be provided on request.

How do you break up your payments?

Usually, we do a 40% deposit ( payment required to start work )  and then 60% on completion of the design phase ( before development - 30-day payment terms ). But if this doesn't suit we can discuss other options.
