Plugin Developer Website

I’ve worked loosely with Nick Ohrn before, and knew him to be a consummate professional who can achieve anything he sets his mind to. Author, business owner, top-notch coder and bodybuilder, Nick is one driven guy who knows what he wants. As it turns out he was the perfect client too: he knew what his goals for his website, he had initial design instruction before saying he trusted my professionalism to design just what he needed, and he was even eager to pay his bill!

For the redesign of his company’s website Nick wanted to keep or increase his incredibly high conversion rate (Nick scrutinizes his Google analytics to get the best performance he can by making subtle tweaks). In addition he wanted a design that better reflected his professionalism, which the bright primary colors of his previous design weren’t doing.

Keep the Call To Action paramount

The goal of this entire site is to get visitors to request a quote from Plugin Developer. To that end we kept the Quote form bold, easy to fill out, and consistently placed on every page. The rest of the content is basically just supporting evidence for why you need to contact Nick to develop your plugin (this site doesn’t get too many casual visitors, most are actively looking for a developer). At any point a visitor is convinced and ready to get started the form is ready to help them move forward.


When Brad delivered the initial concepts I was blown away by just how amazing they were. My goals for the redesign were clearly addressed and the initial concepts were already at the point of refinement that I had come to expect of finished products from most other creative professionals.

Strong, professional design

The professionalism of Nick’s company were conveyed in the greys and blacks of the new design. Texture, splashes of color and non-standard fonts kept the site from being boring or too monotonous. The blacks and vivid oranges present a boldness and strength that reflects Nick’s commitment to great code. Subtle touches of italic and grey kept the site elegant.

I have not known of anyone that has worked with him on a project that has not been 100% pleased with the end product but also with the process.

Traci Mann

Brad is an incredible designer. My book’s website is exactly what I wanted, even though I couldn’t even begin to articulate what I wanted before talking to Brad. Not only is the website wonderful, but he finished it faster than he promised, and he was great to work with. I am so glad I hired Brad for this project. I am absolutely delighted with the results.

Brad’s design work is creative and impeccable — and best of all, he listens well and asks all the right questions, with no assumptions about his clients’ experience.

Brad made the process of developing my web site not only painless, but positively enjoyable. His enthusiastic, “can-do” attitude permeated every discussion we had. I would recommend him to any writer looking to develop a web site!

Blair McHaney

President of The Gold's Gym Franchisee Association, Owner of Wenatchee Valley's Gold's Gyms

Brad is a guy that elevates himself to the status of “trusted advisor” and not many marketing partners understand how to do that. On top of that, I get e-mails from my staff telling me how wonderful it is to work with Brad. Brad has earned our trust and our business.

As an author, I wanted something that would showcase my books, but do so by telling a kind of story. And that is exactly what Brad accomplished. The finished product is beautiful, evocative and efficient, just like a great novel.

Hiring Brad Fitzgerald to create my website was the greatest gift I gave to myself in 2013. He is a pleasure to work with!

I had a terrific experience working with Brad. He was at all times flexible, patient, and responsive. Above all, Brad is a terrific person and working with him was a pleasure.

Reid Peifer

His design work and attention to detail is impeccable. He’s also pushed me, and our team to become better designers. When I look at finished work from Brad – I don’t see his face all over it. It’s not about him – it’s about the design. When I look at a finished project and see a happy client, happy budget and happy timeline – well Brad’s face is all over that.

Nick Ohrn

Developer and Owner of Plugin-Developer.com

I still get compliments every other week on my site design and I think a huge reason my conversions are through the roof is because of the stellar work you did on that site. That project was by far the smoothest experience I’ve ever had with a contractor and I wouldn’t hesitate an instant to work with Brad again.

Kelly Allen

Insurance Broker

Working with Apt Design is like working with a genie….”Your wish is my command!” I simply had to share my vision, and, poof, just like that, it was created! Timely, detailed, and precise. It’s comforting to know that I never have to worry when working with Apt Design. They consistently come through for me, allowing me to focus my energy in other areas.

I really can’t recommend Brad highly enough. He’s come through for us time after time, and always delivers outstanding work. His sites are beautiful and functional works of art. Brad has designed the websites for some of our biggest authors. You know he’ll deliver an amazing site, right on schedule.

And he easily and accurately incorporated my feedback in a comfortable back-and-forth dialogue that resulted in a strong final product. I remain extremely pleased with the result.
