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.

When it came time to design my website choosing Apt design was the best decision I could have made. Apt Design is always on time with all projects and the quality of work is second to none.

…artistic intuition that can’t be learned, keen insight into what a project needs, the people skills to lead the creative process, the organizational skills to manage the whole undertaking, and the work ethic to get the job done when and how it should be.

Working with a new designer can be overwhelming – but through Brad’s organizational systems and resources, we were able to work through various projects in record turn-around timing. Additionally, our latest posters and designs have captured the hearts and attention of the community. We increasingly receive requests such as “how can I get one of those posters?!”

The design work is flawless, the content is accurate and always within the project budget. He is consistently able to be reached, is open to questions and comment, and each project has been completed on time.

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!

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.

Brad provided very clear and understandable (for those of us who are tech challenged) directions on the process, explaining the steps he would take to build and design the site, as well as the input he wanted from me, and the training involved once the site was complete. Brad, who has a sharp eye for design, ran with it and produced a great site. He does good work.

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.
