Premium Websites – Sunshine Coast

At Sunshine Design we have been building premium WordPress websites with DIVI Theme and builder for over 7 years. WordPress sites are great for showcasing your brand and adding extra content in the form of projects and blog posts. Divi is the most popular theme of 2020 and for good reason. 

DIVI builder is the secret weapon

Divi comes as a theme and also as an independent builder plug-in. This gives you the flexibility to you choose from any of the quality themes by Elegant Themes

In saying that I have tried some of the other themes from Elegant Themes, but always come back to Divi for flexibility of design options.

The Divi theme is the flagship theme and builder for Elegant themes, and as such is always being improved and optimised.

DIVI – the most popular theme in 2020 and 2021

Divi was the most used WordPress theme in 2020 (Over 2.8 million+ site owners use Divi theme). It’s generated a lot of positive reviews. Easy for beginners and clients with no coding skills and great for designers.

Website designers love using Divi builder

Reliability, security and technology upgrades and support, design options, no coding, front and back end options, unlimited usage and lifetime membership. There are also a number of optional widgets that 3rd party developers are making for the theme.

What about Elementor you say?

Yes, there are other comparable themes and builders in the market such as Elementor which has similar features.

I have considered using this theme due to recommendations from other designs. But on doing the research I couldn’t find anything within the theme that couldn’t be done within DIVI. In saying that, I would design with Elementor if a client asked me to or needed an upgrade to an existing design, but at this stage, I feel more comfortable in being an expert at one theme builder at a time.

Unless there is no obvious upside, it’s easy to stick to what I know, which at this stage is Divi. My clients love DIVI and so do I.

Website design philosophy

I get a kick out of designing beautiful, streamlined websites which convert visits into money for my clients.

I believe that web design should be eye-catching, elegant, easy to navigate, and easily found by potential customers.

Websites should be expertly designed and easily customised,  as well as being easy to maintain with in-house editing after the handover of the site.

Front end editing with Divi Builder – similar to WIX

All of our premium sites use an intuitive front end editing builder and a theme called Divi Builder. The front end editing is similar to something like WIX. We subscribe to the lifetime membership of the DIVI product and pass this on to you, so you will always have the latest version and features to keep up with improvements in technology. This intuitive front end builder has over 40 customisable modules and always improving.

Refresh an older website design

If your website is looking old, we offer the service of staging sites. This means making a temporary copy of your current site that can be easily tweaked and converted to a Divi design.

Once you’re happy with the improvements in design and functionality we simply move the staging website design to your own domain name to make the site live without any major interruption to your business.

Other website options include WIX, other WordPress themes and Shopify.

Obviously, from my previous paragraphs, I prefer to design with Divi, due to how efficiently I can produce quality sites, but in saying that I have successfully built and used other platforms and other WordPress themes.

Regardless of the platform, I’m highly skilled in SEO, design, marketing and advertising, which can be used on any platform.

DNS, SEO, social and marketing skills needed for success in your online marketing

The goal of a great website

Everything I do in website design is aimed at increasing traffic and retaining potential customers. Because of this, we need an easy to navigate website that has relevant content. In turn, this leads to subscription sign-ups, enquiries and phone calls. Combining commercial design and responsive online optimisation, we can successfully achieve functionality, speed, beauty, SEO and user experience.
Website design can be a challenge to achieve that perfect balance. And this the reason I love it so much.
At Sunshine Design I’m passionate about sharing experience, wisdom and my love for online advertising. And at the end of the day, I want to help you to produce an easy to find and relevant website for your business.
Business owners are often time-poor. But a good website can help give you back that time by increasing leads without any extra effort.

Keeping your business thriving with an optimised website

As a designer, my business would be dead in the water without an online folio of work. Plus online is such an immediate medium for summing up and showcasing what my business is about. As well as that, my website allows immediate interaction with the client.
An optimised website can work quietly, day and night while you’re spending your valuable time working on face to face relationships and other productive things in the business.
In summary, I love that an optimised web design is fluid, intuitive and flexible. You are able to update your brand or message is only a few clicks away with new post and content.

How did you find this site and did you enjoy your experience on this page?

If you found this site easily. And if you found navigating to this page was intuitive and easy to navigate, that should tell you a lot. I understand how to find the pinpoint an effective strategy for your business. I have tools and training for SEO. Plus plugins and analytics that I use to get the most out of the content. Because of this, I can help you find web traffic and then maximise your user experience. And by doing both things well will give you the best chance to create some real business opportunities.

The best WordPress theme and builder

At Sunshine Design we only use the best quality themes, builders and plugins from Elegant Themes. Shown here is one the many free layout packs from Divi. The Divi theme and builder are my primary tools for building WordPress websites. And although this website preview is one of the free templates available to download with my lifetime subscription. I generally start my sites with a clean slate. However, this is a good example of what can be achieved with the Divi theme. And if you love this template, it could be a great starting point for your next site.

Fully customised design and functionality

Every element, colour, font and arrangement is completely editable. And the unique thing about Divi is that you can edit from the back end and the front end depending on your preference. Every element and page design can be duplicated and moved between the site. This makes the design process very efficient and leaves valuable time to hone the functionality, look and feel and optimise things like SEO and UI (user experience).

Music website design

A funky brand design and website for music producer – Stufly. This music collaborator is in his late 40s so is not overly keen to promote his own image. He wants to market his music to a younger audience so I’ve used clever imagery to achieve this and keep his face off the marketing. It keeps the brand looking young and current. His music is modern electronic, chill and pop.
