Spadewerk is a web design and development shop in Nova Scotia, Canada.
I build websites for organizations trying to make the world a nicer place.
I Design & Build Websites
With full WordPress CMS capability
I often say that I am a designer by education and a developer by trade. Website design is still part of what I love to do and once the design is done I can plug in a system that will allow you to make those day-to-day updates yourself.
I Work With WordPress
WordPress is my [and others] content management system of choice and we can do great things with it. We can use it to build fully scalable websites and social networks, membership systems, and online portfolios. If you just want to use WordPress to run your blog, that’s okay too.
I Build Social Networks
Ask me about Buddypress
Social networking is more than keeping friends up-to-date on your weekend plans. A network can act as your organization’s meeting place to share ideas, or your company’s online space to keep the contact lists and other important documents.
And a little friendly advice
Helping clients figure out their online needs takes up most of the day here at Spadewerk. I assist clients with a whole range of issues, from the basics of setting up their website hosting, to choosing which application to use to drive the company network and manage their website. I like answering questions and know which questions need to be asked.
I Maintain Websites
And can teach you how to look after yours
Proper maintenance is the key to keeping a website running smoothly but the reality is that sometimes there isn’t the time, skill, or resources available in-house to make this happen. I have been providing website maintenance to clients for over a decade and I pride myself on being responsive, quick, and efficient. Launching a new website is a monumental task, but the real work is keeping it maintained as time goes by.
