  2. Playground - Collection of my exercise related web developer



Recently, I had the opportunity to collaborate with one of my best clients, transforming their PSD design files into a customized WordPress website with a special focus on an event calendar.

  1. Custom Event Management:

    To fulfill the need for a manageable custom events feature that could easily import data through a CSV file, I leveraged the Event Calendar Pro. I then implemented several customizations to emulate the component layout from the PSD design file.

  2. Multitranslation Support

    In order to make the website multilingual, I opted for WPML. I consistently recommend WPML for multitranslation as, in my opinion, it provides a great user experience for clients, especially those unfamiliar with the WordPress platform.

  3. Unique Design Approach

    Given the unique and simple design of the PSD file, I made a strategic decision not to rely on a CSS framework. Instead, I crafted a custom CSS framework and utilities exclusively for this project.

I take pride in declaring that the project was a resounding success, and I look forward to maintaining this positive momentum while collaborating with this client on future endeavors.


Recently, I had the pleasure of working on a new project through Upwork. The client’s request was to design and develop a WordPress website using the Elementor page builder. Fortunately, the client provided me with very detailed documentation, including inspiration for layouts, colors, and typography.

To start the project, firstly, I created a mockup of the website in Figma, which the client approved before development. I then started building the website on my subdomain, using it as a staging area to ensure everything was functioning smoothly before migrating it to the client’s site.

In addition to designing and developing the website, I set up an email client to receive contact form submissions and established a cache using a plugin for improved site speed.

Overall, the project was a great success, and I’m proud of the results I achieved for the client.


I recently had the opportunity to work with one of my best clients, converting their XD design files into a custom WordPress website. The project requirements were extensive, including the development of

  1. A manageable custom events

  2. Automatic registration of audience members into a Google spreadsheet

  3. Support for multilingual functionality

  4. And a responsive site design.

To meet these requirements, I utilized a number of solutions, including

  1. custom page templates for each unique page

  2. the ACF Pro plugin for easier content management with custom fields

  3. WPML for multilingual support

  4. Bootstrap framework for handling responsive design

  5. Create custom nav walker for unique megamenu

  6. I created custom post types for both events and teams

  7. And used Contact Form 7 along with add-ons to allow user submissions to be automatically added to the Google spreadsheet and redirected to a thank-you page

I’m proud to say that the project was a success, and I’m excited to continue working with this client on future endeavors.
