Cheri is a Portland, Oregon
A Bachelor’s degree in Applied Technology and 14+ years of experience in web development and digital design contribute to Portland Web Designer Cheri Calvert’s ever-expanding knowledge base.
Her design background makes her a favorite with artists as she takes technology beyond the utilitarian scope, accurately interpreting and conveying a client’s personal style. Her communication skills enable her to effectively listen to the clients’ needs, create customized training material, and empower owners to maintain their own websites.
She is currently focusing on WordPress websites, customizing PHP-based database-driven Content Management Systems (CMS) and shopping carts using HTML5 and CSS3 and enjoying life on the Columbia River on Hayden Island in Portland, Oregon.
“Life is ever evolving and small business owners and non-profits really need an economical option for Web Design and Internet Marketing. I have been working with various Content Management Systems for the past 10+ years and have found WordPress to be the easiest option for my clients to use.”
Originally built as a BLOG platform, WordPress has matured into a much more robust framework that now powers more than 20% of the web! That means that more than 400 million people use or view WordPress blogs and websites every month!
With literally thousands of plugins that extend what WordPress does, functionality is nearly limitless and at a fraction of the cost of custom programming. Many notable brands, including The New York Times, TED, TechCrunch, Mashable, and CNN use WordPress.
“I enjoy empowering clients to manage their websites themselves when they want to invest the time. Otherwise, I am always there help out and troubleshoot when needed.”
