The WordPress experts

Put simply we love developing WordPress websites and have been creating custom built systems for well over a decade. The WordPress platform is super easy to use (if set up right) and can be extended and refined as your website evolves.

At Chameleon we don’t use off-the-shelf themes, we work with our clients through a proven planning, design and development process to achieve the best results and deliver a website you will be proud of.  Once launched we offer a professional and reliable support service to safeguard your investment and make sure your WordPress website continues to perform as designed.

Configured for you

WordPress is an ‘open source’ platform and has a worldwide community of developers who work on the core system as well as a wide variety of plug-ins to extend the system functions.

These plug-ins provide all the tools your website needs including WordPress security, SEO, website forms, API connections to other platforms and interactive tools such as image galleries.

We work with you to create the perfect WordPress installation, using as many core functions as we can, then selecting a trusted and minimal set of plug-ins to add logic and intelligence to your website, and if the project requires we can even build custom plug-ins specifically for you too.

Ease of use

Websites are complex products with a mix of both creative and technical elements, so our main focus is ensuring easy system management for our clients.

We use a blend of tools to make the editing process as simple as possible, so you can login, edit the content quickly and efficiently and publish.

We also build our systems in such a way that they can be extended, making sure the editing process remains as simple as possible with the wider website design and styling being consistent.

How we develop WordPress websites

A few principles that we like to stick to

Creative design

A core part of our WordPress websites involve unique, custom designs base don your specific project requirements.

We walk through a proven step-by-step design process to make sure you are involved every step of the way and the end result is unique to your business.

Custom built

All our WordPress websites are custom built for your organisation, no off-the-shelf themes here!

We take the approved layouts from the design process then fully integrate into your own bespoke WordPress theme.  This ensures a truely professional platform when delivered.

Easy to edit

We understand our clients are busy and need quick and easy tools to be able to publish their content.

We put a lot of effort into making sure that WordPress is setup in a simple and logical way


Like website speed, accessibility needs to be planned from the start during the design stages and within the development framework.

We aim to make all our websites ‘accessible’ having worked on several projects where the accessibility levels were critical and audited.

Minimal plugins

As a rule of thumb the more plugins the slower your website becomes to edit and support.

We keep things simple and use a small number of trusted industry standard plugins and the rest we build into your custom theme.


We know how important fast loading pages are to user experience and search rankings.

Right from the start of the design process we will have this in mind, as retrospectively updating existing websites is much harder to achieve the best results.
