Welcome to the Design Studio
Below are the categories for hundreds of website themes and templates. Before the explosion of web templates and themes, getting on the same page with a design team could be a daunting task. Without a theme for a starting pace, clients we’re often tasked to make tedious micro-decisions on every aspect of the design build like: fonts, color schemes, design structure, images, spacing, videos and much more, making the interview a time consuming chore for both.
Fortunately, those days are behind us. Now, you can simply choose the best category for your business and then test-drive the themes to find the design that appeals to you the most, and our designers will do the rest. We can customize any theme to perfectly match your personality or business; and don’t worry, if you change your mind, we can always change the theme. The important thing is for you to find the look and feel that you want your website to have.
Frequently Asked Questions
+ Do I Have to Choose a Theme in Order to Have a Website Built?
Yes, and no, I’ll explain. Ninety percent of the websites that we build are for small business owners, who prefer to use WordPress to manage their websites. WordPress is a great content management system (arguably the best) that now powers more than 30% of the web. Its huge market share is due to it’s flexibility and ease of use. Every WordPress website begins with a starting theme, whether you choose a starting theme or not. So the answer is “no,” you do not need to pick a theme, however, our designers will pick a theme (usually StudioPress) for you to build your website. There are many benefits for you to pick the right theme, ask your designer about the best themes for your business.

North Georgia Web Design is strategically partnered with the world’s largest WordPress template and theme designers like: Genesis, Studiopress, Divi, Envanto, Thesis and many more. These partnerships allow us to offer our clients hundreds of unique designs to choose from to speed up and simplify the design process. Basically, WordPress themes offer a “jumping on” point where designer and client can find a common starting place in the design discussion, ultimately, saving our clients time and money.
Another, often overlooked, benefit of using a theme as a starting point is that they offer clients a clear and predictable ending point. Meaning, eventually, most clients will be running their website on their own, which can be either, frightening or exciting, depending on how comfortable they are with this task.
Choosing a theme that supports your comfort level and skill set, can make all the difference in whether your website flourishes or dwindles in the post-design stage. North Georgia Web designers are mindful of this, and will help you find the right theme for your skill set, as we begin every design with the end in mind. Setting up our clients to win in the post-design phase is one of our primary goals.
+ Can I Change My Mind Later After Picking a Theme?
Yes, it’s perfectly fine to pick a theme now and order the web design service. Before we begin building your website you will have an interview with one of our designers. During this conversation, it’s quite common for a client to change their mind about the theme they have chosen. So, we suggest, simply pick a theme that you like right now, and address any questions or concerns you may have with the designer when he or she calls or visits. The one caveat being, after the interview process, and during the design process, changing a theme could result in additional charges. (See our design process below.)
+ What’s the Best Theme Framework to Use?
The short answer is, they are all very good. We are partners with the largest theme companies: Divi, Genesis and Envanto marketplace themes. Even though they are all very good in their design and final product appearance, there are some differences in how each theme interacts with the webmaster.
Divi Theme by Elegant Themes: Divi theme is a WordPress theme template. You can easily customize it as per your needs. You also get a powerful website builder to make the layouts such as contact us, terms & conditions, homepage. Divi WordPress themes come with a drag and drop website builder. That means you don’t need to learn any programming for styling and designing pages.
You can build the layout with ease with the drag and drop feature. You can also customize or edit any existing layouts or even create a new one. Simply, Divi is designed for those who don’t want to code. Elegant Themes has provided ready-made templates so you can use and edit them with ease. Divi offers more than 100 layouts which can be easily loaded in the editor and do further modification.
If we build your website using Divi, and one of there themes, we will create a blank template that you can use to create additional pages and posts. You will be able to simply open a page (see all Divi Themes)
Typically, Genesis child themes are more difficult for novices to use than Divi built websites. However, if you do level up in your skills as a webmaster, you will probably prefer Genesis to Divi for the simplicity and speed. Working with a web-builder, like Divi, is great when you know very little about web design or WordPress. However, it becomes a bit monotonous once you learn to work outside of the builder model. Our designers, by far, prefer to use the Genesis framework when given the choice. (see all Theme Frameworks)
+ Do you only create WordPress websites?
For the most part, yes. The simple truth is: WordPress is the best solution for well over 90% of the clients that we interview. WordPress websites offer our clients the highest success rates, lowest design costs and the easiest transition into self management by far. All of the themes that you view here on North Georgia Web Design are for wordpress websites. This being said, NGAWEB is a full service design company that can do custom builds using Bootstrap, ColdFusion, Drupal, Joomla, Magento, OpenCart, PrestaShop, Shopify and CS-Cart.

+ How long will it take to get a new website?
On average, we shoot for a six to eight day turnaround, but the pace of any project is set by each client. How much input you can provide during the initial stages, your availability with feedback, how soon the content is ready – all this affects the speed of completion. The functionality needs may also play a role – more complex sites will take more time to develop.
+ Who writes the content for the site?
Usually that is you. You are the expert on your business, so it’s usually best if it comes from you. Don’t worry if you’re not a great writer, North Georgia Web is owned by a Master Librarian, who will edit anything you write to make sure you look and sound like the expert that you are.
