Freelance Web and WordPress Developer in Shrewsbury

Hi there, my name is Chris Dunst, and I'm available to hire as a freelance web and WordPress developer.

My core skills are front-end development and WordPress development. I create standards-compliant semantic HTML5 mark-up, styled with clean cross-browser CSS, and progressively enhanced with JavaScript/JQuery where required.

When working with WordPress, I build bespoke themes based on supplied designs, or I can modify/implement existing WordPress themes. Examples of WordPress sites completed for other agencies (which are not listed in my portfolio) include e-commerce sites, brochure sites and sites for hotels and schools, and make use of a wide range of WordPress plugins for social media integration, events, directories, video integration and more.

In addition to development work, I'm a generalist with good copywriting skills, great SEO knowledge, and an excellent understanding of the web design/development industry.

How can I help you?

I can provide any or all of the following services:
Front-end HTML/CSS templates from supplied designs
Complete WordPress builds from supplied designs
Turning a brief into a proposal and wireframes
Full bespoke non-WordPress web builds, using PHP / MySQL
Image manipulation

My experience

I have over 10 years' experience building sites and project managing in the internet industry, most recently working client-side on a year-long rebuild of, the community partner for the Virgin London Marathon. This encompassed managing the project end-to-end, leading the functional design, and managing a team of ten designers, programmers and editors.

Prior to this I have worked on both freelance projects and in-house, with experience of building many types of websites: brochure sites, ecommerce, egovernment, mobile and dot-coms. My full CV is available on request.
