Got designs? We got devs.

Studio Simpatico is a boutique freelance development shop specializing in building responsive websites using WordPress as a CMS (content management system). We build themes from scratch, and aim to make the back-end (where you’ll update your site) as user-friendly as the front-end (what your users see).

“They’re professional in a way that makes for a very easy relationship. They understand what they need to do, and they get it done. They’re practiced problem solvers so, when something doesn’t work, they find out ways to do it and offer helpful solutions. It’s very proactive, which gives me peace of mind. That’s a rare quality, which is something I want to see from more of my vendors.”

Jin Kang, Founder and CEO of Lapis Brand Design
