Orchard Platform WordPress Website

WordPress Website

A custom WordPress theme for the Orchard Platform marketing site

After working on the product design, Studio Simpatico (formerly Tamara Olson Designs) worked with the Orchard marketing and design teams to implement a beautiful, responsive WordPress website.

Launch Website

The product and marketing teams at Orchard Platform came to Studio Simpatico when they were looking to develop a new website (that their team could easily maintain) to showcase their product offerings, as well as their position as one of the top thought leaders in the financial tech industry. (Although the original site design launched in 2015, Orchard returned to Simpatico to implement a visual design refresh in 2017.)

Their internal design team delivered full design files to us. From them, we built a fully responsive WordPress theme with three different breakpoints.

The theme includes:

A homepage that features a dynamic news feed that pulls from multiple custom post types.



A research section that uses Gravity Forms to “roadblock” content.


Beautiful and engaging content product pages.


Integration with JobVite to allow Orchard a way to publicize new job openings.


A custom WordPress bookmarklet plugin that allows Orchard employees to bookmark relevant news stories. With a simple click of the button, the stories are added to the back-end as online lending news draft posts, ready to be published on the front-end of the website.

“The website works seamlessly, with no bugs or user issues reported. Studio Simpatico’s flexibility, organization, quick response times, and up-front communication make them a dependable development partner.”
