THE WORDPRESS GUYS
WE (PROUDLY) CREATE AND MODIFY WORDPRESS THEMES.
WORDPRESS WEB SOLUTIONS
DESIGN, DEVELOPMENT AND A LOVE OF PLUGINS.
We are Lucid Surf, a team of freelance web designers and developers who love Wordpress. And I'm talking about an obsessive, feverish kind of love.
We build e-commerce solutions, configure plugins and routinely migrate entire sites across to Wordpress. Need a new one? Want a premium theme modified? Can't work out your Yoast from your Avada? Don't worry. We're like the ghostbusters or maybe the A-Team. We demystify the web and put our clients in control.
We use Themeforest and Elegant Themes. We're experts in Woocommerce and Avada. If you are in need of an awesome Growth Hacker (for you technology startups) we just connected you ;) Or need some content marketing strategy? Done. We've got connections.
But for now, let's talk about your future Wordpress website. We're already excited. We'll love it. And that's a promise.
If you just need a clean Wordpress installation we're happy to help. We know all the server configurations so give us access and we'll do our thing. If you like we'll video ourselves doing it. Complimentary.
Want help customising a premium theme? We do this stuff for fun. In our spare time. For no money. So we'll happily do it for you.
(For money, though)
There are currently 27,897 Wordpress Plugins. That's a freaking lot. We have tested maybe 5,000 of these and know which work well (like Yoast). The others are weird. Trust us.
Like any CMS Wordpress gets hacked and compromised if not properly configured and updated. If you suspect your site has been violated call us and we'll help plug those holes. Poor, poor site full of casino ads or Chinese writing :(
If you're migrating from Joomla, Drupal or another CMS (maybe even from a static HTML site) we can help devise a migration strategy and get you a Wordpress engine. Mmmm, that new website smell.
As long as you promise never, ever to call us your "Webmaster" we'll happily manage and support your Wordpress website on an ongoing basis. We do it for lots of happy clients.
WHY A WORDPRESS SPECIALIST?
We used to be a group of web guys, like any other group of web guys: taking on bits of work, making some custom sites, going surfing, drinking lattes, going traveling and leaving clients in the lurch when our phones were disconnected. But then we grew up into (something like) adults. And specialised. Wordpress is the leading CMS in the world for good reason. The plugins are awesome, the framework is robust and the thing is almost fun to use. What else would we do with our grown-up lives?
He who lives in harmony with Wordpress lives in harmony with the world.
The divine is not something high above us. It is in heaven, it is in earth, it is inside Wordpress.
The Wordpress is the thing.
Learn how to see. Realize that Wordpress connects to everything else.

Aus Post required an interactive application that enabled customers to register and create unique online profiles. Designed using AJAX technology and a robust database engine I created an engaging interface linked to a robust database backend.
National Australia Bank realised the importance of making content available online, accessible by all devices. As such, we developed Wordpress platforms to deliver online versions of their business print magazines. The project included content strategy, theme design, analytics and strong adherence to brand guidelines.
Australian Educators of the Year 2012 - Life by Design - contracted me to design, develop and produce a groundbreaking employee engagement platform, meCentral.com. Using a blended solution of proprietary CMS and Wordpress the system was deployed within companies including SAP, Ernst & Young, Pfizer, Johnson & Johnson (and many more).
A project with built-in viral shareability, Tick Green was conceptualised, designed and developed by our team. Within a year some of Australia's leading organisations including Qantas, Kone and several banks were proudly displaying the Tick Green logo on their websites.
Online Surf magazine Surfd.com has been proudly hosted on Wordpress for over seven years! During this time we've used countless plugins, innumerable themes and have watched the site grow froma cute blog into a leading watersports magazine.
