    Let’s get to know you. Your style and needs are unique, that’s why you want something custom. Whether you're looking for a complete custom web package or you have your own design and need WordPress development, I can help you map out a plan and discover what you'll need for your project to become a reality and successful.

  • All hands on deck

    At this phase the overall look and feel of your project comes to light. This is where our ideas and everything we discussed gets turned into a visual Photoshop mockup representation of your website. Communication is important here in order to finalize the designs before we go full steam ahead.

  • Framework construction

    This is the development stage. Where your finalized designs along with WordPress, HTML and CSS all come together piece by piece to bring your project to life. All code is validated, search engine optimized, responsive, and supported in the latest browsers - all very important for a successful web presence!

    The much anticipated phase has arrived! This is when we get all your content added and then go through a thorough testing and review making sure everything performs to your expectations. Once that's completed and your website is successfully launched, break open your favorite rum, brew or bubbly, the voyage has begun!

Captains Wharf

Ahoy! I’m David Zupec, web designer and developer at the helm.

I thought I'd start off and introduce myself. I have over 15 years of combined website design, web development and graphic design experience that I love to share with my clients. I'm very passionate about technology and design and aim for superior quality on every project I undertake. I am constantly learning and keeping up on all things current related to design and development which I believe reflects in the work I do. All coding is standards compliant, validated and built from scratch, ensuring for easy updates and smooth functioning. I also develop in WordPress, a platform that allows me to create custom content management solutions at an affordable rate for my clients.

I'm based out of Michigan but work with clients all over the country through Skype, email and phone. Climb aboard with Sailors & Mermaids and let's discuss how I can help you on your next WordPress website.
