Tribeca Advanced Dentistry

Tribeca Advanced Dentistry

  • CMS Wordpress
  • Responsive? Yes
  • Responsible for Design and Coding
  • Personal achievement Just like with Coast2CoastSmiles, the clients wanted to carry over the SEO work they did prior and not disturb their rankings in the search results. To do this, you have to carefully look over every line of code to make sure all of your tags are in properly. It's almost like doing surgery! They also wanted the site to load faster. With a custom theme, I was able to eliminate all the extra "stuff" most plugins and themes add in. The other challenge was working with the large navigation area. Here, the navigation on the left makes sense and responds beautifully in other devices, such as tablets and phones.
The GriffinGroup.Expert

The GriffinGroup.Expert

  • CMS Wordpress
  • Responsive? Yes
  • Responsible for Design and Coding
  • Personal achievement This is a temporary one-page site, intended to showcase Cathy's research abilities through the various books she did research for. It's also to give a hint of what's yet to come for her full website. Since Cathy has been in the industry for quite awhile, back when newspapers and magazines were a hit in journalism, I wanted to make the site feel classic, yet modern, as she brings her abilities into the modern age. Stay tuned for her full website!
Carder Stout, Depth Psychotherapist

Carder Stout, Depth Psychotherapist

  • CMS Wordpress
  • Responsive? Yes
  • Responsible for Design and Coding
  • Personal achievement Getting this designed and developed in less than a week! I love how warm and inviting this is, as to give the user, who is probably facing personal challenges, that feeling of connecting with Carder and wanting to reach out to him.
David Lipper

David Lipper

  • CMS Wordpress
  • Responsive? Yes
  • Responsible for Design and Coding
  • Personal achievement Approaching this was a little different as I'm trying to sell David, not a business. Putting his credibility and expertise front and center was the focus. Instead of thinking like a customer, I had to think like a casting director. What will they want to see? What is important to them? From there, I gave David a fresh, modern design that is user friendly and easily adaptable to any new projects he will be involved in.
Portland Holistic Dentistry

Portland Holistic Dentistry

  • CMS Wordpress
  • Responsive? Yes
  • Responsible for Design and Coding
  • Personal achievement The average person does not search for holistic dentistry, so I had to do some keyword research to find out what people were searching, to make sure people would find her business. This site came out beautiful, easy to use, and easy for Sandra to update herself!
Coast 2 Coast Smiles

Coast 2 Coast Smiles

  • CMS Wordpress
  • Responsive? Yes
  • Responsible for Design and Coding
  • Personal achievement Making every page engaging without disturbing the SEO work they had done prior. Their content is really good, but it was in large paragraphs. Users tend to avoid reading large paragraphs as their cognitive load isn't that large. Breaking up the text into bite-sized chunks helps people find what they're looking for. I also tailored their new site for mobile devices since this will be a candidate for SEO in the near future.
Truth Memorial Baptist Church

Truth Memorial Baptist Church

  • CMS Wordpress
  • Responsive? Yes

Paul Evans Build

Paul Evans Build

  • CMS Wordpress
  • Responsive? Yes
  • Responsible for Design and Coding

  • CMS Wordpress
  • Responsive? Yes
  • In collaboration with Cindy Miller
  • Responsible for Coding
  • Personal achievement They had worked with a previous company and liked the design, but didn't like how hard it was to manage, plus it wasn't responsive. I recoded it and made it 10x easier for them to update, tweaked some of the usability, and made it responsive!

About Me

Stephanie Bertha

Why hello!

I'm Stephanie Bertha, a designer and developer residing in Lehigh Valley, PA. I've been building websites for the past 13 years, making my way from the early days of building websites in Geocities (eek!) to building custom and powerful websites that drive sales.

Currently

Currently, I am working as a freelancer part-time and an entrepreneur the rest of the time. I really do love both aspects: being apart of a team and managing my own business. It's the perfect challenge!

Looking Ahead

I hope to continue developing, but you never know what will be around the corner. If you have a project that you would like to collaborate on, let's chat or talk via phone 610-737-5856 or Skype (@StephBertha). Looking forward to hearing from you!
