Why are we WordPress developers? We’re glad you asked! WordPress is web software that we use for creating websites. With a market share of 60% and nearly one quarter of the top ten million websites around the world made using WordPress it is the most widely platform for making sites. The closest competitors, Drupal and Joomla, have about one tenth as many users. Quite simply WordPress is massive and can be used to make stunning websites with any required functionality. If it’s good enough for The Rolling Stones it’s good enough for us!
So why do we use WordPress to build our client websites? One of the best features of WordPress is the ease with which we can add a new function to a site using plugins. Even the design is easily changed to keep your site looking fresh using templates. Best of all WordPress is a content management system (CMS) and this means that some of the site content can be added or manipulated by our clients themselves. We could talk about WordPress all day but why not take a look at a few of the sites we have made with WordPress or ask us for a more comprehensive list.

Andrew Rodgers is highly experienced in human resource management and passionate about developing your workforce’s skills to improve job satisfaction and boost productivity. Transition Learning offer a unique training service, auditing your companies workforce to identify strengths and areas that would benefit through up-skilling your staff.
When Andrew contacted Blue Kelpie, Transition Learning was on its way to full accreditation as a Registered Training Organisation. They required a website that was clean and professional but also short and to the point. The homepage provides a solid overview of the company as well as capturing the bespoke nature of the service provided. The website shows prospective clients the courses available and acts as a portal to the online training facilities.
Mario Said at Hygiene Concepts is a client who really knows what he wants. When we first started working with Hygiene Concepts they had an outdated website that was getting lost in the millions of other sites on the web.
As one of Perth’s major players in the hygiene services industry the importance of being an environmentally responsible company cannot be overstated. The brief was to create a site that represented on every page the great responsibility the company has in caring for the environment. We photographed the staff, premises and product ranges and created a clean and vibrant website that stands out from the crowd whilst emphasising this core value throughout.
Over time trust and a positive relationship has grown between Blue Kelpie and Hygiene Concepts. It is a pleasure working with Blue Kelpie and I consider them honest, efficient and willing to go the extra mile, ensuring delivery of exactly what was promised.
Chris has expertise which span many years in the industry and this shows in the confident and professional way he conducts himself and his business. His creativity, flexibility in the many decisions we had to make on our projects and a commitment to quality exceeded our expectations.
Hygiene Concepts look forward in working with Blue Kelpie in the future and have no hesitation in recommending Chris and Blue Kelpie to any organisation.
Rhino Security are Perth’s number one distributor and installer of Prowler Proof security screens. Errol Stone is the owner of Rhino Security and takes a professional attitude to everything he does and expected nothing less of Blue Kelpie when we made his website. Errol was great to work with, giving us creative licence to develop his site as it is now.
We are proud of the way we have showcased the work quality work done by Rhino Security and the Prowler Proof range in this website. The layout of the product options tables a good demonstration of solid responsive design methodologies. Another site we are proud to have in our portfolio.

When John & Angela Wilmot contacted us back in 2011 to set up their first website it was the start of a long term working relationship that has grown stronger with each passing year. The Wilmot’s work in the Pilbara with the Martu people, and their humility and generosity of spirit are such that we were both touched and inspired. This inspiration led us to ask what we can also do to help others.
Blue Sky Pilbara is the first site that we provided our services pro bono. It’s a fantastic experience being able to offer our support to a group of people who are genuinely dedicated to helping others.

It seems there is always something in the pipeline at Blue Kelpie. Right now we’re working on a few websites that we can’t wait to show you. These include:
It has been a pleasure working with Alexander Olk and the team at Olk + Associates, an architectural firm in the Perth hills. Alex always has a clear concept in mind when he contacts us with any changes regarding his website. His attention to detail is precise as you would expect from an architect. With a wide range of projects from industrial, commercial and the resource sector to boutique homes in and around Perth.
This site was written in PHP from the ground up and has been made by closely working with Alex to help make his vision into a functional website that is clean and modern. This is the third site we have made for Olk + Associates and we look forward to continuing our professional relationship well into the future.
My working relationship with Blue Kelpie Productions has been nothing short of fantastic! Right from the start, Chris was able to share in our vision and contribute ideas. He is professional and very easy to work with and, well within the specified timeframe, delivered a website that was both attractive and functional.
Chris is extremely knowledgeable on his subject matter and always willing and able to assist with any inquiries. His professionalism and expertise made the set up so easy! I have no hesitation whatsoever in whole heartedly recommending Blue Kelpie Productions to anyone considering a high quality web presence.
