Our approach

The reason our websites perform so well comes down to our guiding principles of craft and process. Our web developers are craftspeople, thinking strategically about every element of your website’s code.


Custom WordPress

Custom Development

We build on WordPress because it can flex and scale, so you won’t need another website.


Our websites are fast and responsive, so they please Google and function well on all devices.

QA Testing

We rigorously test every aspect of sites before launch, to ensure they look and function correctly.


We strive to build sites that are as usable and accessible for as many people as possible.

We seriously love WordPress

But even though WordPress is easy to use, we won’t just build your site and leave you to it. We’ll be in constant contact throughout the process, teach you how to use your new site, and stick around for post-launch support to make sure you’re taken care of.

Modular Coding

Our code systems allow your site to scale and evolve with your business without costing a fortune.

Gutenberg Blocks

Leveraging the latest and greatest, your site will use the Gutenberg block system for maximum flexibility.

Full Training

We’ll teach you how to use your new website before it launches, and you can reach out any time.

“The team at Forge and Smith were amazing to work with through the rebuild of our website. Everyone was friendly, accessible and most importantly… patient with our revisions and changes. We are so happy with the end result of our website and their continued support.”

“Our website was very old and stagnant. Forge and Smith helped us to completely re-envision our web presence and bring the functionality up to date. They were supportive and helpful throughout the entire project, offering advice and assistance when needed. Now our website is not only very attractive it is easy to maintain and navigate.”

From the time of commitment we had a pretty tight timeline to complete the project. Forge and Smith did everything they could to get the job done in time. They were prompt answered questions in a timely fashion and have the process well laid out.”
