If you’ve already commissioned a graphic designer to create a .PSD mockup for your website (for example from 99Designs, a popular design contest marketplace), then PennyWebs can take that design and build it into a fully-functioning WordPress website.
This isn’t just any old PSD to WordPress service though — we work exclusively with Genesis, a premium theme framework by StudioPress.
What is Genesis?
In a nutshell, Genesis is a WordPress theme that you install into your site just like any other theme, but one which has been painstakingly engineered to be efficient, flexible, and powerfully extensible. Genesis serves as the “engine” of your website, while the appearance and functionality of the site are stored in a separate theme, known as a “child theme”.
When you order our PSD to Genesis service, what we’re essentially doing is creating that Genesis-compatible child theme based on your design.
How is it different from other WordPress themes?
The beauty of the Genesis framework is that it is reguarly updated by the StudioPress team to fix bugs, patch security holes and add new features, and because these updates are made to the framework they can safely be installed without affecting the look & feel of your website. (Without a framework and child theme, this would be impossible.) This means Genesis can keep stride with WordPress and web standards as they evolve and so will never become obsolete.
Other than that, you might not even notice that your site uses Genesis. It doesn’t alter the standard WordPress backend or functionality in any way.
- Unlimited automatic updates
- Search engine optimized code & smart design architecture
- Airtight security, adhering to WP security best practices
- Flexible per-page layout control
- Easily customizable with plugins & widgets
- Lightweight backend that won’t slow you down
PSD to Genesis projects start at $775 and increase from there based on the scope of the design and required functionality. Upon completion, we can set up and migrate the full site to your hosting, or simply send you the finished child theme and a copy of Genesis.
