It's been awhile since we last published a customer story. What better way to kick off our first story of the year, than to showcase one of our favourite site: http://www.sylvieadams.com/. Featuring none other than Sylvie Adams herself - a visual artist who, through Themify, was able to create a professional-looking, personalized site.
The journey to finding my dream company
Hello, I'm Sylvie Adams and I'm a visual artist based in Montreal, Canada. I do contemporary abstract paintings and in 2008, I felt the need to have my own website to present and showcase my work. Having previously worked as a designer, I put a lot of attention to details. I knew I wanted something very personal, customizable, and easily updated. But I knew nothing about websites or coding and I was basically on my own. So I started with a website builder at a hosting company. I realized pretty soon how cumbersome it was and dumped it almost right away. After some searching on the net I came upon a company which was having a theme that I liked. It was nice and had some customization, but support was lacking. And with the many updates to WordPress, plugins, and some problems using the theme, I realized that support and ease of customization were one of the most important things for someone like me, who was doing all the work by myself. Unsatisfied, I went back to searching the net, where I finally found my dream company: Themify.
Working with Themify
Working with Themify has been amazing. Not only was their support top notch, but their theme designs were excellent and keeping abreast of the latest tendencies in web design. Their excellent team went above and beyond to help me understand their themes and how to adapt them to my needs. I was able to finally put my vision of a professional-looking, personalized web site with e-commerce functionality in place. I have been with Themify for almost six years now and I have developed a fierce loyalty to them. Not only have they kept up with the quality of their support and beautiful designs but they have further developed tools like the Themify Builder, to simplify the creation of web sites. They are constantly looking to improve their products and the ease of customization is a designer's dream. Having a beautiful web site that adapts to my needs would not have been possible for me without them.
For the future, I plan to keep the Flatshop theme as I love the fact that it already has ecommerce capacities that I can use with ease, if I require it. I also plan to keep abreast of trends in web design and incorporate some of them in my site to keep it looking fresh and actual. With the ease of customizing layouts with the Builder, it actually has become fun to do.
