Thesis Designer Profile – Customization & Experience

My first love and primary area of expertise lies in style sheets. I feel right at home in the custom CSS and PHP functions files that Thesis uses for hooks and formatting.

Naturally, for CSS to be useful beyond a tutorial level, I’m also extremely familiar with XHTML and am increasingly pushing the boundaries of PHP and the Thesis hooks and custom functions. I can implement JavaScript, jQuery flavours in particular, as needed.

As a Thesis Designer, I seek creative and elegantly semantic methods to solve the questions of client web site aesthetics and functionality.

The Thesis Designer Peer Group Reviews Kristarella Studios…

The framework nature of Thesis fits Kristarella perfectly. Like the Thesis theme itself, Kris intuitively separates form and function, content and presentation layers.

Mastery of CSS enables her to create visually stunning, extensible, and modern designs with a clean, vibrant appeal. The client value proposition and key elements of the design focus put a lever under the flexibility of the Thesis theme, increasing visitor page-view averages and time on site… and of course, improved conversions!

Her tutorials on the Firebug CSS plug-in and various Thesis-specific topics have made Kristarella one of the most respected names in the Thesis Designer group. Clients openly rave about their custom blog designs.

I am glad I am the first to comment about how great it has been working with Kris. We are on opposite sides of the planet and yet it feels like she is sitting next to me…she is able to respond and get the ideas I have in my head out and on to the blog design seamlessly.

I give her two thumbs way up…I would do more but I only have two thumbs 🙂
