Bonlando Creative consists of Ty Bohent—WordPress, Web Development—and Maria Berlando, editor, writer, and English instructor.
Ty has been working like mad on various projects over the past ten years and is in the process of updating his portfolio. He has website updates, including his new portfolio, coming soon.
Maria has a new website in the works we’ll link to once it’s ready. Maria is an experienced editor, writer, content specialist, and instructor who loves words and sentence structure. With years of practice in editing, copyediting, teaching, and writing—academic, web, and content writing—she creates compelling and easy-to-read writing. She also comes complete with a master’s degree in English Language and Literature.
Ty’s love for new technologies has evolved, and he’s become somewhat of a niche developer in the WordPress area.
Even though everyone can be a WP “developer” by downloading and installing a theme, they’ll use the page builder that comes with it, not touching any code and sometimes sacrificing the designer’s concept with the limitations of the theme/page builder.
When Ty develops, he starts with a blank template and codes in all the necessary components by hand so that the website’s look matches that of the designer’s. He uses custom JS and CSS to get things looking proper and usually integrates it with the Bootstrap framework, so everything is perfectly responsive. Then, he integrates each component into the CMS so that they can be reused on any page using a custom block. This makes it easy for the person doing the content editing/page building when it’s time for the client to maintain it. With custom themes, Ty finds there are too many options, and the client will almost always make the website stray away from the original concept and brand identity.
If you are a designer or a design firm looking for a developer with Ty’s particular set of skills, drop him a line, and we’ll see if we hit it off.
If you need an editor to hone your voice and tone while cleaning up your writing, so it’s error-free, easy to read, and engaging, get in touch with Maria at firstname.lastname@example.org
