Front-End Web Developer with extensive WordPress Experience

Hello! Labas! Привет! Bonjour!

My name is Mykolas and I am a freelancer and a founding partner of a remote digital agency called Motive. My team and I, would be more than happy to help you with any of your WordPress or general web development needs. Be it custom theme design and development, small fixes to the site or general speed improvements – no project is too small or too big.

I strongly believe that clear communication between the client and freelancer is key to success. That is why I always try my best to build a longer-term working relationship, rather than looking at a gig as a one-time transaction. If that is what you are looking for as well – we are a good match!

Please check out some of my latest work:

Development of a Portfolio Site for Aaron Nevin

Aaron Nevin
I love working on websites that have an amazing design and Aaron’s portfolio is one of the latest examples of this. Turned the lovely mockups into a WordPress-based site that is crazy fast and looks great. And it’s not only my word – it received a Special Kudos award at CSS Design Awards. That’s a first (but hopefully not the last) for me!

Redesign of TINT Website

Working alongside with my designer colleague Daniel Baldwin, my responsibility was to take his mockups and turn them into a fully-functional website. Not a WordPress-based website, but still a great-looking modern marketing site for a successful startup.

Development of a Website for Estonian Volunteer Firefighters

This must have been one of the most challenging, yet fun and rewarding projects to date. The timeline was extremely tight, all the content was in Estonian (which I do not speak, unfortunately) and the previous developer abandoned the agency leaving a messy codebase. Needless to say, a few long weeks later, the day was saved and the end result looks and works great.

Development of a Website for Medivet

I was approached by my past client to build a WordPress website in a short timeframe, basing it off of a third-party theme. Knowing that achieving great results in terms of speed and customizations with a theme is not feasible, I pitched the idea of a custom theme and delivered it within the tight timeframe. A win-win situation ;)

Refactoring of Heritage LAG website

Heritage LAG
Before I laid my hands on this website, it was all broken – the business owners could not change anything on the site without running into tons of errors and the customers would have to wait up to 15 seconds for any page to load, which led to a lot of frustration and lost customers. Now, the website is completely refreshed, all the before missing features are back, it is hosted on a blazing fast WP Engine server and loads in under 3 seconds all around the world.

Mykolas is professional, prompt and consistent with his communication. As a first-time Codeable.io customer, I wasn't nervous about finding someone with development capabilities since that was something that appeared to be well vetted but knew great client service could be quite subjective. I found Mykolas to be extremely helpful during our project advising me for both my short and long-term goals. I would highly recommend his services.
