Ruth Maude was the ideal person to support me through making an unwieldy old Drupal website into an easily navigable and handsome new WordPress site.
Ruth was also very easy to work with, both in phone consultations and in email exchanges. I greatly appreciated Ruth’s quick and incisive responses to questions and her practical advice on working efficiently. Her combination of visual sense, good taste, and technical expertise was incredibly valuable–more than I expected, and just what I needed. I highly recommend Ruth as both an instructor and a consultant.

I work in the fashion industry so I needed a site that would be in-line with the industry’s standard but at the same time would reflect my personality. Ruth created the perfect custom theme for me. I took Ruth’s LearnWP workshop to learn how to manage the site myself and when I need some help she’s easily reachable. This has been a very good experience for me and I highly recommend Ruth!

I am just so thrilled with our new site that I hardly know where to begin. After spending thousands and thousands of dollars on our old site and being consistently disappointed with the results and the lengthy turn-around for updates I finally headed in a new direction for our WordPress site.
I did extensive research online and out of the multitude of firms out there, I was drawn to Dandelion Web Design due to Ruth Maude’s expansive WordPress background and services. After a phone consultation with Ruth, I knew I had finally made the right decision. Her task was far from easy, our site was partially complete in WordPress and was riddled with missing plug-ins, bad redirects, unoptimized images, incomplete text, poorly structured format, and the list goes on.
On incredibly short notice and high expectations on my part, not only did Dandelion Web Design stick handle their way through all the changes; they masterfully recreated pages and content to showcase our work in the best light possible.
In short, they are my go to for all things regarding our site and I am totally elated with the experience. Awesome job Dandelion Web Design!

The whole world of ‘content managed’ website design was a complete mystery when our committee started to create and build our new WordPress site. We knew we wanted one where we could update it ourselves but we knew we needed someone — an expert — to guide us along the way. Ruth Maude is that expert. From the moment we began, Ruth was this dynamic, vital, brilliant beacon of light. Little by little, teaching us, leading us, showing us the way towards a fully realized, absolutely beautiful website. I learned a ton, and she fielded my many, many questions with patience and grace. While she’s often busy, she’s always accessible. And when we needed her to be there at important moments, especially the week before launch, she was there 110%.
Thank you, thank you, thank you! We could not have done this without you.

The thought of setting up a web site seemed daunting as my knowledge of the internet is limited, however Ruth made everything so effortless for me. She was able to create exactly what I wanted and MORE. Ruth is very talented. She is creative and very efficient. I was lucky to find her in the sea of web designers out there. I give her my highest recommendations. A gem!
— a truly happy client, Martina Lesar
Rebuilding a website requires an experienced eye, an open mind and buckets of elbow grease, and Ruth brought all of this — and more — to the table. She struck that perfect balance between honouring my vision while pointing the way toward new possibilities that enriched the site and the experience of working with her. She is both ally and advisor, the person you want in your corner as you plant your stakes online
— Emil Sher
Building a website with Ruth was a very effective process. She first met with me to go over various items pertinent to the construction of the website. I provided her with the information needed in a few installments and once she started, it was done in a few days. I am very happy with the final product and she also taught me how to edit the site. I strongly recommend her for website design.
