Overlock Design Co. is the professional website design and development studio of me, Kyrie Tompkins-Overlock. My mission is super simple: Help small businesses cultivate growth through custom WordPress websites.
But what does that actually mean?
It means your website is a tool. And you deserve to get the most out of it.
I’ve been working online for over a decade. In that time, I’ve seen countless design trends come and go, spend hundreds of hours coding, and learned a thing or two about what makes a website successful. Hint: It’s not flashy graphics or videos. Sorry.
The key to a successful website, that helps you grow your biz, it a website built around your business’s goals. And I founded Overlock Design Co. to help everyone – from small businesses to professional agencies – build websites that help them smash those goals.
How do I do that, you ask?
Start with a solid foundation.
The first step to a successful, goal-smashing website is to build it on a rock-solid foundation, which is why all Overlock Design Co. websites are built with WordPress. Add in a mobile and SEO-friendly framework, such as the Genesis Framework, and you have a website that’s stable, but scalable, and can grow with your business.
Design with purpose.
How do you want users to interact with your website? What do you want them to do while they’re there? It’s my job to take a look at what you want your users to accomplish on your website – be it buying a product or subscribing to a podcast – and design a website that will guide them to the objective.
Maintain, Iterate, & Update
Once your website is live, we’ll look at analytics, user feedback, and your own experience to adjust and make changes, tweaking our way to a well-oiled goal-smashing machine! Regular maintenance and updates make sure your website is at the top of its game, so you can focus on what you love: running your business!
And who am I? Meet the lady behind the screen.
I’m Kyrie Tompkins-Overlock. I’m a Web Developer, a Wife, a Dog Mom, a Homeowner, and a huge nerd.
The internet and I go wwwaaayyy back. I’ve been building websites since childhood and had my first professional project at just 16. After freelancing under my own name for a few years, I founded Overlock Design Co. Since then, I’ve managed to skip the 9-5 and turn my hobby into a business that I adore.
I’m passionate about technology, always reading up on the latest tech updates. When I’m not working on websites, you’ll probably find me playing video games with my husband, playing with my dogs, doing projects around my home, or taking pictures of flowers with my handy dandy iPhone.
