We worked with entrepreneur Nichole J Smith to create a custom Genesis theme for her membership website, Working With Dog.
Nichole J Smith is a commercial pet photographer, marketing consultant and dog expert who has helped build many successful pet brands and products for over 10 years. Working With Dog is a community based around providing “petpreneuers” with simple, actionable marketing strategies.
Nichole had decided to move her website over to Rainmaker, an “all-in-one” platform for building a web business, complete with membership, marketing, podcasting, and e-commerce. The platform is based on WordPress and uses Genesis Themes. Our brief was to build a custom theme to Nichole’s design.
This project involved creating a custom Genesis theme built without 3rd party plugins as Rainmaker doesn’t allow these.
Nichole provided the home page design.
WordPress development and build
We created custom WordPress queries to display the latest Podcasts and Resources.
The theme had to be submitted to Rainmaker for approval after which we added our custom HTML to the various widget areas on the home page.
The rest of the website was set up by Nichole’s resident WordPress expert, Tracey Nichols.
The result is a custom theme built to Nichole’s design, giving her total control over her Working With Dog branding.

Theme setup: Tracey Nichols, Woven Websites
Angie was responsive, straight-forward, fast and detail oriented. She built EXACTLY what was in my design with surprisingly few exceptions. I am incredibly proud of our new website and it would not have been possible without her responsiveness, speed and can-do attitude.
