Ryan Shaw

Freelance WordPress Developer

Welcome! My name is Ryan Shaw and I started Gift of Fresh Web Designs in 2014. I am based out of sunny San Diego and love building attractive, clean, and modern web pages. I provide my clients with a FRESH perspective and a consultative approach to developing their digital presence online. Whether you are an entrepreneur, small-business owner, professor, or blogger, I would love to build you a customized online solution that will strengthen your brand, and bring money back to your bottom line. Thanks for stopping by!



E-commerce has had tremendous growth over the past couple of years, and shows no signs of slowing. From Amazon to Etsy, the online marketplace has a vast array of options. Why not add E-commerce to your WordPress site and harness the potential of online selling?


The first thing we do when we are interested in a new person, place, or thing is look them up on the Web. Let me help you gain a web presence with a splash page, website, or blog. Don’t miss out on the sales and growth that comes with making your brand accessible online.


Does your website look like it was made in the heyday of MySpace? If so, it may be time for an upgrade. I can give your existing website a sexy new face-lift, and bring your current content to a new user-friendly WordPress platform. Don’t be the analog player in the digital world!


Need help developing your digital pipeline of customers? Let me help you re-engage your existing customers, and attract new ones with targeted Social Media campaigns, Email Marketing, Google Analytics, and more.


Whether you need graphic design for your Website, Pitch Deck, or a Flier for an upcoming event. I understand the importance of developing Graphics that reflect your personality and Brand.


Many people do a large portion of their web browsing on smartphones and tablets these days. That is why I build each website to adapt with fluidity to whatever screen you are on. This allows customers to connect with your brand online without compromise.
My websites not only look good, but are also built for speed. The last thing you want is your customers hitting the back button because your site took too long to load.
All browsers do not process websites the same way. So, I test your website  and ensure that it is compatible with the big 3 (Firefox,Chrome, and Safari).


I use WordPress to build my beautiful websites. It is a easy to use Content Management System that has changed the face of web design as we know. Currently it is the world’s most popular CMS and powers 25.5% of the websites you see on the web. It has an amazing community for support, and is easily scalable, so that it can grow with your business


I will manage your Web/Print project from concept to completion. You will get 1 on 1 professional creative design services from yours truly!


Start by filling out the simple online quote form about your business. Then, we will setup a phone/video conference where we can discuss your business and your ideas for the project.


Next, I will provide a quote and timeline for your project. We will not move forward until both parties agree on the vision, scope, and cost of the project. I want you to feel comfortable and confident that you are making an informed decision.


This is the stage where all the magic happens!  I will take all your feedback that was given during our brainstorming meetings and start creating your beautiful digital solution.


Lastly, we celebrate after you sign off on the final product and we print, or publish your order. Now it is time to get the word out and start adding valuing to your business by inspiring curiosity and engagement with your new digital brand!


Don’t take my word for it. Here are a few kind words from some my satisfied customers!

“What more can I say about Ryan and his diligence and execution of our website. He not only provided  great service he also made our ideas a reality. He was very patient in working with us and walked us through the design process of creating a functional website that our clients were able to use and feel comfortable with. Every time we needed to change or update our site he had a smooth and quick turn around time which is very much appreciated. You know your website design is top tier when your clients commend your designer  on the great job that he has done. I highly recommend Ryan for all of your web design needs and more. “

I approached Ryan Shaw because I needed to build a platform to promote my work as a scholar beyond the traditional academic avenues. He helped me by building a slick, attractive, and easily updated website. The website has made it easy for students, media outlets, and universities to find my work and me. Ryan is a pleasure to work with and his vision is unparalleled. He knows how to create exactly what you have in mind. I would recommend Ryan to anyone trying to push the accessibility of his or her scholarship on the web.

“We enlisted Ryan Shaw’s help with our new website right after we received our LLC. Ryan was so knowledgeable and took the time to help us through the process of purchasing our URL as well as providing content and professional advice. We showed him some websites we liked, and he mixed them all together with the business in mind and created a beautiful and efficient website. Everything worked great! He was also available afterwards to teach us how to us and update our site. Ryan is trustworthy, time-sensitive and easy to work with. We get compliments on our website all the time! Highly recommend Ryan.”
