Portrait of Michael P. Gilbert

I’m the Owner of CraftPress LLC where I design and build handcrafted websites and online stores for happy clients.

I believe the difference between a good website and a great one occurs in the last 5% of finesse work done by a craftsperson who takes pride in a high-quality product. I appreciate good clean code. I also appreciate simplicity, modularity, and attention to detail. I often take time to “view source” on a well-designed and carefully handcrafted website… just to admire how well it was constructed.

I specialize in web standards, accessibility (Section 508, WCAG), content management system theming, and mobile-first responsive web design. I develop sites using HTML5, CSS3, and JavaScript in a variety of server environments.
