About Bellingham WP

“With Bellingham WP you don’t just get a website, you get a website that delivers results.”

Rick and Melissa — 2014

Bellingham WP began as a small website design company back in 2008 under the operating title of D’Haene Design. Owner and founder Rick D’Haene recognized Bellingham’s need for a quality, honest web service provider and set to work developing a range of services to support the city.

In addition to operating D’Haene Design full-time, Rick continued to educate himself in “the ways of the web” and took a contract position as an Internet Marketing and Organic Search Optimization specialist.

Early in Rick’s professional career the very popular WordPress CMS emerged as a popular platform for client development projects and service requests. This combined well with his enjoyment of the platform’s flexibility and his love for the large and active WordPress community.

After years of becoming an experience-honed WordPress enthusiast, designer, developer, and teacher, he decided to re-brand his business from D’Haene Design to Bellingham WP and focus almost exclusively on providing WordPress services.

Rick’s unique background as a designer, developer, and internet marketing specialist makes him the perfect single point-of-contact for the web service needs of businesses. With an eye on website performance Rick begins every business project with an in-depth analysis of the client’s targeted online market. After all, if a website cannot be found by its intended audience what purpose does it serve? It is this approach and mindset that separates Bellingham WP from its competitors.
