About Me

I believe in simplicity, that’s why I choose WordPress.

Having started as a freelancer developer for the Xfive team (formerly XHTMLIZED) I’ve been around the market for 10 years. Having developed more than 100 websites from scratch, several WordPress plugins, I have helped many clients from all over the world with my expertise and knowledge.

In all case scenarios I believed in ease of usage and honesty between me and the client.

With that in mind, I may help you in from .psd theme development, custom plugin development, Gravity Forms, WooCommerce, WPML, Elementor, or standard WordPress troubleshooting.

Furthermore, during my career, I’ve managed to accomplish several milestones and certificates that I am proud of achieving.

Finally, I stick to a simple rule of thumb – keep it simple stupid.

Rafal Gicgier Certificates
  • Frontend Development 90% 90%
  • Backend Development 100% 100%
  • WooCommerce 70% 70%
  • Gravity Forms 80% 80%

I Recommend simple (easy to use) Hosting

As the affiliate partner, I recommend Cloudways as the hosting of choice. These guys are easy-going, helpful, and actually, the hosting is worth the price, especially for its speed. In my humble opinion obviously.

Load WordPress Sites in as fast as 37ms!


I love attention to detail and an in-depth analysis of client requirments. Asking questions, going through the details and understanding of client needs are my ways of going through the development process. Working with me usually starts with a Skype / Hangout call or a detailed and polished message exchange. Needless to say, a KISS principle is may way to go.

I believe development is a constant process

I communicate and discuss

I polish and cooperate


A clear defintion of client’s needs prior to the development is my preferred way of starting the project.


Coming up with a solid plan on the development process is my second step – let’s go through that together, deadline, budget, warranty are all clearly defined


Adjust the plan accordingly, assuring mutual understanding is a necessity here.


Building the site together is one of my personal preferences. Cooperation is a must.

This has been the largest job I did with Rafal to date. We used an external API to import vouchers into the WooCommerce shop. It was a complex task, involved lots of communication and back and forth (And testing together). Rafal was transparent in the time he needs, he worked himself into it, and together, after quite a while, we finsihed it successfully. Thank you Rafal for all the dedication and patience it took to solve this big task.

Rafal is a good communicator, works quickly and efficiently and his work is exemplary. He’s happy to take the time to explain the rational behind coding and design chooses, and he will walk the extra mile to make sure you are fully satisfied with the project. I will most definitely employ him again.
