Based in Oakland, California (San Francisco Bay Area), Poles Apart Design specializes in Front End Web Development and Design, designing and building Responsive Custom WordPress Themes and Modern Responsive Custom Websites for small businesses, design agencies, funded startups and well-funded nonprofits anywhere in the world.


Kemi OyesikuMy name is Kemi Oyesiku. I am a Front-End Website Developer and Designer with an understanding of back-end technologies, User Experience (UX), User Interface (UI) and specializing in Responsive Development & Design and WordPress Custom Development & Design. I’ve been creating websites since 2006.

Before becoming a Front-End Web Developer, I worked in book publishing on the administrative side, studied Creative Writing, Film Theory, Art History in college, and Fashion Design in high school. These days I still write, appreciate art, watch films (and criticize…I mean critique them) and sew.

As a Front-End Website Developer and Designer, I’ve worked in small and large companies. I’ve worked on small projects and large projects. I’ve worked with lesser known as well as many well known domestic and global clients and agencies. I’ve worked with other talented designers, front end developers and back-end programmers/engineers.

Since 2013, however, I’ve worked as freelancer and contractor under Poles Apart Design full time specializing in designing and building Responsive Custom WordPress Themes via my HTML 4/5, CSS 2/3, JavaScript, jQuery, and PHP skill set, using modern frameworks (Foundation, bootstrap, Modernizr, Font Awesome, etc.), tools (git, grunt, etc.), creative strategy and design savvy.

I live and work in San Francisco Bay Area (though raised in New York City mostly). In addition to local opportunities, I take on projects from anywhere in the world by way of telecommunications: Skype, email, phone, basecamp, dropdbox, google hangout, carrier pigeon, etc.

I am currently only taking short-term contract, ongoing telecommute contract and freelance projects. Feel free to contact me via the contact form at the bottom of this page or LinkedIn in if you’d like to hire me for a Responsive web design and/or development project.
