What We Do
Most websites that we build use the open-source platform WordPress, integrating premium plugins, stable code and custom design, using web standards for sites that work on the desktop and mobile.
With 10+ years working with technology and nonprofits, we provide consulting, training and planning services for communications strategies, web and technology projects, community and audience engagement.
We do graphic design not only for the web, but also for print publications like reports and promotional materials.
Patience and Fortitude is the web design and development consultancy of Christopher Wulff. A web enthusiast since the early days of Netscape, he has been designing and developing websites since 1998, developing skills and studying scripting, design, information architecture and user interaction along the way. In addition to his passion for technology, Christopher has long been committed to numerous social causes, and has worked for organizations such as 25 in 5 Network for Poverty Reduction, People for Education, Maytree, OCASI and Social Planning Toronto. These experiences, combined with a certificate in non-profit management from the Schulich School of Business, make working with technology and nonprofit changemakers Christopher's ideal partners. While most projects are handled completely in-house, Christopher also belongs to several networks of freelancers who provide quality work to support each other's clients. Like the inventor of the world wide web, Tim Berners-Lee, Christopher is a Unitarian-Universalist in training to become a minister. He lives in Toronto, ON but has worked with clients all over the world.
