Aside from anything else Dan is very easy to communicate with. His efficiency and talent are accentuated by a positive reaction to any ideas I've thrown at him throughout the creative process. His thoughtful personality shines through in his work and he is always happy to make changes and additions to our site upon request. Dan has only ever been easy to work with and the whole process has been a joy. We're SO happy with our site.

12 Keith Ingham

Keith Ingham has been a photographer for many years but has never had one place in which to display his work, which is where the idea for his new site was born. Working closely with Keith, I designed and developed a minimalist showcase for his work that allows easy viewing, provides a simple user experience but does not detract from the images.

I am totally delighted with website that Dan has created for me. I found previous work by him which was exemplary and my expectations were fulfilled. A careful listener, he came back with searching questions which helped me define my needs as a client. As we progressed he responded promptly and thoughtfully to my comments; produced exactly what I wanted in the time we had agreed; gave excellent personal attention and a thoroughly professional job.

13 Caleb Churchill

Caleb knew what he wanted so we built his site to his exacting specifications. Subtle enhancements were also added to improve the flow of the site but in the end we were all happy with the finished article. Not only does the site display his images in a clean and minimalist manner, it has incorporated his blogging too.

I recommend Dan to all my associates. His fast, efficient and reliable work ethic makes business a pleasure. Coming to Dan with an idea in mind or a site that could use an easier means of updating presents no problem. The Wordpress integration employed on my site enables me full control; this is a plus to those that may not be website savvy. Thanks Dan.
