Recent Testimonials

“I just wanted to say that whatever you and your team did last year to deal with outages related to traffic spikes has been working really well. I’ve had a few very high traffic days (by my standards) lately and no problems at all with loading errors. Also, the majority of visitors are accessing the site through mobile devices, and I’m sure that would not be happening if your redesign hadn’t made the site so easy to read on a phone. I have often heard from people that they appreciate the uncluttered look.”

“Hunter is an extremely gifted thinker, artist and developer. We’ve collaborated on projects for years. He can always be counted on to be up to speed on current and emerging trends in the digital field and make just the right suggestions on how to approach a particular project for best effect. His ability to understand and appreciate aesthetics and decisions from a creative’s point of view is excellent — and rare for someone with such skill as a developer. He always has a kind word and quick wit and is a pleasure to work with.”

Julie Savasky, Associate Partner, Pentagram, April 2016
