I want to tell you what a wonderful job you’ve done with the web design and everything. I appreciate your diligence in staying on me to get this done, your flexibility and responsiveness to my requests, your eye for design, and the quality and usability of your code. Several people have already commented on the quality of my webpage, and I fully agree with them. I will absolutely recommend you to anyone who is looking for anything web design-related in the future. Thank you very, very much.

Yellow Rubber Ball created a detailed website specific to the multifaceted needs of our business and we love it. We gave them artistic license with the look and feel of our site and we made very few changes to the original prototype. Katie was easy to work with and really took the time to understand what we wanted from the beginning. As we moved along, we requested changes and needed updates quickly, which Yellow Rubber Ball was able to handle. We continue to work with Yellow Rubber Ball as changes occur and are always pleasantly surprised with our outcomes!

I am thrilled with the website Yellow Rubber Ball designed for my restaurant. Katie was extremely professional and took the time to understand exactly what I wanted my website to convey. She was also very enthusiastic about the project which made her a pleasure to work with throughout the process!

Yellow Rubber Ball did a magnificent job with our website, and we receive compliments from many customers who visit the site. We were able to add unique features that allowed our investors and partners to keep up to date with the company. Katie was flexible for meetings, and demonstrated much patience with our numerous edits during the time our website has been online. We frequently recommend her to our associates and clients, and we will continue to work with her as our website evolves.

Katie did a superb job re-designing my blog (http://www.paroladelgiorno.com). Unsure of how I wanted my blog to look, I gave Katie some general ideas as well as a few wants and suggestions. She came up with a splendid design that was simple yet elegant as well as a design that wasn’t too busy or showy that would detract from my blog’s mission. I was really amazed at how professional and well laid-out the final product turned out, and I receive emails almost every week praising the look and feel of the site. All the users of my blog really love it, and, because of the professional look, visitors to my site have almost doubled! Katie turned my generic blog into a brand!

Katie also designed the iPhone and iPad app for my blog called PdG. Again, this was a case where I wasn’t sure what I wanted from the app, and Katie put together some great designs. Not only that, she went above and beyond to create an iPad version of the app, too! As with the blog re-design, Katie worked tirelessly to keep me in the loop and alerted me to problems and difficulties. When the app was finally published to the App Store, it was approved on the first go! My app has been selling well, feedback has been positive, and I hope to use Katie in the future to create an Android version of my app.

Working with Katie is easy, fun and worry free! She knows how to communicate and interface with her clients, open to criticism and ideas, and she lets you know when she needs more time. More importantly, she is honest in her communications and very up front when problems arise. I hope to have Yellow Rubber Ball re-design the rest of my sites and blogs over the coming year. If you’re looking for a great experience, you cannot go wrong with Yellow Rubber Ball!
