I contracted Chris to help my company with our social media strategy. I found him to be a very motivated and inspiring contributor with innovative ideas for our online growth and scalability. Chris is a valuable asset to any company interested in expanding their presence on the web. He was a true pleasure to work with.
I have worked with Chris on many projects over the past 2 years and it was always an enlightening experience. His creative approach to website design and user experience is exceptional. He puts a lot of thought into each project and the results are outstanding.
Chris is a true visionary and is a pleasure to work with.
Chris is could not be more enthusiastic about his work and is an excellent teacher. Not only is he extremely talented at Web Designing, but his understanding of what he does runs deep. His explanations and advice are thorough, well thought out and hands on. Chris extremely talented and incredibly personable, and I look forward to future projects together!
Chris has quickly become a key contributor in design and usability within IDG's Online Operations Group. His passion and enthusiasm for his work is engaging, and projects here have greatly benefited from his expertise.
Chris designed my logo and business card for my business New Leaf Digital (newleafdigital.com). His process was superb: he asked for my initial ideas, in particular the values and motivations behind starting my business. He produced a slew of early draft concepts, I told him which ideas I liked better than others and why, and the designs evolved iteratively until he had come up with something perfect. He did all the design but his process made it feel like a collaboration.
Besides design, I've known Chris in several professional settings, and he is one of the most creative and productive people I have known. His expertise spans design, marketing, SEO, web standards, business and product development, and all the intangible traits that make someone a pleasure to work and collaborate with.
I would highly recommend Chris for any project, and always look forward to our next collaboration.
Chris has the passion, knowledge and thought process to achieve anything he puts his mind to. His creativity and sheer force of ideas is a tremendous asset to any business or organization. He's continually found ways to combine creative marketing strategies with a passion for community. Put him in a room with anyone and he's sure to leave with both friends and business partners.
Chris's passion for the pursuit of new ideas and boundless appetite for learning are nothing short of awe-inspiring. In addition to being a talented designer & developer, Chris always has at least one interesting side project of his own going on, with several more in his back pocket. He works with care and diligence in everything he does, finding the best way to accomplish each goal. Chris is genuinely interested in people, which is one of the best traits for a user experience designer to have. To answer the question "How can we be using the internet in better ways?" Chris would be the first person I'd call.
After struggling with other web developers for some time, I called Chris about developing a site in Wordpress for me without any prior knowledge of his work. In fact I made the call after reading his ad on Craigslist.
I was initially impressed that Chris was willing to meet and discuss the project outside business hours due to an already busy schedule. Although I had difficulty articulating exactly what I was trying to accomplish, he was a patient listener and left with a good understanding of what he could do. He proceeded to get the project done within the short time frame I required, maintaining regular communication throughout. Ultimately producing quality work in a short time and at a reasonable cost. Chris differentiated himself from many others by doing this. He didn't force me to do the work for him by continually asking more complex questions, or trying to change my opinion of what I wanted. He understood that simplicity was the key, and he delivered just that.
After the site was completed, we then sat down and Chris gave me a tutorial on how to use the Wordpress dashboard and the key features that I needed to understand in order to maintain the site on my own. He was a very effective communicator and teacher, and again very patient. Chris really offers a rare combination of technical and interpersonal skills that make him a great asset to my company, and a pleasure to work with. I would recommend him without hesitation for this kind of project.
