When I began my first start-up adventure, I knew that building a full-featured e-commerce site would be challenging, but Richard made it feel easy!

First and foremost, Richard is a talented designer, who was able to hear my vision for my site and then make it a zillion times better. I could not be happier with the site, which is beautiful, clean, user-friendly and professional.
While his design skills are superb, I will hire Richard again and again because he is an excellent partner.

As a non-technical solopreneur, I needed a designer who could work with - and manage - me. He is an excellent communicator, who made sure I understood and could anticipate what was needed from me at each stage of the building process. He is also a patient and willing teacher.

Thank you, Richard! I could not have done it without you.
