Before Graticle Design was recommended to me, I had worked with multiple web designers that were slow, disorganized, and unprofessional – and the sites they created showed it. I couldn’t even get a return call or email from one of them. What a difference working with Shawn. His process is incredibly organized and efficient, and his advice about design and flow is right on the mark. I’m thrilled with my website and I look forward to working with him for many years to come.

What can I say, working with Graticle and Shawn was an absolute pleasure. Shawn is very detail oriented, over communicates and presents all the information you need to know in a very easy to understand and view format. The way he operates is first class. We got better service and a better final product than we could have expected. Thank you Shawn!
