Graticle came though and blew away our competition.

Shawn at Graticle Design has been great to work with. Our Professional Services firm needed some critical sales material for a multi-million dollar proposal and Graticle came though and blew away our competition. We are going to be using Graticle again for our ongoing website design and high-end graphic needs.

My client work allows me to deliver amazing work every time!

As a Marketing Consultant, my business depends on reliable freelancers that I can call on when needed. Having Shawn as my lead designer and developer for all of my client work allows me to deliver amazing work every time!

I have him do all the design for my own needs, even though I have numerous other designers I work with as I love his style and “can-do” attitude.

All of my clients love working with him after my projects are done, too.

You’ll be hard pressed to find a designer that has his skills and his responsiveness, which make him a big value to any team!

Requests are handled fast and efficiently.

We have been a Graticle client for years. They consistently do very good work for us. I appreciate that they provide me with personal attention. Requests are handled fast and efficiently. Pricing is very fair. Great company!

Each and every design is special, unique and ultimately profitable for us.

We have used Shawn at Graticle Design on several web design projects and have always been extremely pleased with the end results. One of the fantastic things about working with Shawn is that he asks all the right question about our company, product and our customer base. Then, from these very insightful conversations, he is able to rapidly create a design that always feels fresh and new, as well as being something that completely envelops all of our needs.

Every time we work with Shawn, he exceeds our expectations. This is saying a lot because after working on several projects with him, we have very high expectations of his ability to make each and every design special, unique and ultimately profitable for us.

Help me make a bigger impact on the world.

I’ve worked with Graticle Design on several projects and I have nothing negative to say. Shawn and his team do a remarkable job on both design and project management, and I’ll continue using them for the long term. In addition, Shawn has saved my backside several times when my site has been hacked – probably saving me thousands in lost dollars and hundreds of hours of lost time. I appreciate how Shawn takes a personal interest in everything I do, wanting to fully understand my businesses and seeks to not just “to a task” but help me make a bigger impact on the world.

Responded quickly to our questions and requests.

We’ve had an excellent experience with Graticle. Not only did Shawn craft a beautiful website, but he responded quickly to our questions and requests. In fact, we were so pleased with the job he did, we hired him for another website project before finalizing the first.

Graticle Design built our non-profit a professional looking, functional and modern website for an attractive price! Thank you Graticle Design for partnering with us on this project which was made more complicated by Covid and all the limitations that brought.

Amazing people.

For the last 4 years I have worked with Graticle Design. They are amazing people who know the best for their work. They also use their time wisely and couldn’t have done it without Graticle Design crew. I would highly recommend and would still be working with them!

The whole process was easy.

I totally enjoyed working with Shawn in building my website! He listened to everything I wanted and from the first mock up I could tell I would love it. The whole process was easy and left me with a website I can easily manage on my own. Very much recommend!

Designed three websites.

Shawn has designed three websites for our local businesses: Little Island Creamery, The Venue at Little Island Creamery and Little Island Kitchen & Meeting Rooms. Shawn’s enthusiasm and expertise is what kept us coming back to him for our designs. Each site positively reflects the unique personality of the business.

Superb communication.

Couldn’t recommend Shawn and Graticle more for your website services. Through easy to understand short videos, design, and superb communication you really cannot ask for better. I am the owner of a boutique law firm in NYC who needed a complete revamp for my website from scratch with no real time to devote to it. Shawn stayed on top of it, made changes as soon as I sent them over, and had the patience to deal with my lack of speed! He also recommended some great copy-writing, so do not be afraid to ask. Thank you Shawn and Graticle!

Wealth of knowledge about how to visually and verbally guide site visitors through a sales funnel.

We recently hired Graticle to design our new website, which is optimized for content marketing. Shawn not only is a terrific digital design talent, he also has a wealth of knowledge about how to visually and verbally guide site visitors through a sales funnel. He carefully planned every design element to deliver a powerful call to action, and helped us edit our content to avoid leading users in the wrong direction. Shawn also is one of the most efficient, pleasant and professional designers we’ve ever worked with. He delivered everything in an orderly way, communicated frequently throughout the process, and rapidly adopted our project management system. He delivered great work on time and on budget. Graticle is truly one of the best web companies we’ve ever worked with. Highly recommended.

Top notch professional service and progressive designs.

We were thrilled to work with Graticle Design for both our branded logo for the City of Longview as well as for our special event – Swim Dash Splash Triathlon. Shawn was very easy to work with, quick response time, listened to our wants, and created exactly what we were looking for. Top notch professional service and progressive designs that will stand the test of time.

I had no idea that web stuff could be this easy from a business owner perspective.

I work with Shawn and his team on web design and maintenance. I had no idea that web stuff could be this easy from a business owner perspective – they take care of everything! Previously I was involved monthly in dealing with breakdowns and flaws. Not anymore – they diagnosed and fixed the foundational issues with my site, and keep it running smoothly despite the inevitable updates and plugin conflicts. Recently I messed up the site myself and Shawn and his team fixed it ASAP even though it was my fault. All this for way less than I was paying previously! Can’t recommend them strongly enough.

Meets deadlines on time.

Shawn is a delight to work with. He meets deadlines on time and always gives a heads up when he foresees that there may be delay.

Shawn has a strong design aesthetic and was easily able to convey a fresh and modern portrayal of our brand in all of the pieces that he has worked on.

Best of all, I love that I can go to him for advice on a project that I haven’t found a solution for yet. Shawn makes a great teammate to brainstorm a solution—one that will work for your business—and design goals.

Graticle is the best in designing amazing websites that clearly communicate who you are and what you do. Their attention to every detail and helpful suggestions made our site build a real treat. In addition to their professionalism, Graticle has phenomenal customer service. Their approach is unmatched and the result is beyond expectation. We are excited about all the work Graticle has done for us and sincerely recommend their work!

I am very pleased with the site that was delivered and look forward to working.

Graticle Design was a pleasure to work with. Very creative design of my WordPress site and very responsive to my last-minute requests for modifications and adjustments. Very quick turnaround from start to finish and excellent quality. And gave me the training to be able to maintain the site myself going forward. I am very pleased with the site that was delivered and look forward to working with the company again soon on new projects.

Process is incredibly organized and efficient.

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.

Detailed-oriented, customer-focused, timely and talented.

We recently hired Graticle to design and program our client’s new WordPress website. He did a wonderful job. The site is not only stunning to look at, it also operates beautifully. We enjoyed working with Shawn and we plan on using his services in the future. If you are looking for a designer/programmer that is detailed-oriented, customer-focused, timely and talented – Shawn is your guy.

Informative and creative website that has brought us business.

Shawn was very organized and delivered everything he needed to on time. When he made videos to help understand how the website would function and how to update it, it was very helpful. He was always responsive to e-mails and eager to share his knowledge of website design to give his input and help me as a project manager understand his thought process. In the end, he helped to create a very professional, usable, informative and creative website that has brought us business and we are very happy with it.

Cordial, friendly, and care about their customers.

My experience with Graticle has been excellent. They are incredibly intuitive and seem to get exactly what we are looking for. They ask the right questions and return excellent work with very few drafts needed.

Among many projects, we hired Graticle to redo our company website. They presented us with an amazing site that was clean and very simple to use. They learned about our product and developed a site that our customers enjoy using.

They also redesigned our sales page which increased our conversion rate almost immediately. Again, focusing on prospective buyer experience.

They are cordial, friendly, and care about their customers. It is a pleasure working with Graticle and we have recommended their services to other companies.

A very positive and rewarding company to work.

I highly recommend choosing Graticle for any of your graphic design needs. I worked with Shawn on designing the album artwork for an upcoming CD my band is releasing. Shawn has been a pleasure to work with. Professional, timely, creative and produces a very high quality final product. Shawn is highly skilled in many computer design programs and knowledgeable about technical design aspects that helped make this project flow smoothly. Graticle has been a very positive and rewarding company to work with and I would use Shawn again for other projects as well as recommend him highly to my friends.

I would feel good referring Graticle.

I worked with Shawn on my company’s website and he was very helpful and generous with his knowledge and time. He was responsive when I had issues or questions. The input he provided on concepts and trends that make some sites better or more visible than others was great as well. I would feel good referring Graticle to others and was pleased with the services they provided to us.

We absolutely loved how our website turned out.

I’m not sure what I would do without Graticle! This is my 2nd time working with Shawn and this time around he helped us create a new more efficient and visually pleasing website. Our website was part of his new Pre-Built Package, which I recommend for any small business, with a small budget but still in need of a professional looking website. We absolutely loved how our website turned out: the design, color, images, details, everything! Shawn made the whole design process very easy with his video explanations, and his design suggestions for our website have made all the difference. Best part was Shawn added a “Contact Us” feature on every page which we have already seen great results with, and we’ve only been live for a week or so. In the midst, of designing our website I also had Shawn create e-mail signatures for our team and as well as fix up our Facebook Cover/Profile Images, all this has helped us create a more professional and streamlined image across the web. Thanks again, Shawn!

True professionals.

The people at Graticle are true professionals. They listen to what you want and need and run with it. Their designs surpassed my expectations and really enhanced the sales for the event we were hosting. The pricing for their services was very, very reasonable. For any and all of my future design and web design needs I will, no doubt, use Graticle!

Our website is now controlled in-house.

Graticle designed the website for the company that I work for, and it turned out so amazing! Shawn was extremely understanding and helpful, walked me through problems (on my end, not his), provided solutions, and was always available to me if I had any questions. The whole process was very straightforward from wireframing to designing to WordPress. Shawn also recorded training videos to help me (and other associates) understand how to control nearly every aspect of our site from within the dashboard. Our website is now controlled in-house, and we have a beautiful mobile-friendly website that is already seeing more traffic!

Graticle is a great company, and more importantly, Shawn is a great guy! I would recommend Graticle to anyone considering website or design services!!!

Listens and produces.

Shawn, was the second designer I hired and the experience with him was like night and day. Shawn listens and produces. Such as easy process. He is highly organized, does what he says, keeps you informed of the process through an easy app – Basecamp, he creates reasonable deadlines and adheres to them. Honestly can’t say enough…oh and I LOVE my logo!

I really can’t fully express how great my experience was.

I really can’t fully express how great my experience was working with Shawn and Graticle. I work for a non-profit and our website had fallen into disrepair–we had even lost ownership of our domain name! But Shawn went above and beyond and walked me through the process of getting our domain name back, along with the complete design of the new site. I absolutely LOVED that he developed videos that walked us through the process of managing the website–from logging in, to editing photos, to changing content–he covered all the bases we needed to take care of our new site. This was particularly appreciated because, as a non-profit, we will likely be moving through web managers over the years and having these videos to pass on to each new manager will be an incredible relief, and will (hopefully) help us avoid the trap we fell into with our last site. He is the most responsible businessman I’ve ever worked with, he was extremely prompt in his replies to emails, and I never felt like he left us hanging or confused at any step along the way. I recommend his services with full marks! You won’t regret it!

Graticle has been the perfect combination.

Graticle has been an Amazing source in everything with Website and Design Related material and more. I ask a lot of questions and receive answers promptly, and Shawn takes the time to explain stuff when I want to understand more.

Our Website is on Track to be a Great source for our customers to explore our product and get answers in our Market. Shawn has been there to help me when figuring out what direction is best suited for the situation, there are lots of options out there and having a knowledgeable person in your Endeavor is Key.

Graticle has been the perfect combination of Price/TimeLine/Outcome of Product, I Recommend Exploring Graticle if you are looking for a Source with Websites and Design!

Business with integrity.

After moving my business from Longview to Ridgefield I needed help to gain presence for my site in my new service area without rocking the google boat. Although he probably could’ve made several suggestions that would have cost me, instead, he offered advice on things I could do on my own. After my interactions with Shawn I believe he does business with integrity and looks out for the best interest of his clients and their individual needs. Thanks Shawn! I hope to work with you in the future!

Wonderful things to say.

Where would I be without the Graticle Design team?! Probably using a Wix website building hosted by Go Daddy, and no doubt it would disorganized and incoherent. The complete opposite of what it is with Shawn and his team taking care of me!

Shawn has been amazing to work with from the very first day that we started working on the site. He asked me very intentional, thoughtful questions to help elicit what it was that I wanted from the website and offered suggestions all along the way while not steering me where he might want me to go.

His years of experience show as he masterfully creates the website out of thin air. Okay, I admit that last part isn’t true…we are relatively close to sea level and I am pretty sure it was not humid that day. Now back to the accolades of Graticle Design!

Shawn was able to help me create a website that was not only functional but easy to navigate for the user. When I wanted certain features he was able to help me do it quickly and was very quick to respond. I have never felt like I was just another paycheck to him, but that he appreciated me and that I was valued.

Graticle even has someone manning their phone lines 24 hours a day so that you never have to leave a voicemail. You actually get to speak with someone who lives here in America and is not difficult to understand. This is a feature that is very important to me.

I have nothing but wonderful things to say about this company. If you are in the market for a new website or want to give your existing site a few tweaks or a complete makeover you should not hesitate to give Shawn and Graticle Design your business!

Easy to work with.

Needed someone with WordPress skills to update a custom website with a ton of plug ins after originator left us high and dry. Found Graticle via WordPress search on Google. Shawn had it updated and running great in a short time. No problems, easy to work with and reasonable priced.

Easy to reach by phone or email.

I have worked with Shawn at Graticle for three years, which should speak volumes in and of itself. I am a high school teacher and serve as the Coordinator for the AVID program. Each August-September we create new t-shirts for distribution to all 140 of our students, along with supportive members of the faculty, staff, and administration.

My team of AVID teachers brainstorms ideas for both the front and back of the shirt, and I present the best one or two concepts to Shawn for his expert feedback. We quickly settle on the best design idea and colors, and then Shawn and I bounce more detailed suggestions off each other for a few days. His suggestions always result in significant improvements to my rough concept. He presents me with graphic “rough drafts” at each stage of our discussion until we have a design I’m really happy with.

Shawn then works his magic, and the final design is the work of a consummate professional. We get tons of compliments on our shirts, starting with our t-shirt printer, and usually end up having to do a second print run for additional faculty and staff who want one of the shirts. This year, a middle school in Southern California saw the design and asked if they could use it.

Another positive aspect of working with Graticle is that Shawn is easy to reach by phone or email, and he is very responsive. I hear back from him either the same day or the next day.

Working with Shawn and Graticle has been a pleasure, He produces good work quickly and at a fair price. I recommend him to you without reservation.

Asked all the right questions.

I have worked with Shawn on multiple Web design projects and all I have to say is, he is the best person I have ever partnered with.

I own a marketing firm and when I have a client that needs an awesome website, I will only use Shawn as my designer and development guy.

He asked all the right questions, and his process for building sites is better than anyone’s I’ve seen.

Just hire him. That’s it.

Lived up to the reviews.

After reading Shawn’s excellent reviews we hired him to create our improved logos that will be going on our nationwide marketing campaign and new mega site. He definitely lived up to his reviews. Not only did he ask all the right questions, his prices were fair, he had excellent -unprompted communication (which is refreshing) and even sent tutorials for downloading his files properly. We got a BOOM for our buck and would gladly use his services again!

Reliably completing projects on time without the need for constant babysitting.

As a small but busy marketing agency, reliable subcontractors are absolutely critical to the survival of my business. Shawn clearly solves a problem that is common in this industry by reliably completing projects on time without the need for constant babysitting. Shawn comes through on every occasion and is one of the few graphic designers that lives up to my high standards.

It has been a real pleasure working with Shawn at Graticle Design. He has a real talent for helping clients develop a website that reflects their product, as well as their own personal vision. Throughout the process he uses videos to help his clients understand how their website will work. And most important, he is always open to ideas and suggestions to ensure that their individual needs are met. Without reservation, I would recommend Graticle to friends and colleagues who are seeking a website designer.

They always go above and beyond what you expect.

Our school has worked with Graticle and Shawn for years now and without fail the service has been outstanding. Every request, small or large, gets an almost instant and clear response. Follow up questions are handled quickly and all the information is easy to follow – screenshots and videos are often used to talk you through the process. Alternatively, the issue is just sorted out instantly at their end. They always go above and beyond what you expect. No hesitation in recommending these guys without reservation!

Our web site update was just completed by Graticle Design and they did a terrific job. Our engineering company provides a unique service and Shawn captured the essence of our company.

Expertise to create meaningful results.

Love working with Shawn at Graticle. He is the consummate professional and not afraid to speak up with certainty around how to maximize his talent regarding how his graphics will have the most impact on our marketing and branding efforts. In my mind, this is critical. I am not just paying for someone to create what I want, but rather the value of their knowledge and expertise to create meaningful results. On top of that, his work is outstanding. I look forward to a long, fruitful partnership. Thank you Shawn and Graticle.

They responded quickly, asked the right questions, advised on the best options.

Our business was changing and we needed a new, customized and customizable website with shopping cart. However, we had very little time to research, develop, and launch it. Fortunately, we chose to hire Graticle Designs. They responded quickly, asked the right questions, advised on the best options, collaborated and worked tirelessly to meet deadlines, and delivered an excellent solution for our small business.

I feel extremely fortunate to have found Graticle Design.

I highly recommend Shawn and Graticle Design!!! I reached out to Shawn after I read a review of Graticle that basically stated what I will reiterate here – Shawn actually delivers! If you have grown weary of trying to find a knowledgeable web designer who listens to your needs, and follows through on promises to build according to your vision, look no further! I searched the internet to find web design help, and only seemed to find disappointment. The first designer I contacted charged me $100 for an hour-long chat, and then fell completely out of communication. The second designer I spoke with was always too busy to get started on my project. Then, I went through a string of references from well-meaning friends, you know, the “I have a coworker whose nephew knows how to build websites” sorts.

Shawn listens patiently to understand what you want, and he is conscientious about keeping in communication. His rates are very reasonable, especially when one understands that Graticle operates in a highly dependable manner (hint: do your research, and set a budget so that you know what you can afford).

I feel extremely fortunate to have found Graticle Design, and will gladly repeat its praises to anyone who will listen.

We would highly recommend Graticle for your website needs!

The Friends of the Ridgefield National Wildlife Refuge are so thankful to Graticle Design for their amazing work! They re-vamped and updated our website in the time promised, and made it so user-friendly! It is so easy now to go in and edit, change and move things around compared to before. The user options are exponentially better than before, with easy add and use boxes, places to enter information while editing that will show up in multiple places throughout the website; and, my favorite part, easily editable and accessible buttons that can be added to every new webpage module. This makes linking people to important information, other pages on the website, other websites, and to our own uploaded content a breeze!

Shawn and his team made our site more mobile friendly (more as in, now it is mobile friendly!) and the video tutorials that were created to walk us through adding content to our new website are so clear and easy to follow, we had our new website filled with content and up and running in just a week, once the Graticle team finished creating it.

We would highly recommend Graticle for your website needs! Affordable and unbeatable quality and support.

They answered all our questions and gave us advice along the way.

We recently had Graticle Design build our website for our non profit organization. Shawn and Matt were GREAT to work with. They made the process easy and they completed the project quickly. They answered all our questions and gave us advice along the way. They have been readily available for follow up questions now that the website is live. We will definitely be using them in the future! We absolutely recommend Graticle Design!!

Professionalism, knowledge and customer service.

We had Shawn with Graticle, Inc. take our old website and make it mobile and do other enhancements that make is so much easier to use.

We are very happy with his professionalism, knowledge and customer service. Not planning to go anywhere else!

A++ customer service.

Graticle Design has been a life saver for my company AGL Publishing. I initially developed the website, but as time has passed and technology has evolved, I realized I needed someone who could keep up with those tech challenges and changes. Being a book publisher, I am always looking for new ways to create unique advertising and marketing options, as well as meet the needs of my authors. Shawn has been there to help me at each stage of change. I come up with the ideas and he implements them. He is also my “calm in the midst of the storm” when my website is hacked, or my merchant account decides to create updates! To sum it up in a few words… A++ Customer service!

Delivers as promised.

I have been working with Shawn for several months. In my past life, I have worked with a variety of developers, so have some experience with this profession. I find that Shawn relates well to the needs of normal human beings who have a vision, but just want technical solutions. He communicates well, has reasonable prices, and delivers as promised. What more can you ask for.

Prompt, professional, and knocks it out of the park with quality.

What else is there to say besides “Have you called Shawn with Graticle yet?” After having seen his work portfolio and again having seen his submissions for another project with which I’m involved, I knew his abilities. In the fall of 2016, I engaged Graticle to re-design & re-brand a logo for a local Little League charter with which I’m affiliated. I have him some design elements and he came back with the product we now use to identify our league and our brand! Could not be happier!

He’s prompt, professional, and knocks it out of the park with quality. Do yourself a favor: pick up the phone or start up your computer, then contact Graticle to get your brand moving in an energetic, highly-functional, and professional direction. You won’t regret it!

Great service and response time. We set up an appointment for some company branding and I was asked some very specific questions and we went over some images, they created a perfect design and a quick turnaround. Graticle is definitely who we will use for all of our design and I will recommend them to anyone needing their service.

Exceeded my expectations.

The BEST graphic artist I have worked with in the past 20 years. Found him (surprisingly) on Craigslist. Extremely fast, affordable, and the best quality of work I’ve ever received. He very carefully listened to my ideas and produced graphics exactly reflecting my vision. Shawn’s work exceeded my expectations. His quality of work was also complimented by the printing company who usually reserves comments.

I love that it is mobile-friendly and formats great on the phone.

Wow, what can I say?

Working with Shawn and the team at Graticle has made launching our website not only easy and stress-free, but fun! Our website looks wonderful, it looks beautiful and clean and is easy to for clients to navigate and order products. I love that it is mobile friendly and formats great on the phone. They really took the extra steps to make sure it came out exactly how we wanted and even made videos explaining step by step and page by page how to change or add to the website including changing text and images, adding products, etc. Shawn has made this a wonderful experience and helped create a great site that accurately represents our business. Not only will I recommend Graticle to other companies but also plan on having them do more work for us in the future.

Hi Shawn,

Thank you for all of the outstanding work you’ve done for me! As my business grows I will be adding more pages and content.

I have enclosed a few of the business cards that you have designed for me. Everyone who sees them loves the new look of “A-Miller Deposition Services”!

Look like a million bucks.

Graticle Design has built my last two websites. My web designer Shawn did a fantastic job. The newest version of my website looks like I spent way more on it than it ended up costing. If you want to look like a million bucks for a very competitive rate, I suggest using Graticle Design.

100% recommend Graticle to other business owners.

We absolutely loved working with Shawn on our business cards and would 100% recommend Graticle to other business owners! Our business cards turned out even better than we could have imagined, which is amazing because we really had no idea what we wanted and gave Shawn very little to work off of, but he made it happen! Communication and customer service were top notch. Shawn answered all our questions and he even recorded a video explaining his design process, which is something we’ve never experienced with other designers. Graticle has been one of the most professional businesses we’ve ever worked with and we look forward to working with them in the future. Thanks Shawn!

Stop shopping around and use Graticle.

As a Realtor I asked Graticle to design an entire Branding Package for myself. The Logo & Brand was the first step and they knocked it out of the park. Prompt service, excellent work, and perfect listening skills.

The excellent Logo & Brand design will set the tempo for the remaining Branding Package and Graticle did it perfectly. Stop shopping around and use Graticle.

Quickly figures out the solution.

As a small but quickly growing curriculum company, it was crucial to find an organization not only to build our website but for continued development to exceed industry standards. Graticle Design has fit that bill! Shawn’s expertise, knowledge, high attention to detail, and timely completion of projects have been beyond expectation. No matter what we throw his way, Shawn quickly figures out the solution. Thank you, Shawn!

Magnificent cover that literally sells and promotes the book.

I cannot say enough about Graticle Design. I recently wrote a book called The Daily Challenge. It is a daily devotional about the ministry with orphans and widows we work with in a number of different countries. I was stumped as how to promote it or the cover style that would be on it. Shawn developed the magnificent cover that literally sells and promotes the book. I have had nothing but positive feed back on the cover and the content of the book. Thank you Shawn for your commitment to our work.

Capable and reputable organization.

Hi Shawn,

I would like to thank you for the superior service you have provided for us recently. Even though we just started working together, I am impressed with your service, knowledge and timely response to our needs. As with all technology, there is always some little things that seem to go wrong and we did not experience this on our project.

Even if you didn’t know the answers at first, you took the time to get the answers and provide us with solutions that got us up and running.

I would highly recommend Graticle to anyone looking for a capable and reputable organization to develop WordPress websites and Graphic Design. We have several other client projects on the horizon and I look forward to continue working with you in the future.

Thanks again,

Done in a timely manner.

I was very happy with your work. The work was done in a timely manner, I now have a very professional website which contains all the features and items we discussed.

Perhaps the most important part is that you took the extra step as I just found out my web site now shows up when one Google’s Abbotthouse Sunriver OR., or Abbothouse Sunriver OR., This never happened before you did my web site as I spell Abbott the correct way or the way it was originally spelled and everyone else spells it Abbot. The new abbreviated way. Anyways thanks for taking that extra step.

I have recommended you to some other people at Abbotthouse and hope you have received some extra business from my recommendation.

Thank you Graticle Design! Your team is amazing!

Let me start by saying if you choose Graticle Design for your website needs, you’ve made the right choice!

Four months ago, I started a new online business. I hired a company that I had found online, to design and build my new business website. Let’s just say, it has been a complete nightmare the past few months trying to get the work done that I needed on my site. I would email them when I needed something and sometimes get no response for days. Not to mention, the amount of time it took for them to get the work done and the high cost of their services. This situation had me extremely stressed out. I must add that I am not computer savvy. Therefore, I depended on this company for all of my website needs. Finally, after months of anxiety, frustration and utter disgust, I decided to search the web for a new website design company. I searched and interviewed many. However, I felt the most comfortable with Graticle Design. When I spoke with Shawn Hooghkirk, I felt a sense of trust and ease after our very first phone interview. Shawn actually took the time to listen and understand my concerns, expectations and everything I wanted for my website. After our first interview, I hired Graticle Design. This was the best decision for my business website and for myself as well. They are fast, efficient, reasonably priced and might I add, very skilled. I am beyond impressed with their service and I couldn’t be happier! I no longer have to stress and worry. I know that I can count on this company for all of my website needs. Most importantly, they do an incredible job!

Thank you Graticle Design! Your team is amazing!

Sincerely, Flickerfancy.com

What can I say, working with Graticle and Shawn was an absolute pleasure.

Fine tune what I had already developed.

Working with Shawn was and continues to be great. As a new business with a new website in place, Shawn was able connect some missing items and fine tune what I had already developed. He went the extra mile and put together video clips for me walking me through the process on how to utilize what he put together. It’s really brilliant and so helpful. I can access these short how to’s anytime I need a refresher.

Another great thing about Shawn is that he always responds to an email that day or the very next and works in such a timely and efficient manner. He’s definitely proven to be a great problem solver and is there to help with anything big or small.

I highly recommend Graticle Design without hesitation!
