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.

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.

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!
