I am a Costume Designer for Motion Pictures and TV. Jay was recommended by a very discerning friend. I called and instantly knew she was perfect for my new site. Jay and her team are knowledgeable about all aspects of website design. She skillfully guided me through the project with a keen artistic awareness...not to mention, a wicked sense of humour. Service is fast and efficient and pricing is competitive. Any phone call or email is immediately addressed. I am most happy to write this recommendation ... what are you waiting for?
