Testimonials

“Hope came to me very highly recommended and I now fully understand why. She has been an absolute delight to work with from our initial phone conversation to her ongoing support of my website. She’s thorough, terrific at offering suggestions, detail oriented, and meets every deadline. Hope is also very understanding of the fact that I was born without an I.T. bone in my body!” ~ Todd Whitthorne

“Hope Gunston created a website for me that is fresh, original, beautiful, easily negotiable and appropriate for the subject matter. Most important, she listened to my ideas and thoughts, giving me her honest opinion. She also created my logo, of which I am equally as proud. Hope delivered when she said she would, followed through on every detail, and was extremely easy to work with. I highly recommend her to anyone who needs a mature, professional, creative, experienced, and technically savvy designer.” ~ Tenny Chonin, Owner, Suspended Animation Gallery

“Changing careers in mid-recession meant the pressure was really on to present the absolutely best image and to do it on my budget. Thousands of Web designers “out there”: Who is that person with that magical combo of creativity, resourcefulness, talent, patience, responsiveness and affordability? There really is Hope. I couldn’t be more proud of the end result. You will be too.” Stephanie Stephens, Copywriter and Journalist

“After creating my first website, I knew when it was time for a much needed update, I needed a professional.  I’d asked a few colleagues, whose sites I liked, who their designer was.  When the two whose sites I liked the best gave me Hope’s name, I knew she was the one.  She created for me a site that is clean, bright, easy to navigate, and just jumps off the screen!  I couldn’t be happier with it.  Now I not only have a new website, but also a logo and business cards, all thanks to Hope.  She was professional in every way–quick, efficient, knows her stuff.  And, she would continue to keep me posted on how much time she’d spent on my site to help me keep in check with my budget. ” ~ Heidi McIndoo, MS, RD, LDN

“Whether you’re looking to update an existing website or create a brand new look, Hope can take your web presence to a new level. With Hope as my contracted designer, I’ve created two websites from scratch. For each of them Hope provided a fresh perspective, guidance, expertise, and strong technical skills. She always went above and beyond what it took to get the job done, and she did so with humor, patience, grace and intelligence. I can’t recommend Hope highly enough!”~ Cathy Leman, Owner, NutriFit, Inc.

“Hope’s strengths are many. Where to start? Clean, crisp design, quick functionality. Everyone visiting my new site quickly issues a superlative-laden email to me. Her experience was more accurate than my optimism, when we were estimating the total project timeline. — The final factor in choosing Hope over other designers I considered, was how comfortable she made me feel. Engaging any sort of design service has the potential for disaster or at least drama. Her manner is so easy-going I felt no matter what happened in our process, she would be fun to work with. I was right about that, at least. She is also very responsive, which is hard to find these days. — She was enthusiastically recommended to me by another client of hers, and I’m grateful for it. Great design, solid functionality, timely and responsive service, competitive pricing, good humor. I recommend her without reservation.” ~Jacqueline Anne Church, Esq., The Leather District Gourmet

“Hope joined our team as a subcontractor to design websites. She is a professional who not only completely understands web design but also understands customer relations when it comes to designing websites. She knows what is needed and makes informed suggestions to deliver the best website for the client and on time. We hope to continue a long working relationship with Hope and I highly recommend her services to design your next website.” ~Tina Price owner Digital or Not

“Prior to working with Hope, we had worked with a few website folks. Hope has now made them all look second-rate as she has provided us with immediate, excellent quality of work, fabulous design ideas that are perfectly in line with our brand, rapid completion of projects and, for us perhaps the most important piece, patience with us, our questions and last-minute changes. In short, Hope is a wonderfully creative professional. In this day and age of websites and all that goes along with the challenges of positioning a business, we consider ourselves lucky to have found her. ~Jane Rockwell, Owner, See Jane Run TV Marketing

“Hope’s web skills are very impressive. Whenever we met to talk about ideas for the site, she would quickly develop a test for me to look at. When I thought things would be too complex for my site she found a way to make it happen. Hope’s game plan always exceeded my expectations. I love when things flow and Hope is the flow master.” ~ Lynwood Robinson, WF Athletics

“Hope was a true find. Coming from the art industry I worried that I would have a hard time finding someone that would be sympathetic to my vision and help guide me as well. I found Hope to be truly collaborative and thankfully an expert at her field. Not only has she guided me to business cards, logos, and offered suggestions to format, but doesn’t mind when I make silly decisions and then go back to her original concept. She let me explore and guided me the whole way. I find myself using her designs and logos over and over. In addition, her turn around was amazingly quick. I can’t thank her enough and am truly grateful for all her creative work.” ~ Lisa Keene, art director / supervisor / production artist, Walt Disney Studios Animation

“As a newbie to having a website, finding Hope was the best thing that could have happened to me. She helped me clarify what I wanted, and then created a logo, website and stationery that were even better and more “me” than I had been able to imagine. Hope is creative, responsive, prompt and a true gem in her field.”
~ Karen Collins, Owner, Karen Collins Nutrition

She is a designing STAR.” ~ Kate Geagan, President, IT Nutrition
