I've been working with Shannon for over a year now and wanted to give a reference because just looking at a business website can't always tell a story. (And Shannon isn't one to sing her own praises.)
Shannon is easy to work with. She is clear about her available time and gives appropriate timelines. When I've worked with others, they would say they'd get work done by a specific date and then fail to meet the deadline.
I've hired Shannon for monthly maintenance of my website, graphic design, file conversion, and general tips or training. Shegives me options. I get something like up to 5 different drafts for one price. And the pricing is always fair!
Need help? She charges me an hourly consult rate to let me ask questions and go over whatever it is I'm working on.
When there was something she couldn't do, she told me. However, that was only once.
The Busy Woman
Getting a web site up has been a long and difficult process for me.
I sort of knew what I wanted but did not know how to turn my ideas/wants, into web speak language to talk to web developers in a way that got this across to them. Or to understand what they were wanting from me when I was told to go look at sites I liked.
Shannon at Appetite for Design listened to me prattle on about things, then took that and zeroed in on exactly what I needed and I'm extremely grateful to her for that ability.
Shannon is detail oriented, creative, fast, and talented. She took my very limited direction and created a wonderful banner for me, as well as a button. She even helped me with some design aspects of my site without me even asking! She's really awesome and I know I will work with her more in the future. I highly recommend her!
