Certainly one of the most fun sites I’ve ever worked on, Adventure Wenatchee caters to those wanting to get involved in outdoor recreation right outside my hometown of Wenatchee. With gorgeous photos to set off a variety of in-depth content this site took local visitor information to the next level. I also got to team up with one of my favorite clients and one of my favorite developers for a truly exceptional project we all loved working on.
Brad’s design sense is outstanding. I can communicate a concept and leave it up to him to come up with a beautiful, balanced, and rich interpretation of our ideas. It’s nice to have a few thoughts, and just say go.. and be amazed by what he creates.
The design work is flawless, the content is accurate and always within the project budget. He is consistently able to be reached, is open to questions and comment, and each project has been completed on time.
Brad’s creative insight is easily accessible through constant communication and feedback. He’s concerned about your vision, and it shows in the final product. He has a consistent devotion to making your vision a reality.
As an author, I wanted something that would showcase my books, but do so by telling a kind of story. And that is exactly what Brad accomplished. The finished product is beautiful, evocative and efficient, just like a great novel.
Communicating design concepts can be tricky, so when you find somebody who can consistently understand your abstract needs and ideas and translate them into creative designs that actually work, you latch on to them. That’s why I latched on to Brad at Apt Design at the very beginning and have stayed with him ever since.
The quality of his work and his professionalism (think pragmatic time management, setting expectations) are superb. He’s a seasoned freelancer and that means good things if you’re a client of a collaborator.
The thing that I have always appreciated about Brad is his timeliness in turning around great new designs even in the face of looming deadlines. Creativity is at the heart of good design and Brad is blessed with an abundance of creative DNA. Brad’s professional, straightforward and timely approach to design creation and implementation will make your life easier.
I have not known of anyone that has worked with him on a project that has not been 100% pleased with the end product but also with the process.
He is very easy to work with and very reliable. He is always willing to come up with some great ideas and to educate us to do some some things on our own to save us money which is greatly appreciated!
After scouring dozens of author websites I contacted Brad – because his designs are clean and tight, and he is easy to work with. From inspecting his initial concept drafts, it was clear that selecting Brad was the right move.
I really can’t recommend Brad highly enough. He’s come through for us time after time, and always delivers outstanding work. His sites are beautiful and functional works of art. Brad has designed the websites for some of our biggest authors. You know he’ll deliver an amazing site, right on schedule.
It was a pleasure to work with Brad at Apt Design. On the design front, his concepts were spot on, so we never got started on false trails. And he easily and accurately incorporated my feedback in a comfortable back-and-forth dialogue that resulted in a strong final product. I remain extremely pleased with the result.
He has solid ideas and is willing to listen, which in turn makes him an extremely effective communicator. His ability to organize the creative and administrative side of his business sets Brad even further apart from anyone
…artistic intuition that can’t be learned, keen insight into what a project needs, the people skills to lead the creative process, the organizational skills to manage the whole undertaking, and the work ethic to get the job done when and how it should be.
I love working with Brad! His eye for detail is what really differentiates him from other designers. When I work on a project with Brad, I always know that the finished product is going to be stellar.
Brad was excellent to work with! He was creative, utilized broad input and was very quick to turn around deliverables. I would highly recommend Brad and Apt Design.
When it came time to design my website choosing Apt design was the best decision I could have made. Apt Design is always on time with all projects and the quality of work is second to none.
…finding Brad was the answer. He listened, researched, welcomed honest responses to drafts, adapted, educated us, stayed on deadline and delivered a first-rate creative website that continues to draw rave reviews.
His ability to grasp an organization’s goals and translate them into images is pitch-perfect. With his upbeat attitude and timely delivery, he is a real pleasure to work with.
Brad always seems to find new and exciting ways to convert ideas and client direction into beautiful and unique website designs. The quality of his work, turnaround time, and attention to detail are all top-notch.
What I love about Brad is that he can capture the vision of what I am wanting designed and make it even better than I imagined. To top it all off, Brad is just a really nice guy and he’s easy to work with!
His design work and attention to detail is impeccable. He’s also pushed me, and our team to become better designers. When I look at finished work from Brad – I don’t see his face all over it. It’s not about him – it’s about the design. When I look at a finished project and see a happy client, happy budget and happy timeline – well Brad’s face is all over that.
Brad made the process of developing my web site not only painless, but positively enjoyable. His enthusiastic, “can-do” attitude permeated every discussion we had. I would recommend him to any writer looking to develop a web site!
I have seen Brad’s web design work on two separate and very different projects. I was impressed on each occasion with the time he took to really understand what the customer wants and needs from each project, leading to a great website both times.
