Form married function in this classy, clean site for Anderson Landscaping. This company has built a reputation for gorgeous, expansive landscape work all around the Wenatchee Valley. With beautiful photography of many of their locations the design objective on this site was to compliment the photos and let the work speak for itself. Dark blacks and touches of color and script fonts lead to a rich, luxurious feeling that was exactly what the client wanted.
The site had two objectives: first to be a beautiful outward-facing experience for high-end customers looking for a landscaper of the highest quality. Secondly the team envisioned this site as a repository of images they could call on when selling to customers. Does a potential client want some rock work around their pool? Simply pull up the rock work gallery on the tablet you have with you and show them examples of all the beautiful projects the company has completed.
We built the system – a powerful backend gallery that could handle categorization of each photo. The Anderson team then loaded this site with hundreds of photos, meticulously tagging each one so it could easily be pulled up on demand.
In conjunction with a campaign of print ads with visually cohesive design (also done by Apt Design), Anderson Landscaping soon had the work pouring in – enough to hire more staff and be booked out for a year in advance! That’s the power of a website and marketing campaign that speak directly to the target market.
I still get compliments every other week on my site design and I think a huge reason my conversions are through the roof is because of the stellar work you did on that site. That project was by far the smoothest experience I’ve ever had with a contractor and I wouldn’t hesitate an instant to work with Brad again.
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.
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!
Brad was always extremely prompt and professional in turning around what we requested. And Apt Design brought top quality design elements and ideas to the table for our consideration.
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.
Brad provided very clear and understandable (for those of us who are tech challenged) directions on the process, explaining the steps he would take to build and design the site, as well as the input he wanted from me, and the training involved once the site was complete. Brad, who has a sharp eye for design, ran with it and produced a great site. He does good work.
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 came up with a powerful visual look and graphic design that tied together the various “chapters” in my story. What’s more, he is a pleasure to work with—a great listener and highly collaborative!
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.
It was so much fun working with Apt Design on our logos and branding. Brad listened carefully to what everyone had to say and then somehow gleaned the critical points out of that diverse input.
Brad is a guy that elevates himself to the status of “trusted advisor” and not many marketing partners understand how to do that. On top of that, I get e-mails from my staff telling me how wonderful it is to work with Brad. Brad has earned our trust and our business.
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.
Brad’s work consistently impresses. He has a great knack for designing material that both fits our mission and pushes our look to be new and fresh and innovative. Working with Brad is a delight. It is a collaborative venture that engages the creative process. His patience seems endless—in spite of how much we test it. Brad and Apt Design an ideal fit for us.
Brad was quick, efficient and completely approachable about changes. Best of all, the final layout looked phenomenal.
Working with Apt Design is like working with a genie….”Your wish is my command!” I simply had to share my vision, and, poof, just like that, it was created! Timely, detailed, and precise. It’s comforting to know that I never have to worry when working with Apt Design. They consistently come through for me, allowing me to focus my energy in other areas.
…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 have always found his creativity, professionalism, and work ethic to be outstanding. He consistently meets deadlines, and is honest and up-front as to his timeline when scheduling my projects.
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.
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.
Brad is a joy to work with. He’s a great listener. He was able to take our vision and make the reality of our design even better! He is a design professional with an understanding of what businesses need: on time, on budget and on point. He was patient with our input, prompt with our…
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.
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.
Working with Brad was one of the best decisions our organization made. He is a consummate professional and delivers a beautfiul product in a timely fashion. He strives to make the website easy to navigate, practical, and visually appealing.
