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.
…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.
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 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’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.
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!
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.
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 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.
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.
Brad is a pleasure to work with: professional and friendly every time. He continuously produces excellent work.
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.
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.
Working with a new designer can be overwhelming – but through Brad’s organizational systems and resources, we were able to work through various projects in record turn-around timing. Additionally, our latest posters and designs have captured the hearts and attention of the community. We increasingly receive requests such as “how can I get one of those posters?!”
Brad was quick, efficient and completely approachable about changes. Best of all, the final layout looked phenomenal.
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.
I can count on Brad. When he says he’s going to do something he gets it done. That accountability is probably one of the most important things I can have from someone I work with. Brad is certainly one of the most accountable people I’ve had on my team.
When you hire Brad you get his creative talent mixed with dependability and you end up with someone who is really great to work with.
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!
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.
…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.
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.
Brad executes a project with such ease that it really makes for an enjoyable experience. I trust Brad and would highly recommend his design solutions to anyone.
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.
He’s nailed countless designs for my clients and he gets it every single time.
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.
