Anderson Landscaping

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.

Powerful selling galleries

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.

Pulling it all together

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.

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?!”

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.

Aron Branam

Fitness Director at Gold's Gyms of the Wenatchee Valley

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!

Ona Russell

Author and Speaker

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.

Roger Clute

former Executive Director of the Wenatchee Valley Visitor's Bureau

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.

Craig Larsen

former Executive Director at the Wenatchee Valley Chamber of Commerce

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.

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.

Nick Ohrn

Developer and Owner of Plugin-Developer.com

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.

Shane Pearlman

Shane Pearlman, CEO at Modern Tribe

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.

Zach Cheatham

Owner of Z-AXIS Creative

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.

Rolf Boone

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.

Marcia Janke

Brad’s design work is creative and impeccable — and best of all, he listens well and asks all the right questions, with no assumptions about his clients’ experience.

Traci Mann

Author, Professor of Psychology

Brad is an incredible designer. My book’s website is exactly what I wanted, even though I couldn’t even begin to articulate what I wanted before talking to Brad. Not only is the website wonderful, but he finished it faster than he promised, and he was great to work with. I am so glad I hired Brad for this project. I am absolutely delighted with the results.

Kelly Boyle

I would recommend him to any business that seeks to improve their image and market share. Brad is more than a service provider, he is a business partner.

Reid Peifer

Creative Director at Modern Tribe

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 is the ideal designer for a client that seeks excellence and speed without sacrificing quality.

…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.

Blair McHaney

President of The Gold's Gym Franchisee Association, Owner of Wenatchee Valley's Gold's Gyms

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.

Annette Pennington

former Executive Director of the Wenatchee Downtown Association

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.

Steve Maher

Partner at RunWenatchee.com

We’re proud of what the public experiences when they come to our Run Wenatchee website. The site is clean, well-organized and lively, and for good reason. Brad Fitzgerald took the early design concepts we had in mind and made those come to life in a singular fashion.

Jamie Howell

Author, Owner of Howell at the Moon Productions

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.

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.

Kelly Allen

Insurance Broker

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.

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!
