Apt Design was privileged to get to work with DogEared Design on a project for one of the world’s largest Christian publishers. Apt Design provided concepts and revisions for a series of study guides written specifically for small groups. Though the publisher eventually decided on a different direction, we were excited to partner with DogEared Design on such a fulfilling project.

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.

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.

Darren Reynolds

former Owner of Caffe Mela

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.

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.
