Farmhouse Table Produce is the retail front for the Community Farm Connection, a non-profit organization dedicated to supporting local farmers in North Central Washington, and to providing residents with a connection to their locally-grown, fresh produce. The organization wanted to the brand the store as fresh, bright, vibrant, and ultimately a place to get delicious fresh produce. Apt Design bridged the gap between the farmhouse and the table with a custom-illustrated, brightly-colored logo. The organization was in love at first sight.
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 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.
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 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.
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.
…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.
Brad effectively translated my half-formed ideas into a beautiful website, and he gave me lots of choices and allowed plenty of feedback. He also did a great job making the web design flexible enough to evolve with my needs.
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.
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.
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.
Since completion we have noticed increased customer usage of our website for research and enjoy additional business from these new customers. Brad comes to you from Boswells highly recommended.
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.
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.
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.
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!
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!
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 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!
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.
I had a terrific experience working with Brad. He was at all times flexible, patient, and responsive. Above all, Brad is a terrific person and working with him was a pleasure.
Brad was quick, efficient and completely approachable about changes. Best of all, the final layout looked phenomenal.
Brad is a pleasure to work with: professional and friendly every time. He continuously produces excellent work.
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
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.
