This is another exciting project I worked on for Shane&Peter Inc. Zillow has an overall brand that we worked within to create a cleaner, more modern feeling style site. We also took a look at the content on the current blog and surfaced the most important features and stories, making the site more easily navigable by users.
As one of the two lead designers I was responsible for designing concepts of the site, detailing the final design, developing design direction, and working to make sure design elements stayed consistent across the entire site.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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’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.
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.
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!
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.
He’s nailed countless designs for my clients and he gets it every single time.
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!
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’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.
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.
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.
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 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.
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.
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
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.
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.
I love working with Brad! His eye for detail is what really differentiates him from other designers. When I work on a project with Brad, I always know that the finished product is going to be stellar.
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.
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.
