Frankie was excellent from beginning to end. She explained options well, was patient with our design preferences, educated us on options we didn’t know we had and carried out the project in an efficient and pleasant manner. We did screenshot through Zoom multiple times for both training and design feedback. Worked on and also taught us on the front end and backend of the store website that was created. Created tutorial videos for us to review in the future. Easy and responsive to contact. Very experienced with both web design, development, and e-commerce. We will definitely hire again for future projects. Highly recommended.
This website is for a small professional organization that I run. Going into it, I assumed that the end result would be a functional but kind-of-boring website like most such organizations seem to have. Instead, Francesca created a great working, great looking website. It really makes us look good! I’m very pleased with it. She was a pleasure to work with–responsive to what I wanted, got her work done on time, and is obviously very good at what she does.
Francesca is very knowledgeable and responsive, guiding us on planning and organizing a data-listing website. One of the things I appreciated when we talked was that Francesca never said “um…” which for me is an indicator that someone is not sure of the answer. Francesca always seemed certain of her answers, and if she didn’t know somethings, she was honest and said simply “Let me research that and get back to you with an answer.”
Working with Francesca was the best decision we could have made! She was very honest and made all the necessary recommendations to set us up for success. Communication was always very quick and clear. The website was delivered as promised and she went above and beyond with all our last minute requests and changes. Working with Francesca was extremely pleasant and we would definitely like to work with her again!
Great job on creating a fresh, modern new version of my old website. Francesca was excellent in communication, listened to my needs and produced a fantastic new website in a timely manor. She is easy to work with and very responsive. I would not hesitate to work with her again for any future projects.
Frankie was amazing to work with. I have experience with a range of devs and she was one of the most detailed and easiest to get along with. We are very happy with our end product, the training we received and all the communication along the way. Can’t wait to work together on the next site!
