“We hired John Schnell to redesign our company's website. We described to John what we were looking for in the end product. He was very attentive and accommodating to our requests. John then took our requirements and created a very professional and captivating website that far exceeded our expectations. Our new website gives us a tool that we can count on for marketing our company to prospective clients. Thanks for all of your hard work John, and for a job well done!”
“I received an e-mail advertisement displaying several sites John had constructed. They were terrific, very dynamic and captivating. I knew immediately that I wanted my site to have the same kind of draw so I went forward with John without regret. Although, John is thousands of miles away it has been easy to communicate and share thoughts during the construction of our site. I would recommend John Schnell to anyone seeking a high quality website.”
“I am extremely pleased with the professional website that John Schnell & Associates provided me. It has increased my visibility on the web, and is very instrumental in giving my clients an idea of my capabilities as a professional decorative artist. It is my portfolio, and I have been complimented over and over on the look and ease of use.”
“John Schnell is a true artist at his work of creating and developing a website. His artistic talents are showcased as you cruise through the site with ease, grace and sophistication to a melody appropriate for the genre of the website. As an artist myself, I was looking for a certain elegance to convey my work to my viewers and I feel John has captured that perfectly. He is wonderful to work with; his patience and understanding is a welcomed relief from the normal hassles of IT (Information Technology).”
“John built a beautiful site for Spirit Walker Expeditions of Alaska. The site is visually engaging, and really shows off our company and Alaska. He took the text from our old, out-dated website, along with our pictures (and many of his own), and turned it into a really great looking site.”
“I had the great fortune of finding John Schnell to work on creating an updated website for me last summer. John was easy to work with, even from a remote location. He made the process painless, and the charge was reasonable for the site that he designed. Many of my clients and colleagues have very positive comments about my new website, which has increased my client base. I am proud to refer prospective clients to the site.”
“John has put together a beautiful site for my business. John used images and text from my files and then added music and excellent images he had taken, to blend together a web site that is both informative and captures the interest of the viewers. I have received great feedback from people who have viewed the site.”
“Initially our company had concerns about using an out-of-state website design company. However, in working with John, the distance has never been a factor with performance. John asked all the right questions, looked at every photo we sent him, and really took the time to understand us, prior to designing our site. During design, John knowledgeably advised us on the different types of sites, the advantages of each, and provided his opinion when asked. John's ideas are innovative and tailored to our needs. John has a keen eye for detail and layout. He was able to turn our ordinary jobsite photos into interesting displays. He recreated our logo into a 3D image and integrated music in to the introduction, and just recently added satellite site maps to the website. We are well pleased with his design and it's representation of our company. We would highly recommend John Schnell for his website design and photography.”
