Initial Client Reactions

The time window between initial design delivery and client reaction can be tense for me. Thankfully I often receive comments like these:

  • The page looks FANTASTIC!!! I'm so impressed and relieved. Lets def talk tomorrow or Weds and go through everything in detail. I'm so happy...Thanks! - Beth
  • First impression: AWESOME! Slick, professional, simple but with high-end design elements. Well done. Let's build this suckah... - DSon
  • Yo Aaron this is FANTASTIC! Please call me ASAP. - Alex
  • I love where you are going with this! The front page is just along the lines I had in mind. I think you do an outstanding job of combining design, simplicity, warmth, and function. I like very much the photo you chose. I really like the curves you introduced that both remind one of the data we track and point the eye towards the tabs for seeking more information. I like the way the logo goes with the everything else. And I like very much how things have been aligned. I also really like the logo and agree we should go with the middle one. Thanks!! - Saul
  • These are awesome and client loved them. Thanks again for your great work!- Chip
  • We told you in person, but just wanted to let you know again that the design is awesome. Well done!- David

"Professionalism begets colleaguery, that spirit of mutual support and collective identity that contributes so potently to creative exchange and the sense of progress. It's my responsibility to engender this spirit by setting an amiable, stimulating, creative and professional example." - Yuri Rasovsky
