"Sam was so easy to work with and flexible. He was able to take my ideas and formulate them into a cohesive brand, with its own platform. I continue to work with Sam when I have questions or need maintenance on the site. He is very organized and dedicated to his projects."

Sam has worked with us to create an outstanding website for our company and has displayed his talents, abilities, and skills to us on a continual basis through the start of our project to the launch. The dedication to his work and self-motivation as an entrepreneur have proven very profitable for our company’s top-line revenues. Because of his product knowledge and detail-oriented personality, we couldn’t have chosen a better contract employee to help our small growing business.

“Sam did some incredibly creative design work for me for both my startup Geode, and my agency Pronghorn Software. Given basic requirements with a lot of room for creativity, Sam ran with the design process. He was very organized in how he structured each phase of the design process from start to finish, and very communicative as the process progressed. I would recommend Sam to anyone looking for a freelancer for a one-time project, or ongoing design work.”
Corey Griggs — Founder of Geode.events

Sam was determined to make sure our rebrand reflected our mission, our organizational culture, and represented our story. Looking across any of our online platforms, people already know Crossroads Agapé. I couldn’t ask for more. I would recommend Sam to anyone looking for a conscientious, creative, and thoughtful designer.
