Client Testimonials

Action Design

Consulting Services , Newton MA

Bree did a great job putting together our site.  She translated our designer’s mock-ups into pages that worked.  She made suggestions and offered options that helped us make good choices.  She helped us through the whole process of getting our redesigned site up—recommending a hosting service and an email marketing service, getting our email set up, transferring the domain.  She spent time on the phone going over edits, made changes, and added things that gave the site a professional touch.  Once the site was completed, she helped me learn how to do some of the basic maintenance.  And she did it all within her original estimate.  We look forward to continuing to work with her.

BARCC

Boston Area Rape Crisis Center, Cambridge MA

Bree has been working with me on our agency’s website since we did a complete redesign in 2008. She is great. She is incredibly responsive - I send her an e-mail and she always gets right back to me. She is innovative - always willing to add new things to our website. She is patient with me going in and entering content directly into the CMS, sometimes not in the right way. She is great to work with - never gets stressed out and always fun to work with.

BizNGO

Nonprofit Workgroup, Somerville MA

Hire this woman.

I can’t speak highly enough of Bree, who advised our scientific nonprofit with candor based on experience and an inherent desire for a polished website that suits us and our needs, and who designed with unwavering intent and dedication.

She took a complicated concept - three separate sites tied together under a parent - and accomplished what others could not:  an attractive, engaging, scalable site tying together different domains with different end-user and positioning goals. 

She listens for solutions, and delivers top value.  I’d pit her with confidence against agencies with engineers at their disposal - they don’t compare to the agility of Bree, who is smart, talented, goal-directed, and at the top of her game.

Paul Stopforth

Painter and Sculptor, Jamaica Plain MA

While teaching in the Visual and Environmental Studies Department at Harvard University a young artist and teaching assistant in the department referred me to eBree Design. After viewing the remarkable quality and degree of professionalism visible on his site I arranged to meet and talk with Bree.

On meeting Bree for the first time I was immediately impressed by her articulate presentation of her skills as a designer which included information regarding the time required to build a site, the costs involved and the ongoing relationship that would be necessary to keep the material updated. She used her computer to give me a sense of color and overall compositional and structural possibilities, and enquired with insight and curiosity into the nature and identity of my own work as an artist. I was impressed by the importance that Bree attached to having a real sense of the content and meaning of my own work and contracted with her to design my site at www.paulstopforth.com

The confidence that Bree brought to the presentation of herself certainly led me to trust her as a person who would focus her skills on providing the quality of work that I had asked for, that she would be available to deal with any additional information that I might want to be brought to the site over an extended period and that she would do so in a brief time frame after being asked to do so. All of these expectations have been met.

Over the past 4 years dealing with eBree Design on an ongoing basis has been a real pleasure and my site has led to an increased number of people interested in the viewing and purchase of my work.

Thank you Bree for your vision, insight and sheer professionalism!
Paul Stopforth, Painter and Sculptor

NECO

New England College of Optometry, Boston MA

After looking for someone versed in ExpressionEngine, I happened upon Bree in my search and I am so happy that I did! I hired Bree to help revise the templates for our website, building in more SEO, greater front-end functionality, and increased accessibility and navigation. Bree moved our website from static templates which required us to hire the original web designers to make almost any change, to more dynamic templates that specifically addressed our needs. Some of our challenges were connected to the inability to manipulate images, build forms, or change formatting. Bree built in a WYZIWYG into our templates to give us much more flexibility. Throughout the process, Bree kept me informed about the progress, the challenges, and our needs, always listening to what we wanted but making sure our decisions were wise ones. As primarily a front-end content developer, I appreciated Bree’s responsiveness to my questions and willingness to both problem solve together, help me learn more about the back-end of our website, and offer suggestions to new ways to handle issues. She worked countless hours on our project, always willing to make changes and with a sincere dedication to not only making the site the best it could be, but the way we wanted it to look and feel. I appreciate her flexibility, dedication, and knowledge and look forward to working together on our next project.

D’Ann’s Restaurant

Sports Bar Restaurant , Abington MA

I worked with Bree when we decided to update our website. My experience with her has been wonderful. She was so “easy” to work with and very professional.

Our customers have given us such positive feedback regarding the changes made on our site. Bree made so many great suggestions on how to improve the customers experience as they visit our site.  It was really all about the simple little changes.

As a restaurant manager it is important to me that we satisfy the customer and make their visit to either the restaurant or website a good experience. Bree has made this happen when they visit our site.

I will continue to use Bree for all website projects. Not only is her work great but her fees are as well. It is always a pleasure working with her.

Kathryn Lasky

Author, Cambridge MA

We asked Bree to redesign my wife Kathryn Lasky’s author website to make it more exciting and adaptable for phone and tablet users. She consulted with us, showed us several possible templates, and eventually designed a very lively website which shows off the books, and also makes it simple to post new blogs, link to Facebook, Twitter, etc. She made the structure easy for us to maintain and adapt as new books come out. Kathy’s editors and agents have heaped praise on the new site, and we think it is doing a much better job than our old site. We highly recommend Bree’s design abilities.
