It is my pleasure to recommend Merit Lee to anyone in need of expertise in web design. Merit and I worked together over the past few months to design a logo for our company, QuakeFinder, then to build the entire website.

Working with Merit was easy. We discussed the general nature of what I was looking for, then she went off and drew up a few examples, and I provided feedback on what I liked and didn’t like. All I had to do was provide general guidance and content and Merit did the rest.

The best part about working with Merit was that she was always there to help. She met every deadline, and maintained a great sense of humor along the way. Merit was always there when I called, waited patiently for inputs from me, and always responded to email messages in a short time. Although Merit and I have met a couple of times, we were able to do everything by phone and email.

I am very pleased with the quality and creativity of Merit’s work and plan to continue to use her services far into the future.

Dear Merit,

Words can’t adequately express how delighted I am with your stellar design work on the Sex and the Kitchen web site. When we first started this project, I knew that it was going to require a very creative and flexible designer, one who could see the vision that we had for combining food and romance and creating something spectacular. You were that person, and you did just what we were hoping for, delivering a site that is nothing short of breathtaking.

We have already received numerous compliments on the site, and I’m sure there will be many more to come. Your elegant and sexy design is sure to garner attention from the press, the public and those elusive TV and publishing people that we’re trying so hard to reach! I’m thrilled to have a site of this quality to proudly show off in the coming months.

Your amazing flexibility, timely suggestions and encouraging attitude made working with you a joy! I look forward to more creative collaboration between us in the future.

Once again, many, many thanks!

With warmest regards,

Jennifer Jeffrey

Merit has been instrumental in our company’s growth and success. We had a very basic e-commerce website and enlisted Designs by Merit to revamp the site with the goal of having a more powerful on-online presence. Merit and her team really worked as an extension of our company by listening and fully understanding our company’s products and the goals we were trying to reach.

We had very limited knowledge of web design and optimization and Merit really took the extra time to help us understand what needed to change for our e-commerce to improve. Designs by Merit advanced our entire online presence by improving our copywriting, web design, ordering process, as well as greatly enhancing our optimization of the site thru her Search Thruster process. The results have been fantastic as we have increased our online sales by nearly 300%.

Thanks Merit!

The effort you exhibited to make sure that there was a tight match between our business and our web site was of real value to us. And what a wonderful site it turned out to be!

To Whom It May Concern:

It is with both confidence and pleasure that I write this letter of recommendation for Merit Lee. What began as a simple request for a six-page website to promote my new circus school quickly turned into a landmark success for my internet marketing strategy and my business overall. The prosperity of Circus Arts and Acrobatics is due, in part, to the creativity, insight and devotion that Merit has for maintaining a premier website for my business. She has developed an original concept, utilizing the latest in design innovation and technology to help launch my business into the 21st century.

Long after the initial obligation had been met, Merit continued to come up with fascinating ideas and intriguing designs for the site. Her use of video, audio and animation truly sets my business apart from others and she continues to call me with new themes to improve on the content and overall look of the business. She was able to capture my vision in a way that no one else has and I was truly fortunate to experience the rare opportunity of working with someone as original and extraordinary as Merit Lee.

During the course of our website design, there were numerous changes I was forced to make in scheduling, staffing and course curriculum. Merit was able to make the plethora of modifications without a blink and her expedient attention to my needs was greatly appreciated. I have received nothing but kudos and compliments from those who have viewed my website. The elegance in concept, layout and design of my website has catapulted the reputation of my company to one of serious professionalism. No longer is my business viewed as a goofy “clown school”. Instead, we are seen as the premier institution for circus arts training and worldwide aerial and acrobatic expertise.

I cannot say enough about Merit’s work. I feel that Merit Lee is, without a doubt, one of the best designers I have ever had the pleasure of working with. I hold Ms. Lee in the highest regard. She is a gifted and talented designer and will no doubt play an important role in the marketing success of any company she works for. Merit is truly outstanding.

Sincerely,

Maria Carrillo

When deciding to build and design a retail website, one of the most harrowing decisions to make is which software should I choose? Or, more poignantly, what software will give me the stability and security I need for online transactions, without making me compromise the originality of my design? I think that most would agree, that when committing to invest in an e-commerce site, a tried and true software package is desirable, but a look-alike site design is not. Our choice of Shopsite was based on these criteria, and the fact that, while being reliable and stable, it is extremely flexible and customizable.

Since we are a bookstore, we have a large database of products our customers need a clear way of navigating through. Our designer: Merit Lee of Digital Design Solutions (www.digitaldesignsolutions.co), created an extensive search capability to make the availability of the product at the customers finger tips. We have advanced dropdown category lists of subcategories, as well as a search via author name, book name, and general searches.

I think we utilized every custom option Shopsite has to offer, which is what we are so please with in regards to the product. It’s flexibility and advance/custom options allowed our designer the freedom create a site based on our specific requirements and needs. She designed custom templates to carry our professional look and feel through out the entire site enhancing the strength of the overall site, custom product templates so we have the a clean and compact presentation of each book. We utilized all of additional fields that are available in Shop Site Pro, so that we could have the options that we chose not just what the standard options (like letting people know, the availability of a book, who publishes the book, if there is a review out and more). Therefore creating a truly unique and specialized experience and utilizing the true capabilities and strengths that shopsite offers to those who want to go the extra mile and create something truly special.

Having a professional design enhanced by the flexiblity and customizable options Shop Site has to offer has enable us to create a site that stands above the competition, by showing our customers that we are a serious endeavor who has invested the time and talent to create a impressive store that will be here to last give them a sense of confidence when they give their credit card to a company that are not familiar with.

Creating a web site is a complicated and a daunting process at the very least, especially if the entire concept is new to you. I selected Digital Design Solutions based upon personal recommendations from others and after visiting samples of her sites. Further, I have directed many complicated artistic programs and I know how valuable accomplished, well trained and creative people can be a project.

Digital Design Solutions exemplifies this technical art form. In our case, we are selling something much greater than just architectural design. Through her efforts we were able to fully express the value and scope of our services which is the union of art and architecture. Her creative ideas and technical application produced a very exciting presentation of our services.

The second and extremely important phase of this marketing program is the placement of the site on the Web. Our confidence in Merit’s abilities is so high that we have placed total control of this aspect in her capable hands.

I highly recommend Digital Design Solutions for the design and subsequent applications of any challenging web site.
