Testimonials

Nothing makes me happier than a thrilled client. The collaborative process really pays off—and I have lots of repeat business to prove it. Here’s what some of my clients have to say about our work together:

Megan is the kind of professional it's enjoyable to work with. She helped me look good as the person updating content on our company website. When we needed major edits and a new design she was prompt and clear about options, timing, cost and roles. I knew she could help us take our web presence where it needed to go. Her process is transparent and her sites look and work amazing.

Working together with Megan on these web sites (she helped me design two artists’ web sites - Nathan Lerner and Henry Darger) was such a pleasure, because she is committed to her professionalism, and her high standard is very obvious. Her sensitivity for my needs on these web sites simply made our work very easy.

Kiyoko Lerner

I can't say enough about how helpful Megan was in creating a website we are very pleased with. She is personable, listens well, and is a quick study which resulted in us being able to convey our ideas efficiently and see them come to life in the layout and design of our site. She has good boundaries and laid out the process in a way that set our expectations well about what she could do, how she would do it, and in what time frame. She was very responsive to all requests and input and kept the process moving forward to completion. I would use her again for other work and would highly recommend her to others.

Thomas Schemper
Replogle Center for Counseling and Well-Being, Director

Working with Megan was a pleasure, she was easy to communicate with, listened to all my concerns and always had constructive ideas that made the project better. The execution of the project was first class, I'm very proud of what I've ended up with, it outmatched my expectations. The support in maintaining the site after the fact has also been very useful and welcome. I would have no reservations in recommending her services to anyone who needs a clean, efficient, attractive website.

We had no experience in setting up a website and Megan guided us through the painless process. We now have a website that all of our volunteers can use to access training opportunities, learn about emergency preparedness and respond to a disaster when needed. We have now become the source of preparedness information for our 3 communities.

We love working with Megan. She's smart, dependable and really up to speed on where things are going (i.e. - responsive web, etc). She's a great utility player to have on the team.

Jeff Judge
Signal, CEO

Working with Megan to design and build my website was fast and painless. From the beginning she had an eye for which design would be the best with my existing logo and desired look. When glitches came up with both my website host and the Wordpress site we chose, Megan was able to work with the appropriate parties to eliminate them. Then, when it came time for revisions, Megan was quick to finish the project no matter how many edits I had. It was a pleasure to work with Megan - I’d recommend her to anyone!

Mindi Zissman
Zissman Media, Writer & Editor

We’re a small non-profit agency that hired Megan to rebuild our aging website. Our business objective was a site that we could manage and edit without fuss, and with a clean, contemporary look. Megan delivered on both counts – we’re operating on an up-to-date WordPress platform that anyone in our office can use, and we couldn’t be happier with the clean organization of the new site and the image it projects. Megan was wonderful and professional to work with – she listened to our needs but was directive about what would work best; she was patient with our delays and lapses but kept us mindful of the development timeline. I would highly recommend Megan to other organizations with web site projects!

David Holtermann
Lawyers Trust Fund of Illinois, General Counsel

Working with Megan was a real pleasure. We gave her a few loose concepts of what we wanted our site to feel like, and she was able to translate those into the sharpest version of what we had floating around inside our heads. From the opening talks to the mock-ups to the execution of the final version of the site, Megan nailed it on all levels. I look forward to working with her, as well as recommending her in the future.

Joe Weber
Dappered: Affordable Men's Style, Founder

Megan is calm, cool, and collected under fire—which makes her much more valuable than your typical amazing web developer. She is a professional who has the ability to deeply understand the needs of a client and is always a joy to work with.

Matthew Howard
Argonne National Laboratory, Director, Communications and Public Affairs

Our experience working with Megan was wonderful at every step. Megan redesigned our website from the ground up. She worked hard to assess our needs in the beginning, and she also made some great design and content suggestions based on her own experience. Our redesign efforts had stalled before Megan's involvement, and she set clear goals and sequential deadlines resulting in fresh focus from our team. Megan is a talented designer and a patient problem-solver and design-team therapist. We recommend her highly.

Daniel McElwain
The Bridge Avenue School, Principal/Teacher

I fear that my experience of working with Megan has spoiled me for all my future encounters with tech professionals. For someone like myself—who has very little knowledge of what goes on “behind the curtain” —talking to people who work with the web can be like going to the doctor: I cannot help but feel a little bit scared, intimidated, and vulnerable. Not so with Megan. She explained things in such a way that I felt real agency in how my ideas were being brought to life. She managed to give my site a real personality—one that not only accurately announces my intentions at a glance, but creates a human connection with the visitor. Hire Megan to redesign your own website, because she will make you look like the best version of yourself.

Jon Roberts
Adventures in Meditating, Writer

The way Megan managed the project from proposal to production was impeccable. The level of polish both in her designs and process is rare, wonderful, and appreciated.

Paul Olson, Wordpress Consultant

Creative, knowledgeable, organized, and skilled, Megan is a great partner in crime. She brings a rare combination of strong project management, technical savvy, and visually adept design. She is also extremely responsive and inexhaustibly patient, answering multiple questions (even when they’re a wee bit repetitive).

Lee Reilly, Digital & Content Strategist, Info Architect, Writer

Megan is our go-to freelance resource. She's multi-talented, detail-oriented, collaborative, quick to understand requirements, technically on her game, constantly improving her skill set, endlessly inquisitive, and perpetually cheerful. In short: it's a treat to work with her.

Drew Myler
Signal

I am absolutely thrilled with the work Megan did for me. From the very beginning, she listened and understood what I hoped for. She had her team take my sketchy ideas and transformed them into full bloom. It was a delightful experience.

Mary Ann Harr, Harpist

I’m not sure Megan knows how difficult it is to find a developer/designer such as herself. It’s really difficult, so to have found her is sweet relief. She’s wonderful to work with: smart, creative, friendly, respectful, and professional. Not only was my project finished on time, it was finished a tad early. More importantly, throughout the process she proved time and again that I could trust her judgment and advice implicitly. Whew!

Melissa Grossman
Word Pie, Owner & Editor

Working with Megan is a dream! Megan really listens to you and works with you to bring your vision to life. Megan possesses both technical expertise and a gift for design, and I always welcome and trust her opinion. She is a hard-working, efficient and budget-conscious professional that I turn to time and time again. I wholeheartedly recommend Megan for any web design project. Hire her!

Lindsay Williams
Bluebird Interactive, Owner

When you find an awesome developer, hold on to that person. And I’ve been doing just that. Redesigning Design Feast is my fourth web-based project—and the most extensive—involving Megan. It would not have been realized without her proactive diligence, creative sensibility and professional character. All qualities which Megan naturally demonstrates in all of our collaborations. Looking forward to our next get-it-real effort.

Nate Burgos
Design Feast, Founder & Designer

Megan set out a clear and concise plan from our initial meeting and she delivered in all facets. Through her creativity and knowledge, she designed a site that has elevated my business. We stayed on schedule and came in under budget and what owner doesn't like that? If you want a professional site created by a friendly, experienced and passionate designer then don't hesitate to contact Megan.

Jeff Sher

One look at Megan's portfolio will assure anyone as to her capabilities. Hire her to design your website and you will experience the many reasons why.

Jon Nelson
JEN Land LLC, Founder

Megan was able to turn a short and somewhat abstract conversation into an excellent design and website. She is very professional, technically savvy, an excellent communicator, and extremely easy to work with. I highly recommend her to anyone who wants a new website or is just looking to enhance their current site. She knows how to put herself into your shoes and interpret what you need and want.

Megan has great ability and creativity to produce something you’re looking for, simply by asking a few questions about yourself and your needs. I was quite impressed with my new website; she came up with an awesome look that truly described me and what I do. I’ll enjoy working with Megan in the future.

Patsy McEnroe, Photographer

Megan helps people express themselves on the web. And she does it very well. Before meeting her in person, I was impressed with her responsiveness, which remained from our project’s kick-off through completion. She’s diligent, thorough, quick and a proactive collaborator. The experience was fun. I’m gladly relying on Megan for the evolution of our first project, paving the way for potential work in the future. I highly recommend her to help realize your web-based ambitions.

Nate Burgos

Megan created the initial design for my website, and has re-designed and updated this site for over five years, perfectly adapting it aesthetically and functionally as my musical career has evolved over time. She has always been able to understand and capture my own vision for my website, adding her own unique ideas in what has been a truly enjoyable and meaningful collaborative process.

Jocelyn Arem, Musician, Activist, Cultural Historian

Megan is a top-notch interaction designer, project manager, and client wrangler—and she has stellar technical chops. She has the rare ability to produce consistently beautiful designs as well as successfully shepherd multiple complex web projects from conception to launch by building close partnerships with her clients. She never loses her cool and is a joy to work with. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Megan to anyone in the market for a high-end web design project.

Jack Auses

Megan is a consummate professional. She has an admirable ability to listen carefully and question adroitly in order to translate inchoate thoughts into a beautiful web product. I loved working with her, learned a lot, and gained confidence in my ability to maintain our new site.

Michele Zurakowski

Megan was great to work with! Besides her technical skills at setting up the website, she is very artistic and we’ve received many compliments about the look of the website. Megan structured our site so that it is very easy to find information that members are looking for. The system she used to maintain the site makes it very easy to update. In addition, she provided comprehensive training for the person who will update the website. We would highly recommend Megan!
