“Melissa did excellent work conceptualizing with very little direction and a very tight deadline. As we progressed through the project, I had several rounds of revisions and additional requirements and Melissa met these with excellence and timeliness. She was a pleasure to work with throughout the design process and the presentation was very well received.”

“I’m a UX designer and have worked with many front-end developers before. It’s always hard to find diamond in the roughs like Melissa Gillard. She has eyes like an eagle and can find any pixel out of place. I needed a developer who could capture my vision and she delivered above and beyond. I had a personal blog project and she knows a lot about developing for WordPress which can be complicating due to it’s constant updates and ever changing guidelines. She’s a pleasure to work with and can’t thank her enough. Would love to work with her again in the future.”
— Stacey Ann Padiernos

“My business partner and I were extremely hesitant about choosing to work with a web developer who lived all the way across the country from us that we hadn’t met before, but Melissa put those anxieties to rest very quickly. As soon as our first phone call was finished, Melissa immediately followed up with an email detailing what we told her we wanted. This exchange was indicative of how the rest of our time working with Melissa went: quickly, concisely, and accurately.
Melissa worked very hard for us and really listened to what we had to say and gave us exactly what we wanted (and more). Our website needed to be stylish, contemporary, and geared toward a young audience: Melissa listened to this, drew inspiration from the same things we did, and made something that was better than what we’d initially imagined.
We are so pleased with the work Melissa did. She was always there to help us–at any time of day–with anything we needed. From logo design to helping us with WordPress plugins to general questions about running a website in general, Melissa was consistently there to help us along the way. Our site is a news-style blog that updates every day, and the layout Melissa customized for us from a WordPress template is engaging, chic, and eye-catching–something our readers demand in addition to great content. Melissa delivered.
We 100% recommend Melissa because of her attention to detail (and her keen ability to listen and truly understand what her client wants), her adaptability, her punctuality, and her amazing skills at making a beautiful web site!”
