Client Feedback

thumbs-up-icon“I knew from our first email exchange that Dan would be a pleasure to work with. I contacted him because I wanted to create a website for my photos, and he developed an effective, aesthetically pleasing site that is easy for me to maintain.

He’s very open to collaboration and is always willing to answer my questions in a timely manner (even when he’s hiking in Arizona!). He made the process of starting a website easy and inspiring, and for that I’m very grateful. I would wholeheartedly recommend Dan to anyone looking for a very talented web designer.”

-Suzanne Hancock (Photographer)


“I knew how important a website is to a business, though my computer skills are fairly basicand I had heard many stories of outrageous website prices, both initially and ongoing. It seems some of my friends felt at the mercy of their website designers, trust also seemed to be an issue. I feel very fortunate to have found Dan and his company. I felt right away that he would be competent and fair … this has been more than accurate. I receive many compliments on my website and feel he has captured the essence of what I like to show my potential clients. I highly recommend Dan to anyone looking for a website, thank you Dan for all of your work!”

-Floyd Gniewotta (Kelowna Earthworks Landscaping and Design)

thumbs-up-iconWhen I began development of my website, I researched several web designers in the area. I chose Design Menu initially because the site was well-organized and easy to navigate. There also seemed to be a sincere intention to provide clear information about the process of web design that made it approachable and less intimidating. My experience has confirmed this. Dan is collaborative in his approach, responds quickly to questions, and is obviously committed to his work. I have been very pleased with the support and direction I have received throughout the development of my website and since then.”

-Anne Paterson-Welsh (Registered Clinical Counsellor)

thumbs-up-iconI would like to thank Dan at Design Menu Web creations for a professional, speedy, insightful, creative, thoughtful, affordable and enjoyable experience in creating my website. I was not looking forward to this at first and have since completely changed my mind and enjoyed the process. I can honestly say that working with people like Dan exceeded all my expectations and took the pressure off ” I hope they can get the idea”. The man just seems to be able to read minds and share the same excitement I had for my business. Dan listened and seemed to understand my goals and needs and created a website exactly the way I wanted almost right off the bat. As I have worked with web design before this was a total surprise to me and I would recommend Dan to any person or business that is looking to do the same.”

-Erik Duivenvoorde (Firebird Waste Solutions)

thumbs-up-iconDan of Design Menu Web Creations was great to deal with. Courteous, a very reasonable quotation, and prompt with getting my own website on the board. Dan had good ideas and some nice little touches pertaining to my site layout … thanks again Dan.”

-Ed King (King Woodworks, Qualicum Beach, BC)

thumbs-up-iconWhen I was looking to build a website for my company I contacted Dan, he got back to me right away and the website was up and running within a week. He was easy to work with, made changes to the website quickly when asked, was able to listen to my vision and came up with an awesome layout. His services are also very reasonably priced….what more could you ask for!”

Brian Hlina (Owner, West Coast Sundecks, Parksville, BC)

thumbs-up-iconTrustworthiness and experience, along with great customer service are important in web design. Dan possesses these, and has a passion for web design and building. He responded quickly to help me reach my client base. Dan listened to my thoughts and suggestions and gave me more than I had expected. A good example of his detail and design is the emphasis on social networking, which has expanded my online presence. It was a pleasure to work with Dan, and my first response from a gallery was that the new site was ‘elegant.’ I would recommend anyone seeking professional web design to use “Designmenu”.

thumbs-up-iconWe get a lot of good reviews about our website, and get a lot of business from it. Dan was very prompt with getting our website finished. We would send him info and the same day he’d have it up and running on our website. Within a week of having the website, we got an email, through the website, of a possible wedding cake! The website is a great success for our small business. It is very user friendly and we can update info when ever necessary. His computer expertise has been very helpful. We are very happy with the results and know our website is in good hands.”

Candice & Caitlin (Cocoa Tree Bake Shoppe, Olds, Alberta)

thumbs-up-iconWe are so happy with the website that Dan made for us. His expertise in search engine optimization has made it so much easier for people to find us on the internet. The majority of our new inquiries come from our website. We were impressed with his skills and timely manner getting things up and running. He continues to be a great support to us with any changes or updates needed for the site.”

-Kristina C. (Coastal Integrated Medicine, Victoria, BC)

thumbs-up-iconDan created a new web site for St Mary’s Anglican Church Nanoose Bay in Spring 2009.  Since then he has continued to give us support and advice. The quality of the web site structure is self evident. He created it and amended it as required quickly and efficiently. We had a totally inexperienced person to put material on the site.  Dan held his hand and gave good clear advice;  Due to this we are now able to add increasingly complex material ourselves. As we move forward we have new ideas about the web-site. Dan continues to give clear prompt advice in a very professional manner.”

thumbs-up-iconI had always been somewhat reluctant to have a website created for my gardening business. My list of customers had been increasing quite nicely through word-of-mouth and I saw no reason to make any changes. Though colleagues of mine had been lauding the benefits of their websites for some time. So I pushed my reluctance to one side and contacted Dan, a web designer who had put together a site for a friend of mine. It turned out to be a very painless experience for someone who is barely computer literate. Dan consulted with me throughout the process, listening to my feedback, and very quickly produced a beautiful website. Since then, I have received inquiries from both local residents and many who live out of Province but who own properties locally. The scope of a website is quite extraordinary. My colleagues were right.”

– Bo Bartlett (Bo’s Garden Services, Qualicum Beach, BC)

thumbs-up-iconBeing introduced to Dan was one of the truly opportune moments of my business years in Oceanside. As a landscaper I endeavour to customize each job by capturing the customer’s personality within the landscape design. I was delighted to find that Dan was similarly able to “read me” and create something which jelled with my needs and personality. I have had numerous positive comments (and business) as a result of Dan’s talents.

Just as amazing, Dan has an innate ability to keep me at the top of our local search engines. It seems he is forever conscious of my needs even when we have not been in touch: I received a call for snow removal just days after mentioning it to Dan (who was out of the country on holiday!) I have been continually impressed by Dan’s dedication, on top of his creative skills. The marrying of creativity and dedicated vigilance is a very rare commodity. One seldom gets both gifts in the same package. God Bless.”

– Brian Sangster-Kelly (Blooming Lovely Landscape & Design Services, Parksville, BC)

thumbs-up-iconThanks, Dan, for all your hard work and extra touches. We now have a web site that not only looks great and conveys the important information we wish to publicize, but allows us to submit news and updates ourselves and incorporates a technicians blog. It has also put us at the top of web searches for our area. This job has surpassed our expectations.”

Patrick C. (AppTech Services, Nanaimo)

thumbs-up-iconWe have a small hair salon in Ontario.  We were not only impressed with his ability to adapt and create a design for a funky, creative industry but he also keeps me updated…from 4 provinces away. We have gained clients and potential employees from this website.  The website has brought us in a huge percentage of new business.”
