Utkaduck Design worked with my limited budget to produce a site that is quick loading, attractive and easy to use. I had used a website developing company before that only wanted to make the sale. I lost all the money that I invested in that company as the site was unusable. Utkaduck Design had my site up and running in less than a month so I could capture Christmas business. Utkaduck Design goes the extra mile. I highly recommend their work.

Utkaduck helped me redo my website and finally get it out and working. I had been working with another company that continually had problems making things work. I asked Alex for some help, and within days my website was published and processed with all the search engines. Alex knew the best way to publish my site so that I would start receiving responses, and I did. Alex is great to work with, has really good ideas, and he knows what works from a consumer viewpoint and from the business viewpoint.

I was interested in developing a web page to advertise a condominium rental that my wife and I had just purchased in Kauai. Not knowing what we really wanted, we met with Alex and gave him a few ideas and then told him to just go with his best instincts. Within two weeks and to our utter amazement and surprise, he presented us with a beautiful web page design that was beyond what we had imagined. But Alex did not stop there. He assisted us with every step of how to register the web page and how to get it logged at the front of the most common search engines on the web. To this day, he is still there to assist us in keeping the web page up to date. His ideas, services, and ultimate design knowledge are exceptional.

Alex Dourov has designed my company's web site from scratch, and is responsible for routine maintenance of the site. Alex is a knowledgeable professional who has the breadth of experience and confidence to advise clients on available options, technologies, design aspects and questions of cost and efficiency. As VP Publications, I am responsible for our web site and work closely with Alex. I enjoy his focused approach, his rapid response cycle and his willingness to argue his professional corner for the best of the product. I wholeheartedly recommend his services.

As a satisfied customer of Utkaduck Design I offer the following recommendation and offer to speak with any potential business that is evaluating your company's services:

"As a toy manufacturer, with a strong focus on educational value, we were looking to have a website developed that looked fun while bringing forth a professional image.

Utkaduck Design has provided more that a website development service for my company, ImagAbility Inc. The company provided a comprehensive evaluation of my business, products, services and marketing objectives.  A review of our specific "web-goals" and sample site visits was requested before a proposal was offered.  The company's proposal specified that the site would be developed using Microsoft FrontPage and that ImagAbility would own the end product.  Further, the proposal offered a satisfaction guarantee that payments would not be invoiced until our staff was satisfied with each development of the site.

Throughout the site development Utkaduck Design continued to offer site improvements and recommendations to minimize our e-commerce overhead.

Utkaduck Design has completed three separate developments
for our company in the last two years. Alex Dourov's company has continued to provide us with excellent service always prompt to answer questions and many times providing free instructions that allow us to learn ways of updating our site."

Utkaduck Design has proved to be an asset to Semicore Equipment Inc. The production has been of the utmost quality, professional and very responsive to our requests and needs. I would highly recommend Utkaduck Design, Alex's attention to detail is unsurpassed.

It is essential for our business success that we communicate and maintain complex material specifications. In addition we must keep our customer base informed as to the breadth of our capability. This was our goal when we retained Utkaduck Design to develop our web site. Due to the nature of this undertaking, there were a number of late stage design decisions. In each of these cases, Alex recommended the most cost-effective, user-friendly approach. Response from our customers has been extremely positive. I would recommend Utkaduck Design without reservation.
