"one of the best Company we have worked with in US or overseas"

Tom Callahan Executive Director SOS Foundation

"SD WEB did a great job on my Graphics. He took a basic concept and turned it into 6 graphics that tell the story I needed to tell. He revised small parts of the graphics until I was completely satisfied. He was on time and very responsive. I will definitely use him again for my next project. "

Rob McKie, Architect, AECOM - Transportation

"Awesome work. Very creative. Highly recommend. " He did an outstanding job and i do plan to hire again!

"Ótimo trabalho, grande ideia. Foi bastante atencioso e ágil com ajustes e entrega dos arquivos. eEcomendo"

Rob McKie, Architect, AECOM - Transportation

"They does excellent work. There were a few times some of the edits I wanted needed to be repeated because they were missed. But, I just asked for those edits again and they were quick to add them. Regarding the time it took to get this project completed, I did not realistically expect them to be done in just a few days. That is no fault of this freelancer. My brother and I live on different sides of the country here in the States. That causes communication delays. And, this freelancer lives half way around the planet! That causes other delays. I was in no rush to get something done in just days. However, if I wanted something real quick I think they would have completed this project in just a few days. This is only the second company I have worked with and I wish I would have chosen them first! I already have plans on asking them to work on future book covers for me."
