Not only did Michelle set up a GORGEOUS website for me, but she also created and/or linked all the other important pieces to my site an author needs, including Mail Chimp for newsletters, Amazon and Goodreads author accounts, and my social media (twitter, fb, Instagram). She was savvy, creative, efficient, listened well, and knew how to pull off exactly what I wanted. She wasn’t satisfied with the job until I was, even through all the little tweaks at the end. Highly recommend. Oh, and she’s priced reasonably too."
author, A Feigned Madness
I’m a professional writer and speaker who needs a user-friendly website to communicate with readers and event planners. A tool like this is essential for my work, and I’m grateful to have found Michelle Gill. Michelle worked closely with me to create a website unique to my personal platform. It’s very attractive, easy to navigate, and highly functional. Michelle listened carefully to both my wants and my needs, responded promptly, and has remained available to answer questions and offer technical support. I highly recommend her work!

I had a website that was the best I could do, but it was static. It did not pop. I worked closely with Michelle Gill during a period of about six weeks. We have just re-launched the site, and I've received scores of raves within the first 24 hours. Professionals in book publishing who have seen new the website (and most of them have subscribed to the site) have called it among the best they have ever seen.
Most of the connections between elements of the website were at Michelle's suggestion. She is responsible for most of the graphics. She created the dynamic energy of the site, using materials I provided but she managed so that they popped. One reason I chose Michelle as designer is that I like her general design style, which is streamlined, uncluttered, robust, and intuitive. She knows how to encourage the viewer to move through the site and to LIKE doing it, while making sure that the elements that are most important to communicate the purpose of the site are seen.
Those are among her professional qualities as a designer. Aside from that, she is a true pleasure to work with, and especially so for me, a beginner in her cyber world. She is knowledgeable, patient, willing to speak simple English, and she has a sense of humor. As we made decision after decision, and as she showed me new idea after new idea, and as she responded intuitively to my pleasure or sometimes not quite such pleasure, my trust in her artistic creativity increased and my caution about her results disappeared.
I am deeply pleased with my new website, thanks to Michelle Gill. I recommend Michelle enthusiastically."
