If you are looking for someone to develop your brand and website - look no further Chris is your guy. When searching this out for my company, many of the companies and people I talked to didn't seem to care what I was needing/wanting from a website developer. But then I called Chris Depa Web Design & Branding, when we first spoke he got some basic understanding of what I was looking for and then we set up a time to discuss everything in more details. I knew Chris' company was the right fit for me after we had our initial meeting. Chris developed our website not only by listening to our vision but also by doing his own research on our company and our industry to get a better understanding of what we did. Chris took the time to get to know us and made us feel that he genuinely cares that our business is a success!

Chris is the consummate professional. His ideas were creative, but not crazy. He was patient and thorough as he guided us through the website development process. We especially appreciated his responsiveness and his turn around time was spot on. Without reservation, we would recommend Chris to any person or business that wants a professional looking website at a reasonable cost.

Being in the printing business we often receive files from graphic designers that look pretty but are not production ready which causes delays in production. Chris is VERY creative and he also has the expertise to produce graphic art files that are perfect. This saves clients both time and money.

Our team worked with Chris to re-build our website. Chris was able to take our vision and bring it to life with minimal direction. He offered suggestions and recommendations along the way; we were able to tap into his expertise to build a better end product. When we finally launched the new site, Chris stayed with the team and provided ample training and support to help us along the way. He even went the extra step to provide recorded training videos since we were novice users. Chris has always been super responsive during the build and even post website launch.

Thank you for your help on my website Chris. After you made the repairs I noticed you have many 5 star reviews. I know why.I called Chris this afternoon because my website crashed. I explained to him what happened and that my current designer suddenly passed away. Chris explained to me what he thought was wrong and that he could probably quickly fix it in less than an hour. Chris called me back a little later and had everything fixed and cautioned me what not to do so this can be avoided again.I am more than lucky to have called Chris. He was my first call after a Google search. He will be me go to for all my website building and update needs.I am in the hospitality business and Chris treated me as if he was in the business with me.

We got Chris's recommendation from our architects and we couldn't be happier with the end product. After spinning our wheels with other options for designers, Chris turned around several great ideas and one that just popped the minute everyone saw it. He worked quickly with us and provided a great survey to get us started. We were stunned at how well he 'heard' us through the survey results. Excited to have a new fresh symbol for our church that just moved and is starting a new chapter. He is professional, quickly responds to both phone and email messages, and easy to work with. But most important is the quality of his product!

As a start-up company, we rely on our website to legitimize our business, further our brand, and provide content that will help convert sales and Chris delivered a beautiful site that represents these goals perfectly. We went through a lengthy selection process with many designers and decided to work with Chris, and without a doubt he proved us right! Chris was wonderful to collaborate with - he listened to us and understood the look and feel we wanted for the final product. Technically he was very capable and helpful, he was even able to work ‘outside the box’ and create our more challenging functionality requests. Additionally he made many marketing suggestions that we implemented to maximize the site’s user experience. From our first introduction to the final days, Chris always provided solutions when we had challenges – making everything easy for us. The process was very smooth and in the end we are thrilled with our site and enormously grateful to Chris. We highly recommend working with Chris on your website.
