"We are thrilled with the professional web image Catherine has created for us. Our branding is now sharp and consistent, and we so appreciated how well she listened and addressed our concerns throughout the design process."
Nathan & Andrea Moore, Integra Mechanical and Air Ltd.

I would highly recommend Catherine to anyone looking for a high quality, professional website, whether they're a one-shop entrepreneur, or a large, established business. Not only is Catherine extremely competent on the tech side of websites, she brings a wonderfully creative perspective to her work. We were thrilled with how her creative use of image and colour connected to our brand and message. Thanks Catherine!!

She is patient and understanding as you go through the various stages of development and work through all the details. She is also adept in gently nudging you in the right direction. She made everything easy! I am thrilled with my website and have gotten great feedback from users. I highly recommend Crimson Leaf Studios."

"Catherine is knowledgeable, efficient and personable. She has helped the Communications Department build our online profile and is a patient teacher when we need help and support with the technical details."
Jacqui d'Eon, Principal at the Communications Department
"After trying a DIY website builder I quickly realized that a professional was needed to create the site I wanted rather than forcing myself into a template. Crimson Leaf Studios listened to what I wanted and created a professional and functional website for my business. My customers are now able to easily see the options and services I offer and results have been good. Catherine is prompt, reliable and really listens. She didn't try to oversell me and delivered on her promises. I would definitely recommend Crimson Leaf Studios to anyone looking to build their online business."
