“David is an exceptional artist. He’s creatively generous, easy to work with and a good communicator. He really understands how to use color, design and placement to have a site look great to the eye. I’m really pleased with the work he did for me. I can honestly say that this is the first website I’ve had (and I’ve had a few) that really represents me and that’s such a nice feeling.”
“I feel like I won the graphic designer lottery finding David Shakiban! Not only does he WOW me again and again with his exceptiona
l artistic talent and stunning design work, he makes every step of the experience an utter joy and delight. I’ve worked with many designers over the years, and my experience with Shak stands out as being the most ease-fille d, fun, and inspiring co-creativ e process, exceeding my expectatio ns at every turn. He is a brilliant visionary, while also offering down-to-ea rth, practical, and strategic guidance. He is always open to ideas and feedback, genuinely cares about his clients, and pours his heart into designing sites that uniquely reflect the essence of each person with whom he works. He is abundantly generous with his time and goes above and beyond to make things just right. Plus, he’s a blast and will make the journey entertaini ng 😉 Within the first couple of sessions with Shak, I knew I had discovered a golden designer I was excited to work with for years to come. It is now many sessions later, and I continue to be in awe!”
“My website is a piece of art – people have been raving about how beautifully put together it is. It has really elevated my brand and more accurately represents who I am. I am so grateful to David of Colorgrooves for his stellar work.”
“David is fabulous! What I appreciate most about him is his ability to integrate his skills as a web guru with his incredible artistic talents. He has a clear sensibility for what sort of art and layout reflect the essence of the person for whom he’s designing. The colors, flow and overall look of my website are a beautiful expression of what I offer through my music and teaching. I am particularly enamored of David’s mandala as my logo!”
“David is a very creative designer. He was able to take my content and organize it with imagination and style. He made my work look beautiful. He is a good communicator making the process flow, and his patience was commendable. Using all the tools for WordPress including Photoshop (while I watched) gave me the opportunity to collaborate with him, giving me instant gratification. Thumbs up, 5 stars and Bravo to Colorgrooves!!!”
“Working with David was a real pleasure. He understood what I wanted with my website and made it better than I could have imagined. He’s professional, easy to get along with, and accommodating. But most of all, he’s creative and my website works.”
“I searched for two years to find someone who could design a website that really reflected the essence of my message & my business. When I discovered Colorgrooves, I knew I’d found my match. David took the time to get to know me in order to understand how to take the energy of my music, multi-media, events & coaching & transfer it all into a cohesive web presence. The design process was a joy!”
“I was wow’ed when I first took a look at David’s portfolio about a year ago, but was already in process with someone else. Six months later, I decided to follow my gut, abandon the first design, and give David a call. I did, and I couldn’t be happier with the result. The live design sessions made it feel like a true collaboration, with someone whose design sense is much more refined than mine, and whose skills are completely up-to-date.”
“In the past, I’ve worked with 3 different designers on 3 different websites and always felt frustrated and a bit crazy during the design process because I could never get the person I hired to translate the vision I had in my head onto the screen. That all changed with David. Working side-by-side in his studio has been the most efficient and the most fun way to see my site come to life. His collaborative design process sets him apart!”
“David Shakiban did an amazing job on recreating my site. I highly recommend his work to anyone who’s ready to take their business to the next level.”
“Choosing David as my website designer was awesome. The intentions that we set at the beginning are all reflected in the end product. David is a great mix of “techy” knowledge and creative expression. We worked in person, side by side, which really eased the process. I highly recommend him.”
“David is an amazing artist, digital wizard and all around good guy. Hiring him was a brilliant decision on my part. I couldn’t be more delighted with the results. The co-creative process was at times magical. Sometimes he would intuit what I wanted before I could even articulate what that was. The live design sessions were beautifully effective in generating a website that feels resonant with the soul of my business.”
“I am so happy with my site! Working with David was such a pleasure. David is patient, creative, organized, super easy-going and a great listener. He listened to me regarding what I wanted for my site and created it right front of my eyes. He has a keen ability to translate what a client says they want into a strong visual. He is gifted intuitively, creatively and technically. A great combo!”
What I appreciated the most about working with David is that he took the time to help me figure out what I was looking for. We went through a number of different ideas until we landed on the right look and I am so pleased with how everything turned out.Lexi F.
I had a feeling that David at Colorgrooves Creative was going to be a solid web designer, but I was surprised to find out how unique and eye catching his websites are. He produced a site for me that is really organized, creative, and beautiful.Cameron Q.
Oh this has been a journey!
1) tried to design my own website = fail
2) tried to look for web designer who got me and my work = fail
3) tried Colorgrooves = pass, over and above what I expectedRavneet V.
Colorgrooves was fantastic to work with. I had dreaded designing a site, and they designed 2 for me in record time. They are better than anything I could have hoped for.Jeff J.
