"I've worked with Elytra for several years now, through an initial web design, an updating of that design, and then the creation of a whole new site. Because my experience was positive from the very start, I was happy to continue with Andrea and Elytra when it came time for our ambitious new site. Our working relationship is very collaborative, which is good since the design of a large site requires a lot of revisiting of plans, improvising of new solutions, and making hard decisions on letting go of options that don't seem to be working. It requires a lot of trust in both directions to do this.
Our expectations as an organization, and mine as webmaster, have been met and exceeded through every step of our journey. From the launch of our first site we have been perceived as a leader in website design in our community of educational nonprofits, academic institutions, and Buddhist organizations. We have felt all along that Elytra was the right choice to help us bring a new level of design sophistication to this community. Our latest website is such an improvement that our previous site, which was indeed well loved, looks outdated by comparison. Andrea and Elytra share our desire to keep improving.
[Our audience] deserves the best presentation possible. And because our site is organized as well as it is, our readers have a better chance of encountering all the powerful ideas we hope to promote.Our site adds incredible value, in that our organization has been privileged to collaborate with a wide range of thought leaders, social innovators, and others committed to a more harmonious world. These people deserve the best presentation possible. And because our site is organized as well as it is, our readers have a better chance of encountering all the powerful ideas we hope to promote. The website is our international calling card. The site also adds value in encouraging people to believe that joining our community might be a good idea, not least because the site communicates professionalism, a positive attitude, and seriousness of intent.
I certainly would recommend Elytra. Andrea's strengths include leading a creative discovery process and then working collaboratively to come up with great solutions. And as I mentioned, her commitment to ongoing improvement is very important. She is not complacent with her existing skill set. Her move to focus on Drupal sites demonstrates that."
