We have had Irina complete two of our business websites now. She is efficient, thorough and listened to our needs. She has since been able to direct more traffic to our website and has increased our business calls. Couldn't recommend Irina enough. Brilliant!Priscilla, Bayside Scaffolds
It has been a pleasure working with Irina. She is an excellent communicator and a fastidious hard worker. She has an eye for detail and brought color and imagination to an otherwise sterile brief. I will look forward to working with her again in the future.Thom, 3 Point Lighting
