LET'S DISCUSS
Geoffrey has been beyond helpful. Before starting working together my website was based on wix platform but we were constantly facing challenges: payment options, adaptation of the website through a variety of devices, evolving the website with the needs of our growing project and much more. Although wix answered our needs at the start of our business with its user friendliness it was now very much needed to move towards WordPress platform to optimally support the growth of our business. Working with Geoffrey made the process smooth and we felt supported by an expert in the domain throughout every step. He has been very available, professional and delivered a good result. I couldn’t be more grateful for the continuous support even once we concluded the wordpress website and his involvement in wanting the best for our business beyond expectation.LaurenceSource CacaoGeoffrey Hennies at Lowthian Design has been without a doubt, the best webmaster we have ever had. In my over 11 years of experience as a social entrepreneur (with multiple companies and several websites), I've never been happier and more grateful for our website and our webmaster than I am now. A couple of years ago, our company page had become overrun by spam and was an outdated nuisance and Geoffrey completely revamped our website into a beautiful platform that now consistently generates new business for us. Since then, Geoffrey has patiently helped us manage the page, learn to do it ourselves, advised us on techniques to boost traffic, and is always extremely responsive to anything we might need. At CASSA, we love Lowthian Design, and give them the highest possible recommendation we can!!Tono Aguilar - CASSACassa GuatemalaWe have worked with Geoffrey for over 15 years and always enjoy what his great attitude and spirit bring to a project.He goes above and beyond to make sure that we are pleased with his work!Bill HarrisCafe CampesinoLowthian Design Works is one of the single most important partnerships that our organization, Programa Velasco has made since we were founded in 2007. We are based in the US but operate in El Salvador. Our web presence is the predominate way people learn and reference our work. Prior to partnering with LDW, we had a simple, uninspiring and unprofessional web presence. Therefore, our organization was seen as such. As a result of working with LDW, our organization’s website, online donation platform and e-newsletter campaigns all convey that we are a trustworthy, professional and legitimate organization that successfully carries our our mission. LDW’s staff trained our our staff to build, edit and maintain the site’s function. Our staff takes ownership in our web presence and feels empowered and competent to make improvements.Annie BoydPrograma VelascoAs a writer and journalist who works to feature the poor I am constantly on the move and I don’t have the time to manage or design a website. For a very fair price Lowthian Design Works has allowed myself and the stories that I tell to have a voice on the web. Lowthian Design Works has worked tirelessly with me. Together we have designed two English speaking websites and one Turkish website. The dedication, sacrifice and effort displayed by Lowthian is the best on web, bar none. If you are lucky enough to work with Lowthian Design Works you can know that Lowthian’s staff believes in your work and that you are a part of the Lowthian family.Sean David HobbsEmbedded Journalist - Cairo EgyptSeveral years ago, we lost control of our website—volunteers moved on and technology changed, and we were a small, struggling nonprofit who could not afford the price of professional help. Or so we thought. Lowthian Design Works came to our rescue—found us a free host for our site, pointed us to WordPress and helped us choose a template, then customized it just for us. What we have now is an up-to-date site that users tell us is very accessible and helpful. And we can update it easily ourselves. The folks at Lowthian have been quick to help us when issues arise, and they make sure the solutions are what we want. From start to finish, they have offered support for our vision rather than foist something on us. We could not imagine a better relationship.Ralph HuchinsonOak Ridge Environmental Peace AllianceGeoffrey was instrumental in helping the Mattie J.T. Stepanek Foundation develop a new website, and since it launched continues to provide expert guidance and support on a daily basis as we add content and features to it. He has tutored me in Word Press and always responds quickly to any issues I may run into as I learn. In addition to his professional expertise, Geoffrey is a wonderful human who is a delight to work with. I highly recommend him to any non-profit organization needing to enhance their web presence.Laura BauerExecutive DirectorPreviousNext
