“I am very impressed with Bruce Rawles’s ability to help me transform our website from the dinosaur age into the 21st century. Bruce was able to combine a variety of features from the main university website and other department/school websites to create a site for the English Department that vastly increases our functionality and improves visitors’ perception of who we are. He blended many features together to craft an elegant, intuitive, easy-to-maintain WordPress site that matches the campus ‘look and feel’ while providing a unique persona in keeping with the needs of faculty, students, and alumni. Bruce researched, identified and implemented plugins ideally suited to our site, did significant CSS customization, optimized the architecture, and provided ongoing training (including custom screen flow video) to ensure that the site will be simple and straightforward to keep up to date. This new responsive design looks great on large monitors, tablets and smart phones. It is easy to navigate and gives viewers a lively experience when they visit. Bruce was also a pleasure to work with. We brainstormed how to achieve our objectives together. His ‘can do’ helpful attitude and quick response were invaluable at each step of the overhaul process, which went very smoothly from concept to when the site went live on July 18, 2014. I could not have achieved our final outcome without his help. I would recommend Bruce’s expertise to anyone needing a customized WordPress website that will serve well for the long haul.”

Bruce did a superb job with an extensive update to our primary website, d-7Roofing.com. This required finding new ways of using new and existing web tools and adapting them to an elegant design concept that he and I worked on together. It turned out even better than I would have imagined! He really understood what I was asking for, as well as all the other aspects that go into making a great website that provides the information our customers – both B2B and B2C – are looking for.
Bruce did videography and took hundreds of photos of our company’s roofing projects, large and small. He did massive research about our industry, freeing me from having to figure out how to approach a project I was too busy to spend much time on, working independently and only asking for feedback at just the right milestones in the project. He took a small handful of key ideas and worked them into a masterpiece of a website, with writing, graphics, photography, design and the best ‘under the hood’ web technology available. His outstanding voice-over audio narrations for the YouTube videos he put together for us complement his professional selection, retouching and photographic image-editing skills. It’s obvious that he has a passion for web work in his attention to detail and interest in using the most effective and usable tools available, optimizing the marketing effectiveness of each page and each element on it. We more than quadrupled our site traffic in just the first month the new site went live, and it continues to grow. We’ve had lots of compliments on the site, too.
Bruce also created several other integrated sites for us, including a full-featured, stand-alone website devoted to our roof repair capabilities, Repair.d-7Roofing.com. This site – almost as large as the main site – was put together very quickly, yet with the same finesse and care. Like the main site, it uses current ‘best practice’ tools, great visuals and seasoned insight into how to present and organize large amounts of industry-specific material in a way that anyone can access and understand easily. A third site Bruce made for us is a private intranet site that our sales force now uses for outside B2B visits with dozens of route maps to our business partners. He figured out how to use online tools to cut our travel time and expenses and employ WordPress plugins to make the site usable by mobile devices. By thinking through how these would be used, his mobile-friendly design allows our sales force to use these clickable spreadsheets and maps from partner offices, integrating feedback from each visit into our internal CRM database without having to return to our main office to capture that important data.
We will continue to use the ongoing maintenance services of Intent Design Studio and Bruce’s expertise to keep all our sites and marketing efforts up-to-date and using the best leading edge technology. I whole-heartedly recommend Bruce for small businesses looking for a quality web presence in the Denver, Colorado area or beyond, since he does great work equally from his home office in Castle Rock as he does on site at our facility. He is a pleasure to work with and I give him my highest recommendation for website design, graphics, photography, voice-over audio narration, copywriting, marketing strategy/SEO or related work.”

“Bruce is a good friend, and has helped us tremendously with a number of web and design projects when he lived nearby in Oregon. We were concerned when he moved to Colorado that he could no longer continue to assist us. However, in fact, using a screen-sharing feature on Skype and DropBox, he is still able to help – just as easily as if we had been in the same room together. Thank you once again, dear friend. ‘Great work!!” — D. and S. Shrock, Yachats, OR
