Testimonials

“Billy is a rising star at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. Since promoting him to Web Services Manager, I have watched Billy grow into an excellent manager and more importantly – a leader. As an employee, Billy does all the right things that you would expect: Smart, self starter, life long learner, easy to work with, takes guidance and constructive criticism well, team player. As a manager, he is a planner, and executes well. He is in tune with his customers and close to his staff. He is a collaborator and a pioneer when he needs to be. Lastly – Billy is “good people”. As I have said many times before – you can train for skills but hire for attitude – Billy has both!”

Ramon Padilla, Associate Vice Chancellor and Deputy Chief Information Officer at University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill

 

“I have had the pleasure of working closely with Billy on a number of projects and have seen through repeated examples that his talent as a Web designer is equally matched by his professionalism, his attention to detail and his commitment to customer service. I have been consistently impressed with his ability to work collaboratively with clients to develop Web sites that typically exceed their expectations for visual presentation of content as well as exceed their requirements for interactivity and information delivery. It is rare to find a creative individual who has the ability see the “big picture” view of a project and has the technical skills needed to turn todays’ Web-based technologies into an effective online channel for information delivery. Billy is just such an individual.”

Audrey Ward, Executive Director of Communications at Duke Divinity School

 

“We hired Billy to design a new web site, The Daily Yonder. We didn’t know what we were doing, to put it mildly. Billy walked us through everything — helped us with both our concept and our design. AND he helped us find the cheapest, easiest way to do what we wanted to do. Plus, he designed the site with originality and style. We got art, we got practical advice, we got a site that has worked without a flaw for the past year. We really couldn’t have been happier. Billy is fun, creative and an absolute joy to work with. He really wants to do what’s best for the client — even when the client doesn’t know what’s best for himself.”

Bill Bishop,  Author and Editor

 

“Billy was brought in on a very high-profile project for the Press — to design a new web site for the Encyclopedia of North Carolina. The Press presented Billy with a lot of vague ideas of what we wanted to convey through the site but very few specifics. He asked for, and was given, access to the image files for the book and all of the graphics/fonts used in the publication. When we saw the results the reaction, Press-wide, was amazement. Billy “got” what we were trying to do, the understood the need to link the prestige of the Press with the history conveyed in the Encyclopedia while keeping the site looking fresh and modern. Billy did an incredible job, completely exceeding our expectations… I would not only work with Billy again but would (and have) recommended himto anyone in need of web design services. Billy is in high demand and one look at some of his work will show you why.”

Tom Franklin, IT Manager UNC Press

 

“Billy consistently delivers top notch web work, with designs that convey the intended message with style. His work is also consistent with standards and practices of modern web design, using CSS, etc.. However, the best part of working with Billy was that he made an effort to listen, understand and provide excellent customer guidance and customer service. I strongly recommend him!”

Greg Jansen, Software Developer, UNC-Chapel Hill

 

“Billy is a great designer who truly appreciates and works to better understand how his design will impact the end user. At Callaway Golf Interactive, Billy was instrumental in our ecommerce, email, banner advertsing, onsite merchandising and site design efforts. He has the desired ability to take business requirements and turn them into a functional and attractive design that produces the desired behavior from the target user. I enjoyed working with Billy and would recommend his work to anyone.”

Trent Willenberg, VP of E-Commerce at Austin Tele-Services

 

“Throughout the 2.5 years I worked with Billy, he was a godsend. As a communicator, I often knew what I needed to communicate, or to whom, but Billy was the one who made our messages look polished and professional. I never saw a bad design from him — much to the contrary — and he usually delivered designs and live sites on a very tight schedule. I’ve watched him work late on many occasions, and I know that his work ethic is top-notch.”

Hilary Culbertson , Program Manager at HASTAC

 

“During his time working for me, Billy consistently demonstrated key attributes which lead to success: intelligence, passion, energy and good humor. As a member of a collaborative team of web developers and designers, Billy’s skills were relied upon to contribute to the company’s industry-leading user interface, as well as in support of online marketing, sales and customer management programs. As a manager, I could not have asked for a more complete, contributory nor effective employee, and I would hire Billy again in an instant should the opportunity arise.”

Jack Newton, IPM Product Manager at Deltek

 

“I worked with Billy for two years on various projects, including graphic design, web/print style standards, and UI/UX design. Billy was a consistently valuable colleague and someone who could be entrusted to follow through on project goals to completion. He also exhibited strong initiative to start new projects or to address existing UI problems when the need arose. The quality of his work showed a high level of detail and considerable forethought, especially concerning user experience. Always open to new ideas and collaboration, Billy was a pleasure to work with (we shared offices) and I would not hesitate to work with Billy again.”
