From Our Clients
We were very happy with the development process and the outcome. The objectives have all been achieved, in terms of usability and ease of use in updating the site. You definitely nailed both of these.
The launch .. was a success. We were able to present this live on a Wireless connection during our Sydney, Australia sales conference on a location with very limited internet bandwidth. This proves the technology used .. renders light webpages which are easy to download on a browser.
Comments I've heard from our employees were all positive and reflected precisely what we were looking for: a simple but concise, clean and effective webpage.
We acknowledge the timeframe given to you was extremely short but nevertheless you have sucessfully delivered the project on schedule .. the critical success factor was communication and availability of Digital Tsunami's team.
I am very glad we were able to partner with such a professional team as yours and I am confident any other initiatives with you will be as successful.
Thank you for the development of an updated brand image for Wah Yuet in China.
While originally contracted to produce a video highlighting Wah Yuet's manufacturing capabilities, it was apparent very quickly that your understanding of our requirements, combined with your experience, were the perfect fit to create a new logo and style guidelines for the company. While relatively small in scope, you were dedicated to the success of the project and I am pleased to say that you hit the bullseye!
Working with this team has been a delight and the resulting website far exceeds our expectations. All stages of the process were handled professionally, promptly and creatively. Discussions went smoothly, with flawless communication and suitable and sensible solutions whenever issues were raised. Time frames were either met or delivered early. The site was 100% accurate, indicating impressive attention to detail.
Without exception, the feedback on our site has been outstanding - clear and thoughtful layout, appropriate and interesting graphics and intuitive navigation.
Your team has been great to work with. Tamara is very quick to catch on to things and Amir's code and CSS has impressed David due to its' simplicity and elegance.
