“Julie Abel is a genius. She is extremely talented in all aspects of the website design process; she speaks plainly about the complicated stuff, anticipates the needs and outcomes of a successful website and is really fun to work with throughout the project. ART342 has experienced immediate results in our new and improved presence on the web and continues to receive raving compliments from our visitors. Apperance shouldn’t always be everything, but the “Jabber Design extreme make-over” made us super hot!”

– Amy Reckley, Executive Director, ART342 Foundation

“Julie and JabberDesign are great to work with! We are extremely pleased with the website they created for our business, Specialty Gardens. We had some ideas about how we wanted the site to layout and look, but had no idea how to bring it all together. We are so happy to have found Julie because her design and technical expertise really brought this project to life. She is super patient and timely in answering all our questions, and has great ideas to make the site beautiful as well as functional. We really love the website you created for us, and have been getting great response from potential clients who view it. Within the first month, we established a new client directly from the site which led to the installation of a very large new perennial garden. We are happy to continue partnering with Julie and JabberDesign as the site evolves over time. We recommend her highly to anyone looking for professional and friendly website design services!”

– Paul and Kolleen Kiefer, Specialty Gardens, LLC

“Thank you for working with the City of Allegan and myself to create such a great website. The community response has been very positive as they see the website as a useful tool for them!”

– Trisha Henderson, Arts & Entertainment Assistant, City of Allegan

“It was such a pleasure working with Julie [Abel] as we sought to ‘re-invent’ our web-site last year. Although our new site has only been operational for a few months, the community feedback has been very positive – Users have said it is not only attractive but easy to navigate and locate the information they need. From our vantage, we have been able to enroll students for classes on-line and this has alleviated some of the stress at the front desk during the few hectic weeks registrations occur. Julie was also terrifically helpful in training our staff person so we would be able to update and maintain the site on a regular basis. With Julie’s help, we were able to make the site work for us and address some critical business and informational needs”

– Pat Mac Donell, Executive Director, Holland Area Arts Council

“I needed to create a website to showcase my designs and illustrations. As a graphic designer by training but one with no website design knowledge, I wanted to find someone who was not only creative and meticulous but had a vast knowledge of web design. Julie was the answer to my search! In addition to being a warm and wonderful person, she is also really savvy when it comes to creating “your look” for the web. I was a client who wanted everything “just so” and Julie was very understanding of this. She made me feel that any comment I had, large or small, was valued. It was a wonderful collaboration between client and designer and I would not hesitate to work with her again and recommend her to all!”

– Janet Holmes, Owner, Skeeterlegs Design House

“There are SO many web site designers out there, but there’s only ONE Julie Abel! Julie has such a satisfying mix of creativity, communication skills, and business smarts. She is a terrific listener, and ‘gets’ the business side of what we (her client) are all about. She never loses sight of OUR purpose as a business, and gets lost within HER purpose (the web site). Because of this insight, she recommended changes that enhanced our business, through tools we didn’t know about, applied to the web site. On top of all this, she is professional and a genuine pleasure to work with.”

– Robert Clark, Owner, Clark & Clark Specialty Products, Inc.

“As a first time, small business owner I needed to work with someone who listened to my needs and could capture what I was trying to accomplish. Julie met with me in my shop so that she could get a flavor of what my business and I were all about. She listened carefully to my needs and worked closely with me to develop a website that gives web customers an excellent perspective of what my business is. I enjoyed the experience of working with Julie Abel, JabberDesign and highly recommend her services”

– Michael Ross, Owner, Urban Cottage of Saugatuck

“When we were preparing to revise our website, we interviewed several designers in addition to JabberDesign. We were drawn to Julie Abel by the clarity her design work and decided to engage her. In addition to her excellent graphics, she was easy to work with in every instance, open to listening to client ideas and quick to translate them into new design ideas. Her knowledge of the dynamics of Website marketing was endlessly helpful. The entire experience of working with Julie, from beginning to end, was a pleasure.”

– Robert Rosen, President, MPD Foundation

“JabberDesign didn’t just copy the materials we provided – they spent considerable time learning about our non-profit; what we do and why we do it. That time shows in the quality and depth of our website. If this is the one way we communicate with the public, JabberDesign has captured our most important messages and provided a medium of which we can be proud.”

– Theresa Chimner, Executive Director, Allegan County Community Foundation

“Julie Abel of JabberDesign has been amazing. Almost through intuition she knows what we want and or need in respect to our web designs and maintenance. She has gone way above norm and been very attentive to our webs success.”

– Dick Waskin, Douglas Design District Representative

Designing our website with Julie was a pleasure. She does an excellent job of interpreting the needs and ideas of her clients and transforming them into an Internet marketing plan.”

JabberDesign helped us create an attractive and informative website that has benefited our company and increased our client base. Plus, Julie made the process easy and fun!”

Marti Meersman, Vice President, Sales & Marketing, Strawberry Fields Catering

“JabberDesign worked with our office staff and many others to grasp the key elements that we needed to include in our website, so that the right information would be made available to our residents. We receive compliments on our new website on a daily basis”

– Chris Roerig, Saugatuck Township Trustee

“Our thanks go out to Julie Abel of JabberDesign for her expertise in capturing the essence of our business in a visually creative format making the process a most enjoyable experience.”

– Barry Jeter and Walter “the Wonderful,” Owners

“What a pleasure it was working with Julie [Abel] – like creating a giant collaborative painting – something I never would have expected to enjoy (collaborating – that is) but she was doing all of the hard stuff. The main thing was to emphasize the work, which was beautifully done….She has a genius for understanding visual ideas, which is what artists are always trying to do, but their view is usually a solitary one.”

“I am happy that I chose JabberDesign….Julie [Abel] found a good balance between making suggestions and listening to my ideas….It is a very good presentation of my artwork.”

– Laura Wyss

“In business courses one is told “There are no problems, there are only opportunities;” setting up a web presence felt like an “insurmountable opportunity” until we found Jabberdesign! Thanks, Julie. We love our web site! It pays to work with a professional.”

“Julie Abel…has a terrific sense of color and design, and is easy to work with. I’m thrilled with the outcome and would recommend JabberDesign to anyone.”

– Eddie Parach, Owner
