Here’s a comment from a friend of the owner of the johndore.com website when the site first went live a couple years ago. I no longer maintain the website, but I developed the design, chose the graphics, layed-out the pages, edited the content, did basic SEO, etc.
“I love the website! It’s beautifully designed, very inviting and with great content. I’ve done a lot of website work over the past 4 years… The color, layout, navigation, and graphic of the night sky combine for the most appealing design I’ve seen in a looonnnnng time. It is elegant in it’s simplicity, meaningful, and repeats themes beautifully. The photos are really well chosen and augment meaning both clearly and subtly while providing something interesting for the eye. All of this combined with the color choices produce an overall effect that is calming and inviting and hopeful, with just a wee bit of gravitas thrown in. Like “There’s important stuff here, but we don’t go overboard.” In your writing/content, your services sound so inviting and real, you sound so grounded and trustworthy. Really well done. Wow – this is really a brilliant entry into the wild and wooly web. Kudos and a big hug of congratulations!” – Jordan
