Atmosphere Websites, in the form of Sierra, Kate and Mike, delivered a site that is far beyond my dreams! As a debut children’s book author, I need a site that can serve as my calling card to everyone from editors to booksellers to librarians to readers. Kate began by taking a decidedly un-beautiful sketch I made and turning it into dazzling artwork that somehow was more “me” than anything I came up with myself! Sierra and Mike were inspired and thoughtful, fast and responsive, creative and willing to solve each knotty question or problem I brought up. The result is a site that does everything I need, and does it far more beautifully than I could have imagined. I strongly recommend them to anyone looking for great design and great service.

Working with Sierra and Mike on the redesign of the Contemporary Romance Chapter’s website was a wonderful experience. They were professional and pleasant at all times. They listened to and addressed any concerns I had. And they answered (my numerous) questions, taking the time to explain anything I didn’t understand and share their insights when I wasn’t sure about a detail or feature. The chapter is very satisfied with our website and would highly recommend Atmosphere Websites.

It was a pleasure to work with Mike and Sierra. Between his technical know-how and her creative designs, they created a website that was perfect for me! They were professional, thorough, and responded to my many, many questions in a timely manner. I highly recommend them and would not hesitate to use them again.

I want to thank you guys for building me such a seriously brilliant website! I’ve had so many compliments on how great it looks, and I’m certain it’s become the object of seething jealousy! The thing is, I knew I needed my author site to function as a professional gateway, and I knew I wanted it to look like ME, but what Atmosphere did was over and above what I expected. You knew just what features to include and thought of things that hadn’t even occurred to me. I especially appreciated all the follow-up when I had questions and the attention to detail to get the site just right—not to mention the way you walked me through the set-up and explained everything clearly so I could maintain the site on my own. Thank you, thank you. I’m so happy!

In March of this year I contacted Mike Chen and Sierra Fong through one of their internet postings. My company was looking for a new website and I was struggling with an existing company that was simply not performing after several months.Mike was very quick to respond and I was thrilled to find that both he and Sierra offer a wide range of services and that we could complete everything needed with their company alone. We contracted their services to do a new website, including new written biographies, a new logo and a complete new design. The process could not have gone any better as they quoted a one month turnaround for the website and they wound up doing much more than the website all before the one month time table.I have worked with many companies over my 20 year career, but I can say that Mike and Sierra are definitely at the top of the list. Their communication was outstanding and it alleviated all the concerns I had from the previous company that I had them take over for. I would rate them both as a 10+ to work with.Our entire staff is very happy with the website and the level of service that Mike and Sierra provided. We would recommend them to anyone who is looking to setup a website or integrate different features into an existing website. You will be in good hands with these two!”

“I LOVE IT” – That’s what I said when Sierra Fong revealed my new website to me. It’s everything I could have hoped for and more. Sierra and Mike are true professionals. Sierra has a great eye, she made a point of understanding my business, who I am, my aesthetics (she designed my logo too) and what I need prospective clients to garner from my site. They both kept an eye on the budget and the schedule. Sierra and Mike were honest, thorough and really easy people to work with. I feel so lucky to have a site I love. Even better, within one day of re-launching my site, I had at least 5 clients email me and tell me how much they loved it too…without even soliciting feedback. I recommend them to anyone looking for a new site or branding.

A custom-designed website seemed like such an extravagance for my very small business, but then I took a look at the competition and their dull, busy, obviously templated sites and realized that a custom design was exactly what I needed. Sierra took the time to bring together backgrounds, images, and fonts into a configuration that perfectly reflects my services and professional ethos. She worked with me patiently and uncomplainingly to ensure that every detail was correct. Mike then used her artistic vision to build a sleek, intuitive site that seamlessly directs visitors to the information they need. I wholeheartedly recommend this smart, insightful, and creative team. They can put together an effective, visually stunning site for any type of business.

Sierra and Mike of Atmosphere Design are a website design-and-build dream team. With utmost patience, designer Sierra took the time to get to know me, and together we teased out a vision. Thanks to the efforts of Sierra, and that of site builder/magician Mike, I now have a website that is unique, easy to navigate, and accurately reflects my author brand.I never tire of hearing how much everyone loves my website. But the best compliment I’ve received so far came from a long-time friend who claimed that the website looked like me. Well done, Sierra and Mike!

Sierra and Mike make a great team where they design a one of a kind website, pulling from the personality and voice of the writer. Mike takes care of the tech side while Sierra works with the client’s needs, figuring out the individual elements to make the site unique. Their service is excellent and friendly and I would highly recommend their work.

I had one of those websites that was very user un-friendly! Since I operate vacation rentals and rentals, I needed to update information frequently. Even though the former webmaster said my site should be user friendly, it wasn’t. I’d often be emailing him to ask him why what I was doing didn’t work, or how do I fix this or that. All quite frustrating. That said, I was really ready for a change!When I approached Sierra about doing my website she was excited about doing it for me and not only making my site user-friendly but bringing it up to date. She and Mike went to work on it. As they finished each step they would call or email me and get my response. On several occasions I asked for changes; they were very responsive to my changes and did them gladly. I can update my calendar myself; I can change rates easily; I can add pictures so easily too and I’m very comfortable with making these changes. I am so glad I hired Sierra and Mike.Thank you both so much for making a website that looks good and is one I can be proud of for my business.

I believe Sierra and Mike did a great job with my CPA firm website. Sierra quickly came up with an unique design that I really liked. Mike added an excellent contact form and other technical parts to the website.
