Trelowarren

Trelowarren

I have worked with Melinda on a number of websites but this was by far the biggest and most complex one so far. Trelowarren is a large family owned historic estate in Cornwall, UK and has numerous arms to its business – tourism, property, leisure and timeshare to name a few. To add to the complexity of the business came the added complexity of being in different timezones. As always, Melinda was a pleasure to work with, the design is beautiful and just what we were hoping for, the navigation and solutions to our own line business needs were well thought out and delivered and the timezone issue never once caused in problem (in fact maybe it made things easier). We love the outcome of this project and I would not work with anyone else on web builds! Melinda’s work is awesome. -- Keren Cooksey

Catherine Bateson

Catherine Bateson

I am delighted with the website Melinda Dean designed and built for me – it was such an unexpectedly easy process and I feel both as though I have a product that I absolutely love and the tools to work on it myself, adding to it as need arises. Min’s instructions are detailed and clear and she’s always been prompt at answering any queries. Her original brief was to work with some design elements that were already in place and she’s done that beautifully, transforming an ‘in- construction’ website (which had been in construction for some years!) into a professional site which reflects both my personality and my work. I’d heartily recommend Min Dean – fabulous communication, design flair and reasonable rates – what more can you ask for? -- Catherine Bateson

Empowered Futures

Empowered Futures

I have worked with Min now on two websites both for organisations working within the disability sector. She was amazing to work with and understood our needs well which is reflected in the final products. Min listened to my requests, explained things in plain language and checked in at every step to make sure I was happy. The fact that I used her for the second site says it all. Happy I was! I would recommend her services to anyone seeking an interactive and high impact website especially to those who are not quite sure where to start. She is delightful to work with and made the whole process very easy and painless. Thanks Heaps Min. -- Brett Swann

The Slipstream

The Slipstream

Min set up my slipstream author blog site two years ago. I am something of a Luddite and my ideas about what I wanted were clear but hard to explain- harder still because I did not know the capacities of a site. Min led me patiently through possibilities and then explained and guided me with incredible patience and charm through the process of creating the look and capacities I wanted based on a concept that she enabled me to focus. She has an encyclopaedic knowledge of what is being done with the form and was able to direct me to this or that site to help me articulate what I wanted. Once I had decided she worked with me as she set up the site explaining to me how to work this or that aspect. I really enjoyed being drawn in and to having someone so willing to teach me how operate my site - I was a slow plodding learner but under her guidance I managed it and I can't say how wonderful it is or only to have this beautiful and responsive blog site but to be able to manage it myself.
Two years later I don't want a single thing done to it - it is perfectly shaped and constructed not only to make it easy to post there but it is actually enticing so that I am always wanting to go there. I would thoroughly recommend Min if you are willing and keen to avail yourself of her skills and guidance. -- Isobelle Carmody

Pterodactyl Helicopters

Pterodactyl Helicopters

I have been working with Melinda for over 10 years in the development and ongoing maintenance of our web site and the integration of SEO strategies. The SEO work was not only in relation to the web content but also on our peripheral activity that makes the Google engine work for us. To this end we are on page one of a google search for our major keyword searches. All this is done organically and not through paid ads, which saves us heaps in AdWords dollars.
I would be more than happy to recommend her and her company in any web development work you might have. -- Captain Mike Jarvis

EBook Revolution

EBook Revolution

Min is a lot more than a web-developer, she has an amazing eye for detail and design. Not only did she code up my whole website to perfection (in almost 8 months I have never had a problem with it!) but she was the one who helped me create a unified branding on my platform that has seen me expand my business from online to physical appearances. Min is quick, efficient, and just made the process easy. I highly recommend her services. -- Emily Craven

I had no idea what I wanted when I approached Min to redevelop my website. Min was patient and creative in her endeavour to bring a vision alive for me, and was so amazing and on point with the final product. As the website was built, the communication flowed effortlessly, with all my idea's put into place, and feedback with how the website was shaping up.
I am so thrilled with the end result, it turned out even better then I thought it would of.
I would highly recommend Min for future projects. -- Michelle Little
