Happy Clients

  • “Be Better Studios’ web designers were friendly, fair with pricing, easy to work with, and they answered my questions quickly and clearly. I appreciated how Amy and Ethan made an effort to truly understand both my business and my aesthetic in order to develop a clear interface for my website’s visitors. I also valued their efforts to maximize my site’s potential, including SEO strategies, even weeks after its launch.”

    ELIZABETH AVERY, FOUNDER AVERY NUTRITION

  • “I am thrilled with my new site! Amy and Ethan, you did an amazing job. I’m not well versed in the technical side of the internet so my main request was to have a site that was easy to use. EASY! Something straightforward and bold. BeBetterStudios came through with flying colors, including troubleshooting every issue that came up. I’m recommending them to all my writer friends.”

    CHRIS EVANS, AUTHOR

  • “Be Better Studios has been an invaluable creative resource in helping the Cranberry Marketing Committee to get U.S.-grown cranberries “Top of Mind” year round. From summer recipe cards to new packaging for our dried cranberry sample packets and more, we now have the ability to promote the great versatility of America’s Original Superfruit.”

    ANNA WACLAWICZEK, COMMUNICATIONS DIRECTOR, CRANBERRY MARKETING COMMITTEE

  • “I began working with Be Better Studios in July 2013. At that time, I was looking to develop a company logo. They took the time to understand Nightingale Apps as a company and I was thoroughly impressed with the final design. Since then, we have developed the Nightingale Apps’ company website and other marketing materials. The website is fantastic and impressive to our visitors and us as a company. Overall, Amy and Ethan are talented individuals who are attentive, effective, and very professional with their clients.”

    TIFFANY KELLY, FOUNDER NIGHTINGALE APPS

  • “Amy and Ethan are a truly incredible team. They worked with me to conceptualize, design, and implement my site – and created an extraordinary end result. I've gotten many a complement from chance visitors on the beautiful lay-out and seamless design. But perhaps even more important is the knowledge that I can continue to reach out to them at any point with any problems, questions, or feedback, even now, several years after the site first launched. And, quite simply, they are always a pleasure to work with.”

    MARIA KONNIKOVA, AUTHOR

  • “Be Better Studios worked tirelessly to tailor our website to fit—and to exceed—our vision. They brought many exciting, new ideas to the table in each round. From design to programming, every element was handcrafted with the brewery in mind. I am beyond impressed with the finished product. I wholeheartedly raise my glass to them!”

    IAN MCCONNELL, FOUNDER BANDED HORN BREWING COMPANY

  • “We have worked with Be Better Studios since the start of our Beta program in 2011. Since then the website has undergone many iterations, including a new site launch prior to the GA launch of our product in late 2012. The Be Better Studio team did a wonderful job working with us throughout the design and implementation phases of the site. They are a highly professional team, which prides itself of delivering high quality results in a timely fashion. I would recommend them to any prospect looking for a high-impact, user-friendly website.”
