testimonials

Stephanie Wilson, Vista Verde Ranch

Working in the field of hospitality, we pour our hearts and souls out every day to deliver exceptional service to our guests. You can only imagine that I have very high expectations for the vendors who work with the ranch. Marion consistently delivers the same top notch service that I expect of myself and our staff. It is wonderful to be on the receiving end of that genuine and prompt service. The other trait I appreciate about Marion is that she is great at creative thinking and problem solving. At the same time, she completely respects the opinions of her clients, and doesn’t take it personally when we don’t like a direction she’s suggesting. She listens, takes the time to understand what we want and then turns around and knocks it out of the park. With Marion at the helm, blue sky designs has put the Vista Verde Ranch website at the top of the list. [ visit vistaverde.com ]

Bev Jackson, Deer Valley Ranch

Our ranch wanted a new look in a revamped website. After researching various website developers, we chose Marion at blue sky designs. From start to finish, Marion was a joy to work with: professional yet personable, prompt yet patient. New to WordPress, I had a multitude of questions both major and minor. Marion patiently and personally answered each and every one. She was always readily available and her response time was lighting fast. In a world of what can be an impersonal, big business approach to website development, Marion is more of a partner in the process of creating an effective, professional website. We are very pleased with our awesome, new site and Marion was an important part of its creation and launching. I highly recommend Marion and look forward to her being our go-to person when it comes to all things behind-the-scenes of our website. [ visit deervalleyranch.com ]

I had a very positive experience working with Marion on a new web design for our rescue site. Being a total novice in this field I found that Marion was readily available to answer my questions and allay my concerns in a professional and timely manner. She was extremely patient with my many questions. She helped to design a new site that was user friendly both for our volunteers and the general public. I highly recommend Marion and Blue Sky Designs! [ visit bscarescue.org/ ]

Nickey Andrew, Colors Are Magic

I was new to town and needed someone to help remodel my site. I stumbled upon Marion after a Google search… and I’m so thankful that I did. Besides just being a wonderful person, she has been a dream to work with, and her service and support are incredible. Marion also has a great creative eye, which I appreciated as an artist. I would not hesitate to work with her again in the future or recommend her to all. [ visit colorsaremagic.com/ ]

Jane Van Berkum, Rainbow Trout Ranch

We found Marion through a referral and we are so glad we did!  She has been excellent to work with.  She always gets right back to you if you don’t get her right away (which is seldom) and I have enjoyed all our interactions.  She has done some excellent side work on our main website as well as developing satellite sites for us.  We started with Marion last year, and this year we had our best year ever.  It could be coincidence but I think it is unlikely.   I absolutely recommend Marion and Blue Sky Designs.

Rich Avery

Marion has been absolutely great to work with – we have contracted with her to create an updated website for us which looks absolutely awesome. Also, in the mean time, we have had numerous issues with our existing hosting company and Marion got us re-hosted with a new company and we had absolutely no issues with the transition and we have had no problems with our website availability since then. Finally Marion stepped in and helped an employee of ours make some minors changes on another website and went out of her way to make sure our employee understood how everything was structured and how to make the changes. Working with Marion has been fabulous and I would recommend her very highly.

Stacen Jones, Urological Associates

I truly enjoyed working with Marion. She was prompt and prepared for our initial meeting to discuss our new website. She was very knowledgeable on website design and assisted us with ideas for creating a site that would best serve our patient population. After the website was built and activated she was very accessible to assist in minor adjustments that our site may have needed at no cost to us. I would highly recommend Marion to any business that is looking to create a website or update their existing website. [ visit urologicalassoc.com ]

Ashley Blyth, Peisner Johnson

I’m thrilled with blue sky designs. Marion delivered our new website on time and in budget. And then she continued to over-deliver! After building our new site design on WordPress, Marion continued to explore and implement new tools to achieve the desired functionality of our website. The new site is so vastly improved in design, functionality, and ease of use! Marion is personable and fun to work with while being reliable and professional. I don’t hesitate to recommend blue sky designs, and I’d work with Marion again any chance I could.

Heather Green, WAG Agility

We are very fortunate Blue Sky Designs was recommended to us by another club. Marion has been a joy to work with. Even before we signed on with her as our designer, she was very patient and gracious with her time in regard to clarifying any questions or concerns we had about the services she provides. Early into our engagement, she went above and beyond to show us some sample mock-ups when our committee had trouble visualizing which design template would best suit our site refresh. Marion excels at explaining technical concepts and quickly provides detailed answers and solutions to any questions or issues that arise. [ visit wagagility.com ]

Kevin Johnson, Rail Service Group

Marion is a true professional. She has all the technical skills and knowledge base anyone with web development requirements could ever need. But, just as importantly, she listens well and seeks to truly understand her clients needs and custom designs their sites rather than producing cookie-cutter results. She is available to her clients, responsive to their requests, and meets deadlines very well. You will appreciate her ability to explain complex concepts in design and development in a simple way. We also greatly appreciate her ongoing support and contact. [ visit railservicegroup.com ]

Karen Moore, Hickman Trailer

I have been working with Marion from blue sky designs for over five years now and the service, support and expertise is out of this world. She has helped me determine how to work pull many different solutions into one comprehensive website. When I say this I have a shopping cart solution that works with my Point of Sale software so I only have to update my inventory in one place and it automatically shows up on my website and a widget from a Hitch Manufacturer so hitches can be looked up and purchased on my website. She worked with them and she helped me get the SEO on both that portion of my site and my main site to where we are ranking no lower than 3rd on all of our major key words in our geographic location.

If I have a request and I don’t have all the technical information, she will go above and beyond to get the answers so we can get the requirement implemented. She has also done many creative projects for us including website design and logo design with wonderful results. Anything you request of blue sky designs and Marion Zachary, rest assured you will get fast and quality results!  [ visit hickmantrailer.com ]

Brett Cullen, television and movie actor

“I have been working with Blue Sky Designs since 1998 and have found Marion Zachary to be the most helpful and cooperative web designer in the business. Blue Sky Designs has won at least two online web awards for its design of my web site and Marion has always been a complete joy to work with. I give her the highest marks for her creativity and her strong commitment in her work and in her work ethic. If i could ask her to do more for me I couldn’t because she already has done it. She is always one step ahead of me and is a quintessential professional. I can’t recommend her enough.”

Kathe Skinner, Being Heard Now

Marion is the rare web designer that does what our business has needed for so long: she seamlessly bridges the gap between technical and creative. That Marion “speaks our language” has enabled the translation of what we wanted our site to say with what it does. From a purely business perspective, Blue Sky is responsive , accessible, and gives value for every dollar charged. She makes BeingHeard a superstar, but she’s the real one here.

“Marion excels in several areas, when I first started working with her I knew she was outstanding in the use of Word Press, but I shortly discovered that she has excellent talents in content design and hard code programming and how it can best fit into the Word Press tools. It is and has been an outstanding experience to work with a designer that will not just take what you want done, but provide better ideas and alternatives that will save time and money. I would recommend her to any of my work colleagues and business acquaintances.” [ visit acceleratedwealth.com ]

Elizabeth Brooks, Paw Pals Pet Dog Training

“I have had an excellent, ongoing experience with Marion Zachary and blue sky designs. I first met with her in 2006 when she became my client for training with her dog. When I discovered that she was a web designer, I jumped at the opportunity for her to build me a website for my dog training business. I am extremely grateful to her for taking me on as a client, as I was essentially clueless as to how to approach developing a professional business website. Marion has always conducted herself in a professional manner and addressed any of my concerns or issues immediately. She is very enjoyable to work with as she is not only a professional, but also maintains a sense of humor. I intend to continue to work with her. I feel very fortunate to have met her and engaged her services as my website designer.”

Marsha Butler, Doug Butler Enterprises, Inc.

“Although we never met Marion in person, it felt like she was sitting right beside us in the work she did redesigning our websites. She was very meticulous, yet took the time to explain things clearly about what she was doing. Her later training in how to navigate WordPress was very helpful. She’s been willing to answer questions even after completing her initial work and always has made adequate time to do so. Marion, thanks for helping us in your ever patient way.” [ visit dougbutler.com ]

“What a creation!’ We were extremely pleased with not only Marion’s professional approach to assisting us overhauling our existing website, but with her artistic creativity and enthusiasm! Her willingness to accept our challenges, coupled with her professionalism and cooperative “can do” attitude earned her many laudatory comments from the corporate management staff. Ki was fortunate to find a web developer of this caliber to uphold and epitomize our standards of excellence. Blue Sky Designs is very resourceful and the creative ideas for presenting our company were inventive and astonishingly effective. During the time we worked with Marion, she has distinguished herself as a conscientious and energetic pioneer in the web development arena. It was certainly a pleasure to have had the opportunity to work with Marion of Blue Sky Designs, and we’re certainly looking forward to a long relationship.”
