Testimonials

Happy clients say the nicest things about Nigel Gordijk's Common Sense Design

We recently had our website redesigned by Nigel at Common Sense Design and are very pleased with the end result. Our existing website was outdated, didn't work with mobile devices, and was not as visually appealing as we wanted it to be. As a landscaping company, we wanted our website to be very visually attractive to show off our unique designs and display our photos in a modern yet classic manner. Nigel came up with several options for us and worked patiently with us while we made decisions and asked many questions! He was friendly and made himself available to meet our busy schedule. Thanks Nigel for the great results!

Sarah and Erin, Gaia's Gardens www.gaiasgardens.ca

On behalf of the Board members and staff at ICC, we would like to extend a sincere thanks to Nigel for his amazing work on our website. Working with Nigel was smooth and effortless. He was very accommodating and offered great ideas and suggestions. We would highly recommend working with Nigel if you need to create a website, or your existing website needs a bit of updating. Thanks again for your amazing work!

It has been a pleasure working with Nigel on a redesign of our website. He was able to suggest professional, yet cost effective, design changes and was available for support throughout the whole process. Nigel was able to explain the more technical aspects of the project in a non-technical language that was easy to understand. Thank you for your help, Nigel!

Nigel from Common Sense Design has created for the Christmas JOY Home Tour (a fundraising event for HOPE House in downtown Guelph), a website that has allowed us to continually change and grow, giving us the tools to navigate the world of online event promotion. Nigel's dedication to his clients is evident in his prompt and timely responses to our ever evolving website needs. He supports our team by equipping us with the knowledge to make changes and adjustments, giving us the confidence to manage our own website. It has been a pleasure to work with Nigel for the past few years and we look forward to the future!

Nigel’s work on our website was exemplary; from his design and construction ideas, to bearing with us whilst we took time to be sure about our decisions. He has a very thoughtful approach and was always practical. I loved the online lightbox, where we swapped ideas and the site began to come to life for me. Nigel was instrumental not just in creating a new website, but in developing the online personality of the company and we are delighted with the results!

"Nigel...provides great direction and has a high-level strategy for the overall experience."

This being the first website that I've had a hand in building, Nigel was so very informative every step of the way. He gave me all the necessary information up front, which allowed me to make informed design choices. He handled my copious amounts a changes with a smile and in the end we have ourselves a website that reflects our vision. Nigel always responds in a timely manner, which is so very important to us. I would not hesitate to recommend Nigel and Common Sense Design for any of his services.

Nigel contacted me when, through the small town grapevine, he learned that I was building a Wilmot Township chapter of 100 Women Who Care. He offered to do the website design gratis - given its mandate - but due to the subsequent donation of a 100 Women who Care Wilmot sponsor I was able to modestly pay him. Nigel’s generosity was in the spirit of the 100 Women concept and we are greatly in his debt for that. He did a great job of designing the site as a bonus. Thank you, thank you, Nigel.

Nigel, it is such a pleasure doing business with you! Denise and I are thrilled to have found a designer that is so easy to work with, efficient and affordable. We’ve finally found someone who listens to what we want to see, researches our options and provides advice and ideas helpful to our business. We’ve already learned so much from you, and I think you from us and we look forward to many years together.

You’re prompt, knowledgeable, experienced and have the wittiest sense of humour! Thanks for taking care of our website and letting us do what we know best – growing and selling plants.

Nigel Gordijk's work for our organization is always creative and attractive, portraying the exact message that we want it to inspire. He completes the job in record time, with highly competitive prices, and we feel that his work is truly superior.

Nancy Knowles, London Pro Musica Choir

After several missteps and outrageous quotes from other web designers, we found Nigel at Common Sense Design. Not only was Nigel affordable, he was courteous and professional at all times, and most importantly, got us up and running in record time. He implemented a design we supplied, which he followed accurately, took direction easily, and made helpful improvements (all very rare qualities among web developers, in my experience). I look forward to working with CSD again.

I’d recommend Common Sense to you; its only common sense to work with Nigel!

Richard von Erlac, Marketing Director, Better World Plant Food

Nigel is, frankly, brilliant at what he does. He's done several websites for organizations with which I am involved -- newhamburglive.ca, joyoftravel.ca, paulknowles.ca -- and has also carried out a number of graphic design assignments I have been connected with. Always better than good, always on time, always creative and dynamic. Couldn't recommend him more highly.
