I highly recommend Mr. Fred Elbel, web designer and consultant, as to his exceptional work in creating my new website How to Live a Life of Adventure. Key points to his excellence:

* Mr. Elbel worked with me personally to make sure he understood my needs and my vision of the website.
* He created an attractive and attention-grabbing home page that exceeded my expectations.
* He worked with me as to the different sections and what needed to be addressed on the site, i.e., photo gallery, contact, about the author, about the book, video presentation, articles and much more.
* Mr. Elbel painstakingly guided me through the website to make sure I understood how it operated and how I could add to it.
* He offered ideas that improved it that I didn't "see" but once he presented alternatives, I understood his wisdom in making changes.
* Finally, he brought it to life by editing my video presentation and adding it to YouTube and my website to increase visitor viewing and interest.
* I appreciate his excellence in making my website sparkle with energy and the theme which I needed to express.

If you have any questions, visit my website and leave a question. I will answer it and provide further information on Mr. Fred Elbels' exceptional website design and customer follow-up.

"As a practical matter, web designers must bridge a universal communications gap.

Expectations are communicated through the indecisive medium of language and perhaps a few awkward hand gestures. Concepts are easily 'lost in translation.'

The prospects for misconstruction were palpable when Mr. Elbel was asked to create a web design in honor of one of the leading ethicists of the 20th century. As a founding member of the Garrett Hardin Society, we knew the art of web design would be put to the test in the Garrett Hardin Society website.

Mr. Elbel's expressive format, portrayal, and videos of Hardin are succinct, colorful, informative, engaging, and respectful."

"Earlier this year I hired Fred Elbel to remodel my ancient website LimitsToGrowth.org into a blog. I had news articles and commentary organized by month which had created rather large files. Although they were unwieldy, I didn't want to lose the information from those files. Fred set up the website to include the older archives along with the blog software.

I have been thrilled with the result overall. It is easy to use and looks great design-wise. Plus Fred has always been helpful and responsive to my various questions about fine-tuning."

"Fred Elbel put up my site, after I supplied information--which was all the help I could give him. Fortunately, Fred has done this many times, and led me through the choices and options with skill and sensitivity. Naturally, my saintly Mother and I like my new site very, very much, but that was the easy part. I have received comments from old friends and former students who found the site (and in some cases found me after many years, through the site), and virtually all complimented the website. Well, they were really complimenting Fred."

"For the past six years, Mr. Fred Elbel created and maintained my two major web sites. His expertise, creative guidance and outstanding computer background presented to a public of millions of Americans the exact message I trumpet. He worked closely with me to bring the public a straightforward, clear and easy to navigate web site. Additionally, he updates those web sites to make them the most sought after as to search engines and availability. With the many choices for web designers, I highly recommend Fred Elbel to answer all your Internet needs."
