what our clients say about us…

Isabelle Giroux n.d.

What to say about Shoi and her amazing work ethic… she is simply amazing. She takes time to listen, understand, and create our vision. Plus, she makes sure we understand the process, the how-to, and the after-the-fact.

Not only do I have a beautiful website, logo, colours, images, etc., but the essence of my website is exactly what I want to share as my own personal gifts in the world. Thank you Shoi-Yean for making a big project seamless and empowering!

I couldn’t be happier and I 100% recommend her and her amazing staff.

Celeste Mattingly, LCSW

Iam joyously shouting from the rooftops that I finally found a fantastic website developer and designer that I am over the top thrilled with! Shoi of Design by Shoi is a rare gem in a sea of wannabes and hackers. She and her team have turned out to be everything they claimed themselves to be and then some!

It’s a wonderful experience to work with a professional who makes spiritual principles and values her priority. She is truly a spiritual entrepreneur who sincerely signs her emails with xoxo! And it’s a joy to be able to respond in kind — xoxox, Shoi!

Jacyntha Kamor

Shoi is a dream to work with. I’d been following Shoi’s gorgeous FB posts—her explorations in beauty and color—for a couple of years and knew I wanted her to design my next website. From the beginning, her manner and communication were always extremely clear and helpful. Her design sense is exquisite. She was also patient and understanding when I was occasionally stressed over details and choices. Not only was the process smooth and supportive, but I’m thrilled with the outcome.

I get so many compliments from viewers. Even my techie friends are impressed with the quality. Thank you, thank you, Shoi, for all your work, for the quality of your presence, and for your great care and skill!!

Shoi is a visionary! She is the epitome of timeless and exquisite designs. She renders results that capture one’s essence and desired intention beyond imagination. I cannot express enough how I love my product logo designs! They are Perfection!

Because Shoi is about detail and beauty, she is able to manifest and refine ideas from her core creative instinct. Shoi is ultimately about elevating your VALUE. She delivers world class service with grace!

Caroline Anaya, MS

You have been a trusted friend guiding me through the dark and scary Internet Marketing forest. I appreciate you more than I can convey.

Nine years ago I was searching for someone to help me get my new business up and running online: a designer who could give me flair and a welcoming presence. I found Shoi. She has been my everything designer ever since.

Shoi created all the tools I’ve needed or wanted: a brand, logo, 2 websites, a newsletter, a blog and unique covers for my 2 books. She guided my efforts to learn how to best use these tools. In addition, and importantly, Shoi is professional, punctual, patient and relatable… a blessing in my life.

Alyse Rynor, LCSW

Ihave used Shoi for two logos and they are both beautiful. She’s not only skilled at creating beauty in branding, but her lovely personality shined through as we worked together.

I hope anyone wishing to brand their business from logo to website, and especially if you are a solo-preneur take a look at her work.

Karena Virginia

Shoi is one of those exceptional people who shares her gifts of creativity with a grace beyond words. I feel grateful to work with such a lovely woman who has a soft and sensitive heart like I do.

Her work matches her love for others in detail and expertise. Everything is top notch.

Leigh Cronin

You are an absolute joy to work with. I am thrilled beyond words with how beautiful my website turned out. You were quick to respond to any questions I had and you got things done even before you promised them. Your intuitive nature is evident in your work.

As soon as we began working together I knew that I could trust you completely to create magic with my website, business cards, and headers. I can’t say enough wonderful things about you. Your attention to detail is amazing!

Amy Allen Meyer, M.Ed,

Shoi was so pleasant to work with and besides that, she is very good at what she does! She listened to my ideas, understood what I wanted to achieve and brought it all to fruition.

She delivered when she said she was going to, sometimes even ahead of schedule. She walked me through the process, step by step, which made my job easy. I am very satisfied with the project.

Lee Gaitan

Not only is Shoi a fabulous designer and artist, she must be psychic as well for the uncanny ability she has to produce an actual image of a vision that only exists in the client’s mind. She designed the cover of my upcoming book and it is receiving rave reviews from all who have seen it.

Working with her was a complete delight. She is the consummate professional, with a great eye for composition and detail. She kept me in the loop during the entire design process and always delivered everything she promised. In truth, she over-delivered, producing four possible cover designs so on-target that it was nearly impossible to choose among them.

Most important of all, she listened to me to understand exactly the “look” I wanted for my cover and she made suggestions to refine my vision. I cannot recommend Shoi, her team and the work they produce highly enough.

Ihave known and worked with Shoi for many years. She has always been charming, approachable and very professional. Her warm manner helps draw out clients’ needs and values, so that the end results are rich, congruent, meaningful and very compelling. Her designs are gorgeous, with a highly-developed colour sense that is organic and harmonious.

She is a joy to work with, and her portfolio speaks for itself. I highly recommend entrusting your designs to Shoi.

Jodi Hassler, PC

Working with Shoi was a pleasure. Her ability to create a website that reflected exactly what I had asked for was truly remarkable. Shoi was extremely responsive, patient with my limited knowledge of the workings of a website and beautifully creative.

I would strongly recommend Shoi to anyone who is interested in building a website or needing any of the other services that she provides. It was an honor to work with her.

Kathryn Weber

What an absolute delight you are to work with! You live up to your promise. Your website says “customers are treated like valued friends”. And you do treat people that way. Kudos to you for doing business with kindness.

Anne Sagendorph-Moon

Shoi is not just a great designer, she is a profound designer. What sets her apart from any other web or graphic designer is her intuitive ability to really deeply get who you are and reflect that in color and style on a website and marketing materials.

She is so easy to work with, so clear in her communication. You will love her and so will your brand.

Kelly Lefevre

There is only one web designer I will recommend and that’s Shoi. I have worked with Shoi on at least 13 comprehensive projects already and every time she seems to know exactly what I want. Even when I have trouble describing or explaining my concepts, she intuitively knows what it is that I am looking for.

Shoi also consistently provides what I call “anticipatory customer service”. Not only is she an expert troubleshooter, she asks powerful questions to make my projects even more effective. If you want beautifully artistic and extremely effective design services, don’t hesitate to contact Shoi.

Molly Luffy, MBA

Having worked with other web designers over the last 8 years, I can confidently say that Shoi is by far the most talented, ethical and professional person I’ve ever met in her industry.

She is also very easy to work with and makes the process pleasant. I highly recommend Shoi!

Margaret Ann Kellogg, LCSW

My new site is beautiful. Thank you so much Shoi. Your work is amazing. Feminine, love the colors, love the feel of my new site. So representative of me. Really nice job as usual.

Thank you again from the bottom of my heart. You make me look so good.

Patrice & John Robson

You are the ultimate professional, doing everything possible to know who we are and what we want, and to provide that for us. An exceptional communicator, you kept us informed every step of the way and you also easily met every deadline. We wanted beauty and you created exactly that, with every piece.

Not only are you a superb designer, you also understand the technical web requirements, and this is often lacking in web designers. Receiving a design from you was like receiving a precious gift — to be unwrapped and savoured. You’ve become a dear friend. And, in our opinion, you don’t charge nearly what you’re worth!

Joyce Averils
Her RICH Life

Ihad the opportunity to work with Shoi on a logo design. It was a truly enjoyable experience. Her creative process was one that ensured that she knew what I wanted and that her final product was one that we were both pleased with.

I highly recommend her to anyone in need of a designer. She is a remarkable creative partner whose goal is to deliver a beautiful final product.

Susan Liddy, MA, CPCC

It was a bright, shiny day the day I discovered you. I appreciate you so much. I love your work and you are worth your price.

Maxine Dunn

Iam recommending you to everyone I know. Working with you through the process has been a dream come true! Just the way you gave such exquisite attention to every detail, your incredibly fast response time, and how wonderfully you communicated… I feel blessed to have found you.

Christine Kinney
Fresh Strategies

Always creative, always helpful and always professional, Shoi was an absolute delight to work with. She was able to quickly understand my business and my needs and then create a design that effectively expressed my brand.

Whether you already have an established brand or need to create a new identity, Shoi will successfully take the project from concept through completion.

Your customer service is what I call SOS — “Simply Outstanding Service”. I love your business savvy, I admire the passion you have for your work, and I will recommend you to everyone I can.

Corrine Bucher, CPCC

Shoi not only nailed the design of my ebook on the first pass, but she is extremely organized and easy to work with. Her design expertise and customer service skills are a winning combination.

Diane Ridge

Shoi is a pleasure to work with and is very responsive to questions, concerns and ideas! She is very thoughtful and open to suggestions. Her creative nature and experience make her a stellar designer and I highly recommend her work!

Leon Capsouto

Ihave known Shoi-Yean Mak for many years. She is very knowledgeable in design work, honest and can put together great websites.

Leanne Spencer, MA, M.Ed, LPC-S
Living Free Counseling

Shoi delivered a highly personal, enjoyable process with a final product that is THE BEST. And I love how she took care of me in the process. I can not recommend Shoi’s service high enough.

Icannot recommend Shoi highly enough. There was never a moment in the process of creating my designs where I did not feel listened to or understood. Despite all communication done via email, it felt like an easy, uncomplicated and trustworthy process and she was always supportive and switched on with her suggestions and ideas. Shoi has a strong team behind her and even if I asked for something quite unusual or difficult she found a way to create it.
