    We have had multiple sites designed by Sunflowers and Seagulls and each one while being quite different are all so bright, fun and make our sites look amazing. We would recommend Sunflowers and Seagulls to anyone who needs their site updated or a new one designed. Thanks Claudia for all the work you did with us.

    Claudia @ Sunflowers and Seagulls constructed a colorful and creative website for the12-room private school I financed and built in Bamyan, Afghanistan ...www.bamyanbabaprivateschool.org For all her hard work, Sunflowers' price was very fair. I certainly recommend her for anyone who needs to construct a professional, yet different, website. Over a helpful 9 -month period, using skype talk (the slowness of time was mine- not Claudia's) - I sent her building photos, many videos of students and verbiage/facts re: these Afghan students (teachers and construction laborers) at play and work in (and outside) the classrooms, computer lab, etc. she designed an excellent flexible and helpful website; we even used several Dari words in the introduction which perfectly matched the English language - so my friends both in Afghanistan and English speaking countries can also learn about Baba school. My colleagues in Bamyan are impressed -Provincial Governor, Superintendent of Education, Mayor and school principle. Thank you, Claudia. I look forward to working with you over the next few years as we maintain and update it....off to Afghanistan next week to visit the school- to return w/ more fresh and smiling faces for inclusion in the next version!

    Claudia did an amazing job designing banners for my website. She was always quick to deliver and went above and beyond to make sure my needs were met. It is evident that she is very experienced and knowledgeable not only about graphic design, but website design and SEO as well. I will definitely be calling on her for all of my future graphic design and website jobs.

    Claudia created a incredible website for me. She was wonderful to work with, walked me through every step of the process and had wonderful suggestions. I have never had a designer spend so much time making sure I was happy with the product, until working with Claudia.

    She is great to work with. She turns any ideas I might have into graphic realities as well as brings many of her own ideas to the table. She finishes projects on time and makes changes quickly. Best graphic designer I have ever had the opportunity to work with.

    Claudia did my graphic design work for ads I sold. She completed the ones I emailed her within one day and all my clients loved her work and approved ad with only one advertiser changing anything on ad. I gave five stars for her work and for her communications and I will use her for all graphic design projects I have and recommend her to all who ask.

    Claudia designed my website from beginning to end. The graphics were exceptional, showing what we were all about before reading any of our content. She did a couple adjustments I needed and never took over the time stated. When I decided I needed a specialty script wrote for a specific area after the adjustments, Claudia pulled through with a wonderful script for a fraction of the cost other companies asked. When the script she wrote was delivered, she spent time with me to make sure I knew how to use it properly. If you want a professional 'top-notch' website, Claudia aka Sunflowers and Seagulls Promotional Services should be the first designer you contact. You're needs will be met by this company!

    Hi There, Sunflowers and Seagulls is a professionally run service with a very smart lady directing the show. I always have gotten exactly what I want, and have seen artwork and effort put in, unlike many even larger organizations. Claudia has always shown a high degree of professionalism, and understanding of what her clients wants were and has been able to balance that to what the true needs are to get something that works, at the right price. A sensitive balance for most, and reliably achieved here.

    I have had the privilege of working with Claudia Beck for two years. She has provided me with fantastic custom logos and an entire automated affiliate program web presence. Her artistic ability is amazing and her grasp of the complexities of web design, web graphics and advanced web applications is impressive. Claudia is a joy to work with; she is prompt, courteous and skilled in creative problem-solving. It is very unusual to find someone whose creative and graphic talents are equal to their technical know how.

Q&A

What types of customers have you worked with?
Over the last several years, the demand for the types of graphic design services I provide to my clients has evolved considerably. This quickly escalating world of technology and air of conservation and living green that we are now in the midst of has massively reduced requests for print media such as brochures, flyers and even business cards. Therefore I now mainly provide my clients with a variety of types of web-based services such as website design, installation, setup, management and maintenance. This includes a large variety of types of websites such as corporate identity, eCommerce blogs and social media profile pages, membership sites, traffic exchanges and on-demand printing websites. Internet advertising media design and installation such as splash and postcard pages, banner ads, html email templates, and lead capture web page design is also a very common need for my clients. In regards to websites and scripts, I can create designs for this type of media from scratch. Although, a very popular choice for my clients now-a-days is for me to customize a pre-made template that they are using via popular website hosting platforms such as Bigcommerce, Shopify, SquareSpace, Snappages, Web.com and more.
What advice would you give a customer looking to hire a provider in your area of work?
I cannot emphasize enough -- be sure to look at the potential designer's own materials for which you are going to hire them for. Need a corporate identity package? Ask to see their logo, stationery and business card. Need a website? Be sure to get their URL(s) and dial it up. Make sure they represent themselves as a knowledgeable professional in a unique manner with skillfully presented promotions of their own which include correct spelling, creativity and "tidiness". Inquire about their customer service, copyright and other policies. Also their file production skills track record and vendor liaison offerings. Ask for testimonials, portfolio and other credentials such as professional memberships and associations they may belong to. Be sure to view any social media pages they may have live and online, particularly Facebook, Twitter and LinkedIn. Their content on these types of sites will speak volumes about them.
What questions should customers think through before talking to professionals about their project?
I suggest you think through the following points when compiling questions for your potential vendor: => That owning a graphics software package -- does not -- make the owner a graphic designer, just as owning a scalpel does not make a person a surgeon. => That design costs are incurred are mainly due to time, above most anything else. It simply takes time to create an eye-catching, effective design for any project. => That a graphic designer should do much more than simply plug in a cool looking icon into a space. They need to create an atmosphere that attracts, retains and compels its viewers as well as entices them to return. And finally... => that the computer equipment and software it takes to create the job a client really needs is not inexpensive and needs to be updated on a continuing basis in order to produce quality work. Therefore a portion of this expense must also be included within the fees a designer charges their customers.
