    First let me say, Derek is amazing. I had a complete website overhaul and redesign. He let me know upfront the timeline that we would be working with. He would email me updates EVERY Saturday so I knew exactly what was going on and the status of the project. He advised me on various things, asked questions, and listed everything I'm bullet points so it was easy for me to address. Definitely hiring him and recommending him for all future projects.

    I can't say enough good things about ZBolt Designs for our web re-design. They came in on budget and ahead of schedule. They have incredible professionalism and patience. This is a tech savvy group and you will be overly satisfied with the end result. Don't think twice about selecting ZBolt for your web design. AMAZING!

  • 5/5 stars

    I definitely recommend ZBoltDesigns. My website was very professionally and promptly produced, and email integrated, for much less than other providers.

    Derek was GREAT to work with. I have absolutely no website building knowledge or experience what-so-ever and I was tasked with creating a site for our company. I definitely wasn't the easiest customer Derek has ever dealt with as a lot of the time he was waiting on me for content or feedback - but he was always patient and really great with his response time. Our team is extremely pleased with the completed site and we plan to use Derek again when it comes time to add to the current site as our company grows. I would highly recommend ZBOLT to any colleagues or friends who need help with creating a site at an affordable cost.

    My partner and I hired Derek to create the website for our new company, since we had no experience doing it ourselves. We are very pleased with the outcome, and the process that led up to it. Derek is extremely responsive, and one of the best aspects of working with him is that he allows you to view your site as a "work in progress" before it goes live, and suggest modifications as you go--which Derek inevitably makes within just a few hours. Highly recommended.

    Derek did an outstanding job on my website. It was a great pleasure for me to work with him through the entire website re-design process, he exceeded all of my expectations. I highly recommend him to anyone looking for website design support.

    I live in Seattle Washington and travel very often and it was very easy to hire Derek from a different state. I thought hiring someone outside of my state would be a nightmare but Derek from ZBoltDesigns made this experience very easy.

    I hired Derek to design my Website www.horusformen.com and i could not be happier with the outcome. He makes sure he understands the customers needs and will work with any budget.

    I will highly recommend ZBoltDesigns services, not only does Derek provide Top Quality Designs, but also at an appropriate time frame.

    Derek was great too work with. I simply gave him some ideas of what we liked and the info we wanted on our site and he took care of the rest. The site turned out fantastic and exceeded our expectations. We confidently recommend everyone we know to Z Bolt Designs. Thanks again!

    Derek and Z Bolt are the best. He works with very little directions and always delivers exactly the creative I am looking for. As a small business owner, I have hired my share of graphic designers, and know the good from the bad. Derek is great, hire him.

  • 5/5 stars

    Derek listened to my needs and made practical, yet creative suggestions. ZBoltDesigns is a professional organization that has a staging server that allowed me to view the site and see the progress without it being live. Derek was patient and met his time commitments. I received 6 price quotes and thought ZBolt's pricing was competitive and fair. I would definitely recommend ZBolt for website design and implementation.

    I hired Derek to design a website from scratch. I never had the opportunity to meet him in person as we live in opposite parts of the country. This made me a little uneasy but he assured me that it is how he conducts most of his business. We conducted most communication through e-mail and some on the phone.

    To be frank, I am a pretty particular person and had some very specific ideas about what I wanted things to look like and other areas where I was open to and needed Derek’s suggestions and creativity. Derek was great about both. He was so patient and accommodating trying to get things just the way I wanted them and the areas that I needed his input, he was right there with ideas and options. He didn’t nickel and dime me for anything, staying 100% on budget. He also finished the job in the timeline promised.

    Based on most websites I see out there, I feel that Derek has the knowledge to utilize some pretty advanced skills and technology, which he incorporated into my site. And to boot, the price was very reasonable.

    I don’t give 5-star ratings lightly, but Derek earned every star and more! I highly recommend his services.

    I tried to create my own website through those sites that are free. Although I think I did a pretty good job, I have to be honest and admit that the site looked “homemade.” ZBoltDesigns is a life saver. They took the content from the other site and made a completely new site with it. ZBoltDesigns process made getting this done easy and almost carefree. My new site is professional and sleek, and I have so much more confidence in what I’m doing because of it. Thank you, Derek for your excellent service that you performed at a very reasonable rate. I recommend ZBoltDesigns to anyone. Their work makes my online presence look incredible!!!

    I wanted a Wordpress site and Derek did a great job of creating it. He was responsive throughout the process. Made changes to the site and graphics as needed. He didn't stop helping after he was paid. The site needed a change to work on GoDaddy and he made the change promptly. I would highly recommend Derek for a website.

    It was a pleasure to work with Derek for the creation of our website. We had a vision and Derek was able to bring it to life. He was very patient with us as we took our time picking out photos and text that we wanted for our website. We would definitely recommend his services to anyone who is looking for a new website.

  • 5/5 stars Web Design Verified Review

    I worked with Derek for the past two months on a re-design of my research lab website. Derek was extremely responsive to my feedback, got me exactly what was promised and in the timeframe promised. In fact, I think he would have been able to get the job done much more quickly if I could have fed him materials in a more timely fashion! He is still working with me to tweak little features on my site. His price quote was so much more reasonable than other companies for the same amount of work. I don't have a single complaint and highly recommend him.

  • 5/5 stars Web Design Verified Review

    Derek has been very easy to work with, understanding what I was looking for immediately. I would certainly recommend him and use him again.

  • 5/5 stars Web Design Verified Review

    It was a pleasure to work with Derek on our WordPress website. From creative to completion, he was very responsive to our needs and changes and had the website completed in a short amount of time. We would absolutely use ZBoltDesigns on our future websites.

  • 5/5 stars Web Development Verified Review

    I asked ZBolt to create a web site for my new consulting firm and what I got jumped off the page! The web site Derek created was much better than anything I expected, and it was done quickly. I highly recommend ZBolt Designs and Derek to anyone who wants a professional web site up and running quickly and correctly at a reasonable price.

    Derek is doing a fantastic job building my website. We are still working on it only because I'm constantly changing my mind. Derek is very professional and helps guide my ideas into a tech world, very foreign to me. He is very professional and articulate in explaining to me why some of my ideas will work and why others wont. Derek takes the time to talk to me on the phone and sincerely listens to my ideas. Opening up a business can be very scary. Derek Lushbaugh has made sure that building the website has been a fun and exciting experience. I would recommend him to anyone who needs a website.

  • 5/5 stars Web Design Verified Review

    Derek did a very nice job on my website.Derek was very easy to work with ,and very professional.I was glad to have Derk Lushbaugh do my business website for me.

    Derek designed a website for our new business. His prices were competitive and extremely reasonable. More importantly, in my opinion, he was VERY reliable and always responded to our questions and concerns in a timely manner. He was so helpful guiding us through the process and made us feel very comfortable. We are thoroughly impressed! Thanks, Derek!

  • 5/5 stars Web Design Verified Review

    Derek did an outstanding job on my new web site. Like others I’m sure your company’s web site is extremely important to the vitality of your company. I have a background in IT so I wasn’t completely clueless what needed to be done and what I wanted. Derek was a good listener. He finished on time. Communication with him, even though we’re in different states, was excellent. He was always available. My website has a much nicer look and feel now. I am buying new SEO services from him because I feel he not only designed a nice site for me, but he has good SEO knowledge to add. I would definitely recommend him and feel free to contact me about Derek if needed. Again, great job. I’m very pleased with my new site.

  • 5/5 stars Web Design Verified Review

    Derek did a great job transforming my website into a Wordpress platform. He did everything I asked of him, and included some of his own helpful suggestions. The turnaround was quick and he communicated professionally through email so we were able to get everything done in the timeframe.

    Derek did an amazing job with my first website! First off, his price was very competitive. Secondly, he was very accommodating, for example he assisted with getting some stock images on my webpage. He is an excellent communicator, both over the phone and email. Finally, my webpage looks Amazing and professional! It's exactly what I wanted.

    I will definitely recommend Derek to all my friends.

    Thank you!

  • 5/5 stars Web Development Verified Review

    Derek was quick to answer my questions and had my site up and live in a matter of days. I would certainly use him again and refer him to others.

  • 5/5 stars Web Design Verified Review

    Derek was fabulous to work with. I know literally nothing about web design, other than what I wanted my page to look like. Derek prepared several options, and tweaked it until the site was to my satisfaction. Not only that, he held my hand until I was able to confidently post content to my site on my own. I highly recommend ZBolt Designs.

  • 5/5 stars Web Design Verified Review

    Derek is very easy to work with, follows through and does what he says, and his pricing is very fair! His response time to our situation was excellent and he is very patient with someone like me who just needs the job done. I needed a landing page for our website and the website all within two business days. Done! Highly recommend his services!!!

  • 5/5 stars Web Design Verified Review

    Derek was a pleasure to work with. He was able to take my idea for my website and build something that I am truly happy with. His communication was great, and made outstanding effort when I asked him to make any changes or corrections. His updates were quick. The price was very, very reasonable. I would honestly recommend him to anybody needing a website. I hired him on Thumbtack because I read the positive reviews, and now I am happy to be leaving one of my own. Thanks again.

    ZBolt Designs is one of the most creative, knowledgeable, reliable and resourceful small web design businesses out there.
