The Friends of Harkness were so fortunate to have the guidance of a gifted and sensitive web designer, Janet Colandrea. Spot on instincts, a discerning eye, and a command of the latest technology were hallmarks of Janet’s work. A four person Board of Directors committee (Eileen Grant, Toni Pederson, Laurette Saller and Joan Prentice) collaborated, rather seamlessly, with Janet to produce the best product possible to serve our and the public’s needs. It was a joyful collaboration that felt right every step of the way!
“ From the very beginning of discussions with Janet on design concepts and content, she provided excellent recommendations that met the needs of our organization’s online presence. It was obvious that Janet had a very good grasp of the FCSP; she had done her homework! She quickly understood how to apply online tools and design techniques that would make our website not only attractive, but also easy to navigate and very functional, allowing our visitors to interact with us if needed and to obtain a wide range of information in a very intuitive manner. I cannot say enough how much of a pleasure it was, and continues to be, to work with Janet. She goes out of her way to understand her client’s needs and spends time understanding her client’s “line of business” which translates into excellent design concepts and a successful final product. Janet told me personally that she ‘likes to work with non-profits.’ Well I can tell you, we like working with her too!”
As many non-profits do, we created our first website without seeking professional help. That first site was stale and dated and did not engage our desired audience. Since hiring Colandrea Design, our site is colorful, informative and our traffic has increased immensely. Janet is responsive, very creative, knowledgeable in social media and a pleasure to work with.”
