Reviews and Testimonials
"Rick Penn-Kraus was hired to redesign a complicated database to make it more visually attractive as well as easier to navigate. Rick accomplished this task with creativity, enthusiasm and a great work ethic. Rick always responded promptly to emails and was reliable in delivering the work on the timeline we needed, even when needing to make multiple changes. He was flexible in his thinking and was patient in working with others who didn’t know much about web design, but who had strong opinions. It would be a pleasure to work with him again."

"Rick Penn-Kraus is my go-to guy for help with Adobe Photoshop and Illustrator. Not only is Rick an incredibly talented designer, photographer and illustrator, he is a natural teacher. Under an intense deadline, Rick was able to guide me through focused lessons and teach me the specific skills I needed to pull my project together. Rick was readily available by phone and email as well, which came in handy when I had questions after our sessions. And hey, he tells great jokes AND plays the guitar!"
