He tirelessly provided requested revisions and ultimately landed us a spot-on logo that has remained fresh for 12 years and counting.

Extreme Ministry Logo designed by Creative Sharks for Perimeter Church

"I've known and worked with Waitsel for more than 15 years. I can remember one campaign where he stayed up with me until 4 AM to get the final edits made to meet our deadline. His heart for excellence and his dedication to his craft is what sets him apart from other communication and design experts in town." - Randy Renbarger, Communications Director, Perimeter Church, Johns Creek (Greater Atlanta Area), GA

Web site designed by Creative Sharks for Lenoir Printing, Inc.

"The web site that Waitsel Smith and his Creative Sharks have created for my company is nothing less than a masterpiece. He listened to us and gave us what we needed, but also added his own ideas to make the site even better. His genuine interest in making it the best possible site was apparent from the beginning. His suggestions were intuitive and creative, and improved on the information we provided. The site is easy to use, easy to understand and easy to make changes if needed. I highly recommend working with Creative Sharks and am grateful for the reasonable cost, the effort expended and the apparent results that we're now getting. I have had customers and prospects call to say that they are impressed with what they've seen on our site and want to work with us. Our business has dramatically improved! How great is that?" - Bob Booth, President, Lenoir Printing, Inc, Lenoir, NC

Web site designed by Creative Sharks for Verdante Bioenergy

"We had an early start-up website that was doing what it needed to do in the beginning, but as we grew, we knew we needed a more professional appeal. Creative Sharks helped us achieve a professional appearance by selecting appropriate layouts, editing content, and distilling our message. The cost was in line with our budget and we were very pleased with the service both during the development and after the site went live. Waitsel was a great resource providing us timely and relevant feedback as we went through the process. I strongly urge you to consider Creative Sharks for your next web development effort - you will most likely be as pleased as we are!" - David Waechter, Founder and Chief Revenue Officer, Verdanté BioEnergy Services, Lenoir, NC

Web site designed by Creative Sharks for Chemistry Communications

"As a business owner, I am always torn between competing priorities: serving my clients and serving the needs of the business. What tends to fall through the cracks is marketing and our website. Waitsel worked tirelessly (and patiently!) with us to design a website we are proud of. And on an ongoing basis, he is there to remind me when there are maintenance or refresh items that need to be done. In many ways, he's not only my web designer ... he's my conscience!" - Marybeth Edgecomb, Owner, Chemistry Communications, Alpharetta (Greater Atlanta Area), GA

Web site designed by Creative Sharks for Artist Bobbi Miller

"Thanks to Waitsel's direction, a new exciting website replaces an old dull one. With patience and humor, Waitsel guided me through the machinations of website editing. Hints about photography (he even included some of his own photos!), recipes for editing and encouragement in public relations were offered long distance via telephone and emails. This process was test of his teaching skills due to my computer frustrations and impatience. But, always timely and always courteous, Waitsel's advice (offered in that soothing Southern drawl!) helped me focus on a business plan as well as on website maintenance. I highly recommend his services." - Bobbi Miller, Artist, Moran, WY
