It was a complete joy working with Emily Wray. She was professional, creative, timely, and very supportive. I loved her clarity with regard to her deliverables and pricing, and then her follow through was just as we had agreed upon. The quality of her work was excellent. Her layout was clean and crisp and she always seemed to follow along with any feedback and/or recommendations I had for changes and improvements. In other words, she seemed to understand and respond to my needs. Lastly, she spent quite a lot of time getting me trained up on the system so I could function independently of her. However, I still feel comfortable to call and email her when I have a quick question. I imagine our working relationship will be ongoing and highly recommend her.
I've worked with lots of different designers, consultants, etc. in my time, and Emily has been the easiest, most professional that I've ever worked with. Her main concern has been the end result for the client, as it should be.
I have had the pleasure of working with Emily Wray over a ten year period and have truly never met an individual with such a “can do” attitude and a willingness to make things happen. In addition to the numerous graphic design, print work and web projects that Emily has done for me, she has also worked for me teaching classes for my business. She has handled every aspect of my business including: teaching, the presentation portion, referrals and the financial aspect. My students all rave about her effective communication skills and easy demeanor. It is such a relief to hand over the reins to someone and know everything will be handled with such care and professionalism. I can honestly say in life there are very few people who give you the confidence to know that if you entrust them with a task, they will handle it as though it was their own personal business. Emily has endured many last minute requests from me and always handles my “emergencies” in a ridiculously quick manner! Emily is truly one of the most creative and conscientious people I have ever met.
I have been beyond thrilled with the work Emily has done for me with both www.elizabethbarbour.com and www.solituderetreats.com. She managed both redesigns just beautifully! She's creative, cutting-edge, an out of the box thinker and is an excellent partner to collaborate and create with.
Emily is also an educator, which to me is so valuable. She doesn't just "do" stuff, she explains "why" it's important and how it works.
Emily does web design, graphic design and more - she's really a one-stop-shop which, to me, has been a God send! She's a critical part of my marketing team now and I'm so grateful to have found her.
Besides Emily's talent for emulating designs for more corporate clients, she also has a real talent for seeing things in a new fresh way for more creative projects... all of this on top of her superb client-relations skills makes her a real freelance ninja.
Emily is fantastic. She consistently checked with us, which eased our thoughts on working with someone across the country! Her ideas and feedback were exceptional and her rates were extremely fair and well deserved. I would hire Emily again in a heartbeat.
Working with Emily has been a pleasure on many levels. I have witnessed the power of her ability to not only generate innovative ideas, but also put them into action. As an Associate Course Director in the Education Media Design and Technology program, Emily has exemplified what the mission is all about - innovation and engagement with media.
Emily Wray is the highest caliber of professional in the industry. It is a pleasure working with her. She combines excellent interpersonal skills with artistic and technical mastery. I have seen how she excels at everything she focuses on. I give her the highest recommendation to any organization lucky enough to have her. Please contact me for references.
Emily is the best! We have worked with her on a few projects and have been blown away by the results everytime. We had a random idea drawn on a napkin and she brought it to life. Emily's dedication to "Getting it right" is amazing. She is always willing to listen to your ideas and encourages you to bring them to her. She's a dream to work with and her positive energy shines in her work. She takes the time to teach you how to use your web site with such easy instructions, even I could follow! Anytime I had a question she would have an answer that made sense. I will continue to call on el Wray Design and encourage you to do the same.
We Love Emily!!!
Mom's Time Out is so appreciative of Emily's work. She quickly transformed the abstract ideas of four women into a sophisticated and beautiful logo. We are so excited to unveil our new logo to our group. We cannot thank her enough for being so easy to work with and willing to make all of the changes we requested. We plan on working with her again in the future!
Emily has been an absolute pleasure to work with on our new website. Her work is crisp, fast and beautiful. We couldn't be more happy with our results and have comfort in her knowledge about all things tech and design. She really knows how to integrate all the many technologies available and maximize our presence in support of our mission!
We are so appreciative for the design and assistance Emily provided during our web site development.
The suggestions Emily made were always relevant and on target. The work was completed within the scheduled time line and budget. The outcome speaks for itself. We hope she will use the Solitude Retreats website as an example of her excellent work.
We look forward to many more designs from el Wray coming our way!
Working with Emily was a completely seamless experience.
I wasn't exactly sure what I had in mind for our group logo, but through a series of though-provoking questions, she helped me focus on exactly the style and feeling that I was hoping our logo would convey. When she provided me with several sample designs, I knew that she understood exactly the nature of the project before her. I shared her designs with the group and we decided on one of the designs right away with no revisions needed. Without hesitation, I will refer my business associates and colleagues to el Wray Design.
Emily the Great...
I have had the pleasure of working with Emily on a few projects, but most recently she designed and help brand my cupcakery, Lucy and Leo’s Cupcakery. After scratching down a few "looks", drawings and verbiage on a piece of notebook paper, I gave Emily the creative freedom to help me define my brand. She amazed me with her effortless creativity, and developed a logo and web-site that portrayed my vision better than I imagined it in the first place! Customers often inquire about and compliment our branding and I proudly refer them to Emily without hesitation.
When we decided that our website was going to be such an integral part of our business, and essentially our calling card to potential clients, we researched many web designers before discovering the unique artistry of Emily Wray. The quality of work, attention to detail and enthusiasm Emily has displayed throughout the design process, has been extremely impressive. She was able to create a professional and uniquely beautiful website from our team meetings, stacks of text and photos. We feel extremely fortunate to have found Emily and confident that our website will give us a distinct advantage over our competitors. We look forward to continuing our relationship in the future with el Wray Design as our company grows and evolves. Needless to say, we highly recommend Emily and thank her for being a part of our team.
I highly recommend Emily Wray and el Wray Design. Emily was brilliant in incorporating my vision, content, and thoughts into my firm’s new website, while at the same time providing valuable feedback as to the functionality and effectiveness of the site. Unlike larger marketing firms, Emily personally took the time to understand the firm’s goals and expectations while building the site. My website was up and running within a short time and at a very reasonable price. I have received numerous compliments about the site, including its appearance and functionality.
A BIG thanks to el Wray Design for capturing my vision for an awesome business card design. I've received so many compliments on the cards! My experience working with Emily has been great and I will most definitely use her professional services in the future.
Emily Wray empowered me to take charge of my own website! I usually hate being on the computer but last night I updated my website in under five minutes! Emily designed a clean layout so that my artwork is the primary focus and I have received numerous compliments on her design. She was professional and provided the educational tools that I needed to know how to use my site. I am no longer afraid of my own website.
Emily Wray is amazing. Working with very little direction from us, she was able to visually capture the essence of our project to an astonishing degree. We definitely hope to work with Emily again in the future - she is a dream to work with and enabled us to concentrate on other aspects of the project knowing that the graphic design aspect was taken care of in her very capable and talented hands.
I learned about Emily’s services through my previous employer when he needed her to add my profile to the firm’s web site in Tallahassee. Emily showed up to take my picture for the website and only later that day, emailed me various proofs from which to pick. I wrote my biography for the web site and Emily had both the picture and biography up right away! The process was fun and so easy, all I had to do was email her which picture I wanted, or if there was a change to the biography, and she fixed it right away and emailed me back.
It was so convenient doing business with Emily that when I later opened up my own law firm in Jacksonville, FL, I contacted her to do my new firm’s web page. What I found so easy about the process is that we were able to create the entire web page by emailing each other! As a busy attorney, taking advantage of communication technology is a necessity. It was great to be able to put down my thoughts, or text I just thought of for the web site, shoot it over to Emily in an email, and hear back from her in no time.
I also loved how knowledgeable Emily is about every aspect of web design. When I had no clue what type of text to put on the front page, or what information would be helpful to the reader, Emily was always full of great suggestions, that afterward it seemed like she read my mind. Regarding the physical layout of the web page (design, colors, etc.), all I had to do was point out some samples of other web pages I liked, and some colors I was thinking of, and Emily put the whole thing together in no time and it came alive like magic - there was no second attempt needed, I loved what she did the first time around, it was great.
Emily also designed my business cards and letterhead for me, so everything matches the font and logo on my website, and that was just as easy.
Currently, Emily is setting up a Google Ad Words account for me and she will also be there to edit and manage it along the way.
Working with Emily was and continues to be a really great experience. With all of the work I have everyday, I don’t have time to "deal" with a lot of extras - I never consider working with Emily "work." Instead, it is one of the parts of my day I look forward to.
