Web design

The Arrowhead Regional Medical Center/Kaiser Fontana General Surgery Residency needed to update their web page to attract potential trainees. The re-design called for a focus on presenting the information in a dynamic, attractive manner.

Rob designed a webpage and logo for our training program. We were on a very tight timeframe, and he really came through. He was extremely easy to communicate with, rapidly drafted an outline, then designed and constructed a page in short order. His logo work was fantastic and a big hit with everyone in our department.

He took my very basic ideas and turned them into a clean and professional page that looked great on a wide variety of devices from phones to desktop computers. Highly recommended if you want professional, high quality work, with excellent communication and very reasonable pricing!

More happy clients!

On many occasions I have asked for a rush order for a graphic design and he has come through each time delivering a product that doesn't reflect a lack in detail due to it's rushed order.

Rob is incredibly talented at delivering graphic work on or before deadlines that matches the requested graphics theme. Rob and his company was my first choice to create my company's fliers, posters and merchandise and I couldn't be happier. On many occasions I have asked for a rush order for a graphic design and he has come through each time delivering a product that doesn't reflect a lack in detail due to it's rushed order. Rob is great at asking many questions when a new project comes up to make sure he can give the customer exactly what they want in their design. What ever the order, Rob consistently goes out of his way to get the project done.

We first engaged Rob Hori to build a specialty bilingual English and Japanese website for an investment project of ours. We were so happy with his creative work that when it came time to develop a complex and important technical report for ICANN, our first stop was to Rob to develop a style and layout.

We first engaged Rob Hori to build a specialty bilingual English and Japanese website for an investment project of ours. We were so happy with his creative work that when it came time to develop a complex and important technical report for ICANN, our first stop was to Rob to develop a style and layout. Despite working under tight time constraints, the custom design templates Rob made for us exceeded our expectations and made the project deliverables really shine.

Since then, we've continued our engagement with Ren for custom graphic and web design work. Rob brings a wealth of practical design experience to bear on our problems; the ongoing dialogue for each of our projects helps us ensure consistency in design as well as in content.

We highly commend Ren to anyone who needs first rate graphic and web design support.
