We have just had a new website designed by Tracy at Catfish Web Creations who was very kind to us price wise and we thank her for that. Please take a look www.nepaledfund.ca I think it is just great, so eye catching and colourful, lots of photos and represents NEF’s mandate well. I am going to be able to manage it myself after I do a bit of practice. Now I can be proud to give out the web address before I was always apologizing for it. After all NEF is a charity we can all be proud of so anything that represents us has to be good.

Being a person who has limited knowledge of anything technical, when I decided to start my own business that would have an online component, I knew it was key that I find a web designer who could speak to me in non-technical terms and had the patience to deal with my (probably very simple) questions. Tracy at Catfish Web Creations was the perfect fit. She was very quickly able to get a grasp of what I was envisioning for my website and provide me with excellent advice in terms that I could understand. It was almost like she intuitively knew what I wanted from the very beginning and she quickly developed a website that I was 100% happy with - from layout to colour scheme to functionality. Tracy made the process positive and simple, and went out of her way to ensure I had an end-product that fit my needs. And, she did it all within a very tight budget. I would strongly recommend Tracy to anyone who needs a web designer, and especially to those who need a web designer who can communicate to them without all the techno-babble.

If you are looking for a talented, creative professional to design a web presence for your business, I would highly recommend Tracy Lamb. Tracy is focused and works well as a co-collaborator. Her attention to the smallest details is an aspect to Tracy’s work that not only proved her professionalism, but allowed me the trust and comfort that the job would get done. Not only was my website completed on time and on budget, it was simply beyond my expectations. Tracy took the numerous twists and turns in stride and never once “let the ball drop”, making a daunting aspect of my business seem relatively easy and stress free. I have every confidence in recommending Tracy and Catfish Web Creations for your next website design project.
Tracy has designed 2 web sites for me. She has a great eye for colour and balance and detail! My ideas for my most recent site evolved thru the process and Tracy was flexible, prompt and fun to work with. She’ll deliver a web site that will represent your business professionally on line. I still can’t believe I got my first customer within 3 minutes of the finished site going LIVE!

I wanted a website for my new business, so I set out to do my homework. With only the very basic computer skills I was finding the process quite daunting. First I looked for websites that appealed to me. Then I contacted designers who I found via the web and by word of mouth. The estimated costs were all over the map and the personalities were too. How was I supposed to know what SEO and CMS meant? I am a veterinarian, not a fast talking computer wiz.
I wanted to be able to hire a web designer that was skilled and experienced, yet friendly, approachable and realistic. I thought that a long term relationship built on mutual trust and creativity would be important to help my website evolve. I also had a sensible budget. Then along came Tracy of Catfish Web Design on Vancouver Island....thank you Tracy.... I knew if I did my homework I would find you!... Dr. Mary Jane Bowie

“I can’t believe how you have been able to ultimately get what I really want without me knowing what I wanted to be honest. Huge pat on the back for that one. You are amazing and I'm probably not the first person to tell you that.”

"I used Catfish Web Creations when I wanted to update my web site. Tracy was able to take my ideas and create exactly what I wanted. She was flexible and willing to try different things until we had it right. She offered so many useful suggestions and is available to add more to the site as I need it. I will be creating another web site for a different business venture and I will certainly use Catfish again."

"There are many charitable fundraisers on Vancouver Island that find themselves competing with one another for the donations required to ensure a successful event. Add to the mix the various sports teams, school bands, and local emergency relief drives, we have to work very hard to retain and grow our base of support. Although we had managed to brand ourselves with our successes to date, I knew that in order to go forward we would need a vehicle that would provide a quick, easy access of detailed information. It would have to be delivered in a way that would make the visitor to our website want to “stay for a while” and truly get to understand who we are and what we do. Having Tracy join our team timed perfectly with our growth and has made my job so much easier. She places the requested changes and additions very quickly so as to keep the Davey Derby website up to date with what is happening. Tracy has done such a great job delivering our message that for the first time I have people calling me with offers of donations and words of encouragement. Her feel for what is needed and sense of taste is reflected in the positive feedback I get each day from visitors to our site."

"Working with Catfish Web Creations in creating my first ever web page has always been professional and productive. She always gave meaningful feedback, recommendations and counsel about the site and the development stages. Even though PTE-Direct serves a very specific clientele, Catfish Web Creations technical skills combined with her ability to listen and distil our vision, created a workable and unique web site to move the business forward. PTE-Direct looks forward to a continued relationship with Catfish Web Creations in the future."
Zen Dog asked Tracy to create for us a rather complex, interactive website. We needed to be able to add or subtract content and we wanted an attractive, eye-catching presentation. Tracy listened carefully to our desires. She asked the right questions and made sure she was clear about what we wanted. She is a self-taught web designer, which is impressive enough, but perhaps her most impressive attribute is her willingness to research, learn and practice the areas of the designer’s art which she has not encountered previously. Tracy is very easy to work with, she works hard and she is patient with our basic lack of technical knowledge. We are particularly grateful for her willingness to make changes and remain responsive to our questions even after the site had been posted. When the time comes to re-vamp the Zen Dog website we will certainly call her first.
Tracy did a great job on our site. She was very responsive to our frequently changing minds. Even at distance, before we met her face to face, she was great to work with. What I like most about Tracy was how we only told her concepts and ideas, and she translated it into images with the right feel. She intuited the right tone, the right balance of looks and substance. It feels like we've been understood.
