20 Testimonials

We had a wonderful experience working with Design by Bold, and he custom-designed an elegant and beautiful website for us. I would without hesitation recommend him.

When my business partner and I were looking for a web developer to build our website, we met with an array of individual freelancers and developers from agencies. Although they may have been technically skilled, no one matched Design by Bold in terms of both his technical prowess and his aesthetic vision and design capabilities. As other developers tended to produce websites that looked uninspired, Design by Bold truly understood how a website for an aspirational fashion brand should look and feel.

Design by Bold is also tireless in his desire to make his customer happy and to achieve a product that is as close to perfect as possible. He has a high level of attention to detail when it comes to UI/UX, and he takes great pride in his work. We are very happy with the process of having worked with him and our final product.

EFM Menswear over 1 year ago

Working with Wim at Design By Bold was an absolute pleasure. He is a talented developer and designer, and a truly valuable collaborative partner. We had a pretty clear idea of the framework we wanted, and Wim listened and paid attention to our needs. But he also made design and functionality suggestions that we would not otherwise have thought of, and that made the site much better.

He definitely goes the extra mile and exceeded our expectations in terms of professionalism and attention to detail. His diligent work and responsiveness helped us meet every deadline. We are a high end boutique apparel firm, and our designers pay attention to EVERYTHING. I can’t say enough about how seamlessly Wim fit into our ethos, design process and production schedule. He’s a great partner and I am proud of the work we did together.

This is the guy every employer is looking for – talented, passionate, detail oriented and willing to go to great lengths for perfection. We will certainly be working with Design By Bold in the future.

Wim has done an outstanding job translating our design into a Shopify Store. His coding is excellent and the project was finished on time even though we had a very tight deadline for it. Wim pays a lot of attention to detail, much more so than any other developers I ever worked with before. He responds to emails and calls very quickly and is addressing issues right away and offers solutions I may not have though of. Our new store launched about 6 weeks ago and it has been a big success with a very good conversion rates. What is truly outstanding also is that Wim continues to give support and make updates. He delivered and delivers beyond my expectations. It has been a true pleasure to work with him and I hope that I will soon have the possibility to work with Wim again.
