Crystal Rothwell

My experience working with Brandon was very positive. He helped me on a variety of client projects and completed them all successfully. In particular, his help on the labelprint.ca forms was invaluable. He helped update a large amount of custom css and javascript on several long web forms to be compatible with the new version of the form plugin's code. I look forward to working with him again.
