And while I'm at it, I was talking the other day to the husband of one of our authors who was full of praise about the simplicity (and he meant that in the most complimentary way), ease of navigability (did I just make up that word?), the clean and clear look and the information provided on our website. Of course I took full credit :) Kidding!"

Thank you so much for getting everything off the other website. I feel so relieved that finally the website is on its way to being finished.
The print only stylesheet is a wonderful idea! I had tried printing pages off my website before but they looked terrible with blocks of white and teal here and there.
Much appreciation :)"

"Thank you — it all looks absolutely phenomenal! We've already had several great feedback comments, especially from our marketing consultant — he loves it!!!"
— Mike Norman, co-owner
Congratulations on the new look and design for 'ChicagoEnduranceSports.com'
My first impression is, "Wow."
What a great stride forward.
(And in the business you are both in, "great strides" are a very good thing...)
The site is informative and attractive, and makes an excellent statement about the CES Brand.
Everything is easy to maneuver through and around; and the (very) "clean" look (and your choice of photos) is 'just right' for the target audience which CES is trying to attract.
I can only imagine that this re-design has turned out to be everything (and more) which you hoped it would be.
I don't know about the two of you, but that new website just makes me smile. Please tell the designer (Teresa) that she did a really great job..."
— CES Marketing Consultant
"I love it. You created a website that is a direct expression of what we do, who we are and why people love to train with us! Thank you!"
— Jenny Hadfield
"Looks fabulous! I am so excited! You've done an incredible job!!!"
"FANTASTIC... I love all the new photos. GREAT stuff.
Congratulations. It's a super site!"
— John Bingham
"Thanks—this all looks great. We appreciate you working with us on a short time line to produce a great design!"

His ad will be in the paper tomorrow and it's great that everything is right there if people check the site. I can't tell you how much this means, and again you and Michael [Buckley] are fantastic for bringing this about... all the best, Annie"

"This is terrific feedback! Many thanks and kudos to Margaret!
I've had a first pass at it, and made a bunch of notes. I'll need some more time to digest it, work on stuff and get back to you. For now, however, I must say, the comments are intelligent, insightful and quite thorough; this is very helpful." (Jeff in response to content suggestions from Attention)
Michael Buckley, writer (private website)
"I passed along the trailer addresses to my agent and some other parties, and responses varied from Wow! to Fabulous!

Thanks for final adjustments—all running now."

I have never seen such an organized, imaginative and well presented event! And this is only your second one! Particularly the media section. Great!"
"... it's very well laid-out, especially for a technopeasant like myself. I use e-mail and word processing a lot but 'surfing the net' has been an exercise in frustration for me (so much visual garbage) that I approached the website with trepidation the first time. What a treat to have a logical path to follow!! and no irrelevant stuff popping up left, right and centre."
