“Pat Kenney at Black Cap Design did an excellent job in building my website. He achieved the look I envisioned from the start. For someone like myself who is not computer savvy, he communicated promptly, effectively and patiently addressed any questions I had about the project. He was professional at all times. I would recommend him to anyone!”

“For Peterborough’s first International Women’s Day conference, we wanted a website that was visually compelling, but also offered easy functionality for purchasing tickets and selecting workshops. We couldn’t be any happier with the way the site turned out and our experience with Black Cap Design. Under extremely tight deadlines, Pat and Carrie worked closely with us to develop an online presence that fit the International Women’s Day brand and was relevant. When we met with them to discuss the project, we were immediately impressed with how easy they are to communicate with—just friendly, down to earth people that don’t talk over your head with tech jargon. They listened and spent ample time understanding what we wanted to make sure the site layout was appropriate. They are fast with responding to questions and offered valuable solutions to any challenges we were faced with. They also pulled off some very tricky programming feats to get the site to do what we wanted, while not losing sight of the need for superb, modern aesthetics. Carrie and Pat are top-notch in their field and were a pleasure to work with throughout the entire process. Without hesitation, we would highly recommend Black Cap Design for your web developing needs!”

“I had been doing my own web site since 2001.  I used a program that isn’t even available these days.  Due to its limitations and all the different types of computers, security on them etc my ordering process wasn’t so easy for all.  Needed to update the process and make it easier for customers to place an order.  Also always thought if the site ever has issues during the gardening season…   Decided sometime last spring to look at having it redone.   My goal was to learn a new program eventually and have the new site up and running for sometime in December 2015 in time for season 19.  I came up with some goals for the new site/layout and met with Pat in October 2015.  Was 10 minutes in and had decided he had the job.  Pat was easy to work with.  Emailing back and forth worked well for both of us. Knowing he was local was great as I believe in supporting businesses locally when we have a choice.  We both came up with some new ideas during the initial design process and during the construction.  I had a date in mind for launch and budget for his time and he respected both.   Due to me wanting to learn and do some of the work myself for some content, ‘plant inventories/control’ and shopping cart options he taught me along the way.  Suggested some great videos and now it has been launched I am very pleased with the results.  I have had a few customers already say one of the easiest shopping online experiences they had.  Was important to me to look professional but still have the personal touch.  I didn’t want it to look like a site only for mail ordering perennials.  Local customers can pre-order their plants and set up a pick up date! NO payment required until customers pick up which is what I had done prior. Thank you again Pat!”

He has expert knowledge in all aspects of web design and hosting and his commitment to small details is excellent. I really appreciate that whenever I have a question or suggestion Pat is easy to contact and he tries to acknowledge and reply to me within a couple hours.
