The Buzz

Through the years I've had the opportunity to work with many amazing and talented people. Here's what some of them have to say about my work.

Kent is remarkably creative when it comes to website design. I told him what I wanted... he delivered that and more. I couldn't be happier.

Kent at Underscore Design has a rare, intuitive understanding of using the art of web design to communicate effectively with the market.

I highly recommend Underscore Design for your business website. Our customers matter most, and they compliment us all the time on the site. Kent is always helpful and ready to answer questions and make sure the site is running smoothly and I'm happy. I'm certain he can help your business like he helped mine.

Underscore Design has built several amazing websites for me. All exceeded my expectations in design and usability. I wouldn't go to anyone else to lead my web design projects.

Christopher Dorsey

Underscore Design is the best! Kent has helped me for years with my blog, Dagmar's Home. There is so much to know when it comes to web design, and he's able to help every time. If you want a professional site, you need someone like him. I couldn't do it without him.

Underscore Design has been great to work with. Kent helped us create the Prospector Knowledge Kent's experience in software development and WordPress in particular made for a very smooth project. His design work was excellent and any changes requested were implemented quickly. We also appreciated his patience while working with us to address a few hosting issues.

Laura Knox
Product Manager, UL

Underscore Design's exemplary hard work on our website proved to be the perfect marketing for us. Kent executed our project with knowledge and professionalism that made the process stress free. His expertise and creative genius is bar none. He is so easy to work with and incorporates design changes without taking offense. I look forward to working with Kent for all our future design projects.

Rhonda Befort
President, Arbitre Consulting, Inc.

Underscore Design has been great to work with. Kent helped us create the Prospector Knowledge Center, which is now the hub of our content marketing and social media programs. He not only delivered a website that met our needs, but guided us on ways to improve upon our original idea. The website is constantly changing, we've already done a complete rebrand, and everything has gone very smoothly. I would definitely recommend Underscore Design to anyone looking for Wordpress consulting.

Whitney Miller
Strategic Communications, UL

We couldn't be happier with the website Kent designed for us. We highly recommend Kent's web-design skills and feel that we received an outstanding value for our investment.

Jeanne and Jay Mathiesen

Kent designed us a website that is attractive, functional and dependable. His services are always timely and solve the issues at hand. I am very confident in his abilities and would be comfortable recommending him to anyone.
