You’re one of the most creative persons I know. And it’s the little things, like jokes on Twitter. It’s your out-of-the-box thinking about things like special characters in URLs and HD backgrounds on websites. These are innovative things that few, if any, people think about.

McBlain. Tough to sum up. Words like…intelligent, creative, industrious, ambitious, detail-oriented are all ones that come to mind. But more than this, he can be relied upon to get the job done and done well. He has tremendous interpersonal communication skills. He rapidly grasps the Big Idea in complex projects. He helped make my business – a business!

I was the Creative Director at an agency where Arley McBlain worked as our Web Specialist. Every challenge I could threw at Arley he met head on, with great success! Beyond being a lot of fun to work with, Arley brings fresh ideas and energy to every project. His work ethic is very strong and I would recommend him to anyone needing web/new media development.

Arley is like your website’s bodyguard. He’s looking out for it’s best interests, and for your best interests. So when something threatens a site’s well-being, it’s ability to be useful, or functional, he’ll let you know. And that’s very, very important. I’ve learned a lot working with Arley. So will you.

Clients

Arley was the easiest person to work with while designing my website and CD jacket. I just told him what I had envisioned and he used it as inspiration to create a classic design. I have never been more pleased with the design talent and creativity. Many of my clients have made specific mention of how classy; elegant; and professional my website is. It’s my biggest advertising tool, and the first impression I make on people, so it’s very important that it not only reflects who I am as a classical musician but as a professional.

Since Arley has redesigned my website I have seen my business double.

I just wanted to thank you once again for your continued great service in designing and maintaining my web site! The changes look great! You know, unlike many webmasters, who try to sell you the world and don’t seem to deliver, you always work within my means and still manage to give me more than I feel I’m paying for! Your ideas are always creative, yet realistic and this helps make my site feasable and keeps it fresh and manageable. I’ve had many positive comments about the site and absolutely no negative comments.Thanks again, Arley! best fishes,

I was in a bind and needed a website up in under a week to coincide with a book launch I was doing. I was told Arley was the man to go to. Not only was Arley able to have my site up in just a few days, but he was able to teach me how to update it myself, which was no easy task. From original concept to completion, Arley was able to build a site exactly how I wanted it, making it so user friendly a child could use it. And when your writing a kids book, that comes in handy.
