I enjoy how easy the program that operates the website is to edit and update, very user friendly, and I enjoy how it automatically operates SEO and other web presence features.
- Tyler Latimer, Lakelse Air
We provided minimal direction and did not have the time to be very involved in the design of the site. However, Spark Design sensed what we were looking for and went ahead on their instinct, with a good outcome. Setting the site up so that we could update the information ourselves, and telling us how to do so, was a great bonus. Time was of the essence, and the site was up and running in short order.

Progressive Ventures Construction Ltd
Service was prompt, consistent, and addressed our needs even as they changed through the course of the project.
- Hatha Callis, Progressive Ventures Construction Ltd
Having a high-end website design firm in my own back yard is a huge perk for a business based in a small town. I like having a personal relationship with a creative team, because it reflects in a final product that really meets your needs. Wouldn't get service of this calibre in a big city! Superior quality. Completely custom approach. High-end result. Very Satisfied.

District of Taylor
Taylor is now officially Village on a Diet!! The 12 part CBC TV series is on air and inspiring an entire Nation. Our website visits jumped from 350 per day to 1350 per day! We’re getting some amazing stories from people thru our website, and we wouldn’t have been able to reach out like this, or have people tap in so easily, if we didn’t have our website strategy in place... At the District of Taylor, we knew we had to do a better job communicating to tourists, business partners and most importantly our residents. We wanted to talk to the world, and invite the world to talk to us. We got exactly what we wanted. Thanks Spark!

North Coast Steelhead Alliance
I always had the outlook that Spark has the technical ability, experience, and know-how to produce modern looking, cutting edge, fully functional websites. Now I know they can produce what they promised on time and on budget. What worked well for me was the ability to work with very like minded creative people who were enthusiastic about our project and who worked hard to bring it to reality. The result exceeds what I had envisaged at the start of the project. Cheap website makers abound, but its hard to find truly creative types like those found at Spark that turn the ordinary into extraordinary.

Heritage Landscapes Kitimat-Stikine
We have had nothing but fabulous feedback on the brochures!! Thanks so much for all your hard work on this and for being available when we needed things at the last minute. We really appreciate it and it was nice working with you.

Spark Design are professionals... but they are personal. They assisted us in developing our company website, on all levels. Spark Design led us from "grass roots" to a phenomenal site; of which we have already had great comments on it! They assisted every step of the way, and to this day, ALWAYS are supportive. Highly recommended as a web-design company! Thank you for your professionalism in getting our company up and running online!

Very satisfied! Spark Design was friendly, knowledgeable and easy to work with. They provided a great service, I would recommend Spark Design to my local government peers!

Mount Moresby Adventure Camp
We now feel that we have a website that is only limited by what content we add. It feels like there is lots of room to tell our story and engage the site visitors. Great design - both technically and creatively! Superior quality of service! Very satisfied!
- Jonathan Ebbs, Adventure Camp Society
Lake Babine Nation Treaty Office
The Spark team always had time to work through any issues, were willing to patiently walk through how the site would work with a group that were not familiar or comfortable with technology and website management, were very adaptable when new issues arose or plans changed, and were always able and willing to contribute new ideas and refine those that were put forward by the staff to come up with the best possible website.
- Blake Bouchard, Lake Babine Nation Treaty Office

Go Haida Gwaii
Great design - creative, looks great, and pleasing to the eye! Spark was always helpful, quick in response request, and nice gang to work with!
- Jenn Dolen, Go Haida Gwaii
I am no expert in the whole website business, so I had and still have a lot of questions and they always take their time to explain it in simple terms. A problem I had with the google map was solved the same evening. It turned out really well, and the fact, that I can change the content at any time allowed me to launch the site even though it isn't quite perfect yet.... but the exposure is there and I can update it at any time.
- Barbara Luther, Logpile Lodge
Tourism Smithers has had the pleasure of working with Sandra and her team at Spark for many years. We have had two websites constructed, lots of great support and insight. They take the time to understand our needs and to make suggestions to improve the project. In addition to web design and support, Spark has created web ads, and managed print projects, including two trail guides in the last year. The work is great and the support is much appreciated. It is easy to recommend the Spark Design team.
- Gladys Atrill, Tourism Smithers
Hi ... I'm emailing from the UK. We are trying to pull together an itinerary for our 2012 'excursion' and I've just had a wonderful afternoon ingratiating and immersing myself in your website. Whoever had the vision and thought to compose and compile such a BRILLIANTly informative document should be commended. It does both the designer/compiler/builder and the township of Smithers a tremendous deal of credit. I would just like to convey a very sincere 'thank you' We may not see 'you' personally but we SHALL most certainly see Smithers next year.

All my questions were answered promptly and thoroughly. Our site is really easy to update, upload photos, create links, etc. The help manual is also handy so I can answer my own simple questions really quickly - I like that they are training me to be more self-sufficient. I appreciate that even if the first person I speak with can't answer my question I am quickly passed on to someone who can. I appreciate the swiftness of the response.

- Kim Martinsen, Village of Telkwa
This has been a very positive experience! Staff are able to update the content on our website much more easily than in the past. There is very little training required and the staff at Spark Design are very helpful with any questions. The CMS is definitely made for "non-techies"!

Skeena Wild Salmon
Spark Design is incredibly easy to work with and has a fabulous creative team with great vision. They're very personable and approachable. In the process of website development they are always available and ready to work with you. Specifically, Spark Design was able to see our vision, to appreciate it, and help us reach our end game...a global model in the Skeena River. They understand the issues and are therefore able to use their creative skills in the most effective way.
- Julia Hill, Skeena Wild Salmon
Very friendly and supportive staff, eager to help and find solutions and options. Always good at giving info on what is taking place and where things are at and attention to detail. Good communication within the team and to the client. Looking forward to working with you guys in the future.
- Giacum Frei, Skeena Heliskiing
The web design, color and ability to manipulate text and graphics is EXCELLENT!
- Linda Parker, Cambria Gordon
The new website looks great! The website itself is very easy to manage, and it has really helped bring our communications/marketing efforts into the 21st century. In cases where we're not sure about something, we know that Spark is just a quick, friendly phone call away and the service is excellent.
We're very pleased with the quality of work on our new website and we would absolutely work with Spark again on any web or print design and am happy to recommend Spark to other businesses.
- Jacqueline Skalin, Cybernet Communications
Vancouver Naturopathic Clinic
Our new website is a huge improvement over our older website which was extremely difficult to use. Our new website is very easy to and our staff actually enjoy updating it.
We have nothing but good things to tell you about Spark. They took the time to find out what we really needed an were full of good suggestions that continue to benefit our practice. They know their stuff. We trust them, and that is a big relief because we're not techies. We're doctors!

BC Guided Hunting
I have limited experience with web based advertising, whenever I had an issue Spark Design was there to set me straight and explain to me in detail what needed to be done or what could be done to maximize my advertising potential.
- Clint Larson, BC Guided Hunting
When I have requested a change to the web site, they are prompt, as well as upbeat. I would definitely recommend Spark Design.

Arctic Response Canada Ltd
Much improved from previous website. Functional, user-friendly, and good use of space. Fast responses to requests, were willing to adapt original proposal, and gave good instructions. Offered non-biased advice about, and an outsiders perspective on, the effectiveness of the design and content. Extremely patient! Quite happy to answer the same question being asked in a dozen ways. Excellent interpersonal skills which really helped me stay relaxed!
