What my clients have said:
EK Media has done so much to professionalize our communications. Melissa has used her superb design skills to create program materials, event collateral, annual reports, and social media/email graphics. She quickly responds to all our requests and her turn-around time is even more impressive – small tasks within hours, larger tasks within days. Melissa is a consummate professional, and it is always a pleasure to work with her. From our perspective, it seems as if “yes” is her favorite word.
“ekMEDIA has been pivotal helping us shape the fast growing company we are today. Melissa makes herself available to a team of over 6+ marketing managers to fulfill many last minute requests and always delivers ahead of deadline. She works expediently, giving us dollar-over-dollar, the best marketing value around. Most importantly, she never sacrifices creative quality for speed and consistently… ekMEDIA’s careful attention to detail makes us feel as if we were her only client. I’d strongly recommend you enlist EkMedia for any sized project.”
“Melissa, I think you can read my mind….when I only have time to give you a few bulletpoints you send me back a masterpiece. When I think there is too much direction, you design something surprisingly elegant. I always open your email immediately because it’s great to see how you make our ideas come to life, often better than imagined, and I frequenly turn to your work when I need to demonstrate effective creative. Thanks!”
“We have worked with Melissa’s company on behalf of two clients, and I’m consistently appreciative of her attention to detail, quality of work, and willingness to brainstorm when a new solution is needed. I respect her approach to work, client service and time management. She is creative, on top of new marketing tools and social media strategies, and gives support and counsel that’s both tactical and strategic. Highly recommend!”
“We not only needed a website to express our professional development, we needed a trusted advisor to create an online presence that reflects our uniqueness. Melissa delivered a useful, well-organized and interactive website. In addition, she continues to be extremely helpful in its maintenance. ekMEDIA has gone above and beyond on several occasions. Melissa’s suggestions are genuinely made in our best interests, she creates quality work, and her turn-around time is fantastic. We very much enjoy working with Melissa and would highly recommend ekMEDIA to anyone.”
“You won’t find any better than ekMEDIA. Their portfolio speaks for itself. They are one of the few design companies that truly “understands” web design and is the only company I like to work with no matter the size or scope of project.”
“I consulted with ekMEDIA when I first started my business.
What started with a powerful logo design has grown into a purpose-driven, results-oriented marketing campaign including business cards, coupons, web design, template creation–ekMEDIA has been with me every step of the way. The response time, attention to detail, creativity, and final products have been outstanding. ekMEDIA has been a huge asset to my business.”
“Melissa was a client of mine (DogBoy’s Dog Ranch) before I became a client of hers. She has done and redone our websites and ad work for years and I would never use anyone else.
Melissa is not only a wonderful person to work with, but her turnaround time is incredible, and her creativity and talent is unmatched. She has done wonderful work with our sites, and always comes to me with new ideas of ways to make our site better. Recently she redid our website and gave us the power to make updates ourselves – this saved us money and made updating our site even easier, but we still always ask for the pro when we need anything complicated or creative done. She is the master! I highly HIGHLY recommend Ek Media for any of your website or ad creation needs. She ROCKS!”
“I have had the pleasure of working with Melissa for nearly two years as a freelance web and email designer. In my work as an Interactive Marketing Consultant, I need to be able to help develop a client’s vision and make it a reality, and partnering with Melissa makes that job so much easier. She is so well-versed in what works visually in the online space, that it is easy to convey a concept and have her produce a design that is spot-on! In addition to the extremely high-quality of work, Melissa is so easy to work with as far as coordinating dates for deliverables and efficiently turning around revisions. I’ve really enjoyed working with Melissa and I have several clients who have expressed their delight with the designs that Melissa has produced. I highly recommend Melissa for your design needs and I personally look forward to working with her on future projects together.”
“Melissa Ek is one of my most valued and trusted colleagues. I count on ekMEDIA for my own company’s online presence, and have brought her in as a partner to develop websites for a number of my clients. Without exception, the companies and organizations I work with have been very pleased with Melissa’s service, professionalism and results.
Melissa is one of those rare professionals who consistently delivers quality and value, and is always a joy to work with.”
“ekMEDIA was a godsend when it came to creating our all-new, Incredible website! She created a fun design that truly captures our brand, worked diligently to complete the site on time, and we ended up with a beautiful new site. I get regular comments on the quality of the site, and our visitor counts keep going up and up. What’s more, Melissa’s expertise in working with small companies allows our franchisees to get their own site live in a very short amount of time.”
“I am completely satisfied – not only with the work that we contracted [ekMEDIA] to do, but also with the feedback and suggestions that you have made – that we didn’t know to ask for! Thanks again.”
“As VP, Marketing at HomeAway, I was introduced to Melissa during the summer of 2006. Our relationship marketing strategy relied heavily, almost exclusively, on email marketing, and I was in desperate need of a creative resource. When I met Melissa, I knew from her smile and “can do” attitude that we’d make a great team. Almost immediately, she proved me right.
She understood the brand(s), the mission and our sense of urgency in a way that was uncanny. Together with the HomeAway marketing team, Melissa went on to produce close to 100 email campaigns for multiple HomeAway brands between mid-2006 and the end of 2007. She consistently nailed the creative — not just the design and the html, but often the copy, too. And her turnaround time was remarkable. We pushed Melissa to produce on ridiculously short notice and she delivered, time after time after time — in hours, not days — astonishing me many times with the speed and quality of her work.
Bottom line — I would recommend Melissa to anyone seeking a creative digital resource. She wraps intelligence, discipline, creativity and technical prowess with a warm smile and infectiously positive attitude — and she gets the job done right, the first time. Not surprising to me that the team at HomeAway continues to rely on Melissa’s talent in marketing initiatives today.”
