Hiring a professional to create a website was a good business decision. Choosing a professional who will facilitate your vision rather than what they think your vision should be (because that’s what they want implement) is the key to success. Helix River expertly rebuilt my website a few years ago. When it came time for a new look, streamlined update functionality and portability to mobile, they were my first choice. Other than just being a great guy to know, Ryan really listens to what you need and gently guides you to great decisions that ultimately make your vision real.

Helix River has mastered the art of finding the exact Wordpress theme for your needs and then customizing it to the point where it suits your company perfectly. Ryan has a way of crafting the site to entice your traffic into clicking where you want them to click and looking where you want them to look. He is also very good at explaining exactly what he is doing and how it works. To a non-designer like myself that really goes a long way in understanding the incredible amount of work and skill that goes into this process. Ryan is fast, easy to work with, talented, and frankly an artist in the craft of website design.

I felt overwhelmed at the thought of creating a new web site. It seemed like a "Mission Impossible." But Ryan Thompson of Helix River led me through the process from conception to completion. His expertise and experience gave me the confidence to stay focused. He was very responsive to my questions; and he patiently clarified my confusion. I especially appreciated his willingness to create "how to" videos so that I could maintain my site. As new issues arrived, he has been available to help me even after the original contract was completed.
