Thanks for your prompt reply. You’re always so comprehensive. If we could write another review just for your communication skills, then we would.

Working with Joseph was a dream come true for our growing company! He is extremely skilled, reliable, a great communicator, a fast worker, and delivers a top notch product. He worked with us patiently and effectively throughout every step of the process in designing our new website. Everything that we brought to him was addressed with the utmost in clarity and professionalism, he simply “knows his sh!t” and knows how to work with people on top of all that. Joseph set up our website in a way that has left our team feeling empowered to maintain, edit and use it as an effective tool for growing our business moving forward. We are also comforted by the fact that we know we can call on his any time we need help and that he will be able to help us out. Having sorted through many web developers before finally landing on Joseph I can say that I have zero regrets about the decision and would strongly recommend you pick him if you’re thinking about it!

Joe helped us get our new website up and running on a very aggressive schedule. I’m sure we’ll be using him again for this and other projects. His work is fantastic and he was very responsive to all of our requests. He was able to start right away and kept us posted and things went along. Don’t hesitate to hire him for your job.
John Leeman

Joe did an excellent job with everything I asked of him and completed the work on time. He kept me posted with updates along the way and made this project very easy for me.
Porter Bratten

Joe was a breeze to work with. Very knowledgeable, responsive, and efficient. Would definitely work with him again and would recommend him to others as well. Thank you Joe!
Luna Dermatology

The operation of our hotel in Maine is very dependent on our website and the interaction with our reservation software. I spent over 10K last year for a new website, seo optimization, and monthly monitoring. Of all three companies, no one delivered. Last February, our website was hacked, and we could not get business.
I found Joe DiDomenico through a friend. He cleared it up in 2 days, including making all the buttons function and increasing the speed.
Joe saved us and fixed everything for a small fraction of what we paid last year. At present, we are up 50% over bookings last year. Joe cleans our site once a month and does it in less than an hour. Many thanks to Joe.
Alan Firpo

Joseph is a total rock star. What a pleasure! I absolutely loved working with him, and am now hiring him for a large project, and ongoing website support. He’s incredibly knowledgeable, fast, insightful, and supportive. Hire him.

Joe is great to work with. Weather it be a big job or just a little fix. He’s friendly and communicates well about what he is going to do. I will always contact him first.

It was a real pleasure to work with Joe to renovate our web site. He is a real professional who was able to quickly shepherd our vision into a functional & ascetic reality. Joe did this in a very cost-effective way while always keeping our best interests front and center. We look forward to continuing our relationship with Joe and recommend him without hesitation.

Joe has helped my company grow tremendously. I cannot say enough about this freelancer. If you are looking for someone to develop a high quality product who truly understands who things “work Joe if your man. He’s also a great person to know. A+++++++ ALL THE WAY!
Bruce Goldberg

Joseph delivered my project on time, within budget and with better quality than I ever hoped for! I gave Joseph specific requirements for certain aspects and “turned him loose” creatively for other aspects. Both he delivered exceptionally well and FAST! Joseph is the perfect marriage of left brained engineer and right brained artist. He’s Linus Torvalds and Pablo Picasso, Yin and Yang! Add to all that the fact that he is super communicator and just a very easy person to work with and you got great experience all around. Thank you again Joseph!
Tony Medeiros

I can’t say enough good things about my project with Joe. Our website was a real challenge as it was an old piecemealed zencart design that was originally very badly setup with features that were not transferable to later versions. Joe transformed with creative solutions it into the vision I had in mind, and giving us maximum flexibility to let it move forward in the future. I really appreciated that he found cost effective solutions to problems, no one else was able to address. . I had just hoped to get the problems corrected, instead I received a total makeover from a real professional. His design ideas were excellent, and he fully listened to my ideas and readily incorporated them. I will be using Joe again in the near future for further enhancements, and really would think of using no one else. He is spectacular!

Joe is as great of a person to work with as his other testimonials state. His knowledge and communication is top notch. He works quickly and adds tremendous value along the way. Joe not only understands web development and design but he understands online business and the perspective of the online merchant/service provider. His knowledge is up to date and his deep background in the evolution of having an online presence helps you navigate where your business is headed. I will continue to work with Joe in upcoming projects. I can’t emphasize enough the comprehensive value he provides.
Jason Van Veldhuysen

Owner, Precision Stricking

We were very happy with the quality of work done by Joe. Joe was very responsive to setting up meetings, addressing concerns, providing ideas, as well as being open to our suggestions, once he validated that our suggestions could be accomplished. Great communications and Joe stuck to timelines.

I was having, (and had been having), many problems with my web hosting company So I searched, and found Joe @ embryodesign. Best move I ever made. Not only did all of my problems vanish, but because of the personal service Joe gives, my website is 100% better. He made design changes to my site that added much needed aesthetics and professionalism that I wasn’t even aware of until I saw the finished product. After several months now, not one problem. Site never goes down. If I need something done, I e-mail or call Joe and he’s either there, or gets back to me right away. I pride myself on the service I give to my customers. A rare trait these days. I finally found a hosting company that shares the same pride. Thanks Joe! I’m so glad you’re there!
Dave Kear – Owner

From the development of ideas, to the launching of our web site, Joe led the way creatively and visually to provide Fantasy Candies with everything we were hoping for…and more. Having a large variety of products and information, we were concerned that navigation would be difficult. Joe was able to design a site that not only looks great, but is easy to work. From editing our photos and descriptions, to online ordering and secure payment, Joe took care of everything, and with quick turnaround time. Updates and changes are always done quickly. I would highly recommend Joe and Embryo design to any company that wants the best of everything.
Joel Fink

President, Fantasy Candies

After spending months of frustration trying to find the right developer, working with Joe was like a breath of fresh air. He is the absolute best Zencart designer on oDesk period. The quality of his work is amazing, his design skills are unmatched and his communication skills are as good as it gets. Not only he is awesome at what he does, but he is also a great person to work with and has tons of ideas that he brings to the table. His work turnaround is lightning fast, some of the changes we requested were done so fast that we didn’t have time to blink. He truly understands eCommerce, Zencart and brings a wealth of knowledge from previous experience. Being pretty technical ourselves we truly value Joe’s professionalism and the quality of his work: Any bug is fixed within minutes (maybe seconds?), his code is 100% clean and he takes great pride at documenting everything he does. If you’re looking for the best Zencart designer out there, Joe is the person you want to work with. Not only the results will exceed all your expectations, but he will also save you money long term by doing the job right the very first time. We consider Joe an integral part of our team and will be working with him on an ongoing basis as we develop our business and our website.

All I needed was some consultation about Zen Cart and wow, did I get just what I needed. In one phone call I learned everything I needed to learn and saved time and $.
Tom Acousti

You really get what you pay for with Joe. He does more than simply build a website, he sets up websites for success. Functional, clean, professional designs and he keeps up/implements the latest plugins and technology. Thank you Joe. I will continue to refer you work.
Mark Winger

The best WordPress guy I’ve worked with on WordPress, hands-down (and I’ve worked with dozens). Remarkably good with theme customizations with a quick turn. Kept it on budget as well. A rarity with hourly contracts.
Nate Wright

I have the honor to say that I worked with Joe on several projects and he is a true professional. He is attentive to details, is well versed, and takes the time to educate you to assist in better understanding the task at hand. Joe is capable of looking at a project and determining what works and what doesn’t. Additionally, he is always willing to suggest alternatives when the grand vision is not attainable. There is never a “no”, but a “what can I do”.
Brenda Vazquez

Vice President, American Hotel & Lodging Association

To give Joe a 5 star rating is an understatement of his work. Joe is the personification of “you get what you pay for.” He is a good, prompt and courteous communicator, consistently on-line and available. He thinks through the details. Makes suggestions when appropriate, says no when ideas can cause problem and has an eye for good design. Here is the story.
We needed to implement ZenCart and hired Joe after a previous contractor seemed to go nowhere with our installation.
The first thing I noticed about Joe was his honesty and care about the project. After looking at what was installed, he showed us that the installed version was outdated, and while he was willing to work on that version, in the future we’d face a migration that would be more cumbersome after the system was loaded. When we asked if the new version of ZC was stable, he pointed us to several of his customers that were successfully running the new version.
In about half the time it took the previous contractor to install the package, Joe did the same but his version worked, looked attractive and easy on the eye. In addition, he installed several add-on modules that we needed and use regularly.
We then went through a whole bunch of system changes. Not only he was quick responding, but he suggested and anticipated things that we had not considered. He treated our project with care beyond our expectations.
On more than one occasion when we asked for some esoteric modification, he did the research, explained what it takes to make the change, and then promptly cut himself out of some work by explaining how the suggested change will reduce the system’s maintainability.
When the system went on line and a user discovered a bug, he fixed the bug so quickly that when we asked the user to try it agin, she actually doubted if the bug ever existed.
Finally his work is so good and he has saved us so much time, that while our budget is tight, we have unanimously decided to give Joe a bonus. We feel lucky to work with Joe.

Joe had the skills with Zen Cart, PHP, HTML, CSS and Javascript that were needed to do the job. His work quality and delivery were excellent. He met my deadlines and kept his promised deadlines. Joe communicates well and answers the questions I should have asked. Five stars in all categories? Yup. I question those reviews, but my experience with Joe has been such that I have no reason to use less stars. I WILL rehire Joe for future projects. Joe has been the only bright spot of using oDesk as a service and is the only reason I will use oDesk in the future.

Outstanding programmer. Turned the job quickly, did a good job quality checking his work and even suggested some great functionality I hadn’t considered. I’ll hire Joe again any time!
Edward Gutierrez

Very happy with his work, very helpful and great to work with, would rehire.
Simon

I really needed someone who could jump on a Zen cart project in a tight fix. Needed someone who understood Zen cart and could work under little to know direction on a list of problems and fix’s that we needed. Also needed someone I could get a hold of at any given time as well. Joe was all of these things. His work is excellent and on top of it he’s a real nice guy which makes it even better. Would highly recommend Joe to anyone looking for an experienced Zen cart specialist.

So nice working with you, you do such good, fast efficient work. Can’t wait to work with you again in the future. Thank you.

Hi! I just wanted to send you a little note to let you know how well the website is doing. I can’t thank you enough for all the time and effort you have put into this project, it is most impressive. I am confident that we have the most eye-catching site in town, I get nothing but a score of compliments from our patronage. Thanks so much for your input and work!
Cathina L Gunn

Have I mentioned how much Embryo Design rules? They did a great job – especially in light of the fact that I am clueless about the internet most of the time. I’m already getting compliments on how the site is like 400x better than before. I will definitely call upon you for your services again.
Inga Hyatt

Manager of Communications, Praxis Housing Initiatives, Inc.

I can’t say enough about our new website. With Joe’s direction and design skills we’re finally represented on the web the way we deserve to be. Plus, if we see the need to edit or emphasize certain categories of our business Joe is able to make changes almost instantly.
Mark Pyle

President, Environmental Pest & Lawn Services, Inc.

I love the website that Joe designed for me! I get lots of compliments from my customers about how beautiful and easy to use it us. And Joe is great to work with. He welcomed my input during the design process and spent lots of time patiently teaching me how to operate my new site. Several years later, he still is available if I have a question, and I am always amazed by how quickly he responds! Joe is creative, professional, and trustworthy – I highly recommend entrusting your website design to him.
Laura J Benson

I am extremely satisfied with my website. With very little guidance from me, Embryo Designs created a site that more than met my expectations. Their suggestions were excellent and the attention to detail was appreciated. Embryo does great work, is flexible and its prices are reasonable. I’ve already recommended them to half a dozen people.
Christopher Murphy

Schleppie Publishing

As a new company, we realize how critical to business a well-designed website can be. We searched for a web designer whose portfolio was extensive and varied, and one that we felt would provide us guidance on developing an effective site that would convey OUR passion and message. We found Embryo Design to be all of those things and more. We are thrilled with the final design, the recommendations provided, and the true ongoing working relationship we have.
Mona L. Reaves

President; Special Event Personal Consultant , A Unique Event

It was a pleasure work with Joe at Embryo Design for the initial development of my company’s website. Although I gave Joe a tight deadline for developing my website and making it live, Joe met the challenge and exceeded my expectations. Joe’s professional input, expertise, and creativity allowed him to create a website that projects my company’s image, purpose, and vision. I hope to continue our relationship in the future.

Oh wow this is a great job that you’ve done listing all these things out in detail. You definitely need to be proud of this. I just want to say you are awesome!!! Great work Joe!

My Contractor, Joe DiDomenico, is absolutely the greatest. He was the ultimate professional, personable, reliable, and competent contractor and I will hire him again every time I need something done and done right. He was very timely but didn’t do a rush job. He gave the job the time it deserved while being mindful of my financial needs. I fully recommend Joe to anyone that wants a professional that’s honest and that genuinely cares about the job at hand. I really feel like he is on my team, fully invested in the success of my enterprise. Thank you Joe DiDomenico for a great job and for making me comfortable throughout this time. I was nervous about this whole thing but you quickly turned that around and I actually enjoyed the process.
Kelly

Absolutely brilliant. Took him no time at all to figure out the fix. Would highly recommend and would gladly hire again!
