“The initial work delivered was satisfactory but after the initial tasks were completed we entered into a constant bickering of what was in scope and what wasn't. Even after I thought these scope issues were resolved and we were in agreement, the contractor constantly insisted for extra funds to complete the remaining tasks.
This would have been bearable, but in addition the code delivered (XHTML and CSS) was of marginal quality at best and required my own effort to bring to production level quality. I closed the job with only 2 of 5 tasks completed. I would not recommend this contractor.”
“The terms are written in my proposal to the scope. I do this for every project, and will for yours too. The terms were written out specifically. If you hire us and want a video or animation or commercial, that will not be an assumed aspect of the job. It will be itemized and written out. I tried to explain this to the client.
Furthermore, you can see we started out OK. Once we exceeded the budget and tasks from the clients requests, I in turn requested more funds. This is any business in the world, we must be compensated for the time to complete your work.
I certainly do not recommend this person for anything: not for their business, not as a client, not as a friend. His behavior and attitude is abhorrent.
I am sorry it did not work out in the end with us and this client, but I cannot back down to bullies and boorish thugs who treat people and companies like doormats to appease their own needs and ego. If you want a video, you will have to be charged for it. If you want 4 pages - not 2 - then that will be written out.
I wrote out the terms, and yet this client wanted to add more and more, with no compensation. There is no business in the world who will do that.”
“Robert (kozweb) is an extremely talented web and graphic designer. His input is (and will continue to be) so critical towards making our website a success. His technological expertise was valuable, but his design intuition and feedback into how our website should function was even more important.
I would HIGHLY recommend him!”
