Jillian Saxty at First Flight Designs offers dependable, responsive, caring web support at a first class level of design and service, yet at a price level that a small business can consider. I was grateful to meet Jillian and find that she offered technical and design skills to fulfill the vision and ideas I had for my web site. Jillian helped turn it around on a good timeline, deliver a beautifully-designed site with a fresh logo, and has helped coach me since to manage the site, troubleshoot, and leverage its opportunity. I recommend First Flight Designs to create a web presence that will be a source of pride for your business.
Before I started working with Jill Saxty, marketing my first book was quickly becoming a nightmare; Jill made it a dream. She created the web site, set up and taught me how to do the back-end e-commerce and even connected me to great marketing opportunities. Jill cares deeply about her work and, equally as important, she cares deeply about my work, too.

Jillian has been a joy to work with and a lifesaver for Alameda Ballet Academy and Alameda Civic Ballet. Every year local businesses look forward to displaying our new posters and printing our ads because of their beauty. She brings a sense of playful whimsy to her designs that have worked well for the creative side of our businesses. At the same time she has been instrumental in teaching us how to navigate and constantly update the business side of our organization from a marketing and advertising perspective while keeping the costs within our budget and always meeting our deadlines. Having designed and built both of our websites, Jillian is constantly looking out for us, making sure we keep the sites up to date and informative for our clients.

I have been working with Jill on graphic and web based project for several years. She has always delivered a quality product while meeting my deadlines and expectations. She is creative and intelligent and has never backed down from a programming project even if the language is new to her. I highly recommend her for design and web based needs.

Working with Jill on my recently completed website was a joy. She understood from our first meeting what I wanted and outlined the general format my site. She offered lots of ideas and options and was insistent on getting feedback from me. She is also aware of non-graphic website issues like maintaining privacy, search engines maximization, domain names and web hosting sites; all issues I was not familiar with. Working with Jill was was great. She listened to my ideas, but elevated them with her experience, knowledge and creative flair.
