raves & reviews

“Oh my god! Who is your web designer?” That is the continual feedback I get when customers view my website. I continue to get rave reviews and great increases in my business with customers telling me it is my website that really makes them choose me over others in my business. Sunni has the unique gift of really being able to capture the essence of the person or place she is designing for and manifest that into an incredible website! I am truly touched by her talent and gift for design and beauty! I was just telling someone the other day — her work is like the difference between looking at a picture of a place and actually BEING THERE. Her work truly brings its subject to life!” — Eva Ghioni, LMFT


“Sunni is a design goddess. It’s enough that she has an artist vision, but add to that her professionalism and attention to detail. I’ve done three site designs with her, and each time she’s been equally…

• responsive to my emails,
• aware of what I needed, even when I couldn’t communicate it clearly,
• and suggested elements I wouldn’t have thought of on my own.

I know what I’m going to get when I contract Sunni. I get WOW-factor. My brand is augmented and I’m set apart from the rest of the crowd. Trust me–she’s worth every penny.” — Kate Perry, Author


“Several years ago I stumbled across a website that really caught my attention. It was so beautiful and different than any other site I’d ever seen that I scrolled down to the bottom see who had designed it. I never forgot the name The Salty Olive and when it was finally time to rebrand and redesign my own website, I knew that it had to be Sunni.

Having Sunni rebrand and redesign my site was one of the best business decisions I’ve ever made. The whole experience felt like a facelift for my business – inside and out. Sunni’s carefully planned process helped me to examine my big vision and the long-term goals for my business, as well as helping me to clarify my ideal client. And that was huge.

There is no question that having good branding and beautiful design has helped me and my team to focus on marketing and business expansion with confidence. If I’m being brutally honest, I was sometimes embarrassed by my old site and branding, and I can now see how much that held us back. Sunni’s redesign has been essential in giving us the momentum needed to take things to the next level.

Besides being an absolute joy to work with, I’m convinced that Sunni is part designer, part business coach and part mind-reader. Her insights throughout our rebranding process were priceless, and her confident, yet easy-going, manner made me always feel cared for. In terms of her design talents, Sunni has a way of incorporating color and texture and layout in a way that invites you in. I’ve never seen other website designs like hers – not even close. The whole experience of working with her was uplighting and exciting – so much more than I’d expected.

I would strongly recommend letting go of anything that is do-it-yourself, and say goodbye to any tired, dated or so-so brand design, and make the investment in a professional who is skilled and experienced. There’s just no question that expertly done brand design can help you take your business to the next level, and also allow you to take a deep, deep breath (boy, does that feel good). In my book that brand designer can only be Sunni. I couldn’t possibly recommend anyone else. She’s the bee’s knees!” — Pamela Haack, Strada Toscana


MY CLIENTS HAVE BEEN FEATURED IN PRESTIGIOUS PUBLICATIONS SUCH AS:


“I was looking for a designer that could truly bring the website I imagined to life, and found that in The Salty Olive. Sunni is truly an artist when it comes to design and was able to capture the “heart and soul of Italy” for my potential clients. She is extremely professional and yet personable at the same time. I love my new website and could not imagine working with anyone else!” — Darcy Hemstreet, Ciao Darcy


“I have had a fantastic experience working with Sunni at The Salty Olive! Sunni is so very talented, creative, responsive and professional! This is the 2nd website Sunni has developed for me and all I can say is WOW… she once again has succeeded to far surpass my expectations! I would recommend her without hesitation… Thank you so much for all Sunni.” — Shelah, NOE Undergarments


“Our company provides a unique service (Travel to Africa) for a unique customer. We struggled to find a website designer that understood a high end look and feel for Africa (paw prints and looming elephants was what most people gave us) and embraced our high level of service and customization and translated it into an incredibly beautiful look and design. When we found Sunni, we knew she was the one that could pull it off. And she did! We are so happy with our website design and it’s something we could never have done on our own. We get so many great comments on the website. Sunni was a dream to work with and more importantly, because the look of our website now matches the service we provide, our website inquiries have tripled!! Thank you Sunni for sharing your unique gift with us! — Meredith Hill, CEO, Hills of Africa Travel


“Sunni has a sixth sense when it comes to creating outstanding contemporary design for us. Her aesthetic talent is remarkable. She’s always a pleasure to work with. I easily give her six stars.” — Bev Sanders, Founder, Manifesta Corporation


“Sunni created a beautiful, customized web site for my business last year. Since I had never worked on a web site prior to that time, she had to patiently guide me on the content I needed to write and the proper focus to best represent my business.

Working with Sunni was very easy, and the finished web site exceeded my expectations. It has generated many compliments within the travel industry and was given a Gold Magellan Award for travel excellence in creative design and superior travel content.

I would recommend Sunni for her unique, high level visual design skills on customized web sites and for her ease in coordinating all of the project elements with the client.” — Judy Bongiorno, Bon Voyage Travel


“I wish I had known Sunni and her company years ago. I have three companies with three websites and frankly my other two are embarassing compared to what Sunni and her team created for me. I receive more compliments (and business!) from my site than I ever imagined, and I always say the same thing, “I wish I could take credit but I cannot.” I couldn’t be happier with the service and quality of the work. I consider myself creative and have a hard time letting others make things on my behalf—but Sunni managed to create something that felt totally, authentically me—only better. I can’t wait to send more people to her.” — Nikki Horgan, Raku International


“After seeing the beautiful designs created by Sunni, I instantly knew I had found the right web designer. Sunni is very creative, incredibly easy to work with, and she really takes the time to understand your vision, and implement it. I have gotten SO many compliments on my site design. Thank you again, Sunni, for delivering an elegant, warm, and simply beautiful site!” — Edie Zuckerwar, The Organic Traveller


“We had been searching for a company for over a year that could transform our ideas and objectives for a new website design into so much more than just a traditional website. Artistic appeal and branding were both paramount in our decision. And after just a few discussion with Sunni, she went straight to work. Her turn around time on the comps was impressive. Plus when we saw the comps, we couldn’t believe how “on target” the designs were. Sunni’s talent for understanding the importance of branding and translating ideas into reality is impressive! We were so thrilled with her work and work ethic that we hired her to design our online and print brochures and business cards. She is wonderful to work with and we highly recommend her! Clients are always telling me how spectacular and impressive the website is” — Christy Destremau, Off The Beaten Path France & Roam Adventures for Women


I wanted an author page that was unique and beautiful, that drew readers in and captured their imagination. Sunni gave me exactly that, on time and on budget. All that, and she was a pleasure to work with too. — Liz Michalski, author of Evenfall


“Sunni Chapman has helped our business immensely. Her vision and design of our website had a sudden impact for our wedding business. We saw our business grow over 30% since the inception of our new site. countless potential clients constantly comment “wow, you have an amazing website that brought us to your business.” — Kelly & Douglas Dalisa, Monte Verde Inn


“Sunni Chapman not only has a wonderful design aesthetic, she is a pure pleasure to work with. Friendly, professional, and hard-working, Sunni goes the extra mile to make certain you’re happy with your website—and I’m definitely happy with mine.” — Therese Walsh, Author
