"I was hired to project manage and write the content for a website relaunch, and Catherine Haugland of Avalon Rose Design had been hired to design a new website. I served as the liaison between the website owner and Catherine, and oversaw Catherine’s work on the website:
Catherine is a talented website designer and great to work with. As an amazingly visual designer she also has brilliant web skills, and an eye for what is practical as well as visually appealing. Catherine was exceptionally good at understanding the project needs and our audience profile, and was very innovative in identifying solutions and ideas to meet our website goals.
Catherine was dependable and professional throughout the project - at times under very stressful circumstances and deadlines. She is a professional, detail-oriented website designer and I am happy to recommend her services."
"Since I have to go to it many times a day, I just keep loving it more each time I see it:) Its totally luxurious and has that French feel to it-love it-love it-love it, you captured exactly the mood and look I was looking for!! You are a very special lady with genuine talent and attention to detail! If I need another design I will only think of you. Thank You Again for all the beauty you created!"
"I first spoke to Catherine from Avalon Rose Design, we were able to have a quick consultation regarding The Juice Parlor's logo design for no charge. She listened carefully to our needs and we told her very vague details about what we wanted, and didn't want, and she was able to create her masterpieces with little to no information. It almost felt like she read our minds and executed our dream logo. What I appreciated the most was her ability to narrow down what we wanted and provide different options so that we can make the right decision. On top of that, she was sincere and honest, and provided us with detailed information on where to find images, other fonts, colors, sticker printing, and much more. She is very quick to respond to email and make edits. We can't wait to continue working with Catherine."

"I cannot express how much I love them--all of them. I'm tearing up. I'm just so grateful--grateful that we chose you."
"As a performing artist, I had a dilemma with my Website redesign. I could choose between gifted designers who were totally disorganized, or giant Web companies whose sites all looked like they were designed to sell software..
I stumbled upon Catherine on a Web search, and she has proven to be the porridge that was "just right."
I could tell from her spec designs that she understood the aesthetic I was looking for, and when I contacted her I was pleasantly surprised at both her graciousness and her reasonable prices.
As we worked on the design process, it was clear that she Gets It. She honestly tries to think like the client and provide what they are looking for but may not be able to express clearly.
As for her work, the results speak for themselves. Just visit http://www.HenningMagic.com and you'll see what I mean. By the way, it's not just a beautiful site, it's pulling in more business as well.
Her work more than paid for itself within a week. Your mileage may vary, but I think that if you hire Avalon Rose Designs, you'll be very pleased, not only with the journey but also with the destination."
"Catherine is hands-down one of the most creative graphic web designers I have ever had the pleasure of working with. She and I go way back, back to the early eBay days when she was my template designer. When the time came for me to branch out on my own, and start my own website business, there wasn't a doubt in my mind that Catherine would not only be able to execute all of my ideas, into the form of brilliant graphics and well designed pages, but that she would have the ability to make every page flow seamlessly and effortlessly for all my viewers. It is clear to me that the undeniable success of my online business today is mostly due to the sheer brilliance of my web designer, Catherine at Avalon Rose Design."

"As the owner of FrenchGardenHouse, I have worked with Catherine Haugland, the creative web designer and owner of Avalon Rose Design for many years. After she designed several projects for us in the past, she was the only web designer we considered when we needed to have our French Antique website designed.
Catherine developed a beautiful custom website for us, blending her extensive knowledge and creativity together with our suggestions, and using vintage inspired graphics to tell our story. Catherine had a true knack of figuring out what, exactly, was a good fit with our products and company image. She created precisely the online presence that our company, FrenchGardenHouse wanted, and gave us a business logo and "look" we are proud of.
In addition to designing our website and business cards, Avalon Rose Design produced several print designs for FrenchGardenHouse that we proudly use in our advertising campaigns in national magazines. I am looking forward to working with Catherine for a long time, she is professional, easy to work with, and extremely knowledgeable about the latest web technology. I highly recommend Avalon Rose Design if you are looking for a webdesigner who will work with you to create your own unique business identity with great style. "
