Words of Praise

"As Regional Marketing Manager at Sutter Health, a $6 billion health care organization in Northern California, I've worked with First Light Web Design on several key initiatives. Our Sonoma County Baby project, was developed -- from inception -- with Shane Barnes under tight deadlines and weekly reporting.  Shane was professional, prompt and fun. For those seeking top notch web design, reasonable pricing, spot-on timing and regular deliverables, I'd highly recommend First Light."
Sean Ralston

Regional Marketing Director | Sutter Health

"Shane Barnes at First Light Web Design is a pleasure to work with. I'm an estate planning lawyer in Southern Marin, and Shane has been the perfect combination of patient and proactive, helping me to move forward with this project. He's also very adept at explaining the technical details and the online security issues. If you need a top-notch professional to create or update your website, I'd recommend Shane in a heartbeat."
