Client Impact

  • Our ministry was looking to do a refresh for our website and I decided to research some website designers in my local area, I found this company called Purple Fish Creative and spoke with the owner Sue Colao. I began to tell her my challenges with our old website and what I appreciate about our initial conversation was her ability to listen and then offer a roadmap that would address my concerns. The service that she provided our ministry goes beyond her technical skills, she treats you like a real client and not just a number like many other companies. Sue's expertise and creative prowess made our new website look amazing and we continue to get compliments from those that view our page. I'm so happy I found her. If you want special attention for your upcoming project and someone who knows how to take your vision to the next level I strongly recommend Purple Fish Creative for all your website and graphic needs.

  • It has been a pleasure working with Purple Fish. She completely redid our two business websites: Classic Party & Equipment Rental and Carolina Outdoor Builder. She also created new logos and does all the maintenance on our sites. She made the process so easy. If I ever have a question or issue I just send an email and she has me an answer the same day usually within a couple of hours. We have gotten great feedback on our website and feel that it has helped increase sales. I would highly recommend Purple Fish.

  • I'm a jewelry designer who had an existing website with and my shop page existed thru Etsy. I wanted to have my website to have it's own e-commerce platform, so I worked with Sue of Purple Fish Creative to convert my shop over to Shopify. My revamped website is beautiful and perfectly on brand for my jewelry designs. Sue was fantastic to work with- very patient with me thru out the process since it's always a huge project to design or redesign a website. I'd highly recommend Purple Fish Creative for web design and their other services.

  • Purple Fish Creative is a great company to work with and built our company a great website. They are always responsive and willing to do what it takes to get the job done right, and they are very reliable and timely. We interviewed several marketing firms to build our website and social media presence, and it was clear right away that Purple Fish was the right choice. We have been very happy with their customer service and attention to detail. I highly recommend Purple Fish for both your website and SEO needs. I know that Purple Fish will do what is needed to be sure that you are completely satisfied. We are very excited to be working with Sue and her team at Purple Fish, and I know that we are going to be doing business with Purple Fish for a long time and gladly recommend them to anyone.

  • I had the pleasure of working with Sue on not one but two projects for our company Jernigan Oil and Duck Thru Convenience Stores. Sue and I working on revamping one website as well as building another from scratch. I told Sue exactly what I had in mind and she made it reality! On one of the websites, we wanted to highlight our food offerings, and Sue went as far as to coordinate a photographer to get the necessary pictures! I highly recommend Purple Fish Creative for any web design you may have!

  • We started working with PurpleFish Creative on the website for one of our portfolio companies after we noticed that they had done an amazing site for a similar company in our industry. We really liked the collaborative approach and they made the back & forth easy, and showed a LOT of patience when I was slow to provide feedback. We liked their work so much we ended up using them for several of our other companies, and will continue to do so! Highly recommended.

  • My agency has worked with Sue at Purple Fish for years now. She's my go-to contractor for all of our web design overflow. She's able to adapt to how my agency builds websites, so we don't skip a beat when the transition happens to the client and we begin our monthly maintenance. I'd highly recommend her and her company whether you're small business, corporate, franchise, or another agency looking to outsource work. She's top notch. Not to mention, she's just a good person who cares about her work and her clients! People like her are hard to come by!
