As David’s teammate at UCEAP for the past four years, I’ve benefited from David’s creative problem solving, strong work ethic, and willingness to go above and beyond to complete projects. David played an active role in the completion of collaborative web projects and in bridging the gap between IT and Marketing. His expertise in graphic design and interest in instructional design and technology made him a valuable collaborator. As a colleague, I found David to be generous with his time and expertise, which includes expert-level knowledge of Adobe Creative Suite. His sense of humor and good nature made tight deadlines much easier for the project teams.

When I contacted Mallen Designs, I had no presence on the internet. David developed a comprehensive website for my business. He took my concepts and fashioned them into a website to convey my ideas with maximum effect. As my business has grown, David has been responsive to any changes I have needed.
David Billingsley, PrincipalLaw Office of David Billingsley
Although I am in the creative business, I found it overwhelming to design my own web site. It is difficult to creatively present over 50 images, but David listened to my professional needs and came up with a useful, appealing and elegant design that has already increased my business. His easy manner makes what could be a stressful experience a great experience!
