Tristan designed and developed the firrst iteration of Travelbud’s website nearly three years ago. Since that time, he has constantly developed and updated the website with new features and design elements to optimize usability and conversion, and to improve our Google page rank.

The results have been phenomenal. Our increase in organic traffic and the increase number of conversions have directly impacted our bottom line such that our revenue has skyrocketed since he’s been involved.

A true professional and quality web developer.

Tristan Owen of Clickshape redeveloped the Cape Bar’s website. He implemented a professional design precisely in accordance with the Cape Bar’s specifications, and developed a powerful backend with complex database functionality.

Thanks to him, the website now ranks highly on Google due to the SEO optimization he performed, and continues to perform. He has also dramatically increased the number of enquiries that advocates receive through the website.

His service was impeccable throughout the development process, and continues to be so for monthly maintenance and updates.

I have been working with Tristan since 2014.

His professionalism, task orientated approach and design talent is leaps ahead of any designer.

His mix of analytical approach, design and delivery is why I thoroughly enjoy working with him and couldn’t imagine my business without his expertise.
