“I’ve worked with various web designers over the years. Many were competent, but lacked a distinctive artistic sensibility. Others tried to bowl me over with “the latest internet design trends” or “the modern look” they were sure my company needed. In other words:  Their version of what I wanted. Larry Bohen offered a more organic approach. After a detailed, one on one conversation about my goals and preferences, he provided a clear, systematic procedure for developing my raw content and transforming it into an elegant, imaginative, and functional design. When it comes to professionalism, customer satisfaction, performance, and artistic sensibility, I’d rate Larry Bohen Web Solutions a solid eleven.”

"Larry has been wonderful to work with. When it comes to computer stuff I am lost and he has been very patient with me creating a beautiful site that I am able to have him update and add to at my own pace. Since it launched I have received what I feel is a lot of traffic and never had to advertise my last litter of Maremma LGD because I had buyers contacting me straight from the website. He responds to emails swiftly, makes changes quickly and has wonderful ideas on other ways to get my farm’s name out there."
