When I contacted Mark McKinney, founder of Four Story Designs, Mark stopped - looked - and listened. My first reaction was, this guy really cares and he will make a difference. I was on the money. He does and he did!
I approached Mark and challenged him. I had a functional website which was tired, technologically challenged and aging. After a short 3 month research and development project, look at me now! www.mannystone.com
Thanks to Alexander Stone - my project coordinator, for stimulating Mark and helping to mold our online personality. Alexander did a great job suggesting aspects of other sites that Mark was able to integrate into ours.
Mark listened to our concerns. With a soft sell approach and the willingness to allow me (us) to express myself, Mark asked important questions which evoked creative ideas. A cost estimate and time line was provided which was fair and acceptable. Mark was a great editor who molded our content and presented it with our best foot forward. He encouraged us to write the story and express our business strengths. Using state of the art technology and terrific organizational skills, Mark embellished our past performances, tied in our references, created a great slide show as he presented our trade show exhibit service business as a user friendly website. Search engines have responded favorably to our site since Mark has brought new life, a new look and keywords into it. Manny Stone Decorators has had many compliments from existing and new clients, Show Management representatives and even our competitors.
I intend to retain Mark on an on going basis to upgrade, update and sustain our work in progress. Contracting with Four Story Design was a value based decision which has produced a giant step forward in the evolution of Manny Stone Decorators.
Thank you Mark McKinney.
President, Manny Stone Decorators
Four Story Design created a site and logo for us from scratch, guiding us toward what we wanted with patience, perspective and good humor — then constructed the site with aplomb. I recommend them with great enthusiasm. Four Story Design is great to work with and does great work!

I had a wonderful experience working with Mark McKinney at Four Story Design! I found him to be professional, courteous and creative. He met deadlines with efficiency and answered my questions with patience. For my books he designed a beautiful web site with which I am very happy. As an artist he understands the importance of visual appeal; as a web designer he is knowledgeable about technical issues. I think the quality of his work speaks for itself.
