"Canton Becker's website design for originalthinking.us does more than promote a book; rather, it promotes a way of being in the world. To accomplish this required a high level of creativity and vision on his part, and also preparation and hard work. To begin with, he listened carefully to what I, the client, envisioned, but he didn't stop there. He then read the book that was to be promoted and proposed many creative ideas on his own for how the website could embody the message. His work is a rare combination of aesthetic and technical skill. The end result was a custom designed site that is beautiful, elegant, and user friendly to operate. I couldn't be happier."

"We wanted an elegant and easy to maintain site that showcased Jim Rabby's artwork. Canton listened intently and with purpose. He provided ideas and implemented them to assist with the development of our website and our business. We got everything we wanted and felt confident working with Canton knowing that he would handle it all in a competent professional manner. We think very highly of Canton and recommend him"

"I engaged Canton for a complete redesign of the website for Unity Woods Yoga. It's hard to know what to praise first. His expert technical knowledge of WordPress and his creative design advice made the site far more attractive and user-friendly than before. His skill in automating a connection to the studio's online registration system will save the staff many hours of work each month. I especially appreciate the value he consistently added above and beyond my expectations with extra tweaks and improvements that I didn't even know to ask for."

"The website of MMD France has been redesigned with the help of Canton Becker early 2010. Since then a declining sales trend has been reversed and our website enjoys a growing number of visitors and buyers. We have received spontaneous praise for our site, as being very clear, full of easy-to-find interesting information and with a beautiful design. The professional approach and advice of Canton - both in terms of marketing and sales, and of web design - has been instrumental to the success of our sales of software and training/coaching activities in our market. Thanks!"

"I've had the privilege of working with Canton on complex custom web applications for my largest client and also as a colleague on other projects where coordination between interface design and back end programming is essential. Hands down he's the best programmer I have worked with. Always helpful, on time and on budget, and invariably points out ways to improve user experience. I recommend him wholeheartedly and without reservation."

"Canton saved my site when I was in a sticky situation. A few weeks before I was going to change over my site to a new host/developer, my site was hacked. When I called various developers in town to try to clean up the malware and rebuild my site to what it looked like previously, I got a dismal picture. Canton was luckily an expert on cleaning up Wordpress hacks, and he got my site working again within days. He was professional, kind and answered all of my questions with patience. Working with Canton is a breathe a fresh air and I truly feel that I can trust him. I recommend his work wholeheartedly."

Canton really understood the feel and form I dreamed of for my website. Also his technical abilities are very satisfying to me. Beauty and function is what Canton has provided for my online project. I look forward to a long collaboration with Canton so Future Primitive can grow and prosper on the Internet. The Marion Institute who funds my work is also very pleased with Canton's expertise."

"I would not hesitate to recommend Canton for web design and development. He's been the one I've turned to for years when it came time to get sites built for my own business. Canton is sharp and asks thoughtful questions that others may ignore or not oven think to ask. He produces excellent quality work, combined with a desire to truly help create the best product possible. It has been a pleasure working with such a talented developer."

"I had the most wonderful experience working with Canton. He made designing my website fun and very easy. From our very first meeting, the entire process was quick, and understandable. During our work together, he taught me how to manage my website on my own which is so important for my small business.
Canton is such a great mix of many different qualities; he's very technical, a great designer, easy to talk with and a wonderful teacher of his craft. I highly recommend his expertise to anyone!"
