From My Clients

“Before the re-launch, we had a website that was hard to navigate and out of date. Therefore, we were looking for a web designer who combined political positioning with design. I found Verena’s clear, friendly and affable way of communicating really pleasant. In the design process with the graphic designer and me, her flexibility and professionalism were very helpful. We finally have a great and appealing website that we all enjoy, thank you so much!”

“Verena was able to answer ALL questions I had about WordPress. And there was no problem (and I experienced numerous), be it technical, legal, or about design that she wasn’t able to help me resolve. Thanks to my new website, which I was able to create together with her in no time at all, I quickly started winning new clients. Thank you! ”

“Working with Verena was one of the best things that could have happened to us in our situation: We had no experience in translating a real life festival situation into an online festival, but Verena was able to see us through in an uncomplicated manner. With a calm, patient and absolutely accurate and concentrated way of working, she built us a website which we see with pride and great pleasure.”

"Before contacting Verena's Design Studio, I didn't have a website and didn’t really get on with it myself. I chose Verena's Design Studio because of their political orientation and community connection. I found the cooperation very helpful and am now very happy to have a new website and to get positive feedback for the website as well. I can gladly recommend Verena's Design Studio!"
