I have worked with Vertical Motion on a couple of projects, the most recent being the redesign of MATRRIX’s website. Their patience, creativity, and flexibility helped guide our team through the process while listening to our needs and providing creative solutions to challenges. A straightforward and open communication style kept our team on track and ensured we clearly understood design decisions. We will definitely use Vertical Motion’s creative services again!
The whole team at Vertical Motion is crazy talented and able to work magic! They just launched our new website in what has to be record time! Despite a few external hiccups, they were creative in overcoming obstacles, updating our look and launching an extremely professional and easy to use e-commerce website for us. Calm under pressure, patient with client queries and creative in so many ways, they are true partners! I would highly recommend them to ANYONE!
Vertical Motion has made a huge impact on the creative design of our branding materials. Their professionalism, prompt turn around on projects and keen ‘designer eye’ has meant we now have a reliable go to designer for our professional corporate requirements.
Vertical Motion is top-notch when it comes to creative design, website development, and brand management. With a perfect balance of reliability, sharp ideas, and fast turnaround, I always trust Vertical Motion to deliver great work (often with very little guidance). Their patience and professionalism shines through in all of their projects.
Vertical Motion are dedicated consultants with a genuine determination to help companies better perform online. They deliver on their word and are a pleasure to work with.
From the first moment I contacted Vertical Motion to inquire about developing an iPhone app for the Calgary Humane Society they were amazing to work with. The professionalism shown as we worked through the process of developing the app was great. I would easily recommend the team at Vertical Motion.
Jason and his team at Vertical Motion are amazingly talented individuals. Vertical Motion can do it all, from concept to completion whether it’s a website, copy writing, web app, mobile app or straight-up business concept advice. They are a great one-stop web shop!
We were consistently impressed by Vertical Motion’s ability to independently follow through on their plans on time and on budget. They have integrity and do what they say they’re going to do. I’m often traveling and I felt comfortable knowing that progress was being made without having to micromanage the development.
We enjoyed working with Vertical Motion for our app development and appreciated their strong technical knowledge and responsiveness to our requests; it was a very smooth process and we would be happy to work with Vertical Motion again.
Vertical Motion did a stellar job. Everything from communications to managing our expectations to the delivery of the product was impressive. They exceeded all expectations!
The Alberta Provincial Rural Crime Watch Association is very pleased with the help we received from Vertical Motion to build our app. It populates the phone number of the RCMP detachment closest to you, based on your GPS location, anywhere in Alberta. Vertical Motion helped us develop a plan that met our requirements in a cost effective way, they stayed on budget, met their timelines, and the rollout was seamless. We are looking forward to Phase two!
