“Contracting Castle Builder to create my new website was a great decision. As an independent contract writer, I depend on my site to highlight and organize my published work for prospective employers, editors, and the general public. The site designed by Castle Builder accomplished that objective smartly. It flows nicely, it’s beautiful to look at, and it combines texts and images in ways that are easy to navigate and distinctive. There is nothing cookie-cutter about Castle Builder Design. Their professionals were sensitive to my wishes and my budget, and they have provided great technical support in the months since the site went live. I recommend them highly.”— Roger Atwood, author and journalist, RogerAtwood.com
“I have worked with Amélie at Castle Builder for over 10 years and have had a wonderful experience throughout. Our online presence has grown significantly; I believe Amélie’s guidance, patience and insight have been instrumental. Questions we have are answered quickly but thoughtfully. Updates are completed with lightning speed and accuracy. They are accessible to us in ways unmatched by other vendors. I trust Castle Builder to handle our needs promptly and professionally, they completely ‘get’ us.”— Karina Casines, Account Manager, ARCHAEOLOGY magazine
“Last week, I had a panic attack after my attempt to update my WordPress site appeared to bring it down. I was unable to log onto my site, and at times even visiting the page brought nothing but a blank screen and an error message. This happened to be on a day that my work got some important attention in the press—in other words, a day people would be learning about me for the first time and might be inclined to visit my site. So I flipped. I sent several panicked emails to Castle Builder and it was fixed in minutes. Crisis averted!
This was the second time I hired Castle Builder for troubleshooting. As a sole proprietor, I like to do as much of my own work on my site as possible. But sometimes it’s not worth it—the task that takes me hours can often be done in minutes by Castle Builder. In other words, it’s money very well spent.”— Sara Eckel, author, It's Not You: 27 (Wrong) Reasons You're Single
“Castle Builder Design has created two sites for me, and both times they have delivered exactly what I asked for and made the process simple. Anything I threw their way they handled effortlessly. Amélie is an expert when it comes to WordPress and customized forms that allowed me to easily maintain the sites. She even updated my sites proactively to ensure they stayed secure. I will definitely work with Castle Builder again.”— Kristin Vincent, KristinVincent.com

“Amélie Walker-Yung and Castle Builder Design completed a monumental and elegant overhaul of the National Book Critics Circle website and membership platform. It was an absolute joy to work with Amélie from the very beginning. She worked hard to understand our needs before she even provided us with an estimate, and provided us with design solutions for a complicated set of moving parts that had long plagued our members and visitors with confusion and frustration. She was receptive and adaptive to design notes and accommodating to new ideas as the wide-ranging project evolved. Our new website now allows us to put our best foot forward, and with a streamlined backend system for subscription management and membership profiles, the system finally works as designed, leaving us to focus our energy on what’s most important. We cannot thank Amélie enough, and give her the highest recommendation.”— David Varno, VP/Tech, National Book Critics Circle
“Great job, done in record time, good understanding of content and visuals.”— Sharon K. Yoerg, ShaMo Educational Consulting
“I’ve had the pleasure of working with Amélie of Castle Builder Design for a few years now. She definitely knows her ‘stuff’ and I’m so grateful for all the work and love she put into my website! I hope to continue to work with her for a long time for any of my business needs! I highly recommend her and her services!”— Avis Glenister, 30a Wedding Co.
“Working with Castle Builder Design is high quality, easy and super fast!
When I first started working with Amélie, I only had a vague idea for the way I wanted my website to look and function. I drafted a couple of designs and Amélie quickly turned them around into something that was BETTER than I could have imagined.
Within days she made an idea in my head reality! AND, even though I’m not techy at all, Amélie taught me how to easily make many updates and changes on the backend myself, which feels very empowering.
I highly recommend Amélie. She’s a total professional, has amazing designs, and is lovely to work with to boot!”— Daniella Rosales-Friedman, Love Coach Daniella
