Praise From Our Clients

District Maven was fantastic to work with. Understanding the vibe of Divine Style’s fashion styling business and clientele, she immediately went to work creating a dynamic website that is fashion savvy to look at drawing in my customer’s eyes. The responsive design is trendy while capturing business with the call’s to action. Their team was superb at finding the right features and plugins to make DivineStyle.co stand out. Her responsiveness to design changes made it very easy to work with her company. I highly recommend District Maven Marketing & Creative.

District Maven is without a doubt my go-to for the many needs we have in social, corporate, and philanthropic events. They have everything you’d want or expect in web design services: brilliantly creative, refreshingly straight forward and easy to work with, and mind-blowingly efficient. We trust them completely and recommend them wholeheartedly. You’d be silly not to hire them.

I connected with Leigh through recommendations in the hospitality industry. She was eager to help me and met with me to talk me through the process. She met with my team to walk through the development of the redesign, and explained in layman’s terms, terminology, technology and the importance of following the rules of SEO.

I felt comfortable with Leigh and I knew that she understood what I wanted to get out of the project. I was confident that she understood our goal, and she was with me every step of the way. She was driven to produce the best version of our vision. She reassured me that we could meet our goals, and she exceeded my expectations. I have never seen anyone work so quickly and efficiently. Working with Leigh on our website has been a collaborative experience and I would recommend her services to anyone.

Working with Leigh has been a dream. Her decisiveness, skill, opinion and the pace at which she accomplishes tasks has been an incredible asset in making my website happen far better than imagined. After being stalemated for over a year with another designer, Leigh grabbed the reigns and pushed ideas into action and action into results ending with a new website from concept to completion in under four months. Not only has the process been collaborative, responsive and enjoyable, her business acumen, professional guidance and support whenever needed helped build the trust necessary to complete such a personal project. Truly, thank you!
