As an IT professional, out of the business for years, and did not want to put in the effort to design my own website, when I saw a website that Bright Clear Design created…I was hooked. It was the only company that I had seen that I appreciated their design. Personally, I prefer a clear, informative website…not a lot of mess. I want it clear, clean, and informative… Bright Clear Design was the one web designer that was my vision. Bright Clear Design has created 2 websites for me and I have been very happy with the design, the response to my changes, with the patience with my not being prompt with my getting back with them promptly because of my busyness of my business. Bastiaan and his team are amazing!! And if you want a clean… I mean  clean, and beautiful website…they are your team.


Tracy Drinkwater – North Freedom Repair

I had the opportunity to work with Bastiaan at Bright Clear Design on the North Freedom Repair business web page. His name was given me by referral. I had talked to Bastiaan about getting me a bid for putting together our web page. Out of all bids I went with Bastiaan for a good reason. First reason, like any business, I wanted a big bang for my buck. Second reason is the communication, Bastiaan always called or emailed back promptly, and when doing so he always had a positive attitude. I was never once made to feel I was annoying him or unconvincing him. He was always pleasant and excited to talk about whatever question I had. I feel that is one of his best qualities and a rarity when working with a web designer.

Finally during the process of designing the webpage, Bastiaan made me feel in control. There were some things I depended on him for his creativity but was more involved with others. He was open, honest, and welcomed any micro managing I did when it came to certain parts of the web page. I never once was made to feel I was being brushed off or unimportant. I could not have picked a better web page designer to help represent North Freedom Repair. Thank you Bastiaan for providing North Freedom Repair with excellent service, good pricing, and above all a discoverable web page, that I can keep adding to and changing. I really feel that North Freedom Repair got the better deal.

It has been a pleasure working with Bastiaan. I stepped in the middle of someone else’s project and he was extremely helpful and accommodating to the new direction. Our new website has had rave praises. Having the internal control to make some changes ourselves was exactly what we were looking for. Yet we still have the support needed for the technical stuff.

Very easy to work with. Very professional and gets the job done fast. Also extremely affordable for the amount and quality of work that he does.

Aaron Bauer – Forward Farm Lines

If you are looking for a website on budget and on time that is delivered as promised look no farther than Bright Clear Design. Our experience with Bastiaan was nothing but positive. Our website was made to fit our vision and we are happy to have the clean, professional, functional and attractive website that we have today. To be honest we were attracted to Bright Clear Design with their competitive pricing but soon realized we were happy with the work and service offered. Don’t have a URL? Don’t worry Bastiaan will take care of that too and help set up your email address to match your web address. Just Fantastic.

I want to express my impression; in how, Bright Clear Design, has helped my organization, in a great way. I was very pleased, with the web designer. They did their best to understand the theme, of our commission, and our objectives, of what we are trying to accomplish, to communicate, to who visits our website. When we receive feedback regarding our website that Bright Clear Design created, I receive positive, and they were impressed by the simplicity, and how it was well designed. Thank you, Bright Clear Design, I highly recommend your services to others.

Great to work with!


Machteld – Jongmans Adem- en Ontspannings Therapie

Begin 2017 heb ik Bastiaan gevraagd een website voor mij te ontwerpen. Hij vraagt je eerst een keuze te maken uit verschillende soorten websites. Hierdoor krijg je zelf al een goede indruk wat je zelf wel of niet wilt.  Ook het aanleveren van teksten en foto’s wordt hierdoor makkelijker. Zijn werkwijze is heel duidelijk
In een hele mooie eigen stijl maakt hij een duidelijke en mooie website. Met name de heldere indeling en het gebruik van de foto’s is erg goed . Het verfijnen van de website verloopt in goed tempo, waardoor je in een korte tijd een mooie website hebt. De samenwerking met Bastiaan verliep erg plezierig.

6 Short Steps Towards Your Brand New Website
  • 1. Inquire

    Through the phone, email, and an online inquiry I get to know you, what you do, and what you want to achieve with your online presence.

  • 2. Meet

    After the assessment we can meet by phone, Skype, or in person. We focus on your online marketing goals. The same or next day, I email a proposal with services, pricing, and specifications.

  • 3. Choose

    You can mark your choice(s) on the proposal, sign, and return it. It is our contract. Once I receive contract, first payment, and requirements, you can select 1 out of 3 example layouts to get started.

  • 4. Build

    I create your hosting account then install and configure all website software, features, and functions. I organize all contents. Then I create visually attractive pages, prominent calls for action, and user-friendly navigation.

  • 5. Review

    I publish the site on a temporary address for review. You can give feedback in your reply. I make the changes and test for website and mobile performance, responsiveness, and user experience.

  • 6. Publish

    I create and test your email account(s). Your website is ready. Take another look. After you sign off, I publish it on its permanent web address. You are live. Congratulations.
