    Thanks Niall, glad you liked it!

    Exactly Niall! It is never easy to get a simple website. That’s where the professionals become relevant. Like in any other field, in designing also, it is best to leave the work to professionals to get the best results.

    Tom, I couldn’t agree more about the power of video. I was recently onto indiegogo, complaining about the order of their videos for the Solar Roadways campaign. The second video, ‘Solar Freakin Roadways’ communicates the message best, yet people may never scroll down. https://www.indiegogo.com/projects/solar-roadways.

    I am also impressed that you have already learned that people invest in people. Best of luck with all your projects.
