who I am & what I do
Hi! I am Jay Forde, CEO of JF Designs. I have been providing creative and technology solutions for my clients since 1991. For over 25 years I have seen trends and styles come and go. And that keeps things new and exciting for me too. Sadly, I have also seen customer service come and go as well.
Customer service is not a cliche with me. It is at the heart of my work method. I can’t read minds… yet. Although most of my clients think that I can. I simply listen to my clients, and then I try to exceed their expectations.
Should I be so lucky to have you as a new client, I can assure you, that you will feel just as lucky to be working with me.
For over 28 years… that’s like a hundred years in technology terms… I have been helping my clients with their design and technology needs. This is what I do, and yeah, I’m really good at it. Your time is valuable, and frankly, so is mine. I strive to far exceed client expectations. I partner with clients that are serious about their success. On every project, I provide consulting services, or creative energy, as I like to call it. I have great ideas, but, I always allow my amazing clients to be part of the creative process. Magic is inevitable.
Customer service is dead… long live customer service! It’s not right until it is. I listen. It’s that simple. I bring a broad range of design experience, technical knowledge, and a common sense approach to the table — and in a language, you can actually understand. Telephone, text, or email… when you contact me, I respond.
Your business needs to be #1 with your customers. I create comprehensive packages for you that encompass your print and online branding and business presentation. In simple terms, you do what you do well, and I will make sure that your customers know about it.
Logos, collateral packages, websites, Facebook business pages, photography, social media images and more.
If you need a creative way to engage your audience I have some great ideas to offer you.
In today’s competitive business market image is key. But even the smallest home-based business can compete with a strong professional image. I can develop a unique and creative design package that can help put you ahead of your competition.
My design services include brochures, direct mail campaigns, book jacket design, trade show backlit signs, banner design, CD and DVD package design, brand identity, collateral design packages and more.
Whether you need a web site built from the ground up, or just a “fresh new look”, I can make a creative difference that will get noticed. Working closely with you, I not only make your site look good, but make it effective and functional for your customers, partners, and employees.
I offer content management updates to your site as well. WordPress is our preferred content management system and the one I recommend to my clients. I provide WordPress template modifications, setup, installation, and content migration.
I bring over 28 years of broad range experience, technical knowledge, and a common sense approach to the table — and in a language, you can actually understand.
Sometimes it seems like customer service is a thing of the past… except when you work with JF Designs consulting. Your satisfaction is not just one priority with me… it is my ONLY priority. I can assist with professional advice on the following information:
- Branding and promotion strategy
- Internet hosting
- Web site architecture
- Design standards
I don’t try to impress my clients with all the latest industry jargon, I prefer to impress them with the results they need instead.
