I really loved how Jin went the extra mile to incorporate a sliding/transitioning color scheme while you scrolled through the site. It showed me that he put a lot of thought and care into my website and familiarized himself with the source material he was designing for.

I needed a book/author website that had a unique visual appeal to match my book. I didn’t want to go with the cookie-cutter website templates because I wanted something that would truly stand out.

Jin’s portfolio of author websites really caught my eye. Not only did he know how to build a sleek-looking point-of-sales website, but he had a very rich variety in the design aesthetic that he chose for each author. Each website he designed really matched the author & book quite well

Jin was an absolute pleasure to work with and didn’t need any hand-holding. His technical expertise, married with some sublime creative intuition, took a lot of unwanted work off my plate. Not only did he deliver on what I had requested creatively, but he also came up with some really novel ideas that weren’t even on my radar. Whenever I needed technical support, he was very quick to respond to and resolve any issue.

Due to my fulfilment warehouse having some very specific point of sales parameters, I had to lean on Jin to communicate directly with their tech team to get our shipping rates populating correctly through the site. He went above and beyond to make sure everything on his end was working properly and then walked the tech team through issues on their end that were not his responsibility to resolve.**

How you found working with a designer outside of the US. What would you say to other writers concerned about the time difference and distance?

I work with teams around the world in various time zones on various film & commercial projects. That being said, my working relationship with Jin was one of the least difficult I’ve faced with such a significant time difference.

I really loved how Jin went the extra mile to incorporate a sliding/transitioning color scheme while you scrolled through the site. It showed me that he put a lot of thought and care into my website and familiarized himself with the source material he was designing for.

Choosing Jin to build my new website has been one of my best decisions ever. He has sorted my widely varying, forty-plus books into a beautiful, highly individual and cleanly functioning site, and continues to advise on and support all aspects of the site, including blog and newsletters. His patience is as extraordinary as his skill!

Go with Jin, full stop. It is well worth the money. A website is an investment in the business side of your writing and Jin is an expert in his field. Can not recommend highly enough.

My website, which I have had for 2 years, originally through Jin as well, needed to be refreshed and updated as I have another book, Nancy Business, coming out in June 2021. I first got my website before my debut, The Nancys, was published and since then I have learned a lot about how I use the website and what areas I wanted to focus on for the refresh.

I chose to stay with Jin as over the years I have worked with him he has always helped me, he is very good at what he does and it always feels like he understands and is on your side. He is excellent.

What’s he like to work with? Responsive, collaborative, patient, highly skilled, excellent designer, always works within the time-period he tells you. Highly recommend.

Jin is excellent to work with, very fast, great eye for design and was able to interpret what I had in my in head to the webpage in such a painless way.

Jin helped me realise what it was I had in my head – to the finished website. I wanted something that appeared simple and easy to navigate for the user but stylish and high performing as well. I wanted to retain the look and feel of my original website as well. Jin led me by the hand and at the end of our one-on-one had a solution for me which I was thrilled with.

Go with Jin, full stop. It is well worth the money. A website is an investment in the business side of your writing and Jin is an expert in his field. Can not recommend highly enough.

I love the new design, I find it so easy to navigate, yet it has all the old information from the old site. I also love how the new website works on mobile devices

“Jin made the whole process of creating my cross-platform responsive website so easy for me! He went out of his way to create the web site I wanted. I’m very happy with the result.”

“I was pleased with the overall result and appreciated their ongoing efforts in finding solutions even once the website was deployed and the accounts settled. This indicated that the team weren’t solely focused on getting the job done, but genuinely cared about creating a positive experience for their client.”

I am a children’s book writer and illustrator and I love the website Jin Wang has designed for me.

It reflects my personality and the nature of my writing, looks professional and is simple to navigate around. I’m not tech savvy but with Jin’s design I can make changes to the information on my website myself which I think is a real bonus.

Jin is a talented designer who is also courteous and highly professional

My old website was a mess!

Not only was it outdated and hard to navigate, but it was also aesthetically unpleasing with text and images all over the place. I was long overdue for a new, clean, informative and enjoyable place for visitors.

Jin’s experience in working with authors and illustrators is the best there is.

I first met Jin when he helped me move my first website, created many years ago, to a self-managed entity. He mentioned then that it needed a revamp, but I kept putting it off and patching up my old one with sticky tape. Jin was aware of my body of work and the amount of content involved in creating a new website so we were both realistic what was required and the timeframe.

The efficiency and speed to communicate back and forth on a project are of utmost importance to me. Jin is easy to reach and able to explain and solve any query.

What’s it Jin like to work with? Practicality and Patience. No matter what ‘silly’ question, I throw Jin’s way, he explains it to me, step by step, with grace in layman’s terms. Jin is always there when I forget how to manoeuvre in WordPress.

My advice for other writers considering a new author website? Have an idea of all the possible demographics you hope will visit your site. It will help organise copy, photos, reviews, testimonials, and links.

I wanted a place for children, parents, teachers, librarians, art lovers, curiosity seekers and other creators to gain knowledge about my work. Easy to find where to download activities, watch videos about my process, and my presentations for schools, libraries and festivals.

What’s cool about creating a new Jin and Co website, is the satisfaction in seeing it go live, shiny and new, for all the world to explore.

I was aware of the importance of having a ‘presence’ online, even as a pre-published writer, so I quickly threw together a website. I wanted a site that really represented me and my writing and I found it difficult to create my vision on my own.

When I sold my first book I knew I wanted to ‘invest’ my advance into creating a website. I searched online for website designers who specialised in authors and also checked out the sites of other children’s book writers. Jin’s site really stood out to me—his designs are fresh and modern, exactly what I wanted for my own site.

Jin makes the whole process very straightforward. He doesn’t overwhelm with information, which I appreciated, and he guided me through everything step by step. Jin listened to my vision for the site and took all my thoughts on board.

There can be a temptation, with so much information available for free online, to try and create a site on your own. However, the hours of research and fiddling it takes is time taken away from creating. Working with Jin made the process simple and the end product was so much more than I could have achieved on my own.

I didn’t find the time difference between the U.S. and Australia to be a problem. Jin responds promptly to emails and has experience working with authors all over the world.

I would definitely recommend Jin’s services to other writers. I know for a fact that literary agents and publishers look at author’s websites when they are considering their work. Why not make the best impression you can with a memorable and professional website.

The only area that I found a bit confusing was at the beginning of the process with regards to choosing a package. It helped to know that additional elements can be added as needed e.g. I didn’t start off with a newsletter but decided to add that on at the end.

When I saw the final website design for the first time I was thrilled! Jin really went out of his way to include all the design elements I had hoped for. The design has given me a starting block for my marketing campaign and a focus for my online presence.

My website was 10 years old and needed updating to coincide with the release of a new series of books. As well as needing a refreshed looking site, I needed a contemporary site that was responsive to smart phones, tablets etc. I have used Jin previously and was impressed by his clear communication and reliability. I was also impressed by the array of one-off templates Jin has on offer—I find it hard to conceptualise how a site might look and these templates made it so much easier to decide on a style and sitemap (with no surprises as to what the final product will look like). Jin always responds to queries in a timely manner and is great at explaining how a site will operate. The thing I appreciated the most was the way Jin worked with me to create a site that operates beautifully now but is also flexible for me to grow it without needing to pay for any future modifications or designs. For any authors out there considering getting a website, I highly recommend investing in yourself and working with Jin.

Lian Tanner

As a writer of children’s fantasy, I knew I wanted something different in a website.

Jin’s previous work made me suspect that he could offer this, and his preproduction questionnaire clarified my thoughts. Once this was done, the whole process was remarkably simple from my point of view.

Jin came back to me with a clear budget (adjusted to my finances) and, within a very short time, a design that struck just the right note. He responded quickly to my suggestions for changes, made alternative suggestions when one or two of mine didn’t work, fixed any problems promptly and was a pleasure to deal with.

Plus I’m immensely happy with what he created.

So if you’re looking for a website designer with imagination and flair, someone who can step outside the usual run-of-the-mill designs and create a site that is at once beautiful, intriguing and clear, then I would highly recommend Jin Wang.”

Lian’s website was redesigned in November of 2018. Here’s her updated testimonial:

“This is the second website Jin Wang has designed for me, and once again he was brilliant to work with, responsive to my ideas and requests, and endlessly patient with my changes of mind. Plus I love the final design and the way the website is so easy to update. I recommend Jin unreservedly.

Corinne Fenton

The first thing I would like to say about Jin & Co. is that from the beginning I felt I was dealing with an organisation with high standards of professionalism.

The Pre-Production Questionnaire was fantastic as it highlighted to me what sort of site design appealed, what I needed it to achieve and who was my audience.

I was not in a particular hurry with having my site up and running, rather I felt I needed to take time and be certain I was making the right decisions with both design and the sort of information my site needed to contain.

Jin & Co. were patient and allowed me to take my time without pressure.

I would recommend Jin & Co. highly to anyone looking for efficiency, reliability and professionalism and I’ve had some wonderful compliments from friends, writers, illustrators and people across the publishing industry about my fresh and appealing, user-friendly and stylish-looking site. It’s exactly what I wanted.

Recently I engaged Jin & Co. to redesign my existing website www.sandyfussell.com.

I had no idea mobile was such a significant access point. Based on Jin’s advice, I decided to include a mobile-update. I was rewarded with positive feedback from visitors accessing my site from their phones and iPads.

When Google announced they were restructuring their search algorithm to give preference to mobile friendly sites, I wasn’t worried.

Jin’s excellent reputation amongst Australian authors is well established, so when I decided I wanted a professional website he was my first choice.

Jin helped me to explore and clarify my needs before embarking on the project. Given that I write books for children and Young Adults, I passed him a challenge to create a website that catered for both groups.

He came through with flying colours. I am delighted by his innovations and know that my readers will be too.

“My old website was nearly ten years old and it looked tired, dated and messy. Jin’s redesign is absolutely gorgeous, warm and welcoming, easy to navigate and has a strong author branding so I’m so thrilled with it.”

The challenge for Jin with my website was that my published books don’t have a cohesive look or category. I needed a website that suited my Junior Fiction as much as my YA Fiction.

It became clear to me that Jin spends time researching each client when he sent me a small list of designs to consider. While they all appealed, one stood out to me as being just the right balance of colour, playfulness and simplicity. Jin knew that each of my books would look good against the background of the ‘Mila’ design.

From then on, Jin was able to organise the existing content from my old website and transform it into two very professional-looking websites.

emilygalebooks.com & theothersideofsummer.com

Not only that, but he did it incredibly quickly for me, knowing that I had a deadline of my own with a new book coming out.

Jin is highly professional, easy-going and conscientious and I’d recommend working with him if – like me – you have a vague idea of what you want but aren’t quite sure how to get there.
