ABIA Awards

“Cannot give a higher recommendation to Jin And Co - it's a consensus shared by many of my peers.

I can't wait to see what he makes for us next.”

Hollie Ohs CAN

“I chose to go with Jin because I loved his online portfolio, and I am so glad I did. Jin was so easy to work with and was very patient with my endless questions. Working with a designer outside of my country was so much easier than I thought it would be, the time difference was not an issue at all. I love my site so much and would definitely recommend Jin.”

David Hunt

Christine Bell

“Jin was able to take my ‘keep it simple’ design brief and few ideas and create a beautiful, easy to navigate website to showcase my new debut novel. I’m delighted with it.

Bedlam Books Manuscript Assessment Service

“Our daggy old website could not cope with smartphones or digital commerce. We chose Jin because his designs are lively and attractive, and because he understands our clients - busy, creative people. Jin took charge of all the technical issues, which allowed us to focus on content. Our lovely new site is much easier to navigate, and the parts work together seamlessly.”

Donna M Venter (Red Cardinal Writing) USA

“If you are like me and don’t know anything about creating a website or what you need to do to maintain one then I would recommend Jin. I had some pretty unusual ideas about how I wanted my site to look. Jin totally got my vision and he found some of my favorite graphics for the site. I found zero issues in working with someone located in another country that started their work day at the same time that mine ended.”

Robert Freebody

“What I was fortunate to find in dealing with Jin & Co wasn't just a unique one-off design that met my brief, but an unwavering commitment from the whole support team to hone and finesse every page. No revision request (or navigation improvement) was ever ‘too much trouble’. Everything was about achieving the right end result.”

Helene Chung

Amanda Ortlepp

“I liked that Jin & Co. had done author websites before and therefore knew the type of information the site needed. Their folio examples showed a variety of great designs and were all very different. They were obviously designed to suit the site’s owner rather than all being designed in the same look and feel.”

Cate Stellar

“I found a reference to Jin’s website on the Australian Society of Authors website and after two previous encounters with website developers who were less than satisfactory, I heaved a sigh of relief. I knew I was in good hands.

“As a first time author and self-publisher, I knew I needed a website. The problem was, how best to build one?

Then, by sheer good fortune, a publishing consultant recommended Jin & Co, and my problem was solved.”

Steven Feldstein USA

“Despite the considerable time difference between Australia and the United States, I didn’t experience any difficulty in communication. If anything, the time zone difference worked to my advantage – I was able to review changes at the end of day, send them off to Jin, and have alterations turned around later in the evening.”
