Kristi has now edited and prepared proofs for several issues of AABFJ (Australasian Accounting Business and Finance Journal). Kristi’s academic background and experience make her easy to work with from an academic journal’s point of view because she understands the conventions of academic publishing and writing. Kristi has very good attention to detail and is always prompt and professional in her work which makes working with her a very pleasant experience.

Kristi Prohm is a multi-talented and creative person who excels at everything she does: whether it be producing the fantastic alpaca auction brochure she did for me (including the photography); or providing me with patient and unending IT assistance at any time of the day or night; or designing and launching an outstanding website to showcase my top quality alpacas; or creating a wonderful internet-based program to assist all alpaca breeders. Kristi is totally professional in every way, and is extremely easy to work with.

Kristi from Broad Ribbon Designs did my first website 20 years ago. Over the years she has supported me cheerfully when I experienced difficulties due to my limited knowledge of computer based systems and has always been prompt with solutions and advice. Naturally when a new website with a more sophisticated shopping cart was needed I turned to Kristi and I am more than happy with the result. I am confident that with her advice and guidance I will learn to manage this new site as I did the previous one.

It is not often that I feel compelled to write to a supplier and thank them for providing such excellent service but I am so impressed with our new website, I felt I had to thank you for doing such an excellent job.
The site was created in record time and has been a significant part of the rapid growth of our business. I have received numerous compliments regarding both the design and functionality of the site, perhaps none as important as the accolade from our USA principals.
However what really prompted me to write to you was the comment made by our Insurance Broker. He was concerned that it may be impossible for such a new company to obtain Product Liability Insurance for imports from the USA, so it came as a welcome surprise when he obtained the cover and at a very good premium.
He told me that the Underwriters thoroughly checked all of our products on our website and concluded that “any company that had such a professional website would not be importing inferior quality products”!
With that development alone, our website has already paid for itself.
As an importer and wholesaler, we have no ‘physical’ presence such as a shopfront that acts as the frontline introduction for our customers. This makes the website even more important as it is the first point of contact for our retailers looking for product.
So thank you for doing such a good job and getting it right first time—it was money well spent and I would have no hesitation in recommending your services to anyone looking to create a first impression.

I extend to Broad Ribbon my sincere thanks on materialising and encapsulating my vision by developing and creating a superb website; they produced the HeelSavvy online store that looks better than I could have imagined!
I am more than impressed by the professional service, commitment and willingness to assist and make changes whenever it was required. Broad Ribbon also showed great patience during the creation and transition from my previous e-commerce service provider. The ease of access and ability to control the information both at an operational and customer level is extremely essential for the HeelSavvy online store and Broad Ribbon delivered. The site is of high quality at a very competitive cost.
Once again, thanks to Broad Ribbon for all the patience and professional work. I look forward to working with them in the future and I have no hesitation in recommending them for website design and development—a fabulous result—10/10!

I was given the Broad Ribbon Designs site by word of mouth after being let down by many others previously, so I had some hesitance. I was concerned I would have difficulty understanding the whole ‘website’ concept due to my limited computer skills and that the end product would not be what I actually wanted.
The worry was all for nothing. Kristi is nothing short of amazing. True professionalism but delightfully friendly which made for an easy working relationship. She had a wonderful creative insight into what I was asking and nothing was too much trouble. Patience is definitely one of her virtues as she walked me through everything I needed to know step by step and continues to provide all the support I need. She gave advice when I asked but was never pushy.
Kristi’s email replies were always prompt, clear and concise and she was so encouraging when something appeared too daunting. On top of the excellent service her pricing was the best of any quotes I received.
I would and will whole heartedly recommend Broad Ribbon Designs to anyone who is looking to build a web-based business because of Kristi’s superior skills, outstanding business ethics and exceptional personal qualities. Thank you Kristi, for everything you have done for our business. We look forward to many more years of profitable and satisfying association.

It is my pleasure to recommend the services of Kristi Prohm of Blue Ribbon Designs. I engaged Kristi to design my website. Kristi has done an amazing job on my website thinking of things that I would not have thought of.
From designing my logo, setting up a new email address and lay out of the website is a testament to Kristi’s attention to detail and concern for quality.
Kristi has been easy to work with, and always willing to take the time to respond to questions.
I’m happy to recommend the services of Kristi.

I know I have told you before but the website and your commitment to us is truly wonderful. I just accessed the site via my mobile [...] and it is really so magical. Thanks so much again.
— Karen Williams
Its amazing! I am so impressed, you have done an upstanding job.

Kristi has been an absolute godsend. She helped me after two dodgy website designers left me high and dry. She’s always had time to listen to my ideas and gives plenty of suggestions if I can’t come up with something. Kristi’s work is second to none and done in a timely manner. Her work is fabulous. I am always getting compliments on my website. Due to the high quality, when we dispersed our herd, the website was responsible for the majority of sales. We recommend Kristi 1000%. Thanks Kristi!

Thank you Kristi, Broad Ribbon Designs put together my website www.jennjoleyalpacas.com.au and I have to say not only was Kristi an absolute pleasure to work with but my website is great!! It is so easy to navigate which is very important to keep people focused on the website. It is also so very easy for me to update, while still having an option for Kristi to update if I am unable to due to time demands...nothing was a problem for Kristi, her advice, honesty, easy nature and professional end product make it easy for me to highly recommend Broad Ribbon Designs.
— Sharon Dawson
Thank you so much for the exceptional service you provided for us over many years, in designing and hosting our website and email. You have a rare combination of the design skills to produce a visually eye-catching website and the technical expertise to support it and explain things in non-technical language. Efficiency is also one of your trademarks — any email or request has always received a virtually immediate response, which has been very much appreciated. We would thoroughly recommend Broad Ribbon to anyone.
