"Brian worked to design a website completely to our liking. We had many requests and complex registration systems and he took care of it all for us. What I liked most about my experience with Brian was that he never left us high and dry. Even after the job was completed, Brian remained in touch, helping us along the way with any issues that needed attention. Superb work and professionalism all around."

Testimonial

“During the last year, the Craft Council of Newfoundland and Labrador has been benefiting from the advice of Brian Fowlow of Navigate Concepts. His overall professionalism illustrates his exceptional talents in many areas and he is a real pleasure to work with. He has facilitated the tricky navigation of our many issues around our web presence and offered helpful suggestions that we have been following through on. His approach to working with non-profits is refreshing which highlights his knowledge of many sectors including craft.”
