Joe is first class when it comes to his web building, layout, design and incredible photography. Joe worked with my particular style that I had in mind and has created a website with beautiful imagery and the overall look is exactly what I had envisioned. I now have a professional and inviting website that’s user friendly for my customers. I can’t speak highly enough of his work and would recommend him to anyone!

I first approached Amanda and Joe to assist in bringing my Handmade Matters brand to life based on the beautiful work they create on The Tasmanian Tuxedo. I wanted something that was unique and would tell my story in the way they do through both the narrative and the images that result from their collaboration on Tas Tux. I had a broad picture of what I wanted but left the rest in their hands. They both work so intuitively and in doing so they captured exactly what I was trying to communicate to my clients. I couldn’t be happier with the brand and my website and my clients are always complimenting me on how authentic it is. Their brand work has also translated beautifully to social media and hard copy formats. I am booked months in advance thanks to their great work.

I had the absolute pleasure to work with Joe Chelkowski to produce a video for our business, Healthy Horizons. Joe’s attention to detail, ability to make people feel comfortable in front of the camera and his expertise in the production phase have left us with a creation way above anything I could have imagined. Pure Genius!
