"[Arq] knocked it out of the park with the first mockups, which was a relief. As a new business owner I have so much on my plate to do, and having a team that "gets it" (from design aesthetic to brand voice to development) alleviated a lot of stress + saved time. Launch day was another favorite. Switching the store from a draft to live and seeing the first order come in was a highlight, ... when I started looking, I was looking for a website developer, but got so much more!"

- Sam Hoff, Pottery with a purpose

After several false starts spanning a few years, lots of hard work, lessons learnt, tears, stress and frustration, we have launched our new website! We found the most phenomenal agency in Canada called Arq Design Studio and they not only launched our site on time, but a week early. ... we're delighted with the site and really happy with how it now reflects our branding so beautifully. A huge well done to the Arq team and founder Lea Gucciardi

- Melanie Lawson, Founder Bare Biology

"Let's talk about Lea and the entire Arq team... They True professionals, like the most organized of anyone I have ever seen or ever worked with... the entire process end to end was super seamless, so easy. Like I said like attention to detail, I absolutely loved it and I cannot WAIT to work with them again"

- Rachelle Saevil - Creative director saevil Row

"We received a beautifully designed and functioning website for a fair price and in a relatively short timeframe. This is the best solution for small businesses like ourselves that want to work with top professionals in a price they can afford. I really enjoyed your professionalism, expertise and design capabilities. It really felt like we are getting the best possible return on our investment."

- David, Founder Waka Coffee co.
