“Studio Shah were wonderful partners in the process of creating Aviary’s website. Not only did they flawlessly execute on our vision for how our site should work, but they also made it look drop dead gorgeous to boot.

Studio Shah has that rare cross DNA understanding of how design and programming should work together that made it painless for our developers to wire up and fun for our users to experience.

Studio Shah was always on time with their delivery and had project organization down to a science, which is especially important for projects with distributed teams. We have never worked with another firm so good about communicating, delivering quality work and doing so on schedule.

A++++ would do business with again in a heartbeat.”

Avi Muchnick, CEO of Aviary

We helped Aviary with Information Architecture, User Experience, User Interface Design, and HTML, CSS, and JavaScript production for both their public website and community web application.

“At CloudFlare we had a very tricky user interface challenge: making a product that was extremely technically complex simple and easy to use. We found Studio Shah very early on and long before we had our own in-house design team.

From the beginning, Maudie and Sumul took the time to fully understand our product, not just our requirements document. Throughout the process they were both creative in their suggestions on shaping the interface and also flexible to meet our technical requirements. They helped us better flesh out our own vision for the product and also contributed great suggestions of their own.

They obsessed over creating pixel-perfect, extremely clean designs always driven by what would deliver the best experience for our users. They were professional and prompt, delivering what they had promised within the timeframe we outlined.

The HTML, CSS, and JavaScript they created for us has served as a foundation that we have been able to build on as our product has developed and our internal design team has grown.

At previous companies, I have worked with other design contractors and have not had the best experiences. Because of that, I was the skeptic on the CloudFlare team when we were considering hiring Studio Shah. Today at CloudFlare we have an interface that our users rave about. Studio Shah was a critical part of building that. I recommend them highly.”

“Studio Shah are great web designers, but it goes way beyond that. They understand the interaction between users, technology and our business requirements. They are able to take a rough concept or challenge that we bring to them, and deliver an elegant, thoughtful and very usable design.”
