All in all, Rakesh is a rock star and any organization would be lucky to have him!

    Rakesh has been a profound talent here at Argaam. He not only has the eye of some of the best art designs in the Web and mobile business but also has the ability to embed that vision on a technical level creating smart designs for developers.

  • Stacy Roger

    Chief Operating Officer at Ebitinfosys

    Rakesh helped us transform a Photoshop design to a functional and responsive web page, and integrated it with WordPress. He was very responsive and his turn around time was exceptional, in just a few days. When it came to working through some tweaks, Rakesh went the extra mile to give us the functionality we needed and worked through the weekend so we could meet our go-live date. I highly recommend Rakesh services. You won’t be disappointed.

  • Marwan Oklah

    Marketing Manager at Moxit

    “As an ecommerce website pressure was always extremely high. Often times we needed to outsource our designing work. In our uniqueness, we needed speed of delivery but at the same time someone who would understand our brand positioning and deliver designs accordingly. Rakesh was the only one I met in 2 years who lived up to our high criteria and his promise of delivery. Always. Never a mis-commitment, a brken promise or low quality work. Thumbs up!”
