Hi Andrea! I purchased your Shabby Chic template this week and I just wanted to tell you how happy I am with it! I love the outcome on my site and wanted to thank you for doing the video tutorials!

All of the That’s Kinda Cool! wordpress themes are clean, simple and include easy navigation. I had a hard time picking which one to use for my site! I did have a couple of issues getting everything to work how I wanted (I’m not a wordpress guru) but the tutorials helped a ton. The customer service is top notch too!

Thanks again for all of your help!

Andrea’s designs speak for themselves…so I will speak on her excellent customer service and timeline. She customized an already custom design for me..and I was up and running within one week. And, it would have been less if it were not for my indecisiveness.

She is a rock star with rock star designs!

Andrea was amazing to work with. I can not say enough good things! She held my hand and explained out everything. It went from being a frustrating experience that I was doing on my own to an amazing one and done in no time at all. She took my little idea for a blog and made it into something I would never have dreamed of. I love my new site!!

I wanted to give my website and blog a fresh new look and when I came across Andrea’s website (That’s Kinda Cool) and viewed her portfolio I knew that she would be able to create something great for me….and she did just that πŸ™‚

I love the new look of my website/blog and have received many compliments and great feedback from so many people. I was looking for something clean, fresh and modern and she delivered. She was amazing to work with and I would recommend her to anyone.

Thank you so much Andrea!!

Wow, I am so impressed with Andrea that it’s hard to pinpoint all the wonderful things about her to write a review! I knew exactly where to go when I finally decided to dump my flash website. From the get-go, Andrea was prompt in returning emails, extremely professional and kind. She was even so helpful to give me her professional opinion on how I should do a couple of things. That was invaluable as I tend to have a hard time making decisions. πŸ˜‰

She made everything on my end SO easy! Her system is so simple to use. I loved being able to look at her online checklist and see exactly where we were in the process. All I had to do was supply her with the information she needed. Paying her to do the hard work on my new site was worth it a million times over.

I love that Andrea tweaked the design on the template I chose just enough to make it look unique. I have had so many compliments on my site since it went live, especially from clients. My SEO has shot up too since switching to HTML. I am nothing short of thrilled with Andrea, her common sense, design skills, technical knowledge and her personality. I know exactly where I’m going the next time I want to revamp my site. πŸ™‚

I cannot say enough about Andrea and her ProPhoto blog template, Anna Leigh….not to mention her amazing customer service. I have purchased four different blog themes (yep, I’m a little picky) and I finally LOVE my photography blog!

Andrea’s single Photoshop file for the blog theme was new to me, but I have to say that I am sold! She has simplified the process to customizing the ProPhoto blog theme and saved me countless hours of trying to figure it all out on my own. This blog theme was, by far, the quickest customization I have done.

If all that isn’t enough to convince you…than add to it a superior level of customer service than anything else you’ll find out there. Emails were responded to within minutes, and solutions were perfect and timely! She even contacted ProPhoto for me and had a minor issue fixed almost immediately.
I couldn’t be more pleased with the overall experience I have had with Andrea.

Thank you Andrea for all your help and your amazing designs!

Andrea Rubash has been a godsend for me. She designed a logo for me that was just perfect for me – and updated my blog to match! Not only did she do an amazing design job for me….but she also has extensive technical knowledge when it comes to dealing with things like blogs and websites etc.

She possesses a unique quality in that she seems to almost know what you need or want before you even realize it. I know I had an incredibly positive experience and since then I’ve seen her give several other people in the photography field the same great experience.

I can’t say I’m not feeling a little burned….I thought what we had was special, Andrea….a unique bond where you did special logo design for me that was so intuitive and special….turns out you are doing that for everyone. Look -although I’m quite upset by this (I want you all to myself) I’d rather share you with the photo community at large than cut you out of my life. Life is cruel like that sometimes.

When I opened the finished blogsite from Andrea this morning I literally balled. Not just tears in my eyes but gushing sobs of joy. As a creative professional I understand that it is that one in a thousand person who can actually get your vision. Andrea is that person who can draw out what is in your heart and produce it!!!!!!!!!

I will tell you with every part of my being that I am soooooooo happy..
That’s Kinda Cool is by far the best decision I have made for my business in 15 years!!!!!!!!

Starting off in unchartered territory, Wordpress and Prophoto themes were somewhat daunting to me when I first considered a update to our website. Andrea was instrumental in patiently explaining the steps necessary to create our vision, even when my descriptions of the design wish list were vague at best.

Not only was she always timely in her communication by email and available for long distance calls, she helped articulate our designs in a beautiful and elegant layout and created some coordinating graphic elements to tie in with our branding. It fits our style perfectly and I’m amazed how easy the process was from start to finish.

We have had countless compliments in the months following our relaunch from everyone who visits our website! Thanks for everything, including the terrific follow up assistance when we needed a minor change to the splash page πŸ™‚

Most gratefully,

I revamped and reworked my site and blog and had NO idea how to code it or even load Wordpress. Working with Andrea was probably the best decision I could have made. Not only is she super nice but so knowledgeable and fast. I swear I would write an email and a few minutes later she’d have an answer.

Photobiz is a little tricky and she knew the ins and outs and really helped walk me through everything and helped me learn quite a bit. I was a little freaked out during the process but Andrea kept me calm and really helped me change some of the design aspects and made the site/blog look even better.

I cannot thank her or recommend her enough. Andrea, from the bottom of my heart THANK YOU for making this go extra smooth and putting a huge smile on my face.

Working with Andrea was a great experience. She is a talented programmer, and was able to completely customize my blog. Andrea and I worked using Skype and a video conference software, so she could teach me how to do some of the simple site maintenance myself.

She listened to my design ideas and came up with the perfect logo design. She helped me secure a domain name, migrate my old blog over to my new domain, pointed my old address to the new address, and completely customized the appearance of my Pro Photo Blog to suit my new Logo and Watermark. She is fast and professional. I would highly recommend her services.

Working with Andrea was so easy and she was incredibly patient with my indecision. I love the final result and feel that it reflects me well – I recommend her to anyone.
Stacie Turner
Andrea not only was a pleasure to work with, she has the creative eye and artistic talent to design my logo that TOTALLY represented me. Finding a logo/website designer that has not only the knowledge to do it right, but make it beautiful is hard! She was so fast to respond to all my emails and very kind.

She also made my blog for me and made it so easy for me to update it. Thanks to Andrea I am on page 1 on google for searches for photographers in my state, and I could never thank her enough! Thank you SO much!

Jen Priester
Andrea is great! Not only is she a talented designer, but also is very good at figuring out your needs and tastes. She is awesome to work with, very patient and able to steer you in the right direction. She totally β€œgot” what I was looking for, and I just love my new branding.

I have gotten SO many positive comments from clients and potential clients about how beautiful my website is, and it reinforces how important it is to work with the right designer. I highly recommend Andrea’s services.

Inna Nusinzon
I was so excited to find Andrea’s design templates! There were so many fun and beautiful ones to choose from and I found a perfect fit. I was hesitant to try customization on my own, but her video tutorials are amazing and so helpful. When I did have a question or needed extra help, Andrea was prompt to reply and very patient answering my questions thoroughly. When I’m ready for another change, I’ll be coming back! πŸ™‚

Andrea’s customer service is exceptional. Even though we are continents apart she responded within minutes and answered all of my questions in a such a patient manner. I was a little daunted at first with Wordpress & Prophoto but she quickly put my mind at ease and I am absolutely thrilled with the end result. She is one talented lady and I would highly recommend her to anyone. Thanks again Andrea.

Hello. I just purchased your prophotoblog template and I just wanted to say how happy I am that I bought your design. I love all the time you put into the videos and the psd files are great. Thank you so much for doing such a wonderful job on the design. Sometimes I buy things and then have been dissappointed, but your design is awesome and so easy to work with. Thank you so much! Warmly, Tara
Thank you Andrea – you made it so easy for me to have EXACTLY the blogsite I wanted, in such a short space of time and with so little effort on my part. You are amazing to work with, patient, kind and thorough. Part of me wants to tell everyone to use you for their customisations and part of me wants to hide you in my closet and keep you all for myself!
***** Highly Recommended!

Born in Chicago and raised in Hawaii, I am defined by the unique experiences of my unconventional upbringing. Growing up surrounded by stunning landscapes and a vast ocean fueled my creativity and shaped my outlook on life. Immersed in a world where I observed cultures and traditions that were not my own, I learned to appreciate the richness of diversity and the value of embracing different perspectives. This exposure to different ways of thinking and living shaped me into a curious and open-minded lifelong learner, always eager to embrace new challenges and seek out solutions.

Growing up in Hawaii exposed me to a community of adventurous people who were drawn to the island's untamed spirit. As a child, I couldn't fully grasp the impact they were making on my life. Looking back, I feel honored to have spent my formative years in the company of such remarkable individuals. Surrounded by people who embodied the spirit of exploration and intellectual curiosity, I developed an openness to change, an understanding of the importance of empathy, and an appreciation for the value of human connection.
