Mike designed and managed our websites for two different rental properties that I was the Property Manager. In addition to these two websites he also designed and managed a website for a not-for-profit organization that I was involved with as President. Mike was very detail oriented when it came to his work. The websites would look good to me but he always had a way of making them look even better and more effective. I highly recommend Mike for any project.

Thanks Mike, you're awesome!

Core Builders / LaRovere Construction Inc.

There is one thing I can say about it. I love it! I am sure the client will too.

Owner of an Ottawa Based Creative

Mike is a very easy person to deal with. He is very knowledgeable and excellent at explaining complex details regarding website design, trends and implementation. His direct contact approach is very client focused so you don't have to go through several layers of personnel to get quick accurate answers to your questions. I can't recommend both his skill level, knowledge and customer service high enough. A++

Michael Wilson, Owner, PC Audio

I highly recommend Mr. Mike Cygalski without reservation. Mr. Cygalski is easy to work with, is very creative, offers various packages (so there is something for every budget) and completed my website very quickly. Mr. Cygalski is also very accessible.
