I am more than satisfied with our website. Four Winds Agency is extremely responsive to all our needs by providing creative solutions and ideas for best ways to market our organization and completes everything in a timely manner – even in those “quick-turnaround” times. I highly recommend Four Winds for their talents and skills for web design but also because of their integrity, honesty and concern for others in our community and the world. They are a blessing to us and all who come in contact with them.Kathy |

Four Winds Agency is amazing. I’ve had the pleasure of working with both Richard and Greg on several design projects including a digital and print magazine. Both designers are open to suggestions and corrections, and they tailor everything to suit your individual themes and tastes. Both are quick to respond (even when the deadline is right around the corner), and the finished project is always what you want and more. Will always recommend Four Winds and its designers for any project!Keith L. Moore, M.A. |
You have done a phenomenal job and been most patient and accommodating with us. We are confident our website will be a huge benefit to our business, and we are most grateful to you for your amazing work.Cindy |
We recently have had several occasions to work with Richard Blount II. We were thoroughly impressed with his skill as a photographer and felt that he was actually working with us, as a partner would do. He was able to take our vague ideas and turn them into the perfect photograph and the perfect ad layout. He exceeded our expectations and we would highly recommend him to anyone else who is in need of “creative genius”.Robert W. Simmons |
Four Winds Agency is my go to source for everything marketing. I feel confident that their wealth of experience will guide me in the right direction when it comes to branding myself. The recent Direct Mail piece that Four Winds designed for me is timeless and continues to drive results. I find working with this agency to be easy both in communication and delivery of final product. Very pleased with this partnership!Shelley |
