Tom Hale is nothing short of amazing. He not only brings his considerable web design skills to every project, he also brings his heart, humanity and excellent listening skills to the job. Tom has designed and maintains 3 different websites for us – each is very different in content and audience and each website is in turn, beautifully done, professional, and brings its message clearly and vividly to our customers and participants.
Working with Tom is a delight. I can’t recommend him and his company highly enough. Thank you Tom for being a part of the success of the Dendros Group and for being a key to the growth and spirit-filled work of The Grief Project.

Tom was awesome to work with! He understood the exact image I was looking for, for my website and I felt like I was involved in every step of creating it. Tom was there for any questions that I had during the process and even after the site was created he will stay on top of any changes or updates you want made. I definitely recommend New Day Web Design to anybody who is looking to make a website. He will stay in your budget and make your business look professional!

From 2004-2010, Tom served as Webmaster for the American Choral Directors Association of Minnesota. During those dedicated years, Tom carefully guided our membership into embracing and fully utilizing our website for membership renewal, conference registration, and our annual state-wide elections. He also developed easy-to-follow procedures that permitted our members to purchase products via credit card services. In addition, he continued to explore and develop new methods of communication both within and outside of the organization. An innovator and problem solver, Tom enhanced the way our membership responded to the website which, in his final year, experienced over 15,000 hits. Tom was the “on-line pulse and presence” of ACDA-MN to our entire state membership which serves as an outstanding model to other state chapters. His special work has been recognized and sought out all across the country.

I’d highly recommend web developer Tom Hale of New Day Web Design to anyone who wants to use web technology to reach a particular audience, but doesn’t have the time, patience or skill to get up-to-speed with this constantly changing medium. Tom helped me add a blog to my existing web site and installed a new technology platform (Drupal) that will allow me to add other features as my ambitions evolve. He didn’t force solutions on me, but listened to my needs and the direction I wanted to go. He worked efficiently, didn’t talk down to me when I asked naïve questions, took the time to train me and follow up with me post-launch, and gave me easy-to-understand written instructions so I can implement changes on my own. Tom is easy to work with, professional, and his technology services are a great value!

The ‘Website Tonight’ plan I had purchased from GoDaddy was sliding toward ‘Website in Six Months,’ as I struggled to figure out how to use the site’s tools. Tom came to the rescue. He set up a template I liked in the colors I requested, uploaded my text and images, and created a site that was just as I had pictured. Then he provided an invaluable tutorial that helped me get comfortable with using the site. Now I’m having fun adding content and my own decorative touches.

Initially, I was very pleased with the way Tom designed my Website. Over the past years, I have come to appreciate his prompt and reliable maintenance of the site. I never hesitate to recommend his services when someone is looking for a webmaster.
Tom was very flexible and didn’t flinch when we asked him to build a Website using a new enterprise development tool. He listened to our needs and quickly built one of the first Websites at the University of Minnesota to use this new tool. The site integrates well with the other University websites and we are very happy with the end result.

Recently I was looking for some technical help to rebuild my website. Tom quickly understood the functions that I was seeking. He recommended a new platform (Drupal) and we decided to convert my site to that platform. He showed me how to use the core functions and I was able to create the content. As we added new features to make the site more robust, he was available to quickly resolve problems. I value his expertise, enjoy working with him as my technical consultant, and know that I can count on him when needed. I would recommend his firm to other businesses.
