“Working with Carey Baker and Midnightson Designs has been a tremendous experience. I am so grateful I met him, and very pleased with the products he has produced. When anyone asks me about web design, I immediately think of Carey, both for his website and his cooperation throughout the process.”

I like Carey's style and approach with his clients. I like his calm and patient manner and his willingness to explain, teach and therefore, empower his clients to manage their own websites post launch. His design training and experience make him the perfect combination of developer and designer so the websites he creates are visually pleasing as well as well-built and intuitive. I have gotten many compliments from folks I have shared my site with and there are like no bugs in it at all, which is also very nice. Carey excels in explaining his process and the features of the website he's building. He was also sure to track the progress I was making on my website after it went live, which I appreciated. Carey also excels at being up on the latest trends, applications, and versions of all things Internet-related. I recommend Carey to clients and prospects who are looking for someone who is willing to take the time to explain and teach in order to empower the client to manage their site on their own. A client that appreciates and needs a steady, calm and gentle hand during the process. Carey is a great communicator (one of his greatest assets and one that can be rare in a website developer) and effectively conveys his knowledge, experience, and capabilities.
Carey Bakers work was so far beyond my own high hopes! His goal was to empower me the whole time, and he really did!
I needed professionalism to my Artistic career. I was thinking I would have to sacrifice much of what I most love about my juicy feminine artistic style to present myself professionally.
There was a lot of training and writing I needed to do to give Carey my content and learn how to manage my site. Carey was so fun patient generous and brilliantly insightful all along the way. So I started to relax and look forward so much to the process I had been afraid of. What he created was so lush, so full of feminine energy that I not only didn't have to sacrifice my magic artsy image, versatile he actually created branding that supports it! He also made versatile for my the ever changing nature of my business. His design was so truly beautiful that I savor looking at it every time I open my site. I feel so amazed and proud of myself!. He created texture and colors that were experiential! As soon as people see the site they just say "wow!" before reading it all, then they are drawn to the site on a journey he consciously designed to guide people pleasurably on a tour of my work that would be irresistible!
You must see! Check his beautiful work out! Evechristoph.net Thank you Mr. Baker! You made bread from my raw dough! I thank him from the bottom of my heart because my life is really flowing now that I have a great website. I have confidence and the one tool that brings everything together. If you are like me you need to reach the next level of presentation. You are in for a big treat and wonderful new level of life empowerment by choosing Midnightson Designs. With Carey Baker, you are getting both an artist and a business magician who can bring the life-giving power of the Sun even at midnight!!"
Carey is not someone who will cloud your vision with a lot of tech talk. He uses simple language, and if there is something you didn’t quite grasp he will explain it until you have a clear understanding of the matter. He is very knowledgeable in his field, and was able to fill all the requests we had for our new website (and we had many including a slide show, email sign-up, map, contact form, coupons, specific color scheme, blog etc.) He was always quick to respond to our phone calls and emails and worked out creative solutions for our problems. Carey also made excellent suggestions not only regarding our site but also regarding social media and other ways to engage our customers. Carey kept the price he had originally quoted us for our site, even though it turned out to be more work than originally expected. It has now been a few months since he finished the project and our customers are still showering us with complements on the great website.
We’re glad we went with Midnightson Designs.
“Carey Baker helped me to understand all the things my website could *do* for me, as well as how it could look. He was unruffled and patient with revisions when I discovered that my original ideas didn’t give me the look and feel I actually wanted. Thanks to Carey’s great listening skills and creative thinking, I have a beautiful, interactive website that delivers rich content in webpages that my colleagues are calling “gorgeous” “substantial” and “exciting”. I could not be more pleased with the results!”
“Carey Baker of Midnight Son Designs is a pleasure to work with. His knowledgable yet easy going style put me right at ease. No question was too small or any idea went unnoticed.He not only answered all my questions but still does! His design of my logo and website really took my site to another level. Carey made the experience exciting and now I can give my card out with pride instead of apologies.I would recommend Midnight Sons highly to anyone looking to take their business further.”
I would love to share what a great experience I had working with Carey Baker on my artist website. Carey did such a great job not only in understanding what my vision for the website was, but also in teaching me how to work with the program so that I could make changes and additions as I need to. He was generous with his time and is an excellent teacher. I feel so pleased with the outcome and with my ability to access the site myself. I would highly recommend Carey and his user-friendly approach to anyone looking to set up a website.
“Carey Baker has been creating outstanding corporate design, marketing and communication pieces for my company, O’Connell Development Group, for several years. Recently, on very short notice, we needed a customized portfolio of our projects for an important presentation. Carey was able to generate a design concept for our review within days and I had the completed, printed portfolio in my hands in time for the presentation; less than two weeks from the original request”
Creating a website and logo with Carey was a pleasure from start to finish. He was all the things you want in a designer: creative, responsive, and a skilled communicator. But on top of that, he brought to the project a generous spirit. Community-oriented professionals like Carey are essential to the health of non-profits in this region.
It's interesting how Carey came to my attention. I asked a few colleagues in the NoHo area. Word of mouth is wonderful advertising.
By chance, he and a couple members of my family sat next to each other at Fitzwilly's where they began a conversation about their perspective work - They shared with Carey my need to upgrade my website. The rest is happy history.
Life has magical spirit-filled coincidences!
Carey and I had soon had a brief dialogue on the phone regarding my need, and, how he could potentially fulfill it. He kept his word, sent his proposal in the mail, called a few more times to validate details - always respectful, kept to his time schedule, and, soon my site was finished to everyone's delight. I've received many compliments. Thank you, Carey!
Carey's personality was relaxed and confident. He has listening skills, didn't rush me, was patient, polite, and time efficient. Carey is a man of few words, and, is efficient with time. It didn't take him long to understand my needs, he was cooperative, flexible with ideas, always speaking calmly and softly.
Carey is a People Professional.
If you are looking for excellence from a web designer, look no further than Carey Baker from Midnight Son Designs. I have been very exceptionally pleased with my website. He listened to what I wanted and designed my website in the most professional way possible. He also took the time to teach me how to add to my website. That was such a gift to me, as this is not my area of expertise. Despite this, he made it easy for me, and made himself available when I had questions. He also designed my flyer, my business card and my tee shirt! I highly recommend Carey Baker. Not only was his work superb, he is also a kind and patient teacher.
Carey is great to work with: a good listener, an artistic eye, prompt and thorough work. Plus my new labels look great, people comment on them and it makes my products look much more professional.
Carey has an exceptional eye for detail, he has a very beautiful and tasteful design style, and he has such knowledge of what he is doing, that every moment working with him was a breath of fresh air. Carey trained me in how to operate my web site after he made the initial design, added photos and text. His style of teaching me was detail oriented, very clear, knowledgable, and with an enormous flair and patience. His prices are very reasonable, and I would recommend him to anyone who needs graphic or web design work done.
Midnight Son Designs created a blog that matches exactly what I wanted. I really appreciated the time taken to make sure I had what I wanted, and more importantly, to make sure I understand what I have. Also, helping to prod me forward in the process made sure that my idea transitioned into reality. Carey was very knowledgeable and skilled, but also very pleasant to work with.
I suspect my experience with developing a website and blog is similar to many. I tried on my own, with little success, and then hired 3 different “designers” to help me out. Each experience ended in disaster, and I was left with a mostly workable website, but not one that I felt good about. I was stuck using a template, which limited what I could do with the site, and was out a lot of money.A friend introduced me to Carey Baker, who agreed to help me, initially with making a more personalized blog connected to my website, and then with a total revamp of the website. I was hesitant initially, not having a great track record with website designers, but my hesitation quickly shifted. Carey’s work was excellent, and he was a pleasure to work with.As a jewelry designer, it was important to me that my website be clean, colorful, and easy to navigate. Carey took all my needs and suggestions and created a site that I am very pleased with. His ability to listen, offer suggestions, and create came together in what, I believe, is a great site. And he did all this at a fraction of the cost others charged me. I would recommend Carey for creative design work with no hesitation.
“Carey Baker has been designing flyers and programs pro bono for the Performance Project and First Generation for several years. He has been great to work with, flexible, generous, and his work is excellent. Every year, we receive so many compliments on the quality of the design work of our PR.”
Working with Carey of Midnight Son Designs has been a wonderful experience. From start to finish the process of purchasing a domain name, installing wordpress, customizing a theme, and fiddling with widgets took two weeks and that was with three revisions on the theme design! With each revision Carey was able to carefully consider each of my wishes, and implement them. I am so pleased with the design and feel confident that the foundation Carey laid will become a satisfying pulpit for sharing my thoughts, ideas and dreams of connecting children and families with nature. I highly recommend Midnight Son Designs.
