Recommendations
Kevin is that rare breed of who can do everything technical, from designing and implementing sophisticated websites and social media campaigns, to designing mobile apps and user interfaces. He can also handle the artistic side of things, with compelling print or online graphics required to get your story across. If that weren't enough, he has a keen business mind and entrepreneurial spirit - helping you realize your business objectives by leveraging technology. High quality, fast, thorough. Need I say more?
Kevin has the most up to date knowledge when it comes to creating and programming websites and how they interact with various forms of social media. Kevin looks beyond just programming and practical application. He thinks in depth about how users will interact with the sites he designs and builds. He works effectively with clients when it comes to making recommendations and explaining the technology. He is very knowledgeable, easy to work with and conscientious. I recommend him easily and without reservation.
Kevin not only helped to build our website, he has been very responsive to our calls for "how-to" assistance. Kevin has a keen sense of what the customer needs as a result of his ability to listen and learn. He then puts everything together in a creative and attractive way and stays on as part of the team. I highly recommend Kevin as a webdeveloper and for his professional results and attitude.
Kevin has implemented many advantageous solutions and assisted Big Dog Ranch Rescue advance in countless areas. Kevin is honest, easy to work with and consistently punctual. His creativity & finesse is inspiring to our team. We would highly recommend Kevin's skills and expertise to anyone requiring a successful conclusion.
There's not enough room in this box to fully explain the value that Kevin has brought to our organization. His visionary approach to web design and development has transformed our company's online presence - that goes without saying. But what speaks even more directly to his professional contributions and merit is Kevin's ability to teach others and convey (often complex) technical concepts in a digestible and actionable way. His involvement in our communication, marketing and branding strategies has helped create an environment and culture within the organization that prioritizes and values the innovative use of technology and social media. And if that weren't enough, Kevin is just a stand up guy in general. I always look forward to working with him on projects because I know he's dependable, intelligent, hilarious and insanely good at what he does.
Kevin is our 'guru' when it comes to all things internet. He keeps abreast of the rapidly changing web world, and is our 'go to guy' for counsel. Kevin is a contributor of the highest caliber. His technical expertise is unmatched, and his relentless commitment to all of our projects and our people makes him a tremendous asset for our company. On top of that, he's just a great guy to work with.
If anything, Kevin is too available and capable. I call him; he calls me back. I ask for something; he does it ... and very well. I'm stupid about something; he gently educates me. Can't go wrong with this guy.
Social media, Web site development, Brand recognition, that is Kevin O' Neill, His work ethic is great he thinks out of the box but does not lose sight of the target market. Kevin and Jim Olson that is a group you can't beat. He lives by the old principle of hard work and honesty "putting the client first last and always" Hats off to Kevin
I have had the good fortune to work very closely with Kevin for nearly three years now and I can say, without reservation, that he is truly a wealth of knowledge in so many areas. Crossing the enterprises of marketing, advertising, branding, graphic design and creative and including extensive work within the expanding world of the digital domain Kevin is not only aware of, but possesses mastery of, new technologies and market trends and his vision and foresight to recognize previously unseen opportunities make him a true pioneer within his industry.
I enjoyed working with Kevin and I am looking forward to work with him again soon.

Kevin brings a lot of energy and creative thought to the process of web design. We wanted a complete overhaul of our existing site and Kevin was able to deliver an exceptional site, on time, and with all the latest features and attributes we were looking for, especially in regards to social media. Our website looks great and is extremely functional and easy to keep updated with new and fresh information. I highly recommend Kevin and ZGDA for web design.
Grand Master Kevin Oneal is a true Wizard with anything technical. He's proved to me over and over that he is completely reliable, smart, "on the ball" and has my best interests in mind at all times. He has advanced thinking and know how. He's always ahead of schedule and communicates throughout the entire process. He can tackle complicated backend coding and Ill never use anybody else for my web based needs.
He's Pro....
