You have the patience of a Zen Master!

It was good experience working with Shaan on the re-launch of our website. Shaan is technically competent and knowledgeable in this area of work. Thank you.

After working with several website developers, our experience with ChillyBin was a breath of fresh air.  They cared about our website just as much as we do.  We are extremely happy with the final product and going forward will never work with anyone else.  Thank you ChillyBin!

We wanted a website that is user-friendly and easy to maintain.  Shann understood our needs and came up with our site in a short period of time.  He walked us through the process and always helpful in answering our questions as we went along.

Shaan is patient and very responsive. 

We truly appreciate the quality and timeliness of work ChillyBin has done.

ChillyBin showed great enthusiasm and creativity in assisting us with a client request. Their sense of urgency and the flexibility to re-create what we wanted was amazing! I’ll definitely be using them again in future.

Baker Engineering were very pleased to instruct ChillyBin to design and develop our new website. We enjoyed working with ChillyBin as they were easy to deal with and the website they delivered perfectly suited our requirements.

We asked ChillyBin to create a site for us at very short notice. He managed to deliver us with a great site, built to spec, at such short notice, and was fantastic at accommodating late changes. We’ve used Shaan before and find him great to deal with. Highly recommended!

Thanks Shaan for being patient and understanding towards us, given the numerous amendments which we had you made in relation to our website. Additionally, thank you for your prompt response in making these admendments, and in responding to our queries.

Thank you so much, I’m very impressed!

Working with ChillyBin has been a very smooth and good example of how a web design agency and client can collaborate to produce positive results.

At the Ethics in Finance – Robin Cosgrove Prize we were fortunate enough to not be stuck with the common website design quandry of having to write content or plan our website structure. This was already in place, but only through an outdated website sitting on a legacy version of a CMS. Our brief to ChillyBin was simple, using existing content, refresh the design and feel of the sight to show the RCP as the now mature NFP prize that it is in the financial sector. This was especially important given that our organisation had recently been picked up and highlighted globally by the IMF as positive tool for generating ideas to improve ethics in the finance sector.

Throughout the design process Shaan provided us with frequent updates, opportunities to provide feedback which, after iterating the design further, produced the smooth and professional website we see today. Small updates and tweaks following publication have all been carried out in short order following the launch of the new website and no task has been too trivial.

All of this has amounted to a positive experience from which we are more than satisfied with the results Shaan and ChillyBin have produced.

Shaan and Chillybin were great in helping us make a great looking, easy to use site for our yearly music festival. They created a simple and effrective vessel for us to fill with the ever changing needs and new information coming through for such a large festival, and perfect for our needs.

We made the right choice when we selected ChillyBin to rework our website. Not only did the outcome exceed our expectations, but working with someone who really understands the customers’ needs and requirements made it that much easier.  Impressive work Shaan – keep it up ChillyBin!

Right from the get-go I felt that Shaan really understood my needs and proposed ideas that totally fitted in with my brand and company image. It was like a breath of fresh air talking to him versus other web designers who suggested standard templates without really understanding what I wanted. Shaan makes the effort to work closely with his clients to deliver a customised service. I am very happy with my new website and have received great feedback!

ChillyBin have done a great job on our site – they listed to what we wanted to achieve, were flexible when we kept changing our minds, and used their own creative judgement to provide us with a website that we’re delighted with and has also received many favourable comments. 

Chillybin understand the challenges that arise in building our event websites and are able to offer good solutions to allow for a smooth user experience. They are also very responsive, which is very important for us

I would like to congratulate ChillyBin on a job well done with the design and illustration of my book along with the development of the book purchase website. Key to highlight is how they were spot-on with the creation of the appropriate hand sketches to offer an identity to each chapter. A picture is truly worth a thousand words. Many thanks also to ChillyBin for their patience at every step of the way. It was a long journey indeed to the FINISH line. No qualms working with them again on my next book!

Shaan has done an incredible job with our project Miami Horror on tight deadlines, vague directions and multiple people to answer to. Definitely will get him for our next online project.

There are few web development firms around that possess the knack for understanding a client’s business “personality”, and be able to exude that with subtle professional class. ChillyBin is one of them. From the initial phase of conceptualising our website to its completion, they clearly understood our brand values and market positioning. I’d recommend them to anyone looking to build a strong brand-centric website.

Shaan is head and shoulders above any other coder/web designer we’ve ever worked with, from his excellent responsiveness to the careful consideration he gives to all aspects of our technical planning, which helps us to build our business. We can’t imagine doing without him now! 

Shaan and Chillybin were able to help us make sense of a very big project with lost of complexities, and make it simple for us. He went beyond to deliver to a extremely tight deadline and helped us create a user experience that makes sense of a lot of information, and with an ease of use on our side.

The communication and professionalism that we here at The History Channel got from ChillyBin surpassed our expectations and impressed us greatly. Any question was quickly answered and they were more than happy to explain their processes to us as well. We now have a great website and an enhanced knowledge base thanks to ChillyBin.

After talking with Shaan I was amazed at how quickly he was able to put my website together. My clients have commented on the both the clean sharp look and the functionality of the site. I am very happy and can’t recommend Shaan at ChillyBin highly enough.

Shaan is a well-versed developer who comes with years of experience. You can tell not by reading his portfolio but by how quick his responses are to questions posed to him about any project he is on. He is reliable, extremely committed and has a quick turn round time. I hired Shaan of ChillyBin to redesign and develop a brand new website for my company. The new website looks really good, works well and has received many compliments. I am very happy with his work and will recommend him to anyone who needs a good developer. Thank you Shaan!

ChillyBin is great in suggesting theme for our company website. The WordPress CMS and SEO add on help us to be aware of the visitor profile and we can plan our internet strategy effectively. Cost is within our budget and it’s worth getting ChillyBin for our web design.

I definitely recommend ChillyBin as I would use their services again if required. The team listened to what I wanted, understood me, gave me a fair price, delivered the project on time and was always available to fix minor bugs afterwards.

We selected Chillybin to develop our new website due to their experience in WordPress installations. We were not disappointed. Shaan was able to deliver what we wanted in a short time frame and within budget. Whenever we ran into issues during the development process, Shaan always responded promptly and resolved the problems within a day or two. Great service and highly recommended for wordpress websites.

Foxtel contracted ChillyBin to develop two show microsites, “The People Speak” and “Mankind” for The History Channel, Australia.  Not only are these sites attention grabbers, but Shaan took our ideas, and turned them into a seamless user experience.  When another priority for our channel comes up, we’ll be contacting ChillyBin to make us shine.

Shaan and Chillybin provided a great solution to update the CMC Music Awards site. For the first time we had one voting form for all catergories, making sense of all the diffrent categories and nominations for us, and making it user friendly, great looking and delivered quickly and easily.

Shaan and Chillybin were able to help us with a quick turnaround and a robust, flexible site for a client promotion. Because of the control, we were able to impress the client with our real time interaction and post event videos – all easily managed by us.

ChillyBin did an excellent job conceptualizing and executing a website that was functional and innovative. The level of detail was brilliant as they integrated Facebook to a level no other local developer could offer at the time. Don’t hesitate, these guys are good at what they do.

ChillyBin brought a refreshingly new approach to assisting Elite Resorts of Asia Pacific/Destination Elite with its recent global launch. They not only provide up-to-date technical expertise but also are quite creative in their approach to solving problems – basically, there is no problem that isn’t solvable!

Shaan and the team at Chillybin stepped up to the plate with their development expertise at short notice to help us deliver a superb website for Bento. Whatever the scope of the request, Chillybin never fail to find a solution to make it happen in the best way possible. Highly recommend their work in all things digital and look forward to working with them again.
