Matt created an entirely new website for me.  He was able to create my vision of what an Artist website should look and feel like. He did not leave out any details and collaborated with my sister and I throughout the entire process to assure that I was completely satisfied.  Matt was patient and kind, he made all the adjustments we requested and still does that to this day.  My website turned out just as I dreamed. It’s awesome and works the way I want it to.  I highly recommend Matt Keffer to everyone! George E. Miller, owner

"Matt has always been a consummate professional. He combines high technical skill with the design sensibilities of a true artist. The website work he's done for us has worked like it should -and looked really good while doing it. He is one of the best photographers in the area. I also appreciate how much he cares about, and does, for Kent and surrounding communities. He's the best!" Chris Cooper, Director, OEOC

I have only the highest recommendations for Matt and his quality of work. In developing our studio website, I had very specific ideas for the look, layout and functional web presence.  In every instance, Matt was able to bring all those ideas to life.  In addition, he offered excellent advice and applied his design expertise and knowledge in the process.  
The end result is a stunning website and I could not be happier our collaboration and with the final product.  It’s also worth noting, that he is super-patient and just an all-around good guy.  I highly recommend his services. You will be very happy with his level of professionalism and enthusiasm for maximum positive impact.  A+ on a job well done!

I had been searching for years for a person or a company to develop my personal website. The storytelling process was a priority, so the design required a specific approach. But in all cases I was directed to a template and was only permitted to correspond with design professionals through text or email. Then, I was introduced to Matt Keffer. With Matt’s help and guidance, we were able to collaborate throughout the process of creating a website that was exactly what I envisioned for the social documentary experience. Careful consideration went to merging content and aesthetics with practical navigation and simplicity. Matt was very easy to work with and I came to value his suggestions. Ultimately, Matt’s artistry merged with mine and I’m thrilled with the results. I hope to work with him again on future projects.

Standing Rock Cultural Arts was lumbering along with an old website that was built in 2002.  We have had several complaints in recent years that our website was extremely outdated and not mobile friendly.  We spent a year sampling possibilities with Wordpress but found that there were many limitations and was priced to high to fit our budget.  Then, along came Matt Keffer from arKe Web design, and in a matter of months we had an exciting new website that was mobile friendly.

I highly recommend arKe Web Design for anyone who is in need of a modern web design.  Standing Rock Cultural Arts has a lot going on with events, exhibitions, programs, an online store, and public art projects.  Matt was able to streamline all the activities and allow visitors a truly user friendly experience.   Please visit and see for yourself.

I've had the pleasure of working with Matt for a number of years in a variety of ways. One way especially is I've leaned on his expertise for my website. In addition to his expertise, it's easy to work with him. He designed my site and keeps it updated. It's been a big help to me to have a place where my work is available for people to view.
