I, Alpin Hong, am a Juilliard-trained concert pianist who has toured all fifty U.S. states, been a guest performer at the White House, and developed artistic residencies in schools, universities, and performing arts institutions from coast to coast.
I first encountered Sharmaine Mitchell during my artistic residency at the Trinity School in Atlanta, Georgia. Part of the residency involved the use of iPads as instruments to introduce students to musicmaking and performance--an unprecedented combination of technology and artistry. Sharmaine produced a short video documentary of this process. This video was so compelling and spectacular that it was shown to Apple Computer executives to great acclaim.
Sharmaine's simple, clean, and elegant conception prompted me to request her aid for my website. As a concert artist, my web presence is indistinguishable from my public professional image. My site is often the first impression my audience receives prior to my live appearances. It was suffering from numerous technical and design issues, and Sharmaine was able to fix them was remarkable speed, ease, and utter professionalism.
I cannot recommend Sharmaine enough to anyone wishing to establish a distinctive brand, design, or web presence. Her remarkable ability to channel broad design concepts into organized, achievable goals distinguishes her from her colleagues. Her open, friendly nature makes her a pleasure to work with, and I look forward to working with her in the future.
