Alaska Legal Services Corp
We are so grateful for the hard work, patience, and creative energy that Chris put into our new website! Our organization was extremely impressed by the high-quality of work and by how fast the website was completed.
From the initial point of contact to after the redesign was complete, Chris took time to learn about our communications needs in order to create something that would truly work for our clients and organization. We were particularly impressed by the professionalism, patience and flexibility that Chris demonstrated in navigating through our different needs. The new website is already making an impact in helping the clients we serve find the resources and services they need. Thank you to Tomatillo Design for meeting and exceeding our expectations!”
Chris was a pleasure to work with. We especially appreciate that he took the time to learn about our target audience, which includes Tribes in remote areas of Alaska with limited technology infrastructure. He made sure the site reflected Alaska’s values and was easy and reliable to use.
Chris’s guidance and expertise in rolling out the updated site was invaluable and we are seeing increased traffic to the site and receiving positive feedback from users as a result.”
Anathoth Community Garden & Farm
Working with Chris Liu-Beers and Tomatillo Design to launch our stunningly re-branded website was a nonprofit Director’s dream. Every step of the process, we felt Chris’s commitment to use his skill and talent, as well as his own nonprofit experience, to strengthen and elevate the work of other nonprofits. Chris listened deeply to our vision for how our website could most fully represent our organization’s mission and work. We came in with minimal website design experience, but for each of our ideas, Chris taught us innovative tools and techniques to transform those ideas into beautiful, practical website features and structures for “user flow”.
We are thrilled with the end result — but what many people can’t see is the equally excellent quality of Chris’s work process. From the affordable rates and helpfully clear statement of offer, to his willingness to meet multiple times and answer long bulleted lists of questions with replies full of the same degree of detail — I could not have envisioned a more fulfilling process. An enthusiastic, clear, and patient teacher, he also empowered me and my co-workers to confidently manage the website. From beginning to end, we felt his respect for our work and his commitment to dreaming and creating with us, in collaboration.”
Black Mamas Matter Alliance
Designing a website for a social justice organization can be a daunting task, but Chris with Tomatillo Design, makes the process easy. From providing guidance on current trends on website functionality to specific attention to detail, Chris has done a great job with our new website to ensure it reflects the thematic feel of the work we do.
Since the launch of BMMA’s new website, traffic to our resources, initiatives, and even our donate page, have increased significantly. Chris provides great customer service, and is always willing to be a resource with our website updating needs. We will continue to partner with Chris in our future digital endeavors.”

Our team, which spans eighteen school districts, is extremely pleased with the results, due to Chris’s dedication and perseverance to finding the perfect solution.”
Chapel Hill Mennonite Fellowship
We didn’t know what was possible until we met with Chris. He invited us to imagine with him. From our conversations, Chris was able to translate our aspirations for an online presence into a beautiful and friendly website. His design offers windows into our community, glimpses of who we are.”
Charles D. Thompson, Jr., Filmmaker & Author
Chris exudes empathy. His approach is first to listen carefully, then he acts to represent exactly what he hears from his client. If he doesn’t get it right the first time, he’ll go back to the drawing board until the product suits all concerned. Chris is the person I want in my corner when I’m trying to communicate my message to a broader audience.”
Chatham Arts Council
Chris is incredibly responsive, generous of spirit, and knowledgeable. I appreciated all those things, but the two things I appreciated the most:
1) He had a clear process and guided us through it, with honest feedback about what it would take to meet our deadline.
2) He has first-hand knowledge of the importance of a strong focus and clearing the clutter on an organization’s website–and the importance of creating a website that does as much work as possible for an organization that’s already stretched in time and resources. Hugely valuable and rare.”
Color of Education
Chris has been wonderful to work with. He’s been extremely responsive, flexible, and professional throughout the process, and has gone above and beyond to help us realize our vision.

There is no way we could have accomplished this new site without Chris’ guidance and direction over the whole project. I HIGHLY endorse and recommend Chris and his company to anyone who may have a need for website design.”
Durham Nativity School
We’ve been able to take our website from a basic website to a much more professional site that reflects the image that we would like to portray to our target audience. Chris gave us direction, guidance, and tips on the best way to design our website and include the necessary content. Our website is now much more intuitive and functional.”
Working with Chris to rebuild our website was such a pleasure! Chris did an excellent job of listening to what our needs were and making suggestions of how to improve what we offer to our audience. The end product is a website that is both more user-friendly and much easier for me to maintain. Chris’s work has made my day-to-day work more efficient and has allowed me to engage more effectively with the attorneys that our agency serves.”
Gobin Memorial United Methodist Church
You don’t just need a website. You need a good website. I’ve tried many other do-it-yourself web services, including those catering to churches specifically. My experience with Chris was an entirely different experience, and worth every penny. He is a professional – not just his ability to produce a clean website, but also his gift of helping an organization tell their story to the world.
The week after our website launch, a new family visited our church for the first time. Their high school-aged daughter found the site and convinced the family to attend. That was cause for celebration.”
Johnson Service Corps
Chris did a fantastic job with his revamp of our website. It’s crisper, more modern, and easier to navigate. We’ve gotten nothing but compliments about it. What visitors to the site don’t see is how wonderful Chris is to work with. He listened to what we needed and made the process easy and affordable, a real win-win for a small nonprofit like ours!”
NC Get Covered
My organization was in need of a new website before the start of open enrollment for healthcare… We were working under a tight time schedule and with a limited budget. Chris was the answer to our prayers! He delivered on his promise to create a website that was highly functional, aesthetically appealing and easy to navigate. And, he accomplished all of this in less than two months and significantly under budget. Tomatillo Design offers the best value for your dollar, hands down!”

We have received nothing but praise from visitors to our new website. Chris skillfully (and patiently!) created a site that is both informative and enjoyable to navigate. Having a fresh, professional look makes my colleagues and I proud to widely share our website as a resource.
Chris is wonderful to work with because he shows not just a commitment to detail and professionalism but a genuine commitment to presenting our organization in the best possible way.”
North Carolina Health News
Chris had never done anything like our site before and he completely rose to the occasion when we asked him to create a dynamic site that features daily updates. His design was clean and usable, and his suggestions helped us increase our readership and explode the subscriptions to our associated newsletter. He was readily available and responsive to our requests for changes and evolving needs.
I can’t recommend Chris highly enough!

Chris understands what every successful nonprofit needs, and this knowledge is reflected in the modern website designs he creates. He went beyond other website developers by providing tools that empower our team to continue building the platform we need and to have full ownership over it. We cannot overstate the quality of his work and professionalism – he is efficient, effective, and responsive. He is also a joy to know.”
Chris understands that our website is our lifeline. He is thoughtful about the need to user-friendly, both for those who will visit our website, and those who will endeavor to administrate it. And when we have faced surprises or problems, Chris has resolved them quickly! Chris is patient and kind and I highly recommend him and his work.”

Since launching, my day to day work has been transformed by the fresh look and functionality of our new site, and the response from our supporters has been overwhelmingly enthusiastic!”
Ricky Hurtado, NC Representative
Working with Chris was the best decision I made as I got started with my political campaign. As a first-time candidate, there were a lot of questions about the best design and functionality for my website. Chris not only listened to my questions and concerns, but he went above and beyond to do his own research to make sure we were positioned to have our best digital foot forward as we launched our campaign. Having a clean, crisp, and great looking website has done wonders to raise my profile as I run in a competitive race in my community.”

I can’t say enough about Chris and his work! He was very patient and professional every step of the way. He was a true partner in the design of our website and he really listened to what I needed. I highly recommend working with Chris on any and all website design projects.”
Sandra Vander Linde, Professional Therapist
I was really impressed with how Chris interpreted my vague vision for a site and made it materialize in a way I would not have imagined myself. I love the clean look, the detail of the home page and believe it represents me and my work well. Thank you, Chris!”
Shakori Hills GrassRoots Festival
Our site needed some updating and a little new life breathed into it. Chris did exactly that and more. He’s great at listening, getting back to us with feedback, and making suggestions for things we didn’t even know we wanted. He really created a beautiful, user-friendly site that works best for our needs.”
I have been so impressed with Chris at Tomatillo Design, and thankful for his thorough, thoughtful, positive work on the Sisters’ Voices website. He had the site ready to go live well before expected, having listened to all our hopes and dreams, and having made all of them happen! He continues to stay on top of the details and to support us as we learn to use the site well. All the people who pointed us to Chris were right on — he is flexible, resourceful, and creative, and he knows his craft extremely well.”

As a new and only full time staff person for a nonprofit, having the support of a professional web designer made all the difference in launching a completely new website. Chris was very patient and great at explaining our options and making recommendations. We love our site, and we love that we have Chris’ full and ongoing support.”
Southern Coalition for Social Justice
Tomatillo Design made the process of developing a new website for my non-profit smooth and easy. Chris walked me through each part of the process and worked through design issues with me when I wasn’t sure of what I wanted. We are really excited about showing off our new website because it reflects the positive impact we aim to have on the state of Montana.”
UNC Center for Maternal & Infant Health
Chris Liu-Beers offered us thoughtful and sage advice as we redesigned our website. He helped us think strategically about the site and created some very innovative functions that revolutionized the way our visitors access the information they need.
Chris was very patient with our team as we switched out images and fonts and layouts until we came upon the perfect look. Our full redesign and launch happened in just a few months thanks to Chris’ quick work and nice attention to detail. We highly recommend Chris to any nonprofit looking to rebrand and refresh their website – we have fallen in love with our website now all over again!”
World in Prayer
With our new website, we’re getting more new subscribers every day than we used to get in a week.
We have received lots of positive comments about the new site. Here’s one example: ‘Wow! Thanks for your beautiful re-design of the World in Prayer. It is a wonderful piece of work. Just wanted to express my enthusiasm as a random user.’”
