I have always received the help I needed to get my website running properly in a timely manner. Saurav really knows his work and knows how to meet his client’s expectations by providing the personal attention they need.
Saurav Purkayastha programmed an instructional CD in Flash for my client, the Justice Institute of BC, Sheriff Academy. This was a five module CD with many complex elements including video, multiple choice questions and links to supporting documentation. Saurav was very professional throughout this whole process. His problem-solving abilities are excellent, and he is very personable, and open to ideas and feedback. This client is very pleased with this CD. I would recommend Saurav highly.

My website christinity21c.com has garnered acclaim from readers for its simple, elegant design, and its extraordinary impact. Saurav Purkayastha, the website designer, is not only one of must multi-talented designers I have worked with, but, is, in addition, a creative artist with an elegant eyes for content and color. In the Banner of washingtonhotwire.com Saurav has blended elements of type and size and color so that they combine to make a strong statement not just on the eye, but, also the mind. It was extraordinary to work with Saurav on the Banner design. He is one of the few designers who lets you co-design your site — seeking, getting, giving, feedback every step of the way. He went through several hundred iterations of type and size, within the constraints of the colors that I had chosen, to produce not just a visually appealing Banner, but, one, that, also, created a powerful effect. Readers have reacted with surprise and awe and delight at the total effect. An artist and writer from Australia told me that it was the most appealing Banner he had seen in a long time — simple, direct, effective. Saurav and I went through several iterations of the Body of the website, also. Again, the result is a delight to the eye and an impressive hit on the mind. A reader said it was the most readable site he had comes across in a long time. He especially liked the choice of type faces and background colors which not only created a fully harmonious effect, but, contributed significantly to the website’s readability. The thing with working with Saurav, as I discovered while working along with him on the design of the washingtonhotwire.com site, is that no matter how great any, or every, piece of the design is, if all of the pieces don’t blend together, the site is not going to work, not going to make impact. As Saurav said during one of our design sessions — the purpose of the site is to showcase the product, and if the site does not showcase the product effectively, then the desired results will not be forthcoming. Saurav works with a technician’s skill and an artist’s eye to design a website that customers can enter and be comfortable in. They embrace the website, and, the website, in turn, envelops them. So that a symbiotic relationship develops between the site and the seeker, which encourages connectedness and confluence, community and commonality. After all, as businessmen, we’re not looking for consumers who flit in and out, who come and go. We’re looking to build a community of interests in our products and services. As my own site washingtonhotwire.com attests, you can hand your idea over to Saurav, and, he will transform it into a cornucopia of choices for your consumers. And, lastly, I would be remiss if I did mention that Saurav is one of the most easy-to-work-with designers that I know of. He relishes interaction. And, he responds to requests, and requests for changes, in less than a heartbeat, in less than a New York minute.
I was really happy with the work done to create our site. Saurav was good at listening to our needs. He pulled off exactly what we wanted in a timely manner. We’ve had lot’s of compliments on our site.

By the time I met Saurav I had already contracted two other web developers to work on our website with little success and as the year went by my site remained unfinished. I had paid a lot of money and had nothing but problems. Needles to say when Saurav told me he would be able to do exactly what I wanted for the price and timeframe that worked for me I was more than skeptical because this is what the previous developers had said as well but Saurav delivered. He understood what I wanted and how that translated into actually making it work on the site. We are a new company and a budget for web development is almost non-existent. Saurav was also able to break the costs down for each of the projects I wanted done. This allowed me to make improvement and still work within our budget.

I am delighted to write this letter of recommendation for Mr. Saurav Purkayastha, who is an extraordinary programmer. I have the pleasure of serving as the Chair of the Lower Mainland ESL Assessment Consortium. The Consortium is comprised of representatives from the twelve Lower Mainland Public School Districts. Members of the Consortium developed an English Reading test to be administered to students in grades eight to twelve. It is called the Lower Mainland English Reading Assessment (LOMERA). We administered the LOMERA to 4,800 students to explore its validity and reliability. Members were pleased with the results and concluded they wished to explore the development of an on-line version. The Consortium asked for proposals from different programmers. Mr. Purkayastha’s was clearly the best. Mr. Purkayastha has programmed an amazing on-line version of LOMERA. It allows individual students to take the timed test in separate locations. It produces individual results sheets for students designed to be informative for teachers. The programme is superb because as the Consortium develops new assessment measures it is designed to accommodate them. Overall, Saurav Purkayastha’s work is superb. He was responsive to our special educational needs and was willing to change basic features when requested. I recommend Saurav Purkayastha to you without reservations. He is a superb programmer who completes work in a timely manner in a thoroughly professional way. His work is superb.
