Alex Rakic has been absolutely phenomenal in helping build and launch the educational website Be Smart, Don’t Choke! Alex quickly grasped the scope and importance of the project. Alex put all of his considerable talents into the project, down to the smallest of details.
Even though I don’t have a computer background, Alex was able to clearly explain how to use the WordPress website editing program, so that I could make most of text edits myself. When time pressures required that I ask Alex to make some somewhat more complex edits, Alex happily took these edits on; and usually within minutes, Alex sent me an email to let me know that the task had been accomplished.
Alex is a complete professional. As this website is being prepared for translation and global dissemination, I have full confidence in Alex to continue to steer it in the right direction.

We worked with Alex Rakic on several web sites and he did a fantastic job on each. Alex is a true professional and a pleasure to work: he knows how to obtain the requirements a client has in mind without overburdening them with questions and is able to deliver complex, well-designed working solutions under strict deadlines. He is also able to adapt the proposed solutions very quickly to match the client’s expectations and usually, exceed them by a significant margin.
All of these qualities make Alex a top professional whom I strongly recommend — if your goal is to obtain top of the line results that look and feel great on projects that you care about, Alex is your choice.

Website building often requires a mix of creative thinking and technical skills, and that is exactly why Alex is one of the best! His ability to capture requirements and transform them into a website is exceptional. He is quick, analytical, and very clear in his communication. He has a very structured way of working, which is great for bigger and more complex projects.
One of his qualities that stood out for me was his attention to detail! He would always go above and beyond to make sure everything looked perfect! We had an amazing time working with him and I look forward to continuing working with him on future projects.
Founder & CEO
I’ve been working with Alex for the last one and a half years. Alex recently developed our corporate website with much care and attention to detail with the user experience in mind. What has made our collaboration successful is his ability to be responsive, professional and flexible. He has been result oriented in other aspects of project websites such as updates or system administration. We are happy to work with him and will continue to foster this collaborative relationship we have developed.

And, a finicky client.
For most, this would be an issue. Not for Alex. Calm, cool and collected, he delivered. With the project in his hands, I always felt like everything was under control. He delivered. On time, on budget, and above expectations.
I will be using Rakic Creative again for future projects.
Alex is such a treat to work with! I have worked with him on several occasions, for both website clean-ups and new builds and have found him to be both patient and professional in every instance. His expertise in this field is unparalleled against the other web developers I’ve worked with, and his efficiency at project completion is always impressive.
In our most recent project building the Compel Communications website from scratch, Alex not only took the time to understand my creative vision, but he also made design suggestions of his own which were very helpful. I have and will continue to refer my clients to Alex for the exceptional work he does.
We began working with Alex with less than two months to the planned relaunch of our brand. We were looking for someone to deliver a functional site that could creatively reflect our services and experiences with style.
With a limited budget and aggressive timeline Alex delivered designs ahead of schedule and with great thought and understanding of our end goal. He is a true web partner in every sense of the word.

Alex was a dream to work with. He was so co-operative, understanding, and fantastic at communication; I never had any doubt of his commitment to my very specific vision for the project. He produced a website and logo completely in sync with my desires — in fact it often seemed like he understood what I wanted better than I did! Nevertheless, at every step along the way he was always eager to ensure he was making decisions that met my approval.
My vision for the site was quite complex, with an elaborate organization of text and graphical elements. Much to my surprise, Alex was not only able to create such a design, but make the back end CMS of the site extremely easy and intuitive to manage and update. A true tribute to his unique talents.

Alex has been instrumental for Boyle Design on a number of digital projects – he can make sense of what your website requirements are in very short order, and also provides friendly, razor-sharp email correspondence during the assignment.
Alex has the ability to run with a project from a design and development lens, or if the front-end design of the website has been conceived, he can bring it to life based on the already approved design. Alex also creates very intuitive CMS instruction for the end user. I look forward to working with him again.

I hired Alex Rakic to design and build a brand new website for The River Club. Alex captured all the elements I required. The website is smartly designed, comprehensively informational and captures the feel and community spirit of The River Club. Alex is a detail-focused, accommodating individual that is extremely knowledgeable in his craft and wonderful to work with.
Since the website launch, I have hired Alex to design a company business card for a new venture. Needless to say, I was impressed yet again by his creative abilities, professional nature and commitment to my satisfaction.
If you’re looking for a skillfully intuitive designer and programmer that will ensure your needs are met, talk to Alex.

Alex was instrumental in the development of brand new Hammerco website which launched in October 2020. He organized all company domains and set up a new server to better serve the new website along with two other sister sites (Helpforme and Bush&Co) — this solved a lot of problems and helped set our firm up for success.
He has also been a tremendous support with taking care and maintaining of all our websites. We would highly recommend him to anyone, he is exceptional with details, always completes his work on time and responds quickly to any requests.

Alex was really strong at time management which ensured our team stayed on track and our site launched on time. As always, things came up that we didn’t predict but Alex was not only quick to jump to the task but also understanding if revisions needed to be made.
Alex is open to trying new approaches while being experienced enough to know when a new approach isn’t what’s needed. His clear communication style and willingness to offer additional explanation along the way made the process both exciting and enjoyable.

Alex’s confidence in creation balanced well with his ability to deliver on schedule. I would highly recommend Alex’s services to anyone that wants a job well done and on time.

The Conconi Family Foundation has had the privilege to work with Alex Rakic for several years and he has provided key guidance and support in developing and maintaining our website. He is extremely responsive, organized and above all a good listener. We believe these traits help him design and deliver a product that meets our needs.

I was feeling the need for an overhaul of the brand identity and direction of my photography business, so I knew I needed to contact Alex immediately. He had previously designed a simple yet effective WordPress site and logo for me and I knew that I could trust him to provide again. This time around I was looking for something fresh, modern, simple, and clean that would showcase my photographs, and Alex delivered! He was able to create a logo and website that really resonated with my style.
I highly recommend Alex. He is the right choice if you are looking for a professional designer who is very efficient, mindful of a tight budget, and can deliver a finished product in a timely manner.

Not only is Alex exceptional at all he does from helping his clients with original unique brand identity to building his outstanding intuitive websites… Alex has the one quality you can’t teach or fake; he cares! He honours his word, but what really makes Alex stand out is he cares about the client, his work, and for those who’ll be viewing and experiencing his finished product… In a world of so-so’s, Alex is a refreshing original who’s a joy to do business with!
Alex is a superstar! I’ve said this to him 6 years ago and I continue to vehemently stand by my word. I have had the privilege of being his instructor for several courses during my tenure at Capilano University. From day one, he set himself apart from all the other students based on his maturity, leadership abilities, willingness to help others, attention to details and eagerness to learn and excel in whatever the task at hand — no matter how minute.
After graduation, he remained true to his personae and work ethic. He continued to build upon his skills and talent, but at an unbelievably accelerated pace. As a result, I can say — without any hesitation — that the quality of his work is on par with some of the top interactive designers in the country. But more importantly, his level of professionalism, integrity, and pride is what sets him apart and above the rest. I look forward to the day when I see his name recognized around the world as a leader in this industry. That way I can proudly say, “I knew him when he first started”, and be the first to buy stocks in his company!
I have worked with Alex Rakic for several great years while I was the Studio Director for Cowie and Fox and continue to work with him as a contractor at my new company Noel Fox Inc. Alex is very organized and builds great web sites, he is also easy to work with and completes his projects on time and on budget.
Having spent considerable time with Alex both at work and on the tennis court, where he continually kicks my butt, I can confidently say that he is a fun and likeable person who knows how to balance work and play just right. Alex is a great guy and I highly recommend him for all of your web building needs.
