John Hirschboeck, Cloverly Consulting
2016: “I highly recommend the services of Toni Mills, a talented and multi-faceted web design, e-marketing and graphic design expert.
I have had the pleasure of working with Toni for the past 6 years. She has become an invaluable “go to” person for virtually all of my many design needs, including website development and maintenance, brochure design, on-line ticketing, e-marketing and more. Toni is not only an accomplished graphic designer, she knows how to translate design into measureable marketing programs for maximum impact.
Toni has also volunteered her time and talent as a fellow board member of the Arts & Cultural Alliance of Newport County, where she designed and managed the website and e marketing newsletter program.
Not only is Toni multi-talented, she is responsive, dedicated, and reliable. Assign Toni a project and you know it will be done professionally, on-time and on budget. When one has lots of balls in the air, it’s reassuring knowing Toni is there to assist, whenever called upon. And, she is a joy to work with.” John Hirschboeck, Cloverly Consulting

Newport Ocean Drive Map & Guide
“Thanks to the talent, experience and perseverance of Toni Mills, my Newport map, “Newport’s Ocean Drive Map & Guide Plus Bellevue Avenue, Cliff Walk & Other Major Sights,” became a reality! Map-making was new to me, so I depended on Toni’s skills. She determined the requirements for the photos, text and the map itself. With Toni’s technical expertise and my journalistic background, we became a synergistic team working through the challenges. She also provided a smooth, important transition and communication conduit between her office and the print shop. Next, Toni developed the map website, which is informative and attractive. Toni’s up-to-date skills plus her good cheer took my map project from start to successful completion!” Betty Ann Czech, Newport Tourist Products LLC

Fortunately the recommendation of Toni Mills brought someone to us who was able to develop a web site that surpassed our expectations in it’s look and functionality. The site has been up for less than a week and we are already receiving compliments on the look of our new tile collection. This is what we had hoped for! While presentation may not be everything, we know that it counts for a lot. In this case it is our virtual showroom. We couldn’t be more pleased with the work Toni has done!” Peter Prip, co-owner Milagros Metal Tile Co.

Two things I most appreciate in working with Toni are she doesn’t know the word “no” and she is very responsive. We asked to change format—no problem. We asked how we could change the site in one link to being broker-friendly—she figured out a way. And she was very quick to respond with ideas and produce what we needed. She is terrific at following up and getting the job done. It was a pleasure to work with Toni and use her services. We will surely do it again!” Ann Avery, Broker, Northrop and Johnson, Fort Lauderdale, FL

National Tennis Club, Newport
2016: “I have had the pleasure of working with Toni Mills over the past year. She was contracted to create a new web site for the National Tennis Club in Newport, Rhode Island. The club had been chosen to host the 2016 Real Tennis World Championship and our web site wasn’t up to the task of being the focal point for the distribution of all the information need by both members and guests who would want to know what was going on.
Toni took up the task on a very tight schedule and helped us prioritize the various sections of the web site so that ticket reservations for seats and various social events could be processed in an efficient and timely manner. She trained our employees and various Board members as to how to update the various member sections so the site is continuously updated and alive with information that members and guests need to know.
She is professional, courteous, and patient. She responds to all requests promptly and keeps her promises with regard to costs and deadlines. I would recommend her without reservation for any project involving web design and development.” Stephen J de Voe III, President, National Tennis Club

Not only did Toni give us a dynamic home page complete with slideshow, but she streamlined the content, broadened the scope of our web presence, and gave the site a beautiful color scheme that absolutely pops off the screen when you see it. We are extremely pleased with Toni’s work and will continue to call on her for future changes and updates.” David Loughborough, CEO, Loughborough Marine Interests, LLC
