DAVID WOUDENBERG OF SAN DIEGO VACATION RENTALS:

Yelp Review: Over the past 40 years, I have placed a major emphasis on the preparation of color media that we have employed to accentuate the type of professional service provided by our vacation rental business as well as real estate brokerage. Approximately 20 years ago, I became acquainted with Jason at Ottographix who has proven to be a critical component for our own success. Since then, Jason and I have completed hundreds of projects that have resulted in millions of pages of color literature that I know he & I are both extremely proud of!

 

Jason is a very talented as well as creative individual who has helped guide me to achieve the type of representation our business strived to attain for so many years prior to his involvement. What I personally consider to be extremely valuable is that Jason is capable of offering the expertise that would normally require the professional services of several individuals. In our case, this means professional photography as well as a complete knowledge of all aspects of graphics. He coordinates not only all printing for both of our companies, but, he also has total control over our websites. In short, when considering a new project, it is very comforting to know this will require only one phone call. I would also encourage you to visit our website at sdvr.com to see the quality of work Jason provides.

 

While I would never say this to any of our other vendors, I can honestly confess that I have told Jason "You Really Should Be Charging More for the Type of Service You Provide!". I would invite anyone to contact me personally concerning Jason's capabilities as I would consider it a privilege to do so in appreciation for everything he has done for me. My personal cell phone number is 619-247-4678.

President, San Diego Realty Consultants

MY ISRAEL MEMORIES:

Regarding: Israel Country, Old Town Jerusalem And Temple Mount Maps

Jason, of Ottographix, recently created five different maps of various areas of Israel for me. These were not easy maps, by any means. The detail and precision required, as well the language translation from Hebrew to English were quite challenging - to say the least. Every one of the maps turned out absolutely AMAZING! The remarkable 3D icons, the color coordination within and between all the maps, the topography, font contrasts, legends, distance charts, etc. – everything impeccable and beyond what I ever could have conceived. All I can say is, "Thank you, Jason." And if you're looking for a cartographer, look no further - Jason is the ultimate! Joan Peace
