What Our Clients Say
I can’t possibly do this review justice but here it goes. I recently started working with an artist on a campaign, for which Ross was building the artist site for. I was immediately impressed with his communications and response in general. Ross is an incredibility empathetic and skilled person and I will be referring ALL artists in need of a website to him going forward. 1. Million. Stars.
- Christopher Carvalho (Manager for Elisabeth Elektra)
Working with Ross was a fun and professional experience. It was clear from the start and throughout our contract that he knew what he was doing, but more importantly cared about our end product as if he himself were a part of our band. I would highly recommend him for any and all web design work!
- Brian Taelor (Guitarist, Eugene Levy)
I’m so pleased with what Ross has created for me, it’s brilliant! He’s great to work with, very friendly, efficient, a great communicator and happy to keep going until the end product is 100% perfect. Thanks Ross, excellent work!

Ross was so fast, efficient and personable. He listened to my own ideas and merged them with his instinct for design. A true collaborator. Thank you!!

Words can hardly describe how utterly amazing it has been, to work with Ross at Electric Kiwi, but I’ll try.:)
For the past few years, I had wanted a site that represented my brand, and the various ways I show up in the world, including music, live event performance, coaching, and consulting…Before working with Ross, I found, even thinking about the new site, totally overwhelming and intimidating.
From day one, Ross laid my concerns to rest, and with his calm, confident nature guided me through every step of the website creation, and frankly brand-creation, process.
Ross possesses an extremely rare set of talents and character traits which make him priceless to any musician looking to build a world-class
* World-class understanding of design.
* Amazing ability to really listen, at times provide options while explaining the difference of those options.
* A-Plus leadership ability.
* Superior technical knowledge of the very best, cutting edge music-related widgets and plugins related to showcasing your music, live events, and social media connections.
* An easy-going calmness, which was especially appreciated when site changes were required, (which is a part of any creative design process).
* Amazing work ethic, and fast responsiveness to questions.
In summary, if you are a musician looking to build a world-class website with a world-class human being, the best favor you could do for yourself is to work with Ross Barber-Smith and Electric Kiwi.
My infinite thanks, Ross!

Ross from Electric Kiwi has been a dream to work with. He is incredibly talented, professional, enthusiastic and nice and created a beautiful website and EP cover for me. He took onboard everything that I asked for including the type of cover and website I wanted and answered any questions that I had, patiently, and was in touch throughout the whole project. I was over the moon when I saw the results. I would highly recommend Ross to anyone looking for a new website or revamp and for anyone looking for cover artwork. Thank you so much Ross! Looking forward to working with you again.
Ross from EK was incredibly timely and professional, which is huge when you’re building your website and your brand. I couldn’t be happier with the final product and I’ll recommend Electric Kiwi Designs to anybody who asks!

I cannot say enough about Ross and his considerable talents and abilities – both creatively speaking, and in the manner in which he built my site. More than simply hiring someone indifferent to the task, I felt like I had gained a partner in the project. He was constantly curious, engaged, suggestive and endlessly positive. And talented! Nearly all of his suggestions, once illustrated, were improvements upon my previous ideas. I should also mention that he is incredibly patient – I had plenty of “ideas”! Most importantly, I love the finished product. Ross has my absolute highest recommendation.
- Robert Ferraro, The Giving Arts
Thank you so much, it’s been wicked working with you on my website. You’ve done an amazing job!!! Thank you!! Absolutely nothing was a problem and you’ve added so much to perfect it.
Ross has been amazing to work with! Not only did he create exactly the look I wanted with my site, clean, organized, and stylish, but he was VERY responsive to my emails (even though we are in opposite time zones) and very patient as we narrowed down the details. More importantly he is just a super nice guy! Would highly recommend to other musicians needing a site, or anyone else! Thanks!!
