Reviewed: JJ Design
Every now and again Graphicline will be providing a review of Companies and Freelancers we do business with. Here is the first of these:
JJ Design, an authorised supplier of Apple Mac systems and support to the professional user.
Based in Blairgowrie, Johannesburg, South Africa, JJ Design is run by its owner John Watson.
JJ Design provides a superlative and personalised service to their clients. From pre-sales, installation to after sales support, it is hard to find fault with their practice.
Our involvement with JJ Design and John began in 2000, when I (Mike Otgaar) and two other colleagues were creating Sentient Publishing. John supplied our first Apple Mac, a G4, and the software we required. In those days Macs were still running OS 9, (not my favourite OS) and our creative colleague made innumerable calls for support to John. These were ALWAYS responded to in a prompt, friendly and highly competent manner (And he’s fees were very reasonable too).
By 2005 OS 10 had been released, and I was keen to upgrade. John however advised me to wait until a second or third release was available. (Most systems suppliers will say yes, buy it now, and gloat over their new bank balance!) John, he prefers to be honest with his clients.
At the end of 2005, we (Sentient Publishing) acquired a Mac G5. Of course the first and only choice of supplier was JJ Design.
So after 10 years of business association, I can only recommend JJ Design to any prospective buyer of Apple Mac for professional use – or anyone else for that matter.
On a scale of one to 10, JJ Design must be given a 10.
Keep up the good work John, many may aspire, few will approach this level.
