Testimonials

Allen and Marc were awesome to work with! They started by coming to our office, sitting down and listening to our vision and what we wanted to accomplish. We went through several layers of editing and adjustments- Marc & Allen were both open to suggestion and feedback from us. We were looking for something unique, modern and attractive for our website- along with a backend that was easier to operate. We got what we wanted- and our clients love our new site!

We worked with Bluefire Interactive on two major projects. Bluefire developed and launched both our website and web application successfully. The keys to success for us was that they came in right on budget and time, but more importantly delivered a high quality product.

We have a long history partnering with Allen and his team on OFT deliverables for our clients, Cisco and Seattle City Light. Bluefire is always responsive and has a great eye for detail, which as a designer is critical.
