One of the most difficult things for many comedians is the monolithic task of self-promotion. No matter how accomplished the performer may be onstage, the challenge of marketing – especially online – remains onerous and, subsequently, a schizoid result often manifests itself: professional-level talent crudely juxtaposed against an unprofessional web design. I shudder to think of what my website looked like before Christina blessed it with her unique artistry. The day she sent me a preliminary mockup of her proposed redesign of willfranken.com, I had one pervasive and grateful thought. In one fell swoop, she had elevated my online presence from amateur to professional and thus, a disturbing dichotomy was finally obliterated. Somehow she had captured my essence in a way that would have continually remained elusive to me. And as I gazed with fascination at the intricate artwork and ran through the convenient features on the new page, I had the apprehension that I was someone else – looking at and learning about a performer I was feeling silly for not having seen or known about already; a professional. Thanks, DropSoul!

Christina with DropSoul.com has created a website to perfectly suite the needs of our busy OB/GYN practice. Within a few weeks of “going live” we went to the top of the search engines. Her understanding of the way the system works has really improved our visibility on the internet. She knows how to take volumes of information and present it in a logical and pleasant way. Since launching in June 2007, we have had close to 8,000 visitors as of November, 2007 — which simply amazes me. Christina added Google analytics so that we can track where our visitors are coming from and how long they stay on our site, along with other useful information. I had a patient yesterday who said she found me on the internet and that she really liked the website.
We love our new website — it has exceeded our expectations.

I can honestly say I’ve not worked with anyone more creative and talented in web design than Christina. She turned my crappy Cafepress site into a dandy-looking money maker, and the site she built for my appearance in Florida (and my 2007 Tour) is even cooler than my own Bizarro site. I can’t thank her enough.
— Dan Piraro, Nationally Syndicated Cartoonist of Bizarro
Working with Christina has been an extremely positive experience. The end result has exceeded our expectations on every level. Our new website looks amazing and much care was taken down to the smallest detail. Having a graphic design background myself, Christina's creativity and attention to detail were key to meeting our vision. We look forward to working with dropSoul for all of our future website needs.

Rarely have I had the opportunity to meet or work with someone as professional, organized or creative as Christina. The speed in which she finished my website, the aesthetic look and feel of the website and her expertise in this field exceeded my expectations beyond what I could have ever imagined! Those who know me, know that I am very picky, so I was suprised to be 150% satisfied with the outcome. Love, love love it! Thank you for everything!!!!!

Thank you!!! The website is beautiful — we've received many compliments on it, especially how easy it is to use.
— Alice Sutton, Bamboo Apartments on Anna Maria Island
It takes my breath away...it is so beautiful! I absolutely love, love, *love* the website — I have been looking at it almost incessantly! You have captured 'me' in a way I didn't think anyone could. It looks exquisitely artistic, meaningful, and professional. I am delighted beyond words! Again, I am so delighted, Christina, I'm jumping up and down!

Thank you again for everything, the website looks so good I could cry!!! You're the best.

Going in, web site designers are a
Pig in the Poke long-shot at best. Until you have seen what they can produce, they are no better than your erstwhile, well-meaning legal advocate telling you that "you've a case". Needless to say, I have been pleased with the web designer for my admiralty and maritime practice here in the State of Florida, www.MaritimeLegalCounsel.com.
— Thomas M. Schodowski, Attorney at Law and Proctor in Admiralty
I opened up the website — it is so beautiful, I cried! I am serious — wow!!! You put so much work into it ... it is phenomenal!!!! I love what you did with the sailboat picture, and how the sand blends into the background of the page, and how the photo gallery works, and how the google map works and and and!!! It’s a lot to absorb, and I know I haven’t found all the treasures you’ve buried.
Mom and I are so grateful!! “Thank you” seems so inadequate to cover this — but THANK YOU!!!

Creative… innovative… hardworking… dedicated… a thinker…ethical… reliable… all of these words come to mind when asked to describe Christina Arasmo of DropSoul. As a graphic designer, I was searching for a web designer with not only technical skill, but also a strong understanding of graphic design.
Christina’s experience working in the graphic design industry coupled with her technical skill allows her to have a unique perspective. She is able to produce a web presence that is fast, user friendly, and beautiful.
Christina’s ability to listen to her clients and help them reach their target market is truly a gift. I have a firm belief that Christina’s talents will help my growing business send a positive, professional message to potential clients. She was able to help provide a “facelift” to not only my businesses website but also to my Cafepress site. I gave her very limited direction regarding my Cafepress site and I am still amazed that she not only captured my vision, but improved upon it.
Her upfront communication skills are very valuable. She is honest about her time constraints and always provides a realistic timetable for project completion. As a result, she often is able to finish a project ahead of schedule.
One would think that her service would come at price that a small, growing business could not afford. However, I believe that her value system is such that she wants to help others succeed and thus charges rates that are very reasonable.
I would high recommend Christina Arasmo and DropSoul to any growing business. I feel that her skills and reliability are unparalleled.

I have worked on projects with Christina for many years now. She is my Go-2 person for all things web related. As a graphic designer who has NOT gotten into designing websites, it’s great for me to have someone I can call on to deliver a superb job for my clients. Christina is supremely honest, clearly creative, and a dream to work with. And...she’s really really smart.
