    Steven Smith
  • Eps has always been a great guy to have in the crew and gets along great with everyone. I remember well a design I asked him to do on behalf of a client for the new MetroDining bar and restaurant guide that Metropolis debuted in early 2011, and he took the ball and ran with it in an extremely short time period and came up with something that pleased the client quite well. He's a great guy who I hope to work with again in the future in some capacity some day.

    Ryan Layman
  • Eps Tuibenau is a quality designer that seemed read my mind and take my thoughts further during the AtomJobs.com project, providing me with high quality designs that have continuously earned accolades throughout my network. Eps is friendly, flexible, reliable, and gets things done within extremely difficult time constraints. I would highly recommend Eps for any web or print design needs a company could possibly have.
