Happy Clients

Testimonials from some of the wonderful people who MidState Design
has had the distinct honor and privilege to work with (in no particular order).

Dear Corey,

As chair of the Oasis Board of directors, I wanted to take a moment to thank you for the outstanding work you did in redesigning the Oasis website. I found your design to be “clean,” extremely well-organized, and easily navigated. Thank you! And thank you for volunteering your skills. You have provided an extraordinary service to Oasis and those experiencing homelessness and/or food insecurity that we serve. We have long needed a new website as part of our outreach to clients, present and potential funders, and the general public and you have graciously given us just what we needed.

I hope we meet someday so I can thank you in person.

Sincerely on behalf of Oasis,


Rev. Dr. Henry F. French

Oasis Central Minnesota Board Chair, Oasis Central Minnesota

Corey did an outstanding job on my website. He’s not only very talented, but he has a very kind heart. As a small business owner, it matters to me who I work with on a personal level. I was referred to Corey by a mutual friend. I was in a bad spot because my current web provider was dropping services and was dropping all clients within 30 days and also trying to get you to pay an astronomical fee to “transfer” your site to another provider. When I met with him, he told me that I was being ripped off and he could work quick to rebuild my site. I was blown away by his talent, speed, kindness, and compassion! I couldn’t recommended Corey at MidState Design any higher!

Corey is amazing. We had major issue and was told by our hosting company that there was “nothing they could do about it.” We called Corey and he had the issue resolved and our site back up within an hour. His knowledge and responsiveness saved the day and we will def. be using MidState Design again!

The website you created for me is STUNNING. And it is crafted with so much thought to every possible need I don’t yet even know I might have.

Thank you for putting so much time & thought into crafting an incredibly functional and expandable site for me to use as my public face.

I am so grateful for the considerations you had for both my music & literary needs, as well as how you thought through how you wanted me to come across for the people who experience me via my website.

I am also particularly humbled by the time you have taken, & the faith you have displayed in my amateur web design attempts. I have even more appreciation for your level of skill & know-how now that I have played around on the backend a bit.

Corey is very knowledgeable in his field and designed a beautiful site. He was open to my ideas, and most important, he patiently guided me through its operation and continues to do so.

Thank you Corey for assisting this newbie author, who is now published under the pen name Rosemary Vaughn.

I would like to thank Corey at midstatedesign.com for all of his probono work in helping me with this transition and with setting up my new site. His generosity has meant that more resources can go to helping the world of libraries and literacy.

He is a consummate professional.

I was so impressed with Corey of MidState Design in regards to his knowledge of building web sites that after our conversation on the phone I immediately hired him to build my web site. Corey understood exactly what I needed and wanted in my web site, that he had it up and running in a week. My new web site has brought in so many new customers that I had to hire another employee!


Dennis Dillon

Company Owner, Dennis Dillon Pruning

In my work as a marketing strategist and copywriter, I also help clients plan and work with developers to create effective websites that achieve their goals. I have worked with many developers hired by my clients over the years, and I have seen everything from malfeasance (attempted theft and account hacking) to incompetence (sites that were poorly coded and did not function well or consistently) to unreliability (where the developer just dropped off the face of the earth, never finished the project and never refunded the client’s money).

I had the privilege of working with Corey on a WordPress website for a charitable cause recently (we both worked on it pro bono and Corey was kind enough to also provide free hosting for the cause). I found him to be:
– hardworking and diligent (he works long hours every day and delivers on-time, every time)
– very communicative/responsive to questions or problems, and
– enormously helpful as far as providing guidance on the best ways to achieve the desired results on the site and educating me about plugin choices, best practices and possible problems that certain choices could lead to. I thought I knew a lot, but Corey taught me a great deal more.

As part of his regular process, he routinely uses a much higher level of security and better backup protocols than any other developer I have worked with– he raises the bar on security to where it should be on every business website. After seeing security really done right, I have changed the way I now instruct other developers to handle sites for my clients.

I would trust Corey to handle sites for any of my clients, and that’s saying a lot– because of all I have seen, I do not trust easily, especially where my clients’ businesses are concerned. It was a pleasure to work with him, and I hope to work with him again soon!

Midstate Design to the rescue! After multiple retail websites crashed in mid-2012, our company’s web and social media presence had all but disappeared.  The severity of the failures left us shell-shocked, and reluctant to move forward with our social media plans.  Corey Kretsinger put his WordPress and network security expertise at our disposal, with a plan of action to recover our websites, secure our domains, and broaden our presence online.  Corey was professional and fully dedicated to our success.  He went well beyond the original project outline to investigate the cause of the crashes, coordinating with outside vendors and programmers to customize our sites to our needs, and keeping all lines of communication open throughout the process.  In the end, he delivered custom, top-to-bottom solutions under budget and ahead of schedule.  We couldn’t be more thrilled, and can’t wait to start building our online presence once again.  We have already begun plans to expand, and anticipate using Midstate Design again in the near future. A heartfelt “Thank You” for giving our telecom products a safe and beautiful home on the web!

Corey volunteered his time and expertise to help my little boy get a much needed service dog. He will forever be a part of our family and he has the biggest heart.

Good people like Corey don’t come around very often. Consider yourself blessed if you have the chance to have him in your life whether it be personal or professional.
