Friends of Peabody Lakes is a community organization. We needed a website that would allow us to post our latest events, keep our core members and visitors up to date with the latest news, and post articles, pictures and movies. Neil saw a broadcast on community television we made during our campaign to clean up Crystal Lake where I mentioned that we were looking for someone to help us out with a website.
Neil called the same day the broadcast aired and told me that he appreciated our efforts to preserve these important resources in his community and offered to donate a website, email and hosting to Friends of Peabody Lakes. I met with Neil, a couple of days later, at Universe Design to tell him about the kinds of things we needed the website to do. To my pleasant surprise, Neil already had our new website up and live on the Internet.
I spent the next couple of hours with Neil tweaking the site, setting up email for our core members and learning about how to manage our new Joomla website. All I can say is WOW! Neil delivered our fantastic new website in just 2 days and it is more than we could have ever hoped for.
Neil even provided image galleries for our users to upload there own pictures. There is no doubt in my mind that Neil is a seasoned Internet pro and has the knowledge to deliver websites that get the job done.
We now put our new web address FriendsofPeabodyLakes.com on all of our correspondence and our membership has recently doubled. I truly believe this is a direct result of our great new website designed and hosted by Universe Design. Neil has helped us become a stronger community organization.
He has the ability to conceptualize a concept and turn it into actionable results. He truly becomes a business partner on your project offering advice and ideas that help to improve your original concept. He is fantastic to work with, always willing to put in the extra effort to ensure your website is the best that is could possibly be. Neil Fabbo is great at what he does and his work is a shining example of his talent.
Neil's grasp of Joomla and it's components/modules is extraordinary. His experience and breadth of knowledge (in Photoshop, Dreamweaver, Yoothemes, etc.) made it possible for our vision to become reality. We will be turning to Neil again for both ongoing guidance and maintenance tasks. The icing on this cake is that Neil takes the time to both explain and empower the contractor in all possible areas. We highly recommend Neil.

Neil was our saving grace. We came to him after being completely "had" by another web developer, who left us high and dry and with a site that had been hacked 3 times before going live.
Neil took what we had (a disaster) and turned our vision into a reality. He became invested in our success.
Neil is honest, reliable, available, sharp, dependable, trustworthy, patient. He is a teacher. We wanted to be as self-sufficient as possible and he took the time to educate us (off the clock) and worked hard to empower us so that we would not be 100% dependent on him to do the tasks that HE knew we were capable of doing.
Neil is up-to-speed on new technological developments and always made sure that our site was up-to-date and if upgrades were available and relevant to our site, he would make sure our site was current. He ALWAYS had the integrity of our site top of mind. If we wanted to do something, he would find a way to make it happen (off the clock if he was educating himself). If it wasn't possible and/or if it would jeopardize the site in any way (make upgrades difficult), he wasn't afraid to let us know. Our relationship was a constant conversation with ideas flowing back and forth, always working as a team to solve problems.
Beyond the technical, Neil is an amazing designer. He has created a number of ads for us and nails them every time. This always amazed us, as we have had a lot of experience working with designers.
Neil not only looks out for us but he also thinks about our users, our clients. Neil wants us to succeed because if we succeed, he succeeds.
Neil is a true professional and is invested in his clients. He is a partner to us in ever sense of the word. We are closing this assignment but opening a new one with him for ongoing development and maintenance.
Neil - Thank you. You are truly special
Neil Fabbo is great to work with. His knowledge of the technology is the best I've found so far. I will defintely work with him again. Thanks Neil!

My experience with Neil Fabbo of Universe design was nothing short of fantastic.
Neil's ability to take a concept and turn it into reality is better then anyone I have seen in the business. Working with Neil was more of a Partnership then a vendor/client relationship. He truly takes an interest in your business, which is important when developing a website.
Neil is highly communicative and is available at the drop of hat. I never had to wait for a return phone call of email, day or night. He truly is a class act, with the ability to make anyones idea shine. I fully endorse Neil Fabbo and Universe Design and would highly recommend them to anyone looking to create, refresh or design their website.
Multimedia Business Cards are a great way to reach your prospects with cutting edge professionalism. Universe Design put together a great website in just a couple of days. I couldn't be happier with my new Joomla CMS website. I can add articles, pictures and even videos anytime.
Not only did Neil deliver a great site in record time but he provided the personal training I needed to get going right away. The personal service and custom design Universe created is fantastic. If you have ever considered a website for your business you can't go wrong with Universe Design.
Multimedia Business Cards
When I decided to open an Internet Cafe here in Australia, I knew that we were going need a great website that reflected cutting edge technology we would have in our new store. I searched for a company here in Australia to to the job and discovered that I hadn't budgeted the huge start up costs they were all quoting us. With only a week till our new Internet Cafe opened, I wasn't happy with the solutions any website company I contacted had presented.
Through a mutual friend, I heard about Neil Fabbo at Universe Design and decided to contact him to see if he could help. I was totally blown away by his ideas and eagerness to help me get Players Gaming and Computers on the web. I had never even heard of Joomla but Neil promised that he could customize it to suit our needs perfectly and deliver it in time for our grand opening.
In just a few days Neil contacted me to let me know our new site was all set and gave me our new email information, logins and links to download the user and admin manuals for our new joomla CMS website. I have to say that Universe Design delivered as promised and save us thousands of dollars with no worries.
Since meeting Neil I have learned a lot about marketing over the Internet and his vision for our website at Players was more than I could have dreamed up on my own. I see Neil as an important partner now and wouldn't trust any project that has anything to do with the Internet to any other company.
Thanks Mate! You and Universe Design are fantastic.

I must count among the blessings of 2015 being lucky enough to discover the tremendous value of working with Neil Fabbo.
It's actually difficult to summarize the many strengths Neil brings to an engagement. He cares about the outcome. He brings all his experience, which is both deep and broad. He listens and is not afraid to ask questions or offer constructive alternatives. He has great humanity. Not only does he know Joomla but also he knows how to implement it with an eye to value and iterative growth of website capabilities. He took my skeletal sketch of requirements, worked with me to ensure that each feature was clearly defined, provided tremendous value in the selection of components, went extra miles where need be to get results that were not out of any box, and made the experience one I would not hesitate to repeat. Did I say too that he is honest? We might take this for granted but I can't underline enough how very impressed I was with his character and fairness in billing. A rarity in modern times.
if you are looking for a Joomla web development expert who can also provide strong strong practical web business counsel Neil must be among your top choices.
