Eddie Austin fell in love with furniture making in high school, and has honed his craft ever since. 

After working a number of years for another furniture maker, and obtaining a degree in 17th-century period furniture making, Austin decided to open his ownshop. At Eddie Austin Woodworks, Austin designs and creates a wide variety of  beautiful high-end pieces, including his first furniture line, the Rio Series.

Company Story:
Austin knew his business needed a website, and purchased a site to build himself.  It didn’t take long to realize, however, that he needed help. “It ended up being a little tougher than I thought and I couldn’t get the look that I really wanted.”  A mutual friend suggested Jamie Summers-Brown and Bricks Without Straw.

Website and Graphic Services:
Bricks Without Straw became a valuable asset for Austin and his small business.  He found it easy to communicate his vision for his website to Jamie, and was impressed with Jamie’s ability to expand that vision even further.   “He can take your idea and come back with something that is even better than you thought it was going to be.”   Austin credits Jamie’s expertise in technology  with producing an excellent product. “Jamie seems to be on the cutting edge of everything.”
Jamie and his staff contributed more than just computer expertise to the site; their creative and artistic ability was also apparent.  “Jamie has a real talent for selecting colors,” Austin noted, and small touches, such as placing borders around photos, really polished the site.

In addition to the website, Bricks Without Straw was able to offer Austin other business services.  Utilizing their artistic talents, Bricks Without Straw designed and produced quality business cards, as well as 3 X 5 photo cards that Austin is excited to share with potential customers.  “They’re just amazing. . .I always get compliments on them.”  

Reliability:
A website must work, or a business risks losing potential customers.  Perhaps no where is that fact more significant than in small business.  With a steady stream of traffic, from referral sites and social media outlets,  Austin’s website has always run smoothly, never receiving complaints from customers that something doesn’t work.  

Small businesses must keep a close eye on their budgets, as well, which is why Jamie’s business  approach benefits Austin.   “There’s never been any hidden costs; Jamie is pretty straightforward.”

Passion
Of all the strengths that Bricks Without Straw adds to Austin’s online presence, perhaps the greatest is the passion evident in Jamie’s work.  “Jamie is a very passionate person about the things that he does.  It’s not just websites; it’s music, computers, things that.  He really knows his stuff and puts a lot of effort into it.  He’s no different with his customers.”  It’s that passion that takes his client’s websites to the next level.  Speaking to those considering Bricks Without Straw, Austin said, “If you’re looking for something different. . .if you’d like something cutting edge. . .if you’re open to new suggestions, I don’t see why you wouldn’t go with Jamie.”
