This is what some of our clients have to say about our work.

I have been Austin's client for over 6 years since 2015 and he never disappoints. Austin is very prompt and professional in his approach and delivers completed projects in a timely manner. Austin maintains constant communication throughout the process to keep you updated on the progress of the work and the final product is always of an excellent standard. He has worked on my websites and logos and I am very pleased with the results. I highly recommend Austin for all your design work and for an excellent customer service experience.

UNDP Malawi has contracted Austin Madinga for a number of editorial design projects. I personally worked with him on three of those projects. He is a good communicator and promptly responded to design changes and requests. The projects he worked on have been a success due to Austin's timely delivery according to set milestones.

We engaged Austin Madinga to design a new website for Gender and Justice Unit. The project was completed on schedule and has proved to be successful. The website is a valuable resource for our partners and stakeholders. Together with our other social platforms, the website enables us to effectively engage with the public.

Tilitonse Foundation has been engaging Austin Madinga under Project4 since 2018. Prior to that, Austin has also provided services to the now defunct Tilitonse Programme that run from 2011 to 2017. In this period, Austin has proven to be reliable and professional. He has supported the Tilitonse Foundation to design and develop the Foundation’s website, and after that he has also supported its management. He has supported the Foundation to manage its social media platforms such as Facebook and Twitter accounts. Austin under Project4 has also supported the Foundation in the design of its quarterly e-newsletter.

In all these tasks, he has delivered with professionalism, used his expertise well by engaging the Foundation and impart knowledge on website and social media platform management. Austin is an open and forthcoming professional who is willing to work beyond limits to achieve a goal. I would recommend him and his services to any other institutions because he does not disappoint and he delivers high quality work.

We engaged Project4 to design the logo, website and all the branding materials for the Growth Accelerator Entrepreneurship Challenge. We have found their service to be creative, timely and accurate. Their creativity have helped us develop a quality brand that resonates well with our partners and the target audience. The logo is very simple and easy to stick, the website is sleek and responsive, does exactly what we wanted it to do.
Vincent Kumwenda
Project Lead at Growth Accelerator Malawi
Austin is a very thorough and down-to-detail brand identity designer. He is very skilful in graphically interpreting client’s branding requirements and aspirations. He successfully completed two logo design projects for AHL Group Ltd and one of its subsidiary companies, AHL Commodities Exchange Limited (AHCX). As someone who led the projects, I am extremely happy that I worked with Austin Madinga because the final products were terrific.

Mount Sinai International School launched our completely revamped website in the last Academic year and we couldn't be any happier with the way the website turned out, and our experience with Mr. Austin Madinga. He took our old website with outdated graphics, fonts, etc., and transformed it into a modern and incredibly attractive site. When we first met to discuss the project, I was immediately impressed with how easy he is to communicate with— he listened and spent ample time understanding our School vision and message to make sure that the School website layout was appropriate and aesthetically pleasing. From the first meeting as a School we felt very confident and comfortable that Austin understood and could produce what we envisioned. Even post-launch, Austin has continued to be helpful and interactive, making it easy to solve any issues quickly and resolutely.We are so appreciative of his creative efforts.

Daphne Kasambala
Director at Sapellé
"I engaged Austin as a Consultant to manage the online/digital presence for my coaching practice that entailed development of a website and newsletter designing among many other things. From the outset, he exhibited high standards of professionalism, generated high-value solutions and walked me through the so many complex areas regarding digital information and management that I wasn’t familiar with. He consistently followed through his project commitments and delivered it in time with no hiccups at all. He remains my steady and solid ‘go to person’ on all ICT related issues concerning my business!"

Founder & CEO at Women’s Leadership Footprint
"It was a pleasure for us to work with Mr. Madinga who proved to be very client orientated, integrating our numerous requests for changes and suggestions in a creative manner into our website. Not only did he handle himself perfectly in the development process, he was also even more supportive during the launch of the same."
Dr. Dieter Koecher
Health Sector Coordinator at Malawi - German Technical Co-operation
I am a pleased client of Project4 Digital Design. They designed and developed the website project for St Andrew’s International High School (SAIntS). It’s been a pleasure to work with Project4 and especially with Austin. The project was handled perfectly from the start and he has been very supportive at all project stages and maintenance to date. I therefore recommend Project4 for any digital design work, specifically web design and development projects.
