Chris Cowans Design Lead Airbnb

While working on a new website for Airbnb, I had the pleasure of collaborating with the talented team at Pepper Square to code the site. They worked around the clock for us and were eager to make the site as pixel perfect as possible.They worked quickly and were very accommodating with any changes we needed to make along the way, no matter how big or small.

I would happily work with them again down the road and highly recommend them if you have any coding needs. They are one of the nicest and most ambitious groups of people you’ll meet.

Challenges
