Michael:

I was asked what made me decide to get into graphic design.
My Answer: I love art and all things creative... whether it's a sketch, a painting, vector art, photography or literature. I'm also a color junkie and will stop for every beautiful sunset, rainbow, changing of the leaves, or a little blue tailed lizard hanging out on my front porch. I really dig figuring out how things work and how to make them better. I have a deep thirst to learn, better myself and improve my skills. With that said, I couldn't think of a job I'm better suited for, nor love more... everyday is a creative blast of imagination, color, adventure and wonder.

Personal Note:
Serving in the military gave me the self confidence to believe in myself and that I could achieve anything I set out to accomplish. I learned discipline, organization and attention to detail, all of which I have applied to my life and my business. I'm proud of my time in the military, time in service to our country and honored to be among those who are serving and have served our Great Nation.

Testimonials

  • Forever grateful to have found a gem

    Michael at Kaleidoscopic Inc. is amazing!!! From beginning to end, he was pleasant, polite, professional, timely and extremely helpful. He even gave me some tips on how to make a few changes myself which is unusual. I definitely will utilize this company again for future projects, and I've recommended them to family, friends and colleagues. I'm forever grateful to have found a gem, right here in the community.

  • Wholeheartedly endorse

    The team at Kaleidoscopic took time to listen to what we wanted in our website and had great suggestions that we didn't even think about. They included many extras including google map attached to posts when an address is included in a posting. One of the great things is that we have the ability to alter our website when needed. Many of the website development companies that we interviewed only provided a static website and we needed to contact them for even minor changes. Not being a web developer, I have also appreciated the training that was included so we could make changes with their web development tool,

    I expected to have a website handed to us and we would have to muddle through any issues or changes that we needed to make. Conversely, Mike has continued to be available and will often call or stop by and tell me that he had looked at the website and suggested a specific change that we could make so that the website would look better, have better SEO, or load more quickly. I have recommended Kaleidoscopic to other colleagues and wholeheartedly endorse them.

  • Delivered Outstanding Service

    For anyone looking to develop a website for their business, I recommend without reservation Michael Habenicht of Kaleidoscope, Inc. He took the website I had and totally reworked it keeping only the elements I requested. He and his team are very knowledgeable, patient, and customer focused and delivered outstanding service. I look forward to working with him again when I can add some of the additional "bells and whistles" to the site that we discussed once the business grows.

  • Attractive, Interactive Website

    The City of Mount Holly, NC wanted to develop a new, interactive, useful and highly attractive website because our old website had gotten quite stale. After an exhaustive search of local website developers, I was fortunate enough to find Kaleidoscopic, Inc., and I quickly arranged a meeting with Mike Habenicht. After negotiating a contract and getting a clear idea of what the City wanted its website to look like, Mike and his staff were excellent throughout the development and launch project. I do not think we could have chosen a better company for our website rebranding. Kaleidoscopic's staff were very patient throughout the entire process. Mr. Habenicht constantly kept us updated as we were preparing to go live. The City has received nothing but positive comments on our new website, and our citizens and visitors now have an excellent information resource, which is only a click away. I would highly recommend Kaleidoscopic for your website needs. There are several towns and organizations that have been so impressed with Mount Holly's website that I constantly hear, "I need to get the name of your website developer!"

  • Amazing

    As an owner of a brand and marketing agency, we have worked with Michael Habenicht of Kaleidoscopic, Inc. on several website and marketing projects. Michael is simply the best I have ever worked with. In fact, our last project we worked with Michael on, he nailed it so well, we only had one very, very small tweak that took a couple minutes to change. That's was amazing. I can't recommend Michael strongly enough to partner with.
