Richard not only helped me create a great website but has been able to help me edit material which is so important as business changes so quickly and delays need to be avoided
Many thanks to Richard for creating my website – www.emfosbakery.co.uk. Such a quick turnaround and eye for detail – very creative ideas throughout. I’m very happy with the end result and have received so much positive feedback from customers, friends etc. Many thanks again.
Richard was recommended to me through a personal contact to design a logo for me and I have to say he met and exceeded all my expectations. With very little brief he came up with some great ideas, kept me informed all the way through, worked at all hours to get things done and came up with a brilliant logo! And at a very reasonable price. What else could I want?! Richard is a very talented individual and I will certainly be using him again in the future.

Richard has designed and constructed our wedding website for our upcoming wedding. The standard of the website is well above my expectations and we are incredibly happy with the results. Communicating with Richard has been easy and he took on board any points or details that we would like to be incorporated into the website and made them a reality, Richard also added personal touches which reflect both of us making the website unique. Overall we are incredibly happy with Richard and his high quality of work – we would highly recommend him to anyone wanting a website designed.
