I contacted Nicola to discuss the development of a website for what was then just a ‘work in progress’ idea that I had for a new business. Nicola patiently worked with me and designed not only my website but logo too. I was very impressed at how she was able to deliver a website that captured everything about the business that we had discussed.
Quite simply, Nicola is an excellent web designer whose services I will certainly use again and therefore have not hesitation in recommending to others.

Nicola started work on my website 6 months ago and has stuck with me until it went live last week – that’s determination for you. What I really like is it’s ‘MY’ site & I can easily change pictures, update text, generally evolve it to suit my changing business – and I’m a total novice. Behind that, Nicola has developed a solid framework site that is fast and looks great, one of my requirements was it had to be simple – but still it looks nothing like any other site.
Quite frankly, Nicola’s work on this project is the best investment my business made in 2013. She has a keen eye for design as well as being a top notch web developer.

I needed a new web site for my consultancy business. It had to be eye-catching, professional and easy to navigate. Nicola designed a beautiful website which meets all of these objectives. Nicola also designed a new logo for the company, which I am very pleased with. Nicola paid careful attention to the industry sector I work in, the type of business I have and the overall purpose of the web site. The new branding and web site will help drive my business forward. Thank you.

Nicola was a pleasure to work with, she listened carefully to what we wanted whilst giving us the benefit of her technical and marketing skills. This, combined with her extensive knowledge and design flair made the whole experience remarkably easy.

Nicola recently updated and improved my website for holiday accommodation. She produced a site that was very attractive and pleasing to look at. It was easy to use and navigate to find out information. Nicola helped me understand how to use keywords to optimise Google searches and how to edit the site to keep it up to date. Communication was good. Nicola listened to what I wanted from the site, gave me good ideas of her own and persevered with minor teething problems until they were sorted. She was good value for money and I would have no hesitation in recommending her to others.

Nicola completed a booking form for one of my clients, she supplied the files quickly and efficiently. She did an expert job and if I need any code work in the future I will be contacting her straight away.

Already having an established website with a good Google ranking, I needed someone who could update the site whilst retaining the original content and code. Nicola was able to carry out the changes I required whilst adding some interesting features of her own. I found Nicola easy to work with and the cost to be reasonable, I would not hesitate to use your services again and will recommend you where I can, thanks Nicola.

I’m more than happy to endorse your work. You have been a pleasure to work with and I am really pleased with the outcome. Your solution met all the criteria we set out for the site rebuild, and your eye for design added that final finishing touch.
Thank again for your work on this project.

I just wanted to express my thanks for all your hard work in creating my website. It looks fantastic!
I know I kept changing my mind about all sorts of things but I’m so glad you just took it all on board and kept offering your own ideas as well as building it and making it work.
And the cost was pretty reasonable too- I had some quotes that were quite a bit dearer but you have done everything I wanted- and with a smile!
It was a pleasure working with you and I shall definitely pass on your details to any of my colleagues or friends who require a website creating.

I really enjoyed working with Nicola. Communication was flowing between us and I consider it essential when it comes to website design. Creating a website is a process, and in order for it to proceed smoothly you need to co-operate with your designer (being able to have a laugh trying ideas helps as well ..!). Before I decided to join forces with Nicola on my demanding new project, I had had a bad experience and wasted a considerable amount of time working on my website with a big, well-known, national organisation. They could not provide what I needed (nor assess my needs properly),e.g. a form where clients could upload their documents or ‘change the language’ button essential in this line of business for a group of my target clients. Nicola listened and delivered what I wanted, was quick to respond (very important!) and I learnt as we went along. She also made a logo for me by incorporating and polishing my visual concepts.
What is more, she showed me how to amend my website in WordPress – very convenient and time-saving! It is easily done so I do not have to worry I will have to chase Nicola in the future if I need to add or amend something. I can quickly do it myself with a couple of clicks – whether it is a comma missing or whether I fancy adding another image!
Final result: I now have a professional, functional, aesthetically pleasing and fully bi-lingual website my colleagues and clients compliment me on. Diligent perfectionist (as Nicola probably found out), I do not bestow praise easily. So well done and thank you!

I contacted Nicola after hearing about her through a friend who’d also had a website built by her. I had already tried a couple of large web design companies and been scared off by their production line approach to website design.
I met with Nicola to discuss my requirements and she was both professional and efficient in offering her ideas as well as listening to my own requirements. Once she had a basic outline of the site she got started. The thing that impressed me most was Nicolas willingness to involve me at each stage of the build and how the site was built keeping tightly to my instructions. This would only be possible with a bespoke service such as the one Nicola offers.
I needed a site to display my landscape photography. I also sell my prints and photography workshops through the site so it needed to be easy to use and navigate while at the same time displaying my work effectively. Nicola managed to achieve this in excess of my expectations.
The site has been very well received and it is also now ranking at the top for Google search terms which we identified beforehand.
Moving on, little improvements and unforeseen changes have meant that the site has needed some additions to keep up with my changing business and Nicola has been great at tweaking and adding new features as they are needed.
All in all, a fast friendly service with much attention to detail at an affordable price.

Being a new business we wanted to try and create an impact from day one. This brief was given to Nicola along with designing our logo which could be transferred onto our letter heads and business cards.
We think Nicola achieved this, and at a reasonable cost!
In fact we wil be using Nicola’s services again in the near future to update our website.
We have no hesitation in recommending Nicola for any web design work.

Nicola helped developed our sexual health website (http://www.trinitycentre.nhs.uk/)
She was creative, realistic and suggested many ideas to help improve the website design.
October 7, 2012
We had a new website that needed to be developed with a tight budget. Moreover we were limited with size and shape because of the logo and graphics that had already been arrived at. Working within these restrictions, Nicola did us proud and incorporated a number of functionalities very neatly. We’re very happy with the final result.
Great job – thanks very much, Nicola!
