Emily got in touch to redesign an existing Wordpress website for her accountancy practice, based in Gloucester and London, as the business needed to have a site where they had full control and also an easy to manage system.

Dried Fruit, Nuts & Seeds retailer
I met Yasin on several occasions at a local informal networking event and I got to learn about his business idea of importing dried food products direct from farmers to sell here in the UK. Yasin came back to me some months later to hire me to design an ecommerce website for his business venture. I created a Squarespace website and consulted with him about branding and also marketing to help him prepare to promote his business after the website was launched. Yasin’s passion for his business was clearly evident and the whole process was a joy to work on and I’m delighted for his future prospects in his business. Yasin’s partner, Luna Vu Thi Nguyet, created the excellent brand logo and packaging labels for Limooshopping and is also the designer for the company.

Tyre Centre & garage

Domestic and commercial cleaning business
Pete and Lynn first got in touch when they needed help to create a first website for their Cheltenham based cleaning business.

I've been working with the couple for many years and they really are fantastic clients to work with!
Here is a lovely testimonial from them:
‘We have had been able to get a couple of jobs for my In laws and are in apposition to pick and choose jobs. We're very happy about this. Two of the jobs you got us passed us on to offices next door, so money is very good.
