Brochure Illustration for Manchester City Council

Through the years the idea of collaborating had never really crossed my mind, until a few month ago when he suggested it, so it was […]


"I cannot recommend John enough. The service was exceptional, which for a technophobe was not only essential but also reassuring. All my questions were answered promptly in a way I could understand. The website was exactly how I envisaged with useful guides in order to develop and change the website myself over time. Overall a great service at a competitive price."

Claire Smith, Therapyline.

"As a new business, I can't overstress how important it's been for me to have a great website. John designed a fantastic site for me and I am constantly told by customers that it's the reason they've chosen me. He listened to what I wanted, researched my field and I now have a website that is amongst the best in my industry."

Dom Woodward, Wacky Woody Entertainment
