My clients love the work I produce

After having 3 full website rebuilds in the space of 4 years from different companies which produced disappointing end results and bad service we knew we had to change the type of company we wanted to attempt our next build. We decided to look for a local freelance developer who we hoped could offer everything we ‘thought’ we needed but also suggest ideas beyond our brief and at the same time give advice how to design a better website, that is when we found Craig.

Needless to say the initial brief for Craig wasn’t an easy one as we were looking to re-launch 13 Football Club Online Stores at the same time, all running off one application. However it must have been fate that we were to find Craig for this project as the platform that he uses to build eCommerce sites had just added this functionality and Craig didn’t shy away from the scale of the task. Working closely with Craig and following his guidance we were able to create our own bespoke theme, which for the first time for us was fully responsive for easy tablet and mobile viewing and each theme could be adjusted for each individual store. Craig also solved many issues where the default system couldn’t accommodate our end goal. By the time we came to launch the sites we had a system in place that far surpassed anything we previously had.

That was 7 years ago, since then the sites have continually been upgraded and themes refreshed with new functions added along the way, always striving to make the sites as good as they can be and keeping up with the fast pace changes and expectation of websites in the current digital era.
