“ I'd been in touch with Sam since 2015 when I asked him for a quote for a previous employers website, although that didn't go ahead at that time, I later became independent and was in the process of building up my business. I really liked Sam & Trayana's work and portfolio of client websites, so I had already made my decision to work with them, even before my business vision for a new website was ready. I am very thankful to Sam for his expert advice and guiding support as writing all the content from scratch was also a learning curve for me too. Sam and Trayana are both great communicators and return emails and calls quickly, nothing appears to be too much trouble. Sam & Trayana become part of your business, fulfilling the webteam function, and bringing your vision to a reality on screen, I'm really pleased with my new business website, functionality and features and have already received some excellent feedback from customers and friends, including one who also wants a new website. 5* for a great website designer. ”

I am thrilled and feel excited with what he has produced for me and very reasonably priced too. He has done exactly what it said on the tin, and then some. Extremely professional, polite and the patience of a saint. I would recommend Sam to my nearest and dearest, I have that much confidence in him. Thanks Sam - Lora one very happy customer. ”
–Lora Fairclough, Lora Fairclough Golf
“ Sam has created 3 websites for companies I have been involved in, and he must have done at least 5 for friends I have recommended him to, ranging from small businesses up to large corporate companies who trade internationally. Having worked with other web designers for many years prior to finding Sam I can safely say you wont find anyone better. He is highly creative, motivated and an all round good guy offering outstanding websites. I could not recommend him enough no matter what size your project. ”
–Ben Leach, IcedGecko
“ Sam is a fantastic website designer. I was having problems with my previous website designer so I moved to Sam: who is a breath of fresh air! I was having some technical issues and Sam was on the phone to me for over an hour at 9pm at night! His work is also very fast and very good, all at a very reasonable price. I could not recommend Sam highly enough and have told all of my friends about him. I would give 10 stars but 5 was the highest! ”
–Adam Hill, Notorious Fashion
“ I can not recommend Sam highly enough, the service you get from the very start through to after care is AMAZING. Nothing is too much trouble for Sam and the team, they take your ideas and add a professional touch to produce a wonderful site that is bespoke to your business. The SEO work is second to none and the price of the work is very very competitive in fact PLEASE Don't be put off when you compare Sam's cost effective quotes to others who will give you a crazy high price then try to bamboozle you with technical jargon to justify such silly prices. You get none of that here just a good price excellent service and a friendly team. Kevin ”
