We could keep telling you how good we think we are, but why not see what our clients say...
"In setting up TheSportsOsteo we needed a website that would create a big impact in a tough market. Squidge Inc took our (very specific) brief and created a site that far exceeded our expectations. They listened, came up with great suggestions, were always asking for our feedback and offered clear, simple explanations throughout it's development without making you feel bamboozled by their technical superiority!
No stress, no fuss, just great people doing a great job."
Marvin Wratten, Sports Osteopath, TheSportsOsteo
"We originally approached Squidge Inc after a referral from a trusted friend. We had a business plan in embryonic stages and the brief for Squidge Inc was extremely vague and conceptual. Whilst my business partner and I both have experience of working on online media products, it was a very new experience to be spending our own money on developing a website. What we appreciated most about working with David was his honesty and pragmatism. He has never shied away from telling us when we simply cannot afford certain upgrades, and invariably manages to offer solutions which do fall within our limited budget. Nearly a year down the line and David has become an invaluable member of the BathTapped team."
Tom Gillett, Founder, BathTapped
"Our Charity needed a brand and an effective on-line presence to reach its beneficiary base in Westminster. After detailed initial discussions Squidge presented an impressive jargon-free proposal which showed an instinctive understanding of our needs. We had a very strong perception of how our site should look and David's first design hit the nail on the head. Add in a superb logo from nielsdesign and the project was up and running.
Each stage was achieved with the minimum of fuss and the only delays were caused by ourselves trying to write copy fast enough to keep up with the design work. We are delighted with the site and would like to thank Squidge and nielsdesign for not only making the whole process a thoroughly enjoyable experience but also for exceeding our expectations."
Keith Rea, Chief Executive, Westminster Amalgamated Charity
"I worked with David, both at the BBC and directly with his own company, on a number of projects which involved the redesign and relaunch of significant existing BBC sites such as Food, Gardening and Health. The brief for these projects was to modernise the sites' interfaces while maintaining URL structures to preserve SEO and incoming links.
This was a tricky process which required having numerous balls in the air, and David always navigated through the complexity with organisation, humour, a can-do approach and a clever problem-solving attitude. He is very much a safe pair of production hands, with a rare combination of tech savvy and editorial know-how. I'd very much recommend him for any online build project."
Lloyd Shepherd, Head of Multiplatform Products, BBC Vision
"I just wanted to thank you for my fantastic site. I've had so much positive feedback and I'm really pleased with it. I can't believe how efficiently and quickly you put it all together, and I really appreciated the time you took to take me through things and explain the details to me in layman terms. Your ideas definitely worked and I'm so grateful for your input. I will of course be recommending you left right and centre from now on!"
Kayte Cable, Founder, The Brilliant English Company
"Squidge Inc really understood my needs and requirements. As a small business David was great at giving me options and ideas for the site, and for developments in the future. Davids professionalism makes jobs clear and efficient and with regular reviews he makes it easy to develop the site at my own speed, as my business changes and grows. It has been a really positive experience working with Squidge Inc."
Siân Matthews, Metalwork Designer
"When creating a web-based solution you need a developer who grasps the essence of your concept and then adds their own creativity. David has done this perfectly with our village web site www.naphill.org.uk. As a rural community we needed something that looked and felt traditional but at the same time used the latest technology. It had to be informative, easy to navigate and simple to maintain. We wanted it to compliment and not threaten our local magazine, giving the community faster access to a greater range of current information and news. We also wanted to give local people a chance to advertise their products and services.
David produced an excellent design specification which included features such as a calendar of village events and a news feed which we keep regularly updated. He made us consider aspects such as accessibility and security. His experience was invaluable in recommending what would work well for us and what would be impractical to maintain.
Our finished site is better than I ever imagined it would be. Simple, clean, professional and with cross links to each area so that any information is only a couple of clicks away. The community has responded really well so far and I can't wait to get the next phase underway."
Judy Whitehouse, Editor, Naphill & Walter's Ash Gazette
"The Gardening Squad needed an online presence and Squidge Inc took up the challenge. David and his team developed and designed a fantastic website which fulfilled all of our criteria and exceeded our expectations. The whole process was made simple and efficient, and best of all the website is now paying for itself."
Harry Granville, MD of The Gardening Squad
"Over the years, I've worked many times with Squidge Inc on a variety of excellent projects. During this time, the attention to detail, forethought, alertness to blockers and threats has been first class. If I was to have to sum up their work in a few words, I'd say, 'You can throw whatever you want at them (including the kitchen sink) and before you know it the project is done (as well as the washing up!)'."
Paul Goodenough, MD of Aerian Studios
