“When I first met Graham, I had already had one false start with redesigning the Easy Gourmet logo and website. The experience with my previous designer had been a bitter disappointment. Although I’d already paid for a lot of the work, the results were not looking good, so I decided to cut my losses and start again.
This was when I met Graham. He was recommended to me by a friend – though I was still cautious, as I’d found the previous designer through a personal recommendation too. Fortunately, my worries proved entirely unfounded. After just three days on the case, Graham had arrived at the perfect logo, and I realised that this time, Easy Gourmet was going to get a stunning makeover.
Graham went on to build a website, tailor its structure according to my whims, provide all the Facebook, email and other links I needed, and tutor me on how to post news items. He was always quick to respond to any requests, was utterly professional in everything he did, and I have great respect for his visual sense. The end product is absolutely beautiful … I’m 200% happy!
What’s more, the amount Graham charged for his efforts was extremely reasonable. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend him for similar work to anyone else. In fact, I’m already using him for my next project, and I hope to be able to draw on his talents for a long time to come.
So … thank you Graham! Your hard work has given Easy Gourmet a really stylish new start.”

“I worked with Graham on the website for the Mervyn Peake Estate, www.mervynpeake.org. We were both working as freelancers and I just had the various images but he took them and designd and constructed a complicated, thorough and detailed site in record time. The design speaks for itself but Graham’s efficiency and knowledge of what can be achieved with a website was impressive.
Constructive and approachable with people who aren’t quite so au fait, I would recommend him to anyone whether they were beginners or experts.” May 13, 2010
