What Our Clients Say About Us

Frank Smith - A New Day Festival
We’ve been working with Rich for nearly a year now and are really pleased with the website he’s created for us.
He instinctively knows what we’re looking for and transforms our ideas into reality very quickly.
He’s also very pro-active in making suggestions to improve the look and feel of the website
that we hadn’t thought of which allows the user to navigate the site seamlessly.
Mark Potts - Nusakan Radio
Coming from both technical and creative backgrounds, I'm probably a coder's worst nightmare.
However, with Rich, I have no problems whatsoever. I find his methodology very logical and sensible,
and his coding skills are impressive, to say the least.
He's a very reasonable guy to do business with and, not only does his work have to satisfy me,
it has to be something he is proud of, too; a philosophy that I wish more modern businesses followed.
Sharon Keevins - Kangaroo Design & Marketing
Optik Web Creative undertake many websites for us and have always been very supportive,
informative and approachable which is a rare skill in this area of work.
We are very happy with their service for us.
Paul Kendrick - Heavy Metal Racing
Just wanted to drop you an email and say how happy i am with the work you have done for my race team.
HeavyMetalRacing.co.uk looks fresh, up to date and the layout is really nice to browse through and read.
I know it will be the envy of the British Superkart Championship in 2017!
Having known you a few years now, you continue to pleasantly surprise me with the speed and accuracy of your work.
Your attitude to website design is a boon to your industry and a credit to your company.
I look forward to continuing our working relationship and hope to see you at the race track for a Heavy Metal Racing brew very soon!
