See What My Clients Say About My Services

Sharing Success Stories

I'm very proud of the work that I do while working with my clients. The true measure of success is my clients' satisfaction.

Everyone at King’s College London is in love with the new CSGS website, from the faculty in our department to the higher up deans. It’s a relief to have a web presence that matches the awesome research reputation of our university. We’re honestly really happy to recommend James for web development– he’s very thoughtful, reliable and always tries to match the web design & functionality to one’s mission and KPIs. We’re very grateful to have worked with James and are ready to recommend him ten times over!

Irena Schneider

Assistant Director - Kings College London

James worked incredibly quickly, producing code of a very high standard that was meticulously organised. He was a pleasure to work with. He’s someone I’d strongly recommend for any WordPress build-outs.

James Finlayson

Head of Strategy - Verve Search

It works well for me as I like the fact I am speaking direct to James who is building the site rather than speaking to a junior account manager which you get at many agencies. After the initial build was completed, James is managing our site and helping with a lot of changes we’re doing as we grow.

Jonnie Shearer

Founder - Beast Store

I’ve said this to other people, but James is very smart. He’s not just a developer, he’s good at problem-solving. He can come up with a few solutions and talk them through with me. Some developers I’ve worked with need total direction. I like that James can get on with it without being told exactly what needs to be done, particularly with the more complicated builds.
