COMMUNICATION THROUGH DESIGN

Testimonials

I am very fortunate in that I have the most fantastic clients, working in a wide range of disciplines all with great success – so many have been with me for several years. Here are some of their reviews:

Bonita Norris : RocUp Holidays

Max was brilliant at comms from the moment I made contact. He mostly never took more than a few minutes to answer any of my emails. This was fantastic as we could always rely on him to deal with an issue as soon as it cropped up. We are also total tech novices and Max explained everything really well. His constant support made the whole process (mostly) stress free.

Max was very creative and bought some amazing design ideas to us, which have made up the foundations of our brand- for instance the colour schemes on the site and the way the site flows.

This is the first time I’ve ever needed to have a website and I have some ideas in my head but no idea about what was possible or even what my ideas would look like in real life. Max was incredibly patient, coming up with lots of options and in that process I really discovered what I wanted the site to look like. He took our sketchy ideas and built an amazing, functioning website to represent our business. We couldn’t have asked for more.

We feel incredibly lucky to have found Max and cannot believe how our site has turned out. It’s just so much better than what we expected. It’s really helped us secure business and everyone we speak to about our new business says how impressed they are with our site.

I would highly recommend Max!

Eve Jones : Eve Copper Fashion

Finding someone to give my Fashion Design Website an elegant, yet unobtrusive edge was looking a little tricky in Devon, until I stumbled upon the Pig Farmer.

I’m a complete Techno-tard with no idea how or what I wanted from my website, and was under a time constraint to get something together for the launch of my new collection. Luckily my lack of Industry terms (refering to icons as squiggly thingies) did not phase Max, who took time to understand what I was looking for, and focus my ideas in to a practical vision. He also used his considerable expertise in the area to create something that would work on touch screens (extremely important in retail) and something I had not even considered.

This vision was developed really quickly, with a significant amount of hand holding, and free insight to web marketing from launch. Artistically speaking I think I only contributed the accent colour, the rest was perfect from inception.
I have nothing but praise for every aspect of the Pig Farmers work. The final outcome exceeds all my expectations.The website is stylish, offering an elegant backdrop which makes my designs look incredible. It’s intuitive, easy to navigate, and super modern. I’ve had so much positive feedback for the site, and to say that it has transformed my business would be putting it lightly.

Jana Khayat : The Ash Stud

We have a small stud in North Devon breeding very good quality Show jumpers with world class bloodlines. I was looking for a web designer who would understand what we are trying to achieve and who could produce a beautiful website quite unlike others in the industry . I don’t think Max knew a great deal about horses before he started on this project but he grasped the brief immediately and has designed a site which has generated an enormous amount of positive feedback. He was a joy to work with and though we only met face to face once, he was always at the end of the phone line and without any problems or misunderstandings has produced something quite special for us. Max continues to manage the site for us updating it approximately every 3 months. Thank you Max!

David Dann : The Car Concierge

Wow, A first class looking site, Very impressed with the colours, navigation is easy with a fluid feel to it. the most impressive part is every aspect of the planning brief has been achieved and surpassed!

Kept informed very well. I am totally happy with all aspects from start to finish.

Carol Alexander-Price : ITDA HQ

Technical Diving is a fairly specialist area and we had very specific ideas for the design of our website. Max (Pig Farmer Designs) was able to lift our ideas and produce a website that reflected exactly what we had asked for. He communicated with us throughout the process and fortunately for me it was all very jargon free. Although there have been a couple of complications, they were dealt with quickly and effectively. We are really happy with the final outcome, we have a modern, slick, no nonsense website which is perfect for our needs. Thanks Max

David Breen : Triplekite Ltd

Firstly i would like to say how delighted i am with the way my website has turned out. It regularly gets comments as to its design being effective, on brand and cleanly simple yet striking…. It is everything i had dreamt up and more. Working with Max was straightforward and organised. There were no dramas, total flexibility. Creativity was high, suggestions and being led by him was welcomed and forthcoming. all in all a good experience at a sensible, value for money price. I have no hesitation, and have already many times, in recommending Max.

Steve Cockram : Activ8 Training

Having a very specific market to hit in terms of web promotions, I needed a site that would look professionl but also which was easy to navigate and informative. The design of my website has helped me to feel confident in the service I am delivering and the input I am able to have is essential. I am very pleased with the layout of my website and would reccommend The Pig Farmer Designs for sure.

Hannah Nobbs : Partridge Farm Meats

John Maxwell from Pig Farmer Designs is an absolute star!! From start to finish he has been incredibly supportive and achieved everything we wanted for our website and more! He is very professional and prompt and has given us 1st star service. I was able to put my complete trust in him.

We are extremely happy with our new site, and have had so many lovely positive comments from our customers.

I would thoroughly recommend John Maxwell from The Pig Farmer Designs any-day for his conscientious work ethic, friendly advice & help he has given us. No job is too big or too small.

He communicates well, kept us constantly informed of how the website build was going answered any queries we had straight away & is always very supportive on the phone and has also been out to visit us on a few occasions.

James Pryce Tractors Ltd

I have been particularly impressed with the value for money offered by the Pig Farmer. We are only a small company with limited requirements and the product offered was delivered on time at a good price.

Tracy Morgan

I am very impressed with everything about this company. This is the first time I have had a website and the whole process has been completely painless. I am very pleased with the end result. I had an idea and before I knew it I had a website. Extremely good value for money.

Amanda Woodward

Very helpful and informative for a complete ludite like me!. Max came up with lots of ideas for me to consider and listened/responded well to my decisions. He always contacted me when promised and the website was ready on time. A thoroughly rewarding experience. I am extremely pleased with my website and have no hesitation in recommending The Pig Farmer to others.

Andrew Doulton : Lock and Leave Ltd

An excellent value for money Devon company. Our website was turned around in very quick time and to our satisfaction. The Pig Farmer Designs have been thoroughly efficient from day one. Even on the rare occasion that something has gone wrong with my website they have always been on the case immediately to rectify it. I am really pleased I found them and will continue to use and recommend them to others.

Michael Blake : Bespoke Installations SW Ltd

Excellent design with good interpretation of ideas and creation of content. Always attentive with excellent customer service. Highly recommended!

Tjeerd Hendel-Blackford : HB Fine Furniture

We were keen to have a local company working for us to improve and enhance our existing website. After trawling through a few dozen portfolios the choice was made very easy by the fact that so many companies just seem to churn out standardised templates, with just the text being different from one site to the next. This is where The Pig Farmer Designs stands out from the crowd. His websites ooze quality and individuality. The feel of a website is so important as it is increasingly becoming the first port of call of new and potential clients. The use of images and the overall design of his websites give a sense of style that lets pictures do the talking. Having worked closely with The Pig Farmer Designs to develop our site we were very impressed with the service provided. All questions were answered quickly (often within a few hours), and we were able to pester him incessantly with minor comments and alterations. The result is a website which we hope will continue to expand, looks great and most importantly, shows off our work to potential clients.

Devon Furniture Makers

Max’s customer service is second to none (often instantaneous). His eye for design makes him stand out from the crowd and all the Members of the Association have expressed a great deal of satisfaction with the site he has produced. How he put up with 15 people trying to have their say on every pixel, I will never know. Thanks Max for an excellent job well done.

Dean Edwards

A pleasure to do business with, I am a big fan of people who are not afraid to go the extra yard to get the job done ahead of schedule. I would recommend this company to anyone.

Fiona Crawford

The Pig Farmer Designs have been thoroughly efficient from day one. Even on the rare occassion that something has gone wrong with my website they have always been on the case immediatly to rectify it. I am really pleased I found them and will continue to use and recommend them to others.

Alison Jones : The Horse Place

Max spent time with us before starting the design to find out exactly what we were marketing and how we wanted to go about it. He then referred back to us on several occasions as he developed the site to check that we were happy with the look. We wanted a site that would be easy to update and manage ourselves and Max has built in calendars and links to social networking sites which we were not aware would be possible to keep the site constantly refreshed. Before going live we spent a few hours with Max learning how to update the text, add photos and videos and as promised he has been available when needed to help if we made any mistakes.
