How our clients have expressed their appreciation

Through the years we have received countless testimonials, in fact too many to put on a single page.

So below are a couple of our favourites…


“May I take this opportunity to say thank you very much indeed for the excellent site you have created for me. You clearly understood what I wanted the site to convey and have combined design and functionality to total effect. It’s great!

I would also like to say that, as a client, it was so helpful to work with such a collaborative designer who listened to what I had to say and then had the skill to interpret it. That is a rare quality, I think.

The outcome of this is that you have given me a superb site and confidence in handling my CMS but also have left me in no doubt that you stand ready to offer help over stumbling blocks, if I need it.

Rest assured I will be recommending your services unequivocally.”

“Mark Excell has always been professional, accurate and prompt with his work with us. He has always solved problems easily and in a timely manner. He understands our company needs, his advise and knowledge on web based products is highly appreciated as we continue to grow our online platform with further new products. His advice and guidance has seen our website, www.therecycler.com, rise in the global rankings from around 1,150,000 to 229,000. This is an absolutely incredible statistic to achieve with our limited budget and diverse audience needs. This could not have been achieved without Mark’s knowledge, expertise and guidance..”

Stefanie Unland’s review on yell.com in relation to the CMS website developed for The Recycler.


“Wanting a local business to take on the project of relaunching Riche de fleurs’ website, Marks website stuck out miles from any other website designer with an unusual attention grabbing, very easy and clear website.

After contacting him via e-mail we had an immediate response with honest, realistic prices to work with our tight budget and quick deadline. Mark was very open to suggestions.

He understood clearly the criteria with the kind of updated, colourful yet breath taking website we needed. He understood and had many ideas to keep the site easy to navigate through and to keep the website modern and simple.

With his extensive knowledge and experience he was able to show us how to manage our website and show areas we could improve on.

After several meetings the final website was relaunched. It has been phenomenal the response we have received so soon after the completion of the new website with an already increased bookings of weddings and events.

I can’t thank Mark enough for all the effort he put into this project where it has been an absolute joy and pleasure to work with. Wishing him all the success he deserves.”

Mark, Your assistance with setting up hosting and leading me by the nose in creating a new site was absolutely fantastic. Your expert help is very much appreciated – I would be delighted to recommend your services to anyone with limited coding knowledge who seeks a bespoke website solution. Many thanks!

Creating my website was way less painful than I thought it would be. This was due to the expert workmanship from Mark. It is great to have the knowledge, but a completely different asset to have the ability and skill to walk with someone through the steps necessary to accomplish the task, in this case, my first website.  My limited experience in this area did not matter as Mark fielded all my questions, and didn’t even raise a smirk when some of them must have sounded really amateurish and bordering on daft! He was also very willing to find a way to explain things so that I understood. Mark has accomplished the task professionally, efficiently and within stated times. Much sooner than I expected I find myself  “google-ised” – all thanks to Mark!  He left me in no doubt at all that the creation of the site was in good hands and now the maintenance of it remains in the same trusty hands so all bodes well for the future. Thank you so much
