I was referred to Claire by another very happy customer and myself and my team are absolutely over the moon with the end result of our new and completely overhauled company website.
Claire was a complete one-stop shop managing the design, content editing, photography and after-sale training in content management. Her passion and genuine care for the task at hand is above and beyond, not to mention her patience in dealing with some less creative individuals (i.e me).
She is a real joy to work with, amazing at what she does, great value and delivers on time. That is all you need to know.
Geoffrey Dunnett - Orbital Group, London
As a creative agency we rely heavily on partnerships with web developers and have worked with many. There are few that compare to the service and delivery that Design Counsel has provided on so many projects.
It is such a joy to work with a proactive, responsive and genuinely engaged person.
The ideas never stop and just when you think you've exhausted all possible enthusiasm, more is gladly given.
Jacqueline Watson - Et Collective
Claire is a powerhouse! She did so much more than design a beautiful website for me; she also helped me strategise content, suggested techniques to drive traffic, and created a website that really delivered results.
Ute Junker - Luxury Travel & Lifestyle Writer
Claire from Design Counsel is in one word INCREDIBLE. I absolutely love working with her and have worked with her on several projects now over the past 5 years, including my new speaker website and new branding.
She listens carefully to your thoughts and goals and just kicks goals every time. Her design and web development skills are next level and top-notch. I am very picky but she always just “gets it” and produces gorgeous, smart, clever and SEO friendly work. If you are looking for awesome, stop right here.
Karen Maher - SmartCulture
It’s always a pleasure to work with Claire. Her industry knowledge and expertise coupled with her willingness and ability to share that experience means you, as a customer, get a lot more value than traditional digital services.
You can tell immediately that Claire loves what she does and she’s very good at it. I’d have no hesitation recommending her services to others – in fact, I already have.
