AWD Testimonials - Our Customers
Fun-Kee-Music
From the moment I walked into the AWD offices in Hertford I knew that Richard and his team would be able to design the website that had been my ‘pipe-dream’ for years.

At our initial meeting Richard listened carefully to my visions and requirements (offering me well considered advice honed from years of experience in the business) and from the moment I signed the contract nothing was ever too much trouble for Richard, Ollie and Gareth. Their patience, professionalism and creativity produced a website that is vibrant, eye-catching and simple to use. In short my vision was fulfilled completely.

If you want an amazing website designed by an efficient, friendly and talented team then AWD is the company for you. You will not be disappointed!

Season Selector
Richard and Gareth have developed a really great, easy to use online system which allows people playing Season Selector to quickly make their predictions by simply dragging and dropping each of the Premiership teams into the players predicted finishing position.

Most importantly for me, the system also works out all of the points (which used to take me ages) and displays the immediately.

Players can also interact with the website by making comments on the ‘Topic of the Week’, which in previous years has led to some really good banter, particularly amongst the supporters of opposing teams!

I was recommended Advanced Web Designs by a friend who uses them for his website. I was a little anxious at first as I don’t really understand technology that much, but everyone I dealt with at every stage of the website build was very helpful and took the time to explain in a way I understood.

They put together a brief for me with their recommendations which showed they really understood my business and why I wanted a website, and the design they came up with further proved their understanding of the market I want to reach.

I was nervous about using the content management system to populate the website but it is so easy that even I had mastered it within about half an hour.

I can confidently recommend Advanced Web Designs to anyone who is thinking about having a website built.

"I was extremely pleased to find a local web design company who I felt were going to be happy to deal with my start up business, as well as advise me on the best e-commerce solutions available.

I have really enjoyed working with the team at AWD web design, and feel that they have really listened to me. Both Richard and Kyle have been very attentive, explained things well when I have had a query and been happy to meet with me in person to go over any changes I have asked for.

Since going live I have extremely positive feedback on the site and I would have no hesitation whatsoever in recommending AWD to anyone.

A great job, thanks guys!"

The Snug Bug Store
We were recommended Richard and Advanced Web Designs by a mutual friend. My partner and I had just set up a small company to sell Gel Burners, an ornament that can be used indoors or outside to safely burn bio ethanol fuel, which when alight makes for a warming centre piece and talking point.

Not being very web savvy ourselves, it was refreshing that the basic brief we provide was so well interpreted. From the initial design concept and right the way through the project AWD fully understood the product and provided us with some invaluable advice regarding what was needed to ensure we not only ended up with a functional website, but also one that best promoted our product to our target market.

The earthy, natural feel of the design is exactly what we had asked for but the results were much better than expected and their Content Management System is exceptionally simple to ues.

Now the website is live, Richard and his team continue to be proactive and are always on hand to help us with either our requests for the many additional features we keep adding, or making suggestions for ways the website can help improve our sales.

Hertford Town Youth FC
Richard and his team were a real pleasure to work with throughout every stage of the project. They showed genuine enthusiasm for the project and recommended many features that we hadn’t considered but which have made the finished website a highly interactive and informative resource for the club, the team managers and parents of all the players.

As the Club is run on a shoestring and relies almost wholly on volunteers, from individual team coaches and managers right up to the Chairman, Richard and his team designed, developed and are hosting the our website free of charge, a very generous and unexpected offer but ultimately one that demonstrates the ethos and charitable spirit of the company.

Despite this we have still been given the service I would expect to receive as a paying customer and Richard even gave up a Sunday evening to present the new site to the all of the managers and carry out a training session on the very easy to use Content Management System.

Clearly I would highly recommend Advanced Web Designs on a number of levels including their professionalism, expertise, willingness and ability to understand or requirements, the technical advice provided and the numerous extra miles they went to ensure the site covered every eventuality.

From the initial meeting, Advanced Web Designs proved to be an inventive and creative company.

Richard and his team showed genuine interest in providing a range of bespoke design options for our website concept.

We are very pleased with the finished site, which is both modern and attractive. The team’s design skills and knowledge were impressive.

We also found the team reliable and available for questions at all times.

I would be happy to recommend AWD, who were a pleasure to work with.

Crate Ideas
Crate Ideas is a company new in the UK which sells Dog Crate Covers, we aimed to be driven by online sales so therefore needed a website. We went through the regular diligence of recommendations, browsing local companies and internet searches which resulted in a short list of three website developers. We put these through their paces in regard to making sure they could provide the ease of functionality and engaging design; which were the two most important parameters for us. AWD really understood our goals, the product and in addition they put forward some really good ideas for the business. We had no option but to go ahead with them.

They have a great team and really easy to work with, nothing is too much trouble; we just needed to ask if something was possible and it was done. Once we gave the go ahead with their initial design the process was simple and efficient. The end result far exceeded our expectations and we are so delighted with our website.

Matrix Cycles
Advanced Web Designs were recommended to me by my brother-in-law who has used the company to design and develop his own company’s websites over the last 12 years.

Despite them admitting to having no prior knowledge of the industry, they took time to familiarise themselves with my business and the bicycle market in which we operate.

Following our initial discussions they presented a professional and detailed proposal to us whilst displaying the confident and friendly personalities I look for in all of my business relationships. I was also pleased that they took the time to explain to me ‘in layman’s terms’ the technical jargon associated with such projects.

Their initial design concepts proved to me that they fully understood both our brand and our target audience, in fact only a few very minor tweaks were made.

During the development of what was initially a standard ‘e-commerce’ website, I asked AWD to quote me for an additional bike builder system. Like the initial quote, the price was exceptional competitive and despite the tight deadlines I was demanding, by altering their programme of work around they also managed to develop the system in time to go live for the London Bike Show where I was exhibiting.

The bike builder system in particular threw up a lot of technical scenarios which I hadn’t considered, many of which were actually bought to may attention by the guys at AWD, who impressively also provided me with possible solutions to the problems.

Their technical expertise, understanding of what needed to be achieved, attention to detail, competitive price, design skills and most importantly, their patience, are just some of the many reasons I have already recommend them to a business associate and would be happy to recommend their services to anyone looking for a professional web developer.

We are absolutely delighted with AWD. Their initial quote for a website with content management was reasonable and we found them to be a friendly, professional and knowledgeable team so we went ahead without “shopping around”.

Building our website involved integrating software provided by an external supplier and AWD were beyond helpful in liaising with the supplier to ensure that our requirements were met. Nothing was too much trouble and any technical issues were explained to us in layperson’s terms.

Queries and amendments were dealt with promptly and attention to detail and the look and feel of our brand were always given a high priority, resulting in a website we are proud of and which has received accolades from all who have seen it.

We have no hesitation in recommending AWD to friends and acquaintances.

Anything Dogz
When searching for a web designer, I wanted a company who were local and who I felt were going to be happy to deal with a start up business and able to advise on the best e-commerce solutions available.

I had an initial meeting with Richard who listened carefully and with interest as to what I wanted and by the end of our first meeting, he had showed me another site that they had recently designed, which was exactly what I wanted.

Both Richard and Gareth were very attentive and explained things well. They were always quick to attend to any changes that were needed or that I subsequently asked for once the site was completed.

I’ve had some great feedback on the site and I would have no hesitation whatsoever in recommending AWD.

Thanks guys.

Thanks so much to Richard, Gareth and Claire for designing and developing my teddy bear gifts website - Sweetiebears.co.uk. AWD are a pleasure to work with and very quickly grasped the look & feel that I was looking for. As well as providing the know-how & commercial thinking to build my website, they also provided me with support around search engine optimisation, which will prove invaluable. The attention to detail that went into my website was second to none, and I am very happy with the end result. Thanks again to all at AWD.

From our initial first meeting we were confident AWD would provide us with all the advice and guidance we would need to create a brilliant website. Unfortunately we didn’t listen to our instincts and decided to look around! Having sent months speaking to others, we came back to the start frustrated we had wasted time looking elsewhere, when what we wanted was there at the first meeting.

Richard and Gareth always knew what we were asking and wanted in the website, they have done everything we have asked and more. They are always completely honest and never hesitated in telling us if something we suggested would not work. AWD is a professional company with a relaxed approach, nothing is too much trouble. We would not hesitate in recommending AWD. Thanks guys. Funky-Home.com

Loveday Antiques
After speaking to several different web site designers in the area, we decided on using Advanced Web Design as from the start they seemed to understand exactly what our vision was in terms of our website and goals.

They were keen to listen to what our requirements were and also made valid suggestions on how we could make the design more efficient and where we could improve. As they are so familiar with website design they also informed us of design concepts and graphic design especially photo imaging which is a major part of our website.

Richard and Gareth really are perfectionists with attention to detail and no matter how small or how many times they are willing to help. I would fully recommend them to any of my clients and friends.

Thanks for a great website.

DO NOT HESITATE! I have had some bad experiences with web designers in the past but AWD are friendly and efficient and have proved that good designers do exist! My special thanks to Gareth for coming up with solutions to seemingly simple requests which often required complex programming to achieve the effect or facility we wanted, he was always patient, willing to listen and keen to explain. Gareth and Richard have provided us with a good looking website full of up-to-date visuals and features giving us all that we asked for and more. I cannot recommend their services too highly.

Real Estate Worldwide
On recommendation we approached Advanced Web Designs to quote us for a new business venture we were undertaking. We liked what we heard in our initial meeting and as the subsequent quotation fell in with our budget we made the decision to take on their services.
Despite giving them a tight deadline to work to, the brief was met with respect to the timescale, design and technical requirements.

Throughout the development AWD have responded quickly to our requests and queries, provided us with professional advice and developed a simple to use backend system, enabling us to quickly and easily update key areas of the website ourselves.

Overall we have been very happy with all aspects of the company and would have no hesitation recommending them to other businesses.

Attic & Loft Company
I have been very impressed with the level of service the company has received from AWD Ltd to date. The initial design concept was discussed in length and interpreted accurately by your representative. During the development process, AWD Ltd communicated with us on a regular basis to ensure our requirements were adhered to and our re-launched date met. Furthermore, various additions and alterations by us were actioned promptly and without addition charge. I look forward to a similar relationship between both companies with regard to our SEO program in the future.

AWD have hit the spot! No time was spared in identifying the character of our business and the unique features that we wished to promote. AWD’s professional and meticulous approach is combined with artistic flare and vision. Our website now matches the efficient, professional, top-quality, user-friendly service we provide at our clinic. The compliments keep flooding in ….patients say the site is “easy to use and quick to find your way around, interesting & professional, nice to look at, plenty of easy to find information”. Speed and clarity are especially important when people are in pain – so, the design works!

AWD have always responded rapidly to queries and explained clearly in language we can understand. Teething problems have been sorted out promptly.

We will continue to use AWD. I have no hesitation in recommending them to anyone looking for original, stylish but practical website design.

We were recommended to use Advanced Web Designs by one of their existing clients, which we found reassuring.

RHAP Media
Across all four of my businesses a web site is essential. I need my customers to be able to see what we do, how we do it, and then jump on board with a purchase as quickly and easily as possible.

A good web site sets you above your competitors and I feel that my sites do exactly that. I have total confidence that they bring out the best in my business and to that end I can thank my web designers AWD. There are plenty of web site designers around, but very few can truly class themselves as expert or award winning. AWD can justifiably do this which is why they handle all of my web design and subsequent management of my sites.

I find the AWD approach works for me. No nonsense advice as to what will or won’t work and a quality end product that puts me ahead of my competition.
Enough said.

The Bait and Feed Company
We at the Bait and Feed Company have used Advanced Web Designs for the last 12 years and during this time they have revolutionised our website and have increased our Internet sales massively.

Over the entire time we have used AWD we have found them to be professional, proactive, innovative and extremely competitively priced. During this time they have even provided us with some very sound business advice that has proven invaluable to the success of our company.

All of the team at AWD are a very present, polite and easy to deal with. Their systems are extremely easy to use and their after sales service and support are second to none.

In the most recent e-commerce website they have developed for us they used reasonably new technologies and methods to overcome our complicated buying and pricing structures.

Also by optimising words on our site they have managed to achieve a number 1 placing for our company on Goggle and MSN using generic key industry search terms.

I simply can’t praise them enough and not only are we happy to recommend AWD, we would suggest that you don’t waste your time looking elsewhere for a web designer.

Water at Work
We came across Advanced Web Designs after making the decision to look for a new website company. We found their professional but relaxed approach very refreshing and despite a couple of early failed attempts to impress me with their design concepts, they battled on and soon came up with a design I was more than happy with.

Throughout the development stage of the website I was able to view it online which enabled me to monitor the progress and pass on my comments as the website was being built.

Having now used Advanced Web Designs for a couple of years I would be more than happy to recommend them to anyone requiring a website.

Mainline Baits
We have used Advanced Web Designs since 1999 and during this period have forged an excellent relationship with them. During the initial meetings they took the time to understand our business and who our target audience is, in order to design and develop a website that not only reflected what we are about but also that appealed to our large customer base.

As we have grown over the years AWD have re-developed the site for us on a number of occasions, each time getting larger and more diverse whilst at the same time somehow keeping the navigation around the site very simple.

They have also managed to get us to (and keep us at) number one on Google under some very genetic key words and terms used within our industry.

I have always found them easy to contact and they deal with our many regular websites updates quickly and efficiently.

Their ability to keep up-to-date with technology has meant that we have always benefited form having a modern websites and this fact together with their very competitive pricing has once again secured them the job of a big revamp to our website in 2009.

Petsearchers
I am very pleased to recommend Advanced Web Designs for their professional outlook in designing my website. The most important thing for me was the way they grasped how my business worked, essential if the website is to mirror your business.

The quality of design was entirely to my satisfaction and anything I requested or thought needed changing was discussed and implemented easily. Their technological skills are far greater than mine and obviously really necessary in the changing world of website design. Their pricing structure I have found to be very fair and manageable for the design and after sales service, which I have found excellent. Over the past six years I have been completely satisfied with the advice and reliability of this company.

Inside Right
We have been using Advanced Web Designs since 2000 when they developed our first website. Since then we have used them to redevelop the website a further three times, each time growing the website as our business expanded.

We have always found them to be highly professional and easy to deal with. They took the time to understand our business and find out about the products and services we offer in order to better understand the market our website was being aimed at.

Their modern designs and knowledge of the industry in which they specialise has helped our website achieve the goals it has been developed to achieve.

It is for these reasons that we have used Advanced Web Designs to develop websites for our other two businesses.
