Richard was by far the best freelancer I have ever worked with. I was a total novice concerning all things web design at the start of this project. I had no idea what I “really” wanted and or how to get there. This was a very enjoyable and informative baptism of fire.
Initially I wanted a carbon copy of a website had been designed using DUDA with a previous company who had messed me about and given me poor advise. We both quickly realised that this wasn’t going to work and redesigned the whole thing from first principles starting with wire frames.
Proper planning is a must and saves rework and substandard work. Ricard could not state the importance of this enough at the start. He was correct.
We looked at many competitors’ websites and discussed the good, bad and ugly. Then we decide which bits to incorporate into our website and which to leave out. This way we got a very polished product the smart way and made our site look like it was an established player in the market even though we are the new kid on the block.
Richard was very professional and courteous in the way he guided me thorough the project. It is the role of the expert to guide the beginner / client in the correct direction while still giving them the driving seat in their project. This was the case for the whole project. Everything was designed with the website user experience in mind and to optimize conversion rates.
Ricard also has a team of people including copy writers, photo shop experts, designers, social media experts and programmers. There was a lot of custom coding that went into this project, this combined with all the above-mentioned specialties led to the seamless deliver of a very impressive project that had a lot more going on behind the scenes that just web design.
Richards communication with the client is second to none. His advice and ability to pre-empt problems and propose solutions before they become a real issue is a testament to his experience and ability. He went above and beyond throughout the project and took pride and ownership in his work, and it shows.
I have developed a really positive and enjoyable working relationship with Richard, we will work on projects together for the foreseeable future.
You have to sift through a lot of average joes on here. Save yourself the bother and pick a real expert from the beginning. It will be worth it every time and be the difference between (mediocrity / failure) or success.
This project would have failed if it wasn’t for Richard. That is all that needs to be said.
I cannot thank him enough.
