After every project, we ask our clients for feedback so we can continue to improve and develop our service. Here’s what they have to say…

The process of designing and setting up our website was flawless. Craig was a professional throughout and helped us establish our brand within the market. He listened to us and explained every step during the consultation period. Without doubt 45b were second to none in helping us grow the business through our new website. A five star ***** service.

Stuart McKay – Doubtfire Resourcing

I was having difficulty in finding a good company to design my website. A friend recommended 45b and it proved a great recommendation.  Craig works away hard without fuss in building a suitable website. He carried out changes that I requested straight away and I was delighted with the professional job. I would highly recommend 45b for anyone in search of a new website. They are also competitively priced. Thanks for all your hard work Craig.

Gordon Milligan – The Caledonian Experience

It has been great working with Craig. The website he has provided us with has been exactly what we were expecting, and it is great to finally have a theme that doesn’t limit us. He was incredibly understanding throughout the entire process and was happy to answer all of my questions. I would highly recommend Craig to anyone looking to give their website a refresh.

Ailidh Mather – SnapDragon IP

Thank you, Craig, for designing and building the new website for the South East of Scotland Cancer Network (SCAN). The website gives us a professional look while being user friendly to visitors. Craig is very creative and understands quickly what the client wants to achieve. He helped me enormously by developing a checklist of the information required, so there was a clear structure for us both to work from. Craig delivered on both timescales and on budget. I would highly recommend 45b to anyone looking to develop a website of their own!

Rachel Russell – South East of Scotland Cancer Network

Craig at 45b was recommended to me to build our new website because of his web design skills but also because he is so easy to work with. I had an idea what I wanted the website to look like and what it needed to do but he had the skills to bring it to life and the end product is much better than I imagined. From the outset Craig clearly explained how it could be built in simple terms and he patiently answered any technical questions I had. His resulting design is sleek and stylish and a huge improvement in usability to potential guests. Craig also went above and beyond to give great advice on domain names, linked emails, Supercontrol, and other technical points. I don’t hesitate to recommend 45b to anyone considering building a bespoke website for their business.

Ro Banyard – The Mill House

From start to finish Craig was a pleasure to deal with. Incredibly knowledgeable and skilled, and unphased by my requests and questions. The finished website (which was delivered incredibly fast, ahead of schedule!) is professional, attractive and easy to navigate. I would absolutely recommend this company to anyone looking for a new website.

Jen Watson – Lothian Sexual Health

We have been working with Craig for over ten years and he always provides a fantastic level of service and delivers an end product that is exactly what we want. He not only builds our websites for us but also provides peace of mind with his technical support each year. I can highly recommend 45b.

Emily Johnston – Essential Edinburgh

Craig was very helpful and professional from the start. With a relaxed manner and helpful attitude he made the process simple and straightforward.

We look forward to working with Craig at 45b who will be supporting our development on the site going forward.

David Calder – Luxury Wellbeing

Work with Craig was a terrific experience as he was intuitive and thoughtful about how my website would work.  The design was great, but also the layout made an immediate difference to my SEO and site useage.  The bounce rate almost immediately went from over 60% to just 2% and the page hits rose from 1-2 per visit to over 8.   His input on the format for the site was invaluable in achieving this.

Angela Casey – Gluten Free Edinburgh

I have been very impressed with Craig’s work on both our Website and Newsletter. He has helped us to move our site on to a new web platform and completely redesigned it in a simpler and more effective design. Craig had lots of great ideas and tips and gave us contacts for photographs and other resources we could use on the site that saved us time and money. We very much appreciate his help also with our regular Newsletter which he also redesigned in line with our website. He is easy to work with and responds quickly and effectively to requests for ongoing help. I have no hesitation in recommending Craig and 45b.

Pauline Forbes – Caledonia Asset Management

Our website was in desperate need of updating we looked at several web designers before choosing 45b. Craig took on board our initial concept and made it work for us. It’s easy for us to update and we are now able to keep our members and visitors alike informed what’s going on at the golf club. We now have a professional website which gives our members accessibility to their site. A job well done.

Carol King – Silverknowes Golf Club

We are delighted with our new website. The site is attractive, professional and easy to navigate. Craig understood the look and feel that we wanted to create and the finished design has exceeded our expectations. I would highly recommend 45b for your website design.

Paula Mackay – Liberty Blooms

Before time, beyond spec and under budget: 45b delivered our site with utmost professionalism. Our ‘technophobia’ was taken out of the equation through comprehensive service, clear design and patient explanation – would not hesitate to use again.

Eddie Linton-Smith – Penicuik First

Throughout the various stages of our project Craig has kept in close contact – I have no concern that he won’t be at the other end of the phone or email when I need to ask for his support or advice. Our new website not only looks the part, but it is extremely user-friendly and we have had several enquiries from customers since its successful launch. I am delighted that everything has run so smoothly, that we’ve managed to deliver a functional modernised website at such a low cost and in such a short timeframe, and I would NOT HESITATE to recommend the services of 45b.

Mandy Thomson – R&S Robertson Hotel Lighting

We appreciated Craig’s straightforward, no nonsense approach. He was quick to understand what we wanted, with an almost intuitive response.

Jane Livingstone – Avocado Sweet

Craig at 45b web design has been a joy to work with. He made all my website dreams come true and delivered me exactly what I envisaged. He made web design easy to understand and it is such a support to know he is there with advice whenever i need it. I am really pleased to have worked with a local designer, it made such a difference to meet Craig in person and talk through all our ideas. I would highly recommend him to anyone who wants a well designed website by a great company.

Emily Hogarth – Emily Hogarth Designs

I would always work with 45b. I have searched for years for someone like Craig who just gets it and makes it happen. No drama, great value and excellent service. I was delighted. Extremely good value for top-drawer service.

Tom Melville – Elements for Home

45b have done an amazing job creating a new website for c:card – NHS Lothians most accessed Sexual Health Service. Craig was so easy to work with and took us with him every step of the way. He made what could have been a daunting process fun and exciting. We now have a website that is much clearer and easier for our clients to use. The back up service and user manual Craig has provided is excellent. We wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Craig and 45b to others who want a quality website designed to their specifications at a cost which is great value for money.

Mark Baillie – NHS Lothian

45b has produced a really professional, eye catching and interactive website for Positive Help. We have really enjoyed working with Craig who has been supportive and knowledgeable throughout the process. When we were originally seeking funding for our website Craig took the time to help us understand what we could get out of a website and how we could maximise the work our website could do to raise our profile as a charity. Once we secured funding Craig was endlessly patient as we put together the site content and amended copy and images. He has produced a great design that presents our work with people affected by HIV/AIDS in the Edinburgh in an easily accessible and clear way. We also found the CMS training really easy to follow and have already put it into practise. We wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Craig and 45b to any charity or organisation wanting to increase their profile on the internet – a truly professional service.

Ros McIntosh – Positive Help

Thanks to 45b for creating a great website. They provided a very professional service and I would definitely recommend Craig and 45b.
