Following Adrian Fowler’s suggestion to create a website for me to promote my work remains one of the best professional decisions I have made. I had initially been concerned about what the cost of such a high quality product might be and so was assuaged by the quote (competitive, to say the least… exceptional value, particularly for the apex level of service provided) and any financial concerns were immediately swept aside.
Adrian and his team got straight to the task at hand, wanting to capture both the essence of my work and my personality on the site (rather than just the functioning but standard, run-of-the-mill, design). Collaborating with him on the design, layout and content was a highly enjoyable experience, rather than the drudgery I had imagined it might be (and had up to that point avoided like the plague). Instead it was great fun, intensely creative and a highly productive experience. The professionalism at The Web Lab is exceptional.
After an initial consultation Adrian established my taste, style, sense of humour and (most importantly) the content of my writing (he read much of my material, published and unpublished… dedicated research!) and so this all shines from the end product. What he created is not only highly functional, interactive and simple to use, but also stylish, original and personally crafted. The attention to detail, combined with exceptional technical skill and that personal touch, has given me a unique website with which I am thrilled.
This was all turned around from concept to completion in a matter of days to meet the tight deadline of my departure from the UK to France. Thank you Adrian and co. at The Web Lab. I shall raise you all a fine glass of Châteauneuf-du-Pape from the land of wine and cheese!
