It’s great to be appreciated…

It's great to be appreciated when a couple sitting on the floor comment about your website
A family friend suggested Nic to me, and I engaged his services to enhance my current website. I relied on his expertise and trusted him for the updates on my webpage. Nic conducted himself with utmost professionalism, demonstrated excellent knowledge, and proved to be exceptionally easy to collaborate with. I wholeheartedly recommend Nic and look forward to working with him on my future projects. Thank you once again, Nic.
The Design People came highly recommended by Rachel's List, who I really admire. I am absolutely thrilled with my new website as a ghostwriter and book coach. Nic nailed the clean, crisp look I wanted and exceeded my expectations from start to finish. He is also a pleasure to work with. I've had excellent feedback on my new website. Highly recommended!
Thank you Nic. You could not have been more helpful to our organisation. You explain things clearly, respond promptly and have a great creative eye. Nothing was too hard for you and we will definitely keep using you.😊
Professional. Experienced. Quality. Value. Genuine.This is how I describe our experience with The Design People. Nic redesigned three of our websites, balancing communications with multiple parties and changing design requirements in a professional yet warm manner. Nothing was ever a problem and Nic always responded promptly to ensure the project was delivered on time and reflecting the brief. Nic also recommended and helped us to transition our domain which was above the scope of the design project.I highly recommend The Design People.The Ballet Society, New South Wales
Nic did a great job redesigning our website and was a pleasure to work with - he was very responsive and helpful at all times during the redesign process.
Genuine know how. Our queries and requests have always been answered and resolved quickly. Very highly recommended!
If you're looking for a web-designer, look no further than The Design People! Nic developed our organisations first website and in our tenth year he gave it a re-design which is stylish, professional, colourful and absolutely represents who we are and what we stand for at Sport Matters. With a strong understanding of our business, Nic goes above and beyond to deliver fantastic service, is quick to respond with ongoing support or advice, and is always our first call when we need a new website created for one of our international projects.
Excellent service all around! Prompt service, communicates clearly with realistic time frames! Have only had A-Class service! Thanks Nic!! Love your work! Ever reliable!
Working with an NGO like Sport Matters in the Media and Comms field often requires valuable support, especially from specialists, and that support always comes readily and willingly from The Design People, with Nic at the helm, when called upon for CMS advice or technical wizardry.
From our first meeting Nic has always maintained his professionalism and worked with us to create a new, fresh and contemporary website. Nic has always been easy to work with and understands our business requirements for the website. He is also knowledgeable in offering advice on latest website trends, website hosting and management. We are so happy that we found Nic as our Website Designer for the current website and future websites! Robyn - Instant Access
The Design People recently built two webs sites for us, and we are thrilled with the results! For our first website (Sappho Books & Cafe) we asked for it to be rich, warm and creative and to reflect the experience of actually meandering through our unusual shop and that is exactly what we got!Our second website (Da Capo Music) has e-commerce as it’s major component, which is both working very efficiently and has the simpler, cleaner look we were after, so in the more technical demands of setting up online sales for this site, we are very satisfied! We found Nicholas great to work with and very responsive to requests for changes from us. We had a number of quotes and his was at the best price.It is fabulous to now have websites that we are very proud of!
It has been an absolute pleasure to work with Nic for the past few years on our website. Nic always showed a high level of understanding our brief and executed all of our requirements within the requested time frame. Nic made the entire experience for our staff simple and they really enjoyed working with him throughout the last few years.
Thank you Nic for helping us improve our website use-ability!! Nic is so easy to deal with, has a can-do attitude and has really supported us with our website design and woo commerce site.
Nic is an absolute pleasure to deal with. Not only is his design work great, so too is his easy going yet professional attitude. He is also a great problem solver and really considers user experience when it comes to website design. Thanks Nic!
Nic has been my go-to guy for anything web related over the past 8 years. He always goes above and beyond to make sure the job gets done right and clients are totally happy regardless of the size of the project. He is a true professional, always delivering high quality work, on schedule, and on budget. I have complete faith in trusting The Design People to look after the needs of my corporate clients, SMEs, and individual entrepreneurs. If you’re looking for a creative and reliable web design company to take your business to the next level, look no further!
Fabulous working with Nic. He listens to requirements and then comes up with highly creative concepts to meet the brief. My sites were finished quickly and he has been very responsive to changes I wanted made. Would unreservedly recommend him.
The name says it all. Nic and The Design People were amazing to take my business website to the next level. Spoke to me in laymans terms, understood the brief and executed to exceed my expectations. I cannot recommend them highly enough if you want a quality site with great results and service.
Nick is extremely helpful, patient and affordable- what more could one possibly want in in a web designer? Working with him was an absolute pleasure ( nothing was too much trouble).
Nic was recommended to me through a friend to design my pet care website. He was patient helping me work through the website and teaching me along the way how to run the website myself. He gave great insights and improved my google index ranking quickly. I'm very pleased with what he's done understanding how to best interact with my customers through my website. I've received great praise for the websites redesign on its functionality and design. Can't recommend him enough!
Nic's work was fantastic. Our new website was crucial to our association's rebranding, and he produced it quickly and professionally, sourcing excellent custom plugins and adapting them perfectly to our needs. Where I had follow-up questions in the weeks afterward, he was only too happy to answer them and provide additional support. We've since received praise from other teams at our campus; I heartily recommended Nic to them, as I do here.
Nic was excellent from the start. He knew exactly what I wanted. The site was completed very quickly and Nic has continued to make changes to my site as necessary which is really important for me. Thanks Nic!
