What Folk Say

“We hired Martin Abel to update our very tired and out of date website back in July. He has proved so useful, knowledgeable and professional that apart from our website, we’ve had him design an advertising campaign, our corporate Christmas cards, our corporate calendar, flyers and have had him sitting in on discussions on booth design for a major oil and gas exhibition we are organising in June. He has also prepared our branding guidelines including business cards, letter heads and PowerPoints.” read more >>

“I cannot thank you enough for all the help you have given us in redesigning our charity website. Right from the earliest discussions of your initial concept through to its careful, phased implementation and your continuing backup which is so reassuring, we have really appreciated your patience and your speedy response whenever we need a bit of extra help.
If ever you would like a happy client to talk to a potential new one please don’t hesitate to call me.”

Pat Schooling – Executive Director, Action Against Allergy

“I’ve used Martin a number of times including website design. He is always great to work with, helpful, creative and rigorous. That, I think, is a rare combination. He knows his stuff whether it’s with design, building or delivery. He is always willing to advise and add value and explain things simply. I always enjoy working with him and he is always my first port of call.”

Lizzie Palmer – Fundamental Business Success

“Dear Martin, I wanted to let you know two things that I thought you might like to hear. One is that I have just successfully managed to edit my website, to add on some reviews of the Ken Clarke book. The other is that I got a new and very exciting project last month, and the authors who chose me did it largely on the basis of my website. Thanks Martin!”
