Sharon Rich, Making the Connection

Additional requests for help were always met with friendliness and nothing seemed too much trouble

Suspire Media have created a fantastic website for me! I came to Leeroy not at all sure about what to expect or what I wanted. From the off he put me at ease and took me through everything in a clear and straightforward manner. With Leeroy's support the whole process was enjoyable and stress-free. His approach is generous and empowering, he gave me so much excellent advice and guidance on every aspect of my website and beyond, from choosing the right photos to writing a blog and using social media. Additional requests for help were always met with friendliness and nothing seemed too much trouble to go over with me (even for a second or third time!)

Leeroy pays great attention to detail, he dedicated a lot of time to understanding my work and what I am seeking to achieve. His style of questioning encouraged me to consider my business from lots of different angles, this not only helped create the right website for my needs but gave me some valuable insights into my underlying values and objectives.

I would absolutely recommend Suspire Media to anyone and will definately use Leeroy again for any future web related work.

Hannah Jefferies, Fundraising and Finance. Children Change Colombia

We are really happy with the finished design! It’s fresh, bright and clear.

We are really happy with the finished design! It’s fresh, bright and clear. It definitely presents Children Change Colombia as we would wish the public to view us.

Leeroy has communicated really well with us at every stage of the site development process. He always kept us up-to-date with what he was working on and responded quickly and helpfully whenever we needed advice and support.

He was always very willing to make tweaks to the website to ensure it met all our needs. The CMS is set up in a way that we have a lot of control over the website’s content which was one of our main requirements for our new site, and Leeroy provided us with a clear and thorough on-site CMS training. He was also keen to ensure our SEO worked as well as possible, and took time to explain to us how to do this. We were really impressed with how well he coped with the tricky nature of developing a bilingual site without previous knowledge of Spanish!

Louise Collins, louisecollinsvoice.com

I came to Leeroy with a website that needed optimisation and updating. I already liked the design but I had no control over the content and no one was finding me on Google - which defeated the whole object of having a website in the first place! I have to say I was also illiterate in terms of website technology and terminology. Leeroy had two jobs on his hands - optimising and updating my website and communicating what he was doing to me!! In all honesty, I really wasn't looking forward to the process.

He provides a myriad of options, never dictates but points out how this will impact the website user .

Firstly, Leeroy worked well beyond the remit of my request. He helped me to tailor the content of my website in a way that the user and google would respond to. He has a real understanding of the interface between website usage and marketing psychology. I also began to create a website that reflected more truthfully who I am and what I offer. Leeroy then recoded my website so that it has a responsive design that can be viewed on all devices.

Secondly, he taught me how to use the CMS which was straight forward and user friendly. I know have a huge amount of control over the contents and, of course, whenever I make changes the website is further optimised.

Lastly, Leeroy demystified the whole Internet process which was was proving so difficult for me. I now understand, to some extent, hosting and domain names, how to purchase them and how to move from one hosting provider to another. Again, he explained this in his typically clear and patient way which is a result of his underlying expertise. I cannot express how much this has increased my confidence.

Nothing is too much trouble for Leeroy and nothing is beyond his experience and knowledge. He provides a myriad of options, never dictates but points out how this will impact the website user . Not only have I got the website I wanted, targeting the clients I want, I have gained a sufficient rational of website design and technology which I thought was quite beyond me.

Camilla John, Fundraising & Communications Manager, Bag Books

We are delighted with our new website created by Suspire Media. It fits the brief perfectly – contemporary, creative, informative and easy to navigate. Leeroy gave us excellent advice throughout the process and welcomed our ideas and feedback at every stage. His attention to detail and patience is admirable. Our new website is exactly what we hoped for and more. It has been an enjoyable and stress free experience and incredibly good value for money.

Gary Robb, Business Support Manager, WLM

Suspire Media continues to be a valued resource to us as we develop our services and our site.

We chose Suspire Media to redesign our out of date and difficult to manage website and to build an intranet for us from scratch. We had recently undertaken a re-branding exercise, and so Leeroy worked with us to get the right look to express this and give a clean look to the site, as well as make it easy to maintain, and to portray information on what we do and how we do it.

He opened our eyes to some new possibilities and patiently worked with us to discover what we wanted and took us through the process of designing the structure and content feeling confident at every stage.

We have since updated the site to include responsive design - which was a totally painless exercise for us, but makes a huge improvement to using the site on a mobile device etc.

Suspire Media continues to be a valued resource to us as we develop our services and our site.

Beverly Finn: Irish Centre Housing

We approached Suspire Media to redevelop our dated website and we could not have made a better choice.

Leeroy is a perfectionist with meticulous attention to detail

We wanted to develop a contemporary, professional, interactive website which appealed to all our stakeholders including residents and external partners.

Leeroy patiently took us through each stage of the development with his professional, calm and “can do” attitude and with his creative input we were able to replicate the organisation’s colours and logo in a clean and visually appealing website.

Leeroy is a perfectionist with meticulous attention to detail however his patience is endless and nothing was too much trouble. His wealth of experience and expertise meant that the advice he gave throughout the project was always relevant and helpful.

With Leeroy’s help we have developed an easily maintained, high quality website which we are extremely pleased with and we would have no hesitation whatsoever in highly recommending Suspire Media.

Lydia Burke: Friendly Creatures

The finished product appears slick and upmarket

I am so grateful to Leeroy at Suspire Media for the amazing new website he has created for me. I now have a professional and well-designed website that is easy for clients to navigate around and stands out against other websites advertising similar services to mine. Many clients and friends have had a browse and given me excellent feedback.

Leeroy has patiently coached me on my content and photography so that the finished product appears slick and upmarket. Looking back over the weeks of this new website being created and going live, I realise I have had an enjoyable pain-free experience! I have already recommended Suspire Media to colleagues and will continue to highly recommend him to anyone who needs to create or replace a website.

Leeroy built the SAP website for us and was at all times, thorough, reliable, creative and helpful. He has consistently responded to requests and queries, made recommendations that have saved us time and money and, most of all, produced a website for us with which we continue to be very pleased and which he continues to help upgrade and maintain. I would thoroughly recommend him!

We couldn’t be happier with the work that Suspire Media has done for us and have had nothing but positive feedback since we launched our new website. From the very first meeting, Leeroy listened to exactly what we wanted and time after time came back with results that exceeded our expectations. He was extremely patient with all of our requests, and took the time to make sure that we understood everything about our new website and how to maintain it. Suspire Media offers a professional, reliable and impressive service; we highly recommend it and hope that we can work with Leeroy again in the future.

ARC is a charity providing information and support to expectant and bereaved parents and health professionals.

Our website is now more accessible to the public and easy to manage

Having trawled the internet for a web designer, we shortlisted and selected Suspire Media - what a find! Our website is now more accessible to the public and easy to manage by the non-techie of us at ARC. It looks good, does what we want it to do, is simple to update and has generated multiple enquiries. It came in on budget and on time and there were no hidden extras. Leeroy Lugg at Suspire Media really listened to what we wanted. Suspire Media have been a joy to work with - approachable, prompt and professional - we thoroughly recommend them!

James Howard: localpower.org.uk

Suspire Media has been fantastic on both occassions that I have used them. The designs are always fresh, clear, and in my experience, right first time! I've always found Suspire to be incredibly professional, well-prepared and simply brilliant to work with. Suspire really understands websites, which may sound odd, but you'd be amazed how many web designers don't! I couldn't imagine using anyone else.

Rachel Fairbairn: team-leyton.org.uk

When we tendered the website we were attracted to Leeroy's openness in explaining the stages we would be going through. We've been in safe hands ever since: Suspire Media have a very empowering approach taking us from technophobia to competent CMS usage and confidence in managing our website. Leeroy's knowledge of accessibility issues has been particularly important for us as a public sector organisation and has already attracted compliments from our customers. I thoroughly recommend him to anyone looking to set up a website.

Jillian Convey: Cherie Blair Foundation

Suspire Media provided an excellent professional service tailored to our needs. As a specialist in the charity sector, Leeroy understood our need for a website that focused on what was really important to us – the women entrepreneurs we support. He went above and beyond the brief, finding ways to improve the website wherever possible and adding new features when our needs changed. Since launching the website, we have had nothing but positive feedback. I would strongly recommend Suspire Media to any organisation.

Note: we no longer manage this site and it has been redesigned by another agency.


Emily Scantlebury: licensingadvice.org

"I would heartily recommend Suspire Media - they have produced a very high quality, user-friendly website that I am really proud of. Leeroy explained everything to me in plain English and taught me how to manage the site myself. All my enquiries have been dealt with very quickly, and no question has gone unanswered. Everyone that I have shown the site to is very impressed, and amazed at the very reasonable cost, thinking it must have cost a fortune! As a charity we have real concerns with costs but this was excellent value for money without compromising at all on quality. The design is fantastic and the site is suitable for all users, regardless of ability and I am convinced that the site will boost my project's image and will be of great use to me and my clients".

James Dexter: earwig-organics.co.uk

"I chose Suspire Media to develop my website because I had seen previous work by the company and I was impressed by the intuitive nature of the design, the clean and uncluttered feel to the graphics and the obvious attention to detail. My subsequent collaboration with Suspire Media has proven to be satisfying and informative. At every stage through the development of my website Suspire Media staff have been helpful, patient and encouraging. Using Suspire Media has not only helped me to launch my own commercial and artistic interests in the world of music but has supplied me with a quality website for the future. I would not hesitate to recommend Suspire Media as a company with insight and artistic integrity that also has an eye to commercial success."

"We contacted Suspire Media in May 2005 to work on our two websites. Their work has impressed us and our colleagues worldwide. The website has enabled us to communicate our message in a consistent, professional and easy manner. Many people have complemented us on the design, and providing Leeroy is available - we hope to be working with him on all of our website projects. It has been an honour to work with Suspire Media.
