Becky’s Social Media

 

Review from Hawthorne Legal LLP
Quite simply the BEST website/ designer I have worked with….. and that’s a long list! Becky is a remarkable designer with a wonderful eye for detail and the feel of a project. She is a great listener, she has tremendous insight and knows what she is talking about…. I trust her judgement always when it comes to what will work and what won’t. Responsive and quick but also realistic when she sets expectations on a project. I have always marvelled at how she can run with an idea and hit the nail on the head straight away….. if I could give 6 stars I would without hesitation!
