My personal site is the second project in which I have enlisted the services of Claire and Meirav.

Initially, together they created my online business, The Slipper Hub. This was an enormous job as we were branding and building a business from scratch. It has been an enormous success.

For the Melanie Sheppard site, I needed an online presence for my published writing and whilst I was very clear about what I didn’t want, I really had no idea of where to start.

Claire listened to my ideas and key words, then pulled together something that very much represented how I wanted my brand to look and feel.

Meirav then unpacked the mechanics ensuring that the sight was slick, but user friendly for both myself and my readers.

These girls work beautifully together fulfilling the brief and beyond.

Timelines are met and their service is of a high standard.

Apart from this, they are just both lovely people to work with and I look forward to our next project.
