Testimonials - What our clients are saying...
Despite my tight timescales you came up with a firm plan to get the website up and running as per my request. Even then when I failed to meet my own imposed deadlines you worked around it without exerting undue pressure on me and helped me to get to the point where we could go live. You excelled in your support for me and went more than the extra mile to achieve the completion go-live date quicker than I expected.
One of the key points was establishing new e-mail addresses which were done instantaneously! Indeed you once again came to the fore when I had to replace my phone and immediately gave me access to e-mails remotely rather than having to jump through hoops as other providers do.
Without doubt I will be recommending DDA for a complete website service.Martyn Keates

The Old Chapel is very grateful to Bob and the team for her new lease of life, thank you Bob.
It was worth every penny as I learned more in a couple of hours than I would have believed possible, and I am now confident that I am able to efficiently and accurately maintain and update my website at any time.
I am also grateful for the work you put in to bring me up to date with facebook and I also now have the knowledge to upload new video material to my You Tube account.
This was money well spent and I am grateful again to the excellent work done by you and your team.

It looks stunning and the graphics really do make an impact.
I am sure that this new website will be a major feature in securing lots more bookings throughout Hampshire and further afield in the coming weeks and months.
Thank you again for tremendous job.

When we came to you and asked you to redesign our website I think it was, upon reflection quite an unreasonable request! But you responded with incredible professionalism and dedication.
We had decided to undertake a radio advertising campaign and gone ahead and signed the contract for that, we then realised that the old website looked awful and also no one could find us on the search engines - so not much point in directing traffic to it!
Your expert team were fantastic. Within two days they had created a highly professional web site that we are now proud of, and within a week we were appearing on the first page of Google for not just our own business name, but also some of the other key words that we specified.
We are a busy company and pride ourselves on giving professional, expert care for childcare and adults of all ages; we are well trusted by our clients and we care absolutely.
I feel the service we received from DDA from the meeting through to completion and the training showed that the team at DDA really do care too.
I would have no hesitation in recommending you and your team for website design or anything based around the internet and online marketing.
From our very first meeting I knew we had found a professional company who really knew their business and we have not been disappointed.
The initial design and launch of the website was painless; I always knew the information you needed from me and your staff were always happy to help when I had any queries. Jim’s ‘handover’ session was great – he made a non-technical person like me understand how to update and maintain our lovely new website.
However, although I was full of good intentions and knew all about updating blogs and Facebook pages, weeks went by and other things got in the way and suddenly our website was not up to date any more. But once again DDA came to my rescue with their maintenance and development package! It was great to know that I can now email content across to DDA and they perform magic to make it look good on screen. I always leave your office with my head reeling with new ideas and possibilities for all aspects of on line marketing.
Thank you Barbara and team for everything. I will not hesitate to recommend you to anyone I know who needs a new website.
It was important to us that our website reflected the quality of our product and professional level of service we offer, and in particular conveyed our core values: quality, service, experience and integrity. We also had strong design ideas in mind.
Barbara's direct, no nonsense, professional, and knowledgeable approach meant DDA were our first choice when we were looking to build our new website. We experienced excellent service throughout the development. Terminology and site mechanics that we did not fully understand were explained to us, meaning we could make informed decisions about the site template; we were skilfully managed so that there were no delays in supplying the content and images; and the training on how to update the site was relevant and pitched at our level of understanding. As a result we achieved the design that we wanted – on budget and on time.
Within a short time of our website going live, we began to receive enquires through the website, which is great. We have no reservations in recommending Barbara and the team at DDA to business and organisations that we are in contact with. Not only was the service level excellent, but the price was competitive too.

From booking to completion our customers deal with fully qualified, trained technicians. So that we can deliver our message more widely we felt one of the ways of doing this would be to have a website.

The whole process was carried out in professional and efficient manner: I was very happy with the way it went!

Learning to drive can be a daunting prospect and as a driving instructor I understand not only the range of emotions felt whilst learning to drive but the positive impact driving has on our lives.

I was keen to use a local company and Barbara and her team at DDA were the perfect choice.

Elaine’s Automatic Driving School
It is important to Fuschia Therapy to have highly professional web site because when you are in the complimentary therapy sector firstly there is a huge amount of competition which is often unqualified but give the appearance of being so.
Secondly clients need to know they can trust you with the provision of therapies.
After a very thorough consultation you took Margaret’s wonderful logo and business card design and incorporated it into the web site design in a complimentary and stunning way giving Eve and I everything we could wish for in terms of visual impact.
You then put together the pages and functionality that we wanted, making many useful suggestions.
We were then called in for training and it is testament both to Matt’s gifts as a tutor and to the simplicity of the system you gave us that I found it easy to add text and content. This is a far cry from the My Wonderful Day site which looks and is very professional, but is very complex to amend.
The end result is a beautiful site which does everything we need at the moment and I know I will easily be able to add pages when and need them in the future.
The whole experience of working with DDA Web Design was excellent and both Eve and I are committed to recommending your services to everyone we know.
Paul Seaman & Eve Patti
I am pleased to be a customer of the Digital Design Agency as I feel Barbara and her team run a professional company and are keen for my business to succeed on the Internet.
Barbara, Matt and Simon have all come across as very knowledgeable in their fields which gave me great confidence in the work they were doing for me. All members of the team have been very patient with me throughout the development process, ensuring that there was no aspect of my website that I was unhappy with.
I was very grateful of the training session to show me how to use the content management system in order to update and make changes to the website myself. The support that has been offered now my website is complete has been impressive and I feel confident that if I come across any problems in the future, that DDA will help and support me in any way they can.
I would like to thank you and Simon for your excellent work on my new website. From the beginning you helped me to plan what I wanted the site to look like, what content I needed to have and how the pages would link.
The whole process was completed quickly and the tuition to help me upload content was exceptionally good. I look forward to encouraging people to look at the site and the online portfolio.
I wouldn’t hesitate in recommending you and wish you well at the Inspired Awards in November.
Well what a refreshing experience; no hassles at all, website launched at agreed time, transfer of hosting went to schedule, website looks great, optimization done. One hears too many horror stories about development of new websites but that was not our experience with DDA Web Design – quite the opposite in fact.
From the moment of agreement to go ahead the process was slick, Simon guided me through the look and feel of the pages, Barbara did all the search engine phrases and optimisation without even being prompted.
It has been a delight to work with them. We are delighted with our new website and have had great feedback already.
I can highly recommend DDA Web Design.
HR Solutions 4U
When I needed a new website I rang a number of website design companies but was left confused and deflated because none of them could speak to me in plain English. I contacted the Digital Design Agency and as soon as I spoke to them, I knew I would not need to go anywhere else for my website.
They understood my requirements and everything was explained to me in a easy to understand way and with patience.
The website they created for my online store was better than I could have ever imagined and it was very obvious to me that they had listened to every detail of my requests about the website, I thought it was perfect. It seemed to me that they managed to create it exactly as I was thinking.
When I’ve needed help with the website, they have always been there to help and they have provided me with outstanding service and continue to show this for my company.
I am so glad that my final call was to these wonderful people, the website was delivered on time and the cost was more than reasonable to the other companies I contacted about my website.
I was very delighted with my new website design by the Digital Design Agency. Within days I had gained new enquiries and new customers. My website portrays my company in a far more professional manner than my old one ever did.
The aftercare support, when I have had difficulties, has been exceptional.
I would have no hesitation in recommending Simon and Barbara and the Digital Design Agency.

It has been a pleasure working with Barbara and Matt. The process was professional and thorough and the result is excellent; delivered on time and right first time.
GJS Business Solutions
Our new website has just gone live and we are very pleased with the result. The team at DDA Web Design understood my requirements at the initial briefing and has delivered fully in line with the agreed specification.
We are really delighted with the content management system which is very easy to use – we were up and running after a couple of hours training. A job well done and I would have no hesitation in recommending DDA Web Design’s services.
BCP Search & Selection Ltd
I would like to thank you for your prompt and efficient revamping of our new website.
We commissioned a Web Design agency to build us a new site nearly a year ago, it was due to be ready for the beginning of our catering season in March this year. By July we still had an unsatisfactory site, generating no business.
We approached DDA Web Design in August and you helped us retrieve this site from the original agency by the end of September.
In less than 3 weeks you had the site up and running with exciting features, some how you knew exactly what we wanted. We will not hesitate in recommending you and your friendly team.
I am writing to thank you for the professional way that DDA has upgraded our events website. The new design is attractive and easy to navigate. It shows off the lovely manor house, grounds and facilities at Sherfield and has already generated numerous enquiries.
It is a credit to you and your team that you managed to liaise with the staff at a time when we were extraordinarily busy.
Your patience and tenacity combined with your high level of skills has produced a website that we are really proud of.
I recommend DDA 100% to anyone who wants a first class website.
Professor Pat Preedy
We are extremely pleased with our new Wine Divine website which you designed for us.
Right from the start we were impressed by the detail on the quotation, which enabled us to make an informed decision to choose DDA Web Design as our Web designer partners.
We appreciated your patience, hands on training and ability to translate our ideas into reality and your ability to communicate in lay mans terms, all of which made the process of building our website a stress free experience. Thank you and we look forward to working with you both in the future as we continue to develop the functionality on our website.
Wine Divine Ltd
We have now had our website for quite sometime and I would like to take this opportunity to say how pleased we are with the results. We have many, many more enquiries than we ever had before with our old site. This helps to ensure we get fully booked well in advance before the start of the of school terms!
We love the look of the website and the search engine optimization must be working from the enquiries we get.
Thank you again.
Tiny Town Kindergarten
Thank you so much for your design ideas, perseverance, and expertise in helping us to create and launch our new website.
You have heard the views of at least half the people in the firm and have managed to come up with a solution that has satisfied them all which is no mean feat, so we thank you for your patience in that regard.
We have started to notice that we are getting clients through our website for the first time and we have had favourable comments about out straight forward presentation.
We will have no hesitation in recommending you to others.
Dear Barbara – what service!!! That’s wonderful – I checked it and thank you!!!! Sonia
As a professional actress, playwright and producer, having a dynamic-looking and functional web presence is vital to my career. I wanted a one page website that was eye-catching and instantly informative, and went to Barbara and Simon on the recommendation of friends and family who had already commissioned similar sites from them.
Right from my first contact with them, Simon and Barbara were professional, efficient and receptive to my personal and professional needs. I gave them an outline of what I was looking for in a site – from colour palates to functionality, and left it in their capable hands. I was absolutely thrilled when they came back to me only a few days later with a mock up of the site that surpassed my expectations. They managed to get all the information I needed onto the site without making it look crowded – it was sharp, modern and compelling, and laid out in a manner that made it easy to get the information needed. I made a few minor suggestions, and the finished site was live in a couple of days.
Barbara and Simon have also been brilliant about making small changes to the site as my career has evolved in order to keep the information current. When I ask for changes to be made, they’re always made within an hour or two – which is essential for a career like mine, where things can change so quickly.
The website has been hugely instrumental in helping me secure more work internationally, and I couldn’t be happier with the overall service. I would recommend Barbara and Simon to anyone without reservation.
My sincere thanks to Barbara and Simon for their sterling work.
Actress, Playwright and Producer
I wanted to write to tell you how pleased I am with the service you have provided me in building my website. The process from the initial meeting to producing the proposal which was clear and easy to understand through to the final stages has been incredibly smooth, professional and enjoyable. I think the most important value-adding points which have been important to me are the speed with which you have responded to my requests and problems, the clear yet concise way things have been explained, the excellent training session on the website and the added input and suggestions you have given me along the way.
The look and feel of the website was crucial to me and that has been achieved brilliantly and very creatively. You have provided an excellent service which I believe is value for money and I look forward to continuing our business relationship in the future.
I am absolutely delighted with the excellent website Barbara, Simon and the team at DDA have put together for me.
I am regularly complimented on the site – how crisp and clean it is and the easy navigation. The search engine optimisation is also superb. I am now getting enquiries as a result of being on the first page of Google.
Barbara and Simon remain patient, helpful and committed through changes and additions that have been added to the website. Their training is excellent and no matter how trivial the question I am never made to feel silly.
I thoroughly enjoy working with the team and would recommend them to anyone looking for a professional website.
DDA Web Design were recommended to me by our local computer expert as I was looking for assistance with a web solution for the London RSPCA branches that I am responsible for.
When I met Barbara and Simon, the first thing that I noticed was how friendly and approachable they were. They were willing to listen to my web problems and immedately understood my frustrations with the previous web solution I had implemented. They knew the exact questions to ask in order to clarify my needs. Barbara and Simon were clearly experts in their field. I left the initial meeting feeling very confident that they would provide the perfect solution for me.
Not only did they formalise the solution almost immedately, but it was very cost effective and they exceeded any expected timescales by working through the weekend to actually deliver the CMS branch template solution. The template looked very professional and this was crucial for raising the profile of my RSPCA branches, rehoming animals and recruiting volunteers in local areas.
The CMS package was extremely easy to learn with a 30 minute training session with Simon. I would also like to highlight that the support I have received from Simon has been excellent and he has always returned any calls and emails very promptly, solving any queries that I may have.
The branch websites that have to-date been implemented as part of this project have already enabled needy animals in the local areas to be successfully rehomed.
I would recommend DDA Web Design to anyone seeking a professional, knowledgeable and approachable web solution company.
Thank you again
After reading the lovely testimonial from Andy Broadly (Islamlar-Villas) I would like to say that is exactly how I felt when I first met you and what made you stand out from the rest of the web designers - and there a few out there!!
It was putting me at ease that you knew exactly what you were doing and that it didn't have to be complicated. Most important when you are talking to a dinosaur on technical web stuff!! Simon did a brilliant job on getting the 'feel' right and Sarah and I are delighted with the finished result. We are pleased to report we are already getting orders in.
Following a recommendation for DDA Web Design, I decided to give them a call as the thought of designing/creating a website ……well where would I start!!
From the first call to Simon, then the follow up meeting with Barbara, they put me at ease.
I was amazed at how quickly and efficiently from receiving my info they had the website constructed, advising me on options & prompting me for the next info they required. Fantastic result!!!
Many thanks Barbara and Simon for all your hard work.
I just wanted to write and say a huge thanks for your work and words of wisdom in getting me professionally represented on the web.
Late nights, fast responses to my questions, and a lot of patience with my numerous wording changes were indeed much appreciated. The changeover of my E-mails, from the domain name I had previously purchased onto your server for hosting, was also made seamless due to you providing out of hours help at the end of the phone.
Now that Simon is full time in the business I wish you both every success for the future, and of course will be recommending your services at every opportunity that represents itself.
Julian Sunley DipPFS
I am so pleased with the website that Barbara and her team have produced for me.
I chose DDA Web Design for several reasons – personal recommendation from people I know, going on the web and looking at the excellent results from Barbara’s work and in particular her commitment to Search Engine Optimisation for your website.
Everyone has complimented me on my website and already after only 4 weeks, SEO is doing really well for me. I now feel so much more confident when handing over my business card, that I have a website of which I am very proud.
Barbara and the team are professional, capable and seem to know very quickly, exactly what you want – my input and disruption to my working day was minimal! Thoroughly recommended!
An excellent end result - the website was very professionally designed and provided as required with some excellent unexpected extra features - overall very pleased with the site and its ability to provide my Clients with ease of use and accessibility to the required information.

We would like to take this opportunity to give a testimonial to Barbara Payne at DDA Web design and her team, as I said this morning, I wanted to send you the testimonial via email to give you the opportunity to click on the link and have a look for yourselves www.wibg.org.uk
DDA Web Design have been fantastic to work with on this project, as a client we found from the very first meeting technical issues were explained in simple terms that we could understand, we told DDA what we wished to achieve and how we wanted this site to work for us, other than giving them a logo, discs of photos, and some copy DDA did the rest.
This website was from start to finish a very painless project thanks to Barbara and her team. We now have a fantastic website we are proud of.
It came within the budget, within timescales ,and looks very professional.
I waited a while before sending you this note simply for the reason that I wanted to see whether your ongoing service was as good as the initial design and installation of my website. I am pleased to say how impressed I am with your organisation. From my initial and ongoing contact with your firm, I have found you to be both courteous and receptive to any queries I have had. You gave me confidence in your ability and a comforting reassurance that you were determined to get it right no matter what.
So finally, I would like to thank you for your professional approach and ongoing service for the website design, the seamless transition when you took over the hosting and for the prompt turnaround of my ongoing requests. I would thoroughly recommend your organisation to anyone looking for a company to add value to their web presence, whether to build and design a website from scratch or revamp their existing site.
Thank you so much for sorting out my website so quickly.
I am sorry it’s taken me so long to finally get you on board. I think that as the whole world of the internet is so confusing to me, I worried that there would be difficulty in the change over.
I couldn’t have been more wrong, it all seemed to be sorted within a day, with lots of communication to let me know what was going on.
It’s also good that I see you regularly at networking, because it will prompt me to do the updates I am forever putting off.
I would definitely recommend your service to everyone else.
Just a short note to say thanks very much for your recent completion of our website, which looks fabulous. It is just the right image that we wanted to portray and I look forward to it being a successful tool in our business growth.
I look forward to a continued relationship with you and would certainly recommend you to any one who wanted a website design or redesign.
Thanks for transforming my Happy2Learn website to give it a fresh new image. I loved my original relaxed and gentle style with soft colours but the time had come for a change.
Now Happy2Learn is vibrant and lively with bright bold colours creating a very positive and upbeat feel. I'm amazed at what you have been able to do without having to start all over again.
