Cockahoop digital marketing & website testimonials

Chris is relatively unique in the web space, being equally adept at the creative and commercial end of the design spectrum. He has taken ownership for the development of the website for our exciting new data roaming proposition. A great team player who I would strongly recommend for making a real difference on marketing and web projects.
I have had the pleasure of working alongside Chris for 6 months and can say without hesitation that he is a first-class professional. He takes great pride in his work, is customer focused and understands just what it takes to introduce innovative ideas within the digital environment. Chris is a great mixture of strategic marketeer and hands-on digital ‘doer’ – he has great web and digital skills and can action the stuff he talks about. What’s more, he is enthusiastic and passionate about the subject, and that makes all the difference.
We commissioned Cockahoop Digital to design and build a website for our new company We had no idea how to even begin building a website and felt out of our depth to even know what was needed and the options available to us. Chris was great at explaining to us the various designs and technical solutions available, in a way we could easily understand, so we could feel confident in making informed decisions. The final result is a clean and slick website. We are very impressed with Chris’s work and would thoroughly recommend him to others.

So … Continue reading Pantone vs CMYK vs RGB
