Discover London On Foot UNIQUE PROGRAMME OF LONDON WALKS
“Annick at The Rooster has added immensely to the effectiveness of my small operation through designing a logo/brand identity and building a website for me. Not only has she designed a site that works brilliantly and for my customers (I have had so many compliments), but she has helped me focus more clearly on what precisely I am selling. She took the time to understand my business and my customers, and to reflect this in both design but especially copy. This has resulted in a website that is easy to find and then to navigate, looks professional yet still reflects the personal nature of my business. It was also wonderful to work with someone who was not obsessed with the technology, but yet obviously really knows her stuff! ”
Diana Kelsey, Founder – Discover London On Foot
