I have found Rae a real pleasure to work with.

From the outset she has been exceptionally responsive and professional; she fully understood my requirements, and delivered the perfect website for my new business. Whilst taking my ideas on board, she also came up with some fantastic new ideas and concepts I hadn't considered.

She provided assistance with the copy of the site and again, her service in this area was excellent.

I would highly recommend and would like to thank her for an excellent finished product.

GWD came highly recommended and they exceeded expectations. Rae and Richard are an absolute pleasure to work with and delivered exactly what we were looking for in our re-brand and new website.

They were incredibly easy to work with and managed to extract clarity from three voices and opinions and build a site we are all delighted with. The whole process was structured to perfectly suit our requirements and timescales, and was achieved with endless patience, humour and professionalism.

They know what they are doing, and they do it extremely well. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend them for a moment.

Thanks, Rae and Richard, for all your hard work, sound advice and continued support.

GWD has been my ‘go to’ for my websites over the past five years and they’ve  pulled ‘awesome’ out of the bag yet again with their design of Rock and Roll Therapy site.

Rae and Richard  are the dream team, no hassle, no sweat - they take care of everything both technical and creative.

I continue to recommend GWD to my clients and friends because I know they too will be blown away by the service they receive.

As a bit of a ‘technophobe’ I’m really pleased we chose Richard and Rachelle to create our website.  Both have the patience of saints and never let you feel inadequate or stupid just because you don’t understand something.  Everything is explained clearly in plain English. 

All they really got to work from at the start was information about what we wanted to achieve – an intuitively easy to follow website, suitable for all ages, especially older people, to use.  We then just explained the feel or sense we wanted to convey when people actually looked at our site, and they came up with the beautiful design that totally meets our needs. 

As this is a new business, we went through several panics about how our website functioned.  Richard and Rachelle were always there, on the end of the telephone, or for meetings person to person, in order to help us get it right.  They certainly have a very ‘client centred’ approach, and seem always to be prepared to go that extra mile to ensure we are happy with the outcome. 

Over and above the website design, we’ve also had lots of excellent advice about how to social network.

So, thank you both for the wonderful job you have done, it is a real pleasure to work with you both.

So very glad that I contacted Gloucestershire Web Designs, aka 'The House of Strauss', for my Hypnotherapy and Psychotherapy website. This business is run by a very lovely husband and wife team who have offered exceptional service right from my first contact.

The whole process of creating my own website was very daunting to me and I only had a very basic idea of what I  wanted. However Rachelle was so approachable, patient and encouraging throughout and the end result has exceeded my expectations.

I would highly recommend Gloucestershire Web Designs, they were definitely money well spent for me as I have a highly professional website that really stands out from my competitors. Rachelle  was not only meticulous in her design work, but also provided valuable advice throughout and I felt able to be as fussy as I needed to be, without feeling like a burden. I was also given a very useful and concise tutorial on using WordPress, so that I can make edits to my site and post blogs.

I would not hesitate to recommend this business.

Gloucester Web Designs were recommended to me by an artist- who has a sophisticated and beautifully designed website designed by the designers Richard and Rachelle.

I was extremely happy and satisfied with the professionalism and understanding they demonstrated.

They made every hard step seem effortless with their well-structured, disciplined work ethos.

I would very much recommend working with them to anyone.

I am extremely content with how my website looks like and how they handled all of my requests.

I had been looking for a web designer for quite some time before being introduced to Rae and Richard.  They came highly recommended and I soon understood why!

They are reliable honest and a pleasure to work with. 

I had very specific requirements for my site and after just a couple of conversations they were able to put together a mock up for my site. 

It is great to work with people who listen and try to give you what you want, I cannot recommend the house of Strauss enough.

For the launch of our new enterprise, we needed quite a specific website in a directory format. Rachelle and Richard completely understood our concept and managed to turn my vague, and rather comical sketch, into a living interactive directory website. Keeping us informed at every stage, they listened to our ideas and thoughts as the website progressed and provided sound advice.

It was very important for us to update our website ourselves on a regular basis without having to resort to asking for specialist help. The website is easy to maintain with a user friendly dashboard enabling us to add courses and update our news section.

Rachelle and Richard explain things in a very simple way enabling all abilities to understand the intricacies involved in web design. I would highly recommend them for your website needs; whether a one page hobby site to a multi-page complicated set up. They are thoroughly nice people too!

Rachelle and Richard go the extra mile, nothing is too much trouble, they just get on with it.

My website is fantastic and much better than I thought it would be, this is evidenced by customers complimenting me on how easy it is to navigate around the site.

Feel free to ring me and I’ll confirm what a hard working team they are - 01608 674700

Having tried to SEO our own website without much success we talked to Rachelle from Gloucestershire Web Designs about our website and optimization and how improvements could be made.

She was very honest about our current site telling us about its good points and bad points and some interesting detail about what Google looks for and how it operates.

We asked her to rebuild our site to make it look slightly more slick and to improve our web presence for given search terms. As we work in the financial industry we realised that we were giving her a pretty tall order as we would be competing with firms who effectively had limitless budgets compared to our own.

In the course of only 3-6 months we now have a website that comes up on the first page for every search term we wanted to target and for some terms, we are the very first hit.

I cannot speak highly enough Rachelle and her ability to produce results.
