Company: Go Nice
Requirements: Brand Identity, Website Design.
Overview: Pure Design worked with Go Nice initially undertaking the rebranding and corporate identity. The new style was then reflected across their online media with a new website and marketing.
What they said: “From the moment I spoke to Ben and then met him – I immediately felt here is someone I can do business with both now and in future. I know that my web site is going to evolve and wanted to find someone that would help me grow my business through my main trading window of a web site – and it was very important that I found a long term person – that is based here and I can explain my thoughts and ideas and that would understand my needs initially and then work with to evolve the site as my business grows now and for the future.
I found immediately Ben to be responsive, professional and having an immediate understanding of my ideas – so the site was built by Ben – but allowing me influence in its design and structure (which I believe to be very rare) the site was not just picked off the shelf by Ben – also the back-end control was really impressive (something you do not see) I think this simply comes from both experience and having a logical commercial brain – which Ben certainly has. Ben has also been excellent regarding support issues – always responding quickly and efficiently – with solutions – not just re the web site – but other commercial issues. So I would thoroughly recommend Ben and his colleagues – and certainly I and my clients have been very impressed with the site – and I know I have found someone I trust – and will help me grow my business in the future as it has done over the last year. Many thanks Ben” Paul Manion, Director
