Testimonials

Some people say having a testimonials section is a little pointless as we’re unlikely to add negative comments that clients may have given… The thing is we haven’t had any – you’ll have to trust us on that one! We do think it’s useful for you to read what our clients have to say. Here’s just a small selection of them…

  • Alan was very helpful and knowledgeable about converting some complex and technical ideas into an attractive and user-friendly website. We would thoroughly recommend Dare to Think.

  • Thank goodness for Dare to Think. Having spent ten years in print journalism, the internet was a big confusing jungle, so having someone there to advise me through page designs and explain in simple terms how to add content to the blog has been invaluable. Plus the speed of the work, at such high quality, has been magnificently impressive.

  • Dare to Think are great to work with, with their patience and direct understanding of our needs. They realised the Emanuel von Baeyer website with a very good eye for design and functionality. We have worked together for many years. We would like to thank them for their fast and reliable work and for always being there for us – the communication is great! In addition to that, Dare to Think helped a lot with technical queries, such as web-hosting and updates to the site. Their service was fully adapted for our business needs of our sophisticated clients.

  • I found Dare to Think via a friend; I had had endless problems with 2 previous developers, one took 10 months to complete our site, then when wanting to update a year later I chose a second company, hoping to avoid the problems I had before. It was even worse, with endless non-communication and lack of understanding of what was wanted. Dare to Think was a revelation; within an incredibly short time, our site was ready and a million times better. Just through email, I described what I needed, and they just completely got it, understood what we wanted, then got on with it really fast. The communication was excellent. I am sure I drove them mad, but the professionalism was superb; clear, factual, helpful. Suggestions were sensible, innovative and tactful. I can’t recommend them highly enough. Don’t go anywhere else.

  • When we gave our initial brief to Dare to Think to create a truly social media wine, his task in creating the website was a tough one. We needed to make a compelling site with great content in various mediums (although mainly video) and Alan needed to get the whole thing intuitively navigable AND to have the feel of a ‘hand-made’ artisanal brand. It was a tough brief and he did a great job, not only in building the site from scratch but also helping us think about other aspects of SEO,  social media (such as integration with Facebook and YouTube) as well as advise on running competitions and using Twitter etc. Nearly six months later we went live and the site and the campaign has been every bit as successful as we hoped it would be. Thanks to Alan at Dare to Think.

  • If you want a great website or blog delivered with speed, precision and built by someone who completely knows what they’re doing – Alan Green is your man. Look no further. He is the best web designer and developer I’ve ever used.

  • Having worked with Dare to Think previously we had no doubts that they could provide an exemplary service. Our standards are very high and turnaround very quick so we needed a company that was going to be pro-active rather than re-active. Dare to Think were all we expected and more besides. They went the extra mile without asking and showed us yet again that they are miles ahead of the competition when it comes down to detail, ideas and working to a budget. They get 10 out of 10 every time … oh and they’re very nice people too.

  • When I needed to develop a new website Dare to Think was recommended to me by a friend and ex colleague. They made the task of developing the website very easy and extremely rewarding. I started the project with a few simple ideas that he developed far beyond my initial expectations. His explanation of the process and his implementation are excellent but most of all he offers initiatives and recommendations that make the ordinary exceptional.

  • The guys at Dare to Think probably know more than you. Which is actually what you need when you want your website being built properly. Alan and the team took the designs for mine and made the site work the way it needed to – smoothly, efficiently, and intelligently. They listened to what I wanted and suggested improvements. There were no problems, no dramas. Well, there may have been but any that did arise were silently sorted out their side. Which meant I wasn’t bothered with endless calls and emails about technical stuff I know little about. They gave me choices about certain routes and options, but as they are the experts I put everything in their hands and asked them to do what they felt would work the best. Add to this the fact they are nice people, deliver when they say and charge extremely fairly, then you have to have a damn good reason for not going with them. Top chaps.

  • Thank you to Alan! Alan quickly and efficiently created a beautiful website with much patience and good humour given my serious lack of computer expertise. Dare to Think was recommended by a friend and I am extremely happy with the results.

  • Dare to Think offered a fantastic personalised and efficient service. The PREDICT consortium could not rate Alan highly enough.

  • Thanks to Dare To Think, our idea of building a worldwide fishing and travel guide isn’t still just an idea kicking around in someone’s brain. What we have now is a fully-formed website, the quality of which has exceeded our expectations. Alan has been a pleasure to work with throughout the process – full of ideas, recommendations, suggestions and problem-solving nous (not to mention a healthy dose of patience). His rare ability to be both creative and logistically astute make him the perfect man for this kind of work. On top of that, the speed with which the work was delivered, at such excellent value, has been hugely impressive. I would recommend Dare To Think without a second’s hesitation.

  • The new website is just what we wanted, elegant, clear and straightforward, but with lots of information and the facility to add more. It has received lots of favourable comments from the organ world. We are most grateful to Dare to Think for their design and their guidance.

    Dominic Gwynn | Goetze & Gwynn
  • We’d been thinking about updating our website for some time and living in France found it difficult to source a designer locally that could deliver what we were after. We approached Alan to see if he would take on our project and despite being nervous about having never met or talked face to face all our fears quickly disappeared. I’m sure at times he was frustrated by our lack of technical expertise but he was kind enough never to voice it openly and was endlessly patient with our never-ending changes, amendments and additions as time went by. Our new site is a complete departure from the old one but is so much more dynamic, interactive and up to date thanks to Alan’s advice. Just goes to show that you can achieve a great result at a distance thanks to technology and the right person at the end of it!

  • Myriad are one of Europe’s leading manufacturers of Retail Display equipment however our website was looking very jaded and dated, Dare to Think understood the brief to create a clean, modern, simple but effective website to promote a range of security equipment to Retailers, Distributors and Shop Designers throughout Europe. Since the new site went live we have had nothing but praise for how easy it is to navigate and find the right solutions.

  • Dare to Think really helped get our new B2B wine business website off the ground. We thought that setting up the website would be relatively straight forward but we clearly hadn’t thought everything through and this is were Dare to Think really came to the fore. They came up with several version options and really helped get us the result we wanted. Not only that, but they also helped set up the hosting and email etc. and this is where the added value really came in. They are smart and patient and I can highly recommend them (and intend to use them for another business we are setting up!).

    Stephen Cronk | VertuVin
  • We cannot recommend Dare to Think high enough. We had been too busy to update our site. The job turning into one of those nagging nightmare projects no-one wanted to touch. They came along, picked up all the pieces of our previous false starts and produced a finished site in a matter of a few weeks – A pretty much painless process. Will be using Dare to Think again.

    Philip Slade | t7F London
  • As a long-standing British manufacturer, we wanted a web-site which was going to reflect the quality, integrity and value of our products, whilst at the same time being contemporary, user friendly and informative. Dare to Think understood the brief perfectly and became a true partner as we modernised our site, which, although it served its purpose in its day, had become somewhat dated and antiquated. Most importantly our customers have enjoyed visiting the site, describing it as “excellent”, “great”, “beautiful and helpful”, with others “impressed with the speed and quality of the images and catalogue downloads”. Alan has been a pleasure to work with and I am looking forward to continuing our partnership as we continue to maximise the potential that our website has to offer between us.

  • Alan, of Dare to Think, and I worked on a series of challenging bids and assignments, his sharp insight into exactly extensive design knowledge blended perfectly with sheer hard work to deliver success every time. A pleasure to work with and great team player.

    Gunveer Mahandru | IconZest
  • Dare to Think have been nothing short of very impressive. They deliver under pressure and truly understand online communication. I wouldn’t hesitate to work with them again, bravo!

  • Dare to Think were recommended by a business contact after I’d expressed dissatisfaction with the service we were receiving from a London Design Agency. Our enquiry was dealt with expeditiously and precise requirements discussed in considerable depth, by both email and telephone, resulting in the production of designs that met our brief, and more, within three days. We found the service both exemplary and value for money and will have no hesitation in using them in the future.

    Martin Worby | Out There Films LLP
  • We have used Dare to Think a few times now. Always eager to help and keen to understand our issues. The most recent project was delivered on time and bang on budget. We have no hesitation in recommending Alan and his crew…

    Philip Slade | Path Worldwide
  • I contacted Dare to Think to design a website that reflected my work as a photographer. They took my initial rambling ideas for the brief and really ran with them, providing me with superb variations of initial layouts before arriving with a fresh, contemporary design that has really enhanced my business, and increased sales. A terrific agency who are a pleasure to work with, they have a clear and patient understanding of the clients requirements – a personal service and one that I would wholeheartedly recommend.

  • We found Dare to Think incredibly knowledgeable, easy to work with, reliable, professional and talented. Their design background, attention to detail and invaluable advice helped to shape our website and produce better results. Given the breadth of support, advice and sheer professionalism Dare to Think provide, they are excellent value for money.

  • The results that Dare To Think achieved with the Great Food Club website are truly exceptional. They listened attentively to what we wanted to achieve and then made it happen, all the while being extremely responsive. All questions and issues were addressed instantly. They do not over-promise but do over-deliver. I couldn’t ask for anything more and can’t recommend Dare To Think highly enough. I look forward to working with them in the future.

    Matt Wright | Great Food Club
  • Dare to Think were fantastic to work with on zoofish.co.uk. They understood exactly what we asked them to do and then recommended extra features and functionality above and beyond the brief to enhance our offering. Their knowledge of the online industry and their speed at understanding what we were trying to do was beyond belief and a real credit to their abilities. I almost don’t want to share how good they were and keep this gem of an agency all to myself… believe me, a good and cost effective online agency with integrity and a work ethic to match is a rare find! I can’t recommend them enough.

    Steve Villiers | Zoofish
  • Dare to Think were really helpful in developing an e-bulletin and newsletter, as lawyers we are pretty clueless when it comes to such matters and Alan took us through the process with great understanding and patience. The service was very prompt and was fantastic value for money and I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Dare to Think.

    Michael Farrelly | Starr & Partners LLP
  • We went to Dare to Think with a concept which was original and comprehensive … And they succeeded in fulfilling our requirements, well beyond our expectations…their tireless backup, and no nonsense approach, has won our respect and admiration … We are delighted to recommend Dare to Think to our friends and colleagues.

    Collette Hynes | ETTE London
  • This was our first website. We found working with Alan was a good experience. He explained the principles very carefully and was painstaking in attempting to achieve a site that would meet our (rather exacting) design standards. Not only were we very pleased with the site, so were the artist and the gallery that had commissioned us as curators and organisers. We would work with Alan again and will recommend him to other clients.
