Amanda Williams, Wildgrouse

Angie was responsive, straight-forward, fast and detail oriented. She built EXACTLY what was in my design with surprisingly few exceptions. I am incredibly proud of our new website and it would not have been possible without her responsiveness, speed and can-do attitude.

J.Nichole Smith, Working With Dog

Angie worked with us to produce the Suffolk Learning Disability Partnership website, a niche and somewhat complex site intended to be informative and accessible to all. Angie was able to take this brief and produce an engaging, accessible & dynamic website.

Max Clark, Accessible information Project Lead for ACE Anglia

Angie was very knowledgeable and honest about what would work best to meet our requirements. Sara has strong design skills that worked very well in combination with Angie’s technical skills. It was important to us that the web designer understood our charity aims and ethos and worked with us to achieve our aims. We felt confident that they would do this and we were right!

Jayne Davey, Suffolk User Forum

I’m looking for more from a web designer than just building a great website For example, advice about different options and the implications of my choice or getting a realistic estimate of the cost of a piece of work and knowing you’ll be charged fairly. As a ‘tech-know-nothing’ it is particularly important to me to work with someone I feel I can trust, am confident has the right skills and who I know will provide value to my business. Angie Vale at Purple Hippo is that person.

Alistair Winch, Suffolk Artlink

The new website has made a huge difference. We're having more people register to receive news from the project and the integration with MailChimp has made it much easier to maintain our contacts list. Users are also searching and finding research publications and booking training through the site. It's really made things much simpler.

Becky Parsons, Essex Autonomy Project

From the first meeting it was clear that Angie would take on the project lead role, and pull me through it. A previous attempt had faltered due to my own lack of time and focus to fulfil this role. I couldn't have asked for more and Angie was very patient when things stalled due to my being too busy or waiting for third party applications to be updated to my satisfaction.

Martin Pike, Lattice Lodge

Angie has been very helpful throughout the whole process, not only building a superb new website which will help drive my company forwards, but also giving me her time to explain certain aspects so I can further my own knowledge of the new site. A truly professional and efficient service, thank you for everything!
