"It was an absolute pleasure to work with Ben at Rather Inventive. I wanted a clean, snappy, simple website, super easy to navigate so people could very quickly find out who I am, what I do - and why, plus how I can help. Ben instantly understood my offering and what I wanted to convey. I left a lot of the design to Ben as I trusted his instincts and his expertise, I simply gave him the brand guidelines, copy and images, then Ben created this fanastic website, adding his own twist." Claire Walmsley-Moss (CWM Marketing and Communications)

Thanks so much !! :)" Abi Unwin (Abigail Jane Coaching)
