“I worked with Smarta Studio on a recent project originating new corporate websites and reconditioning existing ones coincident upon the merger of various brands into one. This was a complex undertaking requiring agility, attention to detail, responsiveness, adaptability, and also a high level of creativity. I am pleased to say that Smarta Studio excelled on all these requirements, and delivered a best-in class service and exceptional web-sites. It was a pleasure working with them, and I would thoroughly recommend them for any website design projects you may be considering.”

“The brief was to develop a website that explained the provenance of my craft Gin business, and to tie it into the location of the distillery in the Yorkshire Dales. I was able to provide a back of a napkin idea of what I had in mind, but the results from Smarta Studio were absolutely fantastic, and fulfilled the brief and some. It is extremely important in the highly competitive world of craft gin production to have an outward profile that conveys the real essence of what you do, and to show why your product stands out from the crowd. Smarta Studio have achieved this for us, and are an exceptional organisation.”

“I have been working with Smarta Studio for the past 12 months and endorse their work and superb customer service. We require regular changes to our site from a design perspective once – twice-a-month, which is always actioned quickly and efficiently. I highly recommend their web building and design service.”

“Smarta Studio have built and maintain our sites daily for the past 18 months. Their brief was to build 3 event websites for our International events and the results were outstanding. Along with continual SEO work and constant updating our websites are page 1 ranked across many search pertaining to keywords in pharmaceutical and pharmacy searches. They are simply some of the best web builders, designers I have had the chance to work with and we continue to work closely with the team today.”

Scott Lloyd
Director, FPS Events

“SmartaStudio produced social media and email marketing campaigns for the lead up to our 2019 events. The marketing campaigns were very effective and drew our customers to the correct areas of our site. Based on 2018’s numbers, with the help of SmartaStudio our total visitor registration count doubled in size and helped us put on our best event yet. Employing SmartaStudio to take over our events online presence was a fantastic decision and I am delighted with the work they have done.”

“I had been looking for a decent website design company for over 3 months and never seemed to get far… it was all about selling more and more products.

I then came across SmartaStudio and they put me onto Ryan, within 1 week I had a brand new site built from scratch, everything I asked Ryan did straight away… very friendly and informative throughout the process, just over the moon with the website and company as well as Ryan… GREAT SERVICE.”

Tim Cruise
Owner, Barrow Landscaping

“We engaged with SmartaStudio to design an exhibitor portal for our customers to access. Historically, we have managed this time-consuming task through an emailed form which our customers complete once they have been contracted and then return to us. The brief was to completely automate this process through an online system via our website and after a few video conferencing meetings with the Smarta Studio team, we have now received a platform that reduces our input by 100%. The clean interface and automated forms that Ryan and his team have built all lead back to a single document that gets updated in real-time and sends direct notifications to our team if and when someone accesses and completes the required forms. Our company has saved over 6 weeks of full-time work through the platform they have built and we can’t thank the SmartaStudio team enough for their continued support and creativity to make this process what it is today.”
