“Extremely impressive”

I have known and worked with James at Short Fuse for a number of years and have always been delighted with his work, in particular his creative ability and skill using both Adobe Photoshop and WordPress which is extremely impressive. As important as the excellent work produced by James is the ease in which he his able to interpret, understand and develop conceptual written or design ideas as part of a creative team to fulfil my objectives.I have no hesitation recommending James to any company or individual who requires any kind of creative input for a project they may be considering.

“Usable on different platforms”

We needed a user friendly website that would be usable on different platforms and that’s what we got. James designed, uploaded and set up the site with the forms and information we needed. A few months later and we had a problem, and James was there again. A quick email to him and within a matter of hours all was corrected. Thank you James for a good service.
