"Thank you for being such a badass this week!"
Having worked with Daryl on multiple projects before, we recently chose to work with him again to rebuild our own site. From a design perspective it was great to work closely on the site in order to find the balance between editorial/copy-heavy pages and a unique, distinct site which works great across all kinds of different devices.
After being closely involved in the process throughout, we transitioned from the old site to a new domain with new pages seamlessly, with all the redirects in place for a smooth launch.
Daryl has been my 'go-to' developer resource in my last two agency positions - the first where I headed up a digital team and now as Account Director at Gasp. I like the fact that I can explain in layman's terms what I need to achieve for a client and he will input and provide guidance into how best we can achieve this. He's very flexible which is essential to support agency workflow. Highly recommended!
I have collaborated with Daryl on a number of client projects where specialist Craft CMS integration and front end development was needed. Daryl takes strategic functional specifications and UX designs we have created for our conversion optimisation clients, and executes the build with a level of understanding and code quality I find to be rare in this industry. Daryl is a triple threat: professional, experienced and enjoyable to work with. I continue to work with him on client projects and would not hesitate to recommend to others.
It's been a true pleasure working with Daryl! He’s been very responsive and resourceful. We're more than happy with the final result and wouldn't hesitate to work with him again. Highly recommended!
We hired Daryl because of the level of trust and confidence we have built with him. He was flexible and able to fit in with our working methods. The result is a much more sophisticated, intelligent and superior website to the one it replaced. His work is true to our original designs and it stands out as a unique piece of branding work that we're proud of.
When another developer dropped out of a project at the last minute, I reached out to Daryl with a challenging build and an aggressive timeline. Not only was Daryl able to complete the build with ease, he was responsive to my (numerous) requests for revisions and was clear in communicating his needs when my instructions were unclear. The result is a beautiful, technically sound and well organized website.
We needed someone to turn a set of static HTML/CSS templates into a working Craft website, and Daryl delivered with flying colours.
He was really easy to work with, and delivered everything as and when promised — something of a rare treat in the freelancing world in my experience.
As a complete novice to website creation and design, Daryl was invaluable at helping with the setup, creation and design of the site. I was delighted with the final result and several clients have commented on the professionalism of the site – particularly on the optimisation for mobile, something I would never have considered as a requirement! I would thoroughly recommend working with Daryl.
It’s always been a pleasure working with Daryl. He stepped in when our team needed an extra pair of hands and he integrated into the studio immediately. He produced clean, logical code and was flexible enough to work with our chosen frameworks without any hesitation. An all-round top bloke!
Working with Daryl is a dream. From the initial briefing through to completion, he is constantly thinking and there to help. Not only does Daryl offer excellent ideas, he adds value where possible - always ensuring the end result is the best it can be. He is approachable, knowledgeable, skilled and will continue to be one of my most trusted suppliers.
Daryl is a rare combination of intelligent, calm, and approachable. These attributes, plus his obvious developer skills, make it easy to include him as part of an extended team or equally work with him exclusively - depending on client and agency requirements. Whilst I can’t claim to understand all of what he does, I can confidently say the product and effect of his work is faultless. Happy to recommend him; just don’t take up all of his time.
It’s a real pleasure to work with Daryl. He always displays total professionalism, great attention to detail and I know that I can rely on him to get the job done. I have no hesitation in endorsing his skills.
As an Account Director at an advertising agency, I assemble many creative teams with a variety of freelancers and Daryl is one of the best. I have had the pleasure of collaborating with Daryl on multiple large and small projects, and he consistently exceeds expectations. He is reliable, thoughtful, a quick study, thorough, works quickly, communicates very clearly, is a team player and now, also a friend. When I am in need of a Craft freelancer, Daryl is always my first choice.
Daryl demonstrates pure design-led professionalism with respect to the projects we complete together. He is a solid character with drive and determination. I look forward to working with him on new projects which the future will surely bring.
Daryl performed an excellent job on the recently implemented project. The transition period was well communicated, it was well executed in that it delivered on time and well supported throughout the transition. It is this latter element that was particularly important to me given our lack of IT systems knowledge, yet at the same time the importance it plays on our business. Daryl was on hand to support the minor issues that arose even calling me throughout the evening to ensure everything was fully functional before work started the following day. Added to all this, Daryl is easy to do business with, honest, conscientious and fairly priced.
Daryl quickly understood the requirements for this website to host multiple companies under one roof. The site responds really well and we were impressed with his problem solving. Really happy with the outcome.
Amazing - you are a total legend!
We are utterly delighted with the website Daryl's built for us and working with him was a pleasure. He cooperated with us to create a site which is user-friendly & intuitive; it's exactly what we wanted. Our members are now booking events with us through the site and it is being used daily. We could not recommend him more highly.
I liked Daryl's approach to the brief I sent out. He understood very quickly what I needed in terms of functionality and the look of the site I wanted. Daryl's approach to the task once we had awarded him the contract was to work with me in building the site in stages. If something didn't quite work for me, he was very quick to adjust and fine tune so it had the look and feel of what I wanted.
One part of the site was proving to be very tricky in that we had a lot of information to communicate but wanted to get it over without to pages being too large or spread out over several pages. Daryl suggested an approach; it worked perfectly and is now one of the best parts of the site.
I am not a web expert and don't know the jargon that web developers use. I'm glad to say that Daryl was unfazed by my lack of knowledge and talked me through each stage of the process until we ended up with the finished product that I am very pleased with. His approach was collaborative and supportive throughout and I was never made to feel that I was asking too much or that I would just have to put up with what was given.
The website has been complemented by businesses on the Park and by others working in the Business Improvement Community.
I hired Daryl to redesign my portfolio. Daryl listened to what I needed, offered some great ideas and was very quick to draw up wire frames to accompany his proposals. I was really happy with the result and Daryl went the extra mile by enabling me to update the portfolio by myself in future. Thoroughly recommended!
Daryl has now helped our businesses create 3 websites. He has been diligent and very patient with our lack of technical knowledge but high demands for functionality. I would have no hesitation in recommending him for his excellent work.
Daryl is an excellent person to work with. He provided an excellent service, ongoing explanations and great IT support. I have recommended him to other colleagues and know that regardless of who hires Daryl, they will receive superb support.
You've been by far and away the most efficient developer I've ever worked with!
Daryl surpassed all our expectations. We gave him a long lengthy wish list and then he gave us even more. He is very professional and extremely knowledgeable in his field. Working with him on this project was extremely easy and highly productive. The whole operation was quick, efficient and well explained throughout. The club members are delighted with the results and as Chairperson I feel really proud every time I log in.
Daryl has served us brilliantly, turning our early ideas for a new website into reality. His professionalism, timely delivery, sound advice and quiet confidence has been much appreciated. He responded to our requests swiftly and with cheerful pragmatism, design flair and technical skill.
We are delighted with the end result and look forward to working with Daryl longer term to expand and develop the site further.
