"When it comes to computer understanding, expertise in Websites and Graphic Design of all types, Jacob Sargent is the expert in this field I would call. For all software and communications, Jacob is the man for the job. His knowledge and experience are vital for all types of businesses and in my case ‘Websites’ where experience and know-how come second to none. All websites need a ‘tweak’ and an update now and then, and when I need that kind of service Jacob is the expert I call."

"I can highly recommend Jacob for his professional and enthusiastic approach to work. He designed me a wonderful new logo for my established business and a whole new fresh bespoke look for my new business cards and promotional Artwork. Nothing was too much trouble, and Jacob was always encouraging and very patient as we collaborated on the project. I am delighted with the end results and have no hesitation in recommending him, and consulting Jacob in the future."

Deborah Schenck

Owner of Nature’s First Aid

"I feel very lucky to have been introduced to Jacob a couple of months ago on a photo shoot. Since then the world has fallen into lockdown and it has not been possible to find work as a photographer. Simply, I cannot praise Jacob enough for his creativity and support helping me set up a new website in these challenging times. No question has not gone unanswered with clarity and patience. He has been the perfect balance of professional expertise and inspiration. I could not be happier with the website he has created for me and I recommend him wholeheartedly. The website he has created speaks for itself."

Maire Oldham

Owner of Malabar Trading

"We were new to online retail and Jacob has really enabled us to adapt and grow our online business. He has helped us create an impactful site with a strong search ranking, worked alongside us to develop both our e-commerce and s-commerce skills and generally helped us find great solutions in this rapidly changing marketplace. I couldn’t recommend Jacob more highly."

Olivia Wood

Founder of OSW Personal Training

"I was fortunate enough to work with Jacob when designing a logo for my Personal Training Company. I came with a jumble of ideas and no real direction (or that I was aware). Jacob made me feel confident in my decisions and was more than capable of bringing them to life. As someone that is meticulous over detail, Jacob was consistently on call to support any queries and provide the keen eye I so very much appreciated. As a new company, I trusted Jacob’s expertise and I am so grateful I made the choice to use him."

Simon Gilmore
