Ministry of Defence / Veterans Golf Event
Rhys- a big thank you from us here at Design Forward UK for your excellent service! We have already recommended you to several of our friends and colleagues who are either thinking of starting their own business, or like us, have had their own business for several years and are daunted by the prospect of creating a whole website from scratch.

Steve - Director
International Volunteer Website Project
UNA Exchange is an international volunteer organisation which sends young volunteers on short and long term community projects around the word. In this way we promote peace, intercultural understanding an personal development. We provide incredible opportunities and we want people to know about them.
As a registered charity we have been based in Cardiff for over 40 years. Like many charities, budgets are tight and spending on the website had been low priority for too many years and we were missing opportunities to connect with people and tell our story. It was time for a change. We searched carefully to find a designer who could deliver the kind of site we were looking for and Rhys immediately impressed.
It took us a while to really understand what we were looking for and Rhys was patient and supportive throughout the process, offering advice and explaining the pros and cons of different options and finding solutions that work for us. Our site had to be fully social media compatible to allow it to evolve, and most importantly allow potential volunteers to find us and get to know us, as well as being able to search for projects easily.
We are delighted with the finished result and feel we have an important new tool enabling us to reach more and more volunteers. Rhys has always responded quickly to questions, kept us up to date with progress and has been very willing to come and discuss issues in person which was a great help. We look forward to continuing our relationship with Rhys as the site and our organisation grows. Check us out at www.unaexchange.org and see for yourself. (Testimonial)
P.Green - Director of UNA Exchange

Massive thanks Rhys
Darren and I are delighted with the site and all your work
(Message received via email)
Great working with Rhys on the design process and delighted with the final product; graphics and structure exactly what we were looking for - looking forward to evolving the site in future (Testimonial)
Jeff Murray - Director of CFW Architects
Composite Products Website Project
We have just gone live and the feedback has been amazing, the site looks great and has exceeded our expectations by some margin. Rhys has been a pleasure to work with and a real asset in getting the web site and brand off the ground. He understood the brief right from the outset and took the time to listen to our feedback and delivered exactly what we asked for. The whole process has been really easy and stress free. A web site is an integral part of any business and I cannot recommend Rhys enough. If you are looking for a web developer who will go the extra mile Rhys is your man.
Mark Day - Director
Vintage Products Website Project
"You have been amazing to me and I would recommend you to anybody as you know - your service is amazing." (Message received 2 years after going live)
Bryn Lewis - Director
NHS Web Project
"I’ve just had a quick look at the website. I think it’s really good. I am very pleased with the work you have done for us."
Martin Ford - Directorate Manager Adult Mental Health - Cardiff & Vale University Health Board. (Comments Via Message/Email)
"We wanted our old website updated. Went to 3 local web designers. Rhys outclassed the competition by far with his professional graphic package & can do attitude. Highly recommend him to you." (Testimonial)
Dr. Neil J. Kitchiner - Principal Clinician & Honorary Research Fellow
"We recently engaged Rhys to update our website. After an initial meeting Rhys very quickly understood what we wanted from the new site and that was captured in the initial design concept.
Rhys managed the process from concept to final website including bringing in a professional photographer, he was responsive throughout and talking through ideas for the website was always an enjoyable experience.
We are delighted with the end result and most importantly the feedback we have received from our clients has been nothing but positive.
We would have no hesitation in recommending Rhys to our clients." (Testimonial)
"I worked with Rhys to design a web site for our Fun Casino Company. I was keen to work with a local Cardiff designer and Rhys offered great advice and a personal level of service that stands him apart from many others. Traffic to our sight is continuing to increase and Rhys has even worked on making improvements after the launch. I will continue to work with Rhys on the development of this and other sites in the future." (Testimonial)
"A colleague recommended Rhys when I decided to set up a website for my dental practice. After a few meetings I was thrilled to see the results! Rhys exceeded my expectations for the website and has continued to offer fantastic support. A retired surgeon I once knew described his successor as having the 3 A s . I asked him what he meant. He replied, ‘Affable, Amenable and Able.’
I would consider Rhys to have these qualities and would not hesitate to recommend him. On a more personal level my daughter battled blood cancer at the tender age of 8. She needed a bone marrow transplant but at the time had no match. My family decided to launch a social media campaign asking people to put their pants on their head and post the picture to raise awareness and donors for the Anthony Nolan Trust. In the summer of 2014 we increased registrations in Wales by 2580%. When Gareth Bale, the World’s most expensive footballer, posted his picture, our facebook page had a total reach of 4.6 million. Rhys was instrumental in the success of the campaign. Without him our daughter would not have found a match. He even donated his time and expertise free of charge. Ask yourself this question, does Rhys sound like the sort of person you could work with?" (Testimonial)
Antiques Website - Online Shop
"Chopping up our family name to become ‘War & Son’ in the summer of 2013, my father Dave Nuwar and I aimed to become one of the premier companies dealing in British medals and military antiques in the UK.
With the creativity of Rhys Welsh’s web design, we started as a small business with an e-commerce platform that we were confident we could grow into. Rhys’ innovation and creativity were instrumental in externalizing our abstract concepts and providing a hands-on, face-to-face service that ensured we shared the same vision; from early logo designs through to glimpses of the initial landing page, we knew instantly that we had made the right choice and invested in the right individual.
Almost immediately after going live with the minimum of fuss, positive feedback started to flood in; here almost 2 years on, we still receive comments that our website is the best and most exciting in the business and we have seen numerous competitors adapt and try to copy the feel of our landing page and our ‘History’ section (see Medals of England and London Medals).
We have now expanded our client base, making sales internationally to Europe, the US and Australia amongst others, and we feel that our website still holds the key to unlocking markets further afield, giving buyers confidence and inspiring them to interact with us. Rhys is always on hand to adapt areas of the site and treat it as an organism that needs to grow and breathe – his simple structures are perfect for building new layers on as the business evolves.
Rhys web design remains a chief reason for our rapid growth and early successes – we won’t forget this fact or his input as we launch into 2015 with fresh ideas and concepts."

International Music Course
Just want to say a mega thanks for everything over the last month or so. My partners are so happy with the course site, have had loads of people commenting.

Health Supplement Brand
"I am getting lots of good feed back on the site. Everyone is very impressed how professional it is and clean which is what we were aiming to achieve. So well done and thank you very much." (Comment/message via Email)
"One of my friends who was proofing the site just sent me the below message- thought I'd share it with you as put a smile on my face tbh!
Oh gosh, I absolutely love the website!!! What gorgeous colours and design and content. I really love it. Well done on this, it's one of loveliest designed sites I've ever seen. I hope this does really well for you, I'm sure it will!" (Comment/message via Email)
" I just wanted to drop you a quick note (now that the madness has subsided) to thank you for all your hard work on our wedding stationary. The design was perfect and the quality and weight of the card exactly what we were looking for. We had so many positive comments and compliments on our invites, place names, menus and order’s of service and that is all down to you. Thanks again for helping me make my deadlines! I don’t know if you use testimonials for your website but I’ve written the below, if you wanted to use it for marketing etc. Rhys Welsh Design: Friendly, efficient, helpful, intuitive and great designs. We couldn’t have asked for more. Just perfect! "
Holiday Rental Website
"We needed a new web-site to advertise a Villa we have in Florida as our old site was really looking tired.
Rhys came to visit us at home, took on board what we needed and came up with a web-site which we are really thrilled with. The web-site is really professional and we feel confident that it will increase bookings for us.
Nothing was too much trouble for him to do and it was a pleasure to deal with him. We also know that if we had a problem that Rhys is only on the other end of the phone to help us.
We would certainly recommend Rhys to anybody looking for a web-site to be created.
RHYS - WE MEANT EVERY WORD OF THIS - IT WAS FUN AND A PLEASURE TO DO BUSINESS WITH YOU."
"We are delighted with the website. It was a pleasure working with Rhys who understood and delivered the design we were looking for. Thank you once again Nina"
Director of KG Hydrocleaning
"Once again, thanks for producing such a professional website. The feed back has been very positive."(Comment/message via Email)
Gary of Stretlaw.co.uk
"At StretLaw we found working with Rhys a pleasure, not a chore - some web designers can be socially 'challenging' as they are often portrayed as speaking a different language - not Rhys. He is approachable and friendly with great technical know-how. He understands clients, asking the correct questions and then implements the site-specifics very well. We had our new website up and running within weeks and are very happy with the end result - more importantly, our clients are, too. We would recommend Rhys, he is reliable, hard working and committed to his clients."
Sally of Sanken SPS
"Sanken Power Systems are a Japanese owned electronics Company based in South Wales. We have had a very basic web presence for a number of years and were looking for a web designer to create a new website for us that presented a more professional company image and was capable of providing our customers with technical product information in an easy to use format.
We found Rhys through Google and were very impressed with the look and feel of his own website and with his diverse portfolio of work. When we met with him he understood our requirements easily, had lots of good ideas and came back with a very reasonable quote for the work.
Rhys was extremely reliable and helpful throughout the project and was happy to visit our offices to discuss progress and demonstrate the content management system once the site was up and running.
We were particularly impressed with how quickly Rhys was able to design and implement our requirements and respond to our requests for changes.
We are absolutely thrilled with the result!
We look forward to working with Rhys in the future to further develop and improve our web presence and have no hesitation in recommending him."

Martin (Community Project funded by Newport County Council)
"You will be the first port of call. Been great working with someone so efficient. Thanks again."
Jonathan Davies (Gwent Hospital)
"Rhys was the most comprehensive and accessible web and graphic designer I have ever worked with. He knew what my audience wanted better than I did and his professional final product was incredibly well received, fitting the design brief perfectly. Rhys was available and easy to contact whenever I had a query or an idea and left me feeling like my projects were in safe and capable hands. I would recommend choosing Rhys Welsh to anyone looking to give their product or site the edge over competitors"
"Thank you Rhys for a pleasant and easy to use service to date.
Director of Listen2Learn
"I think we've cracked the concept thanks to your vision."
Director of StretLaw
"I think I definitely owe you a drink! But seriously, thank you. The format of the site is great – I’m really excited about launching it!!!! You’ve done an amazing job on it Rhys…I’m so pleased!
"Great feedback on site – it’s so refreshing and we (here) are all very pleased. Thanks again for all your help. I’ve logged into your CMS and all seems straight forward"
"Thanks for your help, I was fearing the worst when we decided for a complete re-design and, to be honest, you've made it much easier than we hoped for! So far everyone that we have shown the site to has loved it as well, so we're very happy! If you need any testimonial stuff for your website then just let me know and we'll happily put something together. Thanks again" (Comment/message via Email)

Mark A. Stock of Paternoster Consulting
"Rhys was introduced to me by a Graphic Designer, and recommended very highly as the person to build the website for my company. The results at www.paternosterconsulting.com are absolutley what I was hoping for.
Since getting the site up and running, I've wanted to keep content fresh without constantly relying on a third party to do this for me. Rhys was happy to come to my office and offer a hands-on training session at very reasonable rates. I wouldn't claim to be a content management system expert now, but I'm far more confident than I was before Rhys assisted, and I know that for that last 10% that I can't do, there is a professional and reliable resource just an email / phone call away! No hesitation in recommending Rhys' work to others."

Mark & Sally Letman of Mabelys
Just to say many thanks for your time and effort over the past months working on our website. We couldn't have asked for a better person to deal with our 'first website'! (Comment/message via Email)
Chris of Chris Williamson Photography
"I emailed four different companies in the Cardiff area to get a quote for building a web site. Out of the four I approached the only one who seemed to want my business was Rhys Welsh.
He listened to what I wanted and once we agreed a price (which was very competitive) produced a site very quickly and to the required specifications. His after sales service has, to date, been excellent and I would recommend his services to anyone who needs a professional looking and fully functional web site."
Claire Rodderick of Bargoed Chiropractic
"I found Rhys Welsh website design through google, I had no prior knowledge of him, but I like his style and was impressed by the work he had done which you can view through his website. I have to say that I am thrilled. Rhys is professional and so helpful. We had our initial business meeting to discuss my requirements, within a few days Rhys had created my framework for me, that's all that was left for me to do was send him the written information and Rhys added it to my website. My website was complete within a couple of weeks. I won't hesitate to recommend Rhys to any of my friends or colleagues. He has been also so helpful about recommending tips to help with optimising my website on google, something which I have no idea about. I found Rhys to be value for money, and brilliant advice for anything computer related."
Bradley from Chambers Estate Agents, Cardiff
"Absolutely delighted with it! Have to run it by everyone but personally, love it." (Comment/message via Email)
Nick from Trendy Tags
"They really liked it thought it looked like the website which was cool. the lads Alex & Dan thought it was way more professional and thinks it will definitely draw in more business as it does not look so home made as the old site I had. So all good reviews so far which is really good as I want a more professional image and its now paying off :) Thanks Rhys' (Comment/message via Email)
Committee Member of Cardiff Capitals Inline Hockey Club
