We are very pleased with the website created by Catfish. It not only looks great, but it is easy to update and maintain ourselves. Very pleased. Exactly what we wanted. Thanks Jane.
L. Burtenshaw - March 2018
Air Testing Ltd
What can I say? You made the whole experience of revamping my website from daunting to a pleasure. You were fantastically easy to work with and nothing was too much trouble. Thank you!
Alastair Miles - Opera Singer
My website was in drastic need of a revamp and modernisation and I have been completely thrilled by the transformation that Jane has wrought. Despite all the photos, YouTube video clips and CD excerpts I threw at her, she remained unfazed, and dealt with my technical ignorance of the web-building process with great patience and humour!
Alastair Miles - March 2018
Alison Miles - Author & Illustrator
Jane was the perfect find for me, and I didn’t have to look too far as she had designed my husband’s website a few years earlier. We have very different professions and needed two totally different vibes. Jane hit the target perfectly both times. I am thrilled with the balance that Jane has achieved between making my website both fun — a must as a children’s author and illustrator —and classy. I love Jane’s originality, adore her choice of colours and am thoroughly impressed by her inventiveness. I am very proud of my website and have received nothing but praise for its appearance and functionality. Thank you, Jane.
Alison Miles - February 2022
My main requirement was a website that showcased the high-end projects my company undertakes, and that is exactly what I ended up with. To realise this Jane made it clear that we needed to rebrand and get a photographer on board. Her team is extraordinarily professional, and I am extremely impressed by their creativity and attention to detail. I felt in safe hands with Catfish and very pleased that I followed the advice they gave. They are now working on a video for me which is very exciting. An excellent agency that delivers.
Alan Nash, Managing Director - March 2019
Angel + Blume
Thank you so much Jane for our lovely new website. I am delighted with the design and it was wonderful that you understood what we were trying to achieve from the beginning. You made the whole process very easy for us and we have had fantastic feedback on the site. I am looking forward to working with you on the next phases, now that I am so enthused by our website!
Cate Burren - November 2015
I want to thank you for the amazing website that you created for us - so quickly and at such a reasonable cost. We had previously been using a do-it-yourself website for some time. You picked up our brief very quickly and came up with virtually the finished article we are running today. I was impressed that you gave us all the codings so that we can make minor amendments ourselves as needed. Our business has doubled since we started with your new website - what better recommendation can you get than that? And it looks as though it will double again next year. Your website is one of the main reasons. It was a pleasure working with you.
John A de Bruyne - October 2015
We approached Jane at Catfish for our first website and were not really sure what to expect. Two things happened. Firstly, we ended up with a professional, targeted and tailored website which looked incredible. Secondly, we experienced substantial growth in our business. After a few years, we decided it was time for an update and given the success of the first experience my expectations were high. The wonderful thing about working with Jane is the hands-on, “nothing-is-too-much-trouble” outlook which just makes the whole process fluid and easy. Despite changing the brief on several occasions, constant phone calls and sudden changes she is always responsive, accommodating and professional. In short, an above-and-beyond company who will always go the extra mile for the client. Even upon completion, I know I can always call Jane with any amendments and she is always friendly and efficient.
John A de Bruyne - June 2017
Thank you Jane for our brand new website. This not only looks great but is easy to navigate and very easy for us to keep updated. Thanks for all your help and advice in helping us to achieve exactly what we wanted and in a relatively short time scale.
Joy Maddison - April 2018
The Catfish team worked closely with us during the whole website design and build process and were very proactive and professional throughout. We are delighted with the service we've received from them, they had great design ideas and all work was received on time and expectations were managed well. We have no hesitation in recommending Catfish to others.
Louise O'Farrell - April 2019
Blossom and Bow
We are absolutely thrilled with the beautifully sleek website that Catfish produced for our online party business. It is exactly what we wanted and more!
Rachel and Jessica Thompson - June 2017
Blue Summer House
Working with Jane from Catfish was an excellent experience. She always steers one through the pros and cons of different elements of ones ideas and the workability of them from the users perspective. I loved the design and colours and it was delivered on time on budget. So no need to worry about whether you’ll be able to afford it. Professional as always with an easy to manage website.
Nicki Glen, Owner - March 2019
Braithwaite and Johnson
This is second website Jane Horwood has completed for me and what can I say, repeat business speaks volumes. Catfish are my go to company and Jane delivered just what we asked for and within our budget. Moreover she is highly creative, very responsive and did an excellent job of adjusting content and presentation as required within a tight timescale.
We approached Jane at Catfish in November 2014 to design a new business to business and business to consumer website. We went live in February 2015 and by May we were on the first page of a google search for Fudge and had a three-fold increase in website visits.
Nigel Baker, Managing Director - April 2015
Cambridge Chauffeur Punts
I was very pleased with my new website. Jane was very helpful from start to finish and can produce a great looking site according to your budget. Thanks for all your help Jane.
Matthew Marks, Managing Director - February 2022
Cambridge Coaching Consultancy
Working with Jane Horwood from Catfish Web Design to create a website for Cambridge Coaching Consultancy was a really positive experience. Jane immediately understood what I wanted to achieve for my target audience of Cambridge women and was able to translate my ideas into a clear, fresh, modern design. This is exactly the image I wanted and I’ve had some great feedback already. The site is easy to navigate and I love being able to edit and update the content myself. Thank you, Jane, for your very creative input, friendly but professional support and consistently excellent level of service.
Cambridge Gynaecology Centre
I am delighted with your speed and efficiency and the end result which is clean, professional and friendly.
Cambridge Marketing Consultancy
I can't recommend Jane highly enough for her work as a web designer. I have worked with Jane on a variety of web projects over the last 2 years, including my own, and both my clients and I are delighted with the websites she's designed. Her websites not only look fantastic but perform brilliantly online, generating significant leads and an excellent return on investment for my clients. She approaches every project with immense passion, creativity and professionalism, and her experience really helps to steer the projects in a way that ensures an effective result for each client.
Nicolle Halksworth - June 2016
Cambridge Physiotherapy Clinic
Jane and the Catfish team produced a fantastic new website for us. The new look design has been greatly complemented by our clients and has also advanced our social media presence. I highly recommend Jane and her associates who are easy to work with and extremely efficient. Having a good up to date website will definitely enhance your business presence - so don't delay call Catfish today!
Anne-Marie Melloy - June 2019
Jane at Catfish has done an amazing job with a refresh of our website. I cannot recommend her more highly - very creative and responsive and was able to translate our vision into a new website that we are thrilled with. Many thanks for a job well done!
Natalie Langdon - March 2016
Cambridge Sports Therapist
Within a weeks of my revamped website being live, I was appearing on page one of Google for some really relevant keyword searches. As well as good ranking, I have a really professional and credible web presence now.
Jane at Catfish was brilliant when we recently had our new website designed. She is lovely and very easy to work with, comes up with refreshing ideas and ensures that all bases are covered. She made sure that the project was finished in a timely manner and that all our requirements were met. The new website has turned out exactly how we wanted it; it is fresh and mobile responsive and we just love the way it looks. And as we have seen a real surge in enquiries via the website, our prospective clients must like it too! Thank you.
Anthonine Arts-Zetteler - September 2016
Cambridge Women's Aid
We are very grateful to Jane at Catfish for our lovely website. When we first contacted her we didn’t have a firm idea about what we wanted or how it should look. Thanks to her guidance, support and suggestions coupled with endless patience, we have ended up with a website we are proud of.
Angie Stewart - March 2017
Catfish are efficient, skilled and straightforward. Their approach is embodied by their terms of business which are concise, reasonable and jargon free.They understand small businesses (being one themselves) and work on a personal level. Jane was unfailingly helpful, she knew how to realise my better ideas and tactfully steer me away from less good ones. She was also extremely patient with a certain amount of finicking around on my part.
Rod Campbell-Taylor - June 2018
I have been very pleased with the services offered by Catfish on my recent relaunch of our Association's website. We had many complex areas to deal with including secure databases and members area as well as the area for the general public. The Catfish team were very friendly and professional and the quality of service was exceptional from design right through to the technical project management aspects. We had very tight deadlines and very specific needs and all of this was delivered on time and with excellent quality. Feedback from our members is very positive on the new site.
Lorna Winter - August 2016
We love the new CARA website. It's really easy to use and to add or change information when we need to, and it looks great on mobile phones and computer screens Thanks Catfish for all your support - we appreciated the way you worked with us and responded to our needs and suggestions to get it right.
Helen Parr, Director - November 2016
I am very happy with our revamped website and the end result is exactly as I had envisaged. The content management system & database has exceeded my expectations with its ease of use and functionality. Thank you for all your help & advice along the way and for your efficiency completing the project. I hope to work with you again as our business grows further down the line.
I highly recommend Catfish Web Design to anyone looking to update their website. Jane has been extremely helpful and professional throughout the process and continues to provide support when we need it. I especially appreciated the clear and prompt communication we received during the planning stages, as the result of this is a design which meets the needs of our target audience effectively, is accessible and aesthetically pleasing. The results after a few months show that the new site has allowed us to better engage with existing clients and attract others. Thank you Catfish!
Mikala Hitchen, Front of House Assistant - December 2020
CJ Executive Coaching
Jane is a pleasure to work with. Wonderfully creative, responsive, fast, efficient, thorough and original - she ensured the process from the initial creation of our brand to designing the website was seamless. Jane took the time both to understand what we wanted and explain her thinking behind different options offered. She visually reflected our messages in her design and shared her learning about the latest trends and how to maximise website optimization for both the business and the customer. She was mindful of costs and business priorities. We have had excellent feedback that the website is crisp, clear, professional, engaging and easy to navigate on various devices. I highly recommend Jane.
Caroline Johnston - March 2017
We approached Jane at Catfish to re-design the ClearPlex website (now the second company website she has created for us), as the design company we had used previously had been unable to translate our concept into reality or implement the functionality we required, and left us disappointed. In less than 2 weeks, Jane had fixed the functionality issues, such as the contact form and social media feed not working, added the parallax movement and features we had wanted, and launched a highly professional, fantastic-looking website. Her skills and expertise, as well as an ability to understand exactly what we were after really solved a huge problem for us and helped us turn things around quickly, and as a result, we now have enquiries coming through on almost a daily basis, when we hadn’t had a single one in months! Thank you, we’re thrilled!
Chrissy Kovach - September 2016
Coach House Health Clinic
Jane built our new clinic web site at Coach House Health Care and was super easy (and helpful) to work with. The finished product was slick and great looking and well recieved. Jane is a great collaborator.
Charles Pollington - April 2021
Coach You (2015 revamp)
Jane is a web designer who listens. Jane gets to the heart of your brand, nailing the creativity first time. Incredibly efficient in moving the process forward and tremendously patient. Absolutely love my website and the operating instruction are so simple it's a joy to use. You might find cheaper, but you won't find better.
Jill McCulloch - December 2015
Your ideas, advice and support were brilliant and for anyone looking to have a website built, you are the number one recommendation. We have also told our BusinessLink adviser who has included our feedback on his database and is happy to pass on our comments to his other clients. We particularly liked your methodical approach to the brief providing us with regular reports outlining actions completed, actions outstanding and who was responsible for what. This made life much easier for us and ensured that all angles were covered. A big thank you from an appreciative client.
Croft Design Studio
I've been working with the Catfish team for many years now and Jane is an amazing director. Every brief is thoroughly coordinated and the team works together to ensure the brand is consistent across the board. We really enjoy the creative freedom to produce engaging design work with attention to detail giving each Catfish project that professional edge.
Sarah Croft - January 2022
David Wren Architect
Catfish Web Design constructed my website over a year ago when I started business. Jane dealt with me personally and quickly understood my need for a simple but informative site. I would recommend her to anyone, and will go back to Catfish when I feel the site needs refreshed. Online searches always place my site near the top of the page, which is I feel important, particularly for a new enterprise such as mine.
David Wren - September 2016
Thank you for helping us to update our extremely tired and dated website and make it into what it is today. You quickly understood our ethos and our requirements and made suitable recommendations based thereon. The website is easy to use and it is very helpful that we can make amendments ourselves. I cannot fault the speed and quality of the cost-effective service, which is very important to a small business.
Sandra Deacon - September 2017
Dragon Light Films
I've worked with Catfish on several projects as a service provider. Jane is always professional, clear on what's required from the client side, creative in her approach and delivers beautiful websites that convert!
Colin Ramsay - January 2020
Thank you so much for all the work you put into my website for Dyspraxia UK. It has made a huge difference to my business. I spend less time on the phone as all the information is well and logically presented. At the time of deciding to ‘redo’ my website, I had not appreciated the amount of detail and work involved. You took me through the process painlessly. Your expertise and eye for design and function helped create a very successful, smart website and fresh new logo. Thank you so, so much.
Rosaline van de Weyer
I have been delighted with the website produced by Catfish Web Design. The whole process was straightforward and efficient from initial contact, quotation, content development through to implementation. The after sales service has been excellent, and I have received highly positive comments from clients and colleagues who have been impressed by the site. I was particularly pleased with the way Jane not only helped me to create a new brand image, but also cleverly incorporated this into the new website itself.
We just wanted to say a big thanks for helping us get our new venture going with the aid of a really great web site. We needed a site which was right for our market, easy to navigate and something that we could easily maintain using simple but effective tools. Having been involved in the setting up of several web sites in recent years all we can say is that we wish we had met you earlier because you ticked all these boxes and more for us. No drama, no hassle, no jargon - you delivered exactly what we asked for and as a result you have another very happy customer.
Catfish Web Design recently completed our new website and the feedback we have had from customers is fantastic. They have created a fresh, clean website that is easy to use and consumer friendly which has definitely helped us in getting more enquiries. Jane's approach is that she listens to what you want and how you want to project your business whilst advising what would work best in terms of a website that is user friendly. Jane is also extremely helpful with ongoing support and advice and we would fully recommend her services to anyone. Thank you Jane for a great job.
Ryan & Sarah Jarvis - October 2016
Fenland Fishing Tackle
Catfish built my website from scratch and from the few scribbles on pieces of paper that I gave them to work with, they came up with a professional looking easy to use website that I couldn't be happier with. They are easy to work with and gave me the site I imagined, which is all I could ask for. The feedback from customers is positive. They like the way the site looks and how easy it is to use.
Catfish created a fantastic website for me which I am proud to direct people to. Everybody has said it is clear, unfussy and lovely to look at. Catfish offered a very good service helping me think through what I needed from the site and making sure that I had the right support to be able to keep it up to date myself.
I approached Catfish Web Design to design and build my website because I was so impressed with the sheer amount of high profile sites they had already worked on, and for their obvious flair and skill at creating the perfect look and feel unique to each site and each brief. They did not let me down! I am so happy with my site (I sometimes just visit it for no other reason than to admire it!). The brief was followed to a T and, although very minor, any changes I requested were sensitively dealt with and considered.
I would wholeheartedly recommend their service to anyone debating a 'do-it-yourself' job Vs the professionals. Jane advised me right from the beginning to 'start as you mean to go on' and I am extremely grateful for this advice as it has influenced my decision to ensure that my site looks and operates like a professional one. If I need any support with anything technical now that my site is live I feel confident and secure in the knowledge that the team at Catfish really know their stuff and are on hand to help!
Fionnulla Brooks - March 2017
Full Stop Bowl
I wanted a web site that was visually striking and easy to navigate. Our product targets a well-known market but with an innovative twist – I wanted users of our site to be able to understand how our product is intended to help them without getting bogged down in the detail; but for the detail to be there for those that desired it. Catfish Web Design was an obvious choice for a new product developed in the Cambridge area. Jane’s web sites are clear and uncluttered and, at the same time, incorporate all the necessary whistles and bells for social media and a fully functioning on-line shop. What became very clear from the outset was that Jane knew exactly where she was taking us with the site but could adapt easily to our particular need and the nuance of our product and the business operating architecture we wanted to have in place. It was crucial that the web site, especially the shop element, stood up to a period of high public engagement at product launch and this it did faultlessly, and that has remained the case every day since.
Alix Avery - February 2017
Global Regulatory Services
Jane Horwood is an absolute delight to work with. The updating of our Global Regulatory Services (GRS) website wasn’t that straightforward because we had to change the platform. This could have been a very painful and stressful process (I know I was getting very stressed about it all!). Jane and her team, however, were completely calm, professional and reassuring. This meant that we could sit back and enjoy contributing to the creative aspects of our website knowing that Jane was in control of the technology. Catfish has managed to capture the essence of GRS and we are thrilled with the end result especially since we’ve received a lot of positive feedback from visitors to our site. In fact, one website visitor said to us that he had a choice of two companies to engage with and based on our website alone he chose us. I’m pleased to confirm that he has joined our portfolio of happy clients! Without a doubt our new website has contributed to the recent and significant growth of our consultancy business. Updating and upgrading our website was definitely worth the time and investment. I have nothing but praise for Catfish Web Design and Jane’s ongoing support is invaluable. Catfish is our ‘go to’ company for all our creative requirements.
Greer Deal, Director - November 2017
When we needed a new website for our latest business acquisition, I had no hesitation in going straight to Catfish. With two previous website projects completed successfully, we were again delighted with the proactive response to create an impressive new showcase for our business. The result is first class and the teamwork to achieve it was excellent.
Patrick Phelan - December 2020
I worked with Catfish for both my GO Coaching logo design and website production and can’t fault their design skills. I had an idea of the image I wanted to create and they instantly shared my vision. They are easy to communicate and share concepts with. Their quality of work is of a very high standard and I will certainly use them again. I fully recommend Catfish Web Design!
George O'Farrell - July 2019
My website requirements were by no means straight forward but Catfish interpreted my quite specific brief and produced a website that I am thrilled with. After a few weeks it is already achieving impressive rankings with Google and the orders are coming in. Thank you so much.
It has been a great pleasure to work with Catfish Web Design on our new website. Jane is very organised and responsive, and this meant that the project went very smoothly, with no delays. The creative team at Catfish web design listened to our ideas and goals and incorporated them into the design. They were able to deliver on our brief that we wanted something elegant, clear, simple and a little bit quirky, and had lots of suggestions on how to achieve this. We are thrilled with the result, and have had very positive feedback from our clients.
Alison Bestow - August 2019

I am absolutely delighted with all the web and print work you have done for me and I will recommend you to all my friends.
Hackney Advice Project
We would not hesitate to recommend Catfish Design to other professional organisations needing a good website at a reasonable price and we look forward to continuing to work with Catfish Web Design for the foreseeable future. Read the full testimonial by Miranda Grell on our blog.
Hackney Community Law Centre
I have worked with Catfish Web Design for over three years. When Hackney Community Law Centre decided to refresh the design of our website earlier this year, there was no question that the contract wouldn’t go to Catfish. As an advice agency on which the general public depends, it was important to us that our new website would be easy to navigate. Catfish immediately understood what was required and again worked quickly, creatively and proactively. I was very pleased at the detailed consideration they gave regarding to the functionality of the website. Catfish are also completely reliable. When I approached them about a new Law Centre website, I told them that I had a set deadline for completion of the work. Due to their complete commitment to providing a quality service, the work was completed two weeks early. Finally, on a personal level, Catfish are a pleasure to work with. They are accessible, approachable and friendly. I know I will work with Catfish Web Design again in the future and I highly recommend them.
Miranda Grell, Business Development Manager - June 2017
Working with Catfish was such a positive experience. The communication was excellent and everything was done professionally and efficiently. We were impressed by the way that Jane picked up on what we wanted and, working with local artist Ophelia Redpath’s images, she created a design that worked so well for us. The result: a refreshing and unique website for our local choir, which was good value for money. I would definitely recommend Catfish to others.
Juliet Grier, Committee Member - March 2019
As a new start up company we had a very specific idea about what we wanted our website to look like and perform. From the first meeting we knew that Jane had understood our needs and what we wanted and she took our ideas forward to create a website that we could not have been more pleased with. We were amazed at how quickly the site was ready and how easy the whole process was. We cannot thank or recommend Jane and her team at Catfish enough.
Helen Pomeroy Yoga
I am a Yoga Teacher and Catfish Web Design recently created a new website for me. It was my first website and it was important for me to have something that looked professional and gave a true representation of me and my approach to yoga. I was delighted with the finished result and I have had lots of positive feedback from clients, friends and family who know me well.
Jane at Catfish was great to work with. The website was up and running very quickly and Jane always answered any queries promptly Jane took the time to understand what I wanted to achieve, gave me plenty of advice and designed a website that is logical and easy to use.
She clearly has a wealth of experience and that she brings to the process, which is of great benefit to her clients. Catfish were able to recommend an excellent photographer for the website photos and prepared the art work for my new business cards.
I would highly recommend Catfish Web Design. They made creating my website an enjoyable process that was definitely worth the investment.
Helen Pomeroy - March 2019
From the first initial discussion with Jane she quickly grasped what I was trying to achieve with my new website, she gave me some good examples of other sites to review and the sign off and build phase were quick and made simple. Once the site was live she was on hand to guide me through the CMS system and ensure I was getting the maximum use out of the functionality the site had. 8 mths on I still call Jane for advice and questions, she is easy to contact and very helpful.
Thank you to Catfish for a great all round service. We have ended up with a website that we are really pleased with and meets our needs. We found the whole process from our first contact to completion really smooth. Jane was very responsive and kept us on plan. Communication was very good and clear and Jane went to extra lengths to help us when we needed some technical help making the site live. We would definitely recommend Catfish.
In the Zone Fitness
I found my experience with Catfish excellent. Jane was very thorough and helped me throughout the whole design process. I was very pleased with the professional look of my website. Everything I asked for I received. Very happy and would definitely recommend Jane. Also many people have commented on my website, saying very positive things.
We approached Catfish about revamping our website as, although the site looked good, it wasn't particularly user friendly or suitable for mobile devices. Our new website is now operating very successfully. Everyone who has seen the website so far has commented how user friendly and professional it looks. It is also responsive for mobile devices. The content management system is easy to use and the guidance Jane gives is great. Jane was a pleasure to work with and always very helpful. We will certainly be recommending the services of Catfish.
Evelyn Hou - September 2016
Jennifer Zerk Consulting
I am getting such good feedback re my new website. Comments like 'fab site Jen' and 'very flash' and this one ... 'I browsed your site and I think it's absolutely fabulous and very impressive indeed. I like the page headings and the general calmness about the whole thing despite the mass of information you supply. Very well done.
I found Jane to be inventive, responsive, focused and a very clear communicator. That's a powerful mix.
Just Smile Dental Practice
We would like to say a very big thank you to Jane Horwood of Catfish Web Design for taming our monster of a website. Our new website met all of the requirements set out in the brief, is a pleasure on the eye and easy to navigate.
Kennedy House Consulting
Jane is creative, pragmatic and extremely responsive. Her experience was very reassuring. The final result is absolutely on brief.
Labstract Bioscience Support Services
We were looking to refresh our website which we’d had since 2006 – and it was showing its age! We were looking for a professional, clean website which would appeal to bioscience clients and after jotting down just a few ideas was really pleasantly surprised by the draft that Jane sent through. Jane worked closely with us on the design, content management system and email setup and we were left with a fantastic looking website which accurately reflected our business. Well done to the team.
Level Bubble Learning
Thank you ever so much for all your hard work, and the great service you provided from start to finish. The new website you created looks absolutely fantastic - thank you Catfish. Very very pleased.

I highly recommend Catfish Web Design. Jane is really proficient and great to work with. She understood my requirements and worked quickly and efficiently to produce a my website. 5 stars.
Sevarin Bennett - February 2022
The Lilac James Marketing & SEO Agency have worked with Catfish Web Design on joint client projects for several years. Catfish websites are always built to the highest standard, include up to date SEO functionality and are finished with a creative flare that is hard to find. We can highly recommend Jane and her team, wonderful people and an excellent service!
Karen James - April 2016
Louise Beamish Weddings & Events
From start to finish, Jane completely understood the brief. All it took was one meeting and a few emails. My website was quickly and expertly constructed and I am really pleased with how elegant it looks and how easy it is to update. Any queries and Jane is just an email away at all times. I am busy spreading the word.
Lynne Butterworth Bridal Hair & Makeup
I met with Jane following a chat on the phone and loved the creative style of her office. I knew straight away she would have interesting ideas for me. More importantly though, I had specific ideas of my own, and she listened to my criteria whilst making wise suggestions, too. As I am a technophobe, she was in touch constantly, guiding me and encouraging me, and assisting where possible if I wasn't able to find something she required for the website. I am very happy with the end result, and have the freedom to change my website as I go along. What's more, I have been given all the relevant documents for changing the website myself as I go along, should I need to.
Lynne Butterworth - October 2017
Jane and the team have been incredibly
Paula Banks, Owner - June 2018
Martin and Hall
We love our website! It is clear, crisp and professional. Jane Horwood and her colleagues helped us with overall design, our logo, the colour palette and photos, as well as creating a user-friendly site. The feedback from our clients and contacts has been very positive. Thank you Jane.
Sarah Martin - September 2016
Minerva (Executive and Leadership Search)
We have worked with Catfish since our business started in 2013, and have worked with them on two separate builds of the website. They are extremely responsive, and take time to explain things in layman’s terms – you don’t get overwhelmed with techie jargon. They provide a really good balance of creative, aesthetic, design aspects alongside the technical. They took time to listen to us and understand our needs, and worked to a tight deadline. We are very pleased and will keep working with them.
Ben Tucker - March 2019
M J Salmon & Son
We are absolutely delighted with our new website. We have had 4 previous incarnations by others and none have really hit the spot. Jane was really quick, great personal touch and very knowledgeable. I would thoroughly recommend Catfish Web Design.
N G Marketing
Jane has provided me with just what I wanted on 2 different briefs. A medium sized ecommerce shop which portrays the very brand image I desired and a business to business oriented site that is easilly updated and managable.On both these projects from concept to creation the communication and realisation was handled well and I wouldn't hesitate to recommend her work to anyone.
Jane Horwood and her business, Catfish Web Design, were just what the doctor ordered to get my business on track. Jane is more than a good professional. She is empathic to the needs of each individual, and goes that extra mile to make sure we are happy with the results. She is creative, original, and down to earth about what will function well in the business world. For me, the result of her hard work is a beautiful, fresh, smoothly functioning space into which I can now display and sell my art. I am delighted with everything she has done for me.
Ophelia Redpath - June 2019
Penn Farm Podiatry
Thank you so much! I’m really happy with my logo and website. I wanted to be able to put a personal stamp on it and it was great to be able to include my own photos. Jane gave me a lot of guidance about what would work best. Being able to edit it since it’s gone live - adding photos, pdfs and links - has really pushed my computer skills but I’m so proud to have managed it. My patients think it’s fab too - and in the end that is all that matters.
Hannah Roberts - February 2017
We were attracted to Jane's services by the design of her own website and many of the examples in her portfolio. The clean, sharp, uncluttered layouts and strong cool visuals were just what we were looking for. Jane took our wishes and requirements on board and guided us through the techie bits with aplomb. We are delighted with the end result and are always receiving kind comments from our industry colleagues and customers alike. I would wholeheartedly recommend Jane's services and Catfish Web Design.

After starting my business in 2016, I looked for a cheap solution to get a website put together. Doing this took a huge amount of time and effort but ultimately I ended up with a poor quality website overall. I then engaged a further company, who also failed to provide an adequate solution.
After searching for an experienced local company to deal with, I came across Catfish Web Design. Jane was approachable, understanding and had great creative input. From my previous experiences, I knew I wanted a quality end result and was instantly confident in Jane's approach and knowledge. She made recommendations on how best to get the content put together and suggested other local professionals to help> Jane took my vision and created a website that surpassed my expectations.
I would highly recommend not making the costly mistakes I did during my website building journey, and engage Jane to deliver a quality solution from her years of experience and knowledge.

Our industry is consistently evolving and following a period of strong growth, we decided we needed to see a change in the way we presented ourselves through our brand. We approached Jane at Catfish to help us create our new visual identity through our website. Jane knew exactly what we wanted and how to create a website that helped us represent a more professional, confident, authoritative brand, which is striving to change the face of construction. We wanted to harness our deep practical knowledge and experience of large-scale construction projects and champion our client’s interests to deliver outcomes that exceed expectations. We are striving to be a leading Construction Management/Construction Planning and Claims Consultancy and Catfish is helping us do this.

I would like to say how much I enjoy my new website, it’s eyecatching, current and easy to navigate. All my interactions with Catfish were clear and concise and I received a list of information required from me which was then translated into information on the website. I didn’t have a clear idea of what I wanted for my site but I was offered different looks and layouts which narrowed my decision making until I was happy with the whole look. I now have a great site that reflects my business, it was money well spent, a stress free process delivered in good time and the outcome exceeded my ability to envision what I thought I wanted from my site.

Rape Crisis England & Wales National Service Standards Assessment Tool
We asked Catfish Web Design to design and build an online self-assessment tool to be used by Rape Crisis Centres in England, Scotland and Wales. Our specification was incredibly demanding and at the same time, we needed the tool to look attractive, be intuitive and easy to use as well as robust. Jane and Mike really listened to what we wanted and have built a tool that exceeded anything we could have imagined. I was truly delighted with the finished result and the feedback from Rape Crisis Centres has been extremely positive. They were fantastic to work with and were always willing to go the extra mile to get it just right. Even when I was flagging because it seemed like such a huge challenge, Jane consistently stayed on track, was encouraging and always found a solution. They have most definitely earnt my very highest recommendation.

I've worked with Jane for a number of years on a variety of client projects. The websites she produces are all really well thought out and produced to the highest standard. Her attention to detail and dedication to client projects is what really sets her apart from the rest of the industry.
Sam Taylor - August 2021
Very happy with the service I received from Catfish. Jane quickly understood my target market and built a website that is easy on the eye, functional and effective. Whenever we’ve been in need she’s been available to help and advise ever since. Thumbs up!

Working with Mike Ash at Catfish on my website made what could have been a very stressful experience into a relaxed and stress free event. He was everything that I could have wished for in a web designer ... approachable, calm, patient, responsive, pro-active and a great communicator. He delivered exactly what I asked for and made the whole process seem quite effortless. Thanks to his straightforward explanations and guidance he has really given me the confidence to manage the day to day running of my website. I can recommend Catfish without hesitation.

My new website is a huge success. The feedback I have received has been amazing and the bookings keep coming. My courses are a lot fuller than they have been for years! Thank you!
Working with Catfish has been a fantastic endeavour for Sew Creative Ltd, we now have a stunning website which reflects our shop perfectly.
We now have customers comment on how much of an improvement the site is and how much easier it is to use! We highly recommend Jane and her team, they listened to what we wanted and delivered to a high standard.

SERICC is delighted with the efficient and creative service provided by Catfish. The website they have designed and developed for us is accessible, fresh and clear. We highly recommend Catfish services.

There are certain milestones in the history of a business that really stand out. For me one of these is commissioning Jane to build our first website 9 years ago. It has made a significant difference to our business and our customers are constantly complimenting us on it. Recently Jane has designed a new site for us and optimised for mobile devices too. I did not think our old site could be improved upon. I was wrong - Jane has surpassed herself. It is a privilege to work with someone so talented.
Lester Robinson - May 2016
Rape Crisis England & Wales, and a number of Rape Crisis Centres including SERICC, have been working with Catfish Design since 2008. In a highly completive market we have found them to be professional and cost effective. As a voluntary sector organisation, we have tight budgets, with project funding with tight deadlines, Catfish have a 100% record in meeting both. Over the years we have proposed different challenges which are required for our websites. This include passworded members areas, workforce portals that are ever changing and growing, keeping up with security and innovation. There is excellent two way communication and engagement with Catfish at every level of design through to launch.
In our recent website Synergy Essex the brief included ease of access for visitors, on line resources and room for development. Due to the nature of our work simplicity of use and access is paramount. We have received excellent feedback from all of our sites, both from professionals and service users.
Lee Eggleston OBE – Operations Manager, South Essex Rape & Incest Crisis Centre
I'd like to thank you so much for designing my great new website. I was very impressed by how quickly you achieved the excellent end result and for your constructive ideas on the design and layout. Already I've had many positive comments from people about how good my website is and I'm now very proud of the new site. Your advice, coupled with the new website, has been invaluable. I'll certainly be recommending your services.
Catfish have designed a great new website for our electrical contracting business. Jane really listened to our own ideas and related to our requirements perfectly. Our website projects a professional image to our customers, is well balanced with its content and allows our customers to navigate through our website with interest and ease. Jane has been most efficient and a pleasure to work with. We are delighted with our website.

Before working with Catfish we had heard some very good reports. On completion of our site we can absolutely recommend them 100%. Catfish have been wonderful to work with, they really understood our market and how we wanted to be seen on the web. A great complete package. In 2014 I approached Catfish about revamping my website as, although the site still looked good and worked well, a few adjustments were needed to refresh and help with SEO placement. With the addition of a blog, a review of the home page and inclusion of responsive design for mobile devices the site looks bang up to date. The site now offers an optimal viewing experience across all mobile devices with easy reading and navigation. I am thrilled with the result and the site is now ranking much higher than previously on Google.
I approached Jane at Catfish to create a website for a fairly new company we needed to make an impact with. Some elements of the brief were quite specific and I had a clear idea of what we wanted, others we needed advice on. Not only did Jane translate my ideas to differentiate the brand seamlessly into glossy reality, she also designed the functional areas of the website to perfectly complement the rest. It was love at first sight/site! Jane is a pleasure to work with - perceptive, creative, helpful and incredibly fast and efficient. We came away with a website better than we could have imagined, in record time. Everyone that has seen it so far has commented on how fantastic it is (even the incredibly fussy ones!), and we're proud to be able to now reach our target market with something very professional that stands out from the crowd.

I chose Catfish web design as I very much liked many of the designs I had seen on their website. I made the right choice as Jane was a pleasure to work with and always very helpful and gave good advice. The whole process was very smooth and I am delighted with my new website and have received very positive comments about it. The CMS management guidance Jane gives is also excellent. I would certainly recommend Jane's work.
We wanted a clean, fresh, beautiful and professional looking website and Catfish certainly delivered. Our deadline was met and they made sure all the loose ends were tied up and stayed calm! Catfish has not only produced a great website but put us in touch with other professionals who we have also been working with on our marketing strategy. We have already received compliments from our clients and there is definitely a higher amount of enquiries from the website even though it’s only been a few days since the launch. All in all we are very happy and wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Catfish Web Design.

Catfish were very professional and supportive throughout the whole process of designing and building our new website. The communication throughout was first class and requests for content always accompanied by helpful tips, patience and easy to follow templates. Catfish more than met our expectations in terms of working to our brief and designing a website that creatively represents our mission and vision. Very good value for money and less than 2 months after the launch we are achieving a 200% increase in visitors. We definitely recommend Catfish Web Design to others who are looking for a fresh image at reasonable cost delivered by a skilled and customer focused team.

We took a booking yesterday from a customer who did an internet search for clean bins Cambridge and we came up first, great! (there have been a number of others). However, he said that he really liked the website and thought we would be a lot more expensive than we are due to the quality of the site. We love the site so it's great that our customers do too, thanks.
Catfish are ... friendly, intuitive & creative. Our new websites are ... bright, clean, easy to navigate & where visitors like to stick around!

We used Catfish for the design of our holiday let website, and were very impressed with the level of quality and professionalism that Jane brought to the brief. I would definitely recommend her (and have done) to anyone wanting this kind of service.
Ben Gardiner - January 2022
Woodland Wishes Funeral Services was looking for a website designer to revamp or redesign our site. We as a company are constantly evolving our business to meet our clients' ever changing needs and this needed to be reflected in our website. It was important for us to find a designer who could understand our business, our needs and our clients. Working with Catfish certainly helped us understand how to make the most of our website. Their understanding, experience and patience was just perfect. They fulfilled their promise to deliver what we agreed in plenty of time and at a cost affordable to us. We have ended up with just what we wanted and just wish we had met them at the start 7 years ago. Thank you to Jane and her team for all their hard work and the valued aftercare.
