“I recently hired Isaac to develop a web-site and was impressed by his breadth of expertise, professionalism (work on time & in budget) and overall helpfulness (he voluntarily fixed some server installation issues we were having as well).
He’s a recent graduate and, despite a decent portfolio, there was perhaps an initial question-mark in my mind about how comfortable someone relatively inexperienced would be working with our design brief. However, I think he’s done a great job, especially in the time/budget allowed, and I don’t hesitate in recommending him as a full-stack developer.”

Isaac is a hard-working, enthusiastic and reliable individual who proactively involved in setting up Warwick Fashion Group’s online presence. He takes great initiative to solve problems promptly and has a wealth of knowledge about new and existing technologies.
He is an excellent business partner when it comes to combining design and technologies as a whole. His advice and actions on projects has led to quick and sound decision making. I have enjoyed working with Issac, he is a truly cooperative and efficient partner. I will definitely work with him again in the coming future.

Isaac designed my website rupertelder.com in Spring 2012. He quickly responded to all my requests with exactly what I wanted and I ended up being very happy with the website for a fair price.
