I was approached by the phenomenal Bonita Norris on a personal recommendation, which was exciting enough in itself – but then Bonita gave me the most brilliant brief. She wanted to create a niche holiday brand called ‘Rock up’ that catered for hardcore climbers who wanted to ‘climb with their heroes’.

Bonita gave me complete free rein and a selection of fantastic photos of her extremely photogenic climbers. Game on. I called on Anthony and after some time hammering his sketch book, he came up with the logo, representing an intertwined R and U. I worked up a pallette (that was far removed from my comfort zone, but somehow just worked) and registered the domain name

The build itself took quite some time, due to integrations with PayPal and SagePay etc – but come the end, it was a fantastic result.

Max was brilliant at comms from the moment I made contact. He mostly never took more than a few minutes to answer any of my emails. This was fantastic as we could always rely on him to deal with an issue as soon as it cropped up. We are also total tech novices and Max explained everything really well. His constant support made the whole process (mostly) stress free.

Max was very creative and bought some amazing design ideas to us, which have made up the foundations of our brand- for instance the colour schemes on the site and the way the site flows.

This is the first time I’ve ever needed to have a website and I have some ideas in my head but no idea about what was possible or even what my ideas would look like in real life. Max was incredibly patient, coming up with lots of options and in that process I really discovered what I wanted the site to look like. He took our sketchy ideas and built an amazing, functioning website to represent our business. We couldn’t have asked for more.
We feel incredibly lucky to have found Max and cannot believe how our site has turned out. It’s just so much better than what we expected. It’s really helped us secure business and everyone we speak to about our new business says how impressed they are with our site.

I would highly recommend Max!
