Starting your own business can be daunting and the importance of projecting the right image on a website cannot be overstressed. After looking at a number of different websites of potential competitors I soon got a picture of what I wanted and more importantly what I didn’t want on my website. One website in particular caught my eye and I noticed it was created by BrightblueC.
I contacted Trudie and we had an informal chat. Straight away I sensed she got what I was after. She managed to interpret my thoughts and was able to rationalise them into a clear, vibrant, easy to use and above all professional looking website. After a few minor adjustments and a proof read it was ready to be launched. Trudie clearly had an intuitive feel which was beyond my expectation and the end result is an exemplar of what can be achieved for a fledgling business starting off in an uncertain media world. I can thoroughly recommend Trudie and BrightblueC for anyone in the same position.
Trudie has worked for us on multiple projects, for businesses in very different sectors. We have always found her friendly, approachable, easy to work with and highly professional.
Her ideas are always fresh, and she thinks of new innovative approaches we never would have. She always makes herself available, for even the smallest of requests, and her turnaround time is excellent.
If you are looking for someone with regard to website, marketing etc, we highly recommend Trudie Burne of Bright Blue C.
Trudie is a gifted Graphic Designer. In a previous career in the corporate world I worked with many Graphic Designers and none of them could hold a candle to Trudie. Her creativity, attention to detail, customer focus, patience and warmth not to mention the affordability of her offer mean that she stands a head and shoulders above the rest...
Trudie has not only created a fantastic website for us but also designed our branding, signage, menus and marketing materials. She works so hard to give you exactly what your business needs and always works so quickly and professionally. She is extremely patient, easy to deal with and creative and I would have no hesitation in recommending her services to anyone.
Thanks so much for the fab work you have done for us. We Love your design taste and you seem to understand exactly what we need and want even though we may not be able to explain it. We were so pleased with the photo shoot of our facility and action shots of our work to bring our website to life.
I found the two face to face sessions for planning and then handover tutorial really helpful in finding our way through the process. We now feel we have an up to date website we can be proud of that showcases our business and allows us total control of keeping it active. You are a pleasure to work with and we would not hesitate to recommend Bright BlueC.
I can't tell you how many people have told me how beautiful my website is. Businesses and customers alike tell me how they love my logo and my branded vehicle was voted 'best looking van in the land' by fellow food producers. What more could you possibly want for your business profile?
Trudie has an eye for design that will make people notice your business and remember you. I can't thank her enough for bringing my business to life.
Trudie constructed a new website for my China and Glass Restoration business a few years ago and has recently re-built it to keep it up to date. I receive many compliments about my website from clients and I receive inquiries from all over the world, which proves that the SEO is working well.
Trudie also designed my logo, after care leafle , fliers and business cards to match the graphics on my website. I love the way they all tie in and look so professional.
As I estimate that around 80% of my new business inquiries come from the internet I owe Trudie a debt of gratitude and would recommend her skills to anyone considering a new website or other type of promotional material.
I have worked with Bright Blue C since 2016. During this period Trudie has supported the development of our organisation through consistently high quality design work, marketing systems and websites. Helpful, flexible and a great personal touch characterises the way Bright Blue C works with us. Most of all, Trudie is good at drawing out what you actually want in a project so you get products that really match your needs. I would thoroughly recommend Bright Blue C.
After checking out several website designers, at the recommendation of a gallery, I decided to pick Bright Blue C. I am very glad I did.
The professional and very easy access of my website designed by Trudie of Bright Blue C has been a great boost over several years to my international artistic career. Recurring updates of my website are very easy and no trouble to her.
Trudie you used your creative genius to transform my website into something to be proud of. You worked professionally, flexibly and added real sparkle to Fiona Hiscox Studio, thank you so much.
Thank you for your patience, expertise, guidance and good humour Trudie. As a self confessed technophobe I was utterly delighted you understood what I needed to convey (my work is completely people centred while the website provides a link and means of necessary communication). I’ve been able to recommended you on a number of occasions to other health professionals working in private practice. Thanks again.
I appreciated Trudie's sheer expertise and her personal patience with me in putting my website together, and in tutoring me afterward about its 'upkeep'. I'm happy to say that I'm regularly told by patients that they really liked the visual 'tone' and appearance of my website, both as a point of contact and as a source of information. Job well done!
Trudie, working with you is a pleasure. I know I am listened to and you comes up with great designs which I love. You are also also generous in your responses when I have forgotten how to access or use elements of my website or Mailchimp accounts. Thank you so much and happy new year.
Many thanks for your patience, perseverance, warmth and lovely laugh Trudie!! You’ve done a first-rate job for me and here’s to a prosperous 2020. All the best to you and your family for a riotous and fun-filled Christmas!
Trudie was fantastic, she listened carefully to my brief and designed a fantastic logo. I really love it and how it will shape the contemporary feel to the brand ID of my Garden and Interior Design business. I enjoyed seeing how the logo was developed and process of the design.
After much thought I decided the time was right to have a website where I could showcase my art. I was recommended to Trudie at Bright Blue C and she did a brilliant job for me, interpreting exactly my request for a crisp, clear and easy to navigate website. Trudie is very professional and explains the process very clearly. She has a lovely friendly manner with patience in abundance, which I was most grateful for. I now manage the site myself, and Trudie’s back-up help is there whenever I need it. I would highly recommend Trudie at Bright Blue C.
Trudie did a great job crafting my new website – I’m really pleased with it! Trudie quickly understood my small public relations business, interpreted my brief and proposed great design options. The site went live on time and to budget. Trudie is a wonderful designer and a pleasure to work with!
The Budleigh Salterton Neighbourhood Plan is one of the most important documents to be produced in the town in recent years, so it was important for the Steering Group to ensure that the Plan should look good, be easy to read and clearly understood. It was also important to use a local designer to represent the town and demonstrate the skills that businesses in the town possess. Trudie has an established reputation so it was an easy decision to make when it came to award the contract to her. We were not disappointed and the final document fulfilled and indeed exceeded all our requirements.
Trudie’s work was of the highest professional standard and the meticulous manner in which she fine tuned her work was particularly noteworthy. She consulted us regularly with regard to any new ideas and most importantly the work was completed on schedule. There will be further drafts of this plan over the coming months and we will have no hesitation in continuing to use bright blue C, confident in the knowledge that the final product will be of the highest design quality.
Thanks to Trudie for our new website, its bright and fresh and easy to use and maintain. We were impressed by the quality of service, and professional approach throughout the design and construction process. Trudie listened carefully to our needs and requirements and developed a range of proposal from which we could choose. Her creative flare, clear design concepts and IT skills has resulted in a website that really meets the needs of both the school and parents. Trudie was always willing to take on board feedback, make changes and her eye for detail resulted in a website that creates a vibrant and professional view of our school. Trudie was flexible and quickly picked on exactly what we needed, she came up with a range of proposals and the ongoing communication was excellent.
Trudie provided excellent training for our staff and even once the website was completed we never felt we were left alone, she ensured we were fully confident with managing the content and went the extra mile to ensure everything was set up and manageable from day one.
The operating systems and features integrated into our website are so easy to use. A truly professional and client centred service that has produced stunning results and a website we are really proud of!
We had no idea which way our re-branding process would take us, but Trudie was there every step of the way providing a very professional, creative yet personal approach which resulted in a great dynamic look – a brand we’re very proud of and which has been well received.
It was a pleasure working with Trudie and we would highly recommend her to anyone looking for an innovative designer.
When writing a testimonial for someone or a company one has to be very careful that is does not backfire on you! However on this occasion I have no hesitation in telling you about our experience with Trudie Burne of Bright Blue C. We had been playing around with various freelance people with regard to our website, sadly none of them worked for us and I was loosing the will to carry on our web presence, then someone in our office mentioned Trudie, so we contacted her and she came along and did a fantastic presentation, so we decided to go along with her advices and the rest is on the internet for all to see!
Trudie has been working with us for just over a year now and she delivers what she promises and more. She is responsive when questioned and she is proactive when not. She is reasonably priced; I have had cheaper but they have not delivered, so the adage about monkeys and peanuts is relative. All in all she is bloomin good!
I know from talking with my pupils they are most impressed with the look of the mobile site but they are especially impressed with the Facebook link. Although I haven't recorded the numbers I am certain that well over 30,000 clicks to see the picture's I post after the pupil passes have been made. I would like to thank you for your efforts in both producing a wonderful website but also your encouraging me to use Facebook.
We love your new website!'... We've lost count of the number of times guests have complimented our new website. Having Trudie design the website and logo when we took over Pebbles earlier this year has definitely had a positive impact on the business. Working with Trudie was a pleasure and her approach was both professional and inspirational. We wouldn't hesitate to recommend Trudie to anyone requiring graphic design services or help with marketing their business.
NOW RETIRED 2019
Trudie has created a very professional looking website for my china restoration business which my clients find clear and easy to navigate. I was consulted and shown examples of different layouts every step of the way, which enabled me to choose the best format for presenting the various aspects of my conservation and restoration service. I was also given a realistic estimate of cost, which was very reasonable. Trudie visited my workshop and took photographs which added a personal touch to my website in addition to the images I provided. Her artistic flair has added some designer panache to each page, giving the site a modern fresh appearance and I was impressed with Trudie’s recommendation to include social media sites and a blog to add additional information and keep clients up to date with new projects, ideas and personal professional development.
Trudie has also designed some stylish compliment slips for me, which mirror the logo and clean, uncluttered style of the website. It is a pleasure working with Trudie and I would recommend Bright Blue C to anyone needing a graphic designer. The quality of the service is excellent and good value for money.
I approached Trudie to refresh my business image. After an initial consultation I was very impressed with her fresh approach and ideas. Throughout the project Trudie was able to make my detailed requests a reality and through great communication and experience she has created a fantastic website that I am now able to manage myself. I can highly recommend Trudie and will continue to work with her as my business progresses.
