“I was pleased to work closely with Sinéad of Ridge Design on the creation of two crisp modern websites for my busy garden design and landscape architecture practices. These were originally built and published in 2009 but were in need of a complete overhaul. One website is aimed at the corporate market while the other concentrates on the domestic market and the designs needed to reflect this. The colours Sinéad used, the images she picked, the proportions and layouts of the pages, all of these items came together to produce two websites with their own identities.
All of the design and build work was completed offline which meant that I was never without that essential component of modern business, a website. The design and build took place in a timely fashion and I was given plenty of access to the development website so that I could ask for any amendments before it was published. The training Sinéad provided once the websites were published was very useful and gave me the tools I need to keep the websites updated myself. Her after sales service was very good and any questions I had were dealt with quickly and efficiently.
As a designer I know that the best results are achieved when you have a good working relationship with your client and I felt that Sinéad really listened to what I had to say and we worked well together. I am very happy with both finished websites and was really impressed by Sinéad’s level of service and professionalism throughout the entire website design and build process. For these reasons alone I would have no hesitation in recommending Sinéad and the website design services she provides at Ridge Design.”

“In 2015 I was really struggling with the redesign of our website. I was finding it very difficult to get other website design companies to understand what I was trying to achieve. Then, one day, I discovered Sinéad and all was good again, it was a great relief. Sinéad took time to listen and ‘got us’ very quickly. I was immediately reassured because it was quickly clear that she has a great design eye and genuine appreciation for our brand. It came as no surprise to learn that Sinéad had studied at the National College of Art and Design. Our website is complete now but like all websites it requires ongoing maintenance and updates. Sinéad has been very helpful with this, providing a prompt service every time. RENOVA and Ridge Design have an ongoing working relationship which is working very well. I’d describe Sinéad as the custodian of our website which is very reassuring.”

“We had an old static html website which had been in place for many years and was in need of a complete revamp. We had already decided to build a WordPress website and were happy to create the basic pages and posts ourselves. However we found the process of designing the structure and look of the pages very difficult and so we approached Sinéad in early 2015 to assist with the design and build of our new website.
We just handed over information on our new logo, a large selection of photos and the text content for the website to Sinéad and she took care of everything else. We worked closely over the next 2 months and soon we had a new website ready to be published which fulfilled all our requirements.
We have continued to work together over the last two years and have made many improvements to the website, of which, adding French and German versions was the most significant. Sinéad is easy to work with and if I ever have any questions she is happy to help and I am happy to recommend her website design services at Ridge Design.”

“We had already had a website but needed it to be updated and to have it so we could update it ourselves. After meeting a couple of web designers we decided to go with Ridge Design as we felt Sinéad’s ideas and layout were the best for us. Sinéad was able to advise us on how the site would work best and some new features like the guest book page, that would attract more interest to our site and ultimately our B&B. Her attention to detail and quick turn around was brilliant as we needed the website to go live before the Summer season started. Even after the site was handed over to us Sinéad was still on hand if we had any queries. We would highly recommend Ridge Design and Sinéad to anyone.”
Yvonne Roe, Owner and manager of Coolakay House B&B.
“Its been a great pleasure working with Sinéad Godden of Ridge Design since I started my Chambres d’Hôtes, (Guest House) business in France in 2010. Sinéad designed the site so that it is easy to use, “idiot proof’ in my words.
I feel that she is there to hold my hand and guide me in a professional and caring way and nothing is of any trouble to her. I highly recommend her.”
Anne Lait, Owner and manager of La Source, Chambre d’Hotes, Perignac, France.
“Sinéad has worked with us here at SureWash on our website for the last two and a half years. During this time, Sinéad has assisted SureWash in every aspect of its online presence, right through from initial design and build process through to updates to our news page and changes to the website. Ridge Design provides a professional service and is always a pleasure to deal with. All requests are dealt with in a timely and professional manner and I would have no hesitation in recommending Sinéad and the services she provides at Ridge Design.”
