What our clients say

  • “Ember always go the extra mile to ensure project briefs are met successfully. They are faultlessly professional, offering insight and technical understanding at every stage of development. They’re also great guys who bring bags of enthusiasm to the table. We would highly recommend them.”

    Sarah Watkins - Marketing Manager, Osborne Pike

  • “We approached Ember to design and develop our custom online city guide. We were very pleased with the logical approach taken in building the site. They were always happy to discuss any detail of the build, and kept us up-to-date throughout. In short, Ember over-delivered in every aspect and we are pleased to have a continued relationship with them.”

    George Arnold - Owner, Flyerfly

  • “We worked with Ember to complete a major technology build, and our expectations were truly met. After assimilating our requirements through a detailed specification documentation, Ember set about building our website. The staff were excellent and always asked questions if scope was ambiguous, and the website was built to time and budget expectations. Our internal testing proved that the Ember team did a great job on the project, as very few errors with the build were logged. With the completion of these iterations, we were really pleased with the final result.”

    Tom Polden - Head of Saas, Lorica

  • “Ember are great! They have quickly become our ‘go to guys’ when we need to produce anything online. Their instinctive understanding of every brief, technical knowledge and gracious support throughout each project have proved invaluable and we wouldn’t hesitate to recommend them to others”

    Sass Joyner - Client Services, Bright Butler

  • “Ember understood all our requirements and were extremely helpful and patient and worked to our tight timeline. The site looks fantastic and the content is now a lot easier for us to manage and for customers to use.

    Since going live Ember have been very accommodating with any problems we’ve had with the day-to-day running of the site, guiding our team step-by-step with any alterations that needed to be made.”

    Joanna Rhodes - Owner, Hayford & Rhodes

  • “We have worked with the Ember team on a variety of technically challenging online projects, directly with our clients. They’re a dynamic outfit, always able to deliver beyond expectation, with astute technical ability, on budget and in good humor.”

    Warren Cuff - Owner, Ralph Media
