“If you’re looking for a website designer I can totally recommend Hey Pear! Sarah has created a website for my business that is beautiful, super easy to manage and excellent value for money. 

I wanted a website that was good looking and modern to showcase my illustration business – the last thing I wanted was a lifeless, corporate looking website.

Sarah has been great, she is friendly and professional and if I have any questions about managing my site she’s always happy to help. She also offers great insights into social media and marketing that have really helped my business.”

“Hey Pear comes highly recommended! Being a photographer I needed a website that I could use to show off photography and place where new and existing clients could reach me. Sarah was given complete control and she did not disappoint, Sarah kept me constantly updated throughout the whole process of building not one, but two websites! She was amazing and the best thing is the fact that she has given me ability to manage the website after completion so I can then add new images and add a blog to my page to keep clients up dated with new work and projects which is so perfect for me, and it is relatively easy for me to do which is a huge bonus! Sarah truly went above and beyond what was both asked and expected!! Can’t wait to work with Sarah again on other projects. Many many thank Sarah.”
