Moyna Flannigan

"When I approached Clooti I had a very particular idea of the look I wanted for my website but not a clue about the technology. Clooti took my brief and to my delight designed a website for me which was just what I was looking for- it's elegant, clear and easy to use. Their questionnaire was an important part of the process, focusing me on the features I really wanted from the website and giving them a much clearer idea of my ideal design. Elaine and Rachel were wonderful to work with, patient about explaining the language of website design, accommodating changes, and, they got the job done on time. I highly recommend Clooti as website designers. "

Our website looks and works exactly as we wanted it to."

Nicola Murray - Artist

"Clooti give you more than they say on the tin—namely a highly tuned sensitivity to your individual aims and priorities, the ability to translate technospeak into plain english with patience and humour and a speedy response to all communication. As an independently minded visual artist it was a big decision for me to employ web designers to build my new website; I deliberated for a while over how much sense it made economically and aesthetically.
I'm pleased to say I am delighted that I decided to use Clooti. The process felt quite creative and collaborative and—despite the endless work of getting content together—it was sometimes even fun. There's absolutely no way I'd have ended up with a site like it left to my own devices. I'd heartily recommend investing in their expertise."

Jan Bee Brown

"The Clooti Girls really saved my website! When I moved up to Edinburgh in 2013 my website was dysfunctional, its original designer had gone AWOL and the host was grumbling. I was about to apply for an important National Museums job opportunity but my web presence was tatty and inconsistent - I needed a drastic makeover and quick. Terrific word of mouth led me to the 6th Floor of St Margaret's House where the Clooti Girls sorted me out at the double and at a price I could afford. They held my hand, mopped my brow, I did get that job and I continue to update my user-friendly website blog regularly. I continue to appreciate their customer support and good humour and recommend them highly."

Jan Bee Brown, Curator and Designer

Cullercoats Brewery

"Thank you Clooti for providing an excellent service to us as a new business. You helped us sort out the half baked website we had originally, improved the design and functionality (giving us helpful choices, but not too many, so as to make it daunting!) and handled change of hosting smoothly.
You also provided excellent training (and invaluable notes for future reference) so that we can manage it ourselves - and all for a very reasonable price and with clear terms and conditions. I will recommend you without hesitation. Thank you."

Anna Scantlebury, Cullercoats Brewery Limited

"Leave it to the experts" couldn’t ring truer in relation to websites and Clooti. I was armed with a limited budget and a tight deadline when I knocked on their door, and they delivered a great accessible website for me on time, which they’ve constructed so that I can maintain it myself with minimum confusion. They were very approachable yet professional, efficient, extremely helpful and knowledgeable, and no problem are ever too big or small for them! They see things through from start to finish, offering great value for their service. Great gals to have your website needs entrusted to. Clooti is the booty!"

Classic Camper Holidays

"Getting our website absolutely right was vitally important for the success of our business. Being primarily an online business, often times the website is all prospective customers will see. It was therefore key to make sure that we successfully conveyed our brand and key messages clearly and in a way that differentiated us from the competition. Clooti have been fantastic in helping us explore these issues, coming up with ideas and ultimately building a highly professional, clear and easily navigable website. Clooti have also been great helping us incorporate changes to the site as a result of customer feedback to help us streamline the bookings process and make the customer experience even better."

Colin Gordon, Massage Therapist, Edinburgh DTM

Fiona Maher

"I had thought about getting a web-site for some time and was fortunate enough to meet Rachael & Elaine in person at a social event. From the initial consultation through the development phase I felt there was real empathy and understanding for my work and I was kept informed and involved at all stages of the process. I'm delighted with the finished results - within days of the site going live it has already helped me secure an exhibition opportunity and seeing my work presented this way has given me a new confidence - I can wholeheartedly recommend CLOOTI web design services."

Tansy Lee Moir

"I had a fair idea of the way I wanted my site to look and feel, but absolutely none about how to make it happen. Clooti took the time to work out exactly the best type of site for me and guided me sensitively and expertly through a clearly defined process. This ensured that in just a few weeks I had a superb site and the skills to maintain it myself. I'd imagined getting a website to be difficult and complicated - Clooti made it easy and I wish I'd done it sooner! Thanks."

CRC Medical Writing

"I am delighted that I chose Clooti to design my website. A simple, static website, which was easy to navigate and had a clean, fresh look was what I wanted and that is exactly what I got. Clooti quickly understood my needs and came up with excellent ideas. I dealt mainly with Elaine, who was always very professional, friendly and helpful. I would thoroughly recommend using Clooti not only for web design, but also for designing matching stationery."

Company Director - CRC Medical Writing

Shazia Mirza - Comedian

"It has been a great experience working with Clooti.
I don't know why anyone would go anywhere else.

I vaguely knew what I wanted for my website but I wasn't sure. Clooti came up with some great ideas and allowed me to change things till i was happy with what i wanted.

They had great ideas and suggestions and created a site for me that is self manageable and easy to use. They created instructions for me to mainatin the site my self, and add things as I wanted. I now have a striking, bold and classy site, that looks like a lot more than I paid for it!"

Shazia Mirza, Comedian and Columnist

The Whistling Tortoise

"It has been a pleasure to work with Clooti, they have really taken into consideration all our requirements, given us a very personal service, and were particularly good and patient with all our last minute requests, changes and confusions!

We wanted to sell online but didn’t want to risk a huge financial investment.

Clooti have provided us with a website which is simple to use but has plenty of room for growth. We are adding new products every day, and we can do this ourselves with no web experience.

Clooti prioritises accessibility and in our line of business it was unthinkable to ignore this aspect of our website.
Also, within a few weeks Clooti made huge improvements to our search engine ratings.

Thank you Clooti!"

Katie Hart, The Whistling Tortoise

Rachel George

"I'm truly delighted with the site; it does exactly what I wanted; it looks absolutely great and works like a dream. The fact that I can update & edit content easily and quickly without great technical knowledge, expensive software or telephone assistance is brilliant, and exactly what I was hoping for. It is clean, stylish, minimal and very easily navigable. I'm very very happy with it, it's perfect; many thanks!!!"
