Richard spent a few days on my website fixing speed issues. Very professional service, great communication throughout and more importantly for me, good to work with. You need someone you can trust when you give them something as important as your website, Richard will fix the issue as soon as possible. I now have someone who I can trust if I have any issues whatsoever with my site, this in itself for me, is priceless.

Wedding Photographer - 5* Google Review
As the owner of a Paignton-based retail business, I turned to rhwebdesigns when I wanted to enter the world of ecommerce and take my trade online. Rich created a brilliant website from scratch in no time at all - and at a fraction of what I expected such a site to cost! He listened carefully to everything I wanted and delivered an amazing site that has transformed my business, significantly increasing revenue almost overnight. Although I am new to online retail, Rich was insightful and helpful throughout and has achieved more with the website than I ever dreamed possible. Rich also created a bespoke app for price-checking items on Amazon and ebay. This was a real game-changer for the business, literally saving 100s of man-hours each month. This not only freed up staff to pursue other work, it allowed us to find 1000s more sales opportunities. He really knows his stuff and comes highly recommended. Thanks, Rich!

Richard brings a good grasp of business requirements and a high degree of technical expertise, rigour and organisation to the ecommerce solutions he deploys. He is dedicated, goal orientated with excellent knowledge of the eCommerce business and a pleasure to work with. Most recently he was key to ensuring that both the Suttons and Dobies site migrations went smoothly in terms of migrating our technology from one platform to the other.

I was recommended RH Web Designs through a friend and I was not disappointed. Richard is extremely dedicated to getting the right look and feel for what you need your website to do. He goes above and beyond for all customers which I was really impressed with. I recommended his services to other businesses. My website was built really quickly and the care and attention to detail that was taken was second to none. I am always getting compliments from customers about how professional my website looks. I have even asked RH Web Designs to build another brand new website for a potential up and coming project I have. Highly recommended.

Richard was everything we could wish for from a client's web developer. Knowledgeable, fast, proactive & opportunity led. He has been a consistent & reliable support resource & on us double-checking his site & tracking amendments after go live, they are typically in strict accordance with the brief & error-free (not something we see all too often).
