What Duncan said:
"Red Deer Club launched it's website last month with the wonderful help of Design By Day and OH Digital.
When you hand something of your own to other people, it is a very daunting experience. My record label is more like an 'expensive hobby' than an international career but I have built it up from nothing with a lot of hard work. After two failed attempts to commission a website to represent the label, I had to pick the right people to make Red Deer Club site the best it could be.
The technical expertise of OH Digital and the carefully considered design ethics of Design By Day are pretty much a match made in heaven for the label and me. The whole process of planning, designing and building the site was super smooth.
Both companies responded very well to my requirements and in most cases exceeded my expectations. Work and amends that need doing are pretty much resolved within one working day. The value for money I have received on this project has been amazing. I now understand it is worth paying for quality.
As the first ever online 'statement' for the label’s five-year existence, it had to be the best it could be. The site is so easy to use and update, the backbone of Wordpress is pretty much unbreakable. It's simple layout and user-friendly interface make updating the site so easy. I now have two interns working on updates, just after a few lessons with Wordpress."
