“Before Kariba redesigned our website we had never had any business come directly through lilycomms.co.uk. Since Kariba took over design over a third of new business comes from our website. This has resulted in a £350,000 increase in direct sales turnover. Kariba listened to our every need and went above and beyond to design a website to our exact specification. We will continue to use Chris and his team for all our design work and I urge other businesses to do the same.”
James Waplington, Lily Comms - http://www.lilycomms.co.uk
“From a standing start I had an idea for Quick Move but wasn’t sure how to implement it. I approached a few web design companies in Yorkshire but it was Kariba who I decided to team up with. Chris was very approachable and forward thinking, he explored different strategies and concepts for my branding and within 3 weeks his team had concluded my website, branding and all associated stationary. I found all of Chris’s team extremely friendly (Jodie, Ben, Ed) and were always willing to help me when I needed it (im quite hands on!).
I’m extremely happy with the way the website has turned out, everyone compliments me on it. I have built up a great relationship with Kariba and we are now exploring our next property project! I would recommend to anyone looking for website design to speak to Kariba, you won’t be disappointed!”
Quick Move (UK) Ltd, Ross Counsell MRICS - http://www.quickmove.com
"I would just like to express a big thank you for our new branding, website and stationary. Start to finish, working with Kariba has been an absolute pleasure. Each member of the Kariba team has shown the same total dedication and professionalism to the task at hand. When we wanted to make changes or simply made suggestions they were quickly taken onboard and acted upon. And within a week of our website going live we had two enquiries, so it's well on the way to paying for itself already! Thanks Kariba"

A review by web consultant Martin Nolen of a site we built for one of our clients, Linked2Success
I have to say having looked carefully at your own site there is absolutely no point in presenting any findings or recommendations to you because frankly.... I don’t have any! Your online model is near flawless as far as I can see and your digital team (Kariba) have done a fine job. The SEO is good, the site looks great on a mobile, the calls to action and rich media are first rate on the site. It would be rather frivolous of me to be preaching the virtues of social media to you!
In summary, you have me beaten so congratulations to you and your team on a first class job.
Martin Nolan, Director, SME-360 LTD
"I cannot recommend Chris and his team highly enough for our new updated web site. The work was carried out quickly and efficiently and the staff were extremely attentive. The end result is a slick, clean and modern looking web site that portrays the quality of my company."
Mark, MRP Alarms - http://www.mrpalarms.com
“From beginning to end working with Chris and his team has been great, they are fantastic at what they do, always professional, helpful and fast to respond.
I’m very pleased with the results, we've had some good enquiries and we've gained some new clients.”

“Kariba, as usual you have excelled yourselves. The Christmas invitations are brilliant!! Thank you for doing such a great job.”
Steve Walshaw, Harrogate Luxury Studios
“I am so pleased to be working with such a great team now. The effort and input from Jodie and Khoi has been fantastic. Nothing is too much trouble and they are a real credit to Kariba. It is so refreshing to know that issues and actions are going to be handled and dealt with efficiently and promptly. I'm looking forward to continuing to develop our links and hope that you, like me, are excited about the future of The Africa House which is now in good hands!”
Jonathan Knocker, The Africa House - http://www.theafricahouse.com
“The new site you have created for us is fantastic and has far outweighed our expectations. Our existing website totally reflected our vision as a salon and our identity as a company, in both the language and its visual content.
When we approached you to take over the rebuilding of the original site from our existing graphic designer and an independent web designer, I was concerned that aspects of the build would be compromised dealing with just the one company. I couldn’t have been more wrong, you guys totally grasped what we wanted to achieve and needed no 'spoon feeding' at all, we pointed you in the right direction and you simply delivered... amazing!
Thank you so much for delivering what you promised and all on time and to budget and all so stress free!”
Terry Sowerby, Marketing Director, Baroque Hair - www.baroquehair.co.uk
To the Kariba team that made our lovely new website happen......we are all over the moon with the final result & want to thank you all for your patience and hard work!”

It’s hard not to like Kariba - their friendly and knowledgeable staff are genuinely great to deal with. They are keen to give great advice and will always find the correct solution for my business. Khoi & Jodie are more than happy to answer my many questions, quickly & efficiently. Add in the competitive pricing and it’s easy to see why we choose Kariba. Long may it continue!
Andrew Errington, Dalton Engineering Ltd - www.daltonengineering.co.uk
“With the launch of a new company name and complete rebranding, we needed to work with an organisation that could bring creativity and attention to detail to the whole project from start to finish. This was exactly what we got from Kariba. Very quickly they produced a very sharp company logo and worked closely with me to ensure that the website was exactly what I was looking for. We continue to receive excellent ongoing support and I would have no hesitation in recommending Kariba for any aspect of website design or rebranding.”
Ian Davis , Sales Director , Alert Innovation Ltd

Adrian Hill, Director, AAH Planning - Web site: http://www.aahplanning.com
Kariba were highly recommended to us, and they have lived up to those expectations. They listened to our needs and goals and interpreted them into a well structured and designed website, that is clean, clear and user friendly. It was great to have a company deliver on what they said would do, and it was done with commendable customer service.

They worked imaginatively with our somewhat vague brief and soon came up with appropriate ideas, one of which we immediately wanted to run with.

As a technophobe who just needs things to work, I was relieved to find Chris and his team just got it all done without the jargon and without the hassle. On top of all that I have got a great new website that I am confident will work wonders for my business. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Chris and Kariba to anyone planning on commissioning a new website... seriously first class stuff!
