For us Callia Web were perfect: they understood the meaning of community and how to work with a committee. Their vast experience of building community websites supported us in developing exactly what we wanted. There were no hidden extras; timelines only slipped when we were late, everything was done professionally and on time. It was crucial for us to use a company that understood database development and integration within WordPress and Callia Web fitted the bill perfectly. We will be keeping our relationship with Callia Web into the future and using them to provide ongoing support and maintenance. We have a website to be proud of.
I wanted to give my website a makeover and improve the navigation. Jo and Leeann worked with speed and efficiency to do this in just one day. Leeann understood my brief exactly and I loved her creative ideas. I am absolutely delighted! My new website is everything I wanted to be and more. I would not hesitate to recommend their services.
My new website is everything that I wanted it to be. I was delighted at how Callia Web guided me through the process from initial concept to final reveal. Jo has superb technical knowledge and worked to ensure the site would be user-friendly and also make a real impact on my clients. It was Callia Web who suggested the video to explain to potential clients how live illustration works. They recommended a great videographer and Leeann immediately understood my design brief and came up with unique visuals that were perfect for my brand. I felt in very safe hands with Jo who explained each stage of the build with excellent clarity and ensured the project ran smoothly. The site is already attracting new clients and I’m excited at the impact it is having on my business.
Callia Web produced a well designed, user-friendly website for my research network that will help us to raise the profile of our work. They were very easy to work with, made helpful suggestions to enhance the site and gave us training on how to make changes to the site. Highly recommended.
Lawrence House Museum is a volunteer led local history museum in North Cornwall. At the beginning of the pandemic the museum desperately needed to overhaul its online presence, rebrand and join the 21st century! We were fortunate to receive a recovery grant from South West Museum Development and engaged Jo to build a new website and Leeann to rebrand the organisation. Leeann effectively managed the differing opinions on designs with great understanding and created a brand which pleased everyone – no easy task! The site build itself was exceptionally fluid and well managed with careful consideration of our needs. The volunteers ability to update and navigate the site easily was of great importance and Jo provided us with excellent training in its use. In short the team at Callia Web were a pleasure to work with and we would recommend them without hesitation.
Well done for completing our new website in record time, to a very high quality. You understood our brief very well and used your creativity and skills to bring it to life. The reaction from volunteers and hirers has been extremely good. So well done again!
I was so incredibly impressed with the work that Callia Web did for me, designing my website. They were extremely professional throughout the journey of design and development. In particular, they listened carefully to the brief and produced an absolutely stunning and unique design, then kept me informed every step of the way, ensuring that each part of the journey was completed on time and to plan. Leeann’s design was so beautiful and Jo is a technical wizard! I also love the fact that Callia Web gave me all the tools I need to keep this beautiful website up to date myself – whilst keeping the design consistent. I’m a client for their ongoing web maintenance service too which is invaluable. I now have exactly the website I dreamed of and couldn’t be more delighted!
Being an Osteopath and not an IT wizard, I approached Jo at Callia Web to see what she could do to help me relaunch a brand new website to coincide with my osteopathic clinic relocation from Basingstoke to Hungerford. I was so impressed with how everything was set out and expected timescales. Their aftercare (which is hugely important for someone who isn’t computer orientated) is there if you need them. Or if you want more help that’s also available. Jo and Leeann have made a transition seamless, I’m so pleased – thanks guys 🙂
At Athelstan Museum Malmesbury, run wholly by volunteers, we needed to update our image and create a new brand. As part of this process we received a Business Diagnostic grant from South West Museum Development to develop a new website which would reflect our changing image. We wanted a web design company who could work with volunteers, be creative and flexible and help us reach our very tight deadline within our budget.
Jo and Leeann at Callia Web, our chosen web designers, were professional and communicative. They researched our museum and history, suggested innovative ideas, worked within the colour palette of our new logo, incorporated audio elements, and reported to us at the end of each week which kept us on track to meet the deadline. They trained a team of us to manage our bright new website ourselves, giving us the future sustainability we were looking for.
We are very proud of the new website which reflects the museum’s recent developments and image. It is easy for visitors, researchers and wider audiences to navigate and check for visits and forthcoming events. We have already received a donation and a new member through the website which means it is working for us. We would certainly recommend working with them.
With our thanks to Jo and Leeann at Callia. We would certainly recommend working with them.
We were really impressed with Jo and the team, including their efficiency, professionalism and creativity. They understood very well the mission of our organisation and helped us communicate our messages in a compelling and concise way through the website. A pleasure to work with and we definitely recommend Jo and the team to others looking for web developers!
I am so pleased I contacted Callia Web as I was looking for some help to design a website for my nutrition business. I had seen a couple of their beautifully designed websites online and was interested to see if they would be able to create something for me as well. I chose the Quick launch Package as I wanted a website that would look professional but could be built fairly quickly, all at a reasonable price and, although I knew roughly the look and feel I wanted, I needed the technical help to put it all together. Jo at Callia Web outlined the process for me with a clear proposal so that I knew exactly the costs and time commitments involved. We had a planning session about a month before we started on the build and she was very clear about I needed to prepare in that time to allow maximum use of the time we had together.
The build afternoons were split into four 2.5 hour online sessions and Jo was great at allowing me time to ponder over the fine detail, for example, which photo to use whilst, at the same time, giving the sessions direction and making sure that all points were covered. She was very patient and coached me through many of the technical aspects of the website build, showing me how to edit pages, photos and blog posts, something that was very important to me as I wanted to be able to manage my website myself on a day-to-day basis. I am delighted with the end result and feel that the vision I had in my mind has come to life on the screen. I would definitely recommend Callia Web and would not hesitate to use them again in the future.
It was a pleasure working with Callia Web and we are delighted with our fantastic new website. The team were organised and proactive, kept us up to date with progress and came up with some excellent design ideas and solutions which were beyond our expectations. We would very happily work with Callia Web in the future and would recommend them to anyone looking to update or redesign their website.
We are feeling very proud of our brilliant new website!
Check it out, and all the great things we have lined up for the 2019 season!
Many thanks to our superb web designers Callia Web and to the Arts Council England funded South West Museum Development Programme for the grant so we could build this excellent new digital showcase for Crofton Beam Engines and the Kennet and Avon Canal Trust.
I came across Callia Web via google search and then saw a website they developed (Sourdough school) – I was impressed and I immediately contacted Callia Web – the response I received was prompt, courteous and professional’ – speaking to Jo and Leeann was a very positive experience – they both took the time to understand my requirements and talk me through options – they were also patient with me as I gathered contents for my website. The website in itself is beautiful and I have received lots of positive comments from readers – I would like to say thank you to Jo and Leeann for making the web project a very positive experience – thank you.
Jo and her team create beautiful, clever websites. Not only that, Callia Web are highly organised and plan everything you might need or want, so you know it’s all going to be sorted – and when. Nothing is too much of a request. Callia Web is especially strong on such things as WordPress and design and they run a Facebook group for its client community. #recommended.
Callia Web did a great job building our church website especially as it was multi-lingual. Jo ensured the project went smoothly and always managed to solve any issues we had. I have worked with Jo on many occasions and she has once again delivered an outstanding result. I would definitely recommend Jo and her team if you’re thinking of having a website built!
“I love my website. It was more than I could hope for which is due to Jo’s expertise. Jo built the website in a day; it is sleek, professional and makes me look good. She had infinite patience with me and took care to ensure that the end result was fantastic, despite my budget constraints. She and Leanne were such a pleasure to work with and so helpful it made the whole experience stress free. Not only that, I can alter it myself. Callia Web are superb, I will be highly recommending them to anyone who needs a website.”
“Jo refreshed my website with new branding, giving it a much sharper, more professional look. She also spring cleaned behind the scenes and tied up a number of tekkie loose ends that had been really annoying me. She was very easy to work with and great value. I’m delighted with the new site, and it’s already resulted in a lot more enquiries about consultancy and event bookings, which was my main aim.”
“I knew the time was right to revamp my website and having used Jo a few years ago to build my website – Tapioca Tidy, I knew I wanted to use Callia Web again. Both she and Leanne understood immediately what I wanted to achieve and I am very proud of my revamped clutter-free Hoarding Disorders UK website. Thank you so much to both of you.”
“A professional and fresh approach to the potentially agonising task of building a new website. A two day, intensive workshop run by Jo and Leeann led to a fully functioning, creative and sensibly priced website for Manton Property UK. We are delighted with the results. Thanks Callia Web.”
“From the very first point of contact with Jo I just knew I was in good hands. She listened to what I wanted to do, came up with a cost effective solution, and with no fuss put together a timetable for completion. There was no messing about with pointless backwards and forwards meetings – I was able to sit with Jo over two sessions whilst she built my site in front of me. As a result it was up and running within record time, within budget and has completely transformed my business’ internet presence. The new Strictly Organised site is much admired and commented on. Jo knows what she is doing and offers a fantastic service. I am so pleased to have found her and can highly recommend her.”
“I am absolutely delighted with the new website that Jo and Leeann have designed for me. They transferred all of my old blog content with no problems, and have created a great new look and feel for my site which really suits my business. The website is easy for me to work with, and I now feel happy that I can showcase my cakes and share my recipes in a professional way. Jo and Leeann have both been fantastic to work with, and I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend their services.”
“I’ve been blogging at this domain since 2008, and have always done all my theme changes, updates and tech stuff myself. Whilst this may have saved me money over the years, it definitely didn’t save on the stress, and it’s also led to my site being slowed down by years worth of bad habits.
“Having Callia Web on call to redesign, update and untangle some of those messes has been a godsend. My site is faster, easier to navigate and the whole process has been a positive one. The best bit about getting help for the more technical aspects of my site, is that it frees up my time for content creation, which is the part that I love!”
“We wanted to revamp our web site and didn’t have a clue where to start. Callia Web were fantastic from the very start, they came up with a fantastic design which really suited our nursery ethos.
“Their patience and professionalism were outstanding, for two people who didn’t know anything about a website we needed a lot of support and Callia Web offered this at all times. The training and support are excellent and they are always on hand to help.
“I would highly recommend Callia Web they offer an outstanding service.”
“Jo and Leeann were a pleasure to work with from start to finish. They listened carefully to what I wanted and I’m absolutely thrilled with the results. They were also very patient with my (probably endless!) questions and I really appreciated the training given. It was important to me that I could make small changes to my website after launch, and I now feel confident to do that. I would highly recommend them. Many thanks to you both!”
“Our company, Japan Healthcare Info assists English-speaking communities in Japan to help them using Japanese healthcare services. Our objective was to revamp our (WordPress) website and engaged Callia Web to make this happen.
“We had approached other companies in Japan and also in the US before we decided on Callia Web. Jo was by far more professional, kinder in manner and very quick to communicate. Although we have no technical knowledge, Jo was very patient to listen to us and to understood our needs. We found the fee very reasonable for the services provided and are very happy with the refreshed site. We believe Callia Web’s work will help many people who need healthcare support in Japan.
“Working with Callia Web was an amazing experience for us and we are looking forward to working with them again.”
“Jo Waltham and her team will take your ideas and turn them into the most beautiful and functional website. Jo talks you through the process professionally and with great knowledge, you don’t have to worry about a thing – she just gets it. I couldn’t recommend her highly enough.”
“When we decided to create the Cambridge Food Collective, I spoke to a number of web developers but I have a long term relationship with Callia Web that drew me back for a number of reasons. Jo and her team are creative, flexible and want to get under the skin of the idea to really make the site look and function beautifully. They have a can do attitude and I was able to bounce ideas off the wall with them till we found the best design we wanted.
“The team were proactive in sourcing ideas, creating design layouts and implementing the functionality we wanted.
“I know that we would get value for money by working with Jo. Finding out that we are a finalist in the Cambridgeshire digital awards, as well as all the wonderful feedback we have had from site visitors on the design and ease of use of the site, has been great to hear.
“We feel we have got a site to be proud of. Jo knows me well enough to know that when I am ready to start tinkering on it, she will be called on to help again!”
“When we were looking to update our website we wanted a developer with the in-depth knowledge and experience to help and advise us. Jo (Callia Web) was very patient and understood our wishes and made sure that we knew what was possible. She also advised on the latest trends and knew what would work best for us. All in all a great job and we get compliments on the site on a regular basis.”
“I am so delighted with my Website. Thank you so much for all the work you and Leeann have done, and are continuing to do for me. I haven’t had to make any changes and have had lots of compliments about it.
“Just occasionally in life, I meet people who understand what I do, and the place from which I speak. I am not really an entrepreneur, as you know, but wanted something very specific for my Website. You are two such people. You listened, you understood and you did what you said you would do, in the timescale you set, and even my way of working didn’t phase you.
“Thank you very much for all your support and for making this a pleasurable venture. I just hope I can justify all your hard work and make a success of what I am doing. Please extend my thanks to Leeann and I wish you both well in your extremely effective business.”
“Callia Web were great. Jo certainly knows her business and was very patient with a computer/internet idiot like me. We did it all in one day at her office for a flat fee plus follow up costs as necessary. Very reasonable I thought. Had some excellent feedback on the new site.”
“Nordic Staff had decided to move on to the Genesis framework for the SEO benefits that it brings – so we needed to find experts who could make that happen. Many thanks to Callia Web who provided easily the most cost effective website refresh that we have ever commissioned.”
“What a refreshing and rewarding experience it has been working with Callia Web. Having been traumatised by another web company for an upgrade to our old website, I had considerable anxieties at approaching yet another web company to get rid of the awful site I’d been left with. I was looking for a complete redesign and also wanted to find a way to simplify the navigation.
“What a joy to find a small friendly company who actually listened to me and understood what was needed. The great ideas, the brilliant design and all explained in layman’s terms, made the whole experience enjoyable and rewarding. Jo and Leeann put in a lot of great work and all of us at Wrightstyle are delighted with the results. They’ve also given a couple of us the training we needed so that we can now add posts, pictures and newsletters with confidence. I can highly recommend them to sort out your website too.”
“Working with Jo and her team has been great – we worked on customising a template for my new web site. The way she steered me through all the steps, ideas and technical implications was much appreciated. I am delighted with the end product and have had loads of great feedback! thanks Jo.”
“Thankfully I came across Jo through a friend’s recommendation and I’m so grateful I found her. Jo has made my rebranding project seem effortless and streamline, through her technical know how, expertise and one to one tutorials. I can highly recommend Jo as she is definitely the go to person for an outstanding WordPress website. Thank you Jo!”
“I can highly recommend Jo Waltham and Callia Web. Jo’s enthusiasm and advice was second to none and I knew I was in excellent hands. I love my website and her technical knowledge and support really helped me with the design and style of the site and helped enhance the brand that it is supposed to promote. The site has received so many compliments and many of those who have seen it have already asked who designed it! Jo has also trained me in how to use the site myself so that I can amend and update where necessary and her calm approach and reassuring presence has meant that I am completely comfortable with the technical aspects. Thank you!”
“Working with Jo has been an absolute pleasure. She has been fully focused and has been done a truly excellent job. I found Jo to pay great attention to detail and found she really made sure she understood our business and route to market so that she could develop a site that truly meets our needs. This enabled her to proceed with the site with minimum contact from me. I found even after the website went live and we decided for some add on’s the professional and immediate response we receive were truly excellent. I have no problem to highly recommend Jo for any website work as I found her a true professional and a pleasure to work with.”
“I’m really pleased with the new Weston Communications website. Jo and the Callia Web team helped us establish which type of theme we wanted, ensured all of our current data was backed up and transferred safely and showed us, patiently, all we needed to know to set up the new site and adapt it to our needs.
“We’d definitely recommend the Callia Web team to anyone wanting a professional website without all the “oooh, this will cost you extra” or “we can’t do that, you’ll have to have this” or annoying stuff you usually hear from tech people!”
“Jo was recommended by a friend, and I would do the same for anyone looking for a cost effective professional website. Jo was easy to communicate with, showed interest in the business, kept to timelines and was patient when I was unsure what it was I needed. Thanks Jo!”
“Jo has helped me set up my new web-site and I am delighted with the outcome. Jo is both professional and personable and I really valued her expertise, practical advice, guidance, questions and ideas. Jo delivered beyond my expectation and has helped place my new venture on the Web.
“I have already recommended Jo to others and will continue to do so.”
“I am delighted with the redesign of my site. Jo was a pleasure to work with, turning my very exacting and demanding vision into exactly the site I wanted with speed and good humour despite some unavoidable frustrating technical problems along the way. Continued support has been first class, with design tweaks and tests of updates. It makes my life far easier knowing that I can rely on Jo to advise on, and sort out any of my technical problems.”
“Working with Jo made the process very smooth. We had a lot of ideas for our new site and she took everything on board and helped us achieve our aims. She also put in a lot of effort to develop a high level of customisation. She treats each client as an individual, and tailors the site around their needs. We are extremely happy with our site and would recommend Jo without hesitation.”
“Jo made the process of creating my own space on the internet easy and enjoyable. I explained to Jo all of my ideas and Jo was proactive in making my ideas a reality and also coming up with solutions to problems. I am delighted with the result and will be working with Jo again very soon.”
“I hired Jo to redesign my website which had become tired and outdated. I had a clear idea of what I wanted and Jo was able to understand my requirements and reproduce the vision I had created in my head and make it a reality. I have been particularly impressed at her flexibility in terms of time and her advice and aftercare has been second to none. If you are looking for someone who will listen to you and produce the website you want and not the one they want for you then Jo is the designer for you. She has given me what I wanted and more – exceptional value for money, reliable and flexible with an amazing work ethic. I am so glad I found her and I love my new website!”
