When I contacted Ant, he was very thorough, going though every detail with me for what I wanted from the web site on the phone In the initial brief I wanted a easy to use, modern site, but had a retro feel about it, using a mix of brown orange cream and black, and must use lots of hi res images. During the consultation he put me at ease having never been involved with building a web site before. Ant is very professional and takes enormous pride in what he does. He is very creative with his ideas, there is more than one string to his bow. During the build he was open to ideas from me about the layout, colour scheme and the overall appearance of the site, and didn't tire of the 'just jobs'. We have had some fantastic feedback from the site, I wouldn't hesitate in recommending him to anyone. I will definitely use him again for other projects. Its been good fun working with Ant, and I am sure he learnt something from a subject he initially knew nothing about. Have a look at www.Ajbengineering.Com.
Ant designed the website and brochure for the Cranbrook Film Society. Judge the excellent quality of the website for yourself at www.Cranbrookfilmsociety.Org. Ant was unfailingly kind, courteous and diligent - a pleasure to work with. He listened carefully to our brief and surpassed our highest expectations. Angela Co- chair CFS.
As a commercial truck dealer we had an existing website but we grew tired of other truck dealers having the same template as our website. The same developer had done most of the industries websites hence the repetitiveness. I found Clever Little Fishes and Ant after talking to someone about my website issues whilst on holiday. He kindly put me in touch with someone who then passed me to someone else, complicated but it worked. After making contact I gave him a brief and some ideas of what I wanted. What we got was, in my opinion, is outstanding. The brief was followed, and in some cases, improved. Ant was really easy to communicate with, if there was an element that I didn't like he would come up with an alternative. Price wise, I had and was prepared for a certain budget, when the quote came through I called him up to check that he could still do it, all of it, for what he said, I thought it was cheap maybe too cheap. I told him so but he's good at it, he does it all day, he knows his stuff. We as a company are extremely happy with what we have got. Our website is a shop window, we know how important it is to have a web presence so need one. We now have a clean, crisp, dynamic and fresh website to show off our wares. Would I use him again? In short, yes. We were/are impressed, Ant even hosts our site and he is there if we need or have any tech queries.
Very good experience with Clever Little Fishes designing my website. They listened to my ideas of what I wanted and worked with that and added suggestions I wouldn't have thought of, but were great ideas. Website was finished in good time as well.
Could not be happier with the work Ant has done for me. He created a fantastic website and has provided amazing customer service. I would strongly recommend Clever Little Fishes.
Clever Little Fishes were an absolute pleasure to work with, listened carefully to the brief, and produced an outstanding result with a very reasonable timescale. I will be recommending Ant and his team at CLF to my clients - in fact I've already done so.
Very highly recommended.
Anthony was very thoughtful regarding input for my website as I did not have a lot of money to invest I think I got extremely fair value for money and am supported in an extremely professional and expedient manner.
No concerns or gripes here and would recommend this company to anyone.
I have recently used Ant at Clever Little Fishes on two of my Wordpress websites. I have a small business and have tried using several web design companies over the years, this has left me being frustrated and very unsatisfied!
At last I have found a solution with Clever Little Fishes. I am so happy with the quality, great service and very generous support I have received.
I would strongly recommend this company!
Ant has been excellent to work with and we were really happy with the result. Would recommend to anyone. Benenden Heating
After researching and comparing a number of local web-designers, I commissioned Clever Little Fishes to create a website and logo for my communications consultancy, having been impressed by Ant's commitment and enthusiasm. CLF immediately grasped my brief, embraced my demands without question, and delivered exactly what Colourful Communications required. The process was simple and pain-free, which much tolerance from CLF for my many changes and tweaks. I am delighted with both the logo and the site itself. So much so, I have recommended Clever Little Fish to a number of my clients.
I approached Clever Little Fishes for help with the design and build of a website plus SEO. Ant was very generous with his time and was as keen as I was to get the look and feel of the website just right. Ive ended up with exactly what I was after plus top ranking on Google etc. Would not hesitate to recommend.Terry - Kleen Kut Doors
Ant really tried to get inside the Bayleaves of Appledore country florist unique selling point and psyche, and I felt he involved his family in working together to get it just right.I liked best that we went back and forth getting the grammar, spelling, placement of photos and tel number just right until it was perfect.I'm really proud of my new website, and happy to show it off to friends and any random networking opportunities. I think it was really good value too.I believe Ant will continue to look after my site, business and any upgrading well.
I appointed Clever Little Fishes to build a website for my holiday home in Cornwall. I liked the personal approach that I was given from the initial brief to the end product. The main objective for me was to have a professional, clean and clear site that generated bookings for me. I got exactly what I asked for. I would highly recommend Clever Little Fishes.
I could not have set up my website without Clever Little Fishes.Fantastic support and advice along the way, and a stunning product at the end! Thank you.
I contacted Ant at Clever Little Fishes to help me with SEO on my website. He was friendly, helpful and professional at all times, and explained things in terms I would understand (eg. I don't understand HTML!).As well as a SEO overhaul on my website, he helped me set up Google Shopping and Wordpress blog link to my own website. He also gave me advise on how best to SEO as I continued to grow my website. I would fully recommend Clever Little Fishes. I found Ant easy to talk to and his service is excellent value for money.
From the start the team at Clever Little Fishes offered a very bespoke service by delving into great depth with their discovery questionnaire, to ascertain our companies need and inspirations. We gave a very them a very specific brief but also gave them the freeness to show off their professional touch. We were kept fully up to date throughout the process of the build which made the whole experience exciting as we were able to see the project grow and develop. We were blown away with the final fished product, It had far surpassed our expectation and had hit the nail on the head and had include every single one of our original requests and preferences. As we are a relatively new company we were running on a relatively tight budget, We were shown the costs upfront and to our surprise the final invoice fell under what we had expected even though the product was far more than expected. A highly recommend company with a great balance of friendliness, affordability and above all the ability to deliver.
I cannot say enough about Ant from Clever Little Fishes. I own a small, local pet shop and was doing my own website via Yahoo Site Builder, and it was a MESS! I spoke to loads of freelancers, but Ant was the first who actually took an interest in my business - he said it sounded like a fun project! I wanted my site to be fun and friendly, not cold and impersonal like so many I'd seen, and Ant understood that straight away. I filled out a questionnaire about what styles I liked and didn't like and the general vision I had for it. Ant took that away and came back with exactly what I wanted and more.He really put a lot of thought into it. He worked with my budget and gave me a lot of helpful advice. He made sure the site was readable on mobiles and tablets, and he did a training session with me on Skype so I could see exactly what to do to make changes and additions. He is so knowledgeable and patient that I felt comfortable throughout the whole process, even though I was quite stressed at the beginning. He is a very calming influence, and a really nice guy, too! The communication from start to finish was excellent, and everything was completed in a very timely manner.I was so happy with his work that I have signed up for his hosting as well. I have no hesitation recommending him to everyone-from novice to professional. You won't be sorry!
I asked Ant to develop a website for my plant nursery to showcase the plants I sell. I wanted the website to be attractive and simple to navigate and I also needed to be able to manage it myself so that I could make changes as my range of plants expanded. The final product fulfils the brief completely and I am very pleased with it. (www.beechbridgeplants.co.uk). I can highly recommend Clever Little Fishes if you are looking for someone to design a website for your business.
I tasked Clever Little Fishes to create my own website from scratch, with the result that I now have a stylish website that is just what I was looking for. This came about through Ant's attention to detail, desire to get things just right and in-depth knowledge of web development. I would recommend him to anyone.
It took a while to find a web designer that could not only design a perfect website, work hard and fast to meet all of our requests along with his own clever and intelligent ideas and all the important bits you need from your web designer, but to also have someone you can have a friendly, 1 to 1 chat with where he will break down the crazy web lingo into plain English! Thanks Ant and the team for your hard work. We will be asking Clever Little Fishes to update our other websites too!
From start to finish it was not only quick and painless, it was an enjoyable project to work on. Clever Little Fishes got the design and look spot on first time and now we have a great looking website that is easy to navigate. They were always quick and helpful and even provided training on how to use the Contents Management System. Very happy with the process and our new website!
I wanted to up-date our existing website, but had no idea where to start.I like to use local business, so when I saw the advert for Clever Little Fishes in our local paper, I decided to pick up the phone - and I'm so glad I did!I found Ant very easy to work with, and he gave me the confidence to completely re vamp our old website.I have had positive comments about the new website, and I only wish I had found Ant months ago!

Ant provided me with a brilliant website...like magic. I was stuck for inspiration, and know little regarding computers etc, he advised and created a sleek new site, within time and budget, which does the job perfectly. There was great communication at every stage and he was more than happy to help and explain along the way. I would thoroughly recommend using Clever Little Fishes for any of your website needs!
I LOVE my website and really enjoyed working with Clever Little Fishes. I felt like my project was important and my requests were always completed quickly and without any hassle. Everything turned out great! I appreciate the extra care, input and guidance that were given throughout the process. Thanks CLF
Excellent service; very professional and timely. Easy to work with, friendly and very flexible. Extremely satisfied with finished product. Ant gave clear explanations on using Wordpress (my first time) and great advice. Will be re-hiring.

I had a website put together by Anthony Tomlinson of Clever Little Fishes back in 2013. He was very efficient and had some very good ideas, I would be happy to recommend him.
Just had a fabulous website designed by Clever Little Fishes! As a beauty therapist, technology is not in my every day world or comfort zone, but Clever Little Fishes took all the stress out of it! Excellent service, great communication, very approachable and got it finished to a very high standard remarkably quick! Many, many thanks! Would recommend to anyone! Thank you!
Clever Little Fishes did a fantastic job designing/creating my photography website.
Their service is straight forward and they make alterations/amendments fast so you can get your website launched quickly. Very friendly and easy to work with - thanks little fishes :).
I really can't praise this site highly enough. I received a superbly efficient service and my website was up and running within days. I'm not at all technical but all the options on getting my website looking how I wanted it were explained clearly as were all the costings. CleverLittleFishes lives up to its name and provides a 'whale' of a service.
What can we say! Ant is one hell of a clever little fish. We gave him a concept (apologies Ant - not the easiest of one to start) and he came up with a supercool idea helping us stand out from the crowd. I'm pretty sure this Clever Little Fish will soon need a bigger tank!
Ant Tomlinson is an extremely entrepreneurial website designer with a huge interest and pride in his local community. His website development and visionary skills are second to none - and as for his patience...! Ant immediately understood what I wanted from my redeveloped website and did a lot of research in order to fulfil the vision! I thoroughly recommend Ant for his insight and professional and prompt delivery as well as the aftercare service.
