On behalf of Recruiting in Motion, I really need to commend you and your team at Purple Penguin for a great job in building our new website. The features are top-notch and the layouts and design are more than we hoped for. In addition to the amazing look and feel of the site, you have been superb in your response-time throughout the development stages and I am always pleasantly surprised at how quickly you get back to me - even considering the 6 hour time difference between Canada and the UK! We look forward to a long relationship with you and your team - keep up the great work!

I cannot recommend highly enough the service provided by Chris & the team at Purple Penguin. He has been very patient throughout the process of our new website build and the finished product far exceeds my initial expectations.

Bill Andrews
My experience of working with the team at Purple Penguin Media has been nothing short of exceptional. Given that we were on a strict budget, and required a number of bespoke features and advanced functionality within our recruitment website, they were able to ensure we went live within 3 weeks! They have been incredibly efficient, proactive and have always been able to meet our exacting needs during the entire process. Since we have been live, the level of support has been excellent and I cannot recommend them more highly. If you need a recruitment website, designed and built to a high specification, on a budget, and within a short space of time, then a call to Purple Penguin Media really is the only one you need to make!

Although we have employed Purple Penguin for marketing assistance previously, this is the first time we purchased a website through them and it really was an easy process. Chris is very helpful and accommodating and his team have created a fantastic design that really met all of our requirements.The content management system really is user friendly and simple to use and already seems a huge improvement on our previous recruitment website (build by a different development company).We look forward to continuing to work with Purple Penguin.

Developing a fully-featured recruitment website proved to be easier than we imagined. Chris and the Purple Penguin team were very structured and methodical in approach - always keeping us informed, always responding to our queries and always delivering practical solutions on time and within budget. The result is a great website that will, I'm sure, continue to evolve. I have absolutely no hesitation in recommending the Purple Penguin team.

Louise Selfe
At Gravity, we specialise in supplying staff into the video games industry, a highly technical and creative niche. So it was vital that our site lived up to the expectations of our target market in terms of design and functionality. We needed something creative, fresh, technically excellent and above all, professional. Fast Recruitment Websites met all of our needs and did it efficiently and at a highly competitive price. I would unreservedly recommend them to other companies seeking an affordable, specialist web design agency.

Michael Hobson
After our UK parent company commissioned Fast Recruitment Websites to build their new recruitment website, we kept a close eye on developments. As soon as we saw the site we knew we had to have one for our office! The process was so easy and painless - they created a version of the new site branded specifically for our US branch and delivered it all within days. The service was outstanding and the site is of exceptional quality, especially for the price. Great work Fast Recruitment Websites!

We conducted a lot of research into web design and found Purple Penguin Media's site very clear on what was on offer whilst at the same time showing some fantastic examples of previous work carried out. They were very easy to work with and very quickly turned our ideas into an all singing all dancing recruitment website with its own recruitment software system! We found from start to finish PP are professional and a company worth working with!

Jason Norman
We are totally blown away by the ease in which a professional website for a recruitment agency can be built and at such an incredibly reasonable price too!! We searched high and low for a website to update our previous one and found the pricing options for even a basic functioning website with vital elements for our industry so far out of our budget. We fortunately found Purple Penguin Media and the process flowed effortlessly and simply from the start. We are very pleased with our end result. A very BIG thank-you to the whole team and Chris for all their efforts in getting us a new web presence with all the functionality any recruitment agency could wish for. We definitely and heartedly recommend this company for your recruitment website design.

Arlene Wynn
We were introduced to Purple Penguin Media and have used them to design, produce and distribute a weekly e-shot and a monthly newsletter. The standard of work which they produce is excellent and extremely good value for money. Special mention has to be give to Chris Potter, their Creative Director. Chris is exceptionally good at his job. He replies to emails almost immediately, is always available to take calls, his work is accurate, he is happy to make recommendations and best of all he is really easy to work with. Several recipients of our newsletter have asked who we use and I have had no hesitation in recommending Purple Penguin Media.

Thank you for all the hard work you have put in to creating our new logo and website, I am absolutely thrilled with the results. From our initial consultation you understood the look I wanted to achieve and have worked tirelessly on this, inputting your expertise and experience to deliver a range of products that I am confident will have the desired impact on our clients. Having worked with members of your team in the past I already knew the service I was going to receive would be second to none, however my expectations regarding the end products have been completely surpassed. I can’t thank you enough for your patience and commitment to working on this project for me and for it never being too much trouble to make those ‘final’ changes to get the design just so. Your knowledge and guidance has been invaluable throughout this whole process, and I would recommend Purple Penguin Media Ltd without doubt to any business considering undertaking any design / media work.

Samantha Baker-Mediratta
We have been delighted with the service we have received from Purple Penguin and Chris in particular. We had no previous experience of designing and building a website and so needed an element of hand-holding. Chris has been hugely supportive and very attentive throughout the entire process. We suggested a few ideas with regards to the look and feel of the site at the outset and Chris has managed to convert that into a product which we believe works really well. We were looking for a “shop window” for our recruitment business and a site that is professional, informative and easy to navigate. We are delighted with the end result.
Samantha Baker-Mediratta ( Baker Creed Recruitment )
Andy Price
We were absolutely delighted with service we have received from Purple Penguin Media, both in terms of efficiency, web design concepts and website functionality. From the outset the team understood our requirements and translated them into a design that exactly matched our needs. I would have no hesitation in recommending Purple Penguin Media and certainly plan to use them further.
Andy Price ( ITSS Recruitment )
Michael Monaghan
A first class service was given to me in the production of my new website. Purple Penguin has always been available on the phone or in person if I have needed any additions, training or anything I'm not quite sure on. This company is a very professional outfit and it has been a pleasure in dealing with them. They have taken all the stress out of my website and the administration of it is a breeze. I would highly recommend them to anyone else who wants a first class website. Thank you Chris and the team.
Michael Monaghan ( M3 Lettings )
Chris Hayes
As a brand new business I required a media company that would produce a professional, easy to use and succinct website with not too much input from myself as time was precious at that stage. The team at Purple Penguin were definitely able to do this for me and within a short period of time the required site was up and running. With the breadth of media services that Purple Penguin can offer I am confident that they will be a key business partner for the organisation going forward.
Chris Hayes ( CH Associates )

Chris at Purple Penguin was fantastic - he came up with some really great ideas for our website and we are delighted with the end result. He kept us up to date with his progress and worked hard for us within our tight timescales. Originally, we had chosen a simple design for our site but Chris came up with something much more modern, user friendly and professional looking without being asked to. The end result is great; the web site is now working really well for us and Chris has been supportive of any changes we needed, any amendments we wanted and has talked us through the admin process without confusing us with jargon. I would highly recommend Purple Penguin to anyone looking for a professional yet cost effective web site.

I have worked with Chris and the team at Purple Penguin on a number of Website projects including link building SEO campaigns which have got me to No.1 on Google for competitive keyword phrases. Their professionalism is a breath of fresh air and by far the best providers we have ever had the pleasure of working with.

Just a quick note to say how pleased we are with the website and the service we received. After being let down by a local company we turned to the guys at Purple Penguin Media and I have no hesitation in recommending their services to any recruitment company owner looking for a quick turnaround site with great software and functionality at affordable prices. Chris Potter is a pleasure to work with and his dedication and ability to manage timescales on business critical projects is worth it’s weight in gold.

Darren Robinson
As a local recruitment agency we were struggling to attract traffic to our website through search engines. After speaking to a number of firms I decided to place our SEO work with Chris as he didn't bamboozle me with technical jargon and actually knew the recruitment industry very well. This has turned out to be very successful and we now appear on the first page of searches right up there with the national recruiters. In addition to this Chris has worked with us in a number of ways to enhance our image designing new email signatures and our online promotions. Without a doubt I would recommend Chris and his company to any of my clients and look forward to working with him on our next project, a new website.
Darren Robinson ( Agency Careers )
Richard Bruce
We wrongly assumed that getting a new recruitment website would be a drawn out and expensive process. Purple Penguin Media were able to turn out a professional cost effective website in less than 48 hours. The process was quick, professional and painless and we were impressed with the service, attention to detail and understanding of the recruitment industry. We have full control of job postings, web content, news items, images and Search Engine Optimisation.

Richard and Charlie
We're delighted with the look of our new site and have had fantastic feedback from everyone who's seen it. In North Leeds' competitive lettings market we know we have the ideas and experience to stand out but needed to make sure that our website did too. Chris at Purple Penguin was brilliant, gave us lots of great ideas and suggestions and pretty much did everything we asked of him - which was often quite a lot! I'd have no hesitation in recommending Purple Penguin and we are so impressed that we are currently also using them for all of our design and stationary work. Can't recommend highly enough.

Having approached several companies to develop a website for my niche recruitment business it was clear to me that Purple Penguin Media were head and shoulders above the rest. They listened to what I wanted and took a keen understanding in the Sinopack brand and subsequently have customised a fantastic site that represents Sinopack in an extremely professional light. Purple Penguin Media acted in a prompt and professional manner and as a result Sinopack now have a web presence that exceeds my expectations.

Lynnette Smith
I have been planning my website (in my head) for quite a while, but being constantly busy gave me plenty of excuses not to face up to this daunting task. As my business has grown more and more people asked me for details of my site, I knew I had to do something and the thought if I'm honest scared me, I didn't know where to start. Then I found Purple Penguin Media.I gave them the information and they were great; they did it all, the technical bits of which I had no knowledge etc. They were very patient with me fitting into my timeframe which fitted around the demands of my business. Because of the nature of my work, I was very specific about the look and feel I wanted for the site and they followed my directions exactly. I'm really happy with the finished product
Lynnette Smith ( Big Talk Education )

We have received a great service from Chris and everyone at Purple Penguin on the production of our replacement website. We launched the new website in November 2009 and have gone from strength to strength since then. Customer service is second to none and any problems or alterations to the site are done swiftly without delay. Sometimes changes are made in a matter of minutes. If we have a question we know we can just pick up the phone or email and Chris is there to help. It is very reassuring to have that kind of support. We now have a website that is second to none. Our customers love it and find it easy to use and often comment on how fantastic they think it is.
