"Funding criteria and Devon County Council policies meant that the selection of our web designer had to be made through a rigorous interview process. Metazoa delivered an outstanding presentation despite that fact that, for geographical reasons, it was conducted over the phone. From Edinburgh, the concepts and proposals were demonstrated on the internet to the interview panel in Devon, who were impressed with Metazoa's obvious communication skills.
Professional throughout, Metazoa has interpreted our brief beautifully and produced a website of which we are extremely proud. We like to show off about every aspect of our website, from it's engaging design and intuitive layout to its functionality and ease of use, both for internet users and those who maintain the site using the content management system.
I would definitely recommend Metazoa to anyone needing a website.
