Aidan did a superb job building my website. He has an excellent eye for design and a seemingly perfect grasp of the software in both utilisation and troubleshooting. I would absolutely recommend him to any business looking for web design & hosting services.

The service we have received from Aidan at Lucid Rhino has been excellent. Our needs and requirements were fully understood, and Aidan was so patient and helpful throughout the development of our website. I would recommend Lucid Rhino to anyone looking to get their web presence improved.

Working with Aidan was great! Aidan kept me informed along the way, and we had a fair few conversations and online meetings to discuss ideas for the website layout and different functions etc, before he began building it. He was professional, trustworthy, and has delivered a great end product. Really happy with the website and the price was reasonable too. You can really tell he knows what he’s doing, and was able to add some unique features which gives a cool effect to the website.

Excellent service from Aidan at Lucid Rhino – Always a bit nervous when using new agencies but overall an enjoyable experience with a quality end product. I went for branding, web build and business cards. Initial brainstorming sessions really helped cement the vision and, from there, work was carried out on time and within budget. Really like the idea that I can make small edits to the site without the monthly fees of Wix and the like. A great option for small business. Highly recommended!
