"Over the last 5 years Dan has been fantastic at digitally articulating my thoughts for a huge variety of projects. We’ve worked together on both old and new commercial products and Dan always manages to capture what I want for a brands’ identity, website, brochure or advert. Not only is he great at the ’simple message’ but has turned ’bedroom business brands’ into those well-known within the industry we operate in."

Simon Tandy, Business Development Manager, Motion Picture Solutions


"Dan was a beacon of good-humoured sanity after a disastrous first experience with one web "designer": he is a designer who also writes website code rather than a coder-writer who believes they’re a designer. He asked lots of questions, analysed the answers and produced four concepts before gently guiding me towards making what’s proved to be the right choice. With a few additions the essential layout has not dated over the years - which, speaking as a designer myself, is the hallmark of good, intelligent design; the clear layout and easy navigation still draws frequent and approving comments from clients. Dan is diligent, reliable and blessed with an ability to explain things to the non-technical. I can’t imagine working with anyone else."

Jeffrey Cleaver, Silver Pear Weddings


"Dan at Punctuate has been involved with my company for the last 5 years from building my website to providing me with regular support, updates and advice. He is always punctual in getting back to me when I have any queries or problems. Fantastic quality and service provided at all times and definitely money well spent! Have highly recommended him to other businesses and friends and will continue to do so."

Ben Heavers, Rent A Tent Oxford Ltd


"When I asked Dan to revamp my website he took away my vague ideas and came back with a new, freshly designed website which fitted in perfectly with my business. Since launching the website I have had more than a few people comment on good it was and how easy it was to navigate. Dan also helped set up a simple to use CMS platform so that I could quickly, and easily, make changes to pictures and text as my business also changed. Whenever I’ve had a question Dan is always quick to respond and I cannot thank him enough for his help."

Charles Willmer, Friars Court


"What an amazing thing communication is! Being half way across the world, Dan in New Zealand, myself in the UK, made no difference to Punctuate / Dan Hawes producing a great website, exactly to brief and which required very little tweaking. We have been delighted with the results of the website both in design and the format. In our mind’s eye this was just the kind of look we were hoping for - thank you Dan. Our early morning FaceTime call will be long remembered!"

Jo Nelstrop, Abbey Farm Weddings


"A year ago we purchased a small business and discovered that the computer systems and hardware were woefully inadequate and unreliable. We are not what you would call IT savvy and employed Dan to restore this side of the business. We found him to be very knowledgeable, reliable and practical as he solved problem after problem in his unflappable and cheerful manner. He was always quickly available when we had a problem and he solved our problems efficiently and completely. We would whole heartedly recommend Dan to anybody who has a computer problem, or IT installation needs, and wants it fixed promptly and permanently at a very reasonable cost."
