“We appointed Idea 188 to re-design the website for our Security Company, Entourage Security. The design was perfect to our brief, corporate but with flair and creativity. They where very patient and guided us with ease through the whole process. I would highly recommend. We will definitely be using Idea 188 for our next project.”

I am incredibly pleased with the result, and very grateful for Alessia's patience and flexibility in responding to our changing timelines, and corrections.
I would highly recommend Idea 118 to anyone looking to design, or redesign, a website.”
