Our Recent Projects

What our Clients Say

We starting working with eckhoMedia towards the end of last year (2021), for a complete re-design of our website. Our current website was not meeting the business needs. We set a call with Rick and Simon, who both took the time to understand our business and created a fantastic looking website, which we are very proud of. The journey from start to finish was flawless and both Simon and Rick were on-hand every step of the way, to ensure the best possible outcome. I couldn't recommend them highly enough.

Kinetic Alliance Ltd

The eckhoMedia team were excellent throughout the redesign and redevelopment of our Jenkins Developments Ltd website. They were proactive keeping the project on track and punctual meeting deadlines. Would highly recommend.
