UK Unredacted is an academic project working with over twenty non-profit organisations to publish thousands of documents relating to UK national security. Although we knew from the beginning that we needed a website to serve as a public archive, allowing visitors to search and browse large numbers of documents, we had little idea how to make this a reality. Rob has worked tirelessly to fulfil the vision for our project, bringing his experience, patience and creativity to design the new website. We are so pleased with the final product, which serves as a vehicle for our research as well as a hub for numerous organisations working in our field. We would be very happy indeed to recommend him to other academic projects and non-profit organisations.
DR SAM RAPHAEL, DIRECTOR, UK UNREDACTED
Rob is brilliant. He was quick to understand our needs, rich with supportive and thoughtful ideas and was fantastic in not just building our site but in helping us think strategically about how to use it. He also provides amazing ‘after care’, enabling us to adapt our site as our organisation grows. He’s a pleasure to work with – he listens, is positive, responsive, utterly reliable and just very, very good at what he does.

Rob Minto has transformed the Brookfield Primary School Website. He met with me and my team to get a true sense of what we were aiming for. He then worked creatively and efficiently to present suggestions. What he has achieved really captures our vision and values and we receive regular compliments about our site.
Among Rob’s most impressive qualities are his innovation, responsiveness and flexibility. Not only does he create new pages responding to events independently, he also invents solutions to our puzzles. He goes above and beyond, regularly exceeding expectations.

It was an absolute pleasure working with Rob on my first website. His calm, efficient and highly flexible approach instilled confidence throughout the process. He couldn’t do enough to help and I’m delighted with the result.
We are very pleased with the website that Rob Minto built for us in 2020. We asked for a simple and cheap option, we wanted people to be able to contact us through the website and we wanted the site to reflect the work we are doing to deliver rural housing in a beautiful area of the Lake District.
Rob built the site promptly and to our specifications. One of our team (with no previous experience as a site administrator) has learnt how to manage the site and is confident in doing so. During our first year we had a billing problem and it looked as if we were going to pay much more than we had planned. Rob was able to unravel the problem (and get us a refund) and he also found us a much cheaper option – very useful for a small organisation like ours.
Rob did a wonderful job of building my website: he really delivered on my brief but also had a creative input which helped achieve the polished professional look that has really helped to grow my business. In my initial meeting with Rob he really opened my eyes to all the possibilities and options available and he took the time to really listen and understand my requirements – especially the look and feel that I was trying to accomplish and also all the back-end tech to make sure the site is discoverable on Google. He delivered the site in the timeframe we agreed and on budget and I have had many glowing reviews since.
Rob was fantastic to work with for a complete novice and technophobe like me: he held my hand and helped me step by step to work out what I needed. He was fun, calm and kind whilst being proactive and gently reminding me of deadlines that we had set. I would highly recommend him.
Rob was dedicated, communicative and professional, turning this project around very fast. He really listened to my ideas and what I wanted, and used his expertise to translate that into an effective website that did exactly what I needed it do.
