This is what our clients are saying about our work

“John and Jonathan were enthusiastic from the start and understood exactly what image we wanted to portray to the public, taking the time to assess our needs and objectives.

I decided to use Nothing Ordinary to build a brand and a new website for my business as they came highly recommended.  I can honestly say that the attention to detail and the patience of the team resulted in a very professional website, and I am delighted with the end result. They are indeed ‘nothing ordinary’. They offer an excellent service. They were always happy to accept my feedback and give guidance on the artistic and practical running of the Website .

Many thanks to John and Jonathan.

Fiona Erwin, Owner, Fiona Erwin Curtains & Blinds

“We were more than happy with the friendly, professional service we received when creating the website for our B & B. We were offered great advice and appreciated the time taken by Jonathan and John to get to know us personally and how we wanted our business to be presented.

Everything we asked for was delivered to an exceptional standard. We are often complimented on how great our website looks and this is very satisfying, reinforcing that we made the right choice.

Although the site has now been active for some time we are still receiving excellent support whenever we need a bit of help or the site needs tweaking.

“We have worked with John Hamlin and the team at Nothing Ordinary for many years to design and manage production of our offline marketing and design.

We particularly value the time they invest in our relationship and in communicating regularly with us to understand our business, specific project objectives and to gather feedback on various stages of work in progress.

This always leads to a great finished product and we have no hesitation in continuing to engage them when we have a need.”

I have worked with John Hamlin, Creative Director of Nothing Ordinary for the last 10 years, because he has always demonstrated a clear understanding of our design and branding requirements, helping us to forge ahead, in what is a very competitive marketplace.

Within the last 2 years, John has been responsible for the design and implementation of our new sales and marketing literature, showing a fundamental understanding of our business, working closely with my sales and marketing team and producing results that work.

He has also been responsible for shooting all interior photography which he has carried out with the minimum of fuss and always to a meticulously high standard.

Adrian Hayes, General Manager, The Royal Scots Club

“Early on in our recruitment process for a creative and marketing agency, we met Nothing Ordinary and soon released that they where the team for us. We looked for agency that would work closely with us, keep us part of the process, utilise our internal team and above all else be open and honest.

We found all this and more when speaking with John and Jonathan. They are efficient with their time and show very impressive results.

They are dynamic and adaptable in their approach to most things, particularly relating to branding, planning and strategy.

We are embarking on a communications & PR initiative with them and I am encouraged by their ideas and enthusiasm.

The team at Nothing Ordinary are easy to work with and very professional, I look forward to continuing our relationship”.

Ross Allan, Owner, Milestone Garden & Leisure

Two years ago, John Hamlin carried out a very successful rebrand for us and since then, Nothing Ordinary have implemented all our brand and marketing requirements, with the design of our new website (and all of the clever bits behind the scenes) to the creative for our own regular mailshots, literature and even our signage and vehicle livery.

I work closely with the Nothing Ordinary team who are always on hand to offer advice, with creative thinking and wide ranging expertise, ensuring that our marketing and design activity is strategic, consistent and integrated.

Keith Marshall, Business Development Manager, PM Solutions

We commissioned Jonathan to progress and manage the digital marketing back in 2013. Since then we have seen continual growth and development online. His main focus has been on Search Marketing, stimulating more traffic from Google. 

He is flexible, integrates with our team and is now a core part of our marketing operation.

Graeme Paterson, Sales Director, Evoke IT

“John and Jonathan carried out our re brand enabling us to truly reflect the teamwork, expertise and overall professionalism of the business.

Central to this, has been a clearly defined implementation plan and strategy enabling us to manage the transition effectively.

We are now ideally positioned to move the business forward with confidence.

We continue to work with John and Jonathan on our new branding and cannot wait until we see the end result, when each piece of the jigsaw fits into place!

We cannot recommend them highly enough!

Sheryl Macaulay FCCA, Director, Douglas Home & Co Accountants

I have worked with Jonathan from Nothing Ordinary for some years now and I have always found him to be straightforward, energetic and pragmatic in his approach, in what is a complex area.

He shows a high level of personal and commercial integrity, which in this particular field, as with many areas of business, is very important.

Unlike many of his competitors, Jonathan has never tried to confuse us with jargon. He simply takes the time and effort to understand our commercial goals and focusses on delivering tangible results.

He is well versed in everything Google, whether via organic search or Google’s paid for results and he has a strong understanding of best practice in site architecture and page content.

Jonathan is an open team player and believes in sharing knowledge, discussing possibilities and analysing our website’s results and his own performance.
