What our clients say about us…

Periscope are professional and work to high standards but in a gentle and encouraging way… I think they are totally brilliant, the website surpassed all of my expectations.

Caroline Knowles, Professor of Sociology, Goldsmiths University.

We came with a huge brief for an educational website and only a few weeks until our launch date. Over emails, in person, and on calls they were never anything other than upbeat and insightful and the site they designed is better than any we could have hoped for. It was a real pleasure working with them. If you have the chance, I’m sure you’ll say the same.

Dr Malachi McIntosh, Lecturer in Postcolonial and Related Literature, University of Cambridge

I have worked with Periscope over the last couple of years in completely re-designing our web offering. They have always been excellent in conceptualising what we require and offering creative, practical solutions for sometimes complex pathways to our audience.

Jeremy Wilcox, Head of Sales & Licensing, BBC Active

I really am very grateful for all your input and I am forever saying in the office that I am so glad we found you! You have had such an impact on my business and our approach to everything, both in terms of what we have done so far with you and the plans that we have into next year and no doubt beyond.

Michelle Hillier, Company Director, Unique Training Solutions
