I have worked with the digital spotlight team on an eclectic range of business projects while working in the Centre for Entrepreneurship and Durham University Business School. Our clients have encompassed regional, national and international companies, academic organisations and networks and the team has never failed to deliver. Such long term business collaborations are few and far between but Bill Muir and his colleagues have made technical and complex partnerships an easy decision because they continuously delight customers with a combination of innovative design, aesthetic presentation and delivering on time. I have no hesitation in endorsing them and would always recommend them to potential clients.
