“We worked closely with the team to create short and snappy animations that were different to anything we had created before. The whole process was smooth and the team extremely professional. They were particularly supportive when we had to completely change our brief! I would definitely recommend GWCM and hope to work with them again in the future.”Global Campaigns Marketing Manager, Oxford University Press
“GWCM really stepped up to the plate to support the development of a web-presence for a major high-profile international research project led by UEA. They had to complete the initial design, build , deployment, test and hosting against the backdrop of a very tight schedule. The team performed brilliantly and delivered an excellent service.”Professor, University of East Anglia
