“SHARED creative understood the core business objectives of Dolce Forno and created a bespoke social media strategy on how and why we should step into digital marketing
We previously had no social media presence. Now, we have fresh new content from our website that has been distributed on platforms such as Twitter, Facebook and Instagram which has and will continue to help us become more visible online.
SHARED creative also produced engaging and creatively written article blogs for our website that provide visitors more information not only about the business but also the products we provide.
The set-up of our social media pages and content marketing from our website is accessible 24/7 meaning that online users can find and communicate with Dolce Forno at any place and any time.”
I was given the name of Shared Creative by Philip Harris (Signs Express, Aylesbury) whom I am in contact with through our local village hall and the local cricket team. He mentioned to me he knew a local website designer. My website had initially been done by a young lad in the village as part of his A Levels and whilst fine at the time it was in dire need of improving and updating. I contacted Stuart Miller at Shared Creative and he came out to see me at the pub at my convenience and very promptly. I explained what I required and he listened and came back to me with a number of options. Like many small businesses cost is vital and Stuart understood this and helped me as much as possible but within a quite tight budget.
He came to see me on a second occasion and showed me a rough idea of how the new site would look - I was impressed even at this stage. The style and ease of using the site was fabulous and from my point of view I could change and alter the site myself - and for someone whose computer skills are questionable this was marvellous!
On a third and final occasion Stuart came to see me with the final site and all snagging issues resolved - I am a very happy customer. Since then we have been in touch on a number of occasions and Stuart and Shared Creative have been most helpful. In fact they got in touch with me when my site went down for some reason - I had not noticed but they had and quickly resolved the issue.
I would happily refer anyone to use Shared Creative

Shared Creative listened to what we had to say, and came back with some fantastic designs that hit the mark straight away. We were particularly impressed at how they remained sympathetic to our old design, so we were not throwing away 31 years of identity, and what they produced is a true evolution of our brand. Since then, we have commissioned all of our stationery to be designed by Shared Creative, plus any marketing tools. All look good, all require little input from us and all are delivered in a speedy fashion.

I engaged Shared Creative to create and establish a new Brand, Website and Social Media infrastructure. From the outset Stuart and Ian’s’ communication, engagement attention to detail and ultimately the quality of each element produced was fantastic. Compared to many other organisations in the same field the effort and time spent, by Stuart and Ian, learning about the company, the strategy and vision was impressive which has contributed to the relevance of the finished product. Always contactable and quick to respond leaving you with a real sense that you are a valued customer that they genuinely care about. It has been a pleasure working with Shared Creative and I look forward to continuing to develop our working relationship over the coming years.
The Eight Bells Pub – Long Crendon
With any supplier it is important to feel that the ethos and beliefs behind the service on offer is in-line with yours. With Shared Creative this really shone through from the first phone call.
There was no glossy sales pitch, just a simple and clear demonstration of their abilities along with an understated professionalism. When you are short on time, which we all are, you don’t want to waste too much time on the niceties, you just want to get the job done.
During the first meeting to discuss a brief, I felt there was more listening than telling, which is where I found myself at other web site designers. Stuart and Ian have a fantastic knack of quietly taking everything on board and then effortlessly delivering above expectation.
Following a successful launch, the on-going support is still there and always with lightening quick response. I can’t fault the service Shared Creative have provided and it’s lovely to soak up the compliments from our website visitors!
North Mill Stoves
I am very happy with the service that Shared Creative provided. My website looks great and the functionality on it is perfect for my business. Clients are now able to book and pay courses online solving a real administration nightmare. I've had lots of excellent feedback from my clients about the site. The process to develop it was smooth and responsive. I always felt listened to and work was carried out quickly and efficiently. I would thoroughly recommend Shared Creative to anyone looking for expert design and web services. I'm really happy I went with them!
Ian and Stuart have been great guys to work with, very patient and professional, they gave us exactly what we wanted on a pretty tight budget. The site looks awesome and puts us streets ahead of other clubs in the county, probably even the whole country! Adding photos and making changes is dead simple (even us farmers can manage it!) and we're getting fresh faces every week, soon we'll have more members than we know what to do with! Can't wait to see what they'll cook up for us next time we come calling. Cheers lads!
Aylesbury Young Farmers Club
We're so pleased with the new school website, the new design is exactly what we wanted. One of the major plus points is the ease of which we can update the website. Everyone is getting involved, from the Headteacher writing a daily blog, to the teachers adding photos of recent activities and the Administration Team keeping the newsletters up to date so parents are kept informed with all communications from the school. The training sessions have been really easy going and tailored to our needs.

Shared creative are doing a wonderful job with my website and eNewsletter marketing. The designs are clear, colourful and very professional. Even better is the service I receive when I need something updating. Changes are made quickly and efficiently. They have also given me one-to-one training so I can update and test any images myself, which in my profession makes it so much easier for me to just sit down for 5 mins and get on with it.
We already had a logo and flyer created before we met SHARED creative. They produced a website that complemented our existing brand which meant everything tied in perfectly.
