Client Stories

IN THEIR OWN WORDS

“Khandiz did an amazing job developing and art directing the www.REALsustainability.org website. She went beyond her brief, to make very helpful recommendations and exceeded expectations, so much so that I asked her to redesign my personal website too www.safia-minney.com. I needed to work with a great communicator, that understands visual language and user journey as well as the aims of my organisations. I highly recommend her.
Safia Minney MBE, Founder, People Tree, Advisor, Author and serial social entrepreneur
Betsy-Reed.com was my second new website build with Vuja De creative. There are many reasons I was delighted to have a reason to work with Khandiz again: working with Khandiz is genuinely a collaboration that results in beautiful outputs. She has a rare ability to grapple with complexity and make it clear. She helped me refine the many facets of my work and approach in a way that really reflected both. Within a matter of weeks, she created a new visual identity, brand guidelines and website that represents what I'm about and what I offer. I can't think of anyone else who could have done it so well.'
Betsy Reed, Speaker. Author. Sustainability Leader.
As a real technophobe, I was very keen on finding someone to help me build my website. I approached Khandiz after seeing the simplicity and clarity of her own website for possible people who could offer me aid in this field - to which she replied she offered website construction. I had a very clear vision and concept for the style of my website, which I articulated to Khandiz and she helped bring to life. She was very accommodating to my ideas and I feel she would be able to interpret a variety of concepts too. As a natural creative and designer she also offered advice to assist the performance of the pages too (e.g. where to add social handles/what pages to add where/what colour schemes blend well together/good fonts to use) I was so pleased with the work we did together on creating my piece. I say "we" because although she only built the barebones and pages to my site - she offered advice and teachings throughout our work together; so I was left equipped tools to continue the editing/design of my site after our work finished.

I booked Khandiz for her Architecture package and she was fantastic. She gave me so many brilliant ideas for my website – some were easy to implement right away, while others were ideas to keep working on. I love the way she delivered the package – two workshops with time in the middle to action and think. I’ve no doubt I’ll use her services again, and would definitely recommend her!
