What some of our clients say about us:

Nicholas worked on our SaaS project and delivered important pieces of functionality. He develops fast and if you need something done real quick he also works long hours. We were happy to have him and would hire him again. Thank you, Nicholas. - Thomas Urban, Product Director at Stratact GmbH

Ryszard is a hardworking, conscientious and inventive developer. I had the pleasure of working with him, building a Symfony based stock management and workflow platform for Lush. Ryszard took on the project with a great deal of passion and after gathering all the information he required, went away and built a masterpiece. If any of items of work were vague in description, he was always happy to discuss with the in-house team to find out what we were trying to achieve, and to offer alternative and often better approaches. Ryszard is clearly a well-seasoned Symfony developer and has a dictionary like knowledge of all the current and useful bundles and standard best practices. He is friendly, approachable and has a brilliant sense of humour. Would work with Ryszard again, 100% of the time, every time. - Chris Hemmings, Web Developer at Lush UK & Europe

Ryszard was contracted by Capablue to create from scratch a CMS with several advanced features, for a major project. He exceeded his brief, providing an excellent, easy to use and powerful backend. Flexibly adapting to changeable requirements, working extremely well with the team, Ryszard did a great job with this project. So good in fact, that we re-hired him for another contract. - James Mears, Product Director at Capablue Ltd

I have had the pleasure of working with Nicholas on a number of web development projects. From initial concept through to delivery, his work is of the highest standard and he deals in a professional way with clients and colleagues alike. I would have no hesitation in recommending The Logic House to anyone looking for web development projects. - Simon Wheeler, Account Director, Tag Brand

We have collaborated on several projects from websites for bio-tech companies to complex web-based intranet systems. I love working with Ryszard. Not only are his technical and programming skills excellent, but he is wonderfully creative has a great ability to translate client needs and ideas. He is very professional in his approach but friendly and flexible. Any collaboration with The Logic House has always resulted in an excellent 'product', very happy clients and an enjoyable working experience. - Jane Horwood, Director, Catfish Web Design

I would not hesitate to recommend Ryszard for any type of PHP development. Ryszard helped us create an online database with various aspects including e-commerce and user management for our highest profile client. They were incredibly impressed and any teething issues we have encountered have been dealt with swiftly and humbly. He is a joy to work with and explains things in laymen's terms whilst executing his tasks with an expert skills. Ryszard meets deadlines and is very good at what he does! - Jeremy Read, Brand Fuel Ltd
