What our clients have to say

Cheddar has the most amazing team taking care of our project website for several years now. Our website has a huge database presented in both Chinese and English, which we know was definitely not easy to build or maintain, but Cheddar never let us down. They always respond to all our requests and needs immediately, and do their best to make sure we are taken care of. We are grateful for them!

I’ve relied on Cheddar Media’s wonderful team for three websites and a book-sized report. And every time I’ve been blown away by their popping designs and rigorous craftsmanship that brings the sizzle to even the most dry and technical content. What truly sets them apart is their time and sensitivity – even though we worked remotely – they in Hong Kong and I’m in India-they managed to perfectly capture the very Indian motifs and nuances that I had in mind. I don’t know how they do it, but they always get the job done. Plus+ you wouldn’t find a more fun team to work with!

Cheddar Media is an amazing marketing company! The have been instrumental in helping me market my psychology practise, Adler Family Center, at its conception and have been responsible for its steady growth over the past six years. Additionally, the staff at Cheddar Media are both personable and professional, qualities that rarely exist together in one company or organisation.

Heidi and her team have delivered on some tricky projects for me – and delivered very good results in the process. This required tenacity and cultural awareness, as on some of the technical details it was not clear on how to integrate our system to what was needed. That being said it all went well but did require a lot of effort on Heidi’s side. On the design side – all v intuitive and professional. To end this reference – Heidi and her team – are a pleasure to work with.

A rare breed, that’s what Cheddar Media is! They know their game, provide spot-on options and recommendations, deliver and always go above and beyond for their customers, truly unusual in that industry. It is a diverse boutique team you can trust, not many around there, first time I come across one, in my experience. Website design + secure hosting, brand guidelines, after-sale service… you name it, Cheddar will do it! Search no more and give them a call because they’re fast at that too! 😉
