Hear from our happy customers

"Higher Ground were brought in to lead the UX on a game changing piece of website design at Pacific Magazines & Seven West Media in Australia. Not only did they provide a new way of website planning and strategy, but delivered it in a lean fashion. Rob was an excellent communicator and was able to explain to the traditional (non-digital) parts of the business why certain changes and design features were required to maximise the efficiency of the digital assets we were delivering. I have no hesitation in highly recommending Higher Ground Agency to anyone needing a better way to approach website strategy."

Darren Kerry
Digital Director / Seven West Media

Higher Ground have a real focus on driving more profitability from website design. I have worked with Rob and the team for many years on UX/UI projects. Initially at JCB and more recently on projects for various B2B clients on numerous UX/UI and CRO projects. The results for clients are great looking websites and more leads and sales from their website.
