“Exeter has been a great base for my business. With low overheads and a good network of friendly, collaborative companies, we’ve been able to take on big projects at a lower lost when compared to that of the well known London based studios. A good broadband connection has also kept up well with the large volumes of data that sometimes need to be transferred between us and our clients. It’s just simply a nice place to live and work.”
