Client Testimonials

Made By Hippo changed our life. Instead of fighting processes and systems that didn’t really work and were never fixed properly because the developer was using old tools and didn’t really understand ecommerce. We moved to systems and processes that just worked and were cheaper, and looked impressive. We are addicted.

Jack Large

Founder and Editor, Cash and Treasury Management File

A while ago we needed a professional for a writing an advanced script that required a sound knowledge of JQuery. Made by Hippo was not only the fastest to respond to the job, they also delivered, within time and budget!

Joris Heyndrickx


Hippo went above and beyond on a recent project collaboration using EE and BrilliantRetail. I am extremely pleased with the work and was truly impressed with their depth of knowledge, skill-set and management capabilities.

Ryan Mendes

Creative Director / Designer, Eight Bit

Showing a great deal of patience and sensitivity to the needs of the client, Hippo provided a strong technical backup to our work which meant that the project launched on time with not only impeccable back-office performance, but also a real understanding of the issues facing a busy design-house.
