Commendations

Corporate illustrations, 2011
"The images were just as agreed, delivered within the timescales, and the whole process was remarkably efficient, friendly and professional. Thank you so much, it was a pleasure dealing with you."

Major government report, 2010
"I wanted to congratulate the team for the way you handled and delivered our publication, managing the process to tight timetables and under trying circumstances.

You demonstrated a good understanding of the need to keep costs to a minimum, without cutting corners on quality, together with an understanding of the presentational demands required.

My expectation is that all future outputs will need to follow the example set by this production. A heartfelt thank you from this particular client!"

Magazine, 2010
"Thank you once again for the design – it looks fabulous. It's been a pleasure working with you."

Internal feedback, 2010
"You really bust a gut getting this out to a tight deadline! The excellent feedback will not only stand us in good stead for winning future work with the client, but will also allow us to market to other similar organisations."

Presentation, 2010
"Just a note of thanks to you both for the presentation you gave on Easy read. It filled in a lot of gaps, especially for me, and from discussions afterwards, we all found it very interesting."

Annual report, 2010
"The luminous orange does have a “wow” effect compared to the digital copies. Inner pages are more modern than previously, and the approach is crisp, clean and deceptively simple. Best way logos have ever been presented together,"

Tender, 2009

Thanks for making a happy customer."
