My existing clients think I deliver a fantastic service. I’ll always try to meet face-to-face initially, to get to know you and get under the skin of your business and your creative needs. From then on, I’ll stay in touch, deliver and try to go beyond what you originally thought you needed.
Enough from me though … here’s what my clients think:
Amy Grenham – Marketing Manager | Desynit
“Christian did a fantastic job on the Desynit re-brand project. He works quickly and is able to take on board complex briefs and turn them into fantastic hard-working creative. He is extremely reliable, delivers everything you ask for and more, and is very easy to work with. Highly recommended.”
Julie Laming – Director | Planning Ventures
“Christian produced a fantastic brand for Planning Ventures, which included a range of logos, stationery and website. He understood my brief perfectly in terms of the style and image that I wanted the brand to achieve. Such an easy person to work with, he made the creative process of designing a brand from start to finish a joy.”
Neil Crawford – Salesforce architect | NC squared
“Worked with Christian on a number of projects, everything from brochures to logos and icons to branded clothing! Can’t rate him highly enough, extremely talented designer but more than that he’s intelligent and understands and predicts what will work and what you will like. He’s always produced spot on results with only a minimal brief. A rare find.”
Helen Woodcock – Business Development | KETL Ltd
“Christian has built us a series of templates that we can use in our communications. Christian was able to turn the project around really efficiently by listening to me, making suggestions and providing us with design assets that I can insert into my own software to use as needed. I would definitely recommend Christian for design projects and we will be working with him in the future.”
Rachael Wheatley – Director | Bluegreen Learning
“We really loved his work – both the design and the strategic thinking behind it. At the initial meeting he listened to what we were about and what we wanted to do, and came back with a proposal that fitted our needs. The output has started to shape our brand and how it is articulated in design-terms – bold, eye-catching, creative. Would highly recommend him.”
Karen Meager – Lead Consultant & Director | Monkey Puzzle Training LTD
“He thinks about design in a very practical way, which doesn’t take anything away from the impact of his creativity. Everything he has created for us we use all the time and our new and existing clients have commented on how brilliant and professional our materials are. He also thought beyond what we were asking for to recommend some small quick things that add impact and make a big different to how we present ourselves.”
Lucy MacLennan – Director | Food Technical Expert
“I really enjoyed working with Christian and would highly recommend him to anyone. He was able to interpret my ideas into a design that exceeded my expectations, was highly organised and really responsive to all communications.”
Jonathan Rees – Facilitrainer | Making Teams Work
“I was pointed in Christian's direction by an expert in the Valuable Content field, as my website was badly in need of a re-vamp and re-focussing on what I actually do. Christian asked me a lot of questions to dig into what my business is all about and then came up with the usual 3 ideas for a new home page. What was different was that he'd really thought about everything we'd talked about, and he'd noticed something that I was completely blind to – and made changes accordingly. I was so pleased with the design that I asked him to extend his scope to the entire site. I'm confident that the new version will resonate well with my customers and build new business for me. Which is what it's all about. So don't vacillate any more if your website isn't working, just contact Christian, talk it through, and prepare to be impressed and enlightened. He's really friendly, so you'll enjoy the experience too!”
Mike Clarke – Director | Clark Creatives
“I was initially skeptical about whether a “graphics guy” would be able to come up with something to visually communicate what my company is about. I’ll hold my hands up and admit I was wrong to be skeptical! The branding Christian recently did for Clarke Creatives is superb. Quick responses, prompt delivery of the artwork, expert designs (in all the formats I might ever want). And he’s a nice guy to work with.”
Georgie Collins – Owner/Maker | Rock That Biscuit Jewellery
“Christian more than justifies a 5 star review. His service is professional at all times and he has been an absolute pleasure to work with. I wanted a website that was engaging, but simple and easy to use and Christian was with me every step of the way. I would like to thank you for the time and effort you put into the creativity, design and development of my website. I have had excellent feedback and am extremely happy with the end result.”
Tom Mornement – Director | Purple House HR Recruitment Ltd
“At Purple House Recruitment we wanted to try and develop a website that wasn’t like all the other boring recruitment websites out there but we were getting stuck, really stuck and frustrated trying to come with something ourselves. Thankfully we were pointed in Christian’s direction by our friends at Valuable Content.
Christian was on the money from the very first meeting, he asked thought provoking questions, showed relevant examples of previous work and he listened to us and what we thought we wanted. We really enjoyed working with Christian and felt at all times that we were in safe hands confident in the knowledge that he would come up with the goods, and he did. We would gladly, happily and confidently recommend Christian and his work to anyone looking to develop their website, he is thoughtful, professional, honest and above all genuinely creative.”
Tom Sandford – Content Marketing Strategist | Future Content
“I've recommended Christian to many of our clients and will continue to do so. We recently engaged him to develop the Future Content brand, creating visual brand guidelines, sales decks and template proposal and presentations. The results were fantastic. And the funny thing is - I always knew that they would be. Christian involves you in the design process, is highly professional and goes beyond design to ask 'why do you need this?' 10/10.”
Aimee Blyth – Marketing Manager | Vysiion
“It has been a pleasure working with you Christian on the design of our micro-site Crown Campus. You managed to captured my vision and you turned it into a fully functioning website, which I didn't think was possible with the short time frame we had. You also never complained when I made 101 changes to a simple info-graphics and you didn't mind the 8 am calls to just touch base.
I'm sure everyone will agree this website is of the highest quality and a complete contrast to our main website.”
Abbey Fortescue – Key Account Manager | B2B Compliance
“Christian has done absolute wonders with provide excellent designs and supporting our re-brand! We always look forward to seeing what's coming next after we've asked for a design, and always blown away by what we receive. Super professional and always helpful, great communicator and a pleasure to work with. Highly recommend Christian to anyone!”
Jo Twiselton – Change, communication, engagement and leadership coach | Twist Consultants
“Christian supported me with the design and delivery of a brand new website. He quickly grasped the key points about my business to build a site that really reflects me, my values, the way I work and how this supports clients. As a result, I've got a brilliant showcase of my business – I've had great feedback, telling me that it really sounds like me, is warm, welcoming and personal. Christian delivered this all with great patience (it took much longer than we both expected for reasons outside our control) and expertise. Most of all, he helped to make this process really clear and straightforward and his understanding of Squarespace - and ability to get that across to me! - has made this whole thing relatively easy. He's a pleasure to work with!”
Alex Swann – Portfolio Marketing Director, The Marketing Centre
“Christian worked as part of a team to launch a new website for Cansford Laboratories. As anybody in marketing knows, design is the part of any project where everybody has a view! And the big reveal is the bit I dread! But working with Christian the process was seamless. Cansford was delighted from offset, which made my job so much easier. Christian is not only very creative, but takes the time to really understand a client – as well as a brief. The project was therefore on brief, on brand and on budget. Highly recommended!”
Philip Jane – Owner, Copperband Limited
“Really enjoyed working on the logo designs with Christian, he is easy to work with, polite, efficient and very good at what he does. As a new start up money was tight and his rates were also very reasonable! I am really happy with the result and have been complimented on how apt for my business and professional it is.”
Andy Youings – Marketing Manager, Fizz Brand Experience
We approached Christian via a mutual connection after he was recommended for a project to completely redesign our company website at the end of 2018/early 2019. From the outset it was clear what a great creative partner Christian was going to be. He quickly understood our requirements and was able to give our established website a much-needed refresh while maintaining a look and feel that was familiar to our long-standing clients.
Not only was Christian able to create a website that looked and functioned fantastically, but was also able to cleverly design it in such a way so that it provides great flexibility for adding future content and functionality and remains adaptable to users ever-changing channels to access web content (mobile, etc.).
No less important was Christian's ability to communicate clearly with ourselves with other key stakeholders involved in the process (such as external copywriters and web developers) to ensure that the designs worked for all concerned. Where any hurdles were encountered, it was always for clearly explained reasons, together with carefully considered alternative solutions.
We hugely enjoyed working with Christian and have been delighted with the work he has produced for us. We will be using him again for future projects and would have no hesitation in recommending this talented designer to others.
Sophie Duncan – Deputy Director, National Co-ordinating Centre for Public Engagement
“We were delighted to work with Christian. He was incredibly professional, from the initial enquiry, to the fulfilment of the brief. The job required a quick turnaround, and we were impressed by the speed with which he both understood our brief and created a really effective response. We were delighted with the infographic he created for us. I would not hesitate to recommend him to others.”
