“We found the presentation and follow up very helpful and thought provoking. We felt that you grasped the nature of our business very quickly and understood the problems and opportunities we face, and that you were able to advise us accordingly. With your help, we hope to build on the design process that we had already started before we met you, by applying the concepts to our whole business approach.”
“We have a visual identity that we are absolutely delighted with. Because of the process we went through, we knew we had selected the right design agency. We expect to achieve increased sales because we have an identity that inspires us and reflects our uniqueness. Lynne Elvins, our design advisor, provided an invaluable advisory role. Thank you!”
“Having the design adviser involved helped significantly. The experience of brand awareness and marketing in general was invaluable, and the ability to help us make decisions and steer us in the right direction, whilst remaining impartial, was extremely helpful. We also found that having an outside influence enabled us to get a 360-degree perspective of our design requirements. The design adviser encouraged and led us, with relative ease, through what could have potentially been a very time-consuming and stressful process.”
"It has given confidence to all our employees and helped them see the future, and be more confident about their future."
“This is a very professional service. The programme is great but it could potentially be improved by providing some sort of continuity or ongoing mentoring covering design, brand and marketing.”
"The whole project process has made us much more aware of how design can help our business expand. The amazing thing for us was the 40% increase in the number of hits on our website - this far exceeded our expectations."
“The programme helped me see my business through the eyes of the customer. Also, the advice that I received about how to use my ‘dead-space’ more effectively was very helpful.”
“We developed a very good working relationship with Kathryn Hughes who gave us a completely new perspective on our business and how it would be seen by members of the public.”
"We expect more private clients, more 'right fit' employee' attraction and organic growth at a minimum of 25% per annum."
