Client Testimonials

  • Liz was a fantastic designer to work with - she was creative, responsive and innovative with our resources. She works at a fast pace. She was an absolute pleasure to work with - I'd highly recommend her! We've worked together three times now and each was a great experience.

    Jordan Junge, Programme Director, Social Innovation Exchange
  • Having set out looking for someone to rebrand our business, and knowing enough about branding to be a bit of a pain, we needed someone who could meet some high expectations. This is where Liz stepped in...(her) perspective and approach were exactly what we needed...taking in all the requirements and research necessary to create a brand. My high expectations were genuinely exceeded and blown away.

    Ben Walker, Owner & Director Arise
  • Liz has done some fabulous design work for me. She has worked on brand identity and on website design and produced outstanding results. Liz is able to create brand style guidelines and translate those into web design mock-ups that the end clients have loved. Liz is always able to discuss and explain her work clearly and I recommend her without hesitation.

    Clive Walker, Owner CVW Web Design Ltd
  • I’ve worked with Liz on a number of business projects over many years and she has exceeded our expectations every time. However big or small the project, Liz listens carefully to each brief, and always delivers exceptional material on time and within budget. She is, without doubt, our first choice for all design work.
