word on the street is...

"Mary was recommended to us from an Art Director I used to work with at Elle and Tatler. He said she was the best and he was right. 
We have two companies and we asked Mary to design logos for both of them. Mary listened and understood both concepts (each very different from the other). She produced a choice of superb designs for us to choose from. We were able to modify them if we so wished, but they were compelling
on delivery.
We have a lot to be thankful to Mary for. She gave us two strong, yet fresh identities for us to build our brands. 

Thank you Mary."

Geoff Langan

Director at Orbitance

"Having worked with Mary for a number of years, I have first-hand experience of her imagination, creativity and execution which I have found to be exceptional. She is a gifted creative who also understands the limitation of budgets, successful client management and interpreting briefs - no matter how sketchy! She is well-versed in many of the Adobe Creative Suite tools and programs and also worked remotely very successfully using company VPN access. She is extremely hard-working, very conscientious, motivated and an extremely warm and friendly individual and also possesses that rare quality in Creatives - attention to detail.

I have thoroughly enjoyed working with her and would have no hesitation in recommending her".

Bob Murray

Managing Director at The Practice Buddy

"Mary is a true delight to work with. Attentive, discerning and unafraid to challenge the status quo. She has a keen eye for detail and will always go the extra mile to delight her clients. She was intrinsic in the branding process of our nano distillery and product launch of our signature gin Jitterbug. Speakeasy Spirits UK will be forever grateful to her".

Mick Fairless

Speakeasy Spirits UK Limited

"Mary provided us with guidance and advice when it came to designing our company logo for virtual-realities ltd. We provided her with an initial brief that included our company culture and design thoughts. Her passion and expertise translated our thoughts in to a shortlist of superb designs, which were then swiftly executed in to a finished logo. This logo will now spearhead our company and brand. Thank you once again Mary for the superb work.
I would have no hesitation in working with you again in the future".

Piers Ledger

Managing Director at Virtual Realities Ltd

"Mary was a delight to work with and always provided great output at a reasonable cost and on time. Mary understands the importance of the Canon brand and the policies and rules that go with it which makes my life a lot easier. Mary also shows her creative flair in coming up with new ideas that make a difference. Lastly, but by no means least, Mary is a very nice person - attentive and flexible resulting in an easy working relationship".

"Mary did an amazing job at creating a brand that totally reflects my vision and values and I couldn’t be happier with the end result. She was with me from the very start of my rebrand, helping me to get creative and think outside the box when choosing a name. Mary’s passion and knowledge of the wellness industry left me feeling totally relaxed and confident she would deliver... and that she did! Thanks again for our the fresh new look, I love it."

Lorna Holloway

"Mary worked with me over a number of years including a re-branding project and putting our marketing on a more professional level with a constructive approach creating continuity of our brand across the various marketing platforms we use. Her creative flair and ability to grasp the essence of our business, along with her attention to detail produced material of the highest quality which really helped to grow our brand. She was always a pleasure to work with, warm, friendly, enthusiastic, and always willing to go the extra mile to help us meet our deadlines. I would highly recommend her and her work."
