Ellen created a fantastic design for our International Mountain Running event. We needed a logo that captured the dynamic spirit, energy and vigor of a World under 18 Championships taking place in the heart of the Lake District. Ellen absolutely nailed it within the time frame & budget promised. Were delighted with it. Ellen was a pleasure to work with & I'd recommend her without reservation.

Ellen has designed a new logo, and we love it! She was very easy to work with, and she kept to the timescale we agreed on. We will definitely use her again for any design work, and we highly recommend her.

Ellen is simply a joy to work with. She is creative, intuitive and takes time to really hear what is perhaps difficult for the client to articulate. She produced a refreshed logo that captures the essence of what I do, how I do it and why. When I shared the final design with a close colleague and friend she said: 'this is just so you!' Ellen produced a design that is going to be at the heart of my new website. She produced exactly what I had hoped for and more. The logo captures the message that emotional intelligence works! I wholeheartedly recommend her without reservation.

I had a great time working with Ellen, she took a long list of things I liked about other people's logos and managed to create a unique and fun logo that encompassed all of those things. As a result of completely understanding my business and my personal tastes, we had very few revisions and as a result the process was swift and painless. I will definitely be using Ellen again!

I approached Ellen to assist me with the design of my new company logo, following a decision to rebrand. I was keen to have a contemporary bespoke design that allowed flexibility of use across the social, online and print media’s I use to publicise my business. She grasped my design ideas straight away and produced what I think is an amazing design in a very short space of time. The investment in her time, skills and service was definitely worth it.

This is the second time we have worked with Ellen, and once again we are really satisfied with the end result. Ellen understood our design concept and our audience really well, but what was really great is that she had a plethora of fresh ideas to contribute. This helped the design process immensely and meant that the excellent final product could not have been accomplished without her creativity and experience.

The project to create a quirky sheepdog character to represent rural broadband across Yorkshire had tight deadlines and a strict sign-off procedure, but Ellen’s flexible and professional approach meant we kept well within our timescales with ease. Ellen often provided us with work and proofs in advance of deadlines which really helped the project to stay on track, and communication was never an issue. Overall we are deeply satisfied and would work with her again in the future.

The implementation of the new strategies for the Yorkshire Air Museum required literature redesign and commissioning of a new e-commerce platform, both contracts were awarded to Ellen after a formal tendering process.

The tendering process is not a simple case of who provides the lowest price; it is defined by the suppliers’ portfolio presentation, initial ideas and understanding of the complex brand DNA.

Working with Ellen has been fantastic; she is very personable and has a great knack of extracting exactly what I want from my rather incoherent descriptions. The finished products look amazing, crisp, clear and most of all professional.

Ellen will be on my preferred suppliers list for many years to come, she is a piece of design treasure.

Ellen has provided all of the graphic design services for Durham Students' Union since I started the post in September, most of which has been required with very tight time-scales. Ellen has delivered each brief on time, and has gone out of her way to help in ensuring we have the finished product when it is needed by.

Ellen has worked on a number of projects mainly student facing, but also more corporate documents. Her work is fresh, creative and we always get extremely positive feedback on the quality of design.

Ellen is a pleasure to work with and I would have no hesitation in recommending Ellen or her work.

I’ve had the opportunity to work with Ellen on our Cyber Security Magazine CyberTalk for the last few issues. Her exceptional, innovative designs have been consistent throughout every edition and have maximised the readability of the magazine giving it a solid identity. Ellen is always enthusiastic, professional and repeatedly goes that extra mile to help and provide advice. It is always a pleasure to work with Ellen on projects and I would recommend her to anyone. If you’re looking for a professional, passionate designer and require outstanding, refreshing designs that ooze quality, Ellen is your lady!

Ellen has produced outstanding work for the Students' Union during the time I have been with the organisation. Her work is versatile and enables us to communicate with both corporate stakeholders and students alike through a variety of channels. The design is of an exceptional standard and she always delivers above and beyond what is asked of her and she is trusted absolutely to incorporate our values into evrything that she produces.

An absolute delight to work with. Ellen took time to listen to my business aspirations, and as I have no prior design experience, was able to guide me really well through the process. As a result of the time she had invested in understanding my business, she really "got" what I am looking for in a design. She also works to schedule & with precise attention to detail - I would highly recommend Ellen.

Having approached Ellen with an undefined wish list for our rebranding, she very quickly provided us with a range of creative and fitting options which suited us to a tee. We now have a complete and coherent set of stationery we are proud to distribute, and a fabulous new website. Quick, efficient, creative and friendly - we highly recommend her!
