I have worked with Ellen for almost 20 years as a large business and now as an independent management consultant. She is customer focussed and always manages to turn a brief into something creative that meets the needs of the client. She goes the extra mile to ensure that you get what you want, in an efficient and timely manner and is responsive to feedback. I would highly recommend Ellen Longhorn design if you want an excellent and professional designer.

Ellen has created an absolutely perfect cover for my new book, and it's already won praise before the book's published. She took an idea and a photo, grasped the concept at once, and interpreted my requirements with flair and imagination. Every step of the process has been a joy, and I would highly recommend her services.

Thank you so much Ellen Longhorn You listened carefully, thought hard about what would work and what was needed. It’s clear you put your heart and soul into making this logo work for Anti Racist Cumbria capturing exactly what was needed. I know I speak for the whole team when I say it represents perfectly what we are about. Thank you ????

Ellen was commissioned to come up with a makers mark logo for me to use on my wood working projects. Ellen very quickly grasped the brief, which I think was a little off the norm, and came up with several creative ideas. Truthfully I could have picked more than one idea but nevertheless there was one that really stood out and I feel truly represents my work. Ellen reacted very quickly to the initial brief and I would have no hesitation in recommending her services.

It's been a delight working with Ellen on designs for my new venture. From the initial consultation and scoping of a brief to giving opinions on how my business will be perceived and viewed she has delivered at every turn. Tku

Ellen did a brilliant job of creating a new logo and associated branding for the Fell Runners Association. The designs needed to encapsulate a niche and not widely understood sport but Ellen grasped what was required and delivered a great result. We were especially impressed with her willingness to adapt the logo through many iterations since we only started to realise what we wanted after Ellen's first design ideas were presented. Highly recommended, many thanks!

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 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 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 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.
