We engaged Ellen to work on a brand refresh for our charity (St Mary's Hospice, Ulverston). She was great to work with, move quickly and was very responsive to any changes or ideas we had. I found Ellen a pleasure to work with on the project and have no hesitation in recommending her.

Ellen was brilliant when she worked with us to design a report summarising the findings of a large research project. Communication was excellent, she always provided drafts in good time, and she took on board any feedback we provided. As well as demonstrating her own creativity in the initial design, she was always happy to respond to our ideas and work them into the design too. We ended up with a report design that was extremely well received by the team, and also the intended audience. Thank you, Ellen.

We recently used Ellen to redesign our corporate literature after a rebrand and she understood everything we wanted from the brief I gave her. Everything looks a lot more modern and matches our rebrand perfectly. Ellen was great at offering her thoughts on the designs and what she thought would look good which was really helpful. All proofs were provided to us quickly, and the same with any changes that needed making.

I would definitely recommend Ellen to anyone looking for any design work for their business.

I needed a Logo reimagining and after 1 phone call to describe my business and my idea, Ellen was able to create a Logo that I am delighted with and will be able to use across all my branding, marketing and social media.

Friendly, unfussy and helpful service, especially with my lack of technical knowledge.

Extremely pleased with what’s been created so far and already looking to the next steps with Ellens guidance.

Ellen is friendly, approachable and professional. She responded very quickly to my inquiry and was quick to understand the project I was working on. I'm delighted with the designs that Ellen has created for me and I'm grateful for the advice and help she has given throughout the process. She was very clear about timelines and has met every deadline. I'm looking forward to working with her again in the future.

Ellen designed a new logo for my Photo Booth Company, which needed a branding change. I had some ideas of what I wanted, but Ellen definitely brought style and experienced guidance to the logo/process. Ellen was so approachable, helpful and patient with me even when I was struggling with what I needed (as I am not a technical person!) She was understanding of my needs and what I wanted the branding and new logo to achieve for my business. I would highly recommend her and use her myself again for any future projects. Ellen was also very efficient in her work and I was super surprised how quickly she got my choice of logos back to me - which really helped the process. Her pricing was very straight forward too, which helps when you are making the decisions around rebranding. Thank you so much!!!

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.

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 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.
