Testimonials

Thanks to my clients for saying some very nice things about me and the projects we’ve worked together on over the years…

“Denise is a real breath of fresh air. Talented, fun, devil may care kind of attitude but ALWAYS nails the brief and over delivers in terms of creative genius and a real joy to work with. Always willing to go the extra mile, she works long hours when necessary and brings a classy kind of poise and guile to her work that leaves you begging for more.”

BARRY FLAHERTY GLOBAL BUSINESS DEVELOPMENT & ALLIANCES, JITTERBIT

“Having worked with Denise over a number of projects I have found her to be able to integrate straight into our internal processes, instantly pickup the required brief, and deliver this working alongside us and our clients.

Denise’s attention to detail is impeccable and the creative flair that she brings is invaluable, not only to the process but also the impact and reaction from clients.”

RICHARD CONWAY FOUNDER AND CEO, CHILDCARE.CO.UK

“Thank you so much Denise, for your great work and for managing to make a very demanding team think very highly of you. Out of all the freelancers we had help us, you and Dean came out the other end shining. I’m quite sure that when work expands and we need freelance support again, I don’t just speak for myself when I say you will be at the top of the list. Great job.”

DAVID BARDELL EXECUTIVE CREATIVE DIRECTOR, CREATIVE BRIDGE

“When Riders for Health redesigned our website in 2007 Denise led the creative work behind the project for Seventy9. Denise supplied us with creative results that transformed our online communication. The design was clean, contemporary, and was so strong that it shaped all our communications for the next five years.”

MATTHEW HANN COMMUNICATIONS MANAGER, RIDERS FOR HEALTH

“I worked with Denise on a number of Email Marketing projects using a number of different platforms. Denise’s key understanding of the twin aspects of Bold, Creative and Inventive design, and the technical understanding of the HTML required specifically for Email Marketing is second to none.

I also tasked Denise with designing and coding an e-shot for a completely bespoke system, with it’s own programming language, and she was able to deliver a fantastic and functional design. Highly recommended.”

JOF DAVIES MTD CNC

“I first engaged Denise to work on a web innovation project in 1999, when she was co-director of a small, newly formed design agency. The talent and energy were manifest. I knew I had to give her team a chance to grow and shine. We worked very closely on the design and shared many ideas… the result was a dynamic, successful e-commerce community portal.

I have no doubt that Denise’s Creative Direction and personal qualities helped make that project fly!

We have subsequently worked together on other client projects. Denise is not just an excellent designer, she’s a real ideas person with whom I’ve shared lots of ideas, energy and inspiration over the years.”

ALISON WOODING FORMER MARKETING DIRECTOR, PURPLE SOFTWARE

“Denise has a rare quality in that she is able to balance both stunning design skills with the ability to develop complex technical websites and systems. As my manager at dsp creative (Now Verto) she was always helpful, friendly and well liked by all around her. She is a credit to any team she is involved with.”

PHILIP WARD HEAD OF WEB DEVELOPMENT, VERTO UK LTD

“It has been a pleasure working with Denise over the last few years. Her diverse experience and considered insights are invaluable to the projects she directs and contributes to.

Denise consistently delivers superb creative flair in all printed and digital communication, infused with extensive end-user, market and technical considerations. Denise always demonstrates great intuition and balanced viewpoints, grounded by her commercial experience and cultural awareness, also making her a thorough and decisive strategist.

The breadth of her expertise is only outshone by her thirst for delivering fresh creative communication and commitment to exceeding her own very high expectations.”

JAMES TAYLER DIGITAL UX/UI DESIGNER

“I was at an event recently and someone commented on how good my branding is. Nothing about the music, just the branding. Thanks for that.”

Writing for your Brand

Getting your brand right is critical for your business – you know that, or you wouldn’t be here – and once you’ve got it, that’s a big piece of the business puzzle sorted. But it all takes time.
