Design services provided by Kieran showed a real understanding of my business and a passion to help it succeed. Even with a short deadline Kieran was able to produce a creative and distinctive advert and a well written expansive editorial about my business. I am always happy to recommend him to others.

Kieran has supported Yellow for some years now and during this time he has provided us with all aspects of design support, including design consultancy, branding, website creation, marketing communications material and general design support. He is very creative and an important part of our marketing effort.

We have since been delighted by all the work he has done for us and are looking forward to working closely with him as our business grows.

Liam Cresswell - ChemClarity

It was refreshing to work with an experienced, professional graphic designer who quickly understood what we wanted to achieve at Scoops Diner. We provided the bare bones and Kieran fleshed it out to create a spectacular end product design. Aside from the graphic design, I found Kieran to be a warm, genuine, humorous and down to earth chap who pro-actively gave positive and constructive advice on other aspects of our business. I have already and will continue to recommend Kieran to other businesses for his design services work.



Aftab Rehman - Scoops Diner

The work that you carried out for me was absolutely what I was looking for. From concept to completion and in particular what struck me the most was the fact that nothing was to much trouble to make sure I was happy with the end product which has certainly given my business the professional edge.



Chris Poplar - CJP Engineering Services

We are really happy with the comprehensive branding solution that Kieran has put together. It was very important for LEL to have impact and be visible to the public as well as supporting the cyclists with essential kit. Kieran seamlessly brought together multiple elements to give the brand continuity and help position LEL as a noteworthy cycling event.



Danial Webb - London Edinburgh London

Thank you for designing such a distinctive and versatile logo for me, Kieran. I have been able to use the different versions of it for different purposes, whilst still keeping my branding consistent. The logo fully meets the design brief and I am very happy with it. I look forward to working with you again.



Llinos Hobson - Textile Deli

Kieran did a terrific job with the Henmore Health branding and the solution expertly met the brief we provided. It was great to work with a professional brand designer who offered significant value for money and someone we would be happy to recommend.

Kieran understood the importance of embedding local culture in a brand that enjoys its heritage but is strong enough to venture anywhere. We are proud of Henmore Health, proud of the brand and proud to serve the people of Ashbourne where it was born. Few I think can capture this in graphic design the way Kieran has. Thank you.



Danny Smart - Henmore Health

Sincerely enjoyed working with Kieran.

From start to finish we received nothing but professional and quality customer service. I never once had to chase anything up! The end product was a set of logos that we really love and that met the brief provided.

Kieran was not the cheapest designer out there but there is definitely a high level of quality and service, you get what you pay for!

I unreservedly recommend his services to anyone in need of a talented professional graphic designer! Thanks again Kieran, look forward to working with you again in future!

Logo Project Delivery, What Files Should You Expect? »

At some point in the discussion of a new branding project, the client will almost always ask what files they expect to receive. At first, I found this an odd query, although perfectly valid, my assumption was alway that I’d supply every file they’d need, why would I design a logo and do anything less?


Logo Design in 2017 »

Lets cut to the chase, I’ll assume you’re reading this because are looking for a logo?

Good, because designing logos is what I do.
