Recommendations



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!

Mo, In The Bun LTD, Director



Mo Khan - In the Bun

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

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

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

…we would like to thank you for all your hard work and patience in designing the new IPC website. The feedback was overwhelmingly positive and people think it looks excellent.

So thank you.



Jonny Gibson - International Presbyterian Church

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

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 were a new business start-up looking to create a fun but professional image for our company. After talking with a number of graphic designers we chose Kieran, who appeared to be the best fit for us. 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.



Andrew Jenner-Dyer - Skyland Soft Play

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.



Andy Kevins - Yellow Group

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.



Trevor Ellis - Automated Gateways

I started working with Kieran a few months back when he helped me brand a new company. I can’t say enough about him. He’s professional, genuine, talented and is very knowledgeable on a range of topics. If you’re looking for a Graphic Designer in the Derby area, contact Kieran.

BROCHURE, FLYER & PRINT DESIGN

Despite the world moving to the web, creating printed materials is often a key marketing aspect for many businesses.

For example, getting a quality brochure into your customers hand will set you apart from the rest and help build trust.

WEB SITE DESIGN & DEVELOPMENT

There are very few businesses who can avoid a web presence these days. I craft sites that show off your products or services to their best, that visitors can find and users can connect with.

Kieran Harrod Design

  • Museum Guidebook - Crich Tramway Village As a family favourite the call from Crich Tramway Museum was very welcome and exciting! They were looking for work on a new guidebook to sell to their visitors packed with information not available anywhere else in the Museum as well as providing a route to explore the site. Since 1959 the Crich Tramway Village and National Tramway Museum have created a unique visitor attraction out of the spoil of a disused Derbyshire quarry. Initially intended as a space to preserve and repair retired tramway cars it has since developed into a fully fledged attraction with working tram routes indoor exhibition spaces nature walks and more as well as facilities for visitors to eat drink and explore the site. Their existing Guidebook had served them well for 5 years but sales were declining and the content was getting dated especially as the recent years had brought a number of rapid changes and improvements. The refreshed Guidebook was to be packed with new content images and information. I worked alongside the team at Crich to design the Guidebook alongside their brand guidelines. The Crich team were keen to provide a clean clear look to the Guidebook this involved stripping back some of the more over-decorative elements of the brand and streamline fonts and photography frames some of which had given other marketing materials a seaside tram feel but didnt encompass the wider tram history the museum explored. The book is compact easy to handle whilst visiting and utilises well-sized text carefully set with a selection of great images of the Tramway Village in action as well as historical images of the site as it developed. An especially interesting spread includes a timeline of the sites history the arrivals of each tramcar and the progress of the site from hobby enthusiasts storage to a popular local day out. The final printed piece a 52-page perfect bound book feels excellent to hold the print provided made a great job of the production. You can buy the Guidebook from the Tramway Village when you visit or if its perhaps a little too far purchase it online from the Crich Tramway website. The project was great to work on the folks at the Tramway Village a pleasure to collaborate with and Im delighted with the result of the hard work of everyone involved.
