The Creation of a Logo in 100 seconds.
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.
…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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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!
At ValueLicensing we have a very technical and unique product to sell, which is certainly not easy to market and promote. Therefore my brief to Kieran was a complex and challenging one, as we had never had sales collateral designed before. Kieran was incredibly professional, efficient and creative in finding the right solution and imagery for our small business messages. His attention to detail and skills were very apparent, and we will certainly be using his services again for other design projects!
After doing extensive research searching for a graphic designer for our company Logo we discovered Kieran's profile. Noticing that he had previously received a top industry award for one of his recent design campaigns we decided to contact him. From the initial discovery phone call through to the completion of design Kieran was very friendly, professional and most of all highly talented and creative in his approach. He created an excellent logo for us and we will now be using him for future designs and creative projects, I would not hesitate to recommend Kieran!
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.
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 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 him. 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.
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.
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.
